I was born in Richfield, Mn but moved to Calif when I was 3. I married my wife on Feb 14, 1987. After 18 years we moved to Minnesota because we wanted seasons and I was from there. We settled in Waterville when I learned that my GrGr Grandmother was one of the founders of the Baptist Church in 1860 and my Great Grandmother was an active member for about 70 years and my Grandmother for 10 years. I had such a large family in the early years that there are about 65 members in my tree buried in Sakatah Cemetery in Waterville. I have to mention my wife, who was born in California but was raised in West Texas after being given up for adoption in 1965 at 5 yrs old. After years of looking she found her mother in 2006. They have since become close. I learned from talking to her that my wife's maternal Grandfather was born in Richfield, Mn, the same place as I was born. How freeky is that?
I will be happy to take any photos in the nearby cemeteries or transfer any memorials that I may have set up if they are relations of yours and not mine. I am happy to hear from you and do my best to answer any of your questions.

Patrick Smith in Sakatah Bob, you've loaded Patrick Smith (132725772) and I'm trying to determine if he is an ancestor. Where did you get the info to create the memorial? Is there any additional info? i.e. wife's name?
Thanks much for your help. Scott R firstname.lastname@example.org
RE: Degottardi Hi Bob, glad I could help. When I stopped at the office to locate Teresina's plot I noticed 3 others with the last name Nicola. Teresina imay be related to them by marrage. I add photos of their internments. If you or other family members are doing genology, Teresina's husband is Orazio Francisco Nicola. There were 2 other Nicola's Gualtino and Antonietta "Toynina" , I up loaded photos for them also. I'm not sure if they are related to you. Paula
