RE: Head Family of Hecla, SD
I will add pictures for Joseph and Josephine either tonight or tomorrow.

The Twaddles of Hecla
I feel pretty sure I got the Twaddles correct.
They appear to be the children of Bert Twaddle.

Head Family of Hecla, SD
I was in Hecla today fulfilling requests for Find A Grave (of course).
There were two requests for Unknown Heads.
One request gave no dates. Based on what I found I think I correctly fulfilled that request.
These is a second request for an Unknown Head who passed away in 1954.
But here's what I found. A grave marker for both Joseph and Josephine Head who both were born and died on August 22, 1954.
So do you think I found this Unknown Head and maybe should this Memorial Page have the first name changed a second Page added for the other baby? I think so.
If you agree I will let you do the corrections. I will add the photos when you are finished. Just let me know.
If you disagree I will add Memorial Pages for Joseph and Josephine.
I will await your reply.

RE: Margaret Ludwig

Slowly but surely I am trying to put my family tree together, which includes computerizing 45 years of handwritten notes. For over 26 years, I was able to spend most of my lunch hours at the Pennsylvania State Archives and Pennsylvania State Library.

I do have the following:
familysearch "Minnesota, Deaths and Burials, 1835-1990": Kate V. Keatley, d. February 19,
1944, age 87, Minneapolis, Hennepin, Minnesota, father Harrison S. Ludwig, mother Margaret
Greiner, spouse John H. Keatley

Thank you very much,
David L. Klees

Arthur Arendal Hanson
I am requesting transfer of the memorial page for my Great-Granduncle, Arthur Arendal Hanson #107547779 and my contributor number is #15879681. I have more photos besides the two I've already posted of my Hanson family. Arthur was the older brother of my maternal grandfather, Robert Arendal Hanson and their sister, Elizabeth Arendal Hanson and half brother to James Roth Hanson who was born to their father's 3rd marriage. I'm getting all their family pages connected as well.

RE: Bob Stanek memorial # 138267914
Thanks for the unexpected transfer. I'll see if anything else could be added. I don't have a photo of him in his official regalia, but I'll ask some of his friends if they do.

RE: Bob Stanek memorial # 138267914
Yes, I wrote the bio-sketch. Bob was a close friend of mine for many years.

Regarding waiting for updates, you had accepted the dates / location almost immediately. I wanted to make sure my other update didn't go into your trash (where I have found some Find A Grave updates for EDITS). You had also answered some other wall posts after I sent the update, so I knew you were active.

Thanks for attending to this.

Best regards,

Robert Chudek, Director

Will you be adding it?

Kate Serr
The tombstone for Kate Serr is indeed very interesting. There are a few more unique stones n that cemetery.

I looked for a stone for a child for that family and could not locate anything.

George Wescott

Thanks for catching that. As you can see from the previous message sometimes one hand doesn't know what the other one does.
I have to thank you for all the work you do on here. I haven't lived in SD since third grade (many years ago) so I don't have access to the cemeteries there and I really appreciate anyone who posts on here with long gone family and friends.
I also will transfer nearly everyone I have added, so if there are any memorials you want transferred just let me know.

RE: David Heckenlaible
Truth of it is, I had a photo of David and his wife, and thought it should be posted. I don't think I actually requested a transfer, but I'm delighted to have it.
I just wish that some other folks from whom I HAVE requested transfers, would respond as promptly as you did! For some, I've been waiting for MONTHS, and I haven't had time to go back to FindaGrave and say, "Hey! What happened?!"
