RE: duplicate memorial
Thank you James. I think just deleting it is the easiest way to take care of it, since it would involve transferring several family links if I tranferred my duplicate to you. I did steal the obit you posted on your memorial, I didn't have one...hope you don't mind. Let me know if that is a problem. Thank you again for helping me out with this, much appreciated. I'm from Downers Grove, IL originally, now in Hawaii. Guess we both headed for warmer digs. Apparently we're a couple of wimps who couldn't survive the winters anymore, LOL!

duplicate memorial
Hi James. I believe we have a duplicate memorial for Marjorie G. Mau. Yours #5061430 and mine #46780172. I inherited the memorial from another contributor who posted it in 2010. She apparently didn't see your 2000 posting. Marjorie is a relative of mine & I would like to have her if that's okay with you. I have her maiden name, links to her family, birthdate, headstone photo & cemetery location. If that's agreeable to you, would you mind transfering her so I can merge the memorials or if its easier just delete it as I have the info that's on your memorial. Thank you!

Hi James,
Thanks so much for the transfer and your attitude towards transfers. You're a breath of fresh air and not one of those awful, mean, and nasty Find A Grave hoarders. I like your style! I'm going through the Payot family, which is connected to me, and can now add bio info at will.
Thanks again,

Edit for Evelyn Duha
I have a question about the edit you sent me for Evelyn Duha indicating her maiden name is "Eulgem."

Her obit states that she was born to John and Clara (Eulgem) Duha. And, according to the obit, her mother's maiden name was Eulgem. It says nothing about her ever having had been married, thus no maiden name.

Having said that, obits don't always share ones entire life, only what the obit creator wants included. Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance, Kathy

Jean-Thomas Couture
You posted the obit for my son, Jean-Thomas born 1994 died 2000 here and I thank you. There is at least one other post maybe two for him on this site. You mark in your post burial place unknown. I thought you might like to know where it is and if you are ever by you can stop by and visit him. He would like that. He always enjoys a visit from a friend. If you can please place a gift on his stone of a special pinecone, small stone or a sea shell as these are things he likes to collect.
Jean-Thomas is buried at Millburn Cemetary across from Millburn Elementary School in Millburn, Lake County, Illinois.

William Henry Stayton
Thanks for the transfer of the beautiful memorial and tombstone photo of William. I am distantly related - 3rd cousin, once removed. Unfortunately I cannot locate the graves of the ancestral sisters - Hester Numbers Moffet (his) and Mary Numbers Conner (mine) or their father Charles Numbers. I suspect that they are somewhere in Delaware, maybe Bryn Zion.

Osseo cemetery
Hi Jim! Thank you so much for all the recent transfers and updates! I've been having a good time finding obits and linking families together of my ancestors ancestors! I'm going to be in Osseo at Xmas, so I plan to stop by library and hopefully copy some cemetery indexes, but in the meantime, is there any way you have easy access to an index for Osseo cemetety, the one off County O? I'm hoping I might find a few lost ancestors there. If you don't have, no problem, I can get it in a few weeks. Thanks so much for all you do! I really value you and your sister's time! Cyndi

Greetings! I am seeking permission to attach the headstone photos you've taken of the VanSickle family to my family tree on Ancestry. Thank you for your consideration.

Sauk City Cemetery-Sauk City Wisconsin
You probably are aware of this as the picture has been posted for several years but the picture you submitted of the small chapel (church) in the middle of a cemetery is actually in the adjacent cemetery of St Aloysious. Sauk City is the public non-denominational and St. Aloysious is the Catholic cemetery. They are two very separate cemeteries although next to each other.

Too bad your not able to be in Menomonie for May.
I do appreciate all the photos you took!
In March, I spent hard earned money and had the archives in Stavanger, Norway research my Great-Grandfather "John Johnson". They found the information zip! So I had to return to the Kingdom of Norway and visit the farm and the churches where they had been members! Very rewarding experience!
In earlier trips, I visited the places where the other three families came from.
Just for fun, I had my DNA done and yes, I am very happy with that too. Hard to be humble when your Norwegian!
Also in May, I was in Trondheim for the 200th Ann. of the signing of the constitution. The worship service at the cathedral on the 17th was perfect as the re-cycled organ was played! What a treat!
Genealogy is a life long illness that I usually enjoy but then there are "walls" that drive me to drink!
So it is.....

Mabel Robelia Johnson Overby
Mabel's daughter shared a neat photo of Mabel and I added it to Find A Grave.
Would you mind removing the one you posted?
Also, the Dunn County Genealogical Society is having a program the 16th May, 2015.
It will include information about Highland Cemetery among other things. Since you did almost all the gravestone photos, it would be great if you and your sister could be there.

Koeppe vs. Loeppe
There is a Koeppe (with photo attached) and also a Loeppe with an obit attached (yours) but it appears that the memorials should be combined into one. You might want to contact the other contributor to incorporate the info contained in both of them into one memorial.

Added by Vickie61997 on Nov 10, 2014 2:26 PM

Laone Hilton Koeppe
There seems to be a typo -- Loeppe is listed in the Grand Ridge Cemetery and it appears that it should be Koeppe.
