Matilda Shaw

I went out to Bohemian National Cemetery to look for Matilda Shaw twice and I was not able to find her, so I went up to the Steele County Recorders office to look her up.

Matilda did die here in Steele County but is not buried in Bohemian. According to the records that I found, at age 26 she is divorced, a pauper and living and dying at the Steele County Poor House of consumption(which I guess back then everyone was diagnosed with.) I went to the Historical Society to ask about the Poor House and find out where there is a interment for those that died there, and according to the people that I talked to they "would" be either buried in Forest Hill Cemetery with and an unmarked grave or in a potters field. The people that I talked to said that would not make a 100% guess as too where she is buried, but a good chance that she will be buried in either place.

Hello, I appreciate you posting a picture of the cemetery. However, you posted a picture of the Islamic gate, and that is not where my mother is buried. Please remove it as it is misleading. Thank you.

Her name is Evelyn May Tesch

Hi Lee, thank you so much for the great headstone shots for my Leinen kin and married children. I felt like we were having a party so many came in at once! I see I missed John Leinen and a couple more in Calvary so just requested headstone photos for them too. Sorry you did not have them all at once. My 20 limit fills up and then I forget to go back in and fulfill the remainders.
Regards, Catherine

Hi Lee...just working on the Beaudreau family again...and wondered if you were ever able to 'dig up' (literally) the headstone for Edward Beaudreau (Find A Grave Memorial# 74725092). As a refresher, you truly did 'dig up' the headstone for his wife, Margaret (Find A Grave Memorial# 74725172). I know this is probably a bad time of year to request more digging...but keep me in mind when the Spring comes. Ciao from northern Italy. SKY
