Hi Kathy,

I have a question about Find A Grave. I added some information on the Mason City Cemetery and when I click on the contributor of the memorial site it states that she has deceased. Her name in still on the memorial site so what happens with the edits? Her name is CarrolS #4768581. Thanks for helping me.

Thanks for adding all the obits I
have typed in. I'm only on the "B's".

RE: Sherman Cbits
Hi Kathy,

I live in Litchfield and a good friend of mine served on the cemetery board for many years. In our daily visits I mentioned that I have been going to my hometown and coping obits from the old newspapers and typing them on Find A Grave. Yesterday she was at my door with a large stack of old obituaries that has been kept through the years for people contacting the board for info on loved ones. These are just newspaper clippings and I have no way of knowing what paper they were clipped from. I hope my efforts will help people find loved ones. This is addictive.

RE: Nettie Clements Burke
As far as I know, and I am by no means complete, I do not have any Burke relatives in the Ord Cemetery.

I need to get to the Ord Cemetery myself. I do not know anything about the Burke's there, but will find out.

RE: Christian Hosner Burial
I think you should just leave his burial as it is. I contacted a lady who has the list of burials and she said when she received the book, some pages were torn out, so maybe his name is on a missing page. Someone must have thought he was buried there or they wouldn't have placed it in their tree. I haven't found him anywhere else so he could be there. And his wife remarried twice more after he passed. So I he is ok where he is. Maybe someday we will get proof. Carol

Ft. Lincoln Cemetery
In order to have your request fulfilled, please call Lincoln Cemetery and ask for the exact location of the grave. They can be a little difficult about giving out this information and it may take several calls. Just keep bugging them. 301-864-5090. Post the location in the memorial page in order to have your request fulfilled. It is impossible for requests to be fulfill the request without this info because they will not give it to us. The cemetery is huge and can not be walked.

RE: Christian Hosner Burial
Don't remove him yet. I will find someone from that area who might have a burial list. I hope he is in it, because I've wondered where he ended up. Thanks

Christian Hosner Burial
Do you have any proof that Christian Hosner is buried in the Gruetli Cemetery? He is my husband's grand uncle on his mother's side. I know that the Platte Valley Kin Seekers have walked all of the Platte County cemeteries twice and there is no headstone for him or they would have made a memorial and placed a picture with it. If you can cite a source for his burial, that would be great. Thanks

Hanna Olsen
Kathy ~ I connected Hanna to her parents, & noticed on her mother's memorial the mention of a brother Peter, also to be in Logan Park. He is there, if you hadn't found him, under 'Olson'. I recall taking the photos because they were spelled differently in the same lot. (My maiden name was Oleson, no relation, so it stuck in my mind!)

RE: Frank Rowell pic
Hi Kathy: Sorry I took the photo of the wrong Frank Rowell. There are two Franks listed in the cemetery. You should put your request up again. I have put in an edit for the Frank you are looking for with his correct location. Hopefully, he will have a headstone. Chris

RE: Bertha May Luke Donley
I remember Harriet as a child; she had serious health problems her entire life. My mother just told me the other day what disease she fought her entire life, and I have forgotten already. In the end, I believe that she passed away as a result of Hodgens Disease. I can ask my mom; Harriet was her first cousin - my mother (Nancy McCormick Shaw)is the last child still alive of Bertha's grandchildren; she is an only child and all of her first cousins have passed.

Yes, the Lawrence is probably buried in Coshocton County, Ohio; my mom said he died prior to Bertha moving to Grove City, Ohio. She could not remember his first name. I misspoke earlier - the Lukes are actually my great, great grandparents and their daughter, Bertha, would be my great grandmother.
