RE: Thanks for your other Photos and Memorials
So are you related to the Duley's? My great-great grandmother Celah Duley Rhoades would have been Meady's sister. I started researching the Rhoades side of my family four years ago as we knew nothing beyond my great grandfather ... which lead me to the Duley side. And low and behold when I went out to my parents for a visit a couple years ago I found the photos. The photos would have come from my grandfather Lewis Rhoades and I'm sure he got them from his father, Jacob "Jacie" Rhoades. I can't remember if I put all of the photos on Find A Grave or not but I will check and get back to you. I had been trying to find Meady and Alice for a long time and when my uncle came out in July he brought a file he had gotten from grandpa and it had the cemetery Meady and Alice are buried in. So anyway ... if you are related to the Duley's, and you are interested, I could e-mail the information I have put together which includes all of the photos I have. Just let me know and ... I would need your e-mail address. It's great to be able to pass the photos on. Carolyn

RE: Marjorie Rachow (Swenson) Schmidt
Thanks for the note. I didn't find a footnote with her name, but you indicated she was buried next to her husband so I added the headstone. Perhaps a footstone will be added later.

RE: Thanks so much for your Tributes!
No problem! Thanks so much for noticing! I like to "wander around" the site, especially by following links through my known family members' memorials, and leaving a small tribute of respect on each one, just to show that somebody looked at it and thought about that person for a little bit.

And I figure, a candle is a nice neutral thing that would be appropriate for every person, since you usually can't tell if the person was religious or not. Though I do leave child-appropriate ones for children, and if the memorial specifically says that someone was Methodist, I leave that specific cross.

RE: Thanks so much Ann May!
You are very welcome! I was nearby for a family reunion on my husband's side, and his grandfather and great-grandparents are buried there. When someone mentioned visiting the cemetery after the reunion I looked it up and found your request.

Tell your Aunt there is a board at the east end of the cemetery which lists names and locations. However, it's not a logical list (not alphabetical). Plus, the rows in the cemetery aren't laid out too neatly either, so counting rows can be confusing. Generally, Andrew and Julia Swedeen are buried on the north side (closest to the church) about halfway back from the main road.

I spoke with the cemetery sexton from the church before our visit and he was most helpful, even offering to come over and personally show us the graves we wanted to see. His name is Phillip Lundeen, and his telephone is 763-444-5357. Perhaps he could help her locate them if she has trouble.

If I can help with anything else please let me know.

Best wishes,

RE: beautiful headstone photos
You are most welcome. I'm honored to have added gravestone photos to your memorials. You've put together such wonderful tributes to show anyone who comes across them what special people they were. I wish everyone were so lucky as to have someone like you to remember them.

re: Lloyd Davidson buried at St. Johns
Good morning!

I got your note. I did walk the entire cemetery over several days and didn't find Lloyd Davidson. Or a marker anyways. I'm sure there are many unmarked graves in all the cemeteries I've walked. I would suggest calling the village of Centuria office to see if they have a contact for the cemetery. Their number is 715-640-7275.

For Maple Grove in Frederic I would suggest a call to the Village office as well. Their number is 715-327 4294.

If either one can give you the info you need you can add those memorials yourself.

Good Luck!
