RE: Mary (Fasching) Sherman
Thanks for asking if I would like to manage the Sherman/Schermann memorials. I was going in to post photo's I took this week and ended up editing the information on some memorials. If I should need any in the future, I will sure ask.

Emily Johnson Sundeen Manning
Thanks for the info on Emily and Ludvig's marriage in St Louis county. I had not yet found the exact date but knew it was about then.

The MN Official Marriage System had Emily and James's marriage:

I was not researching James Manning, I didn't know about his first wife.

Emily and Ludvig's son died in the Philippines, body never recovered, but there is a memorial for him in Missouri. I've submitted an edit to link him to his mother.

The 1910 census lists Emily as widowed, living with her parents and son in Meeker. At this time, I don't know where or when her husband died.

Dear MN Headhunter,

In 2013 you left me this message:

Karina (Jepson) under Christensen
I'm thinking you're onto something since the records are blank - do you know if she was widowed for long and his name?

Would you mind making a photo request and adding the name JEPSON to it. That will remind to double check for the stone and check the records in different ways to see if she is a Jepson/Jeppson and just buried in the Christensen plot.

Thanks so much for getting back to me! I've added the information and linked Katie Thea to her parents - it makes Oakland come alive. Visit often and feel free to 'edit' me additions/corrects in the memorials.

I transfer to families, too.

This is her information: Burial:
Oakland Cemetery
McLeod County
Minnesota, USA
Plot: Section A Sub Block 38 Lot 015 Grave 4

Find A Grave Memorial# 97407156

I believe she was the MOTHER of Karen Jeppson Christensen, wife of Ole Christensen, all buried in the same plot. She was listed with them in the 1895 MN census as Katrina Jepson age 88. I have no other info regarding a husband or anything except she was born in Denmark. Thank you so much for all your hard work. I dont know how you get it all done!

RE: Allen Curry 129954192
I wasn't able to find any more about the birth/death of the infant, other than the fact that they are buried in that cemetery.

I am positive that Allen's last name is Curry so you may want to remove the note on his memorial about his last name.

Hans P & Nellie J Mortenson
ear Fellow Graver,
My name is Alan Wenger (contributor # 47580343). I have some updates on a couple of memorials that you are caretaker of. Hans P. Mortenson (95873527) and Nellie Jane Mortenson (95873528) were husband and wife. Her maiden name was Tanner. He was born May 23, 1861. She was born January 27, 1862. They were married May 2, 1887. Her parents are Benjamin Franklin Tanner (9280468) and Harriet Martha Oakes Tanner (9280480). The Tanners were my great-great grandparents. Lydia I Tanner McLeod was my great grandmother (Nellie’s sister). I am trying to get this whole family linked up.
There were 7 Tanner children: Cora L., Nellie J. [Mortenson], Ella G.[Marshal], Sylvester B., Clarrie B.[Danielson] & Carrie B.[Lacy] (twins) and Lydia I.[McLeod]. I have located all but one of the twins on Find A Grave and am also contacting the caretakers of those to try and complete the chain.
My sources are: William Tanner Sr. of South Kingstown, Rhode Island and his Descendants by Rev. George C. Tanner, D.D. c. 1910 Northfield Press, Northfield, MN; A Guide to the Descendants of William Tanner Sr. of Kingstown, RI, Volume III by Terri J. Mc Sweeney c. 2002, Vero Beach Florida; 1880 Federal Census for Graham Lakes Township, MN; Minnesota Territorial Census 1885 for Graham Lakes Township, MN; Pension records for Benjamin F. Tanner, Co. K, 9th Regiment, Minnesota Infantry Volunteers; death certificate for Benjamin F. Tanner, Clinton Co. IA.
I hope you will accept my request for an update on these memorials. If you wish, you can transfer these 2 to my care…if not, the updates will be fine. You are doing great work and I hope you can continue. Thank you.
