John L. Schlief
"Minnesota, State Census, 1895," index and images, FamilySearch ( : accessed 15 June 2012), James L Baker in household of James L Baker, Holding township, Stearns, Minnesota.

I did find James, Sarah and William in the 1895 census at Family Search. I do not find Sarah in Otter Tail County in 1895. We should be able to find Sarah Baker or Sarah Schlief in the 1900 census.

RE: John L. Schlief
Hi Barb: I am so glad to hear from you. My Rootsweb page for James Lewis Baker is at:

I did find them on the 1895 Stearns Co, MN census and they have a son William Baker age 15. I have put that census in a post-em note. If they were married in 1884 that would only be 11 yrs ago, so is this William Baker really William Schlief?

I did find a marriage in Meeker Co, MN:

So if that William Baker is not William Schlief then James Lewis Baker could have had a marriage before he married your Sarah Schlief.

Hi Barb: Would you please share some information with me about John L. Schlief and Sarah Richey? I cannot find them on the 1880 census in Morrison County, Minnesota. Do you know what happened to Sarah after the death of John? Hope to hear from you.

Abigail Has a Stone
Ms McKay, Abigail and Zephaniah's new stones were placed in Marling Cemetery today. I'm not sure if you're aware but Abigail's husband, Isaiah and her father, James are lineage proven Patriots of the American Revolution and the lineage through her parents have been proven through her to the Mayflower.

Abigail Blackford's stone
You had requested a photo. The one that I just posted is her new stone. It is not in the cemetery yet. I am the carver and had just finished carving it. It will be taken and set soon by the family.
FYI, here is my web site:

RE: Ella Crout
I put a note on her memorial about the year being incorrect on the marker. I've photographed several markers that have date mistakes, not to mention misspelled names. One of my relatives died in 1902 but her marker says 1893.

Thanks for letting me know. I've updated Ella's memorial and linked her to Harry.

Lots of spelling mistakes and alternate spellings in these local cemeteries. I guess the illiteracy rate of the times, the Native American, Nordic, French, English,and Spanish language influences played their parts - pronounced one way but with numerous interpretations of how to spell it...
