Rebecca Bull Mendenhall
Hi Nancy,
Beautiful memorial for Rebecca Bull Mendenhall.
I am working on a DAR application for one of her descendants.
Where did the complete dates of birth and death dates for Rebecca come from? I need to document the dates. Can you help me ?
Thanks !
Emily Cooper

Chouinard/ mattson headstones
Nancy, I am related to Hulda Mattson Chouinard's sister Adelaide (she married a cousin Verne Weydert). I'm writing to request permission to use photos of their headstones on Wiki Tree. I would also like to use the bio's from their graves (giving you credit of course). Thanks, Pauline

Desiree Bronson
Apart of the Scott Line

My grandmother Jean Francis Gilbert Bronson, is the daughter of Mildred Ruth Scott Gilbert. Who is the daughter of Velma Lee Johnson Scott. I never knew my grandmother Jean. She passed away when my father was 13 years old and it's very hard for my father to talk about, also my grandfather Kingsley Bronson passed away 7 years ago and I never thought to ask him any questions. So if you have any further information or have any questions for me you can email me at

Thank You,

Johnsons/Scotts in Big Lake
Dear Nancy, Thank you for your posting of information and pictures of Velma Johnson Scott and her family. She was a Second cousin of my Grandfather. Her Father, Sigvart, was a first cousin of my Great-Grandma Carrie Pedersen Jensen, who is buried with her husband at Big Lake. Carrie's father Jonas Pedersen is up in Pine River, but Cecelia, Sigvart's Mother, is in Big Lake. There are a very large number of relations through Cecelia (Sidsel Anna) and Hans C. Johnson, but I have appreciated finding as many of them as I can. I'm happy to share anything that might be of interest. Best wishes to you and yours for the New Year.

RE: Dora Cook Herman Kroening
Hi Nancy, I am sorry, but Hugh and Dora are the only Cooks in the cemetery. I went over and walked through the entire cemetery just to be sure (it is not very big and only took about 20 minutes), and she is not there. I did a search in the Minnesota Death Certificate Index and there is a Helen J Cook that died 07 Mar 1925 in Hennepin County, but you would have to order a copy of the death certificate to verify if it is her.

Dora Cook Herman Kroening
Hi Nancy, I guess I wasn't clear when I said that Hugh and Dora were buried next to each other. I meant under the same standing headstone labeled Cook. Also, the Minnesota Death Certificate Index lists Dora's date of death as 12 Jul 1933. I hope this helps. Tom
