both born in Germany. Elizabeth was born abt 1834. They were in the 1910 Federal Census in
Twp. 32, Sheridan County, NE, living with their son, William FORSTER. I believe the
following to be their children: John G. FORSTER, Carl E. FORSTER, Edward FORSTER,

- Researching John D. STAUFFER, his wife Mary VARVEL, and their 9 children-
-Fannie, Delrog V., John Edward, Sidney, Sadie, Harry A., Burt L., Nellie E., and Jerry
Daniel. They moved to Gordon, NE abt 1890 and resided there until 1912 when they moved to
Pasadena, CA. My Uncle, John D's grandson, recalls that John D. STAUFFER was a
representative to the Nebraska State Legislature from Rushville and that his name is
engraved on the court house in Rushville. I believe that Mary VARVEL STAUFFER'S
father, Daniel VARVEL is buried in the Gordon Cemetary. I would appreciate any
information that would confirm the above or any additional findings concerning the
family. Thank you for having Sheridan County represented on the NEGENWEB!!

- KITZBERGER, VALANDRY
posted by Nick Alther on Monday, June 9, 1997
- I am seeking information regarding the parents of my great grandmother, Anastasia
VALANDRY. Anastasia was born in 1875 (place unknown) and died on Feb. 9th, 1921 in
Bennett County, SD. She worked as a school teacher in the early 1890's in Sheridan County
before her marriage to my great grandfather. She married Vetal VALANDRY on Oct.
7th, 1893 seven miles north of Hay Springs, NE on the C.W. KITZBERGER homestead. I
know Anastasia had two brothers, Frank and Anton. She also had two half sisters, Annie and
Kate. Although I don't know her fathers first name, I believe he ran a freight line in
Nebraska in the 1890's before moving to Omaha. I also think that her mother originated
from Carroll County, Iowa. Nick Alther, 8380 Schroeder Rd, Rapid City, SD 57702. (605)
