Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm very much hooked on genealogy. Now that I'm retired I am willing to help others and fill photo requests for my area. This site has been a great help to me in finding information and photos and it's time for me to help others.

I'm currently photographing cemeteries in Hubbard and Eastern Becker county, Minnesota.
During the winter months I have been looking up obituaries to add to memorial pages. If you are looking for an obituary you can email me but please make the request during the winter months.

I will add to, change, delete, and Correct any Memorial I've added.
I will be happy to Transfer Memorials according to FAG Guidelines but I will consider other transfers on an individual basis. Please State your relationship when asking for a transfer. I will not transfer Bulk name requests.

Please use the EDIT tab and SAC to ask for a transfer or to have me correct or add information and state your relationship to the person when asking for a transfer.

No need to ask permission if you want to use my photos for ancestry and personal use, but I do appreciate credit given to me for taking them.

Please do not take my photos and upload them to another page on Find a Grave. If you need a photo added to a different page just ask and I will add it.

If you want the Photo's for resale, for profit, permission is denied.

I am Researching these surnames: Reeser/Rieser, Dunham,Curphey,Newell,Lantz,Adams,Sullivan,Lamb,Bentley,Chapin, Wangen,Meisenhelder and Ziegler.

Please don't use chalk, flour, chemicals etc. on markers when taking your grave photos. Overtime these things can all cause damage to a marker.

PLEASE,DO NOT use the message board for sending information or transfer requests. That is not what it is for. I WILL NOT MAKE ANY CORRECTIONS, LINKS OR TRANSFERS FROM MESSAGES LEFT ON THE MESSAGE BOARD.

In the event of my death or my becoming inactive for a long period of time I would like all my memorial pages passed on to my son DR Wangen #47374156.

RE: Benjamin Cool
You are welcome.
I shot them on the 14th and someone else did also it seems. Kinda strange, I was up north where I did not have a signal to add them so I was going to add the whole family yesterday when I got home and someone must have been following right behind me and shot the same stones I did. But I have a family group photo of their lot but Find A Grave was down last night, so I will add more to Sam and ALL the other names in the lot as well, so look back at them and there will be an extra one as soon as I label the group shot.

St, Peter Cemetery, Park Rapids
Joan, you took a great photo for the St. Peter cemetery back when, however it is not posted on all of the memorials, specifically the Schoenberger's, could you please add the cemetery photo to Michel and Ann's stones? Perhaps Find A Grave could add the photo to all the current and future stones.
Thanks in advance. Cathy W.

Sawtooth Mountain Cemetery
A friend of mine is buried here and when I am on holiday in a few week I was going to visit the cemetery but can not find it on a map

By any chance can you give me the location of this cemetery? I searched Google maps and everything ells I can think of but can not find the actual location in silver bay.

Thank you

Elsie A Merritt
I was at Lakeview Cemetery in Blackduck today taking photos and, when adding the photos on findagrave, I discovered Elsie A Merritt (#124323742) is a duplicate. Looks like someone else created one before yours. Yours looks great too but one has to go. Do you mind removing this one. Thanks!

Hi, Joan. Do you know if his wife, Nellie (or Helen) is buried with him or not? She remarried Henry Jackson in 1910, and she died in 1916. Have you seen either Henry's or her stone/name? Thanks! Shirley

Roy and Ida Sexton
Hi Joan,
I made a mistake in a submission I made to you for the Saint Matthews Evangelical Lutheran Cemetery in Butterfield. Roy and Ida Sexton were married 14 February 1910 in Des Moines, Polk County, Iowa, I gave you a date of 1909. I just found the official record here ( Their son, Eldon Henry Sexton, married my 1st cousin Eileen Nelson, thats how Roy and Ida (Youngkin) Sexton made it in my family tree.
