Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a genealogy dabbler, living in Eugene, Oregon, and was amazed and delighted to find so many photos of ancestral markers already in place. I also really appreciate the many volunteers who are helping to fill in the many gaps.

I have uploaded some cemetery data from the Murray County, MN rootsweb site, which lists most of the internments in that county. You might look there for more Murray county burial information.

I'm trying to help fill in some gaps in the records of the Hatcher Family Association, so you'll see quite a few requests for Hatcher information. A large fraction of all the Hatchers in the US are more or less distant relations of mine.

Woops...2 quick questions.
Olive doesn't have a headstone? Was there confirmation from the sexton she's buried there in a certain plot?

Also...Russell's bio says 'father of 8'....& I have 9. Can you tell me which one doesn't belong? Gahh, lol.

RE: James Riddle

I am not related to James but I have been researching this cemetery and through a previous researchers notes which was found through census, birth & death records of Barry County.
I found the Military info by accident when I was searching for another person's info.

I'm not sure where she found out about the grandfathers, but I found some info on them in a Military website.
Do you have any names & dates on them, if so I will double check it for you?.

Mr. Watson, I have a newspaper article re: Aunt Fannie's 90th birthday party and her recollections crossing the plains on her way to California. Would you be interested in having it added to her Find A Grave site? Carol Hines

RE: Re:Riddles and cousins
Not a problem. Knowing your family link and seeing the amount of work you have put into these memorials I can understand. I have a few photos taken at the 50th wedding anniversary for Joe & Matilda Riddle and a large portrait of them. The portrait was matted and framed while mother had it. I haven't made a digital copy of it yet. Too many projects and I don't want to take the frame apart.
Take care,

RE: Riddles and cousins!
I just figured out your connection in the Riddle tree a moment ago. Ethel Riddle Watson appears to be the link. I'd love to see the information and contacts you mentioned. I'll try and send you my e-mail.
