Bio Photo I just like coming here to honor, in some small way, people who passed . I say a little prayer for everyone for whom I leave flowers, and I appreciate any flowers and prayers said for my loved ones. Also I want to extend a heart-felt thank you to SSBJ who is sponsoring the page of my grandmother, Muriel Woods. <3--Peggy

For the soliders who gave their lives in service to the country...

"Let them in, Peter
For they are very tired
Give them couches where the angels sleep
And light those fires
Let them wake whole again
To brand new dawns
Fired by the sun
Not war time's bloody guns
May their peace be deep
Remember where the broken bodies lie
God knows how young they were
To have to die

Give them things they like
Let them make some noise
Give dance hall bands not golden harps
To these our boys
Let them love Peter
For they've had no time
They should have bird songs and trees
And hills to climb
The taste of summer
And a ripened pear
And girls as sweet as meadow wind
And flowing hair
And tell them how they are missed
But say not to fear
It's gonna be all right
With us down here"
--"Prayer to St. Peter" by Edwin McCain

RE: Memorial 74939220
Hi!
I discovered that our tiny local library has issues of the Colman Argus dating from 1904-1952. The newspaper stopped publishing in the early 1980s, and the archives aren't easily available anywhere. I've been paging through them and adding the obits to the Find A Grave site. I appreciate being able to do that even though I'm not in charge of the individual records. Many of the obits back then were quite chatty, and they often give some insight into who the people were. I don't think that I'm related to you, but South Dakota is so sparsely populated that who knows...maybe we share a distant relative somewhere.
Best regards,
Brenda

Ellen Havens Wood & George Wood
Hi Peggy,
I came across some information about Ellen and George that has me confused, hoping you can help.
Ellen had a daughter, Abigail who married Jay McDonald. In the 1910 and 1920 census, Ellen was living with the McDonald's in South Dakota and she is shown to be widowed in both census records. However, the George Wood in Pleasant View Cemetery shows his death date as 1926. I am not able to find him in any census record for 1910 or 1920. Do you have any other source on his death date other than the headstone?
Thanks.
Cindy

RE: Ellen & George Woods
Hi Peggy! Thanks for your quick response! I'm really interested in Ellen and Abigail's family - trying to get to know the kind of people they were (likes, hobbies, family stories). It intrigues me that there are still relatives in the area as evidenced by the flowers I found on Ellen's grave when I visited there several years ago. What I do know is that Abigail moved to Nebraska after my grandfather James Taylor passed in Michigan. She then married a Warren Linsley (or Lindsely) a few years after she moved there (probably because she had family, Ellen). I have yet to find anything on him other than what was in her obituary. He died about 10 years before her. There is a Lindsely in the Pleasant View Cemetery but it does not appear to be him. If you or other relatives might be able to shed some light on the Havens family, I'd be ever so grateful. Most of my information is on the Taylor line but I'd be willing to share. Again, thanks for responding! Happy New Year! Kathy

Ellen & George Woods
Hello! I am related to Ellen's sister Abigail who is also buried in Pleasant View Cemetery. I'd love to know more about the family as I was able to locate the cemetery several years ago and it appeared someone was visiting the graves of Ellen and George. I look forward to sharing information about the family.

Sincerely,
Kathy (Texas)

Abigal Havens Taylor
Hi Peggy! I was putting together some information for our upcoming Taylor family reunion in Black River Falls and came across your entries as I was looking for pictures of my great, great grandmother's grave in Pleasant View Cemetery in David City, NE. Abigal or "Abbie" as she was known to the family was the sister of Ellen M Havens Woods - married to George P. Woods. I have hit a dead end regarding my great, great grandfather James Bert Taylor. It appears he may have passed away in Michigan and then Abbie moved to Nebraska, eventually marrying Warren Lindsley. An interesting note on the marriage certificate for Abbie's son Albert Taylor is that Warren Lindsley was a witness. Anyway, I'd love to compare notes and possibly hear more about the Wood family.

your photo of Bud and Gerry's headstone
May I use your photo of the Colclazier headstone? They are my cousins and I haven't gotten to that cemetery yet. You are welcome to any of my headstone photos.

RE: Clemen family
Once again, sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. I am related to John Battus Clemen through his son John J Clemen who married Elizabeth Schmitt. Most of my information is on John J's family. I have only been piecing his parents and brothers/sisters together slowly via FindaGrave connections, so have very little on the rest of the family. If you would like John J's family information, please feel free to contact me again.

RE: Clemen family
Sorry it's taken me so long, and I need to request a little bit more time. I do believe I am related to this family, but I need to pull my large 6-inch 3-ring binder out and locate them so I can tell you how I'm related and give you more family information. I have been extremely busy and usually spend more time on family tree research in late fall through winter, but will try to get to your request in the next couple weeks.
