Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my families' genealogy for over 30 years. I've also researched my husband's family, friends' families and try to help others in their search. I compulsively read obituary notices (even though there is no one I know) and love to visit old cemeteries and read the stones, so this is the next logical step.

Please submit requests and corrections to memorials I maintain via the "Suggest A Correction" tab. I only transfer memorials within FAG guidelines ("our family" is not part of the guidelines) but am more than happy to do any and all corrections and updates. I do not add links on my memorials to "burial unknowns".

Please do not add scans of obituaries as photos. Send them to me and I will transcribe them into their proper place in the bio section of the memorial.

I have entered a lot of memorials but haven't been able to go back and add additional information and links as I would like. However, that doesn't mean I'm not interested. I am gradually adding information but I have a very busy life outside of Findagrave. I welcome all information and try to respond to Suggest A Corrections promptly.

Marena Wills Storie
Kim...we have a mystery....two ladies with very, very similar data.

or is it the same person...

I found an obit for Marena Wills Clemens Storie.
She lived in Sioux Co, Iowa, then moved to South Dakota..which is an adjoining county...just crosses a state line.

Do you have any info to indicate that her remains were moved to Wisconsin after her initial burial in South Dakota.

It would make more sense if her husband Wm Storie
was buried there, but I'm not finding a record of that in Columbia Co, Wisconsin. I do have 2 different Wm Storie/Story in the Canton,SD area. The one in the same cemetery,but his dates don't jive and the other, there isn't any data, just a record from a WPA record.

I've only done internet research. I live about an hour from Canton and could research for obits locally.. are you near Lodi, Wisconsin? Any interest in helping with the mystery?

Her husband passed away in 1881 and following his death she came to Hawarden and lived with her sister, Mrs. W. T. McPherson, so well known by many of the older residents of this city. In 1896 she married William Storie at Cuba City, Wis., and for a number of years they made their home in this city. From here they moved to Canton. Besides her husband she is survived by one son, Albert Clemens of Sheldon, seven sisters, Mrs. Mary Eddy, Mrs. Katherine Eddy, Mrs. Elizabeth Clemens and Mrs. Susan Willey all of Cuba City Wis., Mrs. Jesepha McPherson of Hawarden, Mrs. Emma Nelson of Missouri Valley, Iowa, and Mrs. Hannah Wilson of Butte, Nebraska, and three brothers, William Wills of Butte, Ne., and John and Grant Wills of Platteville, Wis.

Stillborn Male Culver
Hi Kim! My suggestion of "Stillborn Male" was not meant to be the name for Boy Culver. I should have made myself more clear--I'm so sorry for the confusion!
