I think the directions for Penuel Welsh Cemetery contain an error. From E edge of Stella, 2 miles N and then 3.5 E? This web site says 3.5 W. I think 3.5 E is correct. Thanks for checking on this.

My grandparents were "sailors" and "smith" or schmidt, from Germany. My grandmother's sister married a Palmer in Barada North township.

How did you find this web site? Googled it ...
Not yet .... lookin however.
Trying to figure out if there is a "Whitefield Cemetery" in or near Richardson County. I have an obit from a family member that mentions it without giving a location. The source was the 1925 Humboldt NE paper. The obit is dated March 6, 1925 - Humboldt Nebraska, Richardson County. It reads in part: "Mrs. Sarah (Smelser) Hurst - Resident of this city Forty Years - Dies at Densmore, Kansas" and also "Funeral services were held in Densmore, and at the request of the deceased, which she had a number of times made, she was laid to rest in the family lot in Whitefield Cemetery."

So .... was Whitefield an old community that no longer exists? Was that a private family cemetery for the Whitefield family? Could it have been renamed since 1925? The fact that it doesn't mention the state (ie KS) suggests that it was a local name (to Humboldt NE) and was known by all. HELP!

I'm trying to locate Hiram Smith Waggener, Mary Creasy Waggener, William S. Waggener ( Hiram's son), & William's wife. The last that I found Hiram & Mary was in the 1910 census in Richardson Co, NE.
