|Kevin Walters||RE: Bendix Jacobi Knutson|
Hi again Lannie,
The snow is nearly gone, so as promised I visited the Highview Christiana Cemetery today to find Anna & Bendix Knutson's gravestone. I have a list of all the people buried there which was compiled in May 2009. Anna and Bendix names are listed on it as being in plot P30 (Anna) & P31 (Bendix). I have a plot map of the cemetery, so I was able to locate their graves easily, and they are listed a being buried (each) in a vault... The unfortunate news is...they have no markers. I took several pictures of the area where they are buried, including the gravestones on either side of their plots. There is a marker for P27 (Amelia McDonald), P28 has nobody listed as being buried there, P29 is a Clara Knutson (no marker) P30 & P31 Anna & Bendix Knutson (no markers) and P32 & P33 (Manard & Dagney Christenson). I am sure you wouldn't want me to post those pictures on find-a-grave with no headstone or marker, but I would gladly send them to you if you wish. I feel bad when I can't get a picture of a marker! Please let me know what you would like me to do....Kevin
The cemetery is quite close to us and if noone gets to it before we can, we will take care of it. I'll check to see if claimed before we go. BUT, it will have to wait 'till the snow melts (3-4 weeks maybe).

Hi again Lannie,
We have a considerable amount of snow on the ground now, but when the weather breaks I will look for this one, I live in Dakota County, (an easy one!). Also, I wanted to ask you if 'Jan Nemec' your GG Grandfather may have another spelling?....the reason I ask is because I do remember seeing a name similar to that, but I think the first name was a little different, and there may have been an extra letter to the last name, it was an old flat in the ground stone about the size of a mouse pad. We will be down in that area in the Spring, I'll try to get a picture of it at least...
|Kevin Walters||RE: Jan F. Nemec|
You are welcome! One other thing... there is a Church just down the road located at 4938 N. Washington St. called "Church of the Most Holy Trinity" (this Church is listed on the National Register of Historic Places listings in Rice County, Minnesota, and is the only Church we saw in the area). By the name of the Church, it appears to be Catholic, as is the Saint John's Cemetery. If this Church is associated with the Cemetery, it could be they have burial records. If at any time you can get any additional grave location info on Jan F. Nemec, don't hesitate to let me know, I will return to check it out... On a personal note, It was finding my G-G Grandfathers grave than instantly got me hooked on my family history!
|Kevin Walters||Jan F. Nemec|
We visited Saint John's Cemetery in (Veseli/Wheatland) MN today, I regret to say we could not locate a grave marker for 'Jan F. Nemec'.
It is not a large cemetery, and 2 of us were able to verify all the gravestones in 1/2 hr-45 min.
There were a few stones which were unreadable, and several areas among existing gravestones which would indicate areas of unmarked graves. The entire cemetery is located on the slope of a hill, so there was not much snow covering any of the ground-level markers (there didn't appear to be many of this type anyway). If you can find any other info about this person's burial, please let me know, I will gladly re-visit the cemetery and look again.

I will be happy to do it, but it might have to wait till spring depending on how deep the snow is in the cemetery:)
I noticed your posting to Amy Bradfield about Frank Stepka, so since I had the dalbydatabase up researching other family members, I plugged in Frank Stepka. There are three listed.
go to: www.dalbydatabase.com, to get the actual cemetery the correct Frank is buried in.
Hope this helps! sns
Here's what I found:
