|Bio and Links|
I have been interested in genealogy for over 30 years. I had a great aunt who did our family research in the 1940's to 1970's. She got me interested and the rest is history. I would be happy to transfer management to family members. I also would be happy to add any information if it can be documented. I will share photos of family ancestors I may have, just email me so we can get acquainted. Happy hunting.|

|khops||RE: Meilicke (Winona)|
No problem at all. I will see if I can find it again and take a new picture, along with deciphering what is on the stone for names and dates. Perhaps the Historical Society missed some information when they took the inventory for "Resting Places of Winona County."

You added a record for Charles Meilicke (Memorial #143591660) on 3/10/2015, submitted a photo request the same day, then uploaded a photo of the headstone on 3/15/2015. The photo request is still there - is there something specific you are looking for?
I see you also have a photo request for Lina Meilicke (Memorial #143591778). She is not listed in "Resting Places of Winona County" which means when the Historical Society inventory of gravestones in the county was taken there was not one listed for Lina Meilicke.

The reason I couldn't find the plot before was because the plots in that section of Arbutus aren't labeled on the cemetery map. It almost looks like water marks around the inscription but it's not. Not sure what it is. There's a little moss in the inscription though. Maybe there was more moss before and the cemetery worker cleaned it off. Good luck sorting out the relationship.

|Karen||RE: Passmores & Fannie Leland|
No luck with Esther Passmore's stone…..again, empty spaces where she's probably buried, but no stone. There is no 331 ARBTS plot……the numbers don't go that low in that section. I did find plot 331 on the map in the Nettle section (which is very close to 620 Beech where Justin Passmore is buried) but didn't see a headstone for her. But with a 1941 death date, it seems like there should be a stone. I'll have to check the area again to see if I was even in the right spot. That cemetery still confuses me a little….even with cemetery and plot maps.

Hi Carol…..my husband and I stopped Sunday to check for buried stones near Justin, Grace, and Hannah and we came up empty. The only thing we found were a couple small pieces of buried stone that might have been part of a base. Nothing else was there. It's a very well kept cemetery and I've yet to see any broken stones lying around or bases with no marker. My guess is if a stone breaks and they can't repair it, they remove it completely. I'll be going back this week and will look for your other two ancestors.

I could ask my husband if that's something he could help me with. According to the transcribed list that's online, your ancestors should be in that section……but those records aren't always accurate. I already found a couple mistakes. I'll post Hannah's headstone pic. I didn't before because the first pic didn't come out very well…..the stone is shiny and the area is also totally shady. The second pic isn't really great but it's probably the best I can do. When I'm at the cemetery again, I'll try to find your other two ancestors.

I have sent you an auto correction for the date of birth and insertion of her gravestone inscription. In North America prior to 1752, in the English calendar then used (Julian) the 5th month was July, not April as currently reflected by this memorial. Further, please correct the first line of the bio. The family surname was Prickitt, not Prickett. This message is being repeated via the SAC edit function.
|Karen||RE: Rachael Parks|
I was at the cemetery in the afternoon and Rachel's gravesite was rather shaded. Not sure it gets any morning sun but the next time I'm at the cemetery in that area, I'll check it in case I can get a better shot.

You're very welcome. Glad to be able to provide photos for everyone.
