Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in southwestern Minnesota and now live in the Twin Cities.

My wife introduced me to genealogy in 1998. Since then I've discovered a little Scottish in my otherwise Norwegian and German ancestry.

The cemeteries of Rock County, Minnesota (Maplewood, St. Catherine's Catholic and Memory Gardens also known as Restlawn Memorial Gardens, and Luverne Memorial Gardens) are of particular interest to me.

My goal is to keep families connected to their ancestors through Find A Grave. I will gladly transfer memorials to family members.

Please submit any additions or corrections to me under "EDIT" and "SUGGEST A CORRECTION" on the memorial site.

RE: Isabelle Meyer's memorial, Maplewood Cemetery, Luverne MN
Isabelle Meyer was the sister of Carolyne Meyer. Caroline was the first wife of my grandfather Johann Carstensen. This first marriage was documented in family records in my possession.

Isabelle is listed on the 1910 census in Rock County, MN living with her parents John and Doris. She is also listed on the 1900 census with her parents and her sister Carolyne.

RE: Franc Hadler Memorial, Maplewood Cemetery
I have a copy of His Minnesota Death Certificate Which I had found in the Minnesota Historical Library and Museum in St Paul the Index # is 1946-MN-021366 if you wish I could send you a copy but I would need your email address to send the attachement. Unless you would like me to attach it to the memorial if I can find out how to do that.
or if you would prefer you can go to and his PID is 246C-MVM the death certificate is attached in Memories and also as a Source.

RE: Mina Helene Skattum Johnson Memorial

I've also been unable to find any death record for Mina except for her listing (101000850)showing her 1948 death. She is buried with her husband Eli N Johnson. While the Apr 1940 census has the family farming in Martin TS, Rock County, MN, his Apr 1942 Draft Reg. indicates the family was then living in Hills, Rock County, MN. His 1960 death record shows Rock County, MN.

It seems likely that Mina (Minnie H in 1940 census)also died in Hills or at least Rock County, MN. But again, I can't find any death record.
