Bio and Links
Bio Photo Beginning in the summer of 2009 I undertook the project of updating cemetery records for Resurrection Cemetery(originally Swedish Cemetery and then the Lutheran Cemetery). Resurrection Cemetery is owned by First Lutheran Church of St. Peter, Minnesota (originally Swedish Lutheran Church).

Concurrently, I also began researching those interred at the Saint Peter State Hospital Original Cemetery, which is adjacent to Resurrection. The Original Cemetery land is now owned and maintained by First Lutheran church via the Resurrection Cemetery Board. However, the Saint Peter Regional Treatment Center, formerly St. Peter State Hospital, has the burial records for the Orignal Cemetery.

In order to maintain the integrity of these cemetery records, I will not transfer memorial pages unless it is confirmed that a person is not actually interred in one of the two cemeteries mentioned above.

I am willing to add corrections or additions as appropriate and as consistent with Find A Grave policies.

RE: Edward Luck
Hi Nita,

Thank you so much for your quick reply. I so appreciate your help. I wish that I did know more about Edward Luck. Unfortunately, I have no photos and hardly any info on him.
I had a death date of Jan 1886 for Edward Luck in St. Paul, Ramsey, MN. Then, I came across your findagrave entry. I know this is likely the same person. HIs wife and children (including my g grandfather, then moved out of the area). I have no idea why Edward died so young, and I did not know that it was in a mental institution. This is all new to me. I wish I had more info that you could post. If I ever do find more, I will come back and post. Thanks for all you do, including the info on the cemetery. It really does help!

Edward Luck
Hi Nita,

Thank you for allowing us non-Minnesotans access to finding our ancestors through your work. Do you by any chance still visit those cemeteries and take photos for others? I am specifically asking about the St. Peter Asylum that Edward Luck is buried at. (d. 29 Jan 1870). Thank you in advance.

Esther Elizabeth (Bachman) Felts
Thank you for the memorial for Esther Felts in Resurrection Cemetery. I had been searching for her as she had been married to my husband's grandfather, Earl O. Felts. They are now connected in the Find a Grave system.

I had Esther's birthdate as January 9, 1908, instead of June 9. Are you able to double check the month of her birth? I don't see the dates on her headstone.

Many thanks for all your efforts for Find a Grave!
