Thank you very much. The info you sent is great. I recieved several other e-mails also on some other families on my side yesterday that I need to get to. I am assuming now that you are a son of Lannies' and that Travis and Elaine were your grandparents. Could you provide me with your info. When Jim and I married back in 1974 we attended a couple Schweer Reunions at Harmony Park in Kearney, NE, do remember these. Jim said there was an accident that happen that kinda put an end to these in Kearney at one time. I know we did not attend regularly until they began having them in Hebron, Ne They are now in Fairbury, Ne. because Blanche Otten Rachow and her late husband Bob could no longer do the work. I better get busy with somework now. We talk to you later.
I will introduce myself before I address your photos.. My name is Pam Schroeder and my husband is Jim Schroeder who is the son of Almon and Fern (Steele) Schroeder and he was raised in the Alexandria Thayer County Nebraska area. Jims' grandmother Schroeder was Minnie Schweer a sister to Willie Schweer.
Loved your photos would like to have the names from them. Did notice that you had on the cemetery stones that they were located at Franklin Ne. That is incorrect it should be Grace Lutheran Cemetery at Franklin Township Fillmore County Nebraska This just south of Ohiowa Fillmore County Nebraska. We just had a Schweer Family Reunion this past weekend. Next years will be the 2nd Sunday of August in Fairbury Ne. If you would we will send a invitation.
Was great to find the pictures.
