Tina (Paulson)Voss
Hi my name is Tina (Paulson) Voss. My father was Marshall Paulson of Pinewood Minnesota. he went to Pinewood elementary. His mother was Magdeline (olson) Paulson Ferschweiler 1911-1991 and buried in Pinewood Dodge cemetary--which you have photographed. Her mother was Annie Olson and her father was John D. Olson. I am from CA and would visit Pinewood often. I do remember her talking about a Clara. Im thinking that could possibly have been Magdeline's sister-in law? Magdeline had 2 sons, Henry Paulson of Hudson WI and Marshall Paulson, my father, who is now deceased but had resided in CA---please let me know what you think!! Thank you Tina

RE: Lee Stokely Travis
What a lovely reply! Jim did indeed mention Carol, but as you said, she was much younger and I think the older two regarded her as a pest. When you talk to your mom, please send her Jim's regards. He was, indeed, called Jimmy back in those days but immediately dropped it when he could. Your grandfather and grandmother were about the only relatives he could stand (and after meeting some of them, I completely understand!), and plans had been made for Lee and Mabel to take Jim in the event of his parents' deaths. Your grandparents must have been truly remarkable to have influenced my husband to such an extent.

It's a pleasure to get to meet another part of my husband's family through you and your mother.

Take care!

RE: Lee Stokely Travis
Thanks for responding. He was my husband"s favorite uncle,and Jim had told me such wonderful stories about his cousin Ann and her mother. I feel like I know them. I did some research through which led me to you. We were not aware of Ann's death, nor the death of Mabel.

Again, thanks for the response and for taking care of this site.

Jim and Sara Cagle

RE: Effie Dora Wakeman
I just read your notes and you've got a ton of family names that you're researching but not one of them is Byer. I'm chasing that one out of Indiana thru Bemidji and into Whatcom and Yakima counties, Washington. If you see any Byer tombstones in those little Minnesota cemeteries, please photograph and document them; they may be on my tree. Thanks, again, for everything.

Thank you very much for adding the excellent photos to Effie's memorial. I think a photo of a grassy plot is better than no photo at all. Your photos look great! Thanks again.

RE: Michael Suman #145382320
Thanks Melanie for the heads up. Now I am so confused. The date on the headstone is probably right because it would put him more in line with his siblings. However the Minnesota Death index says 1900. I guess I will have to do a little more digging.

Thank you so much by the way for taking the time out to fulfill my request!

RE: carol shively
Yes, my friends and I knew Claudia Hevel. Margie Baker and I continued to write one another after that summer, she moved to Flagstaff for a bit. I always thought that we should have made a movie like American Graffiti for that summer. We would go swimming at Ice Harbor dam, sneak into the Prescott pool, play football at the school. On top of the comaraderie of the whole town, Waitsburg, Dayton and the area was beautiful. 2 summers ago me and my four kids came back through Lewiston, Idaho and through Waitsburg. We saw the most beautiful sunset ever. My kids had to stop to take pictures of the sun setting over the wheat fields.
As we came through Waitsburg a flood of memories took over and I had to tell my kids about how much fun we had. Craig Smith a friend of mine who worked together got a kick out of me telling about it. He wanted to know if I looked anyone up. They probably wouldn't remember me anyway. Besides, it was late. Yep, very nice girls. Bye

carol shively
Dear Melanie, I was looking up information on Carol Shively and looked up your bio, it said you went to Richland, Wash and Bemidji. What a coincidence, I grew up in Richland and spent summers in Minnesota not for far away by Hutchinson, and Wadena.
I worked the summer of 1970 with a bunch of other guys at the Green Giant cannery in Waitsburg, what a Great summer, we rented a house in town and got to know a lot of townspeople, a real warm community. There I got to know Carol Shively and Margie Baker who was also killed in the car crash. We all had a lot of fun, I also worked for a Mr. Jaquot, roguing wheat. Many, many good memories.
Those girls getting killed just broke my heart and I still think of what they could have done in the years since. I guess that's why we have to live every day to it's fullest. Neil Young is playing "Heart of Gold" (I'm growing old)
I just thought I would tell you to let you know that even when you depart early, people still have a huge impact on other people's lives and futures. I think about them from time to time and truly miss them--good friends. Love, Craig Klucas

Saw message on my E mail to delete my Find A Grave on him. No dups
allowed. So I deleted mine. Now I don'T see one at all. I didn't
know there was one. He's buried in Bejou City Cemetery, MN.
Someone said no grave headstone. Aren't Military supposed to
get on from the government?? Sorry about the dup. Tommy was
my favorite cousin, my father's sister's son. Thanks, no harm
intended. Barb McIntosh-Stott
