You have the wrong cemetery listed for my Dad. He is buried at Saint Pauls Church of Christ in Theilman, MN. Just wanted to set the record straight. Thanks for all the work you do for this website. Without people like you, it would be more difficult to search our ancestry.

Hi Tom,
I have recently located my 2x great gradfather's grave. He is a civil war vet. He is located in the Seymour Cemetery, Seymour,Outagamie County
Wisconsin, USA. His name is Christian Miller.

I enjoy searching through your virtual cemetery. Thank you so much for sharing it.

Thank you for uploading the photo of John's gravestone. I doubt if he was a veteran because her was born in 1859. It's hard to find information about him. The dates on his gravestone gave me his birth and death dates for the first time.

I would like to ask for your permission to use that photo (and others you may have taken of gravestones of my ancestors) in my family tree on Because the photographer has a copyright for each photo, I always ask before using a photo on another web site. I will, of course, put your name as the photographer and the web site of the memorial(s) as the source.

Thank you for considering my request,

Thank you so much Tom for finding and photographing her marker for me! It solves a little mystery, as she apparently has two markers, one where she died (and is likely buried) and this one, where the family moved after she died.
Incidently, her father Hiram M. Frisbey was a Civil War veteran, drafted while living in Zumbrow, MN as H.M. Frisbey. He is the brother of my ggg grandfather Loton Frisbey.
Do you mind if I use your photo for my research records?

Hi Tom

I see you like to track civil war veterans. I have recently added 4 at Hillside Cemetery, Mpls, and there is one in St. Anthony Cemetery, Mpls. Let me know if you would like their names
