Paul....thank you so much for posting the pictures of my grandparents. Oh how much I love them. My heart aches as I write this. My brother, (grandson to Joe) Douglass Addison Sr is buried at Ft. Snelling and died 2/28/08 and my daughter, Kylie Ridde (great granddaughter) is buried at Tewksbury Cemetery in MA. (12/4/83-2/19/84)

Thank you again. Gayette Addison Riddle

John & Veronica Kubicek
Thanks for the transfer of John & Veronica Kubicek. I have added their obituaries & information. I had a very blurry picture of Veronica and added it, but have never seen a picture of John. Your work on findagrave is greatly appreciated. Chris

RE: John Alvin Malcomson, Jr # 136968664 Photo Request
Hi Paul

Thanks for letting me know. I was going by his obit in the Lime Springs Herald (Lime Springs, IA), 10 Aug 1939 which says "Burial was at Saratoga".

I guess it's not surprising there is no stone as that was often the case for infants.

I'll remove the request and make a notation of "no marker".

Thanks again.

Joseph Spillman
I have added the info in Harold's Bio.
If you live in Wash. St. You can request a obit for him (its free if you live in Wash. St.)
Otherwise they charge, but they will email you a copy. If you are interested I can get the link for you.

Any information on a missing grave?
Hi there! Do you have any record of a Frances Kakac buried at Saratoga Township Cemetery? She was the wife of Joseph Kakac, 1834-1920, #116559958. I just found out that she died in 1930 in Ohio, but was buried in Iowa. The information I found said that she was buried in Cresco, but I think it would make more sense that she was buried with her husband. I am about to order her death certificate, but I thought that I would ask you first, since you've done such a great job documenting the cemetery.
Thanks for any help.

RE: Memorial# 35535248 Anna Wilson Botamer (1880-1929)
Hi Paul,

I have no connection with the Botamer family. Law-Miller Roots did the original memorial. I was working with the North Murray Ridge Cemetery & their records to make all the North Murray Ridge Cemetery memorials as complete as possible.

RE: Buresch surname of Saratoga, Howard Co., Iowa
Hello. I am not related to the Buresh family. Frank & Frances' son who died this past week (Maurice Buresh) attended my church. Frances' maiden name was spelled Dvoracek in Maurice's obituary. Sorry I can't be of much help.

I noticed that the obit and death cert for the father is attached to the memorial of his son.

I also sent an edit for Marguerite Maruska correcting her maiden name, Ackerman. You have her first married name as her maiden name.

RE: Anna Maruska memorial #97402557
send you a private e-mail, as far as I know since the church was disbanded in the 1970's not sure where the church records ended up, possibly in Sioux Falls at the Diocesan Office of the Bishop, the nearest town with a Catholic Church is Scotland, they might have ended up there as well. Found some things on Ancestry which i have sent you. Other Czech community in this area are St. Wenceslaus at Tabor and St. George's at Tyndall, their is also a Bohemian/Czech National Cemetery in the area if she was Czech, most can be found on Find A Grave or the SD Gravestones Site.

RE: Pauline Bueckmann (1895-1967)

At the current moment I don't have any additional information for Pauline but I am working on adding more information for her and her family, in which some do not have memorials on find a grave. For the moment, until I can find the information I am just wanting to link her with her parents, siblings, & children, so as to be used as a genealogy took until I can make a proper memorial for them on here. She was my Great Aunt.

If you wouldn't mind transferring her to me, that would be great, so when I do find the information I can update her memorial.
