Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a 51 year old Mom to 4 girls (ages 15-22-25-30) and Busha (Polish for grandma) to 5 awesome grandchildren 4 girls and 1 boy. My grand-daughters are ages 2,3,8 & 10 and my grandson is age 5. I was baptized into the LDS church in 1981 and a few of years after that I really found a love of genealogy. I have been doing my genealogy for over 27 years! I am currently (2014-2015)serving a mission for the LDS church as a support person for I have a relatively small family. My Mom and her sister both had only 2 children. My Busha had only 2.

My husband though, is far different, being one of 10 and his dad being one of 14! He is the 3rd generation family sexton in Grandview Cemetery. My husband's family was the 2nd one to settle here after the logging companies. I have traced a couple of my family lines back to the 1600's. I have helped many people that have family from here in Drummond and Grandview area as we have their centennial books that have school census', pictures and stories of many of the settlers and logging companies. These are a WEALTH of knowledge. I once looked up a person's family and sent her scanned pictures of her relatives and she had the picture but didn't know the people in it! Her ancestors were on the baseball team in 1900! This is also why I also belong to Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness (RAOGK). I grew up from age 4 to adult in Hayward Wisconsin so I will be fulfilling those requests too as I have family there as well. My stepmom still lives in my childhood home on the Namekagon River. I love helping others not just find their relatives but learning about their ancestor's life.

If you see something you want changed, added, or edited let me know. Please ask for a transfer if you wish to add info that isn't available to me or if you want to manage a family member's memorial.

Hi Carrie,
I have kept your msg from a year ago and read it often. I have hit a brick wall with my death information and a cemetery location on my GGGrandfather...John Darwin. His wife was Selinda LaPorte Darwin and they immigrated from Canada. The last I knew of them he was abt 82 living in Iron River WI. I can't find either a death cert (cuz I don't know when or where he died) or where they could be buried. If you ever run across anything on them, PLEASE let me know.
Thanks and Blessings to You!

Nelson family
I am trying to obtain more info about the Nelsons in Grand View Cemetery and their link to the Nels Nelson descendants on Madeline Island. I'm also trying to locate other members of the Nelson family that settled in southern Wisconsin. Martin Nelson (interred at Grand View) was Nels' brother. If there is an obituary for Martin, it may help identify additional ancestors and kin.

Pvt Richard P. Schlies
Pvt Richard P. Schlies was a soldier in Company E 26th Infantry Regiment 1st Infantry Division. He was killed on 4 August in Sicily. Private Schlies was buried in the temporary American GELA Cemetery in grave F-62-735. After the war his remains were repatriated and buried in the Union Cemetery in Mellen, Wisconsin.

Over 1,200 men and women were buried in the Gela Cemetery between 1943-1947. I am writing a book about the GELA cemetery and want to include the picture you took of his grave. Can I have your permission, of course you will be credited and notified when the book will be finished next year (2013)

thank you
