|Bio and Links|
I'm a sociologist at UW-Eau Claire, book lover, travel lover, family lover. . .|
Much of my work on Find-A-Grave is coordinated with my daughter, Sandi Knutson Kaduce. We are particularly interested in cemeteries in Barron, Chippewa, Dunn, and Clark counties in Wisconsin.
Genealogy is my passion. Recording information and taking pictures of graves in my area is an important service I can provide to others. I appreciate those who add information and pictures that I do not have geographical access to. The ability to "connect the dots" or fill in the branches, so to speak, of our family trees is deeply meaningful to me. I also love history and appreciate the history I explore as I learn more about the graveyards and communities around me.
I am willing to share pictures and information with anyone, but I expect to be given credit for pictures used by others.
My love for graveyards, and the stories they hold, began with reading Edgar Lee Masters' "Spoon River Anthology" as a teenager. It is a collection of free-form poems, one for each individual buried in Spoon River (a fictional town). It is now entirely available on the internet: http://spoonriveranthology.net/spoon/river/. Enjoy!

|Nancy (Cowley) Weise||Hi|
Could I get a transfer for this man and his wife as they are relatives of mine? Then I can link them to their families.

Melville, Mary Ann Roycraft there is an error on Marys date of death.
|Martha Berryman||Shilts and Edson Union|
Thanks so much for all of your hard work. I'm still sifting through everything and hopefully I'll have it all updated and cleaned up and figured out by this weekend. I've been busy teaching family history classes this week and that is consuming a lot of my time right now. But I did want to make sure that I took the time to thank you and your daughter. Just so you know, Jackson and Louisa Purdy Shilts are my direct line. That's kind of how it all fits together. Thanks again!
|JBS Gauger||Edson Union Cemetery|
Yes I was at Edson Union Cemetery last week. We have a cabin south of there. A close friend of mine is the sexton of Union and is doing some research through the old cemetery records. I gave her the list of requested and will be sending her the entire list without pictures. Hopefully we'll get some answers. This fall we are going to go through the cemetery. Want to join us? Judie Gauger
Thank you for your hard work today. It is greatly appreciated!
