I've "rescued" an old photograph of Mrs. N. C. THOMPSON which was taken at
the Grimble Studio in Nebraska City, Nebraska. The photograph appears to
have been taken in the very early 1900's with Mrs. THOMPSON appearing to be
in her 50's or 60's at the time. I am hoping to locate someone from the
family so that this wonderful old photograph can be returned to their care.
If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please

Dear Mr. Mason,
i am searching for my ancestors, who immigrated to Nebraska, Otoe/Cass in
1887. My greatgrandfathers brother Jakob Ehlers, born in 1868 and his wife
Doris, born in 1875 had 4 children. (Herbert/Clara/Otto/Paulina). Herbert died
in 1972 in Otoe. But where are the other members of my family? I don`t know,
if Herbert was married, if there are children and so on..
It is a dream, to find members of my family more than 100 years later!
Please could you help me?
Greetings from Germany, Schleswig Holstein

**************New year...new news. Be the first to know what is making
Need to know if there was a divorce decree
granted for Mrs. Jerusha Fouts from Mr. Peter
Fouts between 1860 and 1864 as there is a
marriage record for Mrs. Jerusha Fouts to a
Wm S. Jones/Johns 10 Oct 1864.
There was also a marriage record for one
daughter that this Wm S Jones/Johns signed for her to be married to
That daughter was Sarah Jane Fouts, thing is
daddy (Peter Fouts) still living, did not die until
1902 Otoe Co NE.
This is a major puzzle.
