|Bio and Links|
I am a Minnesota native and grew up in the southern part of the state near Mankato & Mapleton and that is where most of my relatives are interned. My husband grew up in Iowa so our family tree treks take up all over the midwest. We now reside in Rochester. |
Most of my side is from Germany and England. His side mostly Scotland with some Germany. We are carrying on a tradition that his mother dearly loves, but unable to do at this stage in life.

I was unable to locate a grave for Harleft Whitney, and the memorial # you gave me is for someone different.

I'm so sorry I put this of for so long. The references have been changed. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I've been battling Pancreatitis for several months, and have let everything slide. So sorry.

You are very welcome. I'm glad I was able to help. These old cemeteries tend to be well kept. Some stones have fallen over, but in general stones are in good shape. A big problem is lichen growth which obscures some of the writing.
