RE: Edith Osborne Memorial
Thank you, LeRoy. I realized that the last time I visited the cemetery office, I (wisely!) recorded the location information. Just in case you would like to add that, Franklyn & Edith are located in Div: Lawndale, Lot: 081.
I spent yesterday working on the memorials you transferred and adding more family.
Thanks! Marsha

Your welcome Chief(Top)

Thank you for your 3 decades of service to our nation as well.

A sailor once told me that the only good Marine,
is a submarine. :>)
He had spent 10 years in boomers, so I forgave him.

RE: Dorothea and Ole Jacobson Memorials
Thank you for letting me know. It is an oddity of uploading photos from the iPad and looks just fine on the iPad. I will delete and upload them from a regular computer.

RE: Active Inquiry?
They probably aren't even seeing your thank you!!! And, thank you for your service. My husband retired from the Army after 20 years; oldest son served 11 years in the Air Force and youngest son served 4 years in the Navy. So I am very pro-military!!!

RE: Active Inquiry?
Yes, that's exactly what happens; 21 days and they are automatically done!!! So go to your profile page and in the right hand corner it says "Edit" and then there are pull-downs that you can do. I hate to think of all the people that don't know about it; it's been in effect since December. I'm sure there has been lots of incorrect info added to memorials. However, you can also see that from that pull-down. I try to spread the word and will put it on their profile page, including Ariella's, but Find A Grave has added more things you can do on a memorial now, such as add links.

RE: Active Inquiry?
That might be a good idea if you wrote to Admin also. However, would you be able to sent me a link to her profile page because my edit finally went thru after 21 days. thanks!!!

RE: Active Inquiry?
No, I did not get a reply from "Areilla" (47138563), so I am going to ask Find A Grave to check to see if she is active. I wish that people who have lost interest in Find A Grave would ask admin to take their memorials over.

RE: Lillian Wotzka Memorial
And multiple "heaps of gratitude" for your efforts to share the information which triggered this particular documentation opportunity.

My maternal grandmother (Rose) was a Wotzka and I'm just starting researching this line. As anyone who does the research knows... it can come in spurts, but little "tidbits" & connections are what we need to sustain us when things get slow.

Take care & be well, "PJ"

Ulay & Elizabeth McCollar/McCollor
My guess is that they are buried in Lakeside Cemetery in Herman. It's not documented and a very large one. The McCollar family lived in Roseville township which is near Herman. It's one of two cemeteries (also Lincoln) that I don't have done in Grant County but too far and too large to do for a long time.

I located the obituary for Minnie Louise Curb this afternoon and have added her and the information. She died in Blackduck and is buried in Lakeview Cemetery in Blackduck. I also added the obituaries for Orville and Barry. I trust that this is what you were hoping for. Cecelia

Loren Bender
Cryil Edward Curb
Leroy I have reread your question and will try to answer it with my limited knowledge of how the war Department and Find A Grave works to locate the Burial place of Cryil Curb. During World war II no overseas bodies of American servicemen were sent home because of Logistics and the ongoing war effort. After the war Ended the Next of kin of each dead serviceman was given the choice of sending the body home to be buried in the family's local cemetery or buried with honor in one of the dozen or so American Military cemeteries.About 50% of the bodies were left oversea and 50% were sent home due to the wishes of the next of kin. It was about 1948 and 1949 that this happened.
Someone working with find a grave entered All service men buried in The American military Cemetery's like Cambridge. If they were sent to the states for burial it was left for numerous Volunteer's like you and I to find the graves and enter them on Find a Grave. So if I am looking for a service man killed in world war II and don't find him anywhere on find a grave its because he was sent home and not buried in a military cemetery. So I guess its Safe to say if the American is Listed in an American Military he is there assuming they located his Body. If he is not listed in the Large military cemetery's he has been sent home to the states and it could be hit or miss finding him in Find A Grave because no organized effort was made to enter him. Sorry about the rambling but don't know how else to say it Have a great day Loren

Hello Leroy thanks for the kind e mail.I am 99 percent sure that you will find he is buried in Cambridge England and I agree the one in the states is a Memorial. I also think you will find a stone in both places. I work on thousands of world war II memorials and it is not unusual to have a world war II find a grave listings in 2 places I have even seen 3 locations. When you think of it 90 percent of the world war II men lost in the navy have find a grave memorials with no body. I see what you your saying and I think the proper thing to do is make a notation on the stateside memorial that he is actually buried in England and refer to that Find A Grave #. Hope that helps Loren Bender

Not to confuse things but if he was lost or is missing in action the body might not even be in the Cambridge grave which is also common.
