You're quite welcome!

Thank you for doing this for me. It looks like a beautiful cemetery. I hope some day we can put headstones on every one.
Take care, Sharon Wohlrab Hutchins
|Rob Podlasek||Susan Biegler grave|
I will happily fulfill your photo request for Susan Biegler in Oakland Cemetery in St. Paul if you will contact the cemetery office and get a grave location and confirm that there is a stone. Their number is (651) 224-2366.
Correction, section 2.
|Frank Krempel||RE: Henry Becker|
Thank you so much. I have had very good service from the folks at Wunders but this was kind of a dead end. I was planning on taking a trip there and looking myself. Knowing it is in section 1 will help a great deal. Henry was my second great grand father.
