I am trying to get information on my husband's grandfather - Charles Roseland Parsons, Born in March,1875 in York, York County, Nebraska. He lived in Trenton, Nebraska from around 1905 to about 1907 - His mother's name was Jennie A. Parsons, his father's name was Roseland Parsons. He was married to Ida C. Kittleson in Colorado in Montrose, Colorado - against her parent's wishes and then they apparently fled to Trenton. They had one child who died in infancy. Charles disappeared around 1907 and Ida moved back to Montrose, CO and gave birth to Orville A. Parsons, my husband's father. We have a lead that he may have come back to Colorado, specifically Sedgwick County around 1907.  If you have any information concerning him, or any history it would be very helpful for our family history.

I got your e-mail address by visiting the COGENWEB site for Sedgwick County Colorado.  I would like to knew how to get more information about the Gone, But not forgotten: Hillside Cemetery Book that was recommended on this web site.  I looked under the alphabet that was listed and could not found any of my relatives that should be buried in one of the cemeteries.  My great grandfather was killed in Sedgwick County on December 26, 1912 his names was Lewis Bradshaw Tate.  His spouse died on Sedgwick on December 21, 1936.  They had a total of 11 children and a lot of tem died during some type of epidemic in 1989 June or July timeframe.  I can found nothing about this but have written to the society that was on the site.  Also my records state that the children were born and or died in Nolan and Weld Colorado.  I can found nothing on these areas.  I'm assuming these towns have had name changes.  I'm stationed in the military! overseas or I would go to Colorado to do some research.  Any suggestions or help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

I am trying to find information on my GG Grandparents Isaac Nelson (Isak Nilsson) and his wife Christina (Lina Stina Johnsdotter). Isaac was born in Hreda Parish, Smaland, Sweden on 3/12/1817. Christina was born in Bckseda Parish, Smaland, Sweden on 5/6/1813. I found them listed on an 1880 census for Cumming Twp, Cumming County, NE. I have not been able to find a trace of them since that point. Their son, Frank Otto Nelson moved his family to Julesburg, CO from Oakland, NE in 1888. After difficult years farming near Julesburg, Frank moved his family to Wausa, NE in 1895. We are checking to see if Isaac and Christina may have moved with Frank and his family to Julesburg and possibly died there before the move to Wausa, NE. I do not have a date for the death of either Isaac or Christina. If anyone has any clues on this family, we'd appreciate hearing about them.  , AR

I'm researching Levi MUNCY (or MUNCEY, MUNSEY, MUNCIE), born about 1810 in Pennsylvania. He married Mary MILLER in Jefferson Co. OH in 1834. Their children included David (born abt 1836), Ada J. (abt 1837), Moses (abt 1840), Margaret N. (abt 1845), Mary E. (abt 1847), and Levi Jr. (1849). All of the children were born in Ohio, with at least Levi Jr. being born in Belmont Co. OH. Levi Sr. died about 1853 and his wife Mary died about 1860. Levi Jr. married Georgianna Pontzious (pron. "Poncy") in 1874 in Louisa County. Their children were Nora Lee Muncy (1875) and William H. Muncy (abt 1877). Levi Jr. and Georgianna lived in Louisa Co. and Mills Co. IA, and ended up in Sedgwick Co., Colorado. By the time Levi Jr. died in 1912, he was spelling his name "Muncie." Any help would be appreciated.

There was an old Levi MUNCY ("Muncey") who died in Belmont Co. OH in 1850. He may have been the father or an uncle of Levi (born abt 1810), but there is no Levi mentioned as a child in his will. This old Levi's will does mention his children Francis Asbury MUNCY (insane), Deborah COMBS (COOMBS), Isabell MOORE, and Nancy WALLAS (WALLACE?). I think my Levi, who married Mary Miller, may have been a brother of James MUNSEY (born abt 1822 in PA), who married a Margaret and was living next-door in Jefferson Co. OH in 1850. I'm confident my Levi was part of the big Francis Muncy family of Washington Co. PA-Brooke Co. VA/WV-and Ohio Co. VA/WV (all close to Belmont Co.), but I don't know how he fits in!
