Hi HeadHunter:

The above are buried in Oakland Cemetery, Hutchinson, McLeod County, Minnesota Section Jensen block 01 lot 005 S 1/2 Foss Allen grave 1 and Gladys Bowen Allen in grave 2.

Could I please use your photos of their monuments for my tree on Ancestry and for my personal data base?

Thanks for the works you do.

You took a picture of this stone. The stone says she was the wife of Carl Bonke. Do you know/remember if he is buried near her? They are my great great grandparents!

RE: Request
I really like the two-flag photo that you use. Where did you get that? I DO NOT find the one particular flag insulting, because I belong to the Sons of Confederate Veterans. IMHO, there are way too many vocal people who are abysmally ignorant of history. LeRoy.

Good evening. If possible, could you please remove two photos from Find A Grave Memorial# 117146986. This is my GGF Gottlieb Kresien. I was in MN in June and visited the Buffalo Lake Lutheran Cemetery and I took several good images of the inscription on the marker. First I used a brush to clean out bunch of lichen growth. So I have a pretty decent single photo to add to the Memorial, and the two close-up photos you posted are not necessary now. I can use the photo space for other photos. Thanks. LeRoy.

RE: Good evening
Good evening: OK, when I get the time, and when I am healthy again, I need to first tackle the problem with my grandfather. You have him on Memorial #98470892, and you used the name that is engraved on the grave marker -- Kresien. So that is a good thing, to have him tied to one solid surname. You did good. Back in 2012 I created Memorial #84235434 for grandfather, based on the spelling of his name on a funeral card -- Krsiaen. When I grew up I never knew how to spell the surname, as used by him. That is because he spelled as he wanted to, on any given day. It sounds crazy, but there it is. If you log on to the Memorial I created for him you will see the funeral card, and under the category "Children" you will see that 1st son Amos and 2nd son Clarence spelled the name differently than each other, and different than the "Kresien" on the grave marker. In addition, my father, Virgil, and his younger brother, Willard, spelled the name differently than their two elder brothers. You will also see the "Note" that I wrote trying to explain the pitfalls for anyone attempting to research any of the "Kresin" clan. It is a terrible mess. It makes my head hurt thinking about how to make this understandable to anyone coming after me who tries to research this subject. His real first name was not even Charles, it was Gerhardt.
I realize that the Memorial I created predates the one that you created. However, I prefer that you do not delete the Memorial you created, at this time. I know that we have two different Memorials for the same person, but the variation in name spelling is significant. I am thinking my way through how to go about straightening out this mess.
Regarding the photo I posted on the Memorial that I created. That is my grandfather holding the goose. My father, Virgil is at extreme left with the huge rabbit. Beside my father is oldest son Amos, and beside him is 2nd son Clarence. It is quite a photo.

Good evening
Good evening: In the past you were kind enough to create some Memorials and post photographs of grave markers associated with my people. This evening I have sent several minor corrections to you. Martha A. Lohrenz (Kohls) #95873460 was my grandmother's sister. My grandmother, Agnes Kresien #98470893 died in 1936 and I never met her, as I was born in 1944. I sent a small correction to you about "William" Kohls #95873417. His name actually was Wilhelm, as shown on the grave marker, but we all knew him as "Uncle Bill". This Wilhelm Kohls was a brother to Martha A. Lohrenz (Kohls). (He had a farm near Cedar Mills and that is where he died in 1948. I was 4 years old at the time and attended his funeral.)
In June of this year (2015) I was in Minnesota for a wedding. I happened to stop around at a number of cemeteries looking up deceased family members located in Waconia, Cedar Mills, Buffalo Lake, and Hutchinson. I managed to get some good research completed. I am looking forward to tackling the 200 pound gorilla in my "Krsiean" family's closet. As you know, there are a multitude of spellings of the family name, some of which are Krsiean, Krasean, Kresien, Kresin, Kressian, Kresan, Krasen and so on, including some spellings that begin with the letter "C". (Sigh) This is a major untangling project.
So, if you receive any more corrections, etc from me, you know what is going on here in Prescott, Arizona. Cheers, LeRoy Krsiean.

There are two Halvor Halvorson's in Palmyra American Lutheran Cemetery. I've added a photo of the headstone for Halvor O. Halvorson. He is my relative.
