Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in eastern Nebraska and have researched my family genealogy, as well as my husband's side of the family for a few years now.

Many of my summers off working at a middle school are spent traveling to where our ancestors are from, hoping to find something more about them.

The virtual cemeteries are of my dad's ASPEGREN ancestors, my mom's WARD ancestors, my husband's father's ROTH ancestors, and my husband's mother's PEEBLER ancestors.

I am also researching the family farm where I grew up, originally homesteaded by the David H. Goodrich family in 1873. My Great Grandparents George & Suzanne Ward bought the family farm in 1921 - north of Geneva, Nebraska.

I think this site has been great for having a place to share what I have found, for the present and future generations to come.

RE: Phillip Nathan Bennett
That's kind of funny. I was thinking about asking you, if you had done a DNA test, too. Anyway, no, I haven't but my Dad did through Ancestry. My tree is private, but if you are on Ancestry it would be SB administered by rlm442. I can send you an invite, if you are interested.

RE: Phillip Nathan Bennett
From the various census reports I have for Levi, his birth is abt 1811/1812 in KY. But is you calculate his birth date from the information on his headstone (death 17 Apr 1885 at age 74 yrs 2 months and 20 days), you get a date of 28 Jan 1811. ---- But you are right there could be an error. Possibly he was only 73 yrs old.
It just makes me a little leery. Do I have the correct family connection or not??? --- The typical genealogical dilemmas. hahahaha

RE: Phillip Nathan Bennett
I'm not really sure. --- Most researchers have Levi's mother as Abigail Spivey. But the records show that She married David 30 Sep 1811 and Levi was born 28 Jan 1811, which is why I question it.

RE: Phillip Nathan Bennett
I believe his mother, 'Juda' (Brown) Bennett is the sister of Levi Brown (my GGGG-grandfather).

RE: Phillip Nathan Bennett
That will be wonderful.
I deleted the record of his burial that I had posted, before I came across yours. I had his name spelled with 2 "L"s, which is why I didn't find yours initially. :)

Thank you so much for finding and photographing this grave. This young lady died in a car accident and her 9 month old daughter and husband survived. We want to remember her in our family lineage.
Thank you.
