WILSEY, BURKEY, January 2010
have been researching the WILSEY family of Milford, Nebraska. One member of that family was Jerman
Lester WILSEY, who was my mother's brother. I do not see the name listed in the name
index for the county, but I know he and his family were in Republican City in
1900 (see the 1900 Census for Harlan County and Jerman Lester WILSEY in
Republican City, Mullaly Township).
His wife was May Burkey and without positive proof I am wondering if she
was related to the owner of Burkey's Hardware that is listed in the name
index. There were also Burkeys in Milford.

ACHEN, October 2009
I am researching the family of Ernest C Achen. I find them in Harlen County
in 1880. Ernest and some of his
family are buried in the Alma
Cemetery. He died in 1907. George and Elizabeth had three Children,
George W., Charles W. and Ralph.
The children were born in Illinois in Lake County. I am wanting to
correspond with descendants of this family. Ernest was a brother to my gggrandfather
John Achen and they immigrated to America
through Hamburg via Quebec arriving in Milwaulkee.

HUNT, May 2007
Aurin B. HUNT and Lillie W. HUNT were
husband and wife (my great grandparents). I have been searching for
obituaries for both. The Alma
paper announced his death and promised an obituary in the next week's paper but
none ever materialized. Since he died in Red Cloud I was hoping that
perhaps there was an obituary there but no luck so far. C. Blaine was
their son. I have his obituary. I'm not sure why there was never a
marker for him....he died in Colorado
but obviously was buried with his parents.

GRAND LAKE, COLORADO & ALMA, NEBRASKA,
I'm working on the link between Grand Lake, Colorado and Alma, NE.
While doing some research at the
Grand County CO courthouse I found where a John Griffin from Alma NE sold his
cabin on Grand Lake
to T. L. Porter also from Alma,
NE in October of 1908. My
grandparents, also from Alma purchased that same
fall a lot on Grand
Lake. Both summer
cottages are still in their respective families. To my knowledge Porter was an
atty and business man in Alma.
My grandfather was a dentist but I have no information on the John Griffin
family. I do have a photo of Mr. and Mrs. Griffin if that would help in any
