James E. Brawner Thank you so much for the reply. It really had me thinking last night so I did some research and sure enough, there she was. No one in my family had any idea. James was my great grandfather. How very sad that Valley and Hazel both died shortly after child birth. Do you know the cause of Hazels death by chance?
James Edward Brawner I'm sorry. I read the dates incorrectly. It does not state he was married at 10. Whoops. But I don't ever recall hearing about a Hazel, which I would appreciate more information on. Thanks again.
James Edward Brawner Good evening, I came across my great grandfather, who was James Edward Brawner, and I noticed you have him married at 10 years old to a Hazel. As far as I know, he was never married at 10, and never married to a Hazel. The only wives he ever had were Valderesy Weimer and Eva. Can you please confirm where the information on Hazel came from? Thank you so much!
RE: Lars Larson stone Sorry a bit of travelling has me off my corespondence a bit. Back to Lars. I am intreged. Did he have a wife or is that also unknown? Do we know he ended up in southern MN? Are we positive of the 1869 and do we believe the marker always gets labeled correctly? I would suggest a look into Dalbydata.com it is getting very good at filling up with valuable data. Lars Larson resting at Lake Edward Cemetery in Crow Wing Co. MN 1969-1952 with Elizabeth 1879-1924. there is quite a list of Lars' in the later part of 1800's listed. With a ton of other clues listed. It is all Mn and mostly Southern MN data. Worth a look if you hadn't been there. This data base was filled in primarily from walking and recording cemeteries so it's marker data driven. If you find one that looks like further looking is worth it go back to the search page and in the lower left is a cemetery look up to give you a good way to come back to find a grave or other county resources.
RE: Lars Larson stone Your very welcome. The Father was visible the mother could barely be seen and dug out. Then based on spacing I found that particular Lars completely buried in mud. If those other two help at all. The father would be Hans 1833 - 1919 and the mother was Inga 1843 - 1923. All three were in a row and of the same type. Side by side by side.
RE: Loughridge headstones Family members are more than welcome to use my pictures - and unlike most of the other Find A Grave contributors I do NOT need you to give me credit. After all, they are your relatives. Enjoy.
