John Winget
You left a flowers on John's Grave and mentioned Joshua Winget and Elizabeth Reichelderfer. I have searched for their pictures and was wondering if you knew anyone that has their picture.
My grandfather was Joshua Winget, son of John Winget. Thank you for any information.

RE: Ernest Iverson
Thank you so much for your very prompt reply.

It had occurred to me that Carl M (my husband hated the confusion caused by being named for his I see why...) might not have known much about his father Peter 's family, given that Carl M was not very old at the time of the divorce. Oddly, Carl M apparently wanted to name Carl D "Peter" ...according to Alice, Carl D's mother, he said that it was a family tradition to skip generations...Carl to Peter to Carl... He must have made that up.

Sadly, Carl M was not Carl D's favorite person...Carl M was a good provider, though he was a traveling salesman and I think spent a lot of time on the road. Carl M was married twice, and both marriages ended in divorce. Carl D was very proud, though, of his father's service in the Army.

I saw the obit for Carl M and noted some oddities. There is no mention of his service during WWII...though his WWI service is specifically noted on the stone. Nancy's husband is called Dick, not David...and other minor errors.

On the other hand, Alice knew that some members of the extended family had changed the spelling to Everson for pronunciation reasons...

Anyway, thank you so much for your very quick response. I wanted to do this for my sons but I wanted to be sure I had the correct info.

I think I have a photo of Carl M in his forties that I guess I could post.

Thanks again.

Ernest Iverson
I saw your note on Ernie Iverson's Find A Grave site. Also the one on Peter's in North Dakota and the Johann and Carrie sites. If I had not seen your note on Ernie's site, whom I know absolutely to have been my husband's uncle, I would not have thought Carl M and Ernie to have been the grandsons of Johann and Carrie.

I am Carl Melvin Iverson's daughter in law, though he died before I met my husband, Carl D, his son, who is also now deceased.

I decided to research the Iverson family for my sons, largely because the family lore that Carl D knew was sketchy, to say the least. In fact, Carl D. thought the family was Swedish though at other times he said his family had come from Trondheim. Of course, his grandmother was Swedish.

My husband loved history and I find it remarkable that he did not know that his great grandfather was killed by Indians...a detail he would surely have repeated had he known it.

This leads me to my question. Are you certain that Ernie and Carl M and their sisters were in fact the children of the same Peter Iverson who was the infant child of Johann Iverson? I do know Ernie, Carl, Nina and the others were the children of a man named Peter, but is it the same Peter?

Also, I know the Peter Iverson of the family lore was supposed to have deserted his wife and kids ... So I wonder is he the Peter Iverson buried in North Dakota? Sounds likely to me. Also, of course, Carl M would have been under ten when Peter left, thus possibly explaining his not having learned any family lore or not caring to repeat it.

I will write my sister in law also for any family info she may have... Thanks for your help.

Cass County Cemetery
Greetings Carol,
I am researching the county cemeteries on the Trollwood Park property. I have recently added some photos that I took with captions containing all of the info I could find through the city and university archives. I read the memorial you wrote for Peter Iverson and wanted to let you know that the 350+ graves that were removed because of erosion were actually in Cass County Cemetery #3. They were moved to Springvale Cemetery in 1985. Link to Springvale Cemetery Site:
Cass County Auditor's Office:
(701) 241-5600
I have pictures of the stone at Cass County Cemetery, if you are interested.

Hello Carol,

As my winter project, I have been trying to update some of my earlier postings. In 2006 when I did St Matthews, Find A Grave didn't have the link feature yet.

I have linked your family from tombstone photos, your "flowers" and my copy of the cemetery.

If you have any more information or if I have something wrong, please contact me through the EDIT button.

The Bethlehem Cemetery in Kandiyohi was established about 1878. This was because of separation of part of Norwegian Church (Not a Local Thing) It was called th Synod at that time. The two churches in Atwater merged again in abouit 1917. This brought about the change in Synod cemetery which locally is called the Synod Cemetery but probably should now be called the Bethlehem Cemetery. Ardell Thompson

Mary Aldrich Clapper
I see you have posted a Mary Aldrich Clapper on the Elmhurst Cemetery in St. Paul. I belong to the Pine County Genealogical Society and am in the process of looking up old obituaries from the local newspapers. I have the obituary for Mary Aldrich Clapper published Sept. 14, 1972 if you are interested in having it. Let me know..
