Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love history, genealogy and cemetery hunting.
The tree in the photo is a Burr Oak called the Half-Way Tree that was paced off by Native American runners as the half way point between the Mississippi and Lake Michigan. My ancestor William Rice lived very near this tree and died in 1857.

In about 1861 some Native Americans spoke with a local farmer and told him to never cut down this tree because it marked the midpoint for their journey. So they never did.

Hi. I didnt get a chance to get to Greenwood yesterday. But I forgot to ask about Kakos.
Any possibility they are related?

RE: Possible Kika relations
I will go back and check the area where Kiika's was buried. Hopefully I get there tomorrow if it doesn't rain. Will let you know.

RE: Possible Kika relations
I'm glad it helped. I try to go there as often as I can. I live close to the cemetery. I will keep an extra watch out on any more. Those were the only Kiika's in that area, but I will keep an eye out for that name or anything similar.

Possible Kika relations
I seen your request Mary Oberg and Kika's in Greenwood Cemetery. Not sure if these ones are a related surname.

I found this gruesome article about the death of this man. My grandfather also worked on the St Paul Pass tunnel when the Milwaukee Road built the west coast extension in 1909

RE: Adler
I did not take over everyone from Cemetery Walker. More than happy to transfer to family, or others who know more about memorials I manage. Please let me know which ones.

Mary Lucas edit
You asked me to link my memorial of
Mary Lucas to her mother Paulina D. Leach.
Paulina is "Burial Unknnown." Sorry but
I will not link any of my memorials to
"Burial Unknown." I do not add "Burial Unknown"
memorials to this site, and I will not support
