Royal Oaks Dairy
Hi Mark,
My wife and I are now the new owners of the Royal Oaks Dairy farmhouse. If you have a chance can you reply to my email please? I am interested in any history you can share about the farmhouse and the area. We have restored it to as much of the original condition as possible.
Best Wishes,
Jens Riege

Hi there, you added a photo to the memorial for Arthur Vournas; would you be able to add it to Edna Vournas (35250369) as well?

RE: Seeking information
Hi Mark,

That's really interesting..because I think Claus and Anne may be my great great grandparents as well. I know my great great grandmother as Anna Christine Mortensen (maiden name) so that's the only thing here leading me to believe they may not be the same. I don't know the name Hansdatter in any capacity. The birth/death dates also don't match what I have but I assume those are filler dates anyway considering 1955 is the same year that Laust was born.

If you could contact Connie or find the translated document, it would be much appreciated. I may ask some Danes online to see if they could translate it for me as well. Any other information you might have on Claus or Anne(Anna?) would be great!

Seeking information about entries you made
Hi Mark,

I'm writing you to inquire about an entry you made here on Laust Klausen's page

Specifically, the parents you have listed, Claus and Anne. I'm wondering where you got those names from and why they are considered the parents of Laust. I can't read or translate the picture, if that information is in there. Anything you can do to help is appreciated!

RE: "Six Nights In Telergma" crew
Hi, Mark -

My apologies - I just saw your message.

Glad I could help.

Interesting - in all my readings about the 390th, I don't seem to remember your father-in-law. I'll have to do some research on him.

Take care -

RE: Danish graves
I see. I go back home in a couple of days but would like to move back to the Johnson County area on a permanent basis to help my parents they are kind of old now haha. In that event, i want to see about visiting graves of family every year and maybe restoring a couple. the weather has taken its toll on a few of them. Let me know if you have any ideas and you're always free to call me.

Danish Graves
I learned something rather distressing. the graves of our ancestors in Denmark is a crap shoot. the poorer faction there has to either pay to upkeep their graves or cancel them and most elect to "cancel". Whatever that means. I'm of the opinion that they remove the headstone. If I find out anything else about this practice I will let you know. _Connie

Hiram C. Skogmo memorial
Hi, Mark -

I am friends with the niece of Jack Fariss and this is one of my favorite B-17 crews.

You have some of the crew names wrong on the crew photo.

Front left to right is: Irving R. Lifson - Navigator; Hiram C. Skogmo - Pilot; Alvin Jaspers - Co-pilot; Merle M. Cloud -Bombardier.

These names were incorrect in a book, and I can't remember which one, but I assure you that I am correct.

The names of the crew in the back row are correct.

Thank you for your time.

Frederick Burial
I almost want to say that Everyone is buried at the Johnson County Memorial Gardens. My grandfather took me up there when I was a kid to look at the family plot. He also showed me Klaus' grave and Fredericks. I can have my mom check into this if you want. Love Connie

Hanshaw Memorials
Thanks for transferring the memorials. I have updated the family links and deleted the extra memorial for Marilyn.

Thanks again for creating these to begin with. I would have been forever trying to find their graves.

Hanshaw Memorials
Thank you for creating the memorials for Orland (Find A Grave Memorial# 33841792), Mirth(Memorial# 33841936) and their daughter Marilyn(Memorial# 33841833). Auntie Mirth was my Grandmothers sister.

Do you have a family connection to the Hanshaw's? Would it be possible for you to add the family links for these 3 memorials. Orland (spouse and father), Mirth (spouse and mother) and Marilyn (daughter).

I would also like to see links to Mirth's parents Ed Barnett (Memorial# 114074681) and Sarah (Memorial# 114076340).

If you have no family connection and would like to transfer management of these memorials, I would be happy to take over maintenance.

Thanks again,
Richard Bouts

RE: Your grandparent's memorials
I see by your photo that you are flying in something. Are you a pilot? My grandfather built airplanes for a living (he also flew them). I'm an instructor pilot in the Army. Flying is what I love to do. Thanks again for your kind help.

What a surprise!
Thanks for doing this. I was very surprised to see my grandparents grave marker in this database. I recognized it immediately. I live in Alabama and I'm never able to get to California to visit the grave. What a grate surprise for a Sunday.
