I am in agreement with you on this.I am not sure how I missed that. I think I have found where he may be buried and need to research it further but I found his brother, Thomas buried at Oakland Cemetery in St. Paul. I need to research it further to confirm it. Such as sad thing and hard to read what happened to him. Thanks for saying something

RE: Kirsti Williamson
Thanks for the information. According to our records, she was buried in Minneapolis Pioneers and Soldiers Cemetery (formerly Layman's) on April 1, 1909 (two days after she died). I'll double check with the burial permit, death certificate, and caretaker's daybook but I'm pretty sure that she was never buried in Rochester. I'll let you know what I find.

Kirsti Williamson
Hi Jenny, I'm curious what you know about Kirsti Williamson. Our records have her buried in Minneapolis Pioneers and Soldiers Cemetery in South Minneapolis on April 1, 1909. I looked at the list of people buried in Rochester's cemetery and her name is listed but there is no burial date for her there. Do you have any idea who purchased a marker for her? Thanks for all of your work on this.

RE: Anna Sophia Wille
Hi Jennie,

The reason I indicated that her body had been lost or destroyed is that in small town German churchyards grave sites of common people are recycled approximately every 20 years and the bones and any headstone removed. I visited all of the towns and churchyards several years ago.

I put more information on Anna Sophia Wille on the rootsweb world connect website. All of her children were listed as illegitimate in the church records.

Name: Anna Sophia WILLE
Sex: F
Birth: 6 JAN 1775 in Beckedorf #25
Death: 27 APR 1836 in Ohndorf #19
Burial: 30 APR 1836 Hohnhorst

Transfer request - Memorial 41006941
Dear Jenny,

we have communicated a couple of times in the past, and You were so grateful to guide me to Ella's grave. Meanwhile I have visited her 2 times, and I will visit her again this summer ... she means a lot to me, although I have never met her. After thoughtful considerations I would like to aks you if You could transfer her memorial to me ... it would mean a lot to me, and I would appreciate it a lot.

She was a cousin to my great granduncle, so theoretically I would not be entitled to ask You for a transfer, however I still hope You do make an exception to the rule ... through her grave / your entry I was able to start following my US family, which eventually let to personal encounters, friendship and new bonds between the Swiss Hausers and the US Hausers.

Thanks a lot.
Best regards
Andreas Hauser

RE: Wilhelmina Ronneberg
Yeah, I've been going nuts trying to figure this out and as soon as I started unlocking all the mysteries about Wihlemina ... I find info I'd never seen before that shows she's not my relative. *head smack*

But thanks for the info! At this point I almost feel like I owe it to Wilhelmina to keep going. lol.

Your memorial #41408161 (Armina Woodward)
Bessie Pace Wurn # 96923970 married William Wurn ( #96923975, 1887-1959) on 30 Mar 1910 at Plymouth, Cerro Gordo Co., IA. I've been doing some edits regarding the Wurn family, and I was just curious as to why Bessie's mother Armina's tombstone says she was born in 1866, while you have her birth year as 1870. Also, is James E. Pace, Armina's first husband, on Find A Grave? Thanks, and Happy New Year!

Listing of all the burials at State Hospital

I just ran across at text file that shows every body that is buried at State Hospital Cemetery in Rochester. The title is:

Rochester State Hospital Cemetery Burials, Rochester, Olmsted Co., MN

(Now part of Quarry Hills Nature Center)


It comes from USGENWEB. Here is the URL:

You can download the txt file, but I'll bet you already have a copy.

Anyway, tell all the people that are or were working on putting down the new grave markers, that they have done a wonderful job. The one for Isabell St. John (1869 - May 17, 1996) in plot A Section 12 looks great and I know it was not there a few years ago.

Thanks, from Powder Springs, Georgia.
Brian Brunner

BTW: I'm related to Sharleen who you gave Isbell's Find A Grave record maintenance to in 2015. (In the note below this one.)

Isabell St John FAG record transfer.
