|Recently I have started tracing my family tree, and in searching for the burial locations for my ancestors my family and I have found a fun and enjoyable hobby. My nine year old daughter views it as a treasure hunt. She even wants her own camera so she can take pictures by herself instead of using/sharing mine. Now as we go through towns she asks if there are any cemeteries that we need to stop at.|
My favorite "treasure" that we have found was by accident. While searching through a rather large cemetery for a distant relative we found my grandfather. He had been killed in a car accident two weeks before my mother was born. I never knew when, how or where he died until I started tracing my family, and no-one was left who could remember where he was buried. At first when I saw the headstone I thought it was my uncle, as he was a junior, but I just kept looking at the date and knew that it wasn't right. Finally it dawned on me who he was.
I hope everyone out there is having just as much fun as we are. Good luck in your treasure hunting.

Thanks for the transfer. In the meantime I was able to find another of his daughters (Inga) on Find A Grave. It's been a good day.
|Mike Everhart||Louis Qualheim|
Thank you for finding and creating the memorial to my great-grandfather Louis Qualheim (121211757). You've really made my day.
He was born in a small coastal village in Norway, the son of Abraham Josephsen and Pernille Monsdt. his original name was Lars Kvalheim. He changed it to Louis Qualheim after immigrating to the U.S. in 1895.
He married Carrie Quammen on Christmas Day in 1898. They were the parents of 6 children, two of which (Imbert and Lillian) are buried in the same cemetery. She must also be there (unmarked grave?)
Her parents (Gro and Tolef) are also buried in the East Side Cemetery
If possible I would appreciate the transfer of the Louis Qualheim memorial.

Are you related to Hattie? Her 2nd husband Frank Henry (Hank) Silkey was a cousin of my great-grandfather. Would you have a picture of her. Hank's granddaughter said that Ethlyn had one at one time, a wedding photo of Hattie and Hank, but it was destroyed.

Do you happen to be related to her? She is my great. great, great grandmother
