Bio Photo I don't transfer to memorial collectors!! If that is you, don't expect a response!!!!!


Many people are studying their family history to find medical information. Among the conditions that are thought hereditary and at least partly preventable or treatable are depression, diabetes, kidney disease, hypertension, heart disease, and cancer. Omitting medical information is not polite, IMHO.

I found a statement about links that perfectly expresses my own beliefs. I'm posting it with permission.--------------------------
Let's help the next family member or researcher that visits a memorial by adding all the family links that we know. When family members are not linked, it makes the next person do the research all over again. Also, if we have the information, let's use it before it is forgotten.I also believe that family links make this site easier to use. The easier it is to use, the more it will be used and the better it will get.

My number of memorials managed is increasing because I apparently am the succession plan for a few contributors, at least partially. I don't mind, it's easy to maintain memorials.

Arthur Teske - Memorial# 131526756

This Arthur Teske is Arthur L. Teske, son of Otto Emil Teske and Emilie Pauline "Amelia" born Kolterman - and NOT (as you or someone else linked him) the son of Albert Theodore Teske and Anna Margaret born Wagner.

Below the wedding announcement of Arthur L. Teske in the Havensville Review (which could be added to Arthur L. Teske's memorial) :


Miss Stella McCloughan and Mr. Arthur Teske were married at 10:00 o'clock a.m. Monday, August 18, 1924, at Duluth, Kas. They were accompanied by Miss Edna McCloughan, Miss Esther Teske and Miss Wanetta Gibbs of Topeka, Kan. After the ceremony they drove to Topeka, where they were served with a dainty wedding supper at the home of Mr and Mrs W. R. Gibbs.

Mrs. Teske is the daughter of Mr and Mrs Wm. McCloughan of this place. She has a pleasing personality and is well known and highly respected by all who know her. Mr. Teske is a son of Mr and Mrs. O. E. Teske of Onaga, and is connected with the Teske & Sons Garage of that place.

Mr and Mrs Teske accompanied by the Misses Edna McCloughan and Esther Teske left Tuesday for Denver and other points in Colorado, for a two weeks visit with relatives of both the bride and groom. They will make their home in Onaga, Kas.

The community extends congratulations to this young couple and wish them much happiness in the future.

1925 Kansas Decennial census, Onaga, Pottawatomie, Ks.. Mill Creek township


So this Arthur Teske should be completed with the middle initial "L." removed from Albert Theodore & wife as father and linked to Otto Emil Teske wife :

Best regards,

I added the Cook County death record to Carrie Nordstrom's memorial and changed the date of death to match the death record information as you suggested. Grave markers are sometimes wrong.

Do you have a personal interest in her? Or perhaps like me you are finding useful work to do on Find A Grave even though the people are not my family.

Is Nellie Rickard Walker buried in Laupahoehoe Beach Cemetery or Honokaa Seventh Day Adventist Church Cemetery? There is a memorial in both for her.

If this headstone is really Mrs. Adolph Husmann not Mr. Then this is probably his first wife, Emma Luika Makaalu.
