Hi Carrie,
I have kept your msg from a year ago and read it often. I have hit a brick wall with my death information and a cemetery location on my GGGrandfather...John Darwin. His wife was Selinda LaPorte Darwin and they immigrated from Canada. The last I knew of them he was abt 82 living in Iron River WI. I can't find either a death cert (cuz I don't know when or where he died) or where they could be buried. If you ever run across anything on them, PLEASE let me know.
Thanks and Blessings to You!

Nelson family
I am trying to obtain more info about the Nelsons in Grand View Cemetery and their link to the Nels Nelson descendants on Madeline Island. I'm also trying to locate other members of the Nelson family that settled in southern Wisconsin. Martin Nelson (interred at Grand View) was Nels' brother. If there is an obituary for Martin, it may help identify additional ancestors and kin.

Pvt Richard P. Schlies
Pvt Richard P. Schlies was a soldier in Company E 26th Infantry Regiment 1st Infantry Division. He was killed on 4 August in Sicily. Private Schlies was buried in the temporary American GELA Cemetery in grave F-62-735. After the war his remains were repatriated and buried in the Union Cemetery in Mellen, Wisconsin.

Over 1,200 men and women were buried in the Gela Cemetery between 1943-1947. I am writing a book about the GELA cemetery and want to include the picture you took of his grave. Can I have your permission, of course you will be credited and notified when the book will be finished next year (2013)

thank you

Memories of Marjorie - Drummond book, pg 377-380
Hi Carrie,

I found my mother's article in the Drummond Centennial book on pages 377-380. (always loved the story about Vesperman.) I have kept her hand-written article because that trip to Drummond she and Daddy made was her last big trip. She died April 11, 1983 with lung cancer and was still recuperating from having most of one lung removed when they made the trip to Drummond. But, she wanted to be there so badly to see everyone.
Going thru the book was a walk thru the past for me also even tho I grew up in Grandview. There were so many names that are family and many friends my parents talked about from their days in Drummond. The photos are so precious to me.
I will go thru the Grandview book next.

RE: Centenial books
Hi Carrie,

Don't worry about the timing of our messages. 100 years+ have passed in our common history so what's another 1 or 2 years. Oh My Goodness!! You've got me on which book. I'll check and get back with you as I do have both books.
When I get back home to TX I'll go thru my old pictures and find the one I know I have of the Darwin house in Grandview. My Grandpa Joe Darwin raised his kids in that house but had moved to a smaller house down by Dookie and Hoot Darwin by the time I was born. I know I have it! There was a garage on the right side of the house much closer to the road. I remember Daddy painting cars in this garage. I also remember the stairway being on the far left side of the house. There was a circle driveway out front. Wouldn't that be something!!!!

More later,

Would you have any more information on Thomas Stanton? He was my grandmother's cousin and I do not have any information on him or his wife.

Thank you,

RE: Centenial books
Yes I have two of the Grandview books (mine and my Dad's). Both my mother and dad went to high school in Drummond. My mother wrote a great article that was published in the book...her name was Marjorie M. (Beck) Darwin. Her father was Herman F. Beck who owned a farm in Drummond and later bought a farm and moved to SW of Ashland on the road that goes into Benoit. You'll have to look up my mom's story. When we lived in Grandview, we lived in the house that belonged to Joe Darwin on the main highway right across from the school. We moved from Grandview when I was 3rd grade but I still have fond memories of playing with all my Darwin cousins.
Small world isn't it.

I'm confused. You asked for a transfer of your grandmother "Busha", but the memorial is for a William, with a gentlemans picture.
Please help me out,

Thank you so much for the photo of my paternal grandmother. She is the mother of 14 children - one being my father, Raymond George Darwin. Again, I can't tell you how much I appreciate your kind gesture.

Photo request - Joe Darwin

I can't thank you enough for taking the tombstone photo of my paternal grandfather Joseph Darwin. This means more than I can ever say, and I'm etenally greatful. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
Your last name is very familiar to me as Bob Nelson and Don Nelson both moved to Midland MI in the early 1950s around the same time we moved there. Don't know if you're related to them or not. I have only been back to Grandview once since then (in 1984 for the Centenial), and I wasn't into genealogy back then.

May God Bless You Richly for this kindness!
