My interest in genealogy started when I was a teen. I never knew my mother's mother since she'd passed away when I was an infant but she'd led such a fascinating life I kept bugging my mother for more and more information on her. Family from the Azores, born/raised in Hawaii, was going to become a nun then... met my grandfather, they started a dairy in CA... amazing people and I've always looked up to her and all my grandparents! So - she was the start of the interst in family history.
My interests, however, have blossomed since then since then. When I married my wife I took an interst in her family genealogy as well... always something to look up! The never ending search.
The pictures I've posted on Findagrave.com are free for those to use as they would like. If you'd like to drop me a note before using them I'd love to hear from you but it's not necessary.
Thank you for taking a photo of the marker for Telitha Borer, the wife of my 1st cousin 3x removed. May I use a copy of the photo in my ancestry.com family tree? I will give you proper credit in the caption.
RE: Otto Wiedenbeck Yes I live near Baker. You can search on The USGenWeb Project. It will let you search Montana and then Fallon County for info under many headers. Otto's obit was taken from the Baker Sentinel paper on 26 Jan 1917. Mike
Otto Wiedenbeck Rick, I had looked last year for Otto's grave in Bonnievale Cemetery in Baker Mt. I could not find a marker but there is a empty plot (B90-1) so am sure Otto is buried there. Was looking at old obituaries today and found Otto's. He died on the train near Aberdeen SD coming back from Lancaster Wisconsin with wife Mary and small child, headed home to Baker MT. He died on the 21 Jan 1917 and was born 15 June 1880. Church service was held in Baker MT. Hope this helps. Mike
RE: Lucia Kramer Wiedenbeck Hi Rick, Thanks for the contact about Lucia Wiedenbeck. If you will look at who created the memorial you will see that it was created by "Graves." I only posted the cemetery entrance photo, this entrance photo will show up on all of the memorials in this cemetery. Sorry, I do not have more information for your research. Regards, David in Wichita
May I have your permission to use the photo you took of Nelson's marker in my ancestry.com family tree? He is a 1st cousin of mine, although 3x removed. His findagrave memorial number is 63984152. Thanks.
