PLEASE use the "Edit" tab in the upper right hand corner area of the memorial to make your request as this includes all the information I need to make this happen. Working to enter all of the recorded Hall County burials. Most of the small non Grand Island graves have been entered, and as time allows, will work on photo verification.

RE: Nellie M or Lucy C Hard
Thank you very much for your consideration. I would do the same if I came across pictures like that. I always wonder who the people are in the photos on the wall of places like Cracker Barrel and why the pics are not with their families... I'd like to have the images of the people in your photo album. I haven't found where Clyde is buried yet. What a neat thing to have. :) You can contact me by e-mail. THANKS, Cindy

RE: Nellie M or Lucy C Hard
Hi Kay. Great pic! My Great Grandpa was a Hard but we are from Columbus, OH. I lived in Portsmouth, OH for 10 years and looked up the Ezra Hard & Lucy Hard Earll White & Jonathan Hard family lines. Refresh me about J.T. Hayward. :)

Lena Riss, LOL
I know someone else who had two Magdalenas, except the first one died, and no one knew where she was buried, nor when she died. When the man remarried, the census records just showed one huge blur in the wives. On top of that, the children from the second Maggie's first husband were listed with her second husband's surname. The descendant of this family mess was pulling her hair out. We did finally sort out which kid belonged to who, but she still hasn't found the first Maggie.

I don't know about these Germans and their naming practices, but they sure knew how to keep life interesting! and confusing!

Thank you for getting that correction. I suppose someone just suffered a brief glitch in their brain. It happens to all of us. LOL

Magdalena M. Riss, #75494115
I think this Magdalena is linked to the wrong mother. Her mother was born in 1843/44, and her father in 1840. This Magdalena was born in 1850. I know the parents' birth years is correct, and they did have a daughter named Magdalena, called Lena, b. in 19867, supposedly in Iowa (the census records are confusing), but I think this is the wrong Magdalena for this family.
