Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in southwestern Minnesota and now live in the Twin Cities.

My wife introduced me to genealogy in 1998. Since then I've discovered a little Scottish in my otherwise Norwegian and German ancestry.

The cemeteries of Rock County, Minnesota (Maplewood, St. Catherine's Catholic and Memory Gardens also known as Restlawn Memorial Gardens, and Luverne Memorial Gardens) are of particular interest to me.

My goal is to keep families connected to their ancestors through Find A Grave. I will gladly transfer memorials to family members.

Please submit any additions or corrections to me under "EDIT" and "SUGGEST A CORRECTION" on the memorial site.

Osmuns in Beaver Valley Cemetery
Thanks so very much for adding the memorials and photos for the Osmun family in Beaver Valley Cemetery.

I'm helping a friend research her family & she'll be so happy to know there are photos she can see of their resting places!

Keep up the wonderful work!

RE: Alice Larsen
HI Greg

Thanks for the info., I did find it after you pointed it out to me. I had a dau., for Walter Lester Larsen, but didn't know her first name and she seemed to fit perfectly. Plus I believe she was married to a Miller and they had a son & daughter. So far all of their first names are unknown at this point. Time will tell.

Now it dawned on me what the heck I was talking about. On your record for William Wright(Wellington "William" Arthur Wright(buried in Maplewood Cemetery #57167295)you have, on his first wife, Margaret Robinson that she died bef 1920. She didn't die until 18 Jul 1934.(see Find A Grave Memorial #140608483) Maybe that would explain it better.
Hope this makes some kind of sense.

RE: Margaret Robinson Memorial
You are absolutely correct. Guess my brain was in 5th gear when I sent the message. I'm so sorry.

RE: An Illustrated History of the Counties of Rock & Pipestone Minnesota.

Holy Thanksgiving, what a wonderful gift. That would be my great grandfather. I could never find anything telling me what Great Grandma Carrie's maiden name ACTUALLY was. I have been using Oldness which probably is Olson in Norwegian. My husband and I visiting LUVERNE, HARDWICK & PIPESTONE a couple of years ago but I didn't find out until after the trip from an old neighbor out there where their homestead was....even though we had driven right past it a couple of times. I was just sick after I found out. We loved the area. My father was Robert H. Hill (1921-1993), son of Amanda, their daughter and her cousin Henry F. Hill, son of Henrich & Bertha (Lenz) Hill. Yup, I am a Hill from both ends. I did get a copy of a picture of the homestead from a cousin.
Thanks so much and I will add it to his bio. You are an angel.

RE: Harry H Marxen
Thanks! I have read some public messages for several contributors and noticed that there was some kind of problem with photo association to memorials on the Find A Grave website, but it is left to contributors to sort it out. Good of you to do so.

Hi! The photo you posted on memorial #54549410 is incorrect and should be removed.

Perhaps you still have the correct photo?
