Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have worked on several trees since 2004. I really appreciate all the information I find from others and just wanted to 'play it forward.' Please don't hesitate to suggest corrections, changes or additions! I will gladly transfer any memorials as well ..I would love to have ALL of them claimed by their families!

I believe that the marker is the final word. As an example: if Mr. Smith wanted William Smith on his marker he would have put it there. If he put Billy Smith, I prefer to not change the memorial. I would be happy to add William James Smith in the bio section if such a request is made.

Nov 2014,,,I will be without wifi for the winter. Edits will be automatically accepted but it takes a while. I will check messages when I am able. See you in the spring!

RE: Wonderful
God Bless you, Elaine for all your help. I am fortunate to have found you. I think there are a couple others. I will find the information and let you know.

RE: Anderson's
I could not link the following relatives because although they are buried at the Gardens of Rest Cemetery in Wells, they are not showing up there:

Clara Sophie (Anderson) Wolfgram: 9/4/1897 - 2/2/1980 and her husband Frederick Wolfgram, 6/24/1897 - 2/1976.

Anna Rosalie (Anderson) Erickson: 3/8/1886 - 12/19/1948. She could have gone by Rose Anna. Her husband's name was John Erickson.

If you could help with this, that would be great! The other Anderson's that you mentioned are not related.

RE: Unknown Anderson
Hello Elaine, I was so happy to be able to give this young man back his name and honor him for his service to our country. I have had old genealogical files for years, but never knew I could really do anything with them. Now, I am going to link as many ancestors as I can. I am also going to try to find a date of death for Gus. Thank you for all the hard work you have done for Bark River Cemetery. Are there still some graves left that have not been identified?

RE: Phidelia N Hall Bentley
I was trying to add links to her parents and when I entered that info, I noticed that the spouse info (which is correct) was already there. I've had error messages in the past when I attempted to do the very same thing and was told that the spouse had already been linked so I blanked him out. James Bentley was the spouse of Phidelia Hall and Calvin Hall and Nancy Wilder were her parents. Sorry for the confusion.

RE: Seaman VS Pine Ridge
Hi Elaine! I ended up staying out of both cemeteries. They are separate. The records are so messed up. I have found many people in both cemeteries that I quit working on them. I just didn't know what was true. Happy Holidays! Rosalie

I put the son into Seaman's along with the mother. Not sure which cemetery they are in..must be close to the line between the two cemeteries.

Seaman's started out as a small private family cemetery but the city took it over after the family had died out and it was unattended for a great long time. If you are there and you see a brush area that is impassable...that is part of Seamans and what the whole Seaman Cemetery looked like about ten years ago.

seamans cemetery
oops sorry about that first message...big fingers I guess.

Sorry I can not tell the difference from the two cemeteries either. It appears to be just one when you visit it. There is a small wooden sign on a tree about 60 feet southeast from Pine Ridge's metal shed that says "Seamans" that is apparently the divide line but the line itself is anyone's guess. I tried to use death certificates and obits as much as possible.

I also tried to avoid duplicates so if any of those duplicates were mine please just let me know so I can delete mine, regardless of weather they were the originals or not.

True to be told I avoid doing that cemetery as much as possible. At one point I was ready to delete every memorial I made for the two cemeteries. Too many, way too many, ANGRY people kept insisting that I had people in wrong cemetery. Some cemetery names I did change because "family should know" but when a person is over next to the Civil War area that is definitely Pine Ridge. And when a person is way over to the new areas being cleaned... that is Seaman's. I think that when people were buried there a long time ago that the two cemeteries were just called whatever the family called it because they thought of it as one cemetery.

Also there was a new group that was cleaning Seaman's. They did not have a sign up yet but they said they were going to get one at the Seaman's new drive that they were working on. I do not know if it is there or not I said I am avoiding any more work at that cemetery.
