Johan Gerhard Wiklund ("John")
Mike,

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. My Great Uncle was from Manitoba, which you know is not too far from Minnesota. He was of Scandinavian descent, according to our family records. I lived in Winnipeg as a child, and my husband lived in St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota, so I have made the drive a number of times.

I thought you might like to read the obituary for him. My Aunt cut it out, and she cut off the date of the paper, so I don't know the exact date of his death, except that he was 53 years old.

The obituary mispells his last name ... which was Wikland. He and my Aunt PHYLLIS MULBERRY married in October 1942 in Winnipeg.

If you would like to read the obituary or the marriage license, it is on the Find-a-grave memorial I created for him, numbered:

JOHAN GERHARD WIKLUND # 134650455

Again, thank you for your message.

Yours truly,

Maureen Mulberry Davis

"Plunging down a 40 foot grain chute at Kelloe, Manitoba, John Wicklund, 53, of 481 Toronto Street, was instantly killed Friday at about 2:00 p.m.
R.C.M.P. said that Mr. Wicklund, a carpenter employed by Overgaard Construction Company, 525 Sprague Street, was working on an Ogilvie Flour Mills Grain Elevator when the accident occured. He had been working at the top of the grain chute, when he slipped and fell, breaking his neck.
Dr. Robert Keippen, Coroner from Newdale, Manitoba, attended and decided death was accidental, and no inquest would be held. The body was taken to Rae's Funeral Home at Shoal Lake, Manitoba.

Dear Mr. Wiklund,

I was trying to find where my Great Uncle 'Johan Gerhard Wiklund' is buried. He was married to my Great Aunt, Phyllis Isabel Mulberry. He tragically died in a grain elevator accident in Kelloe, Manitoba.

I was wondering if you might be related to him.

Yours truly,

Maureen Mulberry Davis

Hi Mike:

Can't get the photo of his spouse yet. Most the time it takes about 5 weeks to get the stone done. Not sure if there will be a slow down with most the Govt not working.

The staff at Mt. Moriah Cemetery in Kansas City, MO has no record of Ms. Wicklund. Perhaps she is at the other Mt. Moriah(Terrace).

Old Tacoma doesn't have a listing for Linus Wiklund. They tried multiple spellings.

RE: linus
Wow,

That's quite the undertaking! LOL.

Another volunteer on here (klassikat) and I get to know these early death years at Old Tacoma pretty well. 9 times out of 10 they are in areas of the cemetery where there isn't a marker and maybe just a stamped block with a space number on it....and even that might be sunk down. I won't know, for sure, his location until I call the cemetery....and will let you know.

Willie Talbot Burt and Mary Jane Audtland had a son, my grandfather, William Ray Burt. He was born July 18, 1887 in Minnesota and died in an accident July 16, 1921 in Moerland, Multonomah, Oregon. Could you add this to the children of Willie Burt.

RE: Palenberg
The Palenberg I know is more or less 20 miles away. It's a small town with 5000 people and has fusioned with towns around to the new name Übach-Palenberg. You can find it in Google maps. If you have questions don't hesitate to ask me.
Kind regards from Germany

Hi Mike,
I have the photo you requested, having taken it last November 2011.

I sent a message to the person who claimed it. If you want a shot of the grave at a distance, maybe "Dicky" can take that for you.

I did an earlier search for this marker and the National Park Service at the Cemetery has no record. Note: 80% of those buried there are unmarked so there would be know way of knowing. Ross

Thank you so much! I will try to contact him. It's been a long road finding information on my ancestors.

Hi Mike,
I was researching my ancestors and I noticed that you were a shipmate of my distant cousin, Charles Willard Higdon.

I was wondering if you had any more information on him. If he was married, had children, or any stories you can tell me.

Anyway, thanks in advance for your time.

Jeffrey Duarte
In Regard to Your Request(s)
If you are requesting I try to visit a cemetery for you and take a picture of a marker, please provide the location of the grave within the cemetery. Cemeteries are reluctant to provide a grave location to non-family members. Also, let me know if the marker is an upright marker or one that lies flat on the ground. A lot of flat markers can be hidden by overgrowth, leaves, or freshly cut grass.

RE: Botts
Your welcome Mike and thanks for the heads up on Botts. I added him to my virtual cemetery. No 30 days is not very long to learn everything. It's a shame we lost so many to that war.

Take Care, ~Steve

Hi, photos are now posted of the stone for SOC Jason Workman at Arlington National.

Thanks!

Hi, I've just posted photos for you of the stone for SOCS Heath Robinson at Arlington National.

Unfortunately, the stone for Jason Workman has still not been placed. My claim on your photo request will expire prior to it's being put in place, I think. If it's ok, I will delete your request, photograph the stone when it's in, and notify you, as I've just done for Heath Robinson.

Thank you very much!

marker for Frances David Dodd
Hi Mike,
I added a photo of the marker for Frances David Dodd to the headstone shots. It is at an unusual distance from the headstone and partially covered by sod. I put in a request to the cemetery to have it raised up. Sorry, it took so long to get something. I see another contributer was able to supply the headstone in a timely fashion.
Cheers,
Richard
