Hi, according to her sister, Judith's obituary, Alice had an infant daughter, Connie. Have you checked with the Nodaway County Historical Society for Alice's obituary? Sure they probably have it. I live 1/2 mile from this cemetery and know the Helzer descendants.

RE: Nils Hjelm Family
Thank you very much for the kind words. Sometimes you just wonder why there is no information for someone, and then a wonderful person like yourself fills in a blank, and everything can take off. I'm glad my work proved useful. Best wishes for a great Mother's day to you! Ace

Earl Marshall Hyde 3313417
Hello. Did you know Earl?

There is a marriage record for Earl Marshall Hyde and Bertha Marshall 6 Aug 1960 in Fall River County, South Dakota.

I am thinking this may be Bertha Viola WELLS Marshall or Bertha V BRAKKE Hyde Find A Grave #30208902.

In either case, Earl could not have been married to Viola A BARKER Mons at that time.

What do you think?

She had a very legible stone that was well preserved. It photographed nicely. It was actually a pleasure to collect it. Thanks for the opportunity.

RE: Sarah Butler Higdon
There is no stone for her but the cemetery records has she is next to him. I did go back to the cemetery and take a photo of the area next to him and put it out there. I paid for copies of burial records from City Hall so I am trying to locate graves no longer marked or possibly buried and uncover them. I am putting a picture of the section marker and location in case someone is searching for the grave.

RE: Clarence Young
So happy to do it, especially when people like you add them in a timely manner. So people never do and I send them to Find A Grave to do it for me. It makes the memorials more than just names and dates. Thanks!!!!

RE: Darlene Pitcock
Darlene is distant kin. Just trying to link families that are related to me together. She was married three times and kept what appears to be her first and third husband's last names. You do not need to transfer. Thanks for the updates.

Re: Verba Jane Sparks
Loy, thank you for all you do!!

Regarding Verba Jane Sparks, there may have been two womens with the same name. I saw the image posted that says Verba Jane was a daughter of John Spencer. An obituary from the Wright County Republican, printed 4 Nov 1954, shows three brothers and three sisters -- all children of William Coffman and Louisa J. Malone (I descend from William's first wife, Susannah Presley). The childrens' names match.

The Wright County Republican, 4 Nov 1954:

VERBA JANE SPARKS, 88, died Saturday. She had 110 survivors--104 of them were descendants. Survivors are 5 daughters, Margaret Sanders, Sally Lloyd, Susy Dear, Elizabeth Leaper and May Dake; 4 sons, Richard, Clarence, W. G. and Jack; 3 sisters, Eva Walls, Becky Garner and Lucy Campbell; 3 brothers, Ples, Joe and Fred Coffman. Burial in Oak Grove Cemetery.

What do you think?

Albert Miller in Evergreen, Brainerd, MN

As noted in my problem report, the upright marker is badly tilted. I will take the photo later in June after it has been straightened up by the cemetery grounds crew. In the meantime, you can view Albert Miller's death index entry which gives his parents names. You can also contact the Crow Wing County Historical Society and ask for his obit if he has one. The will scan and send as a pdf.

I have found Sam McGowan..........he was Mamie O. Iley McGowan Boolen's son and he is buried at Ringling Memorial Cemetery, Ringling, OK and her husband is buried at Roberta, OK in Wolf Creek Cemetery.
Now here is what is strange to me..........Mamie is an Iley and in Wolf Creek Cemetery is where Georgia Emma Sinclair Iley is buried!!!!!

Hope this makes sense for it is early morning.....hahaha.....and I am not an early morning person.
