Bio Photo *Please expect a wait as I receive many requests.

**Please do not demand that I do something or add information that is NOT on a memorial stone. I receive many requests, how am I to know if the information is correct?? I am sorry that I don't have photos or information for all the memorials I have added. I have added information found on memorial stones.

"Find A Grave's primary purpose is a graves registration website. If a listing or contribution corresponds with only the primary purpose, it has fulfilled its part of Find A Grave's mission..."

I started researching my family history in 1997. I have been successful thanks to websites such as this and (Random Acts of Genealogy Kindness).

After hitting dead ends in my research I decided to do what I could to help others. I have transcribed several area cemeteries and posted them on the website. I also do lookups and photo requests for people here and at If you need any help from my area let me know.

My area:
Minnesota Counties:
Big Stone (county history book, plat maps)
Lac Qui Parle (some biographies)
Chippewa (some biographies)

South Dakota Counties:
Grant (book with biographies, plat maps)

I am happy to transfer memorials to family members in accordance with the FAG transfer policy. Please do not ask for 'all' Smith's, etc unless you are directly related.

Please contact me if you find incorrect information or if you would like me to add information to a memorial. Please include your source of information as well. Thank you :)

Albert Morris Kain
Have been seeking burial of Albert Kain. A newspaper clipping (family papers - no citation) to H.H.Bailey dated Ortonville, July 10, 1885, states that he died at Ortonville on July 20, 1885, and was buried the 21st. It is signed by Capt. J. Van Allen. Albert was on a trip with his two sons, but no info is available on cemetery where buried. Do you happen to have any information about him? A big thank you to you for all the work you have done on the headstones!

Hi Lori,
I think I may have sent my transfer requests to the wrong email. Or can you verify that you received my transfer requests?

Thanks much

fuller family, minnesota
In Mound Cemetery in Ortonville, Big Stone County, MN, you have several persons named Fuller.

Memorial # 33029183 Anna Elizabeth O'Hair Fuller is the mother of George Alpheus Fuller, 02 June 1907 to 25 Nov 1959, born Kansas, died Big Stone County, MN. This has been confirmed by Wendy McIntosh via George's death certificate.

Anna is already connected to her husband George W. Fuller.

Thanks for finding the Big Stone County, Minnesota Fullers!

Wilhelm Hormann #32886071
I was looking at the pictures you added for Wilhelm (thank you very much by the way) and on his headstone it says "Christe Kreutz Ist Meine Zuflucht" and i saw that you had translated it but there was a question mark for the word Kreutz. Anyway the second word is cross. Thank you again for adding the photos as this is my Great Great Great Grandfather.

Could you transfer Anna's memorial to me? Her husband Joseph was my great grandfather's brother and I am trying to get all of the families memorials connected and updated. I have been working on the Cordie family history 18 years.
