Willman-Feland families in North Dakota
Hey are you related to the Willman-Feland families? Because Emil Margido Willman Sr. and Olivia Feland were both my great great grandparents. I've seen that you've added so many Willman and Feland descendants in Sims Cemetery in North Dakota too.

Thank you,
Dustin Schrull

Thanks again Brian
It's good to see. All of the care the little baby's grave has received. I take photos in my local cemetery and know this is not always true. I promise to remember to not request photos during the winter.

So sorry for your loss! I hope that you have a lot of her genes - being 101 is quite an accomplishment.

Her memorial has been transferred to you.

First of all thank you for all you do for find-a-grave and for all of us that are unable to see our family's headstones in real life so I for one an so thankful there are people like you that give so much to others. THANK YOU SO MUCH...Next I would like to know if you would allow me to use your headstone photos on my ancestry family tree I would give you and find a grave credit for the use of it. I will wait for a reply. Just to let you know I would understand if your answer is no so by all means dont feel you have to do it. I thank you again and will be waiting for your reply. Jane Hall
