Jesse was born on a farm outside of Elsie Neb.His mother Sarah died during childbirth of a youger sister and his father Frank passed away when he was 12. He had a sister who has passed on also and neither one of them knew anything about thier past, as they were raised by a family friend, the Fliechers in Imperial Neb.Louise Mildred Matchett was his wife and they had 3 girls Leota, Irene, Marylin and two boys Bill and Frank. Marylin was my mother. All the children are alive and getting on with age at this time. I am trying to find thier roots to give them an idea where they are from. Jesse was buried in 1973 in Neb. I was very close with My Grandma Mildred as she lived with us during the 70's. Unfortunately I never displayed an interest in geneology at that time. Now she has passed on , although from my Mom I have found out that no one had any info anyway. Any help in locating Frank's history would be appreciated. I would image that he was born around 1870-1880 time frame due to Jesse being born to Frank and Sarah on Nov 12 1898.Any information to his history would be greatly appreciated.
