Bio Photo "Close to my heart you'll always be - Genealogy is the connection to you and me!"

Your tombstone stands among the rest, neglected and alone. The name and date are chiseled out on polished, marbled stone.

It reaches out to all who care, it is too late to mourn. You did not know that I exist, you died, and I was born. Yet each of us are cells of you, in flesh, in blood, in bone. Our blood contracts and beat a pulse, entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled, one hundred years ago, spreads out among the ones you left, who would have loved you so.

I wonder if you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew, that someday I would find this spot, and come to visit you. (Author Unknown)

BTW for those of you sending all the corrections regarding only one name in the first block of records for searching ease, even when the individual has 3 or 4 names, as in good Catholics who always have Marie or Joseph in their names (which is usually the first name) - be careful what you ask for - I'm working on the corrections, however if you search on Marie or Joseph now you get over 2,500 of my names alone. Good luck finding the individual you are looking for, especially if it's Marie and you don't know how many times she married. I find those of you insistent on this interesting - especially as Find A Grave refuses to fix my husband's relative who has no first name - his name is Spotted Tail and because he's famous his record is handled by management - they have Spotted for his first name and Tail for his last name. Not CORRECT, but what the heck, it fits in the box.

RE: Crookston NE Cemetery
Thanks for the quick response! My fence climbing days are over, especially way out there in the middle of nowhere! You did a great job on that cemetery but if I do get back there for an update I will see about your relative. Happy hunting!!

Crookston NE Cemetery
You photographed this cemetery in 2012 - very good job! Question is how did you get in? After driving many miles I found a locked gate and barbed wire. No one found in town (almost a ghost town). Do you happen to remember who had a key? You have been very VERY busy, wow, 17,000+ so you probably don't know - I'd never remember...but I have to ask.
Thanks Chuck

RE: Charles W. Green
I am working on another candidate for Nora, but it is a long shot because I still haven't been able to prove they were ever in Polk county, Nebraska.
I have poked around a little from time to time as I have had ideas. I think I have nearly exhausted the normal sources I am in the habit of using. It is really time to get out of my comfort zone and pursue other record collections, such as land, probate, BMD's (birth, marriage and death records) and newspapers. In the mean time I am working on Polk county, Nebraska, where it is said that C.W. Green died and where his uncle Thomas lived and died. There are 42 Greens buried in that county and I am using the process of elimination to see if any of them are related to either C.W. or Charles W. or Thomas. Only Thomas' wife Christianna and son Eden so far. I have completed research on about half of them, the two biggest Green families are completely unrelated on American soil, other than coming from England.
There is one infant who died in 1882 and is the only Green in a small cemetery about three miles from where Thomas is buried. When I get everyone else sorted out and accounted for, if this infant hasn't been connected to another Green in the county, then there still has to be a bit of a miracle that would connect the infant to Charles and Nora. IF CW/Charles W and Nora were in Polk county it would have been for only a short time between the 1880 census that has them in Mt. Zion, Macon, Illinois and the 1885 census that has them in Nemaha county, Nebraska. I am closely scrutinizing the 1900 census that gives the number of children for every mother. There is still an outside chance that I could stumble upon something that could completely break the CW/Charles W deal.
The time consuming part of this research is putting my notes back on either FamilySearch or Find-a-Grave. Since I am not related to these other Greens I won't keep my notes, as long as I've done the work I might as well put it somewhere it might do someone else some good.
In April I will be seeing my mother in Lincoln and will have time to stop in Polk county and look at several cemeteries for myself.
