OOPS - accidentally got two copies of this memorial for Homer Jones in Lakeview Cemeter - Blackduck. Want to remove one - the are exactly the same. How about removing this one: # 113275171. I was there taking pictures today and am adding them now to findagrave.
Thank you, Ceceila!

Barry Curb, #114344112
Thank you Cecelia, for the editing and the linking of this memorial to those of his parents. In that, I presume, you are in the Bemidji area, do you have any information on "Minnie Louise Curb"? MHS lists her as passing away on 24 May 1985 in Beltrami Co., MN. She is the mother of "Cyril E. Curb, #33274627", also listed on Find-A-Grave as "TSgt Cyril E. Curb, #56288946". I have been looking for an obituary for Minnie and just cannot seem to find one. Any suggestions or help would really be appreciated. Best Wishes.

What a fantastic article about his death! Great information to pass on - thank you so much for sharing this. I would like to know more about the source of this article. Are there a lot of old books, newspapers, etc. in Bemidji for researching this kind of history?

Note the stone in Fairview with the Ch spelling. I have already transferred his record to Maureen so you need to ask her to add your information to the Ch entry being the records are supposed to be exactly what is on the stone. A note about the alternative spelling (from a newspaper?) would be great for following generations who know less about folks from the "old country." Thanks, Grace

Dorsey at Wildwood Cemetery
I was in Pillager MN today and took photos of Agnes and Edward Dorsey's graves. They are in Wildwood Cemetery not Pillager Cemetery. Can you make this change?

Quiring Union Cemetery
I very much appreciate the information for updates to those buried in this cemetery. I am in the process of researching these people as well through Is some of this info available through local (Beltrami County) sources? You may have seen the photos I added to both Capernaum and Quiring Union Cemetery on their finagrave sites. I was told there are more graves at Quiring that no longer have markers. I hope to discover who they are so I can add them to the website.
