Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for about 35 years, originally to help my brother out. He passed away fifteen years ago. I am retired and am carrying on his legacy. It is amazing how much time I spend on the computer every day doing research.

I grew up in Kansas and moved to California around 1958 and have lived here ever since. My ancestry research started out mostly Swedish with some Norwegian. Now with about 11,600 people in my family tree, it includes many nationalities including Irish and English and Canadian. I am mostly focused on Kansas (around Vilas and Chanute, where my family grew up), and also Missouri, Nebraska, California, Oregon, Washington and Arizona.

My Swedish ancestors came over mostly around the 1870's from the mainland and the Island of Gotland and then settled in Kansas. My records go back to the 1500's.

My goal in Find-A-Grave is to provide as much information on a memorial as possible for the benefit of others. I use daily for research and have accumulated a lot of solid info.

Thank you for your note and kudos. I like to show where there interment is so others will have an easier time locating it. A picture is worth a thousand words!

No relation, just perusing old newspapers researching my family tree and when I find any others, I just share.

RE: Elizabeth Henning Rasmussen #51681837
You can have them put a note on it about the Rasmussen name. I may have sent it actually. Let's see if it posts. I think the manager is Find a grave as it may be a Fallen graver who created it.
Happy Searching! Rosalie

You are very welcome. Glad to have helped. I do enjoy walking cemeteries wondering what stories are behind each name.

George was the son of Henry Smith and Mary Quigley.
According to letter written by George Smith's son, Jack, the family moved to Omaha, Nebraska in 1872 or 1873. Henry died about 1885 or 1886.
At father's death, he went to live with his mother's family in Philadelphia. Mary had a sister named Sarah, who was called Sadie. She had 15 children. His brother, Charles Elijah, was raised by Laton and Rachel Francina Curtis, and he took their last name.

Naomi Kolb (Lincoln Cemetery)
Thanks for your note. It appears that the other memorial (with unknown burial location) was added in 2010 by a niece of Naomi's. My thought is that you could add the photo you took to the other memorial and notify the person that Naomi is buried at Lincoln Cemetery. Your choice, of course. (I am not related to Naomi, just happened to be looking up some items in the 1967 microfiche at the library).
