Bio and Links
Bio Photo UPDATE: February 2014 - As stated below, I would appreciate death certificates NOT being posted to any of the memorials I create/manage. To me, and many other members here, death certificates posted as photos clutter up and make a memorial look ugly. Stop and think, please, would you want your death certificate or a loved one's death certificate posted in this manner? I certainly would not. A better way to impart information is to send pertinent information via the "Edit" tab and ask that it be added to the bio area at the memorial. Thank you.

UPDATE: July 2013 - Recently I've been receiving a number of requests containing biographical information, etc. from persons not logged onto Find A Grave. If I cannot contact you via the public message board at Find A Grave for clarification (when needed) and sources, I will not add your information. There's too much room for error otherwise, and it is important to me and all researchers that we strive to make the memorials posted here at Find A Grave as accurate as can be. I ask to be able to contact via the public message board feature because I choose not to make public my email address.

Thank you for visiting my page and for all you do here at Find A Grave. I enjoy this website and have met new friends and distant cousins as a result. Thank you to everyone who has provided photos, links, and other information.

The vast majority of my memorials are relatives. Some close, some distant, others in between.

Please be sure to use the Edit tab, then the Suggest a Correction . . . link when requesting updates, transfers, links to family members, etc. This feature is designed to eliminate frustration on all parts due to misspellings, having to search through multiple memorials, etc. Unlike some, I will not ignore/delete your public message regarding the above without first contacting you, but do require you use the proper avenue.

Find a Grave guidelines stating: "Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren." are, in my view, just that. If you're more closely related than I and have information to add to a memorial, I'll more than likely transfer to you. Be sure to state your exact relation when requesting a transfer.

It would be most appreciated if you would not post obituaries or death certificates as photos on any of my memorials. Also, please note that Find A Grave guidelines state you should not post biographical information via a Virtual Flower. I think it may partly be because the creator/manager of the memorial is not notified when a Virtual Flower is left, and may not run across this vital information for days, months, or even years.

Nancy Lay Murphy #43954673
Anna.....Thank you so much for notifying me of the date misspelling on this Nancy's memorial. She is my g.g.grandmother and I have not had the time as yet to make changes and additions of information to her memorial since it was transferred to me. I appreciate your help, I might not have noticed that.....Jacque

RE: Hannah & Jacob Milsten
Kingo- Landstad & Hope are all in one and whoever started the Kingo Landstad Cemetery did not get the fats straight. Landstad has always been a part of Hope and also known as the Hope Cemetery.
I live up here but have never thought about it until Maureen told me so I dug into it and copied the cemetery plot book so I have the records. St Mary's Catholic cemetery is to the south of it all in one long line so it can confuse people.

As found in the By-Laws for the Hope Lutheran Cemeteries
The Cemeteries operated by the Hope Lutheran Church of Fosston, Minnesota (Landstad Cemetery, Also known as "Hope", Poplar River Cemetery and Brandsvold Cemetery) will be governed by the by-laws.

Kingo is not a part of those two cemeteries so it is separate.

RE: Melvin Thomason
Roy Dean Thomason was Troy Gene Thomason's twin brother, who died soon after birth. Troy is still living.

I will be happy to accept the transfer of Melvin C. Thomason's site to my care. Per your instructions, I will attempt to use the edit tab and send you a message requesting this transfer.

Thanks again

RE: Melvin Thomason
Yes, thank you for asking. Melvin was my first cousin.

His mother, Ava Jenkins Thomason, was my mothers, ( Nonnie Joyce Watts Vick ) half sister. Ava and my mother, had the same mother, Al Vertie Knowles Jenkins Watts.

Of side note, my mother was born on October 25, 1925 and Melvin who was her nephew, was born 5 days later on October 30, 1925. I never knew Melvin, as I was not born until a year after Melvin died in WWII. His brother, Troy Thomason is my cousin and is still living in Wellington, TX. Please let me know if I can assist further.

RE: Oscar Schadt
Thanks for your message! Oscar Schadt was my great uncle (my grandmother was his sister) so it sounds like we are researching and tending to different family trees. Thanks again.

Bethia Brown Culp Memorial# 44661580
Hi Anna,
Her tombstone clearly reads Bethia and her marriage record and the 1860 census also say Bethia. Bertha may have been her nickname or an error, but I think the name carved in stone is more credible.
Best wishes,
