Elizabeth Chase Cole
Thanks for taking the time to get a better picture for me. I'm not sure why she is in the Garden City Cemetery when her children are in the near by Lake Crystal Cemetery? I have sent photo requests for five or more Cole family members at Lake Crystal. I'm still waiting for someone to locate them before winter weather arrives, so it's easier to locate. If you are near by by Lake Crystal Cemetery, or know another volunteer that would be in the area? I'm looking for her sons Ishmeal Cole 1830-1913, William Henry Cole 1839-1925, Garner M. Cole 1841-1932, Walter D. Cole 1825-1903.

RE: Schleuders at Woodlawn Cem.
My contact address on my Find a Grave profile is the best one to use; I will be checking it periodically as we travel.

RE: Headstone Photo Question
Thank-you, Richard, in clearing up what to me was some what confusing about Earl Strauch's Photo of his NOT having a Maker in the long run. And May I get back to you about all the Strauch's Headstone Photo's and the Question as to weather I wish to take over the Management. See right now I have been so busy with my father on different projects. And on Thursday morning we are going from here where we live very near SeattleTacoma Area, in the town of Enumclaw, WA. And going over to my Fathers side of my family. And to visit my Cousin, Cheryl & Husband Lynn over in Post Falls, Idaho. I is just at 300 miles equal one way. And they have a Very Large Alfalfa Hay Farm. And we are going to get about 10 to 12 Ton's Of Alfalfa Hay from them. We have a Big Ford F350 One ton truck and a 36 foot Goose Neck Trailer. Some what like a 5th Wheel trailer only this is a Flat Bed.
So I will be back home on Saturday Night.
I take Dad over, as I just do not feel well about letting him drive with a load of hay by himself, as he turned 81 this summer. I will get back to you about the Maintain Control of all these folks some time after I return. I hope that this will be OK.
Take Care, Mark Edwin Thomas

RE: Mons Chilgren family photos
Thank you, I did see the other Chilgren memorials you added. I need to do more research, but it is possible this family are kin to my step great grandfather John Chilgren. He came to the U.S. from Sweden via Canada. His son, Edwin Chilgren was an advocate for forests, education, farming, etc. and a legislator in Mn. for many years. He and his family are on Find a Grave as well. A wealth of information is available for him via the newspapers. When only 12 years old Ed drove the local 'school bus', a wagon pulled by farm animals through the wild northern Mn. woods to help rural children obtain an education, carrying a rifle to deter the wolves. He served in the military, and worked in the newspaper industry in the Dakotas and then Little Fork, Mn. He and his wife published The Little Fork (?) newspaper for years. Wish I'd had the chance to meet him, but that didn't happen.
If you want to transfer management of the Chilgren memorials I will happily accept them.

RE: Alexander Volk 111450668... again
Richard, thanks for looking. I thought I'd requested photos for Alice Pettis, but found that I hadn't. I don't s'pose you'll get back that way for a while. Ah, well.

I was at the cemetery about 25 years ago, and I'm pretty sure I found a stone for Alexander, though I can't remember for certain.

Alexander Volk 111450668... again
Richard. I just took a closer look and realized that the posted picture is for Alexander's wife Mary. "Grey Lady" just recently posted another pic for her, but neither of you got Alexander. Weird. Is it possible that Alexander has no stone? Thanks.
