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.

RE: Amanda Laflin

I miss spoke about Amanda's marriage's she married in 1851 she was first born to George Washington Heflin and Bathsheba Wright in Rush co Ind Bathsheba was 15 years old and had Amanda at 15 years and 11 months. After that the whole family moved to Rio in ILL the Last born was Edwin and he is our link and he did serve in the Civil War.The other marriage's were her sister Josephine. When it comes to a military marker I would have thought that there son who was a ( I think ) in ILL. Senate would have taken care of that, but I will look.

RE: Amanda Laflin
Me again I saw that Amanda's 2 previous marriages to Tabor & Taylor were in the Civil War, but she married them after the war, but I did not see that her last husband had. I guess it needs to be looked at again.

Her brother married Mary Elizabeth Hubbartt Cellan. My Great great grandfather was Rev. Charles Hubbartt. She was a distant relative perhaps.

RE: Amanda Laflin photo request
Hi again

Would you know if the cemetery would allow a family member to place a marker on Amanda and husband burial site. I have written them and they have not responded. I asked if they would do they have a connection to some makers ( which they should ) and type, size, cost.
I know that you did not right there, but maybe if your in town you could ask, If you don't want to fine.

Thanks again

RE: Amanda Laflin photo request

Thank you for taken time to do this, the other
person that requested was also a Heflin we have been working together, but we didn't know the other
had both asked. So thanks for doing this 2 times.
To explain a little bit about she was the daughter of George Washington Heflin who was born in KY and moved to Indiana with his family and met his wife Bathsheba and had Amanda Heflin there and then the whole family moved to Knox co. ILL. where the next 6 kids were born. The last child was Edwin and he was the one that kept the family going.
I always like to fill in a little info about the people like you that do this.

Thank again

Could you take a look at this and tell me what you think.

I wonder why there would be two burial plots. Do you know where he was buried?
