Bernadette Koch Cont'd
Wow Leslie, you are something! Yes a pictue of the general area is better than nothing for Bernadette. My whole family is so excited that I found her. After all , all we had ever heard was that G & G had had a little girl before my Dad was ever born but she died as a baby and her name was Bernadette. The old Aunts and my cousins are congratulating me on the find. Anyway her parents (and my grandparents) don't have a Find A Grave page. It seems St. Marys and another cemetery have joined together and I wrote them so I know where my Grandparents are buried - St. Mary's on Chicago Ave and I had my sister go take their gravesite pictures there but they have never officially been added to Find a Grave's site as far as I know- Maybe you could tell me how this could be added? Their information is as follows -
St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery - 5503 Chicago Ave S, Mpls, MN - Albert Koch Born July 2, 1884 - Dec 12, 1963 and wife Theodora (Dora) Koch (maiden name Novak) Grave 1 and 2, Lot 13, Block A , Section 1.

Bernadette Koch Unfound Marker
Dear Leslie,
Thank you for being a volunteer for taking photo's of graves, specifically for St. Anthony's Cemetery. Most of all,thank you for trying to find a marker for what would have been my Aunt even though she died at 10 days old, Bernadette Koch. It isn't really a surprise you couldn't find the marker in Plot-Block 2 to take a picture of but it would have been nice to have. Having been raised in Minnesota myself, and knowing she died on March 1, 1919 it may have been difficult to bury her in the dead of winter. Also, her parents Albert and Dora had 3 other young children at home to raise and there might not have been much money to provide a large marker at the cemetery.

Joachim Tourville from Quebec
My interest is in the Joachim Tourville family specifically but I've had to document the many extended families in order to finally find info on my Joachim. It was a surprise to find him in Minneapolis initially as I suspected he would have moved his family to the New England states as many Quebecois did in the mid-late 1800's. I'm not sure there's anything left in Minneapolis for me to find online. I appreciate your offer to help. Perhaps the local historical society has local history anecdotes on his family. If you know of other resources, let me know. Again, thank you! And thank you for being meticulous with your cemetery records.

Delia Possion 1849 - 1882
You can find her death record in FamilySearch LDS under the name Dahlia Peisson. She is a daughter of Joachim Tourville (although it's hard to tell from the LDS entry!). She was wife of Zéphirin Poisson who anglicized his name to Fred Fish at some point.

RE: Tourville at St Anthony
Joachim Tourville is the father of Octavie Tourville Labelle, also buried in the same cemetery. Are you a relative? I've been searching for his death record for YEARS!! I found him in the LDS database Minnesota Death Records 1866-1916 under the name TINVILLE and also in the LDS database Minnesota Deaths and Burials 1835-1990 under the name TURIDLE. Both are indexes and do not give access to the original document. The bad transcriptions suggest to me that the original handwriting was very poor and that the transcriber had trouble with French names. Note that the Tinville index record has an address of 618 Marshal St for him which matches perfectly with his 1891-92 Minneapolis Directory address. I rest my case!

RE: Frank L Norton
Leslie: We have a burial card for him, he is in the register of burials where the date falls, his sister and her infant child are buried in the same plot as Frank. All with unmarked graves. It would appear his remains were going to be taken back to Canada and were not. Great find on the at article.I have posted it to the pictures as Find A Grave will not post to the bio..thanks so much

RE: Edits (Duquette)
Thank you! Being protective is a VERY good thing. So much misinformation out there. The time and effort you take to keep records straight is commendable - and St. Anthony's is worth it. Take care. Mary.

Carole Margaret Schumm 1934-1937
I want to thank you for finding our cousins stone.We had been to Hillside cemetery five years ago and tried to fine her and were told that she was probably buried in a paupers grave and there would be no headstone and no record.We found that so sad and had a hard time believing that was true, she died of a broken neck from a fall down three steps and was misdiagnosed by doctors at three years old. We are so grateful to know, thanks to you,that it wasn't true. Her cousins Nancy and Barbara

RE: Nary in Minnesota
Sorry for the long delay in replying - just read your message. I don't know if Edward Nary is related to the Nary's in Wright Co. Edward was born in Canada, and the Wright Co. Nary's were from Vermont - could be that the relation goes back to Vermont/Canada, but I can't find it. I checked and found that Edward served as a Private in Co K, 10th Minnesota Inf, mustering in on 13 Aug 1862 and mustering out on 19 Aug 1865. He died 7 May 1882 and a US govt headstone was made for him 25 Aug 1902 for placement in St Anthony of Padua cemetery in Minneapolis. I found an Edward Nary in the 1880 census living in Minneapolis was his father, James Nary, who was born in Ireland. The 1880 census indicates Edward is 30 years old, but this was probably the same edward.
Good luck in your research!

RE: Charlotte Darling
Although, I do not see that Jonathan (written as 'John')L. Darling & William B. Darling are buried at CHC...they do own plots, J.L.: G-16 & Wm B.: G-17...Note: G-16 is where J.L.'s son Harlow, 1848-1849 is buried & Charlotte at G-17..She lived 25+ yrs after the death of Adam & made her way to Port Jefferson....Both sons can be in N.C.

RE: Nary in Minnesota
I have a little info on the Nary family, but nothing on your Edward. If he was born in 1847, he was pretty young to serve in the War.
The grandfather of the Wright Co Nary's was also named Edward - his son was William Wallace Nary, 1832-1894, who settled in Wright Co. Perhaps your Edward was a brother to William. The grandfather, Edward Nary, was born in 1792 in Ireland and died in 1866 in Vermont, where William Wallace was born.
BTW, found Edward's civil war record, which indicates he was born 1844. Also, 1880 census has Edward born in 1850 in Canada, living in Minneapolis, with his father, James Nary. James Nary was born in Ireland, too.
