Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching family for over 4 years and a new member of Find A Grave. Family line includes; Carpenter, Fairbank(s), Foss, Lane, Nelson, Oothoudt, and Wise. Faribault County of Minnesota is the main area of residence. With the help of newly found "cousins" Marla, Debi, Gail, Donna, Linda, and Elaine, I have been able to add much more information to my family tree and genealogy information.

Please see Find A Grave Memorial# 135877554.
I've been entering burials from Riverside Cemetery in Blue Earth. Thought you might have interest in this.
If you want any transfers, etc you know just to ask.

You have Ida in the North Freeborn Cemetery?
I have her in the West Freeborn Lutheran Cemetery outside of Manchester.
She is in Row 11 Plot 10

Thanks for dealing with all of the suggestions I have had for the Nichols families in your neck of the woods.

RE: Fanny Foss
You are welcome it is amazing how those old New England families stuck together and married a generation or two or three later

Finding the memorials that you have made has added so much to my "burial unknown" that I will never forget you! And then for you to transfer them to me for management....your kindness is greatly appreciated.

RE: Adrienne Lods Photo
Today marked the end of a long family mystery for me, too.
Finally found someone I'd been looking for for years and years. It's a nice feeling.

Lydia and Nellie Oxrieder
Dear Jill,

Words cannot express how very thankful I am for the pictures you took. It is truly such a great gift you have given. Bless your heart.

A little background on the Nellie-she died not too long after her daughter,Lydia.She left behind 4 young children who were all adopted out when their mother died.The youngest was a boy who was adopted by my great Aunt and Uncle(Nellie's husband, Dan's, sister). There is one sister still living and she is 92 years old. She will love these pictures.

Lydia died at age eight when a school boy kicked her in the stomach and she died of internal injuries.

God bless you!
