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 and Liberty Cemetery in Calumet.

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

David Johnson
Hello nicki,
I am Mike O'Shea and found that you have posted an obituary and a photograph of the death and burial of David Johnson. He is a 3rd cousin of mine and I would like to seek your permission to use both the obit and the picture of his stone on my Ancestry Site. Naturally all appropriate credits will be afforded you in the notes. Thank you

Thank you for letting me know the correct spelling of his last name. He was a CIVIL WAR vet and I was able to read his unit and add to his bio. Your photo was excellent, easy to read.

Thanks for all you do on Find A Grave

RE: Runge family
I'm related on the Menke side, so I don't know her family. Sorry wish I could be of more help. Kris.

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.
