Bio and Links
Bio Photo Pre-script -- My account has more than 5000 memorials, about 500 or 600 if these are family members for my husband and myself. I would be more than happy to transfer outside the "guidelines". Just ask. Any relation or friend situation. I am not a selfish person. Some findagrave folks treat memorials like baseball cards and horde them. For what end?! I say --- Guidelines, Schmidelines..... There would be less problems and bad feelings all around if there were more generosity. But if there were no guidelines, some people would never even learn how to do a transfer...... I put information on this site in the hopes that someone someday asks for a transfer of a great grand aunt or uncle or cousin. This just means that people are looking....Happy to help!

My first stop in a cemetery is any photo requests, then it is the small white markers with the little lambs; the ones that are slowly giving in to the elements. Next, Veterans from any war, especially the Civil War, they seem to be forgotten about. This summer has been spent on many a gravel road with map in hand looking for the small out of the way cemeteries in this area. Sometimes hubby comes along.

More than happy to transfer any family, except of course, my relatives. Gladly will make any corrections, additions or relationship links. The great thing about findagrave is so many helpful, friendly people adding pieces to the genealogy puzzle.

RE: Eckstein photos
Thank you, Kate. I'm very appreciative of these photos, as is my mother. It gives tangible memories to relatives I've never met and gives much perspective to where we each come from.

I hope you never forget that what you do is so important to myself and others.

RE: Terry Stove
Thank you so much for looking. Maybe he's listed in this cemetery by mistake. Thank you again.

Kate, Adolph is Marie's brother and the "baby" is Adolph's child.

I'm showing that Marie is about seven when she died.

Happy hunting,

RE: Lee's
Thanks, Kate! Thank you for the original set-up, and I'll go through them all and make any additional links that aren't already done. I have photos for all of them, so we'll add them too if they're not done already.

RE: 55526158 Hans O. Lee
Yes, Hans was my great grandfather, father of my maternal grandmother. Thanks, I would like that - that would allow me to make connections with other family members.

55526158 Hans O. Lee
Just a clarification on children listed on his memorial: Marie (aka Mary) was the daughter of his 3rd wife, Karine Nelson (which may have been a married name from another marriage). Mary was born in ND and came with Karine when she married Hans in 1901. Karine died in Stillwater in 1950; I do not know where she is buried. Mary married 1st Ole Hanson, 2nd Milan (Mike) Skarich, died in St. Paul in 1989.

Thank you!
Thank you for going above and beyond, and providing photographs of all the Werstleins. Thanks to you, I was able to find the name of the baby Hulda lost, Mathilda.

Thank you again!

You're welcome! I added several more Langveds to United Cemetery as well - two more Toms and Marie.
