Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a genealogist at heart and try very hard to find links for the memorials I create so I am happy to add information and make corrections.

I create memorials to connect families so I am happy to do transfers when the request includes information. HOWEVER I NO LONGER BLINDLY TRANSFER to anyone who sends an edit to me that just says "transfer to me and I will update it." This is not because I don't want to do transfers but because I have done several transfers only to find out later that they were the wrong person and the new "caretaker" is not interested in fixing the mistake.

With that said I love receiving edits and corrections! Especially with the enhancements to the edit feature. It's a big goal, but I have a goal of trying to link every memorial I have created to at least one family member (and more if I can find them) and welcome all the help I can get.

RE: Joseph Bernard Muehl
Hi Mary!

Thanks for linking up my folks! Yes, they are family, but I can't take over their memorials right now. I have a huge laundry list of people to add info on (my parents for starters and many aunts and uncles spread all over the USA)but, once I get that done I would love to do that.I will let you know when I see light at the end of the tunnel.

Joseph Bernard Muehl
Hi Mary!

Thanks so much for everything that you've done!

I was wondering if you could add relationship links for Joseph Bernard Muehl # 123766973 to his father and mother; father, Johann Jacob Joseph Muehl, #89529457 and his mother, Maria Katharina Hoefer Muehl, #89529589. I know you probably have a full plate already, but whenever you have the time I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks again for all the wonderful work that you do....a true labor of love.

RE: Johnson
I have done that entire cemetery, and except for those who are my relatives, I have no reason to keep management of them. If there are any more that you are related to in any way, please let me know.

RE: Bartletts and Drapers
Hi Mary. Thank you for the information. I was just wondering about Vincent and whether he might be an infant son of Ola Belle Bartlett and Llewellyn Draper. They had two daughters Donna D. and Luella Mae who married Zerr brothers George and Stephen.

George & Koart Okken
Hi Mary,
I edited the death dates for George & Koart Okken based on South Dakota Death Index, 1905-1955, pg 557. I am researching the Okkens and believe they are the sons of John G. and Gepkea Okken but do not have enough evidence to lock it down yet.

Bartletts and Drapers
Mary, I've been researching the Bartlett's in SD. I've located the death records of Ola Belle Bartlett Draper and her husband Llewellyn Draper.On the SD death index, I noticed a Vincent Draper who died in Dec 1935. Do you have a record for him? I'm wondering if he was the son of Ola Belle and Llewellyn Draper, and if she perhaps died in childbirth in Aug of 1935, and he was her son who died in Dec 1935.

Obituary for Stella Murphy Fish
I found the following obituary for Stella Fish:
Mrs. Fish Dies in South Dakota
Newton Relatives Leave to Attend Rites of Former Jasper County Woman
MURPHY Mrs. Stella Murphy Fish, about 66, native Jasper county resident, died Saturday evening at Aberdeen, S.D., according to word received by relatives.
Funeral services will be held in Aberdeen Tuesday afternoon and relatives attending form here will be three brothers, Olin and Hugh P. Murphy, both of near Newton, and A. K. Murphy, of Marshalltown; a sister, Hermea Murphy and a nephew, Fred Murphy, both of Newton. A brother, H. C. Murphy, and a sister, Mrs. R. A Wilson, also of Newton, were unable to attend.
Mrs. Fish was born in the Murphy neighborhood southeast of Newton and taught in the rural schools of Jasper county for a number of years.
She married George Fish of Kellogg and they moved to northern Iowa for a few years and then to South Dakota about 30 years ago. Mr. Fish's death occurred there 11 years ago.
Besides the local relatives, Mrs. Fish is survived by three children, Herbert of Aberdeen, Mrs. Lorraine Griffiths of Phillips, S.D. and Lyrivine Fish of Nile ___, Mont.
