Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started on my family tree in 6th grade (1972) when I wrote a report about my ancestors who settled in Minnesota, and have been fascinated with genealogy ever since. During college, I spent my spring breaks and summer months visiting cemeteries, courthouses and genealogy libraries while my contemporaries were no doubt up to other things. Find-a-Grave has blossomed into a wonderful resource, though I hope eventually individuals can be linked with "Family Tree" profiles at Family Search.

My grandparents:
Albert Lee Volk
Della Margaret Henrietta Buelow Volk
Henry "Warren" Denison
Frances "Evelyn" Thornson Denison

My wife Ruth's parents:
Lavere Burchett
Marjorie Ruth Morris Burchett

Charles Volk (1871-1880)
Not sure if you're aware, but there is a Volk (son of William and Margaret Wollam) with these same birth/death dates buried at Marysburg (per church records). He died of diphtheria at 8 yrs/ 3 months and is buried at the south end of the cemetery, but the exact spot has been lost. Happy hunting, Scott R

William Osborn
I was presently surprised to find he has a stone. I photographed it and added it to his memorial.

RE: Frances Osborn
William's should be easy to find if it is marked. I'll check today or tomorrow.

I did some research and she is not buried next to here husband. William is in a section of people who's burial was paid for by the county. Here is the information on the people buried in each side of him. I hope the formatting holds together.
Blk-20A Rw-A Gr-10 19460111 Lopez, Antonio 19460109 1878????
Blk-20A Rw-A Gr-11 19460107 Osborn, William 19450105 18650817
Blk-20A Rw-A Gr-12 19451228 Antillon, Enrique 19451227 19010317

After the location the first# is the interment date, and then the name, the death date and the birth date. Their is no next of kin listed in the spread sheet for William

Frances Osborn
I talked with the cemetery Manager Dave Stewart Thursday and the Woodland Cemetery has no record of Frances. That is why I reported it as a problem. I'll let someone else claim it this time and go ask Dave again.

If Frances was Catholic, she may be in St. Joseph's Cemetery which adjoins the Woodland Cemetery.

Thanks so much for the heads up! Once I checked my records, there it was! I had named the wrong cemetery. I have removed my memorial.
Thanks again,

RE: Thanks for the photo of Earnest Clark
Couldn't believe it! I went to the edge of 28 and looked down. They had done the whole row some time during this awful weather. Amazing because it looked like they had tucked the whole row in for the winter! I'm very glad to have helped, Greg!
