Hi Mary, I went ahead and deleted my entry for Anna Connolly at Oakwood Cemetery in Wilmington for you. No need to delete yours. I'm not about the numbers. I'm just glad that the information is now correct. Sincerely, Julie
|Tom Jennings||RE: Mary McGuinn|
The McGuinns are related to me through the Gallaghers of Fauleens, Carracastle, Co. Mayo. A cousin in England sent me a report he had done by the Genealogy Centre in Northern Mayo. That is what lead me to these memorials. I am amazed at how information that is shared can connect the dots so completely! Thanks for what you have done on Find A Grave.
|William Kazupski||RE: McGuinn Photos|
Hi, I noticed that you have some McGuinn photos. If I email you a link, would you take a look at an unlabeled photo I have to see if they are McGuinns? I am starting to think that they might be. Many thanks for your time, Mary.
sure send away

|Kathi Flyte||RE: Mt. Olivet|
I have completed Oakwood. I'm working on comparing a listing to actual stones so I can fill in the blanks. I'm also done with Mt Olivet, but I feel like I missed a section and can't figure out where. Resurrection was started this summer, I've gotten about half of it done. I have about 1500 pix to download this fall.
|Nancy Merriman||RE: From Norway|
Oscar was born in Dane Co, probably in Deerfield. The older boys emigrated in 1885 with their mother. Their father had come here in 1879. i'm sorry that I have not been clear.
|Nancy Merriman||RE: Ole Peterson|
Oscar was younger than Ole (eldest) and Emil (next) There were also the two daughters, Amanda and Nora (Brown) as well as twins Rudolph and Adolph. Adolph died at birth, and Rudolph disappeared around 1920. Thanks for asking!
|Nancy Merriman||RE: Minnie Peterson|
Thank you so much for writing his bio, as well as linking his sons and wife. Oscar and Minnie also had a daughter,Marion, who died in California in 1997 (b 1914). I do have one correction to the bio:
Oscar's parents and sons Oscar and Emil
should read "sons Ole and Emil"…..
I greatly appreciate your work on this family! Thank you again!
|Nancy Merriman||RE: Minnie at Lutheran Cemetery|
How nice to hear from you! Yes, your husband and I appear to be cousins through marriage. My grandfather, Emil Peterson, was Oscar's brother. Emil and Oscar's parents were immigrants from Hedmark, Norway, and moved to the Christiana/Cambridge/Deerfield area. Upon the death of their mother (and the poor , the Peterson children had to grow up fast. Oscar moved to Milwaukee before 1910. Minnie was living in Sheboygan according to the 1910 census, but I believe that she must have also moved to Milwaukee. Theirs must have been a quick romance.. They married in Milwaukee in Dec of 1910, where the first two children were born….then returned to Sheboygan by 1915.
Oscar was quiet and sweet…..and Minnie was delightfully "feisty." My mom had lots of stories about her. Their marriage appeared to be a very happy one. One of their sons, Fredrick, became a world-renowned archaeologist…..found several lost civilizations, authored or co-authored 6 books (One was a text required for a course that my sister-in-law took in North Carolina!), and was a professor for 40 years at WV Wesleyan. Impressive. Amazingly, I just found some of his work detailed on "my" Milwaukee Public Museum web site (I am a docent there)…and discovered that he worked for them many years ago. Small world. Neat guy.
Aunt Minnie loved to dance, always served 3 vegetables at dinner, and was generous in buying little gifts at the local dime store for her nieces and nephews (my mom, included) Nice folks!
Thank you for adding information to the grave. Oscar died 21 Aug of 1964 and must be buried with Minnie.
I think they'd be delighted that we are still talking about them!
