Jane married Victor Allen Miller. She died after the birth of their second child. Victor died in 1950 as I recall and is buried in Beatrice. Jane is buried at the Holland Cemetery at Holland NE. I have been unable to locate her grave. It seems she died on March 16th but I don't remember the year at the moment. The cemetery stones were vandalized many years ago. The church along with the records were burned in the late 1800 and again in 1929. I presume she is buried on the north end of the cemetery as there have not been any new graves there in 60 to 70 years and there is a lot of blank area. And I'm sure the keeper of the books knows there are many full graves which are unmarked. I have visited with him about this and of course he is not of help because the job was handed to him without the information. Every one who would have known is dead. Two sets of my grandparents are there and their death information proves it, however, we cannot find their graves. message board:
