Bio and Links
Bio Photo In appreciation for what others have done and all the hard work that happens here I will try to put back as much as I have received. I will try to add names and pictures from my own area. If you find one of your relatives that I have entered and the information is incorrect or you do not want it on this site, please contact me and we will correct or remove as quickly as possible. You also have my permission to use any of the pictures I have put on this site for your own personal family use. No need to ask. If you want a family member's memorial transferred to you, just ask.

If I am able to fulfill requests for names, photos or other additional information, please feel free to request.

Happy hunting to everyone of you who are out there searching and trying to fill in all the open spaces in family history. And, thank you to all the hard working volunteers that make this site so great.

Thank you that really did help to identify Harriet Holman on the S C Evans heastone. Turns out she was my 3 gr gm's (Sarah Cook Evans) sister.

Thanks again,

Shirley - you don't happen to have the list for the subject cemetery or know who I could get it from? I recently visited, and photog'd the entire cem, related to nearly everyone in there and reviewed the list at the gate but did not photog it - wish I had....
Any help would be appreciated.

RE: Beal Cemetery in Belle Plaine
I am very happy to do it and will get it done this weekend or before. I was also thinking about photographing the entire cemetery monuments. It's a beautiful place and there are not many monuments up there. Have you been here to see it? Some of the grave markers are so old that they are hard to read so it's been there for a long time. It is our pioneer cemetery and is high on a hill. Again, I am happy to help!

Beal Cemetery in Belle Plaine
I would be happy to photograph your request at the Cemetery. Please let me know if anyone has claimed it yet. Glad to help. I live just up the road from the cemetery and it's just a very pretty place to visit.

Metha Paulsen Grave
Hi Shirley,

Thanks so much for the photo of Metha's grave! She was my great-grandmother. Metha died when my grandmother, her oldest child, was seven years old, so not much is known of her life. I have a photo of her, some notes from St. Ansgar's church records, and a lock of her hair.

When Metha died, the ladies of the settlement prepared her for burial, according to my grandmother. They cut the lock of hair and gave it to Grandma for remembrance. Grandma treasured that and the photo all her life.

I can't tell you how much it means to me to see her headstone. It's so kind of you to do this for people you've never even met.
