Patrick Offeren
I am trying to locate a brother of our grandfather who immigrated from Holland, born 2 May 1880 - named Cornelius Van Offeren.
I have reason to believe that Patrick Offeren may be him. Any assistance you can give me in obtaining his death information would be greatly appreciated.

Gail, I am doing a FH chart for Roy PEMBLE, who now lives in Sugar Land, TX, he is a grandson of Michael and Thelma BABIC.
Roy and his wife are good friends of ours and i am currently ending what I can find on the BABIC family and will be going on to the family of FINK next [I think] Thelma's husbands family.
My e-mail is if you care to make contact.
I would appreciate your views on my discoveries and see if there are any glaring mistakes..or not.........
Sincerely, Beryl

RE: Joe and Sue Ringsmuth
Hi Gail - Thank you for your work on Find A Grave! I am related to the Ringsmuth tree through Wanda (Coonts) Ringsmuth. She and I share common ancestors with the Knutson family. I was working to decipher the Ringsmuth family tree and noticed your memorial listings. Thank you! A date discrepancy caught my attention (SS and Veterans listings for Joe David Jr.) and so I thought I would leave a comment. My best to you! Stephen Reed

Hi Gail.
Thank you for giving my Grandfather Otto Saily to me to take care of him.
I just found your message and I realize I am late getting back to you.
I am now 81 years old and trying my best to get caught up. I started working on the family trees in 1952.
I also want to thank you for taking care of some of my other relatives.
Sincerely Yours, Patsy Brown.

RE: George Archibald Curry
Thank you - I'll remove the mausoleum reference - his obit must have been incorrect.

Added by Cathy on Aug 19, 2016 1:06 PM

George Archibald Curry
I processed your edit for the burial location - but is that a location in the mausoleum? His obit says that he is buried in Riverside mausoleum. Is that incorrect? Should it just be "Blk 2, Lot 2" - is that the location of the large "Curry" stone. I thought that also marked the burial location for Solomon S & Elizabeth Curry.

The McLeod stones next to the large stone are related since his grandmother Anna Wood was married 2nd to Alexander McLeod. John A McLeod (1854-1916) would have been her son & Stanard 1890-1891 probably the sone of John A.

Is there someone else that is interested in these headstones? I'm happy to transfer any of the Curry's since they are very distant relatives.

Hi Gail,

While I was doing my searching tonight, I noticed you started memorials on my grandparents, Paul Hoskins (#129798354 & #129798353) and Helene Hoskins, who are buried in Cemetery of the Pines in Boulder Junction, WI. I added pics of both of them and updated dates and names. I was wondering if you could get recent pics of their headstones if you are in the area. We moved to CA in Jan 2014 so it's hard for me to get recent pics. If you aren't able to I understand.

I was going to start their pages before I came acros them on here tonight. Thank you for your time.
