Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in this site because of the history behind it. Then I began looking up my own family and found it fascinating.

As a kid, my Dad would take me throughout Minnesota and Iowa looking for his relatives in what I called "Stone Forests". I suppose being in a graveyard is somewhat nostalgic as grim as that sounds.

I don't plan on being a huge contributor to findagrave, but if I have free time I may fulfill some requests at local San Diego graveyards.

Dear fellow contributor,
Hello. It was a pleasure to find your great-grandmother's stone. Have you made a request to transfer?
Warm Regards,

Thanks for letting me know about how my contribution helped you find where your Grandfather is buried. That's what makes F.A.G. so rewarding. I'll try to post the grave stone photos in a few days and I will delete my memorial.

I photographed the whole cemetery, and she is not buried there, nor next to her child. Hope this helps.

RE: Got your message
Is it possible to ask your father if he remembers if your relatives had head stones? If there are supposed stones, are they flat on the ground or more of the monument type.
I live 5 miles from the cemetery, so going there is not out of my way at all, as I drive by the cemetery 5 days a week to go to work.

You are very welcome. It is always a privilege to take photos at Black Hills National Cemetery.
