Do you have a photo of this person buried in Pleasant Valley Lutheran Church rural Vermillion? I just added the spouse Sylvia Johnson and did not find his memorial. Thanks Brad.

Thomsen photo
Thanks again Brad, for the many photos! Do you happen to know if her husband (Johanna's) Carl Thomsen is buried there also? I don't see a listing on FInd A Grave. Bob

HAKL at Sacred Heart in Yankton
Thanks for the excellent photos, that was really fast as I requested 7 photos a few hours ago and six of the 7 were already uploaded.

Elsie Hakl (1920-1939) was not uploaded. Was there a problem locating? I am not particularly concerned so don't make a special trip.

All of the headstones are identical design. Can I assume that they were all together?

Thanks again,

Thanks for the picture of the Joseph Zolnowsky grave
Thank you very much for providing the grave picture of my great-great grandparents, Joseph and Josefina Zolnowsky. I very much appreciate this, and hope to visit the grave this summer.

Russ Hamm
Rohans in Newcastle
Dear Brad -

Thank you so much for the quick and thorough response to my photo request. This means a lot to my whole family. Rose was born Rose Ann Tracy in 1819 in Ireland. She was married to Edward Rohan, who according to records is also buried in the same cemetery in Newcastle but does not appear on the listing of 19 Rohans on the Find A Grave website. Anthony was their son, and his wife was Julia Ann Kelley Rohan, also buried there, according to Find A Grave. So I understand you did not find Edward or Julia Ann as well?

Anthony Charles "Tone" Rohan 1849 - 1898
Find A Grave memorial #37099343

Julia Ann Kelley Rohan 1852 - 1899
Find A Grave memorial #80576591

Edward Rohan 1815 - 1899
not listed on Find A Grave

Thanks again,

I just saw you book "Aisle of the Forgotten Graveyard". I was curious what this book is about. Is it about a certain cemetery and the burials there? Is it a fictional mystery?
Just curious.

Thanks for trying. I was just trying to find him so I can link him to his wife. I will check out the cemetery this summer when her stone is put up. Thanks

RE: Greenwood Cemetery photos
Surprisingly, both of my parents, and all of my grandparents and great-grandparents are from the Knox, Pierce, Wayne and surrounding county areas. I currently have over 65,000 people connected in my family tree. If you are rooted in the area, possibly even you! I don't get back there but once a year at best, so I really appreciate your work in the area. May I have your permission to use your photos on

Hello Brad,
Thank you so much for the excellent detective work that solved the mystery of Louis's gravestone location. I truly appreciate each and every photo you have taken. I know they are not easy to find. Sorry for the delay on the thank you. I hope all is well with you and yours.

St. Wen's in Tabor
Heh Brad, just checking in, hope you had a good summer, It looks like someone has been busy taking photos at St. Wen's which is great, I am almost done adding the 1930 WPA Survey, have received numerous requests for more info, and some corrections, but heh that's part of the wishes, DC/Gilly

Thanks for transfer of Tony Sears in Yellow Smoke
I appreciate this--and also I thank you for the "flower" you added (that is now in my scrapbook too). It was kind of sad that his mother died just a few days after he did.

RE: Elisabeth Hochstein
Hi Brad,

I sent to Hartington Library for her obituary but I have NO doubt that Elizabeth (Foerster) Hochstein is the wife of Joseph Hochstein

and that the biography was incorrect. I also changed her name from Elizabeth to Elisabeth. The 1880 census has her name as Elisabeth.

My Elisabeth was born June 15, 1840 and died September 5, 1904.

Thanks so much!!!

RE: Elisabeth Hochstein
Elizabeth (Foerster) was born June 15 1840.

I got her death date from a book entitled FAMILIES OF SS. PETER AND PAUL, pgs 115, 116. It is possible they typed the wrong death date (September 9, 1911) because the birth date matches yours and she was not married to Anton.

You wrote: The other has dates of 6-15-1840 to 9-5-1904 so neither DOD matches the memorial.


I'll change the dates to match yours but leave the bio as it is and and (sic) after the death date they have.

I'll send for an obit.

Thanks Brad.

RE: 125081725
Hi Brad,
This is the third time I have tried to answer your email. We are having trouble with our server, I guess. At any rate I will try to be a clear as possible.

According to Esther Scott Sinclair's husband, two sons and one granddaughter, all three have written in their family records that Esther Scott Sinclair was buried on the South Dakota bluffs overlooking across the river onto River Sioux Park which Park was/is in Iowa. Mildred Sinclair Nolan tried to find the graves for us since she remembered her Father, George Sinclair taking the family many times to visit her grandmother's grave. We were unable to find the grave site due to time and weather taking its toll. Trees had grown and died, grass and soil blowing had changed the character of the soil. Ken and I were very disappointed to be unable to pinpoint the site. We wanted to have it marked. Mildred was our last hope. The others are all gone. She only searched in South Dakota, nowhere in Iowa.

Nowhere on the findagrave site do I see a reference to burial in Iowa. Do you have an obit I have been unable to find?

One other item: Do any of you know where Sioux Point, Dakota territory was located in 1860s and 1870s. I have references to that landing spot.

Thanks for your concern for accuracy. I share it too.

Incorrect picture you posted
You posted the entry to St. Michael's Cemetery in Hartington, Nebraska on the St. Michael Cemetery in Coleridge, Ne. This should be corrected.

RE: Kid Gallagher
I just drove over the hill through the maintenance site and into the cemetery. I can't say that is the particular stone. I intended to say that it is a representative one. There is no real way of knowing which is which without a map and the display board on the site only lists names, sometimes prison numbers and death dates. All of the graves with names on their stones are photographed and on
