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.

Additions to this cemetery
I am using a book Lest We Forget It lists many Russian Obits and is an index. I am going through it and many entries are for this cemetery. Please check your edit file and process these as you have time. Thanks to you and everyone else who continues to improve the info available on this findagrave site. Mary Old

RE: Paben
Hello, John!

Thank you so much for taking the photos of the Paben family headstones! I am so glad that you added the other children there. I was looking for them, too! Ben and Minnie Paben were my husband's, Daryl Madsen, 2nd great grandparents. We live in C.C., Tx. and do not get to make up there very often. I am trying to connect what I have of his family together so family and future generations will be able to find them! Thank you again for your help. Keep warm and many blessings, Michele Madsen

RE: gerhard and agatha toews
You are probably about the same level descendant from Gerhard and Agatha Toews as my husband. He is descended through Abraham Toews, Maria Toews, Kathryn Brown. I only know that family records indicate that she was put in custody of governmental officials for burial since they were being required to leave the area immediately upon arrival in New York. I know it wasn't Ellis Island per se but it would have been the same port, approximately. Her burial should have been in a near cemetery. I do have an old booklet that one of Rick's Great Aunts compiled and annotated. It has some photos but only in the format of old technology - they are pretty rough. I have posted some on, some on Family Family tree. Most are just on my computer. If you'll contact me through my email I'll try to accomodate your request. Lots of fun, heh?

Thank you John for taking the photo of Roy, Emma and Ray's gravestones. I know how time consuming this can be. I am playing catch up on my emails as I lost some and found them later.
Beautiful memories etched upon our hearts and souls will never be forgotten.

M Berry and Minnie Berry
Thank you very much for your efforts to locate the grave site and headstone for Minnie Berry. I was hoping the woman buried here was my great grandfather's daughter, Minnie Marks Berry. Since your cemetery research shows that the woman buried at this site died in 1886 and since my research shows that "my" Minnie was born in 1873 and married Aaron Berry in 1898, I don't think this is the Minnie I'm seeking. I'd be glad to remove the M Berry memorial, as you suggested, but I am not it's creator so I cannot. Again, thanks for your diligence and helpful spirit. You are appreciated. ~JT~
