RE: Collins family
Thanks, Tom. Living in California, I forget you can't visit cemeteries in the winter. I have a funny story about that! Went to visit my mother's grave with my sister and her sister, my aunt, in January. They knew better than to go off the road. I ended up in hip high snow. We all had a pretty good laugh.

Collins family
Hi Tom,
Are there Collins family graves in Calvary Cemetery in Austin, MN?
If you are able I'd love to add those to the database.

Thanks,
Sarah

Thank you!
Thank you so much for all the work that you've done finding and identifying the graves of our Civil War vets. I research the 5th Minnesota Volunteer Infantry Regiment. I see your name so often that I feel like I know you!

Calvin Rush Civil War
Calvin was a prisoner at Andersonville Prison in GA during the war. Over 14,000 men died there of abuse, starvation, and disease. Its a miracle my GGG survived. Thank you for your acknowledgment that he served in the Ohio 75th OVI.

Duplicates
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!)

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
