RE: Laurel Alice Beaton Stenson
I also took a photo of the adjacent marker for Eric A Stenson (1916 - 1984). Let me know if you'd like me to send it along; I don't find a Findagrave memorial for him.

Bert Quimby
One other thing I can add here for Gail is that I remember as a young boy going to the Rodeo's with my grandparents Fred Merritt and Ella Quimby Merritt there in Oklahoma to watch who I am sure was Bert Quimby ride. As I recall he was very good.

RE: Brazil Quimby
Hi Darien, after I sent my first message I realized I had made a mistake about Bert being Gail's father, I had meant Grandfather. At one time I had Uncle Bert's Obituary but somewhere along the line I lost it but I think I could get it back through another 1st Cousin (Quimby) that does family research with me. When you contact Gail you may tell her that she has 2 Cousin's that would sure like to hear from her. My Cousin Lee and I have gotten very close over the years we have done family research together and would be glad to share our info.

RE: Brazil Quimby
If Gail is interested in Nellie (Lena) Glen"s family she must be Bert Quimby's Daughter since Nellie was Bert"s wife. I have pictures but you would have seen those on the Memorial Sites. If Brazil was her G-Grandfather then we would be Cousins. Gail may find it interesting to know that the Quimby family knew and visited with some of the well known Outlaws of the old west. I will add a small section taken from a book that mentioned my Grandmother. As for information on the Glen family I would have to search back through my records, but I don't remember much of anything.


This following information came from a book written about Oklahoma history and its early families. The story was donated by my Grandmothers Brother Howard Quimby and was written in his exact words. The section I am going to add here is just a small part of the Quimby Family history from the book. My Grandmother' was the girl Ella mentioned in the story.

My family and my wife's family had much in common. Like all the families around Ingalls (Oklahoma), we knew the Doolins. We just thought of them as we would any neighbors. They ate dinner with us several times. I was very small. but I remember them telling me that my sister Ella (Grandma), just a kid, used to ride on the horse with doolin. Of course the folks knew they were outlaws, but they were not afraid, so she was allowed to go horse back riding with them on occasion. They always wore guns though, but in some ways they were as good as anyone.
Frank and Jesse James, and the Dalton gang came to our house once. I never heard of them hurting a neighbor. The Dalton's would take a farmer's saddle horse, if their own horse was stove up. The'd just take the saddle off and leave their tired horse which was a good horse, just worn out.
Once Frank and Jesse James ate dinner when they were riding through. The folks didn't know who they were until they got through and then they told the folks. It was simply customary to invite a neighbor or stranger to eat at meal time.

RE: Charles Richardson
I have several photographs of Charles that were in an old Family Album of my grandpa's grandmother. She was a sister of Charles.
I have been trying to locate a male Richardson cousin in order to use genetic genealogy to help us learn more about our Richardson ancestors in Scotland. Are you in contact with any of our Richardson cousins who qualify? Can I assume that you are also a Richardson cousin?

RE: Sara Peterson
I sat down with Fred Peterson, the city clerk at Marquette and we went through his cemetery records but did not find Sarah Svensdotter Peterson (or her husband, Johan) listed in any of the cemeteries around Marquette. I had previously walked the entire Elim Lutheran Church Cemetery and did not find a stone for her. If she was buried there at one time, it's possible she may have been moved to another cemetery at some point. Or she just may be in some other cemetery, such as at Lindsborg or McPherson. My husband's great-grandfather was not buried in the small town cemetery near where they had lived for many years and where many other family members were buried, but was instead buried in the county seat over 20 miles away. We have no idea why. I'm sorry I couldn't help. You might check with the Lindsborg City Clerk or the McPherson City Clerk or McPherson County Clerk and see if they have any records for her.

RE: Sara Peterson
I just looked at the Find-A-Grave listing for Sara Stena Peterson, wife of Swan, and there is a photo of her gravestone on there. She was born Jan.1, 1838 and died Oct. 1, 1910. The other Sara Peterson, born Ma4. 22, 1828 in Sweden and died Feb. 7, 1902. Her husband was Johan Magnus Peterson, and her parents were Sven Holmberg and Maria Catharina Nilsdotter. All of this is from the Find-A-Grave listing. And in the index she is listed as Sarah Svensdotter Peterson. It's highly possible there may be a stone for her and I missed it. Fred, at the City office, helped me out by finding where some other stones were in that cemetery, so I will try him on this one.

RE: Sara Peterson
Let me go back and check again, because I see there are 2 Sara (Sarah) Petersons listed on Find-A-Grave. And I think I can still get a better picture if Sara, the wife of Swan, is the correct one. I will go talk to Fred at the City Office and we will double check the records.

Sarah Peterson
The only Sara Peterson in the Elim Lutheran Church Cemetery in Marquette is Sara Stena Peterson, wife of Swan M. Peterson. Is this the Sara for which you are wanting a gravestone photo, because her birth and death years on the stone are different?

I no longer live in the Canyon area, Darien. You might look at the Dreamland Cemetery pages and contact David Sifford, or one of the other great volunteers that still live in that area.
