I may commune with dead people but I am not a mind reader. If you would like a memorial transferred to you please ask, in most cases I will be happy to oblige.
Headstone photos I have taken are free for personal use as they lend proof to a final resting place. My permission is not necessary. To enlarge the photo and see the caption which may include burial information click once on the photo.

Robin: For years I've been searching for the grave of my grandfather. Recently I was able to locate the cemetery and now you have completed my wish. Big thank you for your efforts...I hope you're rich in Karma and good wishes/luck.
Thank you for the fine photos of Louis and Lissette Spetnagel's headstone. I do appreciate you time and effort. It allowed me to correct the spelling of her name.

Thank you for taking the time to document and photograph Neva's burial location even though there was no headstone.

Yes, that is the connection. Harriet is another mystery, having disappeared after 1880, but Frank grew to adulthood, never married, and lived in Martin County, Minnesota, and is actually buried next to Charley & Hattie Perry in Lakeside Cemetery in Fairmont, MN. He died in 1935 so outlived all of his siblings. Of Caleb & Mary Ellen's children, Johnnie died in 1872, Kate in 1893, my Great Grandpa Charley in 1916, and Eugene in 1930. One of Mary Ellen Gould's brothers ended up in Martin County, MN, the other in California. Etta's father's first name was Spencer.

|Dale Eileen||RE: Etta Dean|
There is a relationship in a couple of ways to Etta Dean, primarily her younger half-brother Charley Perry was my great grandfather. Her first husband, Sylvanus Schoolcraft, was my great grandmother Hattie Grant Perry's cousin. (Charley & Hattie married in 1889.) Hattie's Mom, Martha, and Sylvanus' Mom, Harriett, were sisters. (Bemis was their family name.) Anyway, Etta was born in Wisconsin, the Beaver Dam area I think, in August 1857. Her parents and grandparents, Spencer and Mary Ellen Gould Spencer Perry, and Calvin & Elizabeth Gould had moved to Wisconsin from Maine. Her older sister, Lillian, was born in Maine. Etta and Sylvanus were married in Beaver Dam, WI and had three children, Edna, Laverne & Percy. They divorced around 1898. Edna died in 1911, about age 38, and Laverne's son Lyall died in 1927, so there was certainly some heartache there. Her son Percy and his daughters were living with her at various times, so I'm guessing she was instrumental in their upbringing. She's always been a mystery to me especially since I couldn't find her after 1930 Census, so I was relieved to find her on Find-A-Grave 4 days after her gravestone was posted! I've been curious about family interactions/dynamics as her mother, Mary Ellen, spent her final years with Charley's older brother Eugene, No judgments, just curiosity, wanting to understand. I don't know what happened to Lillian, have hoped she had a happy and productive life. Oh, I think Etta married George Dean in 1903. Those are the highlights as I understand them. Many Thank! Dale

I HAVE CONTACTED THE CREATOR OF THE OTHER PRICILLA. HE IS NOT A RELATIVE.
I HAVE ALSO CONTACTED THE CREATOR OF HER FIRST HUSBAND TO CONNECT HER TO HIM AND HER CHILDREN BY HIM.
HER FIRST HUSBAND DIED BEFORE SHE MARRIED WILLIAM PIERCE.
I HOPE IS DOESN'T CREATE A PROBLEM.
TIME WILL TELL. I DON'T KNOW WHY IT SHOULD.
THANKS FOR THE TRANSFER.
I AM TRYING TO CONNECT HER WITH HER FIRST HUSBAND.
THEY HAD 6 CHILDREN TOGETHER.
