Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a grandmother of three and a mother of three. My job is with a volunteer agency that provides assistance to elderly and folks who can no longer drive here in our area. Northern Arizona's high desert is where I call home, about 120 miles north and a little west of Phoenix. I love doing our family genealogy and helping others do theirs. If I can help someone in my area, I'm happy to do so - it's time for me to pay it forward. Barbara

RE: Mary Beattie Obituary # 114433335
You are so very welcome and glad I could help you out. If you have other relatives in the Belleville area you might like this free website; it can be slow but it's worth the time:

I am going thru Rose Mound Cemetery and trying to get as many obits on the memorials as possible.

RE: James Beattie, #129753800
You would probably have to go through the Nebraska State Historical Society in Lincoln and ask them about what newspapers were in Hardy during that time frame. Hardy is in my county, but we don't have any of their newspapers available to us. Nebraska started birth and death records in 1905, but not all of them were registered. Our courthouse doesn't have birth or death records either. I am able to bring home the bound newspapers from Nelson and have found 4 obits for this cemetery...not good odds. The Superior Express, Superior, NE, which is 7 miles west of Hardy might have an obit. Sorry I can't give you any good news. Happy Hunting!!!

RE: James Beattie, #129753800
Mary is buried on the south side of the stone and James is buried on the north side of the stone. Almost all of the stones face west, but a couple. I have already sent edits to Roy to add the dates and other info I have. If you would like me to transfer James' memorial to you please go thru the edit tab on his memorial and just say "please transfer" with your ID #. No one should be forgotten!!! As I'm typing this Roy has already done Mary's info.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 17266328
Considering the burial date, I think you are absolutely correct! Three days from death to burial is about right in 1900, especially in winter. And since her father is there, it makes sense. Please send the obit, using the edit tab on the memorial (select 'other') and I will add it, along with any other info that you have. It is really nice to get her identified.

Hi Barbara,
I wish I could link them all, but I am not the one who created the burial page. That person listed at the bottom of each page can make these changes.

RE: Louise Brumley
FYI: there is a Wilda Brumley buried next to Louise. Perhaps related?
I also uploaded a picture of Wilda's headstone.

Hello Barbara
The info came from a Genealogy book, as for the location of where this cemetery is located please contact the lady that took the photo I'm sure she would be able to tell you the exact location within the county.

RE: Malone's Summit Ridge
I have posted them for you. Barbara's death date on her stone differs from your listing.
Thank you, have a great week.
