Bio and Links
Bio Photo I developed taphophilia in Nov 2007. I'm adding what I can, photos and accurate transcriptions, because stones deteriorate and there's no better time than now.

On a philosophical note: I believe that an unmarried woman's surname should never be listed in the "maiden name" field, and a divorced woman who returned to her maiden name should also have that name as her surname

RE: Multiple surnames or maiden names
How do I know which sir name to use? Birth records say one thing Death records say another... Census records have one name then the other...

Libbie Vadnais Vadnis
Hi Chris, You requested that I change her last name to Vadnis. I know it is spelled that way on her gravestone but the headstone is spelled Vadnais and I know a family with that name spelled that way. Do you know of Libbie? Are you positive that Vadnis is the correct spelling and Vadnais is wrong? I hesitate to change it unless you are sure and you know this family. Please let me know. Thanks much!

RE: So. Af. surnames?
Hi Chris
The problem is that the cemeteries are in such bad condition that they have been desecrated and thus the surnames are missing. Hopefully by making these available family members will come forward and help us with the surnames. Or I check the national archives websites to see if there is a match from time to time.
Hope this answers your question?
Regards
Heather

Kenneth G.
No, this is not a duplicate of Kenneth G. Stein. There is an old stone that only Kenneth G. can be read. I will try to take a photo of this stone so you see the difference. Thanks for checking though!

RE: Misplaced photo
CHRIS

Have replaced the photo with the correct one. For the mistake I made, I am going back to Fort Snelling this weekend and take a more appropriate photo for this Vet.

Thanks for the info

Princeton City Cemetery
Thanks for your help with the memorials in Princeton City Cemetery.

I photographed the entire cemetery earlier this year, but there were many stones that I had difficulty reading. There was a cemetery restoration day on Monday, September 8, that helped me figure out a bunch of names I couldn't figure out before.

I'm working on a list of names/stones that I will be meeting with the sexton on in the near future. Hopefully, more unknowns will be solved then.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks - I forgot to hit the tab to put his last name where it belonged. Once I hit the send button I couldn't tell it wasn't in the right place.

Thank you for the new script, which brought my memorial back into the skinny width.
