Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE use the EDIT to ask for transfers, with your ID # and the PHOTO REQUEST if you want a photo of the stone for EACH person listed. I try to get other family near the one requested in case they are not already listed, but if they are already listed it is nice if you also request them. I print off the requests from the computer, and the "notes" don't show if you ask for other family members. You have my permission to use my photos of the stones for your family records.

It is my wish that everyone is remembered, this is my way of helping make it happen. We all will make mistakes, I'm happy to make changes and transfer loved ones always hoping that you can add to their memorials. I just want to help, when I find more information and send an edit, it is sad when that isn't added. I am so thankful for the ones that put family of ours on, some we had no idea where were, so you can see what a blessing Find A Grave has been.

Today this seems to be the case- Author Unknown
An old man, a boy and a donkey were going to town. The boy rode on the donkey and the old man walked. As they went along the road they passed some people who remarked, "What a shame the old man is walking and the boy is riding." The man and boy thought maybe the critics were right, so they changed positions. Later they passed some people who remarked, "What a shame, he makes that little boy walk." So they then decided they'd both walk. Soon they passed some more people who remarked, "They're really stupid to walk when they have a donkey to ride." So they both rode the donkey. Now they passed some people who shamed them by saying, "How awful to put such a load on a poor donkey?" The boy and man figured they were probably right, so they decided to carry the donkey. As they crossed the bridge, they lost their grip on the donkey and he fell into the river and drowned. The moral to the story? If you try to please everybody, you might as well kiss your ass goodbye!

Having expressed this I have to say, most all of the people are easy to please. There are occasionally some who aren't, it is extremely hard to read people's minds. If you send information try to tell us how you want it added or used. It is really helpful if you send it directly to that persons memorial page, but I'll do my best to add & give credit to you however you get it to me. Thank you all who have sent links and info to make memorials more then just names and dates!

RE: William T. Johnson
Hi, Luella - I am the grandson of the sister of William Johnson (1896-1966). I would like to know if there is any information in the Pawnee Library about Susie A old family photo says her name was EMMA JEAN ARNOLD, but that her brothers nick-named her Susie...she is supposed to have been born in Annawam, Illinois July 22, 1864 - so any verification of this would be wonderful. I know she died in 1899, and was married to William T. Johnson in 1888 (but have no exact date). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Wayne

Yeah, I agree. I love this site also. The brainchild behind Find a Grave was/is wonderful, and the photo volunteers are pretty awesome too!

RE: Donna Cordon
Luella, Wherry Mortuary says that they would not be responsible for the date since they didn't have the service for Donna. I contacted Penwell-Gabel Gibson in Chanute and they will check on it when they get time. Maybe next week??????? Dale

Just goes to show the tiniest bit of information for one is all another may need. Yes, I'm family but given your good karma, I think she's best staying with you. Thanks for all - quite amazing.

RE: Piersons Point Cemetery
Thanks for your comment - YES its been quite an undertaking. I hope to post new photos in the near future of some of the headstones that I have been able to recover and put back together with what peace's I've been able to locate, so you may wish to check from time to time for updates as I get them posted!

RE: John Hecht
Walter and Clarence were my great-uncles. My grandfather was Victor Hecht. Gayle still lives in Pawnee City and is my mom's first cousin. We still run into him occasionally, especially when the Southeast Nebraska Community Band, of which I am a member, plays in the Pawnee City area. Will see if my mom has any photos of John Hecht. He was never married, as was killed by lightning as a single man. Would love to work together with you on all the Hecht/Meader/Mosteller/Lange families!!!!

Thank you, Luella, for all you have contributed to the Bartlett family.

I just now received a neat, early photo of Lill from my brother and added it to her page.

I wonder if I may have your permission to use your grave marker and/or cemetery photos on my family website. Check it out at This is how I'd be using the photos and obituaries I find on Find A Grave, with 'used with permission' in the caption.

Thank you.

RE: Chester Barker & Son
Hi Luella,
You are welcome for the location and photo. I had looked for him before and could not find him. This time I asked the office who was buried next to him--and I found that guy today.
I'm not sure about his son's grave. I looked a lot all around, but there is not good map for that section at the office. I'm not even sure I was looking in the right place. David is supposed to be buried between a 'Tovato' and a 'Murphy', but I couldn't find either of those either.
Good luck,
Dan Phelan
