My g-greatgrandfather is 'Oscar Charles Budinske."  He was part of the Dodge County draft during WWI.  I have noticed on the rootsweb page with this information that there is an 'Arthur Budenski.'  Were these two men related, and their names spelled differently?  I also want to know if you have any other information on these individuals.  Thank you.

Looking for any information, including land records, dwelling locations, on my Great-great Grandparents, Caleb Woodword Cook and wife, Laura Ann Bessey Cook, who moved from Wisconsin to Nebraska sometime between 1859 and 1863.
My research says that they are buried in Fremont's Ridge Municipal Cemetery. I plan to visit the cemetery in the next few weeks. Their daughter, Augusta Cook, born 1836 in Michigan, died 1/19/1907 in Nickerson NE, buried Hooper NE. Other children who probably moved to Dodge County include, Phoebe (1857-1886), Isiah, Milan (died 1923), Capiloria (1859-1908), Julia, Luella. [Several other children did lived less that 1 year.]

Another child of Caleb and Laura Cook was my Great Grandmother, Helen Cook Warren, born 1839 in Michigan, married in Wisconsin, had a daughter in 1862, died Dec of 1866. I have found her husband (along with second wife) and father-in-law's graves in Wisconsin. But my dad (age 90) and I are very disheartened that we have not found Helen Cook Warren's grave in that same area.  We have actually scoured all cemeteries in that county. I had a thought on that-- wondering if her body was shipped by rail to Nebraska to be buried there (probably in Dodge County).

The reason I believe the Cooks lived only in Dodge County, was because there last child, Adelade Cook, was born and died in Maple Precinct, Dodge County, Feb of 1963.  Could you tell me exactly where Maple Precinct is???  Any  info on this family would be appreciated.  Many thanks.

I am trying to discover the death date and burial location of James S. REED. I know that he was alive as late as March 10, 1888 because he married Mary Maria Harmon on that date in Fremont.  I believe that Mary was his second wife (he would have been 65 years old at the date of his marriage).  Here is what I have on James and Mary:
James Stryker Reed (baptized on February 1, 1823 in Bridgewater Township, Somerset county, NJ).  Mary Maria Harmon (June 17, 1833 Suffield, Hartford, Connecticut). Many thanks.


Laura M Rentfro Thrus, 6 Feb 2003
My ggg-grandparents Friedrich Draemel (1829-1910) and Auguste Amalie Bovetz (1831-1891) immigrated from Germany in 1869 and are found in Pebble township, Dodge county, NE on the 1870 census (as Dramer).  Does anyone know what port German immigrants coming to this area usually came through?  Also, their son Friedrich/Frederick Draemel (1858-1939)
married Johanna Nilson (1861-1945).  She was the daughter of Mans/Munse Nilsson and Anna Swanson (Svensdotter).  They immigrated from Sweden before 1880.  Does anyone have any info on Swedish immigration to this area?  Also, would love to talk to anyone working on Draemels or Nilsons.
