RE: Petersons
Hi Abbe,

I'm not sure I understand your request. Would you like me to transfer these memorials to you? I am not related to this family at all, I just made the memorials.

Happy to do it...a beautiful little country cemetery with great fall color. I also added photo for Mark A. Moneysmith. Family marker contains other names but they need attention which I will not often undertake.

May have found Alma Drake's first husband
I have done a lot of research on the Mobergs trying to figure out which one might have been Alma's first husband. I have uncovered quite a bit and think Alma's first husband was Gustaf Ralph Moberg killed by a logging train in 1911, married, aged 20. Check all of this out at Memorial 94471589.

RE: Mary Pasquariello
Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. Thanks for the message. I think I'll just wait a while longer and see if a marker is placed.

age problem?
One problem with the theory that Alma was probably a Moberg widow when she married Harry Drake. She was only 24 when she died. She may have married young enough to have married twice.

RE: Donald Furlong Fort Snelling
Hi, I looked again for any other family members buried around Donald and he does not have anyone else buried around him. Hope this helps.

RE: found Alma's husband
I was wondering the same thing. Either Moberg was her previous married name or middle name while a maiden.

I went back to the cemetery to double check the obelisk next to Alma and also went to the city clerk's office. With the assistance of the photo for Kari at Memorial 101283238, it was easier to read the obelisk. Alma is definitely buried next to Kari Hoff (only one foot away), so I think Kari was her grandmother.

There are three Hoffs buried in Block 26 but there is only one Hoff stone still standing, and that is for Kari.

There is also a very small worn-out stone with "Moder" on the top (I thought it was Moberg but I was wrong). "Moder" is Swedish for mother.

So I would be comfortable saying Alma was a Hoff. As to the name Moberg, well, this would require further research of course.

I guess this is all I can do at this point. If you would like me to research to see if Alma was married to a Moberg, I can see what I can do.

See memorial 110795079 for Mary Hoff, mother of Alma (Mrs. Harry Drake). There is an obit there. Smile.

RE: Found your email addy
Found another link...

1905 WI State Census has Alma Hoff aged 13 living in household of John and Mary Hoff in Hayward.

So why does her stone say Moberg as maiden name????

RE: Thank you!
Hi Abbe, I finally had a chance to get to the Hayward Greenwood Cemetery. It started raining very hard the minute I got there, so I went to the city clerk's office to get all the Drake records. Please send me an email at with your email address so I can send you the page from their book showing all the Drakes buried at the cemetery.

I regret to let you know that according to their records, Alma Drake is the only Drake there in that block, 26. Nonetheless I went there to check out the other stones in her block. Her stone is right (about six inches) next to an obelisk which is unreadable. But about three feet to the right of the obelisk is a small stone showing "Moberg" on the top, so it appears she was buried in her Moberg family plot.

In 1917 and 1918 there was a massive influenza epidemic, killing thousands of people. The city clerk explained that there were so many deaths in Hayward that many graves were left unmarked. Sometimes the relatives did the burying themselves, paying only $5.00. They would come to the office to ask where there were vacant gravesites and then sometimes not. So it was very chaotic then.

I notice from the memorials here that Thurman and Alma died in 1918. Alma was very young, so it is likely her husband left town to marry again, never to return.

I am sure you already looked the Drakes up in the 1910 Federal Census for Hayward, WI. There was a Sherman Drake boarding with Fred and Augusta Drake. He was born in 1888 so he was of the right age to have been Alma's husband. You may want to take a closer look at this guy.

I have added a few more Drake memorials, and please feel free to ask me to transfer them to you. If you like, I can go back to take photos of those stones so to get their dates and hopefully relationships to others.

RE: Drakes
Hi, so this explains your reason for the photos. It is a good reason. Sure, I will be glad to go and check the site.

When I take a photo for a certain name, it is my policy to take photos of the same name in the immediate area and explain the location such as Jane Doe is immediate to the left of John Doe. This is how I invest my time when fulfilling a specific photo request.

Hopefully I will be able to help you find the husband. You should be hearing from me this week.
