PLEASE use the "EDIT" tab in the upper right corner of the Memorial for all corrections, additions and transfers.

I'll consider a transfer of memorials outside of Find A Grave guidelines, especially if you tell me you're related or a friend.
Find A Grave does support many alternative dispositions to traditional burial. Final disposition must be determined and updated within 30 days.

Before adding a memorial, search the cemetery. If you're adding a memorial for someone who does not have a physical grave indicated or memorial marker in a cemetery (perhaps their cremains were scattered), please do a general search on Find A Grave (use no location).

RE: Larry Harrison
Hi Bob,

I have tried to contact "Meri", the other memorial and had no response. I did see the headstone photo Meri posted as well. Not sure what cemetery that is in - likely in the Osakis area, just not called Osakis Cemetery. Meri looks to be the one who actually created "Osakis Cemetery" by posting the first memorial there.

I also work with the Douglas County Historical Society one day a week so I will check through their obituaries and other records to see what information I can find on her Mrs. (Vit) White -- and on Mr. Harrison's. (I'm there on Thursdays.)

I did contact the funeral home wondering about Mr. Harrison's place of burial. Their records indicated no burial at the time of the obituary and that the family was handling the cremated remains. It just seems like the paper misinterpreted the information given. Perhaps the cremains have not yet been buried. (I'm hesitant to contact the family on this!)

The only thing I can tell you for sure is that there no Osakis Cemetery in Douglas County, so the memorial is incorrect.

At this time can you change the burial location to Unknown? I'm just a volunteer like you are and once a cemetery that does not exist is created, it is very difficult to remove it. Once the (2) memorials are put in the right place (or marked unknown) findagrave management can remove the cemetery.

I will keep you posted on what I find - or do not find.

Best to you and thanks for all you do.

Current Find a grave information:

Osakis Cemetery
Douglas County
Minnesota, USA

Record added: Apr 23, 2014
Find A Grave Memorial# 128403933


I cannot find the Osakis Cemetery in either Douglas County or Todd County. When I contacted the funeral home for a burial location, they referred me to family as the family was taking care of the cremains.

Can you tell me anything more on this burial? Should the burial information perhaps be "burial location unknown at this time" or "Other (Ashes scattered, Body donated, Body lost, etc.)"?

Just trying to get the memorial for Mr. Harrison right. My records of Douglas County Cemeteries do not include an Osakis Cemetery.

Best regards,

Douglas County Cemetery Association

Yes I saw that but I wasn't sure if you could remove it since you created the memorial. I wrote him too, Thank you.

RE: Minnie St. John
Whatever you want to do. I just thought that since hers was more complete with photos and links and plot information perhaps that one should remain to make it more helpful for researchers. If you want to keep yours that's fine.

I have finished going through all of the memorials that had no gravestone photos.Hopefully you won't need to hear from me again.

Thank you for being so helpful with all the edits I sent.

Bob, I am trying to figure out the Scherer family in Highland. Seems there is a Christian Scherer who married a Elizabeth Werkle. The confusing part is they had a son Christian and a daughter Elizabeth. So, I will try and sort them out by years.
