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 so please contact me if you think I've made a typo, want to add more information or just 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). Can't wait to start on the next cemetery!

I started doing my family genealogy in 2008 and I'm so hooked. The thrill of going through history through my ancestor's eyes is amazing. I currently live in Japan and can't thank every enough for helping me find family. Finding the graves is often the only picture we have left of our ancestors. I can't wait until I return to America and can visit our hometown cemetery and repay the kindness many have already shown.

Thank you to my many friends on findagrave for their concern for me and my family since the March 11 earthquake. I was really touched by your kindness.

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!

RE: Rankin cemetery correcion
Thanks...that cemetery is a mess...many of the gravestones are the massive stones from the early 1910-1930's and its so wet there most have tipped over....looks like they had a loader tractor in there and just made it worse.

RE: Coon Obituary
Hi, Wendi if you are interested in other obituaries for the Coon family you might want to check out the Taylor County, Iowa gen web site where I and others have posted many obituaries for this family. Feel free to use them on memorials or for your family research. Please cite the source (name of newspaper, date, etc.) when copying. I and the other volunteers for this web site request only that the transcriptions not be sold for commercial purposes. Here is the link: Best wishes, Julia Johnson
