|Bio and Links|
I enjoy genealogy and I'm always hunting for pieces of family history here and there. I am particularly interested in my own family history in Lucas County, Iowa; La Salle County, Illinois; Butler County, Kansas; and Harrison County, Missouri. I do not live in these locations, but I occasionally take pictures of grave sites when I visit.|
Please feel free to use any photos I have added to honor your loved ones on other websites. Credit is always appreciated, but not required. Also, if I am not related to an individual, I would be happy to transfer management of your loved ones to your account. I have surveyed some of my family's cemeteries and in the process have added other non-family members to findagrave.com, so if you would like me to transfer them to you, just ask.

|okwheeler||Many thousand thanks for transfer|
Dear Slooper Cousin - Thank you so much for the transfer of my Norwegian ancestors buried at Napa, CA. Now I have to get busy expanding their memorials. Maybe in the future we can compare "Slooper" notes. I suspect you might be connected to family listed on p. 464 of the Slooper book..? I'm at the bottom of p. 468.
Would you please transfer management for the following relatives who are buried in Tulocay Cemetery, Napa, California:
Jacob Anderson (Slogvik) - Memorial# 84116104 - My 2nd great grandfather
Serena Madland Anderson - Memorial# 84115653 - My 2nd great grandmother
Jacob Anderson (1844-1866) - Memorial# 84116675 – My great granduncle
I am the family historian for this family and their "Slooper" descendants. My wife and I played a major role in having the Norwegian monument stone installed at their graves in 2004. I am currently the official "owner" of this Anderson Tulocay plot. For more see the several web pages that start at: http://wheelerfolk.org/slooper/slooper_monument_project.htm
Thank you very much for your assistance with this.
Sincerely, O. Keith Wheeler, Eureka, California

|Kris D||RE: Thank you!|
You are very welcome! Hannah Clark's stone is nearly unreadable, but the inscriptions were copied in the 1860's and I added hers with the photo.

Some marriage records recently added to Ancestry show Amanda J (Leazenby) Frost, Jacob's first wife as Maude's mother. Since Maude was born in 1893 and Amanda died in 1894 (Jacob married Clara in 1894) so it makes sense. I hope this helps :) Thanks for all your work! I appreciate it!

|T. Cook||RE: Charles Rundquist|
Hi - you can read all about Louisa here
This is my Cook family history page.
More work to be done as I am still looking through census records that are hard to read from Galesburg.

Hi - I am confident that Charles Rundquist is the brother of Louisa Rundquist. He was in Mankato, MN at the same time as Louisa, and her obituary says she moved up there to be with him. He is the only Rundquist living in Mankato area according to the census.
She had a brother name Charles on the Swedish census that matches to the year. His obit mentions he was an only child but it could be his second wife knew nothing of his family.
His parents were David Hansson Rundquist and Inga Hansdotter, other sisters were Maria and Elna with the youngest Johan, who died in Sweden at a young age. They all came to Galesburg by 1854.
