Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy helps restore the many pieces of the puzzle regarding family connections. Life is defined by the dash between our birth and the time we go to meet our Heavenly Father God.

I am interested in the "dashes" between my ancestors' birth and death beginning with those who came in the mid 1600s - 1700s: The William White family, who came on the first Mayflower voyage and settled in Plymouth, MA. Then the line of families including: Wheeler and Rowe, who first settled in Massachusetts, Brainerd-Brainard from England who settled in Connecticut, Collins who settle on Governor Sprague's property in Rhode Island. The Nicol family from Scotland who settled in St. Lawrence County, Hammond, New York and then settled in Iowa, also the Quaker families of Knowles and Wilber (from NY to Iowa). The Peckenpaughs and Steibers from Germany and then those who came in the 1800s and settled in Wisconsin, Iowa and South Dakota - Childs from England, Steiber from Prussia, Nold from Switzerland, Reiersons and Houge/Hauges from Norway, and Nicholas from Wales; Lastly those who came in 1898...from Denmark namely Christensen and Walther side and Nelsens who settled in SD and later in ND and those from Sweden, Larsson, Nelson,and Carlson families who settled in Big Stone Co. Minnesota and later in Ward County, North Dakota.

"Not to know what
happened before we were
born is to remain perpetually
a child. For what is the worth
of a human life unless it is
woven into the life of our ancestors by the records of history"

-Cicero (106-43 B.C.)

Hi Evelyn

We found the marker for Robert Nicol, but could not find any surrounding marker for Betty Lou. Sorry.

I would like your permission to use the Mohall Cemetery litchgate picture that you have posted for my genealogy as I have a couple of Boggess family members buried there.

RE: Myrna Louise Christopherson
You're welcome for the photographs. By the way, your name caught my attention because I photographed a Rowe Nelson family plot in Grafton, MA. Please see Marion Edna (Rowe) Nelson #135502211.

RE: Lottie Belle Rowe Tindall
Evelyn: I have found Charles and Lottie. They are both at Maple Hills Cemetery. If you will switch them over to Maple Hills, I will then load their photos. Both stones are down below surface of ground several inches, and have aged. Alberta

RE: Lottie Belle Rowe Tindall
Evelyn: I have checked the cemetery records for a Tindall, none listed. Do you have any other info. that might help locate them? Alberta

RE: Phebe
You're welcome! There are several other old cemeteries in Haddam; perhaps she will be discovered in one of them but I'm not seeing any record either.

I wanted to tell you that the stones in this cemetery are all flat, and below ground about 1 to 3 inches, in other words the lawn mower can mow over them. The weed eater is the one not getting the grass off the stone, sometimes, plus older ones are turning dark. If I can help you with others, let me know. Alberta

Mohall Cemetery,
Hi Evelyn,
I know that the Cemetery is in Bottineu County. But if you click on the photo that you submitted of the cemetery, the caption that you entered reads - Mohall Cemetery, Ward County, Mohall ND. Just thought you might like to change it to Bottineau County. I know how easy it is to enter something different I've done it myself. Have a great week. Cheryl S

Noticed that you have an incorrect address under the photo that you entered for the Mohall Cemetery. Thanks
