Please transfer to me Emily Babcock 94579226 also. She is my great grandmother. I have lots of information I can add including pictures, etc.

Thanks for your quick response. I'm afraid dear aunt Julia is in that lost cemetery information. The person at the cemetery told me there 'may' be a footstone on grave number two. But she couldn't find any inscription on it. I just may have to make a drive to the Cemetery and play archaeologist. Wouldn't be the first time we have dug up buried headstones. Thanks again for all your help.

RE: Renville, MN Finnish Cemetery
You are certainly welcome. That old Gothic script on Finnish headstones is sure a challenge. That particular one is the MOST difficult one I have *ever* seen.
