RE: Susan Rawson Bailey Wuest Wentzy
thanks, Dave! I sent a whole bunch of info to my husband's siblings with the new picture plus a couple of newspaper clippings to clear up the name, uncle, stepfather, etc., chaos!

I personally just like to know where people have been laid to rest. I wish i had checked this out just two weeks earlier. We were in Minneapolis in late April. I would have gone to the cemetery myself.

Did I tell you that we went to Annandale where I have four great-grandparents buried? Some of the gravestones were so covered with grass that we had to go to the hardware store and get tools and gloves and do some major work. All better now!

Susan Rawson Bailey Wuest Wentzy
Dear Dave,
Thank you SO MUCH for taking the picture of my husband's great-grandmother's gravestone! I don't know if I neglected to mention that her first husband, the father of her two girls, is buried in the same cemetery? His name is

Theodore C Wuest
1864-18 SEP 1899

There is no picture of his gravestone. Could you possibly take one?

She may be buried next to him? Her second husband, her widowed brother-in-law, is buried back in South Dakota. That's Harry Wentzy.

The son of Susan and Harry, Woodrow Paul Wentzy, is buried in Brookings, SD.

Thanks again,
