I am a descendant of John Parminter and Christian Kronberg (both 1800's immigrants) and am interested in family geneology. Please let me know if you see an error in my work.|
I also enjoy photography where it can document any recordable fact or event, as well as the beauty of nature.
Where possible memorials here should have at least one picture of the headstone, and where known, the location of the plot. This site would not be of much use to anyone if it were not for the people creating memorials beyond their own family. These should be transferred if they are your close ancestors and not mine. Who knows, we may be cousins!
If I have created a memorial of your family member, it was with great respect and the hope that someday you will find it and want it transferred to you (see "Help with Find A Grave" for transfer guidance. NOTE - I follow FaG guidance on transfer of close ancestors.) Let me know if I can help or if you have some additional info, I will be pleased to add it for the memorial. Please use the "edit" tab on the memorial for these suggestions or transfers.

Stephen than you for adding the family link. The family link is correct the Findagrave birth date for his father Harry Grace is incorrect it should be 1856. I have sent a edit to the people maintaining the pine grove cemetery Find A Grave Memorial# 96078400. If you look at the photo that they have you can see where it is 1856 rather than 1896 for his birth. Harry Grace shows up in the 1860 census as being 4 yrs. old, he was a lawyer in Superior Wisconsin. Here is one of his biographies stating that Robert Grace was his child. Robert Grace also shows up in the census as of 1900 at the age of 19.
A political history of Wisconsin

H. H. Grace
Harry Holder Grace is a leading lawyer and man of affairs in Superior, Wisconsin. His father was Robert H. Grace, a dealer in lumber and produce, who also kept a hotel, and was made a Master Mason by the present Grand Lecturer, Melvin I. Youngs, nearly forty years ago, while Mr. Youngs was on a visit to Grand Rapids, Wisconsin. His mother's maiden name was Catherine L. Hicks. The elder Grace was a descendant of the Protestant English branch of the Grace family. The family located early in the Eighteenth century in New York. Mrs. Catherine (Hicks) Grace is a descendant of the old immigrant Van Benschoten, who located on the Hudson in 1671. The subject of the present sketch was born in Little Lake, Adams county, Wisconsin. He attended the common schools of Grand county, Wisconsin. He attended the common schools of Grand Rapids, Wisconsin, and was graduated from the High School. Hon J. Q. Emery was Principal of the High School, and Mr. Grace was one of the several hundred young men in the State indebted to him for the encouragement and influence that caused them to continue in school work. After leaving the High School Mr. Grace attended the University of Wisconsin for about three years. Then began his business and professional training. He studied law in Gen. Kellogg's office in Wausau and in the office of Benton & Benton of Minneapolis in March, 1878, after which he practiced law six months at Beaver Falls, Minnesota: nine years at Wausau, Wisconsin; since that time at Superior, Wisconsin, with distinguished success. The two most important cases in which he has been recently successful are the "Hennessey Case." in which the Supreme Court sustained all the street, sewer and sidewalk taxes in Superior, and "the Duluth, South Shore & Atlantic Railway Company Case," in which the Supreme Court reversed two or three other cases and held that lands not occupied by railroad companies could be taxed locally. The decision in the latter case increased the local taxes in Superior about $20,000 per year and affected railroad lands all over the State. Mr. Grace was a Republican until prior to the election of Garfield. He voted for Hancock, and since that time has affiliated with the Democratic party. He ran for District Attorney on the Democratic ticket in Marathon county in 1886; member of Assembly in Douglas county in 1888; for Attorney-General in 1898. In 1887 he was Chairman of the committee to organize the village of Superior, and as attorney conducted the proceedings to secure the village charter. He was nominated by all parties as the first Village President, but declined the nomination. He was elected first Village Attorney and drafter the ordinances since adopted by the city. He assisted in making the draft of the city charter, and with Col. Hiram Hayes drafted the present school charter, which contains two features of public interest. The first of these provides for levy of the school tax by the School Board, and has enabled the city of Superior to provide ample facilities for rapidly increasing population. No other city in the State has a similar provision, and in Superior every child has a place to go to school. Under the second of the unique provisions referred to free text-books are furnished to all. As a consequence, all scholars are on an equal footing, and the well-to-do and childless help to educate the children of the poor. Mr. Grace was President of the School Board of Superior for five years. During that time he originated the present school system in Superior, and against strong opposition raised $240,000 and secured the building of seven well-equipped school buildings in the city. He was Chairman of the committee to secure the Seventh State Normal School for Superior, selected his own assistants, and after fighting over two and a half years before the Board of Regents and in legislature, against the opposition of all other cities competing for the school, helped in securing it for the city of Superior, and delivered the address at the dedication of the school. Mr. Grace has been on the Democratic State Central Committee, and was Chairman of the Committee on Resolutions in 1898. Mr. Grace has an interesting Masonic record. He has held about all the offices in the Blue Lodge, Chapter and Commandery. In the Grand Chapter he was the author of the rule requiring proficiency in preceding degrees before being advanced to subsequent ones. He is a member of the American Bar Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and the Douglas County Bar Association. He also belongs to the Superior Commercial Club and other local clubs, and is a member of the Congregational church. September 24, 1878, he married Elizabeth A. McCrossen, daughter of James McCrossen, of Wausau, Wisconsin. They have four children-Zoa A. Grace, 20 years of age; Robert J. Grace, 18 years of age; Clarence Grace, 17 years of age, and Harry H. Grace Jr., 14 years of age. Robert J. Grace was a member of Company I, Third Wisconsin Volunteers, and was in Porto Rican campaign in the Spanish War.
Hi Stephen, Thanks for the headstone photos. Leta
Thanks for working findagrave and shooting the pics !! I didn't know if I would ever discover where they were buried !!
Well...my relative hasn't responded and neither has the funeral home that handled her burial. So I have her still linked to her husband with burial unknown. Maybe someday we'll find her. Take care...and thanks again.

I use the Find A Grave link too. But I also like to have the photo loaded right onto the profile page for quicker viewing. Your name and source, including the memorial number, will be included. Thank you Stephen!
|Kathy Stroope Veasey||RE: Beth Soden at Acacia|
found it on ancestry.com ,..
Hi Stephen, Good to hear from you. I will check with my Waddell relative that may know the location/status of Betty's burial/cremation. So much for my guessing she would be with her husband. Thanks for letting me know and I'll let you know what I find out. Later.
Thank you for the photos of Rosa A Reed and Pauline Stevens grave stones.
