RE: William O. Spencer
The source I used for the above memorial came from a web site called"Minnesota County Genweb." Example is "Steele County, Mn Genweb."

I am sure that the list I used was not complete. It would not indicate unmarked graves in many cases. Recent burials would also not be included. Some of these lists were done by volunteers during the Great Depression of the 30's.

The local historical society mY Have more complete information. Also, I would check the "Genweb" site for that county and look under cemeteries to see if it has been updated. If you could find the local sexton of the cemetery, they may have a complete listing of burials.

Good luck in your search. Merry Christmas!

RE: Petersons
Wow, great work! Sorry I meant "Christina", not "Caroline". I was going off my memory-sometimes not a good idea.;) Re: Mrs. Peterson do you think maybe naming her as Johanna with nickname Hannah might be the way to go since she is listed both ways in the censuses. Let me know if you ever find a link with John Ekedahl 146697602 to this family.

RE: wife of Israel Anderson
Now I see what you meant about the "Mama" and "Father" headstones on the website. No dates. Wow, they have taken a lot of photos since last time I consulted this option on the website! So that's all we're going to get on Augusta Holmberg. Holmberg may be her maiden name. The death index doesn't have it so someone would have to consult the death certificate to confirm that. The other Augusta Anderson is her daughter-in-law for sure which makes sense since that Augusta's daughter is Gladys Pittman, granddaughter of Israel and Augusta C, but no Arthur in the lot who was Augusta's wife. Hey, just FYI I'm going to put the monument photo on your memorial for Elmer. Since there's no headstone maybe you could add that to the memorial in the notes section. Thanks!

RE: Schimnich
When it comes to questions of dates, names etc. Find A Grave's policy is, as far as I know, still to put it as it appears on the stone. So I just go with what the stone says and add any information about conflicting data in the bio. If nothing else, it cuts down on accidental duplicating. Unless I can find actual birth records for Andrew and his wife, I will never know for certain which dates are correct.

The same applies with names on stones. My mom's sister Marie is a perfect example of this. Aunt Marie's first husband died before she did, and later in life she married for a second time. When my aunt died her name was Marie Cartwright. It was the name under which her obituary appeared, her death record was filed etc. However, since both she and her second husband had been married for years to their first spouses and had all their children with those spouses, when they died, they each were buried with their first spouse.

So I have a memorial for my aunt that is under the name Marie Evans. It is not the name she carried when she died, but the name that appears on her headstone, and Find A Grave does say to record things as they appear on the stone. Since she is linked to both husbands and to her parents, I am sure that anyone who comes looking for a memorial for her will be able to find her easily enough.

Thanks for posting the genealogy as I am working on Gilbert Hendricksons descendants in eastern Washington state not far from where Hannah Rodvold died. Your info helped me to trace the family more easily.
