John H. Bailey headstone
Thank you for making photos of my cousin John H. Bailey and his wife headstone. When I save and then try to insert them in a book I am writing, they are stretched way out. Can't make out name on either marker. His WWII or the other. What can be done about that?

Harry George Webber's marker
I wanted to thank you very much for the wonderful picture you left for my great-uncle.

I did not know anything about him until the past few years. This experience in my family is a pinnacle moment for some of the bitterness that my grandfather and his brothers felt towards life. The location was unknown until just a few weeks ago by our family. So I found the place of burial and you have provided a wonderful picture of burial location.

thank you very much.

Peter Levi Corbin, Glencoe/Sloan
Hi Brian,

...oh my goodness! THANK YOU, Brian, so much for looking up this paper! My heart is touched. You are such a kind, generous man. Thanks so much for sharing with me. I will have to tell my mom. :-)

re: Hi Debbie, I found this. Please add to his bio. Brian

In Memory of Peter Corbin.

Peter Levi Corbin (son of Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Corbin, of Burr Oak district, this county), who died on Thursday, Jan. 30, was born at Corydon, Wayne county, Iowa, on Aug 12, 1858, and was therefore in the thirty-eighth year of his age at the time of his death. The remains were consigned to the grave on Friday, Jan. 31, in Glencoe church-yard, the funeral services being conducted by the Rev. I. G. Smith.

Deceased came to the then territory of Dakota in 1883. His father and mother, two sisters and three brothers – all living in this state – survive him. His sisters are Mrs. M. L. Burtts and Mrs. Annie J. Smith, and his brothers are George Benjamin, James Albert and Charles Isaiah.

Deceased was a patient sufferer during his long illness. He had been staying with his sister and her husband, Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Burtts, but he went home eleven days before his death. He was able to sit up most of the time, taking to his bed occasionally for an hour or so. The night before he died he sat up, talking and joking, until about 10 o’clock, when he retired. About 4 the next morning he awoke, called his mother, told her that he was bleeding at the lungs, and asked for some salt. He took it, got up, walked to the stove, sat down, and death came in a few minutes.

Mr. Corbin was an honest, kindhearted, inoffensive man, and had no enemies. He knew that there was no chance for his recovery. The final attack seemingly brought him no greater pain than he had suffered for three long years, and the summons that called him to that better land where the weary are at rest must have been welcomed by him as a relief.



Comrade Streeter: Please publish for us in your paper our hearty gratitude for the many kindnesses of our friends and neighbors who assisted us in every way at the time of the death and at the funeral of our son and brother, and particularly to the Rev. I. G. Smith for his kind words at the funeral. Respectfully, BENJAMIN CORBIN AND FAMILY.

Sorry to say I do not have anymore info on your family. My aunt Ellen Voigt recently passed away and as family historian I received a bunch of photos and funeral cards. Our family has no connection to Gertrud Nickolaus that I can find so I posted it here. If you would like the original send me your mailing address and I will send it to you.
