Bio and Links
Bio Photo In retirement I have been doing the mowing at the Henderson, NE Mennonite Brethren Cemetery and have done some work on updating and correcting the cemetery records. The west half of the cemetery was officially deeded to the church in 1894 but there are burials that predate that. However, early cemetery records were lost in the 1930's so there are burials that are not recorded on the current list. If anyone has a record of earlier burials please send me a message. You can find an alpha listing and a spreadsheet with a little more information on the Henderson MB church website.

Currently, I am working on compiling a complete list of all World War I veterans who are buried in Hamilton County, Nebraska. I have a virtual cemetery of what I have so far. Any suggestions are welcome.

Thank you so much for all your extra work shooting the headstones of the children of the McKinney family. Until you find a plot like this you don't even know that there are more family members.

RE: Hartquest at Richland
Yes, John, the Hartquests had two sons who died in infancy in Illinois: one counted only in the household on 1855 IL State Census; the other in 1865. Neither appears five years later on the federal enumeration.

Their loss must have made an impression. Both parents' obits say they had seven sons although only five are ever named. For there to be be a centograph in Nebraska makes sense.

It's been at least 20 years since I was in Richland Cemetery, but I can't remember seeing an infants' marker [and my old negatives are AWOL].

Good catch!

Thank you also for catching my stupid error of extending Antoinette's days on this planet by another 100 years.

Thanks for Everything

Thank you for braving the snow and cold to expertly photograph the Hartquest stones in Aurora Cemetery and, of course, for an extra, unexpected surprise: the marker and memorial of Amber's mother, Elizabeth.

Happy New Year!
