Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching family for over 4 years and a new member of Find A Grave. Family line includes; Carpenter, Fairbank(s), Foss, Lane, Nelson, Oothoudt, and Wise. Faribault County of Minnesota is the main area of residence. With the help of newly found "cousins" Marla, Debi, Gail, Donna, Linda, and Elaine, I have been able to add much more information to my family tree and genealogy information.

Oronoco Cemetery Memorials
When posting pictures for Ihrke I found that in 2010 you duplicated memorials that had been created in 2009. The following memorials you created can be deleted: Anna Ihrke, Carl Ihrke, Leona Ihrke and Valeria Frederick

Brockway, Hannon, Vroman
I recently visited the Pleasant Prairie Cemetery in Rochester to find the graves of some of my relatives. I was able to take photos of their tombstones while I was there. All of the people in this cemetery with the above last names are my relatives. Abel and Eliza Brockway are my great grandparents with the others being in the same family tree. I would like to request that you transfer all of the graves with the last names of Brockway, Vroman and Hannam to me unless they are your blood relatives. I have pictures I can post as well as family history I am willing to share.

So far I have not located you in my family tree but I might have missed you. So please consider transferring these records.

"G" S Linsley - Memorial 75063472
Hi, Jill,

Could you please change the memorial page for "G" S Linsley to Charles S Linsley? It's a bit trick to tell, but that G really is a C! :-)

Also, he was born in New York state in 1832, and can be linked to his wife, Philenia Linsley, in the same cemetery. She was born in Pennsylvania.

This couple were the ancestors of my son-in-law and grandson.

Thank you!

RE: Fanny Foss
You are welcome it is amazing how those old New England families stuck together and married a generation or two or three later

Finding the memorials that you have made has added so much to my "burial unknown" that I will never forget you! And then for you to transfer them to me for management....your kindness is greatly appreciated.

Lydia and Nellie Oxrieder
Dear Jill,

Words cannot express how very thankful I am for the pictures you took. It is truly such a great gift you have given. Bless your heart.

A little background on the Nellie-she died not too long after her daughter,Lydia.She left behind 4 young children who were all adopted out when their mother died.The youngest was a boy who was adopted by my great Aunt and Uncle(Nellie's husband, Dan's, sister). There is one sister still living and she is 92 years old. She will love these pictures.

Lydia died at age eight when a school boy kicked her in the stomach and she died of internal injuries.

God bless you!
