RE: Istad
Thank you Susan :)

Hello Susan.
I have a bit of a puzzle that I hope you can advise me on.
I found a death certificate for
Florence Istad Age: 74 Death Date: 4 Dec 1974
Place of Death: Vancouver.
Registration #: 1974-09-018308: bca #: B13338: gsu #: 2050342.

Plus I found a
British Columbia Death Index: 1872 to 1979
Name: Sigurd Istad
Birth: 1897
Death Date: 1 Oct 1959 Age: 61
Place of Death: Vancouver
Registration #: 1959-09-011346
bca #: B13243
gsu #: 2033300
I see Sigurd is buried at Ocean View Burial Park
Burnaby, Greater Vancouver Regional District
British Columbia, Canada.
I am assuming they were married but I find no marriage record for them.

I'm not familiar with the area. I don't know where I should try to find obituaries for either of them. I don't know if Florence is buried in the Ocean View Burial Park and it just wasn't registered.
I also don't know if you are related to them in some way from reading your bio on findagrave.
I'm hoping you can advise me.

Jeremiah Lockwood - obit

Sullivan Daily Times
Tuesday, September 10, 1912


Following a fracture of his right thigh, sustained little more than a week ago, when he fell at his home, as he started down the steps, enroute to a physician’s office for medicine, Jeremiah Lockwood, 78 years of age, an inventor of note, and a veteran of the Civil War, died at eleven o’clock, Tuesday morning, at the National Soldiers’ Home in Danville, Ill.

He had been confined to his bed, since the injury, and was moved to the Soldiers’ Home on a cot. He was in failing health when he received the injury, which hastened his death.

Lockwood was a lieutenant of Company K, Ninth Iowa Cavalry, and had made his home in Sullivan for years. His wife died several years ago, and he was living alone at the time of his death.

Two daughters in Los Angeles, Calif., and two sons, whose residence is unknown, survive.

The body will be brought to Sullivan for burial.


NOTE : Clearly, he was either never buried in Sullivan, or, they moved the body later.

If you want to send me your email, I can send you a copy of this clipping, this weekend.

Hey... You added a tombstone photo to my memorial!
It was a wonderful surprise when I looked at that memorial today.

RE: Johnson Family Updates
Hi Susan.

I don't think I am related to any of these people. As Ottringham is my home village, I made the decision a few months ago to put all the gravestones in the churchyard onto this website. As you've already done quite a lot before me, you've saved me a lot of time, which is a bit of relief, as you can imagine. Also, apologies if I've made duplicates of the ones you've already done; I make a point of deleting mine once I know this is the case.

Kind regards,

Gracias for the pic and info Susan, wonderful job as you always do. He was plopped into my lap when doing a Martin study and hadn't had opportunity to explore. Appreciate your time too!

RE: Marie P Dicks

I know Vernon and Marie were in Nebraska in 1917-1918. From there I think they went to Colorado Springs- I can find them there n 1922. Do you happen to know where they were in 1920?

They also adopted Edith Fletcher in the 1930's. Do you have any background on why or how this adoption occurred?
