RE: Detals of Lucy Maude Maskell Cripps
Hi Joan
Thank you for your reply. Here is the link to a copy of Lucy's birth certificate (, which confirms the date and place of her birth.
Just to clarify, her bieth date is Twelfth April 1870, and the place is Commonside, Kingswinford, Staffordshire.

I am still working on the siblings and children, so will message you another time regarding them.

Detals of Lucy Maude Maskell Cripps
Hello Joan

Thank you so much for the Photographs of Lucy's headstone. You do such a good service. I was so excited when I found this information

I am the granddaughter of Thomas Percival Maskell, Lucy's youngest brother, and have done extensive research into this family.

Please would you make a few corrections to the information accompanying the photos.

In the following corrections you will note that I give Lucy's birthdate as 12 April instead of 11 April. I have a copy of her birth certificate, so I can be exact in that date.

1. Under the heading 'Rites' the second paragraph should read - Lucy Maud Maskell was born April 12, 1870 in Commonside, Kingswinford, Staffordshire, England, the daughter of Lucy Law and Charles Bewick Maskell.

2. Under the heading 'children', there should also be Gladys M Cripps (1896 -)

3. Under the heading 'siblings' there should also be:-
Ida Beatrice Maskell Pritchard (1877 - 1954)
Clara May Maskell Kingston (1880 - 1966)
Mary Annie Elizabeth Maskell Harrop (1882-abt 1955)
William Bewick Maskell (1885 - 1968)

Once again, many thanks for all you are doing.

Thanks & a question
You're doing a great job! Thank you Joan Edmonson! Is it possible that you've been specially interested in those people you've presented with long texts? In that case you probably have them in your own genealogical database and possibly they are your relatives - as it happens they are mine too. Today I became a free member here, after finding great information about my distant relatives, the Harvala family (Jacob ja Jemina's family originated from Ylivieska in Finland).
Are you connected to that family and in that case even to my country, Finland?

Best regards

Adding a Picture
Thank you for adding the information on my father Lloyd Robert Weeks. But a small correction needs to be made he is not buried in California. His ashes were scattered over the Pacific ocean. And I would like to add a Picture of him to the information as well. Can you please let me know how to do that. You can contact me directly via email.

Thank you

St Matthew's / Butterfield City Cemetery
Hi Joan,

I was down in Butterfield, Minnesota a few weeks ago and took a bunch of pictures of my relatives headstones and posted them to the St. Matthew's page. I just found out today talking to my cousin Mable (Wallem) Olson that our relatives are actually buried in the Butterfield city cemetery. When you drive in the last driveway there everything on the left hand side is St. Matthew's cemetery, everything on the right is the Butterfield city cemetery. That means the Wallem's that you have listed in St Matthew's actually belong in the city cemetery. Just thought you would like to know that. If you would like to transfer them to me I would gladly take care of them, Richard & Taletta are my great-great grandparents and Rosa is my great aunt.

RE: Richardine Sackett Reeser-# 79622853
Richardine Sackett is the sister to my Husband great grandmother. The 3 pictured are Gladys Sackett Stephnes Andrews, Richardine Sackett Reeser, and Bernice Sackett Nelson. Gladys is my husband great grandmother. My Mother-in-law had the pictures. I wish I could figure out who Bernice's husband and children are. I have been stumped on that one. I have some pictures of Bernice too but have not figured out where she is buried. Look forward to hearing from you. I just found her father's headstone on a Billions graves but I don't think that the cemetery that it is listed in is correct. It says it is in North Aurora but I think it might be in Batavia.

RE: Photo
You are welcome very much. It was a very beautiful day on Sunday to walk around the cemetery. I got about half of it photographed. Hopefully soon I can get back there to finish before the weather changes.

Rock Grove Township Gaylords
Hi Joan,

I am a former resident of Nora Springs and am currently a student at North Dakota State University. I'm very much hoping that my final class project for a current Public History course can be about the Gaylord family's impact on Nora Springs. Thank you for all the work you've done here. I wonder if you are related and would have any stories I could use? Please, contact me.

Harry Hitchcock Henrietta Cemetery
Hi Joan ! I was wondering if I could get you to change my Grandfathers death date. He died Jan 26, 1951 not on the 25th. There was a typo in his obituary so it said the 25th. If you need further proof, I can send it.Thanks, Kathy

I'm taking over management of Marjorie's memorials since she has recently passed away. I don't know what to do about this memorial as I have no info on Ellen South. Maybe she is buried in a nearby cemetery. Let me know if you find further info. Thanks. ~Terry

RE: Benjamin Cool
You are welcome.
I shot them on the 14th and someone else did also it seems. Kinda strange, I was up north where I did not have a signal to add them so I was going to add the whole family yesterday when I got home and someone must have been following right behind me and shot the same stones I did. But I have a family group photo of their lot but Find A Grave was down last night, so I will add more to Sam and ALL the other names in the lot as well, so look back at them and there will be an extra one as soon as I label the group shot.

St, Peter Cemetery, Park Rapids
Joan, you took a great photo for the St. Peter cemetery back when, however it is not posted on all of the memorials, specifically the Schoenberger's, could you please add the cemetery photo to Michel and Ann's stones? Perhaps Find A Grave could add the photo to all the current and future stones.
Thanks in advance. Cathy W.
