Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in Montana in the mid 1940s, I was raised in Duluth, Minnesota, and live in Saint Paul, Minnesota. See the link to the Rhode Family Tree below. It has additional information on most of my memorials on Find A Grave.


As Voltaire said, "the perfect is the enemy of the good." I believe it is better to post the information one has now, rather than wait for perfection. If you have corrections to the memorials I have posted, please let me know.

You have my permission to use any of the photographs I have posted.

In this far land beneath the trees."

Hi, Richard.

I requested a photo of my great-grandmother's stone. It will probably be a small stone, hand-carved, with the name Marie or Maria on it. I've seen it twice, but it might even say Mother on it. The large stone is under the name Cole. Other people buried in the same plot are Louis, Joan Victoria, and John. Thank you so much for looking for me. Hopefully, I will get back to Duluth to see it one more time.

Thank you,

Evelyn Cartee

RE: Hiram N. Pettis
Hi Richard,
Thank you for your response.
I think the Find-A-Grave information for Hiram T Pettis and Sally may not be totally correct. The 1870 census shows a birth year of 1822 for this Hiram T Pettis who married Sally.

All the census data I have for Hiram N Pettis shows a birth year around 1818 to 1819. A wife Malinda (Melinda) Taylor and a son Oliver born 1862 who married Emma.

I don't always trust the middle initials on the census data as they have been wrong.

I also have found a lot of errors on Find A Grave because people fill it in and it doesn't have factual backup from census data or death certificates.

thanks,
Diana

William Koke
Hello my name is Debbie and I have been unearthing gravestones in the back of Glenwood cemetery in Mankato MN so they can be documented before they are gone. I happened to run across a William Koke Jr. stone dated 1809 - 1888 memorial #166216499. I looked up his information at the Blue Earth County Vital Statistics office to verify the information on the stone. Would he happen to be related to the William Koke #122660397 that you requested a gravestone photo of. The name isn't common in this area so I'm wondering if they are related.

RE: Steven Edward Turner
Your very welcome Richard. I found I didn't take one of the two of them together which I always do. I must have got sidetracked and thought I did. if you want that I can go take it for you.

Best Regards,

May I use the marker/monument photo's that you contributed to Find A Grave memorials for Nelson Brigham and Winchester Stratton, to post on the Vt. C.W.site? ( www.vermontcivilwar.org)
You will receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration.

Bio Info - Joe Pickett
Hello. You went to a lot of effort to post all of that the bio info for Joe Pickett, however, I was wondering, why you didn't include the names of his first two wives in his bio?

Are you related to Joe Pickett? My link is through the Wilkins family
