|Dennis Harmsen||Puck Photos|
You requested two gravestone photos for Heinrich and Antje Puck in the Durant Cemetery, Durant, Iowa. Sorry to say, there is no visible gravestone on either gravesite. There is however a burial plot location for each, which is given on the memorials. The (N/S) after the burial location stands for (No Stone). I did post a photo to each memorial, "Unmarked Grave", but these should be "No Gravestone". Maybe I can provide a better photo to post for those that have no gravestone. Sorry if there is nothing to provide.

I was at Chester Hill cemetery today. I was looking for Marcella and Millicent Milbrath. I found that Marcella was married to Herbert Hamann and Millicent was married to Arnold Hamann.
I will post pictures as soon as I transfer them from my camera to computer.

I wasn't suggesting that you were part of the problem. Local custom is almost impossible to break.
Thank you for your generosity with the photos. I'll use them to fill photo requests.

|MarillaW||Using your photos|
I spent Saturday morning trying to sort out the confusion here on Find a Grave for Heron Lake cemeteries - city, Catholic and township. Mostly I stick to Cottonwood County cems but Lowell Tjentgen of the Cottonwood County Historical Society pointed out that a lot of people were being put into the township cem who really belonged in the city. Published obituaries are especially unhelpful as they routinely refer to Lakeside as "the Heron Lake Cemetery" and Sacred Heart as "the Heron Lake Catholic Cemetery."
I photographed all visible stones at Township and have entered them. Then I wrote to the makers of the ones without headstones suggesting that they may wish to consider whether they needed to relocate their page. In some cases I was able to prove my point with photos taken elsewhere.
However, I was not able to find the stone of Torkil Dieson in Lakeside. I wonder if I could copy and post your photos here to Find a Grave. Never? Only in extreme circumstances like this? Routinely? I would, of course, credit them to you.

I have found a Laura Johnson and Lorna Blade that match the birth and death dates of the Milbraths you have been looking for. They are both buried right next to a Laura K. and John F. Milbrath. This is in Chester Hill Cemetery. Let me know if this is right and I can email you the photos.

You are very welcome! I am glad I could do it, and find the stone!!
