Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've lived on a farm/ranch in northeast Colorado for 51 years. Before that, I was a city girl. My husband and I have three grown children and 7 grandchildren. I retired in 2007, and now spend every spare moment doing genealogy research online. Most of my ancestors were in VA, MO, NC, and PA. I am a member of DAR, always looking for Johnson, Kivett, Pyrtle, Stone, Spencer, Shelton, Gessley, McCart, McGinnis, Donovan,and Hunter surnames.

Leona Blinde Kokes Fredericksen
Hi Patty,
I just discovered a duplicate memorial for Leona Fredericksen. See: Yours - 73767395 and #44121412 by Dolores Hahn. Dolores created her memorial on Nov 09, 2009, so has the earlier entry; your is Jul 22, 2011.

If you could add your wonderful photograph of Leona and John Kokes headstone to Dolores' memorial, it would complete the memorial for Leona; then delete your memorial.

If you are related to Leona, you might check with Dolores and see if she is, also. If you are and she is not, she might be willing to transfer the memorial to you. If she is, and you are, you have found a cousin.

Thank you for attending to this matter. I will request the addition of William Fredericksen to Dolores' memorial.

It is so easy to duplicate memorials, especially - in this case - when the name is different.

Again, thank you.
Jean Jorgensen, researcher of the Frederiksen family of Nuckolls County, Nebraska.

RE: Martha Christensen
Hi Patty,
Thank you for your continued interest in maintaining Martha's memorial page. I appreciate that you are willing to make any additions or corrections. I am attempting to compile a family history book and it is truly helpful to reference Find A Grave and share information.
Thank you. Jean

Martha Christensen
Are you still working with Find A Grave memorials? You have started a memorial for Martha Christensen of Busnell, Kimball Co., Nebraska (# 84284572).

Martha is the only sibling left, in the family I am working with, who is not connected with her parents. I have submitted corrections to her memorial page but they have not been accepted by you.

Just in case you don't know how to do this: go to your profile "messages" page and select the "Edits" file at the top of the page. Any edits (corrections and additions) to the memorial pages you manage, will be listed here. You can "accept" or "reject" the corrections.

I am trying to complete the entries for this family. If you don't mind, you could also transfer her memorial page to me for management. Martha is a Great Aunt of my husband; her brother, Peter, is my husband's grandfather.

Thank you,

Thanks for linking George in Dix to his father. George's Killham great? grandparents arrived on the same train to Potter, NE as one set of my Great-Great grandparents. He married into my family, and was my School bus driver while I attended Dix for three years.

RE: Emma Griswold
Regarding grave marker accuracy I completely agree with you. Just because it's carved in stone doesn't mean it's carved in stone!

Thank you for checking the information on the marker for me. While it doesn't solve my problem (the dates don't add up correctly with my research) at least I know that the Find A Grave information accurately reflects what's on the stone. Very much appreciated! Thank you.
