Bio and Links
Bio Photo In retirement I have been doing the mowing at the Henderson, NE Mennonite Brethren Cemetery and have done some work on updating the cemetery records. The west half of the cemetery was officially deeded to the church in 1894 but there are burials that predate that. However, early cemetery records were lost in the 1930's so there are burials that are not recorded on the current list. If anyone has a record of earlier burials please send me a message. You can find an alpha listing and a spreadsheet with a little more information on the Henderson MB church website.

Currently, I am working on compiling a complete list of all World War I veterans who are buried in Hamilton County, Nebraska. I have a virtual cemetery of what I have so far. Any suggestions are welcome.

I am also currently going through the postings of burials at the Aurora NE Cemetery to find missing names. If I inadvertently duplicated a memorial let me know and I will delete. Hope to follow up with photos soon so I can complete birth and death dates. If you have edits send them to me or if you are a relative I will transfer so you can do the updates to your relative's memorial.

You have permission to use any of the photos that I have posted to memorials.

RE: Willis Singer
Thanks, John.
I really appreciate the work that you have done. I have pretty well exhausted FindaGrave in seaching for members of the Singer clan.

I am exhausted right at this moment, so later for me. I just made a lot of connections in Kansas for the family. Lots of fun researching all of this, especially when one is not related except through friendship.

Right on, I am working on the Singer clan right now and it is big and confusing. I found the grandfather of my Clarence, David Singer in Elk Falls Cemetery in Elk County, Kansas. There are other Singers buried there that are related somehow. Whew.

RE: Willis Singer
There may not be a stone for Willis, that was the depression and dust bowl days and money was in short supply. A large part of the Singer clan along with in-laws and our-laws (lol) left Nebraska for California in 1908. They settled mostly around Stockton and Modesto. In 1912, Willis Orville took a large part of the clan and moved back to first Missouri and then Nebraska again around Aurora. Clarence, my good friend, moved back to California after his father Willis died (1937) in 1938. So, the result is the Singers were pretty well spread out, Modesto, Stockton, Ceres, and Nebraska.

John, It must have been startling to realize he'd been your dentist when you were a child...unexpected outcome when fulfilling a photo request! He is my distant cousin. Thank you so much for the personal recollection. Kathy

RE: Willis Singer
Thanks John,
I will deal with the edits later today, have to drive down to the big valley (Fresno County, CA) before the next storm hits later today. I really appreciate the work that you do.
