Thanks, Cindy, for checking for me. I appreciate it. For your info, John Benjamin Johnson was Jay's father. He died in 1919 and is buried with his wife, Mary Ann (her real name was Polina, but she apparently never used that name), in Chadron Greenwood Cemetery. Also buried there are two of his grandchildren. I do not believe John ever worked for the railroad. He was a brickmason and I read somewhere that he helped build the Dawes County Courthouse. Jay and Maud are buried in Hay Springs Cemetery, having spent their retirement years in Hay Springs. I also have four other relatives buried in Munkres Cemetery, an old private cemetery on top of the hill above the Museum of the Fur Trade in the Bordeaux area. Knowing very little about my father's family, I started my genealogy search in Chadron in 1998, knowing that my dad was born there in 1905. For many years Jay's wife, Maud, had a beauty parlor in the living room of their home in Chadron - Affinity.
