Lahti family-Moose Lake Fire 1918
Thank you for adding the memorials. I have added as much information to the family as I can find. Baby boy was born after they moved to Moose Lake area, so I am unable to find his name in the Kingston Township records.

William Johnston, Jr.
Hello, I see you have created 130548321 for my 3rd great grandfather. I am writing as I came across a profile at South Bethel Cemetery, Tipton, Iowa Find A Grave Memorial# 52006445 and wondering if you may think that could be his father, Rev. William Johnston mentioned in the Muscatine history. This is the wikitree entry for William Johnston, Jr. any thoughts would be greatly welcome.

Thank you for the information about Marie, I did find a copy of that book in the Duluth Library. All we had to go by was the Hermantown Cemetery Index, which was incomplete, early records and wooden cross markers having been lost in the 1918 fire. So many sad stories, again, Thank You, KarenS

I noticed a note from you requesting any information on the Heuer family from Muscatine. I have been researching them quite thoroughly the last couple of years. Let me know what you would be interested in and I will do my best to help out.

I uploaded photos of the tall family monument (30+ feet) on each of the Uhlich memorial pages. Resubmit photo requests in the spring when the Chicago snow has melted so the ground markers will be exposed to photograph.

Any questions, let me know.

RE: Nuzum

I have a file on I have been researching the Nuzum side for about one year now. For Hannah, I believe many people have confused her death date with her mother's death date. I will be ordering some documents from the Delaware archive. These are civil with her and Richard listed as the plaintiff's in October 1792. I also recently found references to them in the Redstone Monthly Meetings past the October 1791 death date so many people have listed for her. These will be harder to track down. You are welcome to any information I have.

Cheryl Hartley, Harrison
Benjamin Fowler, Jr

I was told that you listed information on this memorial something about Family Finders 47321903. Could you please advise me as to where you located this information? Benjamin Fowler owned the property my folks and my grandparents' houses were built on. Actually my grandparents home was a school house. I'm trying to reconstruct who actually owned the property before my folks and grandparents, there is a time gap im trying to fill between the years of 1887 and when my mom moved out to that area when she was in the 4th grade, which would have been close to 1949 or so. I haven't made a trip yet over to the courthouse, that is on my agenda to do soon. But when I saw your information I figured I'd check out your source, too. Never can have too much documentation.

Benjamin Fowler, Jr is buried in Freeman Cemetery, Indianapolis, Indiana over on Kitley Road, not too far from the property actually, I used to ride my bike in that area all the time when I was a young girl.

Thank you so much for your help and information.

RE: Archie Raymond
Yes, I have photographed and posted 37 cemeteries so far. And am looking forward to going back to Moose Lake when it stops raining! It's too far to go there very often but I've done Kanabec and Pine county. What I didn't do my friend Kathy did. She has since moved to NC and is continuing the work there.

I've noticed that you are adding what you can from the book about the fire that you have. A really tragic event.

I think there are two Riverside cemeteries in Moose Lake. At least 2 are at Find A Grave with a different sign for each and the one I posted does not have the same names as at the other one.
The caretaker is not very friendly. He told me to stop clearing off stones ( so I could see it to take a picture) because it made a mess!
After he left, I cleared it off, got my picture and covered it back up again. It's a real shame to allow the stone to disappear underground though!

George W. Parker
You said that you are related to George W. Parker. Do you know if he had a sister named Margaret Jane, born ca 1855 in Alabama? I have been trying for many years to find the family of my great-grandmother Margaret Jane Parker. In 1872 she married Samuel Witherspoon Liddell who was also born in Alabama and they soon moved to Arkansas. In the 1880 census they lived in Poinsett Co., AR and had a G. W. Parker living with them. I have always assume that this was Margaret's brother as they are only two years apart. Just thought I would check with you. Thanks!

Eldred Plot

I'm all finished with your request of photographing all of lot 101. I uploading all of the photos I took. I have also added a couple of memorials that were missing and have transferred them to you. I will inform the volunteers about James Bedee. He was not listed in the burial list as being in that location even though the rest of the family was moved there. His name appears on the left side of the plot map. I believe they did move him and forgot to update the burial list to reflect it.

It was a lot of fun & glad I could have helped.
Now on to the next!
Best regards,
Margaret Ballinger

Roots in City Cemetery

I just returned from photographing the Eldred plot for you. I took photos from several angles and got every stone that was there. There is no marker for Mary. The office was kind enough to research and find the plot in their burial records books. They made a copy and then highlighted the plot (I wish they didn't as I like clean records to copy). On the burial map which is in pencil so it is faint, it shows Mary and a dark dot where her ashes are located in the plot. It looks like her husband's ashes are there too but it is hard to read. I scanned the burial plot map into my computer and plan to darken the letters a bit. While taking pictures, I took an angled picture that shows the area where the ashes were places and nearby stones to show the relation to match up with the burial map. Since there is no marker for Mary I don't know if you wanted me to add this photo on her page.

I would be happy to email you the cemetery burial records that show the positions of the graves within the plot. I can also send you all the photos of this area. You can add them to FindaGrave or copy them as you wish. I am not stingy with them. They are your family after all and not mine. I even took a picture of the step going up into the plot that had Eldred on it.

I emailed a batch of photos to another person and it overfilled his box apparently because it came back to me. The photos are about 2 and a half Megs now. I can reduce them if you wish or send them one at a time. Just let me know if you want them and how.

Glad to have helped. I am recently laid off after 12 years at a plant nursery (they went out of business) and am going crazy in the house with nothing to do. So it really is nice to be able to get out of the house and get moving around. And it helps others too so I really enjoy volunteering. Especially at this cemetery.

I don't know if you know the history of the City Cemetery. It dates back to the gold rush. There was a cholera outbreak that killed at least 3,000. They are buried in a mass grave in the cemetery that is now under the street called Broadway. The cemetery changed hands a few times and the records are all messed up. The volunteers are doing research to try to fix it. They also have lantern tours in October which sell out every year. You have to buy tickets 3 months in advance. The volunteers dress in period dress and educates the tour goers on the history of some of the people buried there. They also have adopt a plot program where you can tend and plant flowers in the plots. I noticed that the Eldred plot has newly planted Aloe Vera in it. It has a huge rose selection too. Back in the late 1970's it was attacked by vandals and they smashed a lot of the stones. It was bad because the stones were from the 1800's. It was bad and they still talk about it because its our heritage that got attacked. Even a Native American section was hit bad. My dad volunteered with the police at the time (got called out to do searches for lost kids and elderly) and they called his group out to help stakeout the cemetery. He said they had false alarms because the reflection of car lights on the marble stones looks like someone was in there with a flashlight. They cemetery gathered the broken pieces of the stones and poured concrete around them to to to fix them so a lot now lay flat. Also I heard that people just stole the stones and statues off of them. So there are a lot of unknowns there that the volunteers are trying to research. But it really is a truly beautiful place to visit. And it was a pleasure to have helped.

RE: Harris
Hi again Collene,

Here's the memorial number (the one I just now made) for Esther Daniels Harris, if you would like to use it for Emma Baker's family link:


I never thought of doing one this way, if the cemetery was moved or lost the way this one was. Great idea.

RE: Harris
Hi Collene!

Thanks so much for getting in touch. I loved the idea you had of putting Hannah Nuzum Harris's memorial online, had not thought to do it that way.

Just now did one for Sylvanus's wife Esther, the way you did for Hannah.

I would love to share info with you. The Harris line is one of my brother-in-law's lines and I did a lot of research for his family history. Found it so interesting.

Also saw the article you added to the memorial for Emma Harris Baker, was happy to see a photo for a member of the Harris family, because that's the first one I've seen.

Can share a couple of interesting records with you, and will work on getting them scanned. I was able to locate and in fact purchase Richard Harris's original will, which was being offered for sale by the Muscatine Historical Society a few years ago, when they were getting rid of things they apparently did not want any longer. The actual original paper, very fragile. Luckily still in my possession because I've been meaning to give to my brother-in-law, but it's still here with me.

Do you know much about the Harris family before they settled in Iowa?

Have you been able to locate Richard's birth family? That one is the puzzle for me.

Thanks for getting in touch with me, and please let me know if you'd like a jpg of Richard's will, am happy to share it.

Hi FF, I am working through your corrections tonight and for Clara W Rachow Eis, you gave me her parents were David Irwin ROCHOW and Anna Schlenker. Since her obit lists a brother named RACHOW and when I went perusing hoping to find her parents buried in Davenport I came across a bunch of RACHOW but not ROCHOW... how certain are you of this spelling? I did find a grave for an Anna Rachow, Rachow, Anna, b. 29 Jun 1837, d. 19 Feb 1896, lot 299 N in Davenport City Cemetery on GenwebIA that is of the right age to be her mother... but no David and no one else age appropriate to be a husband either. I DID Add at the bottom of the Bio as given but I'm OCD when it comes to verifying details. Just checking!

ALSO, buried in the same lot are these people... perhaps relatives or maybe a red herring...
Rochow, Anna, b. 6 Jun 1861, d. 3 Jan 1863, lot 299 N
Rachow, Agnes, b. 9 Dec 1866, d. 25 Oct 1917, lot 299 N
Rachow, Elizabeth, d. 15 Aug 1858, dl 29 Aug 1891, lot 299 N
Rachow, Harrison F., b. 10 Nov 1888, d. 3 Jul 1918, lot 299 N
Rachow, John, b. 21 Nov 1869, d. 4 Nov 1940, lot 299 N
Rachow, Louise, d. 30 Aug 1891, 33 yrs, lot 299 N
Rachow, Rudolph, b. 8 Dec 1868, d 23 Dec 1871, lot 299 N
Rachow, William, b. 16 Nov 1860, d. 4 Apr 1924, lot 299 N
