RE: Ostrem family in Crystal Lake
Reusing a name is not at all uncommon. You will find it time & time again. Children & mothers didn't always live very long in the 19th century. Men would marry one sister and when she died he'd marry another one. Of course, you also had the children at home with the help of a relative or midwife. My mother was born within the city of Minneapolis in 1907...with a midwife. Uffda!

RE: Ostrem family in Crystal Lake
Morn! Apparently Even & Carrie Ostrem had Cora Hazel Ostrem in 1892 (died in 1893) and then reused her first name. Uffda! I am also Norwegian. Snakker du norsk?

Thanks for the additional information!

The California Death index shows a date of death for Marie of 10/5/1943 rather than 10/4, otherwise we updated everything else.

Would you like the pages transferred?

Wolf, (that's kinda cool!) Thanks for the note you left on Shawn's grave. Your poor Uncle must have felt so helpless that day. Shawn's touched so many in the community and none of us will ever forget. Thanks again.

Gertrude Blodgett memorial
I see that you left a note last year on the entry for Gertrude Blodgett. Gertrude would be related to me as a first cousin, second removed. Father John Hollond Blodgett and Katherine Katz. I have an old picture if desired, but it was when Gertrude was just born.

RE: Wolf grave pics
Hi Holly, I'll see if I can find their obits. That might iron out a few wrinkles. Also, in the lower right corner of the photo of Marie's stone, you can see the corner of Nicholas' IM (or speed bump as I lovingly refer to them). Tyler

RE: Leslie Ann Pluhar
Thank you very very much. Finally the answer I wanted. First time I have ever seen a actual newspaper clipping-couldn't even find the obituary notice. Thank you very much once again.

You wrote "My father's father's mother was Clara Hamaker. She was the daughter of William and Anna." So, I transferred Kermit and Alma Hamaker to you because you are family to them. I updated information you send to me. any more updates you will have to due. You now maintain the sites.

RE: Hamaker Pics
Are you part of the Hamaker Family? When I was there I took another headstone picture. I posted it also of Kermit and Alma G. Hamaker.
