My grandfather, Ray Clark Gillett, was born June 7, 1883, in Fremont, Nebraska.  His parents were Clark Gillett and Clara Austin.  I'm trying to find more information on his parents and thought any data I could get on Ray's birth in Nebraska could provide some information on his parents.

We are researching the family of Henry N.C. JURGING (JUERGING), born Nov 1873 in Germany and his wife, Evangeline May HUGHES, born May 1876 in Fremont, NE to Judson HUGHES (son of Archer HUGHES) and Alice GLIDDEN. We believe that both Henry and Evangeline died during 1951 in San Diego Co., CA.

Their daughter, Para Louise JURGING, was born 1908 and we believe they were living in or near Fremont, Dodge Co., NE at that time. Para Louise married Ward Nolin STEPHENS in 1927 in Pasadena, Los Angeles Co., CA. Ward Nolin STEPHENS married again later, what happened to Para Louise? Did she have any siblings?  Is anyone reseaching this family?

Hello, I am interested in finding out information on the parents of one Ernest Lewellyn [Laudenslager?], who was born in Hooper, NB on 15 April 1902.  I have the name of Anna Jarrett as his mother but don't know if this is her given surname or a name by marriage, nor what name she had when she gave birth to Ernest.    The other possible last name of course would be Laudenslager.  I thank you for your time and attention.

I'm looking for information on the parents of James Duffek, my paternal great-grandfather. James was born on Feb 14, 1871 in Omaha, but his family moved to Dodge County shortly thereafter. I found a marriage record for James Duffek and Katherine (Katie) Krofta from February 12, 1896, page 252 in the Marriage Record - the Marriage Record is from Dodge County and lists James' residence as Pleasant Valley, Neb. (in Dodge County).

Unfortunately, his parents' full names are illegible on my copy of the marriage record. It appears that his father's first name started with a "V", and his mother's name appears to be Barbara James. James Duffek and his wife later moved to Knox County (around Sparta/Verdigre) and is buried in Knox County, but apparently his parents weren't with him as there are no evident burial sites in Knox County for these individuals.

If anyone can help me identify who James' parents are, as well as any potential siblings or grandparents, it would be greatly appreciated!
