RE: Olaf Brekke (1878-1941)

Have transferred Olaf & Clara's memorials to you.

Originally the year of death was from his marker. On the ND Department of Health, Public Death Index, it gives the date and county of death. So that is where that information came from. On the site it shows Ole J. Brekke, not Olaf.

Best wishes,
judy aka High PLains :)

RE: Olaf Brekke (1878-1941)
Susan, I did remove the person who was listed as his father on his memorial and added your great bio information. I was even more uncomfortable with the "father" on his memorial when you found he was one year younger than previously believed.

Are you related? I would be happy to transfer your family's memorials to your care.

Best wishes,
High Plains :)

Olaf Brekke (1878-1941)
Hi Susan,

You are linking his parents to him - his father would have been 15 when he was born. Are you sure this is the right father? (John Brekke 1863-1928)

Clara Breke edit
You sent links to her parents - last name spelled Breimon.

You want her maiden name added as Bremmon??

Kelly Kimes
You placed a photo of three children of the memorial for Lt Kelly Elkins Kimes. By any chance would he have been at school in Tuolumne County, graduating in 1956? Years don't match but I thought I would ask.

Just wanted to Thank you for the research shared on findagrave. Appreciate your time and efforts. As fellow addicted genealogist I know how much work went into it.
My maiden name is Burgess. Where are your Burgesses from? Always great to meet an internet cousin.

Rev. Otis Fisher
I was out at Oak Woods today and I photographed your Rev. Otis Fisher's tombstone. His daughter Hattie, her husband, and infant son were listed on the back of the tombstone. Unfortunately, I can't make a date out for the infant son in my photo. The next time I get back to Oak Woods, I'll get a good look at the stone and enter a correct date. By the way, her married name was Janes.
