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.

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

Jill,
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!
Sue
