RE: Dorothy Green Davey
Your welcome for the Nora photo. I currently do not have information on Charles, or photos. When the flu epidemic of 1918 took gramma Doris Green Davey, her children were farmed out. Grandpa Jack was able to keep John Lloyd (my husband's father) on the ranch in Cherry County, Nebraska. The girls were sent to live with Davey relatives in Shubert, Nebraska. Charles went with Nora. I don't even know Mr. Coonley's first name. That's pretty much all I know. Suki Davey

I do have a scanner, but the photo is on Do you know where Nora is buried? I can add the photo to her Find A Grave photo and connect her daughter, Doris. I'm assuming she buried in SE Nebraska...Suki Davey

RE: Dorothy Green Davey
I was in the process of answering your SAC regarding John L. (Jack) Davey Sr. (my husband's grandfather). Yes he died at his daughter's home in Yakima, WA and yes he is buried at Sunny Side in Wilber, NE. Jack's 1st wife is Dorothy Anna (Doris) Green Davey, they married in Beatrice, Gage, Nebraska on December 24, 1907. Doris died in 1918 Prentice, Cherry, Nebraska, but is buried in Mullen, Cherry, Nebraska. Her parents are Charles and Nora Bartlett Green. Jack later remarried Oleva (Leva) Deal Davey. The flu epdemic of 1918 is what Doris died of. Her youngest son, Charles Ray (Chuck) Davey was raised by Charles and Nora Bartett Green. Unfortunately Charles was in California during a police incident, and killed as an innocent by stander in 1930. He was age 23, he had a wife and unborn child, Norma Lyons Davey (wife), Charlene Davey born in 1941...if I understand you, it's your wife who is the Bartlett relative? Suki Davey

Charles W. Green 1853-1897
re: Find A Grave Memorial# 66760767

Hi. I'm working on the siblings of a family of Green's in Ohio, three of whom moved to Nebraska, one to Polk and two to Nemaha counties. One sister, Mary, who stayed in Ohio had a son named C.W. Green born 1848, who is said to have died in Polk county, NE. I am finding no promising Green's in Polk and was wondering if C.W. may have ended up in Nemaha where his other two uncles lived.

I found a 1885 NE census with Charles W. and Nora Green and also their burial in the same cemetery as my grandmother, Elvera Rockemann Green. Elvera was married to Charles Edward Green 1893-1967, who is buried in Lafayette cemetery with his 3rd wife, Alma Stites, and who is also a great-nephew of the aforesaid siblings from Ohio.

So my question is whether you might have additional information on Charles W. that would confirm my hunch about his mother, Mary, in Ohio.

I will be happy to. Incidentally, I and my family lived in Tulsa during World War 2, from July 1942 until April 1946. We lived in the area next to the University, that now has been leveled and now are tennis courts, softball fields, etc. 811 S. Columbia and 2709 E. 10th. I went to Kendall School and Wilson Junior High.

RE: George Hebert Switzer
Jerry, I have added hundreds of memorials to Find A Grave, without seeing the tombstones. Our genealogical society has been collecting death records, including obituaries for Jefferson County, Kansas persons since 1980. We now have about 50,000 of these clipped obits on 3 x 5 cards. Many of these people do have tombstones, but unfortunately many either have had their tombstones destroyed, buried, etc. or there never was a tombstone in the first place. The next time I'm at our Research Center, I'll see what information I had to add Mr. Switzer's name to Find A Grave.
