Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have had a blast finding relatives, living and passed, from findagrave. I hope I will be able to discover more about the past while helping others in their search.

I work from internment list, please contact me if you think I've made a typo, want to add more information or just want to take over the memorial page. I tried to carefully enter all information just as if it was my own families, but mistakes still happen and I can only enter what is already on the list (mistakes included, so please be kind in pointing errors out). Can't wait to start on the next cemetery!

RE: Cecelia 'Celia' True
Ah, your distance would prove to be an issue! I will do some leg work and see what I can find. My thoughts: I believe there is only one woman given the unique name, & the details match from the obit to the census records. I think you are right about the financial/burial issue needing to be delayed, I'd thought the same thing. It might take a while to get an answer, but I'll let you know what I find out.

Cecelia 'Celia' True
Hi Wendi ~ I'm a volunteer contributor like you, and I believe we may have duplicate memorials for Cecelia True. A member noticed it and contacted me. Mine is #157377738 in Logan Park, Sioux City. She is in the 'Potter's Field' area, so has no marker; mine has an interment date of Feb 13, 1946, 4 days after your date. I looked for public records, & 1930/1940 censuses have her at the Poor Farm, so a county (free) burial makes sense. The 'Ivan Winter funeral home' in your obit is the name of the Poor Farm that was here. I work at the cemetery, and double checked our records but didn't find any further info. Do you know if there is a marker in the Anthon cemetery? Or if yours maybe has a family plot? This could be an interesting challenge ~ let me know what you think!

David Hough- Pleasant Valley cemetery
Hello, I would be interested in taking over the memorial for David G. Hough, #35855708. This is my great grandmother's first husband who died tragically in a boiler accident. Thank- you, Carrie

RE: Anderson Babies
Hi. Thanks for your quick response. Claud and Donald are listed in the same plot and one has an obit/death notice. I thought that they could have been twins who died at birth, but the obit indicated one infant stillborn not twins. I will let you know if I come up with anything more.

Viola (Olive) Cobb Conklin
Was wondering perhaps if you have a copy of deed from Correctionville records that lists that Viola was buried in Correctionville, Iowa Cemetary? She is my great grandmother and we have never been able to find the location of her burial. My assumption she is buried in the plot with Cornelius Conklin her husband, but have no proof. Perhaps the deed would show the plot?

The last note was the note that Amy left with the VVMF whom I volunteer for.

You can thank Amy Morris,
I found this photo while digging through my Grandparent's old photos while tracking down my ancestors. Written on the back of this photo to my Grandfather Allen, 'Love from me to Jack, Pat, and Rusty. Here is the picture you wanted of me in my uniform...and I do not forget. Ha-Ha.'

RE: edward erickson
My source was the book "Self Portrait of Marshall County" (1976), page 407, column 2, under Carl and Henrietta (Erickson) Knutson. This was submitted by the grandchildren of Edward. Also, the 1910, 1920, 1930 and 1940 census all say "abt 1877".

RE: Edits updated
Hello Wendy, how nice to hear from someone else that is interested in local family history.

I am from the Middle River/Gatzke area. But I live in West Fargo. I have done worked on genealogy for many years, and I also misc local history. I have saved obits (of people, or families I know from this area) since the late 60's.

I am not related to the Thompsons, but some were family neighbors.

My family (Knutson's) were early settlers of that area. (They homesteaded in the Thief Lake and Moose River area of Marshall County.)

Are you from thie area? Your name sounds Finnish. I see you have done lots of work on Find A Grave.

I am certainly willing to help you if I can.

Contact me thru e-mail.

Hope I hear from you again.

Thanks Kathy

Coon - Hickory County, MO
Hi there.

In the memorial 8684494,your bio for Marinda Coon Pitts states:

Marinda was the daughter of George Washington Coon and Mary Burket North. She married William A. Pitts on March 13, 1853.

Five children born from this union: Dee, Adelphia, Robert Virgil, Mary Ellen, and Henrietta.

It was my understanding that Marinda was the daughter of William Coon and Margaret Jourdan.

Do you hopefully have any doc that can resolve this one way or the other? Thanks!
