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: Thank you for photo of gravesite
Huh. So just the son got buried in that area. Thanks so much for checking that. Someday I hope to drive from here (Winona, MN) to Omaha and Lincoln to check out more of my father's life.

RE: Thank you for photo of gravesite
Robert Daniel Farmer (1934-1949)'s father is George William Farmer (1910-1988), my father, whose grave in Fort Rosecrans Cemetery, San Diego, CA is correctly listed by Find A Grave.

Robert Daniel Farmer's mother is Letitia E Mardin (1912-1999), George's first wife, who divorced George Farmer in 1940. (I was born in 1951 to George's third wife.) I believe that Letitia married Louis B Vogelgesang (1914-1982) sometime between the 1940 divorce and Robert's death in 1949. In Find A Grave, Letitia and Louis are shown sharing a vault or columbarium in a different cemetery, Lincoln Memorial Park, about eight miles away.

This is why I'm curious about the title "Son" on Robert's gravestone, and what names may be on the gravestones surrounding it. That title would usually be used in a family plot where the mother's or father's burial plot was adjacent to the son, yet both the mother and father's remains are in a different cemetery eight miles away.

CMR, thank you for responding my request by photographing the gravesite in Lincoln, NE of Robert D Farmer. In my photo request, I also asked for information about what graves, if any, were adjacent to Robert's grave. I'm interested in family members that might have been buried nearby. Do you have any information on that?

RE: Barb Aspegren
You are most welcome. When I read your profile page and saw you were researching the Aspegren family I figured you should have the memorial instead of me. My philosophy is "No one should be forgotten" and I didn't want this one to get lost. Happy Hunting!!!

Mattie Hall
This is Mattie's memorial, perhaps the dates are wrong?
