|Bio and Links|
I'm somewhat new to Find A Grave and my experiences so far have been amazing! I've "met" some extremely caring and helpful people through this site. Thank you!!|
I'm researching my roots and am happy to collaborate if our trees match. I love meeting new cousins!
My WAIT branch goes back to John Waits (1730-1791) and Ann Deloss (1724-1790).
Contrary to popular web belief, John's Mother neither Ann Graves nor Sarah Blake. That was a completely different Richard Waits. This has been disproven through DNA testing, so please think twice if someone's family tree tells you otherwise.
If, on the other hand, someone has proof of who John's parents actually were, I'd love to hear it!

you have a picture of the grave of Otis B Crandell and his wife Laura at Wyuka Cemetery, Lincoln, NE. There is a second picture with a note stating that there was a small stone with the name Maud on it. Ina Maud Dill was Otis B. Crandell's second wife.

I'm not sure Kathy (about the relationship). I'll do some more digging the next time I'm at the Seward library to see what I can some up with, ok?

Hi Kathy, I just transferred the Hartsocks to you.
It's always nice to see a family reunited even when it's in death.

Hello cousin, I'm also a descendant of Thomas L. Rogers and his first wife Mary "Polly" Bivens through their youngest child Andrew Jackson. Mary was born 01 September 1805 possibly Rowan County, North Carolina and moved to Clark County, Kentucky about 1808 with her family.
|Lisa Cherrington||RE: Jackson W Cheney|
I was wondering how much you might know about Lincoln. I had an Aunt who lived in a "sanatorium" there for several years. Her name was Fredericka Cheney. She was the daughter of Jackson Cheney. It does show her on a couple of census', but I do not know where she might be buried, or why she might have been in the sanatorium. I cannot find her brother, who was my Great Grandfather, Charles Julius Cheney either. He and my Great Grandmother did not stay together too long. I thought you might be able to either lead me in the direction of where to search, or may just know something. I have a gazillions of ancestors in Nebraska and Kansas. Alot of them are Highland's. Other surnames are: Beaver, McNemee, Schmidt, Smith, Cheney, Lentz. Just to name a few!! Thank you for your help.
|Lisa Cherrington||RE: Jackson W Cheney|
Wow, are you on top of things!!! Thank you so very much for taking this picture. I probably would not have ever found him. It is wonderful because I want so badly to go to these states where my ancestors are buried, but cannot. I am hoping to be able to someday though. Tell me, do you live in this area? I would like to pick your brain about some areas in Nebraska. Let me know if that would be ok. Thank You!
|Paul Ohlendorf||John Luther Shoup|
I was looking at my memorials that I placed here to add new things and I was looking at my 2nd Great Granddad's, John Luther Shoup's site and to my surprise, you added a photo of his grave stone. The website for Blue Mound Cemetery comes with grave stone photos but I couldn't find him and now you put it on his memorial. Thank You very much Kathy, I really appreciate what you did.
|Wendy Gunderson||Simon Peter Ulch|
Thanks for the new photo for Simon. It's lovely!
Thank you for posting the picture of David Dowd's tombstone. He was my great grandfather's brother.

|Baxter B. Fite III||Private Charles A. Brock, Co. K, 86th Illinois|
Dear Kathy, I don't think I ever Thanked You publicly for photographing the grave of Private Charles A. Brock. I always knew that this was one grave that I would never see for myself. But, Thanks to YOU, I have liked long enough to see a photograph of it. I have just added quite a bit to the Find A Grave biography for Private Brock, but there are still many questions that I would love to find the answers to. One of these is if Mrs. Brock is buried with or near her husband. If you ever go back to cemetery where Private Brock is buried, I would love to know if there are any other members of the Brock family buried with or near Charles. If you ever do go back and if you ever find any other members of the Brock, would it be possible for you to record what information is on their stones and send me the information? At some point, I am going to try and get a copy of Private Brock's obituary which I hope will answer other questions as well. Thanks for all you have done for Find A Grave and Thanks for all that you will do in the future. But, THANK YOU most for what you did for me and for those interested in seeing the Civil War veterans stories told and kept for future generations. THANK YOU!!! Baxter
