Bio and Links
I love the puzzle that is genealogy, and Find-A-Grave is a wonderful way to share the pieces that I've fit together.

Currently, I have young children, so it's difficult for me to get out and photograph graves, but would love to do whole cemeteries eventually. What a great resource!

I have many ancestors who have passed through the Charles City, Iowa and some eventually settled in Menahga, MN (Ash, Morgan, Hartman), and also from Garner and Forest City, Iowa (Jass and Bergan, Haut, Bahr, Kittelson,). The Jass family came from a part of West Prussia which is now in Poland (Schlochau or Człuchˇw), so I would love to eventually find connections for them from the old country. Other family names are Johnson, Nelson & Eklund (Port Wing, WI and Duluth, MN), also Roy, McMillen, Baldwin, Clapp, Sowder, Sidden, McReynolds, Marsh, Nitcher, and Guinall. If we're related, I would love to connect with you and share information. Just send me a message.

RE: Larry Thompson marker
Hi Jennifer,
I am guessing that this is a temporary marker until the family can put up a permanent one. The pole behind the cross has flower hooks at the top that likely held baskets of flowers over the spring and summer months. I haven't been to the cemetery in awhile, so would not have noticed the flowers. They were probably recently removed since we've had below freezing weather.

Again, I can only guess that this is Larry's grave - until I visit with the funeral home personnel. It's close proximity to his parents is what suggests it is Larry's grave marker.

Yes, it looks that way to me too. This cemetery had damage to the headstones many years ago.

RE: Carl Gottlieb Jass
Sorry for taking so long getting back to you. Yes I am a descendant of Carl Jass. I know for a fact that he also came from western Prussia in the Rhineland region. Jass is an unusual last name and I have always wondered if somehow the two are related but I have yet to figure it out. According to the family stories is that Carl is an illegitimate child and took his mother's maiden name. He was soon after adopted by the Stahlkopf's but kept the last name Jass.

Albert Jass / Elmwood
According to the records that I have for Elmwood, Albert is the only member of the Jass family that is buried there. Not related at all, just helping to get the cemetery on-line.

Have a great day!
