RE: Mercer Cemetary correction
Thanks for your work!

Thomas Jefferson McLaughlin was buried in Mercer on 8/18/1919. I didn't see a tombstone for him, just for his 1st wife Emily Johnson (although it did not give her name). I assume he is buried near Emily. Flora Chivington and TJM married in 1894 and Flora is buried in Minot, ND. James Earl is buried in Lansing, MI. The first marriage had at least five children and the second had 6, although many died quite young, and most of the burial sites are unaccounted for.

Mercer Cemetary correction
118053854 Thomas McLaughlin would appear to be my great grandfather. The birthdate is 4/1845. He died 8/16/1919. You could add James Earl McLaughlin, my grandfather, born 4/1887; died 3/1975.

118053783 that could be added to my great grandmother Emily Johnson as well.

Thomas married Flora Chivington and moved to Minot, ND.

George Biddinger?
I copied the obituary directly from the (Richland Shield & Banner: 25 November 1893, Vol. LXXVI, No. 27) and they must have spelled his last name incorrectly? Since you have created a new obit for him, I deleted mine. Thanks for letting me know of the mistake!!

If interested I will take management of all the Swartzinski's at St. Catherine's that you have. They are my wife's family so if you want to transfer them I would be happy to manage them.

Frank Swartzinski

There seems to be two memorials for the same person - Frank Swartzinski - Memorial# 122896505 & 80142555. Both have information that should be merged together.

Is there a way to merge them or should one just be deleted?

Effie J Brownlee
Hello Marge. Effie, #80155354, is a great-aunt to my son-in-law for whom I am doing his family genealogy. Wondering if you would be willing to transfer Effie over to me. If you are related to Effie would you be willing to share what information you have on her. Thanks for your help. It is greatly appreciated.
