Hemming & Beret Stormo
Thank you VERY much for the photos of the graves of the Rev. Hemming Stormo and his wife, Beret. They are my great-great-grandparents and I have been searching for their grave site for some time.

I was recently able to get their death certificates from the Minnesota Historical Society, and fortunately their place of burial was on the certificate. A call to the cemetery produced the exact location, and then I generated the grave photo request.

I very much appreciate your action, as it has filled a significant gap in the understanding of the Norwegian line of my family history.

Again, thank you very much!

RE: Anthony Keller
Leslie,

Found the information for "Anthony" Keller while searching on the LDS site of familysearch.org.
Knew that his real name was Anton, and Americanized to Anthony. Also knew that he married Regina "Rachel" in Germany and had a son, Urban "Albert", before coming to America in 1839 and 1st settling in Cincinnati, Ohio and then moving on to St Anthony, Hennepin, Minnesota.

Found the following marriage record on family search: (all names are "latinized" for the Catholic church, ie: J Anton Keller, Regina Daub, etc)
Name: J. Antonium Keller
Spouse's Name: Reginam Daub
Event Date: 05 Sep 1837
Event Place: Neupotz, Bayern, Germany
Father's Name: Joannis Georgii Keller
Mother's Name: Mariae Evae Schaaf
Spouse's Father's Name: Petri Daub
Spouse's Mother's Name: Catharinae Elisabethae Heid
Indexing Project (Batch) Number: M97647-3 , System Origin: Germany-EASy , GS Film number: 367606 , Reference ID: 13

In doing additional search, found his birth record:
Name: Joannes Adamus Keller (should be Antonium, not Adamus)
Event Date: 1810
Gender: Male
Birth Date: 30 Dec 1810
Birth Year: 1810
Christening Date: 31 Dec 1810
Christening Place: Neupotz, Bayern, Germany
Father's Name: Joanne Georgio Keller
Mother's Name: Maria Eva Schaaf

Also found Urbanus's birth record and more info on the parents of both Anton and Regina. Was also nice to have finally found the correct last name of Regina, as some people have it down as Dahnl (which doesn't even come up in any search of German last names).

Hope this helps some.

Kathleen Bond, 3rd great granddaughter of Anton and Regina.

Thanks
Thank you so much for photographing the grave markers of my 6 relatives in Hillside Cemetery. I live in California and I have been unable to visit Minneapolis for several decades.

Wedding record gives maiden name as Momure. Kathryn's death record gives mother's maiden name as Momme. For Gladys it says Mummy.

Need more coffee! I thought Anna's maiden name was Price. But now see there was a prior marriage to George. Kathryn would be Gladys's older half-sister. So Anna's maiden name is: Momure?

RE: Gladys Zopfi
Thank you for the submission, Leslie. I did find Gladys' father in Forest Hill Cem, in Anoka. Yes, her parents divorced and I'm not sure what happened to her mother, Anna Price Merrill.

I have edited her memorial (142747712).
Her birth date is 22-4-1843. She was baptised the same day in Napierville,Québec.
Her firs name at birth was Adeline but somehow got changed later on. Her familly name is Robert.
