RE: Obituary
Thanks Brian. I am slowly working through old newspapers that the Library of Congress has posted online. I'm a big history buff, so I find this information fascinating. And I figured if could help others at the same time, great. I'm sure our "paths" will be crossing quite a bit.

Wilhelmina(Matilda) Klawitter
It's me again have been so helpful....I am taking advantage I am afraid..... Johanna Augusta Rautenberg's mother..Wilhelmine Klawitter came with Johanna and Julius to America -St Paul- then to Bismark ND.....she died there--but we have no date.....We think somewhere from 1894--1897. She lived with Johanna and her family...No record at Fairview Cemetery or St. Mary's Cemetery.....However...Wilhelmine's son (Johanna's brother) Fred Klawitter (long time resident) purchased a plot-SW1/4 (graves 7-8 ) Lot 1 Block 1 Original Plat at Fairview Cemetery..... there is no record of anyone buried there on file...but I am questioning whether his mother might be buried there........Fred and his family are all buried at StMary's Catholic Cemetery in Bismark......I am questioning why anyone, especially at those times would buy a cemetery plot and not use it........Cathy Brunt

Thank you so much for the obituary information....I don't think the family had much money for an additional memorial....their farm had to be sold to pay off their debts and the girls moved to Canada to be near their older brother... Cathy Brunt

Hello Brian,
Thanks for the wonderful memorial for Herb. I lived in Mohall, ND when he was teaching at Mohall. He was a highly respected educator in that town. Thanks for the memory of him.

Brian, Thanks so much for the picture of the grave marker for Lynne Fleck, you took a very nice photo. I appreciate your service so much as I am unable to drive and take photos myself. It used to be a fun thing but as we age it is more difficult. So thanks again.

Burleigh Co. N.D. photo T.J. Tully
I am a Vermont Civil War buff, and am working on a project to identify the last resting place of many old soldiers/sailors that had ties to Vt. Terrence J. Tully is one such patriot, serving in the 13th Regiment of Vt. Vols.May I use the photo that you contributed to his Find A Grave memorial, to post on the Vt.C.W. site? (

I also see your name on other memorial pages for contributions of photo's. ( Vt. Civil War related) May I use these too?

You would receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration. Deanna French
