RE: Roy Patzner memorial
Yes, that is a problem! If the file is too big it will post however it can fit, too. I had to resize a couple of them, that seemed to do the trick! Thank you for all the work you've done and continue to do for Find a Grave!

RE: Roy Patzner memorial
Hello Brian, I'll fix that ASAP. They are all facing correctly on the Find a Grave app on my iPhone but I'll take a look see. The pics are of the 1st Infantry's memorial in Butgenbach, Belgium where Roy Patzner and many others gave their lives. That's my Dad in the one photo. He was there in 1944 and we went back last Spring, 2016.

Janet Strand
Everett Gilbert
Thank you so much for posting this photo for me.

It took me many hours searching through archived newspapers to discover that Everett was one of the victims.

This really means a lot to me and to the display that I will be creating to honor the flu victims at UND.

Again, thank you so much.

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

Julius Rautenberg
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.
