|Nancy Merriman||RE: Minnie Peterson|
Thank you so much for writing his bio, as well as linking his sons and wife. Oscar and Minnie also had a daughter,Marion, who died in California in 1997 (b 1914). I do have one correction to the bio:
Oscar's parents and sons Oscar and Emil
should read "sons Ole and Emil"…..
I greatly appreciate your work on this family! Thank you again!
|Nancy Merriman||RE: Minnie at Lutheran Cemetery|
How nice to hear from you! Yes, your husband and I appear to be cousins through marriage. My grandfather, Emil Peterson, was Oscar's brother. Emil and Oscar's parents were immigrants from Hedmark, Norway, and moved to the Christiana/Cambridge/Deerfield area. Upon the death of their mother (and the poor , the Peterson children had to grow up fast. Oscar moved to Milwaukee before 1910. Minnie was living in Sheboygan according to the 1910 census, but I believe that she must have also moved to Milwaukee. Theirs must have been a quick romance.. They married in Milwaukee in Dec of 1910, where the first two children were born….then returned to Sheboygan by 1915.
Oscar was quiet and sweet…..and Minnie was delightfully "feisty." My mom had lots of stories about her. Their marriage appeared to be a very happy one. One of their sons, Fredrick, became a world-renowned archaeologist…..found several lost civilizations, authored or co-authored 6 books (One was a text required for a course that my sister-in-law took in North Carolina!), and was a professor for 40 years at WV Wesleyan. Impressive. Amazingly, I just found some of his work detailed on "my" Milwaukee Public Museum web site (I am a docent there)…and discovered that he worked for them many years ago. Small world. Neat guy.
Aunt Minnie loved to dance, always served 3 vegetables at dinner, and was generous in buying little gifts at the local dime store for her nieces and nephews (my mom, included) Nice folks!
Thank you for adding information to the grave. Oscar died 21 Aug of 1964 and must be buried with Minnie.
I think they'd be delighted that we are still talking about them!

|PVoight||Looking for Ancestors Headstones|
Hello, my name is Peter V. and I live in Albany Oregon. I am looking for someone who could possibly take some digital pictures of my relatives headstones? I found you on Find a Grave. My great grandmother is Mary Katherine Belicza or "Kuban". Born in 1882 Died on Dec 21 1941. She is buried in Our Lady of Sorrows Cemetery. Her husband my Great Grandfather is Mathias Kuban Born Jan 26th 1872 and Died on Sept 29th 1955. They both lived in Cook Co Illinois, Chicago.
I live across the country and cannot visit their graves myself; perhaps I can someday. I would be very grateful if you could try to take their gravesite photo's the next time you are at the cemetery. My contact email is email@example.com. Please let me know if you are interested in helping me or not. I can reimburse you financially for you time. Let me know what you think is fair. Thank you for your time! Sincerely, Peter V.

Yes, it is good to read the tombstone! Thank you. I believe I may have a photo of just her stone. If it is more readable I will add it.

I am fine with your additional photo of her grave stone. May I ask where you were able to document her birth & death dates? Our family records include just the years. An ancestry.com tree lists birth 30 Nov 1803 and death (like yours) 31 Jan 1887. Thanks for any input.

|kpet||RE: Links, Updates, etc.|
She has just driven me completely over the edge. I have written to Find A Grave so many times about her as I entered a large cemetery in which she did 2 sections and has refused to make corrections or additions. Can't figure out how they let her get by with it. I have 142 edits out there, hopefully, Find A Grave will do as they are mostly people who won't.

I don't have any luck with Marge at all. I entered all of Graceland cemetery and she had done some of three sections. Would not add anything for me. The edit button does help somewhat now because Find A Grave will add the information after 30 days if she does not respond. I have complained so many times about her, asked for her graves to be transferred to me so I could add obits, etc. But they say she is active. If a close relation, ask for a transfer from Find A Grave. I have been emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and she has been adding things for me. Kay

You're very welcome. Think Spring!

I believe Lyman E. McFetridge married Amanda Ann Pennington and had a child, Effie E. McFetridge b. 1875/1876, IL.
Effie's mother, Amanda, married second John W. Penrod on 21 Sep 1879 in Wayne Co., IL. Effie married William Shelby. See 1880 US Census of Massilon Twp., Wayne, IL under John Penrod.
