Thank you for adding all the edits I've put in today. I got one piece of additional information on George W. Philbrick that I didn't think I would find when I did the earlier edit on him.

You really do a great job, and I greatly appreciate it.

Thank you for finding all of the burials that I've requested at Almont Cemetery, Glen Ullin Cemetery, and Saint Johns Cemetery. I have a lot of relatives in Morton County, ND and they are all related to my maternal grandfather and he was born in Morton County, ND too.

I finally read your newspaper article; what a great story! That is how I feel these last 2 years working on my family tree. I'm currently working on my great-great family & I'm finding I'm related to much of the county (lol). Which is why I'm apologizing; I try to update all the info I can on the 1st pass, I'm sorry you have to go back in to add one more little item. argh!

Keep up the good work. I truly admire people with this kind of dedication.

Steve G. Padis
Dear Mr. Backes:
My uncle, Steve G. Padis (b. May 27, 1926 d. Jul. 30, 1939) is buried in Rosehill Memorial Park in Minot, ND. We saw in the picture that you posted on "Find A Grave," that his grave stone picture had been vandalized, and I contacted a company in Minot (Jack Monument), and paid to have it fixed. The entire family has moved to California, and I am the only one left to take care of these thngs. I was wondering if you could take another picture of his grave, showing his new grave stone and picture. It broke my heart to see that this unfortunate lost boy had his grave site disturbed, and I would very much appreciate a new picture being posted on the Find A Grave website. Thank you for your kindness and work on the behalf of all of the families and their departed family members.

Hi Debbie, You're very welcome. I am spending my evening posting gravestone photos. I was at Hebron yesterday taking over 800 gravestone photos so I have lots of work to do.
