Caroline Eichley Minsinger
HI, Heidi

I have been working on my tree on ancestry , the John Eichley branch .My problem is that I can only link 8 children to him, Mary 1835,Jacob 1837,Rebecca 1839,Daniel 1841,Fredrick 1843,Conrad 1844, Elizabeth 1847 and Ellen

I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO FIND ANY TIE TO Caroline Eichley Minsinger in my cemetery books or History Of MARSHALL TOWNSHIP which includes a section on the Eichley (Ickley) family
I would appreciate any info you can provide on where the link (Find A Grave) that appears comes from.

Charles Edwin Minsinger (1878-1959)
Back in August of 2011 you posted an amazing photo of Charles Edwin Minsinger. I was hoping you would be able to read what each of his medals are as that is history too. I tried to enlarge but it was just too grainy.

I you are related to the Minsinger family then we are related. I am down the Fowler line, Harriet Blaine Minsinger Fowler (1884-1932) was married to John L Fowler (1880 - 1956). Their son Allen Cordell Fowler (1906-1982) is my Great-Grandfather.

Thank you for all the time you have taken to photograph so many graves.

Hey Heidi, my great, great, great, great grandfather is Gottlieb Min singer. I am just beginning this journey into the past and would love to get any info you have on our family.

Also, it's a small world my sister in law lives in Hood River. I just signed up on here to reach out to you so I'm not too sure how this works.

RE: Hilma Marie Swenson
Hi Heidi;
I think I can really help you. I finally looked up what information I had. Hilma Marie Swenson was born 9-23-1882 in Otisco Township, Waseca County, MN and died 4-29-1925 in Oregon. She was married to Peter Axel Johnson. She is the daughter of August Swenson and maria Lovisa Peterson. Does any of this ring any bells.

August and Rena Hedlund of Portland
Hello Heidi - You have done impressive work here. I am related to Julia Hedlund Minsinger's mother, Rena (Norwegian: Gurine) Versland Hedlund, who was born in Kvinesdal, Norway, in 1875. Rena was my grandmother's aunt and Julia (with sisters Mathilda and Clara) was her cousin. I know very little about the Hedlund-Minsinger family and would appreciate any further information. Have tons of documentation on the Norwegian side (going back several hundred years), if you are interested. If you'd like to call me, I'm in the Portland (Dex) phone book. Sincerely, T. Birnie

RE: Helen Goforth photo
Sorry for the delay. I added Jessie's picture to Helen's page. According to the cemetery people it is the same plot as Jessie's and that's the caption I put.

Hi Heidi ~ Just wanted you to know that I got a photograph of Frederick Legler's headstone & posted it on his page. :)

RE: Erik Karnath headstone
You are welcome. When I checked on his location I was told that the stone had just been placed recently.
I saw bt the datee that he passed almost two years ago so the timimg was good for your request.
Im am sorry for some of the glare as it was overcast but that stone is almost like a mirror.

Eric Scott
Elizabeth Ann Kinney
Just thought you might like to know that I sent a request to the Idaho Falls Family History Library asking them to check the date of death for Elizabeth Ann Kinney. I'm guessing that was the source for the date on her memorial (51711246). The headstone says she died in 1931, which agrees with the Idaho Death Records database on the same website ( as the Eastern Idaho Death Records database.
