RE: Hi!
Hey, Thanks Jim for remembering me. I really haven't gone anywhere, I'm just slowing down a bit. I hope to get back into it again at the speed that once drove me. Have a great evening.

RE: minneokie
Thanks Jim for the information. It was your sister-in-law by the name of minniokie. I just didn't look at the post very good. I guess, not only is she related to me through the Stephens family, maybe we also connect through our Cherokee ancestors. Will have to find out, and thank you for your help.

Have a good day. Regards, Milton Stephens

Milton A. Stephens
Jim, Do you go by this name??? I received a msg from minneokie about Peter Stephens being born in Pennsylvania. Later research has him being born in Germany, and baptized in Germany before he came to the Colony of Virginia before 1732. I noticed in all of your 23k plus memorials, you have only two with the name of Stephens and you have posted some great photo's on the memorials. I don't know if you ever have seen Dan V. Stephens's book, Stephens Family Genealogies, 1690-1938, published in 1940, but this is what it says about Thomas and Edna Griffin Stephens.

(1170) THOMAS BURTON STEPHENS, son of Andrew J. Stephens (118) and Ala Holford. Born January 14, 1878, in Denton County, Texas. Married January 25, 1918, Edna Griffin.
Muriel, b. 1920, Letha Betty b.1927, Robert Erie b. 1929.

The names and dates are somewhat changed, but I'm sure they are the same people you have listed. Are these your grandparents, by chance????

Andrew Jackson Stephens grandfather was Peter Stephens, Jr. and a brother to my 5th great grandfather, Lawrence Stephens. Looks like we are cousins from way back if Thomas Benton and Edna are your relatives. Anyway, have a nice day. Milton Stephens

RE: Hoarding memorials
No you are wrong they do not want to transfer memorials, at all. And they aren't even their relatives. So you don't know what you are talking about. And in the future you should mind your own business.

Hi Jim!

Thank you for all of this information. Sarah is my great-great grandmother. I loved seeing her picture. May I use it for my family search?

Thank you,

Thanks for the obit, It gave me the impetus to add a bit more information to my gtrea great grandmother's memorial. It must have been a fat finger that entered 1920 instrad of 1910, as I have her death certificate.

Clifford Dawn
At Jardin Montana, 1956, I lived next door to Cliff Dawn and family. Nice people. They had 2 sons living at Los Angeles, CA. Their oldest son was retarded and lived at home, helped his dad falling timber. The two girls were in grade school at Gardner, MT.
I graduated ParkRapids, MN 1956.
Cliff told me that they were from MN so I finally looked up their burials.
These were nice people who helped me more than once.
Thank you for caring for them.

Wow! that's going to take you awhile. I'd be happy to type out the ones that you put on Marjorie's/my memorials. I just finished Diedrich Molter #53771984. Keep plugging away but enjoy the nice weather outside also. Take care.

Their suggestion:
I posted an article relating to his death


I never heard of Wadena before. I had to wonder if it was in WA or OR or somewhere. Wadena is in MN?! Then the news item you found said he died in Park Rapids and that is in Hubbard Co., MN. Boy, howdy, I really had to do some research on this one trying to figure out where the heck he died at but I think I got it right on his page but am not really sure.

I just now came across your photo/logo/memorial tribute on a memorial I posted. (in the "Leave flowers and a note" It's absolutely lovely, & I am wondering if I may use it as well when I come across my own relatives on findagrave?

RE: Frank Bower Memorial
Thanks Jim, but Frank Bower is my grandfather and I have his obit!

Thank you!
Thank you so much, Jim, for your work! My grandpa (John B. Benson) was a volunteer caretaker in the early days for West Lyons Cemetery. He mowed, dug holes, whatever needed to be done. And of course he's buried there, along with other of my relatives. So it was a real blessing to discover your work in getting the information from the cemetery onto this website. Cemeteries are special places, made sacred by the memories of loved ones. But for folks like me who can't actually come visit, it's so lovely to see your work here on the internet. I'm reliving some very precious moments just by seeing their names and headstones. I can't thank you enough.

Someone did a video tour of West Lyons a few years back, and posted it on YouTube: It was kind of fun to watch!
