Bio Photo In fourth grade, many,many years ago, I became involved with this wonderful hobby. Thank you for having this website!
Cemetery: euphemism coined by the early Christian writers. It is a Greek word for dormitory, a place to sleep.
"...passing down memories is the strongest link in the gossamer bridge that binds us as people."
David Baldacci.
"The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living." Marcus Tullius Cicero.
In eternal honor of our ancestors
Who left behind so much,
Who started here with so little,
That we might have everything.
Pax Christi.
Genealogy is the warp on which the fabric of history is woven. It is the most immediate, personal kind of history, and for many the most satisfying kind,rooted in the pervasive values of family and heritage. It is an essential part of the one great task each of us is called upon to undertake----the exploration of who we are.
From the Vesterheim Genealogical Center and Naeseth Library literature. Madison, Wisconsin.
A woman was trying to impress her friends at a party one afternoon. "My family's ancestry is very old." she said. "It dates back to the days of King John of England." Then turning to a woman sitting nearby, she said condescendingly, "How old is your family, my dear?"
"Well," replied the woman with a smile. "I can't really say. all of our family records were lost in the Flood."
They, who blazed the trail and broke the Virgin soil,
Ne'er garnered half the harvest of their toil;
To-day, wher'er they sowed, others reap
To them is sleep."
their brave deeds and, alas, too often their very names are forgotten.
""High fortune may be tossed away,
Nor health nor skill my long endure,
Only the name I bear is sure,
And since from it I cannot hide,
Lord, let me hold my name in pride."

Mettome and Overby, Tramway Cemetery, Dunn County, Wisconsin

I'm sorry, there isn't much information on the Mettome marker. That is the only stone there was. I looked for Overbys, but their marker hasn't been erected yet.

Thanks, -Dave

Your Welcome. Have a question for you. There is a stone right next to Ben's that looks identical to his, but is in worse condition and much harder to read. It belongs to Alton Daniel Collins, 1864 - 1941. Would you know if these two families are somehow related?

Arthur Edwin Hawkinson & sister Karoline J
children of Andrew Hawkinson from Menomonie - thank you for the input :) I do know about these children; however, I haven't been able to find their final resting places yet. Arthur died 1972 in West Fargo, North Dakota; wife was Mae Rose Stiles. Karoline (Carrie) Josephine died 1919 in Wright County, Minnesota. She married twice, first to Albert Campbell; second to Oluf (Ole) Erickson.
Thanks for all your work on FindAGrave!

RE: William H.East
no. He was living in Wisconsin when he died. The obit I posted was from a Linn Co., Mo. newspaper because he had once lived there.
I have found his name on the Wisconsin Death index. Also his son, died the following year but in Madison, Wisc. Haven't looked for his grave yet.

Henry Larson
I was viewing Anton Larson's memorial as that was my grandfather's sibling, It says his son Henry is buried @ Halvorson's cemetery. Anton & Christina's son Henry is buried @ Crystal Lake Cemetery in Minneapolis, Minnesota. His wife was
Clara Olson Larson who died in 1985, Henry died 25 April, 1971. He lived in Minneapolis and worked for the railroad. I remember him well.
