Thank you so much, leslie, for taking the time to find Robert's grave and for the nice photo of the area where it is located in Saint Anthony Cemetery. Your time and effort are greatly appreciated!

Thank you!
Thank you for looking for the grave of Barbara Kleifgen. Apparently there is no marker. I appreciate your efforts very much!

RE: Joseph Menard
The several obits say he died 29 July. I think the headstone needs a "9" added.

RE: Maurice Daley
Hello Leslie,

Thanks again for your efforts. Have you tried tracing the letters with your finger, or maybe taking a rubbing with pencil and paper? I have found several references indicating the family came from King's County (now called Offaly), but it seems that the only record of their home town is on that stone.

All the best,

Barbara Kleifgen again
Leslie, you must think I'm crazy. I didn't realize as I was writing that last message about Barbara that YOU created her memorial!! Too late at night for me to be doing this, I guess. :-) Anyway, thanks again for catching the coincidence of dates!

Barbara Kleifgen, St. Mary's, Minneapolis
Hi! I have not researched Barbara, so I don't know why she might be listed in records with the surname Lofgreen. Perhaps it was her married surname. OR, thatLofgreen might be where the family lived in Norway. They might have used it as a surname for some years. It wasn't uncommon for Norwegians to use a farm or other place name and then switch to a patronymic or other name. This is something I just don't know how to answer without doing some more digging. Perhaps the person who made Barbara's memorial knows.
I have requested a photo of the grave to see how it the name is written on it. (I'm assuming Kleifgen, since that's how the memorial is made out.)
Thanks for catching the connection and making the link!

RE: Maurice Daley

Yes, we know the family came from that county. There are several members of the family at St. Anthony. For some reason on this stone the name was spelled Daley rather than Daly. But the stone also makes mention of the parish. If we knew this, we could track down the actual town they came from.

Maurice Daley
Thank you for your wonderful work in recording the interments at St. Anthony Cemetery. Could I trouble you to take another look at the grave of Maurice Daley (section 117, died 1894)? The headstone mentions his home parish in Ireland. It would be of great value to the family if we could learn where he came from. I can see that the stone is eroded, but maybe you'll be able to work it out.
Many thanks,
Dan Madden

RE: John Huard
I apologize if I submitted to you that Huard died in Minneapolis. I intended to submit that he was born there according to the listings of MN soldiers in the Spanish American War. He was also living in Minneapolis when he enlisted on 29 April 1898.
