Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love family history and connecting with other amateur genealogists. I live in northwest Nebraska. I'm researching Turner, Fairchild, Mahan, Waters, Pollard, Stockman, Woodruff, Kellogg, Kelly, McCall, Gunderson, Harnett, Spurway, Woodbeck, Squires, Kuk, and Greene, to name a few.

I love old photographs and think they really enhance each memorial. If I add a photo to one of your memorials and you would like it removed, please let me know and I'll delete it. Feel free to use any photos I add in any way you wish.

I believe that a relative's memorial should be with family, not with strangers. I believe that these memorials need to be with people who knew and loved them.

Please use the "edit" button on the memorial when you are requesting a transfer or sending corrections.

The link in the site for Mary Kusuk's brother, John Kusuk should be 73407830. The one that is in Mary Kusuk's memorial goes to an unknown site.

Please correct it. Thank you.

Elsie Henrich Simmons 165067087
Hello BJW,

I recently created a memorial for Elsie in the Oak Hill Cemetery in Janesville, WI. (165067087).

I received and edit for her today with a death date that matches that of your memorial (no cemetery) #158014315.

Are these two ladies the same person? How would you like to handle it?

When I get back there I will search the new cemetery. I did look at both and the only one I found was the one that died in 1899.

I see you posted a picture of Frank on his memorial. Are you by chance related to the family? I would love to talk with you if so. I am related through Catherine's brother Frank Feidler. My email is Would love to hear from you. Thank you!

RE: Joel Barto, #154140028

I have several, but probably the best is the 1920 US Census which lists Joel Sr, Henrietta, Joel Jr. and Florence all living together. Here's the link:

It shows:

Joel Sr is the head of family b. 1858
Henrietta is his wife b. 1858
Joel Jr is his son b. 1887
Florence is his daughter-in-law b.1893

If you need anything else, I'd be glad to assist.
