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!
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?
Arlin Jensen 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.
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.
