|Bio and Links|
|Right now I am involved with a project in conjunction with the Sauk Centre Historical Society and the Shad-Patton Funeral Home to try to map and gather information on all the people in Oakland Cemetery, east of Sauk Centre, Stearns County, Minnesota.|
The oldest burial is of soldiers killed in the Sioux Uprising in 1863, but those were probably moved from the now-defunct Greenvale Cemetery that was shut down in 1874, the year Oakland was platted. At one point it was under the direction of the GAR, but went through a period of neglect and vandalism. In 1980, Louise Parker Pendroy renewed interest in the cemetery and since then it has been maintained.
Most records and many markers have been lost.

I have added the information you gave me along with the links to parents and his wife. Thank you for the information.
I have added him to his parents and added his wife to him with changes to her name. Thank you for the information.
I have added his parents and his wives. Thank you for the information. I have credited you with providing the information on the memorial. Just so you know, the stones placed are new ones, mostly, because the cemetery has been hit 3 different times and headstones have been found on farms around the area and some simply destroyed. The cemetery commitee is trying to restore what they can.
Carmen, I transferred him to you. I transcribed this cemetery (and several more)as a service to others in the late 90's. I'm over 80, so trying to transfer as many as possible.

I am not related to this specific line of Bloods but have been doing a one-name study for Blood.
I collect all information for Blood families and any spouses and children of female children.
Looking up Ephraim Blood (1764-1847) in my database I show that I have a record of 470 descendants (including spouses)!
I am not looking to be the owner of more Find A Grave memorials but feel free to contact me with regards to your research on the Bloods.

I have added your photos. If there is anything else you want added, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org .

Thank you, Carmen, for entering the Van Valkenberg children on Find-A-Grave. Would you have any idea if there was a plague of some sort in Stearns County in late Feb- early March 1872? These children died less than a week apart. Just curious=
