Are you sure about your corrections for Emma (chg 1862 from death to birth) and Elmere (chg 1863 from death to birth.) Also added was that they were husband and wife. I added the info from a database and entered what they had. I do not know which is correct...any help would be appreciated.

Prairie Mound Cemetery, Oregon, WI
Am writing concerning two graves in The Prairie Mound Cemetery, Oregon, WI; Scott G Reindahl #64363237 is my nephew, was wondering if his memorial could be transferred to me. Also Grover A. Adams #64362162 is my brother, I had not seen your memorial before doing one of my own #64785299, as you can see mine is more complete is there anyway this could be transferred to me also or possibly your deleted. Catfish #47238885

Thank you, Cathi Fischer

First, I am so happy you have made memorials for this family--I have been looking for some time and just now found them at Rutland Center Cemetery. Amos was the brother of my 2nd great grandfather. I have some additional info on this family, also daughter Minnie Spooner and grandchildren, and Hannah's parents. If you would like to transfer them to me that would be fine, otherwise I can just do the edits. Would you mind if I copied the headstone photos for my tree? That is really my primary request. Thanks.

RE: Richard Gamer Sr.
Thank You so much for the transfer and all the helpful tips! It is much appreciated. I have been doing alot of work on completing and extending our family tree. While we have the history part, it was finding where the burials are which actually led me to the site.

I do plan on spending alot of my extra time visitng these cemeteries and taking as many photos as I can each time. I actually love to visit old cemeteries just to see the history of it. I plan on being an active contributor and am looking forward to full filling requests myself. Again, thank you for the transfer and for all you do for the site!

Richard Gamer Sr.
Hi,I am new to virtual cemetaries and am but am wanting to start a virtual cemetery for my family on both my fathers side as well as my mothers since I have been doing alot of work on our family trees and have would really to start out with my Father: Richard A Gamer Sr. # 68906895

We finally got his stone laid this week after many delays by Roselawn. Would it be at all possible to have this transferred to me? Since I am unsure of the process I wanted to start with you since you so graciously added him and obviously know much more about the site.

Junior Hansen
In the Prairie Mound Cemetery in Oregon, WI, is a simple stone with the following inscription:

Junior--son of Martin and Marie Hansen--1930 to 1935

The Find a Grave page mistakenly lists his year of death as 1936 but it should be 1935.

Real name was Martin Neal Hansen.
Father was Martin Charles Hansen, buried in Union Cemetery, Mt. Horeb, WI.
Mother was Marie Catherine Christensen buried in Chewelah WA as Marie Carson. 1900 to 1986

I am the granddaughter of Marie and Martin. My mother, Evelyn, was the older sister of Junior and tragically was holding his hand when he pulled away and ran in front of a car and was killed. She never got over her anguish for that day. His actual dates of birth and death are 8 April 1930 to 19 Jul 1935. He died in Verona, WI.

Hi. Have added Albert Smith in the bio section as a brother to Rose Stout. I believe the Erline child you mentioned was a transcription error for Adeline in the 1920 census as Erline does not show in the 1910 and Adeline does not show in the 1920 but both are listed right after Mabel in both census records.

Thank you for the update.

Hi and thanks for your help with this person. I checked it out and am certain now he is not my g-grandfather. Birth year was the same but wife's info does not match.

mary keleny
Thank you for posting this grave stone (Mary Keleny buried in Saint William Cemetery in Paoli, Wisconsin). I have been searching for information on Mary Keleny for some time! I now have a good clue as to where to find her marriage record. She was married to John J Keleny, who was my great grandfather. Mary died in a tornado that swept through the county on 23 May 1878. They had no children and my great grandfather later remarried to another Mary, who is my great grandmother. I have submitted a correction for the date of death for Mary Keleny, buried at Saint William Cemetery in Paoli, Wisconsin.

Woodlawn Cemetery
Thank you very much for taking the time to get this headstone photo for me. I don't live locally so this is a big help in my tree research.

I am wondering if you saw another Plumley next to her (Porter Horace Plumley)? Trying to figure out where her 2nd husband was buried and was hoping he might be here with her.

You are the reason why Find A Grave works to well... thank you very much for all you do for this site :)

Peter Peil
Hi, You took two nice pictures for this gentleman whose listing number is 89220556. It looks like he has a wife buried next to him. Is there any way you can find and tell me which of the many Peil's in that cemetery was buried with him? His birth year matches my great grandfather and it would be a help to know the wife's name and birth/death years. Thank you so much for all you do on Find a Grave!

Cornman graves
YOU seem to be on top of things in Wisconsin. My Great Grandfather Samuel and his wife Mary had a daughter Ida who died about 1908-1909 she would have been about 10 years old I think she may be buried near her parents as they lived in The Village of Couderay. on the 1910 census. Sam was a saloon keeper He died in 1914. They also has a daughter in law named Ida Cornman who died in 1912. I think she died in child birth as she had a son born in Feb 1912. I know you have snow and cold weather there so put in on your back burner.. Have a nice day

RE: transfer Wilson
Thanks for asking. John and Betsey (Clifton) Wilson are my great-great grandparents. I am the oldest great grandson of their daughter Edith Mary Wilson Cliff. Great Grandma Cliff talked to me about them often and I encouraged her to write about her parents, siblings and herself before she died in 1967.

The heirlooms are a set of dessert dishes and a baby cradle that they brought over in 1872 from England.

John was blacksmith. They first settled in Glen Haven and a little later in North Andover. Betsey had two brothers and a sister plus her mother who came to Grant County at different times. Her father died in England. I have some old English coins and cast a iron piggy bank from her brother Enos Clifton of Bagley

I've been to Little Grant Cemetery often - a fantastic view. About 1/2 of those buried there are relatives. Since I joined findagrave last December I had started doing some of the tombstones in the cemetery, but you did the remainder before I could finish this fall. I am pretty much the only historian in the extended families.

Thanks for your consideration.

Greetings from Switzerlan. What a great surprise to find Catharina Küng Benkert's dates in Washington Twp, Green County, Wisconsin. I am presently visiting my cousin in Switzerland and we are doing research for a Küng family history. The old homes where the Küngs and the Benkerts lived are within a twenty minute drive from where I'm staying.
Thanks for your great work.

RE: MIKE????
Both are correct. The original spelling of the surname is MAIK, changed to MIKE by some members of the family. So we have older generations spelling it Maik, the next generation Mike, and still others keeping the original spelling.
