Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born and raised in Western South Dakota with strong Germans from Russia roots, but now live in Tennessee. Primary family lines I'm following include: Schaefer/Lux/Deutsch/Littau/Drefs/Mundt/ Schatzthauer/Hogg...and then some. Would like to find the final resting places of as many relatives in the US as I can, but am going to need some help. In return I'm hoping I can assist folks looking for families in the Memphis area.

If you'd like a memorial transferred to you just ask, follow the FAG guideline of including your ID #, and unless they are part of my family tree, I'd love to transfer them to you. If they are part of your tree they belong with you not me. My pay-off is in connecting folks up with their history.

Re: Sophia Alexander
Thank you Dale. I see where you let me know that she didn't have a tombstone. Thank you so much for the information and trip to the cemetery!

Re: Sophia May Rice Alexander burial site
Thank you SO much for taking the photo of Sophia May (Rice) Alexander's burial place. I assume she didn't have a tombstone. Was it the corner lot?

Valentine Malsi - Calvary Cemetery
Hi Dale,

Thanks for looking for Valentine. My sister discovered in probate papers that Valentine had a headstone and footstone. It is very possible that it is buried in the ground it was so long ago. We have contacted the cemetery to see if they can locate it. Thanks again for looking. Kathy

RE: Wm. Smith Obit
So far so good, Dale. I hope we both have a wonderful 2015 and beyond.

The 1937 newspapers have some very interesting stories in them. I may go back to the library and start looking just thru the 1920s and 30 newspapers.

RE: George C. Colston
the cemetery office confirmed it was not a charity burial, there was a fee that was paid.

George C. Colston
Hi Dale, I see you claimed my photo request for George C. Colston, DOD 1924. thought I would give you some extra information. I called the Cemetery this morning to see if I could find his exact burial site, plot #, etc., but the lady in the office looked in their old books and it was blank. Only gave his date of death, date of burial and mortuary name who handled the burial details. So we don't know where in the cemetery he is buried or if he even has a headstone.
