Thank you for adding the marriage info on Sarah. I am not related and do not know the family. If you know them, you may want to review the bio as I found some info on Sarah and added it to the memorial. I also found some info on husband, Frank, if you are interested.

Lura L. Prather Memorial
I am so amazed that you found that photo of Lura and her mother in a antique shop. Granny Hollis (Elizabeth Jane Pepper Phillips Hollis was my great great grandmother and Lura was my great grand Aunt. I have pictures of Elizabeth with her other daughter Ruth Evie Phillips Thomaston. Thank you for sharing.

RE: Soren and Lena's Stone
That's interesting. Rumor had it that Soren never remarried. If he did remarry, why did his obit not mention anything about it? Did she die before he did?

Thanks for leaving picture and obituary about Soren Sam Hermansen. His wife Lena who tragically died in the flu epidemic was sister to my grandfather Emil. Such a sad story.

RE: McParland photo
My grandfather's brother Fred was married to a Alma Barth. Is this the relation?

McParland photo
Saw the photo you placed on James McParlands memorial of their home in Rushville. My grandfather says the house is still there so I will have to run by the next time I am there visiting my grandmother. Thanks

Brenda, linked Foxes in Monroe IOOF, suspect Raymond is a son also - he's in the same plot

RE: Holzberger card on EBay
Brenda, thanks for pointing that out. For most of my family lines I'd jump on that. However, Andrew wrote a lot of letters, and my mom already has some that he had written to my grandparents.

Thank you so much for the help. You are appreciated. Lisa

LONGTIME STATE RESIDENT DIES IN NURSING HOME: Mrs. Marie Gertrude Hassenpflug, 91 years old, died Monday morning in a nursing home where she had lived for some time. Born October 22, 1859 in Germany, Mrs. Hassenpflug came to New York with her husband, the late C. C. Hassenpflug, when she was 30. Later they came west to Idaho and then to Washington state, where she had lived 55 years. The family lived many years on South Fourth.
Survivors are five daughters Mrs. J. C. (Mamie) McNab of Vancouver, B. C.; Mrs. W. B. (Emma) Martin of Seattle; Mrs. Tom (Charlotte) Setz of Okanogan; Mrs. Lisette Achenbach of Seattle; Mrs. W. B. Young of Wallula and a son C. C. Hassenbach of Okanogan. Mrs. Hassenpflug was a member of the old order, the Sisters of Herman.

I am working on connecting people, and saw that you had posted a lot on this lady, and thought you might not have a copy of the obituary. Lisa

On the photo you have added, you have two of the sons' names switched. I own a copy of this photo and my husband is the grandson of Benton Amos Moore who is on the upper right side. He went by Ben Moore and was the couple's youngest child. Frank would be the second from left, next to Arzelee. Would you please correct the photo id at your earliest convenience. Thank you, Linda

RE: Photo requests at Crystal Lake
If you can call the cemetery office and add the burial plot to your requests, it will be a faster photo. Crystal Lake has over 100,000 burials.

RE: Grave Pic Thanks
Hi- You are very welcome. I am trying to do all of Ripley County that hasnt been done. Thank you for your message.

RE: Lydia N. Sandvick
I'll send the obit via your email as an attachment, if that is ok? I think someone else has a listing for Martin Sandvik, no photo. And since you are doing all the hard work :) you can have the listing. Lydia was my mother-in-law's aunt, I don't think she knew her cousin or uncle, so no relation to me and my husband, who takes all my photos doesn't care one way or the other!

Many thanks!

RE: Lydia N. Sandvick
Success!! Lydia Sandvick buried (space 10, lot 90, Sec D) Lloyd Sandvick (son) buried (space 12, Lot NW 85, Sec.D), and Martin Sandvik (probably mispelled in cemetery records Sandrik?) is buried in (space 11, Lot NW 85, Sec D) Lydia and Martin were divorced.

I have an obit for Lydia if you'd like it, couldn't find one for Lloyd, just a notice that he died.


Added by SSHNield on Jan 16, 2013 10:51 AM

RE: Lydia N. Sandvick
Many, many thanks for checking! :) I wonder where her son and divorced husband are then? Martin Tjerandsen Sandvik's obit (Seattle Times 27 Dec 1948) said he was to be buried in Forest Lawn. Maybe he is with other Tjerandsens or his sister's married families. Hmmm.... I appreciate you taking the trouble to look them up!

Lydia N. Sandvick
Hi Brenda,

Thanks for taking the photo of Lydia Sandvick's headstone! Do you remember if her son, Lloyd Sandvick/Sandvik or her former husband, Martin Tjerandsen Sandvik happened to be in the same vicinity of Forest Lawn?

Per your note: Please delete this memorial. It is a repeat. I just started maintaining the other one. Thanks, Brenda

I would have loved to have made the corrections on my memorial due to that I've entered the orignal on 4-13-2009 and also made a special trip to the cemetery to get the tombstone for my memorial, it would have only have been fair for me for being a volunteer to Find A Grave just like you to have been given a chance I would have been more than happy to transfer the memorial if she is a part of your family. I'm not into how many I can get or how many memorials I can make in a day but that I was also important as a volunteer to Find A Grave to show what I found to share with others.

Sure Brenda, however it is you would do that. Still learning the ropes here. Thanks for the belated welcome too!!

RE: Arzelee's Headstone
It is a very old, worn stone - well, part of a stone - and the only thing readable is the first name, which was Walter. Nothing else is even remotely discernible.

I'm so glad I could make a 90 something year old happy. I was admiring the photo of the Salins. What a great photo of a nice looking couple.
