Bio and Links
Bio Photo Shortly after the Moravian Church in the small town of Aurelia, ND. closed in the early 70's, an association was formed to look after the cemetery.
It was renamed the Aurelia Community Cemetery. I was elected to the board a few years later when one of the original members died. About ten years ago I helped my sister work on our family tree and now when I found Find A Grave, I realized how helpful it could have been.
This information was mostly taken from the tombstones at cemeteries I have visited, with some added from our family tree and ND death index files. I also get information from the Mouse River Loop Genealogy Society, of which I am a member.Most of these cemeteries are located in northwestern North Dakota.
With over 75,000 names in about 675 cemeteries, I'm sure I have made some mistakes. If anyone finds any errors or has more information let me know.I have photos (about 60,000) of the markers of most of the graves added in the last few years. I do not have time to add all these pictures but if someone requests one I will gladly add it if I have one. Please put Find A Grave in subject line.
Most of the obituaries I have added are from local funeral homes or old newspapers with their permission. All pictures that I have added were taken by me personally.

Clarence Dovre #22816773
I read the old newspapers at the Library of Congress website, and today I found a news article about the tragic death of Clarence Dovre in the Ward County Independent (Minot, ND) of 11/16/1916. I have attached a link, should you like to see it.

Sounds good Herb! You must have patience! I was a teacher and always in awe of the bus drivers!

Garrison Cemetery
Hi Herb, I have numerous Biographies that I would like to do on various people in the Garrison Cemetery. How do I do that? Do I go to edit and then write it up for you to do? Thanks for the help on this silly question, Jackie

Catherine Krause Hilsendeger
Hi Herb,

It looks like my grandmother, Catherine, was omitted from this list of children. She was born before Phyllis. She married Joseph Hilsendeger in Malva and they had 7 children. They left Towner and moved to San Francisco. I am Victoria Hilsendeger's son. I can provide more info as needed but right now in typing on my phone.

Best,

Mark Lillie
