I've "rescued" an old photograph of Morton GREELEY which was taken at the
Purdy Photo Co. Studio in Atkinson or Stuart, NE. The photograph appears to
have been taken in the early 1900's with Morton appearing to be in his 30's
at the time. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following
information regarding Morton and his family:
Morton Youmans GREELEY was b. 14 Jun 1878 in Mukwonago, WI to parents Peter
Patrick GREELEY (b. 1841 in Muskego, WI-1934) and Ellen Marie YOUMANS (b.
1843 in Java, NY-1932). Morton was one of 7 children born to this couple
including, Mabel L.; Warren Hamilton; Emma: Morton; Bertha Ellen; Howard
Peter; and Edna GREELEY, all born in Mukwonago, WI or Nebraska between 1872
and 1884. Morton had two sisters Mable L. GREELEY (1872-1881) and Edna
GREELEY (1884-1884) that are buried in the same cemetery with him. Morton
married Kittie C. PRICE (1877-1905) in 1902 in Holt Co. NE. His second
marriage was to Lillian DAHMS (b. 12 Mar 1890 in Moline, IL-d Apr 1979 in
Springfield, MO) with whom he had to children, Helen and Warren GREELEY,
twins born in 1916 in NE.
In 1918 Morton's draft documents indicate that he was living in Ocheltree,
KS and that his birthdate was 12 Jun 1878, occupation Farmer, and his wife
Lillian GREELEY. Morton died 28 Jul 1919 in Ashland, NE and is buried in
the Woodlawn Cemetery in Atkinson, NE.
Census records provide the following details:

Peter GREELEY, age 58, born Sept 1842, married 31 years, born WI, a Farmer
Emma GREELEY, dau, age 24, born Jan 1876, born WI

+ 1 Servant
1910 census of Saratoga, NE:

I am hoping to locate someone from Morton's 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 contact me.
