Bio and Links
Bio Photo NE native but MS delta resident since 1970s. Vacation home in northeast AR. Family names of interest NE/IN/IA: Busse, Watson, Washburn, VanBenschoten, Robinson, McLaughlin, Miller.

Usually only transfer direct-line relatives per FaG guidelines. Those collecting last names or entire families please use Virtual Cem feature.

Since I believe FaG is created to recognize those who came before us please feel free to copy any picture I have taken for personal use. However, some of my memorials have pictures belonging to others. Please check labeling to determine what you copy was actually posted by me. Otherwise you will want to get permission from the actual photographer.

Please submit Edits using link and NOT by emailing. At least 3 times weekly I check for Edits on site. Emails, MUCH less so.

What a wonderful website & what a wonderful way to honor the lives of our ancestors. And thanks and appreciation to those who send Edits to flesh out memorials - always looking for ways to make them better and more complete.

RE: 151329214 Victoria Schuman
Hi Sandi,
There is no tombstone for Victoria in the cemetery. There were tombstone surveys done in 1932, 1950, 2003 & 2013. And she is not on any of those lists.
Gail went back thru the original hand-written Sexton's list of burials, but no record of Victoria. The burial plot info does not match anything in our cemetery.
We can not say that she is definitely not in our cemetery, but we have no evidence of her burial here, & believe it is very unlikely.

RE: 151329214 Victoria Schuman
Hi Sandi,

I have photocopies of the cemetery records, which are not totally complete. The originals remain at the church. I had another member of our committee go to the original records to check. She could find no one with the last name Schuman (or Shuman) listed in either of our 2 cemeteries.

We are searching to see if we can find a notation that anyone was re-interred from that cemetery in Chicago. (thinking the notation on Victoria in the Chicago cemetery records might be for a different person & put next to Victoria's name in error).

I will get back to you again soon, after we do a more thorough search.

RE: German Farming Communities
Hello Sandi Thank you so much for taking the time to contact me with this new source of information.My first impression was that I would find little about my ancestors due to the fact that back then they (my Family) were all Catholic and stayed with their own as did the Lutherans.My wife is a Lutheran and comes from Hastings and this might be more helpful with her family. I will spend some time researching the site you pointed out.
My Bender family came from Germany in the 1850s and first settled in Marshall Illinois and then in the late 1860s came to Cornlea Nebraska and Humphrey Nebraska area to Homestead.

My mothers family (Ausdemore)also Catholic settled in Crofton Nebraska after first living in Ohio for several years.
Research on our ancestors is a never ending but very rewarding task. Thanks again for your input and I am curious how to ended up at my Find a grave profile. It could be you saw where I have researched thousands of Nebraskan's who died in World War II. Have a Wonderful day!. Loren Bender

RE: Frances P. Stover 153273188

That will work. Although for 116887335I am just going to ignore it. I don't think my Permelia Frances "Fannie" Hoy Stover who died in 1939 would have first been buried in Old Whiting Cemetery.

Thank You Again,

RE: Beulah Stover
Hi Sandi,

I would be happy to take over this memorial. Beulah is my grandfather's younger sister.

There were two other memorials that are also related which I would like to have:

Baby Stover 153273240 (stillborn of Wm & Josephine Poland Stover)
Fred Stover 153230879

Thank You,
