Your Flickr Photos
I was curious to look at the photos you posted at Flickr. You must be able to restore old photos, too? I was hoping to find a photo of one of my relatives but did not. The photos were fantastic to view, and your photography is art! You are very talented!

RE: Marie Charipar
thank you.

FYI-I have sent a request to link another daughter Esther M Charipar Dye (#143807562) buried in Oak Hill Cemetery in Cedar Rapids with her husband. She was a close friend of my mother's.

There is a 3rd daughter Bessie Charipar Wagner but she moved to Wisconsin in the 1940s so is probably buried out of state

RE: Charipar info in Cedar Rapids
thank you-sorry for initial confusion over the maiden name of Marie-it was the Vaclav that confused me and I originally thought this was senior rather than junior.

The Benesh-Charipar's are my step great grandmother's family (My gr grandfather's second wife Josephine who raised my maternal grandmother and was a close step grandmother to my mother). They came from Bohemia and went by the name of Charipar but "Benesh" is on my gr grandmother's marriage licence and a few other documents. Not sure if it is the Czeck version or if Vaclav was actualy Mary Krupa's second husband and he raised all or most of the children who were born in Bohemia.

This Vaclav (the junior) went by the name of Wencil (all censuses from 1880 to 1930 except for W.F. in 1925 Iowa Census). He and his parents came to Cedar Rapids shortly after his birth. He and his wife lived at 1432 C Street W from at least 1900-1930.

Marie was the daughter of Anton & Anna Kusy Motycka of Bohemia however Marie was born in Cedar Rapids. I am glad that you added a FindAGrave. My mother had smudged Maries date of death in a book she kept and the Iowa Cemetery Records project had listed her death as 1937 rather than 1957-the tombstone picture was fuzzy.

RE: Norah Morgan info
Hi Dave,
No, I think you're correct...I've had her name forever, found her in the 1940 census with her half sister Eva, I was just hoping for a lead...anyway, thanks!

James & Ursa Morgan
Hi Dave,
I noticed for the burial info on James E. Morgan, you have listed a daughter "Norah H. Morgan" and 2002 as a date of death. I've been researching this family in part for nearly 30 years, could you give me an idea what her married name was...or where she died, anything that would point me in the right direction. Thanks!

I would like to ask you for permission to use your Find A Grave photo's of Civil War Veterans on the Vermont Civil War data base. ( You would get the credit for this, and "bring home" many old soldiers/sailors who had some tie to Vermont,ie; birth, marriage, service, death etc.

Thank you for your consideration on this.

RE: Mr. Sanders' birthdate:
hahaha! You wouldn't believe some of the stuff I've seen in Ancestry trees- 80 year old women having babies, or dying years before their "kids" were ever born, etc. Baby steps! :-)
