Bio and Links
My primary interest is in the family groups I have listed in virtual cemeteries. If you are related to these families, centered in south central Minnesota, I am interested in hearing from you. I do add other cemetery information and take photos as I have the opportunity.

RE: William Herman Rudolph
Hi Joanne. Regarding your message:

I'll process your edit, but what is your source that William was born in Janesville? I haven't checked birthplaces for all the children, but some were born on the family farm in Alton Township - possibly all were.

This info was from the WWII draft registration card that he filled out in Apr 1942 (the so-called "old man's draft"). I've been indexing these records for and, when I have time, I sometimes check on FG to see if I can provide additional information from those original records. Unfortunately I've already returned that batch of records otherwise I could provide you a copy for your files. At some point, hopefully soon, his record will be available for download from the site.

Hope this helps,

RE: Maria Endebrok Koester the cemeteries mixed up...the one we found so difficult (because of the sunken footstones)...was the St.Lawrence Cemetery in Faribault, MN. It's a beautiful cemetery...have many connected ancestors buried there...

Actually, the Lakewood Cemetery (in Hastings) wasn't that bad...took at least six trips....but, just did a section at a time. It is such an interesting much history...Civil War vet etc...

We were pretty careful....don't think we missed any stones....but, you never know..

It's such a beautiful location....enjoyed photographing Lakeside..felt like, we did our small part to preserve history...

RE: Maria Endebrok Koester
Glad to help...

Want to go back and redo some pictures....later this year...

That was the most difficult cemetery to many foot stones had sunk deep in the ground...sure there are some that we missed...

Good luck with your research...

RE: Elmer Rudolph Clemetson
Bonnie Schaffer and I are working on the West Freeborn Lutheran Cemetery.
We are been working for over a year and we are down to the few last people that we have no stone for , that I know of?
Bonnie got permission to look at the West Freeborn church records that date back until 1880.
This is what she found:
Elmer Rudolph Clemetson
Birth: December 1,1892
Died: October 22,1918
Father: Even Clemetson
Elmer's death is included in West Freeborn Lutheran Church Records

I checked in the Minnesota Death Records and I could not find him there? So I looked at the date and figured that he might of been in World War I??

So I found his name in the
Soldiers of the Great War in Minnesota
Private: Elmer R. Clemetson-Hartland

I looked him up on Ancestry and I found a family that said that he died in France.?
So I e mailed that person to tell me how they knew this? I have not heard back yet?
So now I am going to e mail Linda Evenson from Albert Lea Historical Museum and see if she can find me a newspaper article? Then maybe we can figure this out?I see that his father and mother are in Lakewood Cemetery. But he has a infant brother Arthur Berhnard Clemetson 1888-1888 buried in West Freeborn Cemetery.
Thanks for all your help.
