Since he was my great grandfather, would you be willing to transfer his memorial to me? I think I am finally getting to the place of breaking the family code. How is the weather "up North" in your territory?

Hi, I'm contacting you because your name was listed in Dorothy's Memorial page as the person in charge of the webpage. I had requested a photo of Dorothy's Grave but the person fulfilling the photo request said that Dorothy's name was not listed in the cemetery's registry. I was wondering if you had first hand knowledge that she is in fact there or if you know of another cemetery she might be buried in. Marcy Edwards

Will do! Too bad the stone can't be read easily, it is gorgeous marble. She must have been loved.

RE: Vopat pic
Hi Kathy. I could not actually read anything, so I had to trace it out. I entered it in as "an edit" to the transcription on the website. Maybe not approved yet? Her name was Josephine. I am at work and will email you the whole text when I get home. There is a 11 yr boy by last name MURRAY also on that stone.

RE: Thanks
Thanks! You may be like my friend who has even offered to find me Omaha area obit from 1985 or earlier--he has access to sites I don't. If you like obits, please take a look at (our Nebraska Washington County Genealogical Society--we have over 17,000 online, it is free, and the person's connection to Washington County, NE might be as tenuous as going to Dana College years ago or having an aunt who lived in Washington County.

Thanks for the parent edits--and a request
I am one who appreciates obits, and thank you for the link. If it ever happens that you find an obit for one of the memorials I manage, I would truly like it if you would send the obit as an attachment to me via I would transcribe it and weave it into bio, while still giving credit to source.

If it is added as a picture, I probably not even know it was added, and so wouldn't do anything more with it (it is also a little harder to read in a picture).

Thank you again--and in advance!

RE: Petersen parents
Arthur Peter Peterson's parents were Mary Nichols Peterson Drahos (1858 to 1941) and Hans Peterson(about 1857 to Sept 1888). These 2 were married 27 Sept 1884 in Omaha, NE, (Nebraska Marriage Records) so my best guess is that the Hans Peterson in the Laurel Cemetery is the right one. My interest in this family is that Mary Nichols Peterson married John Drahos on Sept 17, 1891. John Drahos first wife died in 1889, and we found the marriage records in the Iowa Marriage Records. John & Mary Drahos are listed in the 1900 census with 2 children, Arthur and Mary(Mamie) Peterson, listed as step-children. They also appear in the Iowa 1905 census in Belle Plaine, Iowa. After that they seemed to disappear. Then recently I found Arthur, Mary, & Mamie in the Ord Cemetery using Find-a-Grave. They left Belle Plaine about 1906 and returned to Nebraska when Mamie married Andres M L Petersen. No mention of them is made in John Drahos obit (1913, Belle Plaine, IA). Mary Nichols Peterson Drahos' parents, Frank Nichols (1826-1909) and Frances Podalsky Nichols (1833-1917) are buried in Belle Plaine, IA.

Thank you for linking her to her parents. No one should have to be alone, even on Find A Grave.

Are you related in any way to this family line

Grandson of Fountain Elliott Keown says Fountain did not go to visit his brothers but moved there for four years and Audrey is one of the children born while living there.

RE: 11061708 John Samuel Nelson
It all makes sense. I may order death cert. If I do I will let you know what I find.

On find a grave you have listed that son Robert married June C Colerick. Are you certain of this information? The reason Find A Grave 151899567 is a Robert that married June Colerick. However, I found on Family Search that based on a 1940 census someone has him attached to another Nelson family.
Robert that show you as a son of John Nelson is a cousin to my aunt. That is why I am working on this family,
Thanks for any input you can give me.

Kathy, thanks for the reply and input. Hope you continue to find all those you search for. True so many women today use both name with a hyphen between. BJ

Frances Mutschler
Kathy, thanks for the links for Frances. Figured that they were married, but we cannot assume anything on this site. Its interesting that so often a women's maiden name became her middle initial on markers. Leaving it up to family or researchers to figure it out. So which are you? BJ

Memorials for my grandparents.

Thank you so much for the work you’ve done on Find A Grave! I would love for you to transfer two of your memorials to my name, as they are my grandparents. Also, the burial information is incorrect for my grandfather, and once the memorial is under my account, I can make the necessary changes. He is actually buried in Kearney, Nebraska, not Loup City.
The Find A Grave Memorial # for my grandfather is 84410686
The Find A Grave Memorial # for my grandmother is 84410720

Thank you so much for your help!
