None to be Forgotten
Hi Tom - deleted those two dups you sent. Just to let you know, I check any records I use against what's already in Find A Grave to AVOID dups but a few years back, not all the memorials would appear when I pulled up the cemetery lists on Find A Grave and so some DID get duplicated. Also a lot of memorials are created using "different" names than the name on the official records so they don't necessarily appear as a duplicate to me. I'm currently entering the entire state of Iowa and it's a real problem down there!Just let me know when you find one and I'm happy to take care of it! - Cindy (None to be Forgotten)

(FYI - I used to live in Winona and then Rollingstone. Am now in St. Charles. I even wrote a book about Winona County Cemeteries!)

Thanks Tom for searching and finding this grave. I did change the cemetery on my memorial. Confusing as even the DC had Mazeppa but makes sense. I have seen a few cemeteries that run together like that. Again, thanks for your efforts.

Charles Newhouse Headstone
Tom, Thank you so much for finding and photographing the headstone of Charles Newhouse, my great-uncle, and his wife in the Mazeppa Cemetery. I once tried to find the burial site, but was unsuccessful. So, I really appreciate your efforts on my behalf. Again, thank you. Linda Newhouse Oliver
