Rhodi Kidwell
I am grateful for you transferring Rhodi's memorial to me. Thank you for your kind comments. i can only imagine his mother's grief at Rhodi's untimely death. I did not realize she was widowed, nor that she had 3 more children!
On the surface Rhodi was a funny guy with a likeable sense of humor. He had marvelous artistic ability. I went through elementary and junior high school with him as well as one year of high school. I will be sure and add his attributes as well as any other flattering anecdotal recollections mentioned by classmates at our 50th class reunion in August.
Again, thank you

Old Coward Cemetery
FYI: You were the only one to correct memorials that are really located in Old Coward Cemetery, instead of Upper Coward, so I have notified everyone again using the edit tab. Two for you that I missed before, plus I notified on some that should have been in Lower Coward Cemetery. If they do not correct this time, I will not try again.

RE: Old Coward Cemetery
Yes, I worked from the listing in Cemeteries of Jackson County (done 1997) and notified all contributors for those memorials. From photos I saw you may have been there more recently, so if you have a more current list, I will be happy to notify any that I missed. I was foiled from visiting Old Coward by a locked gate and approaching thunder storm, but hope to try again this summer.

Hi David,
I found your name at the bottom of Gordon KLINE’s cemetery photo in Oakwood Cemetery in Rochester Minnesota I was raised by only my mother who was adopted and she never searched for her family (she is deceased) and ½ brother who’s father was struck by lightning in Minnesota. My birth certificate had no fathers name. I had no idea who my family was, as they all kept it a secret. Well, I got so anxious about finding them and trying to put together a FAMILY tree, that I without knowing posted your pictures to MY family tree, which I have not made public yet to my knowledge. Today watching Ancestry 5 minute videos I learned I was absolutely unable to do that without your permission. Could I please post your photo’s from Minnesota cemeteries? The families I am working with are: KLINE,KUKA, LOECHLER, HENNESSEY, FIECK and you may have taken their pictures also, So much research to do. Do I need to do a request for each photo or is there like a blanket permission. Thank you so much.
By the way, I have found my birth father and my mothers birth parents. Very happy.

RE: Photos usage
Hello David, Many thanks for sharing your photos. I am using you photo of Find A Grave memorial 133020126 Barbara Sanborn Rhodes. She is a twig on a branch of my line that goes back to the Reids from Scotland. She was 2nd wife of Logan Marvin Rhodes. So family line back is Rhodes, Furman, Miller, Gould, Currie, MacKinnon, Reid. I tend to collect many twigs, but hope my research on & Find A Grave can also assist other researchers. Bye Barb

Re your Photos on Find A Grave
Hello from Barb in Australia, Many thanks for your work = time & effort in recording cemetery & grave marker photos on the Find a Grave Website. I wonder if your photos are copyright or am I allowed to add them to my family tree on I will give you the photo credit eg Photo Credit: Thanks to “David Coward” Find a Grave Website, Memorial no… photo used with permission. I am NOT interested with the transfers of these memorials, just wish to add the photos to my family tree. Regards Barb Muir, Melbourne Victoria Australia
