Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family tree for 13 years. I've always been interested in history. My Maternal Great-Grandparents came from DeSmet, South Dakota. They lived there in the same time period as Laura Ingalls Wilder of the Little House on the Prairie books. In fact, they purchased the Ingalls house from Carrie Ingalls when Ma and Pa Ingalls passed away. They lived in the house for many years and my Mother used to play there as a child. Eventually our family sold the house as a museum that you can visit today. I used to imagine how they lived when I read the Little House books.
And on my Paternal side of the family, my Grandparents came from Numaran, Mexico. My Grandfather left Mexico as a young man and went to California, where he got a job as an actor in silent films. He thought moving pictures was a passing fad, so he brought his family to the Midwest.
With all these stories filling my head as a child, it's no wonder that I have such a love for history, and cemeteries play a huge part and need to be preserved. If I happen to take a picture of any of your relatives, feel free to use my photo in your family tree.

John H Robb FAG# 128591623

I have added the Robb, Walters, Howard Families plot marker for John H Robb Find A Grave# 128591623. It is hard to see at the top but Robb is part of the marker in the GAR section of lot# 908.

Also on the back of this marker are the Knapp and Morris parts of the family which are located in the same plot.

It is an important part of keeping all the parts of the families interconnected since their Census data and family tree information can vary wildly.

Thanks for all you do.

Fred Bloemer's wife's Grave
Hi, Michelle,
I see that you have so kindly documented the grave of Fred Bloemer, # 128262176 in St. Mary Magdalene's.
Is there any chance you would be willing to also document his wife, my great aunt, Eleanor Bloemer, who shares a stone with him? It is sad that the stone is nearly grown over, and I think that you got Fred's info from the additional military stone that he has.
Her name is Eleanor Grimm Bloemer, March 10, 1919 to February 8, 1984. (Fred's dates, by the way, are July 12, 1903 to April 20, 1973. I would like to add my aunt Eleanor's parents to her Memorial on Find a Grave, once it is up, so I would appreciate it so very much.
I am trying to link our family graves together.
Thank you SO very much!
Molly H.

George Vradenburg memorial no. 128264416
The death certificate information for George Albert Vradenburg, given by his son George Hiram Vradenburg, gives his date of birth as 25 September and age as 87 which implies a birth year of 1840. He was born in Michigan. He died from chronic interstitial nephritis.
