Bio and Links
Bio Photo This has been my hobby for over seven years, started long before I discovered any websites for posting them.
I find myself concentrating on the older, broken, unreadable tombstones, the ones that, because of layers of mold, lichen and grime, are so obscure that people tend to walk right past them. I get more satisfaction uncovering a lost individual's stone than I do photographing huge monuments that will be around for a thousand years and those more modern ones of the men whose bones have partially disintegrated while still clothed in the everlasting polyester suits that they were buried in!

RE: Kehren
Hi Cheryl,
Please transfer the photo to the correct memorial.
I didn't make the connection until you sent this second message. I've been working on Wayne Zion Lutheran Cemetery near Monticello in Jones Co. Rev. Kehren was a pastor there and there is a memorial for him in the cemetery ( #110709972). When you have a correct memorial number I'd like to reference it on the memorial at Wayne since he served as a pastor there.

Hello, I don't believe I've taken any pictures of gravestones in those cemeteries. The only Kehren in my genealogy file is buried at Wayne Zion Lutheran Cemetery in Jones Co.
If you can provide more information I'll look at my records again.

Cannon Family in Linwood
I wrote a book about the Benton Avenue Cemetery, Helena, Montana, Lewis and Clark County. Here is information about Bernice Cannon in Linwood.

Cannon, Bernice Martinique
Miss Cannon was born in Helena, on November 16, 1869 in the family home at 303 Broadway. She was the oldest child and only daughter of Charles Wesley and Catherine (Martine) Cannon. When a child, she was called “Birdie.” In 1884, she was sent East to school at Garden City, Long Island, and there she was first attacked with the problem that finally caused her death. She was so ill from Bright’s disease, the physicians despaired of her life, but she rallied sufficiently to return home, where she seemed to grow better. Bernice died at the family home on September 13, 1888; she was only 18 years old. Her lifeless remains were laid out by loving hands while kind friends ministered with sympathetic hearts to the grief-stricken mother. A casket was telegraphed for from the East. Her remains were enclosed in a magnificent casket, which was profusely decorated with floral offerings. The funeral was held at the family home with Rev. F. T. Webb of the Episcopal Church and Rev. T. V. Moore of the Presbyterian Church conducting the ceremony. (Helena Daily Herald, 9/10/1888 and Helena Weekly Herald, 9/13/1888) She was buried in the Cannon Plot, Section B, Row 1. The plot has a concrete coping with “Cannon” on the front. Then on December 19, 1896, her remains were removed by Vetter, the sexton of this cemetery through Herrmann & Co., and shipped to Linwood Cemetery in Dubuque, Iowa. Her remains arrived on December 23, 1896 in Dubuque. The records of Linwood Cemetery Association note the following: Charles, Catherine, Bernice, and William LeGrande Cannon, along with W. W. Martin [Martine] and Charles Francois Guerin are all buried in Lot 43, Section 2 at Linwood Cemetery, Dubuque, Iowa.

Saint John's Lutheran
Hi Cheryl,

I have been trying for at least a couple of years now to get Find A Grave and the rest of the Find A Grave community (that is those who don't understand) to come to the reality that there are two (2) different Saint John's Lutheran Churches and Cemeteries in the Bellevue, Jackson, Iowa/Saint Donatus, Jackson, Iowa area.

I have created for the second time a new entry on Find A Grave for the Saint John's Lutheran Cemetery in Saint Donatus. I am still awaiting an answer from Find A Grave via email concerning this issue.

The reason for me contacting you is to thank you for all of your good work and to ask if you would be willing to move your entries that have wound up in the old existing Saint John's Lutheran Cemetery in Bellevue that belong in the Saint John's Lutheran Cemetery Saint Donatus to this new page. I realize this could be a lot of work and time on your part but it is to the benefit of all the Find A Grave community and others. I also realize Find A Grave caused this dilemma in the first place but they only seem to be able to mess it up further. They deleted the page for the Saint John's Lutheran Cemetery in Saint Donatus and threw all of those entries into the Saint John's Lutheran Cemetery Bellevue. By the way they have the wrong address on the existing Saint John's Lutheran Cemetery Bellevue incorrect. I am going through my own personal records to find those that are in the wrong cemetery. I will be contacting those contributors who have created those memorials and asking them if they would move their entries also.

If you have any thoughts on this matter or if I can be of any assistance in this mater if you chose to pursue it please contact me.

Thank you
Thomas Henning

Thanks for making the edits on the memorial for this distant cousin of mine (my great great grandmother's first cousin). Glad to see him connected back to his family that moved on to another state. Actually it was his father that led my great great grandmother to move to Louisiana from England which eventually led to me.

RE: checking name
i remember Si and his wife and they lived on North Gill street next to my grandparents home, Si had a handicapped son who was my age, but i think he has long since passed. I am in the process of trying to contact the owners of my grandparents home as i have gotten to the age where going down memory lane is a good and needed thing for me at least. My grandparents were Mr. and Mrs. Charles Doxsee and lived at 314 North Gill Street.
