Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got seriously involved in my geneology when my father passed in March 2009. I am still a newbee to all of this but I am trying hard and making many new friends traversing the many avenues of research.

I have many, many ancestors in Mower, Goodhue, and Olmsted Co, Minnesota; & Charleston Co, S.C. As well as the states of Iowa, Ohio, Pennsylvania & Massachusetts but the going is very slow.

Living in Southern California I have to rely on others for much of my information for which I am eternally greatful.

Surnames : Gee, Rupe, Shaw, Leason, Eggleston, Kraft, Wohlers, Hawkins, Fallon, Ryan, Cunningham.

Any transfers of memorials to myself will not be deleted and replaced. That is rude and unseemly to the hard work of the original creator.

Any photo taken and posted by myself is free to use. No need to ask for permission to reuse nor is acknowledgment required in it's reuse. Once anything hits the internet it is out in the world much like our journey thru life and it is just as hard to control. So feel free to enhance your family trees and records with what I have.

Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
So many years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Jeremiah Daly

There are two Jeremiah Daly's buried in the same family plot at Calvary Cemetery in Rochester, MN.

The first Jeremiah has birth/death dates of 1866-1929.
The second Jeremiah A. Daly has birth/death dates of 1891-1963.

Neither of these match the birth/death dates of the Jeremiah Daly you are looking for.

I will go ahead and post all of the pictures of the Daly family members who are buried in section 10 at Calvary cemetery. I'm not sure if its the Jeremiah you are looking for but I'll post the pictures anyway.

RE: Eugene Cronin

There is no writing on the stone for Eugene. I would not have found the stone at all except that the groundskeepers were mowing and trimming at the cemetery so I asked them. They have a book with all the burials and helped me find the stone.

If you look at the picture of the stone for Ellen Daly Cronin(the tall monument with the cross on the top of it. It is posted on her findagrave memorial) you can see the stone for Eugene. It is the farthest stone on the left.

If you would like, I could go back to Calvary and take a picture of the Cronin monument and post that on Eugene's page as well. Please let me know if you would want that done.

RE: velma Herber
Yes, we did get a photo of the plot. I'll get that loaded into her memorial today. You'll see 2 stones on both sides of the photo. Her plot will be between them.

RE: Herber
We're still working on Velma. We've located the area her plot is in, there's a possibility her grave is unmarked. We'll let you know.

RE: Cooper
I have so many family members that are buried too far away for me to visit. I appreciate the aid others have given to me.
I am more than happy to pay this forward!
Thank you for the kind words!

RE: Schoonover
Hi Laura, I didn't do a very good job cleaning up Evelyn Schoonover's stone as I didn't realize from the request for Marcella Schoonover Malone on my Find A Grave printount that they were one in the same!! Would you be willing to submit another photo request for her, and that will trigger me to take care of it next time I am up that way? It's 160 miles from my home, but I appear to be one of very few who fulfill photo requests for this cemetery.

Miland Edward Schoonover
Hi Laura, I checked for a marker yesterday for 'Edward Schoonover' in the Maple Hill Cemetery Hibbing, MN. The cemetery has him listed as 'Edward Schoonover' buried in Plot 2-352-4. There is no marker for him. I did find a marker for an Evelyn and an Edson b1865-d1928 Schoonover. Evelyn's stone reads Mother Evelyn Schoonover. I didn't record her dates unfortunately, but I have photos of both of those stones if you would like.

RE: Kraft's
Next time I get to Austin I am planning to try for a better photo. The sun was so reflective that day, then my batteries died! But for now, there it is.
Merry Christmas. God Bless You.
