Bio and Links
Bio Photo My McEwan grandparents divorced when my Mother was 2 in the 1920s. She never knew her father, even though there were only two McEwans in the telephone book. My own father made connections with him and we met. He died shortly after that. I was so curious about him, as he was an unknown and I started rooting around the library in college. Never did find any particular reason for the divorce, but it certainly gave me the "itch" to learn more and do research.

I am glad to make changes, corrections and transfers. Please follow the guidelines of Findagrave and use the edit tab at the memorial.

Happy Hunting!

Louis Gienau #112563350 & #112386875
On May 4, 2015 I submitted an edit to correct two memorials for Louis in two different cemeteries. This one and #112386875.

Following up today there have not been any changes so I submitted a link to the memorial which was created first to his parents - Gustav #98586334 and Anna #98586284. I'm not sure which memorial is correct. If you know, please delete the incorrect one and link his parents to the correct one.

Thanks very much for all your work on Find A Grave.

I looked back into my records... Fat fingers I guess, it was a typo...

Same person. I will have to look in my record if I still have it and see but am fairly certain I made a typo.

Great catch, young lady! Can't quite make out entire first name from stone but you are correct about last name. Thank you!

RE: Eddie Robinson
The Colfax cemetery records were destroyed in 1926, along with any wood markers. We are using the plot maps, funeral records from the local funeral home, and the old newspapers to put it back together.

I suppose sooner or later, will come up with more info as I get further through the funeral records (currently in 1908) and old newspapers (currently on 1889).
