RE: Szigethy photo
Actually, I'm watching reruns and working on the computer. The AC feels real good. The heat is going to take a short break next week, but then back up near 100 by next weekend. It makes it really hard to get out and fill all the requests. At times, I think I'm getting too old to do this anymore, but I do really enjoy it. Chris

RE: Szigethy photo
I had a map for her and her husband was definitely not buried next to her. The weather, not so good. I had 14 headstones to get and its near 100 again today. Sorry the stones you asked for aren't cleaner, but I just couldn't stay out there any longer today. Trimming the grass around them was about all I could do before the thermometer hit over 90 heading towards 100. Chris

RE: Eisenbraun, Leichtfuss
You're always very welcome. Yes, it was a very good night's work. There is an area in the Santa Ana Cemetery that hasn't thoroughly been surveyed for Findagrave. It was Lutheran Church area that was later incorporated into Santa Ana Cemetery so the cemetery office has absolutely no records on the people buried there. That's where the Leichtfuss' are buried along with the photos I posted yesterday for Rogge etc. Chris

Hi Peggy: Wow, you sure have a lot of cousins buried in Santa Ana. I did claim your Leichtfuss request also. I also ascertained through another site that there are 3 more Leichtfuss' buried there. I added them to the cemetery in case you want to check out whether they are part of your family or not. Chris

RE: Eisenbraun transfers
You're very welcome. I was able to claim the requests and hope to get to the cemetery to take photos next week after the 100 degree weather is over. As to Mary Szigethy's husband, I don't believe he is next to her, but I will look. I surveyed that whole section this summer and enter memorials for every headstone I found. I don't go into the office, as they are not friendly to volunteers. They have 80,000 burials in this cemetery, but are computerized. However, if you wish to call them and make an inquiry as a relative, they are very nice to relatives. Chris.

Loyal Meech
RE: Namminga and Reinstra
I was in Springfield, South Dakota to attend the funeral of my mother-in-law Thelma Mae(Elenbaas) Palsma this past week and visited with Larry Namminga. Larry is a grandson of John Rienstra. John was the brother of my wife's grandmother Winnie (Rienstra) Palsma.

Larry asked me to work up a family tree for the
Rienstra's. Since there were two of John Rienstra's daughters who married into the Namminga
family I began to research Emmanuel Reformed Church Cemetery again.

I am not a direct decendent of the Rienstra's or
Namminga's. I did play golf with Lawrence Namminga Jr while I was there. Lawrence and Larry are double cousins.

Got your edits, thank you. Totally a typo on her husband Louis so VERY happy you caught it. He and my dad were first cousins. I also had Madeline's obit but neglected to post it here, so have done that for other's as well. Findagrave has been a wealth of info and I hope to add to that and pass along accurate info for those that follow us :)

RE: Grandview cemetery
Not a problem! I like getting info on people. And, by the way, I like transferring to relatives of the memorials that I submit. So, if these are related, let me know. I just took a bunch of pictures of headstones in grandview & posted them while I was there getting photos of family.

Ellen Haskin Valentine
Mercy, Peggy! Thank you so much! Totally unexpected, and highly appreciated! I'll take good care of her Memorial. I have the most fabulous picture, that I'm SURE is of Ellen, but am still trying to get a 2nd opinion on. She's haughty, with attitude, and I just love it! From about 1880. No name on the back. I have over 100 photos of family and friends, with no names on the back.

I AM going to go ahead and put it on her Memorial. It really can't be anyone else but her.

Thank you, again, Peggy!

Ellen Haskin Valentine, Memorial 106232696 #
Ellen Haskin Valentine is my 1st Cousin, 3X removed. I've spent a lot of time tracking down her siblings, the children of Edwin Haskin and Mary Filer Geer. Mary Filer Geer is my GGGrandfather, Lewis Carl Geer's, sister. Yesterday, I was in Pueblo and managed to track an itty bitty death notice in the Pueblo Chieftain for Ellen. I have been spoiled by small town obituaries that actually give a body some information. The information I've given you is correct.
Thank you,
