Bio and Links
Bio Photo Pre-script -- My account has more than 5000 memorials, about 500 or 600 if these are family members for my husband and myself. I would be more than happy to transfer outside the "guidelines". Just ask. Any relation or friend situation. I am not a selfish person. Some findagrave folks treat memorials like baseball cards and horde them. For what end?! I say --- Guidelines, Schmidelines..... There would be less problems and bad feelings all around if there were more generosity. But if there were no guidelines, some people would never even learn how to do a transfer...... I put information on this site in the hopes that someone someday asks for a transfer of a great grand aunt or uncle or cousin. This just means that people are looking....Happy to help!

My first stop in a cemetery is any photo requests, then it is the small white markers with the little lambs; the ones that are slowly giving in to the elements. Next, Veterans from any war, especially the Civil War, they seem to be forgotten about. This summer has been spent on many a gravel road with map in hand looking for the small out of the way cemeteries in this area. Sometimes hubby comes along.

More than happy to transfer any family, except of course, my relatives. Gladly will make any corrections, additions or relationship links. The great thing about findagrave is so many helpful, friendly people adding pieces to the genealogy puzzle.

RE: William A Prentice
You're more than welcome, but I can't take total credit; the cemetery did the yeoman's share of the work.

I had searched for some time, when some field men came and volunteered to help. There were 5 of us looking w/ no success.

I finally had to call the office and ask them to find the grave for us. (Detroit Memorial has an odd system; I'm currently looking for another veteran.)

Such a small amount of "work" compared to Lieut. Prentice's sacrifice. (Just could not walk away from this one, once I read his bio.)

There were two other Prentices next to Lieut. Prentice's grave: Clifford (1895 - 1962) and Lorraine (1911 - 1990). While Miss Lorraine cannot be his Mom, they're buried in the same plot; implying they're a married couple.

Obviously, I have no clue if they're related, but would you like to add their memorials? I could provide the photos once you do.

Please, let me know how you'd like to proceed.

Thanks & Later.

RE: Underdahl photos
You are very welcome. I did not see a memorial for Sheldon close to them, but I will contact the office and see if there is one for him. I was just walking the cemetery that day.

Fred Hass
Fred is with his family in St. Martin's Lutheran Cemetery, but listed as Fritz on his stone. The dates match, but the middle initial on the stone is "A" not "J" as your source has included.
Best, Clio

RE: Ole Hoff
I don't have the cemetery list/record book, but I think you're onto something. Maybe the creator of memorial #24862149 accidentally entered "1931" right after entering the 31 in "January 31"? The photo posted on memorial #133897342 was taken on the western end of the 1 Addition Section 14, but I'm not sure what lot or grave though.

You helped me find my great great grandfather!
Thank you so much for taking the picture of Peter Smith in Grand Forks. I believe this is my great great grandfather's grave. I so appreciate you doing this.

Kind regards,

Margaret Smith
