Bio and Links
I have been interested in genealogy for many years, and love the ability of being able to preserve the monuments of those who came before us via Find-A-Grave. In my spare time I enjoy visting cemeteries in my local area of southern Illinois and also Perry Co. Missouri, and I try to photograph the entire cemetery and add the info to Find-A-Grave. I will also gladly update links and make corrections.

Leora Ault
Please ignore last two messages. My new computer has trigger happy keys. Or something like that.

You are correct that Leora and Anthony are buried in the Peetz Cemetery. The picture was taken by a findagrave volunteer who is a friend of mine. I can only guess that I took several photos at the Greenwood Cemetery in Sidney, NE on the day that I also took some at the Peetz Cemetery in CO. They're only 15 miles apart.
Apparently, I put the Ault photos in the wrong cemetery. I'm sooo glad you caught the goof.
I will immediately delete the one I posted in the Greenwood Cemetery.
Thank you for pointing this out.

RE: Winters
Hi Diane,

I think I have this fixed. Sorry for the mix up. If this still is not right please let me know. I'm glad I was able to take the picture. I just want to make sure that I have right picture with the right person.

Erna & Lawrence Kmetty
I went to Resurrection Catholic Cemetery today. Per their office kiosk, Erna was interred on January 10, 1974 and Lawrence was interred on February 21, 1976.

I also submitted edits to add their plot locations.

Hope this helps.

Erna & Larry Kmetty
Hi, I was able to find a mention in the Chgo Tribune related to tragedy. I added that article to Erna's memorial. I looked in the Chgo Trib Jan 6th-11th and did not find an official death notice. It could have only been put in the local suburban paper due to the tragedy.

As far as Larry, I couldn't quickly find an actual death date on-line. So I only did a search by last name in Chgo Tribune index and nothing came up for 1976. The index is done by OCR, so the search results aren't always good.

What I can do is look up their interment dates at the cemetery next time I go. I usually go once a week or so. Let me know if that would help you.
