Any information on a missing grave?
Hi there! Do you have any record of a Frances Kakac buried at Saratoga Township Cemetery? She was the wife of Joseph Kakac, 1834-1920, #116559958. I just found out that she died in 1930 in Ohio, but was buried in Iowa. The information I found said that she was buried in Cresco, but I think it would make more sense that she was buried with her husband. I am about to order her death certificate, but I thought that I would ask you first, since you've done such a great job documenting the cemetery.
Thanks for any help.

RE: Memorial# 35535248 Anna Wilson Botamer (1880-1929)
Hi Paul,

I have no connection with the Botamer family. Law-Miller Roots did the original memorial. I was working with the North Murray Ridge Cemetery & their records to make all the North Murray Ridge Cemetery memorials as complete as possible.

RE: Buresch surname of Saratoga, Howard Co., Iowa
Hello. I am not related to the Buresh family. Frank & Frances' son who died this past week (Maurice Buresh) attended my church. Frances' maiden name was spelled Dvoracek in Maurice's obituary. Sorry I can't be of much help.

I noticed that the obit and death cert for the father is attached to the memorial of his son.

I also sent an edit for Marguerite Maruska correcting her maiden name, Ackerman. You have her first married name as her maiden name.
