Dana Marie Freeman Deane
Dee - I just looked at the Immaculate Conception Cemetery in Raub, McLean County, North Dakota and found Dana Freeman Deane listed as buried there. That's more likely than in Billings County as the reservation is closer to Raub. Maybe someone up there can check for her grave there - I won't be going that far north on this genealogy trip.

Dana Marie Freeman Deane
Dee - I was just at the Immaculate Conception Cemetery here in North Billings County, North Dakota and don't see a headstone for Dana Deane. There are 14 unnamed white crosses there, and all the other headstones have names. Just wondering how you knew she was there. I was hoping to add photos for all the graves.

Access to the cemetery is not a problem, the "no tresspassing" signs are for the woods next to it.
However, we could not find James Davenport, but we got photos of everyone there and there are several other Davenports.

Thanks, Ed Saye
