Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm very much hooked on genealogy. Now that I'm retired I am willing to help others and fill photo requests for my area. This site has been a great help to me in finding information and photos and it's time for me to help others.

I'm currently photographing cemeteries in Hubbard and Eastern Becker county, Minnesota.
During the winter months I have been looking up obituaries to add to memorial pages that appear in the old Park Rapids Enterprise. If you are looking for an obituary you can email me but please make the request during the winter months.

I will add to, change, delete, and Correct any Memorial I've added.
I will be happy to Transfer Memorials according to FAG Guidelines but I will consider other transfers on an individual basis. Please State your relationship when asking for a transfer. I will not transfer Bulk name requests.

Please use the EDIT tab and SAC to ask for a transfer or to have me correct or add information and state your relationship to the person when asking for a transfer.

No need to ask permission if you want to use my photos for ancestry and personal use, but I do appreciate credit given to me for taking them.

Please do not take my photos and upload them to another page on Find a Grave. If you need a photo added to a different page just ask and I will add it.

If you want the Photo's for resale, for profit, permission is denied.

I am Researching these surnames: Reeser/Rieser, Dunham, Curphey, Newell, Lantz, Goble, Adams, Sullivan, Lamb, Bentley, Boyer, Chapin, Wangen, Meisenhelder and Ziegler.

In the event of my death or my becoming inactive for a long period of time I would like all my memorial pages passed on to my son DR Wangen #47374156.

Harry Cargill and his first wife
I edited out all the information on the wrong May Swaggerty Cargill memorial and will get it gone after we get him connected with the right Mae.

Thank you.

RE: Lawrence A. Heimark
Joan, I've been ill for quite some time. Just now trying to get back to normal, whatever that is.
If you haven't had a chance to get to the cemetery as yet, please consider this the reminder that you requested. Thank you so much!

Lee Manley and Edna Viola Manley
I was wondering where you obtained the information for Lee Manley (1910-1910)-memorial # 61469513- buried at the Sandridge Cemetery, Cedar County, Mo and Edna Viola Manley (May 6, 1910- July 27, 1910- memorial #105297764- you have her listed as being buried at the Stockstill Cemetery, Cedar County, Mo. Also you said you had found 3 different death certificates; one being "Ada". Before I go any further, their mother, Lillie (Cargill) Manley was my Great Aunt- her brother, Harry is my Grandfather. Anyway, Edna Manley is actually buried at the Sandridge Cemetery, Cedar County, MO and beside her is a field rock with Ada Manley on it. According to the Cedar County Cemetery book, it has Ada Manley listed as being born May 6, 1910 with an un-readable death date; also listing Edna Manley with the dates listed above. I cannot find anything else on Lee Manley. I have submitted photos of both girls headstones and I have presumed they were twins. But with you finding 3 death certificates, could they possibly have been triplets? Thank you very much for your time. Jan (Cargill) Dwerlkotte
