What happened to the memorial for Opal? Her Mother is Gladys Opal which was the one in question.
|Karen Winters||Gladys Opal Utter Beam Vanslyke #127615642|
Hello, I am a trustee for Mount Harmony Cemetery Greenwood AR in Sebastian County. My cemetery records show that Gladys Opal is buried next to her 1st husband Martin Asberry Beam. However, her Findagrave memorial shows her buried in Muncie Chapel Cemetery, community Wheaton in Barry Co Missouri? There is no headstone for her at Mt Harmony, but our records says she is buried there. Can you shed some light on this for me? Thanks! Also there is no headstone on Findagrave.

Do you have a Source for the Death Date that you have for Rachel Molly Beeson. This page is being put at the source in everyones tree, However the minutes do not list her death only her removal from the Quaker Rolls. I am trying to find actual sources for this information as not to perpetuate more misinformation. Any assistance you can provide would be appreciated.
|Joan Viney||RE: George Austin King|
I have posted my gravestone photo. However, you will see that the death date has not yet been inscribed on the stone.
|Joan Viney||George Austin King|
I just photographed the gravestone of George Austin King today in Clay Hill Cemetery, Barry County, Missouri. The gravestone also has the name of his wife, Bonnie Mae, inscribed on it. I could tell it was a recent burial as there was only dirt covering his burial spot---no time for grass to grow there.
Please correct your memorial with the correct cemetery name and I will post my photograph.
|Cindy Menze Gregorius||Frank Morgenroth's family history|
Could you please add this to Frank's bio? Or some of it?
Gustave Morgenroth left Germany and came to America in the early 1860's. He landed at New York City. After spending some time there, he worked his way West.
In Ohio he met and married Katherine Naus. When the Minnesota Territory was opened up for homesteading, Gustave Morgenroth and three other men left Ohio with a team of oxen and supplies and headed for Minnesota in the spring of 1867.
The many pine trees, lakes and rivers in East Otter Tail County reminded him of his homeland. He decided to homestead 160 acres of land in Sec. 30 of Pine Lake Township. This farm still has the original homestead deed.
The men worked all summer putting up log cabins for their families, who were to follow later in the fall with other settlers coming here from Ohio.
Grandmother Morgenroth often told her grandchildren about the welcome the Indians gave them, their first night in her new Minnesota home. Just after dark, a loud whooping and yelling was heard coming from the direction of the Otter Tail River where a band of Indians lived in their teepees. Grandfather looked out of the window and saw about fifty Indians approaching their log cabin. The Indians were all dressed up in their war paint and feathers. He bolted the door, opened up the trap door which was right inside of the door, then took his stand alongside the door and waited. The Indians pow-wowed and danced around the cabin for a while and then suddenly all was quiet and they left. Needless to say, no one slept that night for fear the Indians would return to scalp them. A few days later the Indian Chief came to visit them and made it understood that they were welcoming their white neighbors.
Perham was just a prairie when the Morgenroths settled in Pine Lake Township.
They attended St. Lawrence Catholic Church and did their trading at Rush Lake, until the Village of Perham was established and St. Henry's Church was built there. Perham was closer, being two and one half miles west of their homestead.
Grandfather never cared much for farm work, so as his sons grew up, he left the farm chores up to them and his wife. He liked to hunt and fish. He also did a lot of trapping. He had a big hunting dog that he took with him wherever he went, not only for companionship, but protection as well. There were many wolves and even bear around then. The Indians gave him the name, which meant "White man with big dog."
Gustave Morgenroth was considered a well-educated man for the 1870's. He spoke four languages before coming to America. Here he learned English which he said was the hardest for him to master. In Minnesota he learned to speak the Indian Language of the Chippewa and Dakota Indians.
He was a friend of both tribes and many times was their interpreter when dealing with the Government.
As the settlers children began to grow up. Grandfather Morgenroth saw the need for a school. He took it upon himself to start a little log cabin school at the location of the Lone Pine School, Dist. # 130. Here he taught the children German, English and the three R's. Mrs. Mike Belka, formerly Anna Jezewski, was one of his pupils. She stated many times that he insisted on his pupils coming to school neat and clean and that she liked him as a schoolmaster.
Our mother's favorite story was about a visit Grandma had from an Indian squaw when she was a baby. Mother was born in June and later in the fall, an Indian squaw came to their cabin, opened the door and walked in, going to the cradle in which our mother (the baby) was, uncovered her and began to examine her feet, then covered her and left. Grandma was puzzled. A week or so later, the same squaw returned and repeated the same thing, only this time, she put a little pair of beaded moccasins on the baby's feet. Grandfather had come to the cabin and he asked the squaw what she was doing. She replied that winter was coming, white papoose have moccasins, not get cold feet. He thanked her, she nodded and left. Grandmother said as long as she was a neighbor to the Indians, she never did get used to their coming in unannounced.
Gustave Morgenroth witnessed the fight between the Indian squaws of the two tribes at the east end of Big Pine Lake. This took place on the ice in the middle of winter in front of what is known as Squaw Point.
Eleven children were born to Gustave and Katherine Morgenroth. They were:
Gustave, Jr., he was a painter and plasterer: Mathilda married Max Seyforth and they moved to Canada in the early 1900's;
Frank also went to Canada in 1903 and later moved to Sidney, Montana;
Bill stayed in Perham and he did painting and carpenter work;
Alois was the local miller at the old Globe Mill in Perham for many years,
Guenther farmed in Otto township.
Minnie married Jacob Arendt, and they lived in Frazee for a while and then moved to Aurora, Illinois:
Albert died at age of nine (he fell off a pet mule and injured his head);
Emma married Anton W. Doll and lived on a farm in Rush Lake township and twins who died in infancy.
The original Morgenroth family is all deceased. They had thirty one grandchildren and many great grand children scattered throughout the western half of the United States and Canada.
Gustave Morgenroth died Nov. 4, 1915. Katherine Morgenroth on June 1, 1931.
Our Mother, Emma Morgenroth Doll, died four months later on Oct. 20, 1931.
Our grandfather died before we were born.
It was from the tales our grandmother and mother told us about him that we got to know him.
