Bio and Links
Bio Photo Those who do not look upon themselves as a link, connecting the past with the future, do not perform their duty to the world. - Daniel Webster
Our individual grandmothers introduced us to our family history in 1949 when we were very young. The tales of the adventurers, frontiermen, Minnesota Scots fur traders, French trappers and the American Native Chiefs in our familiy fired our young imaginations like nothing else. Now that we are retired we can devote more of our time to this fascinating hobby, and learning more about "the frontier" in Minnesota, the Dakotas, and the Wyoming plains. Also pursuing in Virginia, Maryland, Massachusetts and our country's early history environs.
Since retirement we have become the family historians and enjoy genealogy and the subsequent history enormously ever since. Our personal interest resides specifically with these surnames: Paternal lines: Alden, Bartlett, Blackburn, Church, Cissell, Clark, Folsom, Greene, Hayden, Jewel, Lessert, Osgood, Payne, Thompson. Maternal lines: Anderson, Aisquith, Ayrd, Blanford, Bear, Brown, Campbell, Carli, Carrico, Chatillon, Crawford, Curtsinger, Frenier, Grey Cloud, Hagen, Hayden, Langworth, LeClair, Patrick, Pidgeon, Pugh, Renshaw, Renville, Robertson, Roy, Thompson, Toon Valandry, Wabasha.
Any information at all that you might provide along these lines is valued. Blessings!

Gamble Cemetery
Last year I posted a picture of every headstone at Gamble but I cannot find it now. It looks as though they combined it with St. Mary's and my pictures are not there. Posted Sam and Mary's. When I get back, I will post the rest of the ones I have that are not on the site. Patsy

RE: Lessert famly
Mary & Sam Lessert are buried at the Gamble Cemetery. I have posted their headstones. We do get to Pine Ridge cemetery as some of my husbands family is buried there. I will keep an eye out for Robertsons and I have always looked for Lesserts as they are in our family tree also. I can send you some articles we found in the Cody Cowboy newspaper regarding the Lesserts if you would send me your email. It seems there may be two cemeteries for Gamble posted on Find A Grave.

RE: Vina Lessert
There was a headstone for Susie Lessert Green that I posted but I do not remember seeing headstones for the other Lesserts. I will look again when we go back to South Dakota. There are Lesserts buried at the Gamble Cemetery. That cemetery also has another name but cannot remember the name at this moment. Patsy

Mary Emma Thompson and husband Wm Frederick Thomas
Moved possibly???... The headstone is in Saint Denis Cemetery in Hickman County, Kentucky, U.S.A.
Which is not far from Saint Jerome's in Fancy Farm, Graves County, Kentucky, U.S.A. I would suggest you contact: St. Denis Parish,(270) 642-2586 | Fax: (270) 642-2222.
The person who posted the memorial at St Jerome is longer accepting any messaging:

God bless you and yours,

I have contacted Find A Grave:
The following persons:
Mary Emma Thompson ( Find A Grave Memorial# 85120087) and her husband, Frederick William "Fred" Thompson (Find A Grave Memorial# 85120067) are located in St Denis Cemetery, Hickman County, KY., U.S.A.

Not in St Jerome Cemetery in Fancy Farm, Graves County as listed by Created by: Fred Federle (#47170094) Record added: Oct 07, 2009.

Mary Emma Thompson Thomas (Find A Grave Memorial# 42793161) or her spouse
William Frederick Thomas(Created by: Fred Federle - Record added: Oct 07, 2009, Find A Grave Memorial# 42793196).

I am certain of this as I have completely photographed all the headstones in both cemeteries.

There has been a photo request for both at St Jerome's cemetery, they are not planted there. Also Mr Fred Federle has NO contact information available any longer.

Thank you. sincerely,
Pam H (#47375695)

I found this obit in my search of the Kent Valley newspapers on microfilm at the Kent Library. Is this an obit you would like a copy of?
