After a niece sent me a copy of my father's "Find A Grave" memorial and asked why my mother was not on it, I became a member. Now I am addicted to it.|
Find A Grave is one of the most beneficial websites that I have become aquainted with both for genealogy and for historical preservation.
I will do my best to find the gravestones that are requested and may have to make a few trips so if the first picture is not of great quality, I will put a comment that I plan to redo it.
So far, I have done 3 complete cemeteries and am in the process of checking off names in case anyone is missing. Then I will do a physical search to see if they are unmarked or covered by grass, bushes or trees.
Any memorials will be gladly transfered. The only ones that I wish to keep are family tree members. I am entering people with the information that is on their stones with the hopes that someone will be searching for them. (I am not doing this just to build up numbers and I sure hope that is not anyone else's purpose.) Any corrections will be made as soon as I get notice of them.
Please do not be offended if I add a photo showing that a stone is in danger of being damaged. It is only a way to help save the stones. I am attempting to gather a group of volunteers to remove unwanted bushes and trees that were planted in a cemetery that are getting out of control because families never maintained them after planting them.
As I said, I am new to this and I appreciate all the helpful advice that others have given me.
Good luck searching for your loved ones and God bless.
* Please be patient, I may still fill your requests after the weather gets nicer.

Blanche, thank you so much for the photo of the headstone- and in winter! You must not have as much snow as the rest of the country!

Hi, could you maybe tranfer Rita, Gaylon and Raymond to me? Rita was my grandfather's sister and I have a short biography prepared for each of them.

hi Blanch, you're quite welcome! Happy New Year! Cathy
|Donna Baker||Henry and Anna Christina Mohr|
I would like to thank you so much for the work you are doing on the Find-A-Grave website. Because of you, I found my maternal great grandparent's, Henry and Anna Christina Mohr's graves located in the Mount Hope Cemetery, in Frankfort, SD. Their daughter, my grandmother, Hattie, moved with my grandfather, Charles Linn Gipson and all of their children, including my mother to San Diego in 1941. They were wheat farmers that were pushed out of SD by the Dust Bowl,coupled with the effects of the Great Depression. The other family members stayed in Frankfort, while Charles Linn and Hattie joined his parents and grandparents in San Diego.
Henry (Heinrich) and Anna Christina were German immigrants, that arrived in America in 1886. They traveled on the ship USS EMS, from Bremen Germany to New York Harbor. They were processed through the New York Port Authority because Ellis Island did not exist yet.
By chance, have you run across any graves with the surname Jordan? If so, this family is Charles Linn Gipson's, mother's family. (Margaret Eva Jordan-Gipson)
Thank you again for the excellent work you are doing!
Henry and Anna Christina Mohr descendent,

I grew up in Interior and graduated from there in 1966 and I want you to know all of us kids around there called her Ma. I can still here her hollering and cussing at BD and Larry. I want you to know she was quite the little old lady, and I do miss her.
