Hi, Jim ~ there seems to have been some confusion over Joncy & Myra Dey...Joncy was the husband according to 1920 census ~ he was born c. 1860 and died 1920 by his grave marker. Myra's will was executed in 1940 so I'd guess she died that same year at age 73. There's not much else on them I've found via

RE: Myra Dey
You're welcomed, Jim...we'd been looking for Mrs Dey for a number of years so at least got to pinpoint her even if she has no marker.

Thank you so much for the picture of the memorial. Did you happen to notice if there were any other Duke markers? Thanks for what you do.

David Reed Sr.
I greatly appreciate your effort and reply. David and his wife Fatima are my 3 times great-grandparents. I thought there was a stone since his memorial page listed an inscription and there are burial plot coordinates. I guess his stone has disappeared over time. His wifes stone is damaged.

Trammell headstone request
I'm so sorry. I must have been wanting to request a different headstone. Sorry for the inconvenience.

RE: Case Beckham
Thank you so much for getting back to me so quickly! I really appreciate you deleting the pictures. Please don't think that we were upset with you in any way. We just like to see the grass instead of the dirt. If you could transfer the memorial over to me, that would be great! Thank you so much!

Pictures for Case Beckham
Jim, Thank you for putting these pictures up of our grandson's grave. Unfortunately, we would like you to please delete them. They are very painful to look at since they're taken a day or two after we buried him. We have taken some nice ones now that the grass has grown in. Thanks!

Thanks for adding those MARSHALL/ZELIFF edits. Decided this was the way to go. I've been holding on too long with information I collected over the years, and now maybe someone can add to it. The spelling of the name makes it difficult to trace
accurately. Hope to find stones in Riverview. I know there is a Hullehan/Hulihan stone. Dowling? McDonald? Don't know about them. Am going by the Riverview Cemetery records, but they only begin in 1848, and our group died before then. Stay tuned.

RE: Inez Marshall
Jim, although I'm the "official" genealogist for the K/Catherman family I don't know anything more than you do about Inez. Whatever little research was done by one or more of my predecessors, both now deceased. With over 20,000 people in my data base it's impossible for one person to keep up with everybody. Actually I learned more from her memorial than my predecessors knew and I thank you for that.

i am Ray Thorpe's oldest son and living in TX. Dad is doing well and living in International Falls. I have been doing some research work on the Jorgenson/Langei/Bakken/Thorpe family. I have been giving the information to dad as he was very interested in this information. Dad is now 87 years old he had a stroke and hearth attack after surgery but he is doing very well. Mom is still going strong and still gets around like she is in her 50s.
I am trying to located Uncle Ken's military information.

We did not see a Joseph for the dates indicated, but will be returning to look again. Thank you.

RE: Anne Brooks
Hi Jim, I couldn't find her mother's burial on Find-A-Grave. She most likely is buried in the Fitzhugh Cemetery but I can't confirm it.

Thanks for helping me with the edits. Sheila

RE: Albert Bakken
We looked and looked over the same ground. We could find everyone else listed in the book for that area but not Albert's. We came away feeling like two blind fools but there must not be a marker. Sorry. I love being able to see the grave stones of my ancestors.

calculated relationship
Hi Jim, You have one of Catharine Andres Schmelz's daughters listed as Catherine Schmelz Quinter. The information I have says Catherine Schmelz married Jacob Miller and they had 5 daughters. She was born in 1857 and died in 1888. Can you help me sort this out? Where did you get your information? Thank you, Jenny B.

Thank you so much for posting the photo of Grandma Marjorie's Grave marker. I never got to know her myself, but what little I did know is that she was a kind hearted woman.

I am the daughter of Catherine Gunter. Her date of death was October 21, 2013 instead of October 15. Please correct this. Thank you

I see you left flowers for Marie & Carl Gerlach. I am researching this couple in my genealogy and wondering if you have any information on them. Please email me at
Thank you

RE: Margaret Schmelz
A transfer would be fine.

Added by Marjorie on Nov 26, 2013 7:58 AM

Margaret Schmelz
I take that back. I have her in my records as Maggie. I think the stone says Maggie but someone else put her in so it is Margaret 1872-1913

Added by Marjorie on Nov 25, 2013 6:45 PM

Margaret Schmeltz
Did you find Margaret. She is under Maggie in St Lawrence Cemetery.
I found Stephen's parents but I only have a birth date. I can't find a death date for them so they are probably alive and very old.
