Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm very much hooked on genealogy. Now that I'm retired I am willing to help others and fill photo requests for my area. This site has been a great help to me in finding information and photos and it's time for me to help others.

I'm currently photographing cemeteries in Hubbard and Eastern Becker county, Minnesota.
During the winter months I have been looking up obituaries to add to memorial pages that appear in the old Park Rapids Enterprise. If you are looking for an obituary you can email me but please make the request during the winter months.

I will add to, change, delete, and Correct any Memorial I've added.
I will be happy to Transfer Memorials according to FAG Guidelines but I will consider other transfers on an individual basis. Please State your relationship when asking for a transfer. I will not transfer Bulk name requests.

Please use the EDIT tab and SAC to ask for a transfer or to have me correct or add information and state your relationship to the person when asking for a transfer.

No need to ask permission if you want to use my photos for ancestry and personal use, but I do appreciate credit given to me for taking them.

Please do not take my photos and upload them to another page on Find a Grave. If you need a photo added to a different page just ask and I will add it.

If you want the Photo's for resale, for profit, permission is denied.

I am Researching these surnames: Reeser/Rieser, Dunham,Curphey,Newell,Lantz,Adams,Sullivan,Lamb,Bentley,Chapin, Wangen,Meisenhelder and Ziegler.

Please don't use chalk, flour, chemicals etc. on markers when taking your grave photos. Overtime these things can all cause damage to a marker.

In the event of my death or my becoming inactive for a long period of time I would like all my memorial pages passed on to my son DR Wangen #47374156.

Adding a Picture
Thank you for adding the information on my father Lloyd Robert Weeks. But a small correction needs to be made he is not buried in California. His ashes were scattered over the Pacific ocean. And I would like to add a Picture of him to the information as well. Can you please let me know how to do that. You can contact me directly via email.

Thank you
Sue Hord

St Matthew's / Butterfield City Cemetery
Hi Joan,

I was down in Butterfield, Minnesota a few weeks ago and took a bunch of pictures of my relatives headstones and posted them to the St. Matthew's page. I just found out today talking to my cousin Mable (Wallem) Olson that our relatives are actually buried in the Butterfield city cemetery. When you drive in the last driveway there everything on the left hand side is St. Matthew's cemetery, everything on the right is the Butterfield city cemetery. That means the Wallem's that you have listed in St Matthew's actually belong in the city cemetery. Just thought you would like to know that. If you would like to transfer them to me I would gladly take care of them, Richard & Taletta are my great-great grandparents and Rosa is my great aunt.

RE: Richardine Sackett Reeser-# 79622853
Richardine Sackett is the sister to my Husband great grandmother. The 3 pictured are Gladys Sackett Stephnes Andrews, Richardine Sackett Reeser, and Bernice Sackett Nelson. Gladys is my husband great grandmother. My Mother-in-law had the pictures. I wish I could figure out who Bernice's husband and children are. I have been stumped on that one. I have some pictures of Bernice too but have not figured out where she is buried. Look forward to hearing from you. I just found her father's headstone on a Billions graves but I don't think that the cemetery that it is listed in is correct. It says it is in North Aurora but I think it might be in Batavia.

RE: Photo
You are welcome very much. It was a very beautiful day on Sunday to walk around the cemetery. I got about half of it photographed. Hopefully soon I can get back there to finish before the weather changes.

Rock Grove Township Gaylords
Hi Joan,

I am a former resident of Nora Springs and am currently a student at North Dakota State University. I'm very much hoping that my final class project for a current Public History course can be about the Gaylord family's impact on Nora Springs. Thank you for all the work you've done here. I wonder if you are related and would have any stories I could use? Please, contact me.

Harry Hitchcock Henrietta Cemetery
Hi Joan ! I was wondering if I could get you to change my Grandfathers death date. He died Jan 26, 1951 not on the 25th. There was a typo in his obituary so it said the 25th. If you need further proof, I can send it.Thanks, Kathy

Ellen South FAG #101852371
I'm taking over management of Marjorie's memorials since she has recently passed away. I don't know what to do about this memorial as I have no info on Ellen South. Maybe she is buried in a nearby cemetery. Let me know if you find further info. Thanks. ~Terry
