Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my family history since about 2004, but have more recently begun using Find A Grave. I am excited by the possibilities Find A Grave offers for sharing information and making new discoveries. Surnames I am working on in particular are Ripke, Nehring, Anderson, Hubbard, Brewer, Brown, Wright, Scharff, Rahn, Carter, Robbins, Bowker and Johnson.

I have documented several Hawaiian cemeteries while vacationing. I have no further information on any of those memorials. I am happy to add information to these Hawaiian memorials, or transfer memorials to you, if you are related.

It was a mistake. Here is the database I looked up. I was thinking it was her maiden name but it was her husband's first name. Thanks for the correction.

Hughes, Agnes Elizabeth(William) 06-13-1905 04-27-1998 d/o Thomas & Emma Hintz Hughes.

Thanks so much for the headstone photos for Benjamin and Kathy Cole. That helps to fill-in information for a 2nd great uncle.

RE: Svante M Carlson memorial
Hi Kathy
It´s a long story.
First I can tell you that Svante M was born in a little village called Urshult in Unnaryd parish. There is a problem in Find A Grave - You can´t enclose more than a parish.
I found Svante when I looked for two emigrants from Grysshult in Unnaryd parish - Nils Oskar Johansson and his sister Anna Linnea. They emigrated 1923 and they travelled to their Uncle Svante Carlson in Boyd,MN. NY passenger list.
I´m a Little related to Nils Oskar but just very Little. I live about 30 km from Unnaryd so it´s rather easy to find people there. Just ask if you need anything.

Thanks for your groundwork (again) on the memorial for my great-great grandfather, William H. Brewer. It's appreciated. Would it be possible to transfer his memorial to me?

Hi Kathy,
I entered the record from a list of burials that I received from the county home. It was typed but I believe it was transcribed from a hand written ledger. I entered everyone on the list because I had a great deal of difficulty getting the information since the home is now closed or renamed, I really don't remember now. If you would like a copy of the list I would be more than happy to send it to you. You can contact me on Findagrave or my email is: Hope this is the person you are looking for.
