Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in eastern Nebraska and have researched my family genealogy, as well as my husband's side of the family for a few years now.

Many of my summers off working at a middle school are spent traveling to where our ancestors are from, hoping to find something more about them.

The virtual cemeteries are of my dad's ASPEGREN ancestors, my mom's WARD ancestors, my husband's father's ROTH ancestors, and my husband's mother's PEEBLER ancestors.

I am also researching the family farm where I grew up, originally homesteaded by the David H. Goodrich family in 1873. My Great Grandparents George & Suzanne Ward bought the family farm in 1921 - north of Geneva, Nebraska.

I think this site has been great for having a place to share what I have found, for the present and future generations to come.

John Wesley Francis - Thank you!!
Thank you so much for taking the time to track down and get a picture of this grave for me. I find it interesting that it's unmarked. Time for me to do some more digging!

RE: Frances Smith-unmarked grave
Yes. If Mary D. 'Mattie" Rounds married, then it will be impossible to locate her with an unknown married name...I've been trying to find her for a couple of years now. She is the daughter of Frances Rounds-Smith you located for me at Fairview. I discovered that Orrin 'O.C. Smith is buried in Oak View Cemetery! All this new information thanks to your help. I am checking the chroniclingamerica site for any articles on Mary/Mattie, maybe there's something there. Once again, and forever more, THANK YOU!!!

RE: Frances Smith-unmarked grave

You are too much! Thank you! It's him! That means there is an empty plot in Lot 15 because Orrin C. Smith isn't next to Frances. Could there possibly be a burial record for Mary D. 'Mattie' Rounds? She is Frances Rounds-Smith's 'missing' daughter.
My last known record of her is the Nebraska state census from Plattsmouth, Cass, NE in 1885. She is 14 years old. She passes away before the 1900 Federal Census. I know this because Frances gave birth to 8 children and by 1900 only 6 are alive. I know the surviving 6 live to old age with families of their own. Only Mary 'disappears' after the 1885 state census. She could have married, but, just maybe she is buried in the one remaining plot! You have helped me so much, I can't thank you enough!

RE: Frances Smith-unmarked grave
My *thank you(s)* are beginning to sound trite, but they are heartfelt! THANK YOU! The list of names really helps me! Orrin C. Smith died in 1907. I tried a site that had some obits, but couldn't find one for Orrin C. 'O.C.' Smith. I am thinking of ordering a double marker and listing both Frances Rounds-Smith and Orrin Smith together. I really can't imagine he would be interred anywhere else. Again, you are so sweet to help me like this. I wish I could express myself better to let you know how much you have helped me and how much I appreciate your help...

RE: Frances Smith-unmarked grave
Thank you AGAIN!
I believe that Orrin purchased 8 plots in 1895? I purchased a marker for Lydia Pearl Rounds (his stepdaughter) and will soon purchase a marker for Frances Isola Rounds-Smith. I am also aware of the infant Ernest next to Frances (by the way, I forgot to thank you for the flowers marking Frances' gravesite!),is it at all possible to get a list of the other names in lot 15? I know that Orrin must be there. So, I know of 4 family members and would love to discover who the other 4 family members are. Is there an e-mail address I can write to and a person I can make the inquiry to? I appreciate all the help!

Frances Smith-unmarked grave

I want to thank you so much for locating and photographing my relative's gravesite. Genealogical research is often fun and rewarding, but many times is also frustrating! It is logical that Frances be buried next to her infant son and I am hoping her husband is nearby as well. I now have renewed energy for more research thanks to you! I am forever grateful!

Thank-you for the picture of the gravesite, the flower is a nice touch for marking an unmarked gravesite.
