Sally (Skelton) Bratton
I saw where you had posted a picture of the Bergquist & Shogren descendants. I was just wondering how you are connected.
My name is Sally Bratton. I am researching my husband's family. Charlie & Susanna Sjogren are his G-Grandparents.
Please contact me at if you are interested in connecting.

Any Swenson
I know there are many Swenson's buried in this cemetery. There is only one Swenson listed. Is there anyway you could take pictures of the rest of them. Is this cemetery far from Brandon, S.D.? Is it hard to find? I am doing this for my sister. Is there a listing anywhere of the people buried in this cemetery?

Call the Garretson Museum. They have just recieved the books that contain all the newspaper issues of the Garretson Challenger. They should be able to look up the obit if you provide a more detailed date. Might give you a clue to the burial location.

The Markles
I should have looked down my email list further.... someone else did find Charles and Maude's graves and posted the picture. I did call the funeral home and got the directions of how to find them too!
Then I requested the photo again but since have removed it!

Thank you again for all your time and effort!

Charles and Maude Markle
Thank you very much for looking for my Markles. I have submitted new photo requests with instructions of how to find the graves and you've probably received them by now. Thank you!

Mount Pleasant
Slofty: I would like your photo of the front entrance with the guard house at Mount Pleasant in Sioux Falls used on the site for Curtis Wolden, rather than the one of the sign that is there now. Is there any way to change it? Thanks, Lon +

RE: MA Foster
Thank you for taking the time to get the Foster cemetery photograph's for me.

You mentioned that you took a photo of Pearl Foster. Was she born 1891? I will post her to findagrave. Thank you for taking that one also.
Do you know how to upload them to findagrave? If not could you email them to me.

Thank you again.
Cheryl S.
