RE: Petersburg Pioneers
Valerie, it's funny, but as I was going through my items I saved from Grandma and Grandpas' I found a copy of the book that you sent to me. Still in excellent condition.

RE: Chris Tveten

Thank you for your work and dedication, you sent some great tidbits of information. I would love to find more information about the Hadlands in Petersburg. You have put me on a quest.

Thank you

RE: Petersburg Pioneers
Kathy sent me an e-mail detailing that she could scan them into PDF files and send them to me. I really appreciate both of you helping me so much with all of this.

Petersburg Pioneers
Valerie, you wouldn't happen to know where I can find the information in the Petersburg Pioneers book? The only copy I can seem to find is about $280.00.

I appreciate the pictures, Valerie. She is my father's maternal grandmother, so I have gotten most of her information already. Once again, thanks for the pictures.

Kupreanof gravestones
Hi Valerie,
I guess I started a whole discussion asking about my great grandfather Nels Peter Swanson's gravestone from 1917.
In looking at the type of granite they used for headstones, I wonder if someone with a metal detector could run it over the vegetation and get a hit on buried stone slabs? Or detect nails in the coffins...
It could work.

Valerie, thanks for your note. I noticed some discrepancies in names and dates betweeen markers and the Petersburg cemetery listing, but have not worked through all the mismatches yet. I'm still trying to add in the photos...have only made it thru the "J"s so far...has taken much more time than I anticipated, but I think it is worthwhile to get them all in, and would like to have them as correct as possible. You can contact me directly versus going through findagrave as that may be easier.

You did it, thank you! I love all the moss around my dads marker too!

Thanks again!
