When I registered Mr. Muhleís gravesite, your memorial page did not show up. You must have registered his obit without identifying the cemetery. Had I known about your page, I would not have created an additional memorial page.

FIND A GRAVE states:
In regard to duplicates, a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location. A member has thirty days to update the memorial to the correct burial location on recent deaths.

Later, you may have added his cemetery location but it was after my memorial page was created.

I have no problem deleting pages if I goof up. In this case, I donít think I did.

I am sorry, but I never add newspaper bios to my memorial pages.

I linked these three to their father even though his burial is unknown. I usually follow Find A Grave guideslines which is "Location of body unknown is used for recent deaths where the disposition is not currently known. Final disposition must be determined and updated within 30 days" Please try to determine final burial place as soon as possible.

Eric and Anna Johnson Memorials
Thank you for transferring these memorials to me.

I have received a response from church cemetery folks and they are now checking church records to see if they can provide more information for me.

Take Care.

RE: August and Mary Kurkela - Edits
Wow. This is great news.

I believe that those other Johnson's located in that vicinity are related to Eric and Anna Maria. I am going to take a look at the census records and contact the County to get the death certificates for Eric and Anna Maria.

I have contacted the Cemetery via phone and I am waiting to hear back regarding any other information that they can provide me.

Would you mind transferring these two (Eric and Anna Maria Johnson) memorials to me ? I would like to populate these with information as I uncover it. My father (he is 84 Yrs old) believes he has more content somewhere in a box in has basement that pertains to Eric and Anna Maria Johnson. There could possibly be pictures in that box as well.
