Mrs. Isaac Stauffer (Anna)
Can you email me? I've got photos of Anna's gravestone for you to enter in Apple Creek Cemetery -- I'd rather send them to you for you to create her page.

RE: Thanks
Your very welcome. Just for information both the cemetery records and the Social Security Index list date of death as 20 Aug 1987 for Mr. Rutledge instead of the Sept. date on the memorial page.

Another Colburn Family in Wyanette
There was more than one Colburn family in Spencer Brok, but the Gardner Rice Colburn family lived near Green Lake and became Wyanette residents. Records on this family widely conflict, but it appears Mr Colburn was born Dec 5, 1816 in New Hampshire as was his wife, Lucy B._____. Their children Alfred, Charles and Lucy could have been New Hampshire born. The family moved to Wis in 1855 where Abbie, Ira and Martha were born. They settled in Spencer Brook in 1864. Indications are two more children were born here, one of them probably being Eugene. Mr Colburn died 1912 and there is a record of Charles Garner Colburn marrying, June 17, 1874 Ellen Heath. Alfred was a Civil War Soldier.

From the "Footprints in the Sands of Wyanette", by Anne Lewis. Booklet found at the Isanti Co. Historical Society.

RE: Gile and Colburn
Here is the reply that I received back from Kathleen at the Historical Society.

"Louisa Ellen Colburn (Hill) b.1846 d.1932—Not on list

Willet Gile, b.1845 d.1897 – Not on my list
Bertha Gile, b.1894 d.1907 – GRAVE No. 23

91 graves total and all accounted for except for Grave No. 22, next to Bertha. But since Louisa is not listed either, perhaps she and Willet are buried together in another cemetery. Do you know where they died?"

She also sent info on the plot numbers for the Colburn children. They are plots 67 through 71.

Hope this helps. MaryAnn

RE: Colburn
Your welcome Matt. Unfortunately the three graves listed for the Benson Cemetery were the only ones I saw there. It's a very small place in the middle of nowhere! I'll email you a photo of the cemetery so you can get a feel for it.

Hans Petersen
Recently I made a trip to the Thorne Cemetery with friends. It was interesting, as there is no road access. We obtained permission from the farmer to drive through his farm yard, up the hill to the cemetery.
I will let you decide how you would like to enter the following information for Hans and family members.
There is a listing of burials located near the entrance, with this listings for Hans and family members.
They are all in Lot 35 and without markers.
Hans Petersen, B. 1837 - D. 1909; Fenrik Thorvald Petersen B. 11 Feb 1889 - D. 14 June 1899, listed as son of Hans. Jorgine Petersen, 2nd wife of Hans, B. 3 March 1847 - D. 24 Sep. 1890. Christine Hansen Petersen, 3rd wife of Hans, she died 27 Aug 1910.
There are other Petersen buried here with variations of the last name.
If you would like additional information Barbara Christenson, 11410 Valley View Dr., Blair, NE 68008; phone 402-426-5371 was listed on the burials listings near the entrance.
