|Jason D||RE: Fairview Cemetery Federal Dam, Mn|
Yes, Christine Atherton is my grandmother. Her Maiden name was Christine Fisherman. She died in Grands Forks,ND on August 27,1960. According to her death certificate she was born on October 20th, 1933. She was married to James William Cloud, my grandfather, who according to his death certificate was born on June 2nd, 1916 in Ponsford, MN, and Died on August 13th, 1955 at the Lutheran hospital in Bemidji, MN.
Margaret Cloud was one of their children who died on dec 25th, 1955 in Pike Bay township, MN. Which I assume would be at the Indian Health Services hospital in Cass Lake, MN.
Elizabeth Smith White is Christine's Mother who died in a house fire in Federal Dam in Dec.1962. Her Maiden name was Smith and she was from the Fond Du Lac Reservation.
I would appreciate any help you can give. Obviously the years from 1955-1962 were years of immense grief and loss for my mother, and her siblings. I think that a memorial service this summer, with the placing of headstones, would help them heal. Also, I am a history major at BSU and I am thinking about what I want to do for my senior thesis. I think that I would like to juxtapose my families history with the greater history of Minnesota Ojibwe history. So I am in the beginning stages of compiling our family history. Thank you!

I saw your name attached as the compiler of a list of those buried in the Fairview Cemetery in Federal Dam, MN. I have four family members buried there, but none of their graves are marked properly. I want to mark their graves correctly, but I don't know who is who. I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction. Thank You for your time.

|Armstrong History||Margaret Armstrong Wymore|
I was very imoressed with your background and research. I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction - as we are new to family research.
We are looking to connect with children / relatives of Margaret Armstrong Wymore.
My grandfather, Ottie Armstrong (who died when my father - Harold L Armstrong was six years old) was a brother to Margaret Armstrong Wymore.
My email address is: email@example.com
Thank you for any suggestions!
I just found this Find A Grave website a few weeks ago and it is wonderful! When the snow melts (here in Wisconsin!) I hope to help others by taking pictures of their family grave markers.
|Denise Gill||Marin buried at Greenwood Cemetery|
Hello, thank you for transferring the two Marin memorials over to me for management. That was kind of you. ;). Would you please consider transferring the other Marin memorials as well? They are all family members and I'd love to link them all and create nice bios for them with our family history and photos. Thank you for your time and considerations.
|Kathy Ripke||Albert Miller buried in Bemidji|
I just wanted to publicly thank tou for all the help you gave me with this memorial and to thank you for it's trandsfer into my care. I have made the adjustments and additions and links. Thank you again for all your efforts on my behalf.

It would be so great if someone would go in and do some clean up in this cemetery as it has just been neglected. Maybe we could find some more stones then. My wife is related to the McKnight family and others buried there and my mother in law says it was once called the McKnight Cemetery. We live in Washington state so it is hard for us to do anything to help. My wife left there when she was young but used to go back when ever she could to visit her Grand parents. Her grandfather (Clyde Saddler)was a mail carrier there for many years.
