When you were going through the Sherman County Times obits, did you happen upon one for Charles Quartz? He died in Feb. 1953...

Burial Bertha M Luke Bible Donley Lawrence
BURIAL: Find A Grave Memorial# 140529485 = wrong one for this Bertha Luke

Look at this obituary or death notice that I found for Bertha!

OBITUARY Bertha Lawrence: Coshocton Tribune (Coshocton, OH), 1962, March 21, Page 11
Funeral services were held Monday in Columbus for Mrs. Bertha (Luke) Lawrence, 85.
Surviving are three daughters and a son, Mrs. Eugene Johnson, Columbus, with whom she made her home, Mrs. Harry McCormick, Route 1, Mrs. Chester Carroll and M.L. Bible, Coshocton; eight grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.

DEATH: "Ohio Death Index, 1908-1932, 1938-1944, and 1958-2007," database, FamilySearch ( : 8 December 2014), Bertha M Lawrence, 16 Mar 1962; from "Ohio, Deaths, 1908-1932, 1938-2007," database and images, Ancestry ( : 2010); citing vol. 16836, certificate number 19254, Ohio Historical Society, Columbus; Ohio Department of Health, State Vital Statistics Unit, Columbus.
At the time of death, Bertha was widowed and last resided in Columbus, Franklin co., Oh. lists the burial as being in that same Union Cemetery, however only the index will show for me rather than the actual site. The index does give a DOB as does her SSDI application also found in

They are buried, I believe, in Los Angeles but I will have to check that out when I return to the States this summer. I will see what I can come up with on that.

RE: Emanuel William Gruber
Thanks, that is helpful. I am quite new at the genealogy bit--just started basically this month after my mom died last month. I had started a tree on my dad's side after he died in 2001 with the bits and pieces of information I had found in old newspaper clippings he had but then I stopped until this year. I was trying to avoid paying to get on ancestry bu iot looks like I might do so.

Hi Kathy
I saw that you created the page for Emanuel William Gruber. On it you have only one child listed which is Lydia E. Gruber Fafeita. I know she is the sister of my grandfather Emanuel Vincent Gruber. What is your connection? and do you know for sure what the names of Emanuel William Gruber?

Hi Kathy

I have created a memorial for Edna in Custer Center Cemetery and links to Frank and her parents. Are you sure Edna is buried there? Hope I understood your instructions.

Kathy I submitted a date change to 1910, not 1916, I went up and took another pix, rubbing the date, as you can see it is a 0 not 6, with the rust spot it look like a 6.
Finding these two articles brought this to question.
ST. PAUL REPUBLICAN Thu, Jul 7, 1910 St. Paul Nebraska Page : 8
Mrs Frank Stenka was seriously sick last week appendicitis being the cause of the illness she was getting worse every day and it was necessary to operate Dr Pedersen with the assistance of a livery man brought the patent to the hospital Monday and Dr performed the operation, and now she is getting along fine.
ST. PAUL REPUBLICAN Thu, Nov 10, 1910 St. Paul Nebraska Page : 8
Mrs J R Stenka died at the Far well hospital Monday after a long illness during during which she battled bravely for life but It was no use The funeral was held Wednesday She leaves a husband and three small children The sincere sympatby of all Is extended to the bereaved family.
Upon finding these articles, question is raised on the dates on the stone. If she died Monday, and the funeral was wednesday, and printed on thursday the 10th, death had to have been 7th, funeral 9th. Verified with picture, it is 1910, not 1916.

RE: Dembowski
Thank you for the offer! I assume you are familiar with the Greater Omaha Genealogical Society

Their obituaries are very brief: name, age, perhaps cemetery, perhaps wife/husband, newspaper and publication data. But they also have links to marriages, divorces, etc. and not just for Douglas County.

It, too, is a free site.

Added by MrsB on Dec 16, 2016 4:12 PM

RE: Dembowski

This one is set to D; but there are other items too: burial plots/marriage licenses, etc. The obits have SOME connection to Washington County, Nebraska, but that said, it may simply be that somebody cleaned out her grandma's house and took a lot of things to Washington County Recycling (where I also volunteer, and where the paper sorters save back funeral leaflets and old newspapers), or that a person attended Dana College, or that somebody's aunt lived in Washington get the idea. We have recently been going through old microfilm/microfiche, and picking off the obits. It isn't perfect, by a long shot, but it is still pretty good, and we are adding to it all the time.

Currently I am proofing the D's, and that is why I sent one to you.

It is free and you don't have to be a member (and though donations are welcome we don't nag).

Added by MrsB on Dec 16, 2016 3:46 PM

You're welcome!
We actually have over 17,000 obits on our free site, and are adding to it.

What proof do you have that she was born in Ord, NE and died in Kansas? I don't accept Ancestry trees or personal family histories as proof. At least two of her siblings were born in Arcadia. If you have an obit for her I would gladly add it. thanks!!!
