When I started searching for my mother's family that she never knew, I didn't anticipate getting so caught up in the past. My hope is to help others find some of the missing pieces to the story of those who came before. My family consists of one son, and my husband. My main family names of interest are: Biersdorff, Rice, Aldrich, Thompson, Camp and Sabbe.
RE: Pomrening You're very welcome! As you can see this is a beautiful cemetery where the resting grounds are very well maintained. Was she a Clare or a Clara as the stone indicates? Also, was trying to find August's parents. Do you know if they were Karl and Emily from McHenry, Ill? He was a long way from home. I like to link to the parents when I can.
James and Mary Rice I've posted the photos of the grave markers but because there's very little difference in the coloring of the stone and the writing they are a little hard to read at the lower resolution used for the website. I've got the original uncompressed pictures if you desire them. Just let me know where to send them if you want them.
RE: Esther Rice Thanks very much and sorry about that. It was most likely from the Bismarck Tribune.
No, I am not related. Thanks for asking though! :-)
re: Esther Rice Debbie, I have added the obituary for Esther Rice, but not until after I looked it up and could site the reference for it. Are you part of the family? PSabbe #47277709 Added by P Sabbe on Mar 17, 2015 9:42 AM
Thank you for doing all this. I have just linked Allie to William. You have knowledge of the family and pictures. Are you related? If so I would like to share additional info with you as these are all my distant cousins.
RE: Syverson Photos have been posted on the memorial pages you created for Donald & John Syverson. You inquired about a wife being buried next to Donald. I did not see anyone else buried near him. His stone sat alone next to his parents. I did not however look too hard as I was not aware of a wife that could be buried near him. I did not see anything, but I will take a look sometime in the future, just in case she was in the same plot area and I missed her. Glad to be of help with what I was able to find for you. I enjoy the photo requests. After such a long winter, it's been wonderful to be able to spend some time outdoors doing the photo requests.
