godfrey, bernard
I just happened to look at godfrey listed in Bismarck (st Mary's Cemetery). My grandfather is James A, grandmother Roberta (Bertha).

I noticed that you listed Bernard (died at birth in 1952). This is completely news to me so I am interested in the origin of this information.

in researching my family tree I know that James A was very secretive and there were things not openly reported or known. ie my aunt Jordice (Jude) was from a first marriage to a ruth Holmquist, no additonal info known.

thanks for any light you can shed on this

Use of photo
May I use your photo of Charles Erastus Markham's headstone (Find A Grave Memorial# 64879442) on my page for this man?

Thank you for your consideration, for the work you're doing and, most of all, for the generous spirit in which you do it.

Andreas Schaedler
I've put in a correction to Mr. Schaedler's memorial. I didn't know he had two wives in addition to Margarethe Ruedi, however I do have him marrying Christina Borth in 1917. Margarethe's maiden name is spelled several ways; I use Ruedi and I've seen it also spelled Riede, as well as Reudi. Margarethe's first husband was Phillip Hartwig who died in 1915 in North Dakota.

Jackie Winn Ross
Audrey Sayler
I almost made the mistake of putting the picture for Andreas in the spot for AUdrey Sayler, as when taking the picture I thought it was Audrey. So I agree with you...I think it is an error. Please Brian, don't bother going back to Underwood, as I have been there twice and if I didn't find them, and you didn't, I think that there are probably no stones. I did find a picture that I can now put on for a findagrave. that says no stone. It is quite nice and is an alternative for those with no stone and yet family is requesting one.

Patricia Munder Thompson
Monica Sturn Glasser 2 entires
Thanks for all the work you have done to preserve our history. You are a blessing.

I am doing research on the Munder family which includes 2 of the Sturns as son-in-laws. Noticed there are two entries for the same person:
Monica Sturn # 112136518 with limited info and
Monica Sturn Glasser # 112136429. Both the DOB and DOD are the same and the cemetery is the same. Can you please combine them?
I did enter a link for Monica Sturn to her parents: #92642237 (Stephan Sturn) and #92642524 (Marian Zander Sturn) Hope these can be included in Monica Sturn Glasser entry...or would you like me to enter them?
Thanks again!!

Carl Halvorson
Hello, again,
There actually is a stone for Carl at the Rose Hill cemetery. Can you edit your caption that says he has an unmarked grave? Would you be willing to transfer ownership to me? Carl was the brother of my maternal grandmother, Thilda Halvorson Brasch.
Thanks again.

Matt Mattson
Thank you for taking the time to get a photo of where Matt Mattson's grave site is. Sad that neither he, nor his wife had a headstone. I'm researching the family of a friend of mine who is 89 years old. Matt Mattson was his grandfather. I appreciate your efforts.

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?
