Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm originally from Sutherland, Iowa and I'm in the process of recording, photographing & adding as many obits as I can find for all the graves in the Waterman & Calvary Cemeteries in Sutherland.

If you want a bio added in I will happily add it. If it is an obit from the paper/funeral home, please include the source. We're genealogist people! Sources are everything :-) If it is adding parents/spouse, please use edits feature.

The following newspapers in & around Sutherland are now online! Happy hunting :)
Sutherland Courier
Cherokee papers
Paullina Times
Peterson Patriot
Hartley Sentinel
Sanborn Pioneer

As a reminder, transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred.

Surnames I am researching: Flinders, Armstrong, Fuller, Dek, Sweeney, Ford, Sherman, Eggen, Tystad, Gaustad, Buckholtz, Gothier to name a few

If you find any mistakes please email me! :) The Sutherland Courier is online so I copy and paste it, it isn't always perfect (lots of extra ./,/- stuff) I try to get it all removed but feel free to point stuff out

Winfred Smith
Nicki - Thank you so much for all you do! For the past year I have been trying to find information on my Great Grandfather Winfred Smith who was a chiropractor in Sutherland. My grandfather, Harold Smith, was the son of Winfred and I was only able to piece together who I thought his parents were. The information you provided gave me the information I needed to find the obituary, his correct date of birth, place of birth and another relative to check out (his niece mentioned in the obit). All of this has allowed me to verify this connection! Thanks again - you have made my day!

RE: Helen Dau
No, I don't think so. When I sent the obit to you there wasn't any obit posted to her page. Did you recently add the obit for her?, like in the last few days? It all looks good to me. Thank you for taking care of Helen. She was a very pleasant lady.

Nicki-You did send & I got it. Computer not working for time being & I'm not sure how to do a lot of things. Thanks for both your comments. Darrel

Cyrenius and Jane's Children
Hi, again, Nicki,

Don't mean to be filling up your inbox, but I was just wondering if you had seen any sign of Nancy Jane "Jennie" Bailey, daughter of Cyrenius and Jane Bailey. I think she is the only one of the four children who died young who might be in Waterman, the others died when the family was still in IL.

Thanks, again! Great work.

Bailey Children, reprise
Sorry, Nicki, your two notes came in with quite a few other things between them, so I didn't notice them both at first. I'll get everyone changed to Waterman!

Great work!!

I do love it when a plan comes together!

Take care.

Bailey Children
Hi, Nicki,

Wonderful!! Thanks so much for adding the photos for the kids. I'm assuming they're all in Waterman. If that's right, I'll edit their burials.

Hope you've been doing well.

Thanks, again.

Take care.

RE: :)
Hi Niki
You are welcome. I commend you for all your hard work finding obits etc. Not a greater feeling when working on genealogy when you find a grave and the complete obit accompanies it. I love findagrave and volunteer my time a lot for the site. Lately I have been transcribing graves others put on I am about 4400 of them. I recently retired and love working on this kind of stuff.
Again, thank you for all you do for findagrave.
Take care Nancy
