Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interests - as they pertain to Find-A-Grave - are genealogy, photography, Civil War and Oregon & Santa Fe Trail history. I believe that family members, however distant, make the best managers of memorials, and therefore most of the memorials I manage are available for transfer. I try to visit at least one cemetery on each of my travels, for new memorials and new photographs, to help preserve the history of families and communities.

RE: Johann Haas (1875-1942)
A brief search of the following records revealed no other family therein.
Census records (after their marriage in 1905):
1910 - Union Twp, Woodward, Oklahoma
1920 - Nickerson, Reno, Kansas
1930 - Plevna Twp, Reno, Kansas

John was sibling to my grandmother, so to speak, Dorathea "Carrie" Haas Knop. Someday, I will pull out the Haas Family book of records, that their sibling "Lena" helped to compile, and recheck John & Theresa's family group again.

My best regards, -L

Instead of a transfer for Ernest, I placed him in the correct cemetery where you made your memorial. I have all the family information on the memorial I made in North Dakota. The family book with all the family trees, placed him in the same cemetery as his parents. I have very little information on his wife. I will delete my memorial of his wife Hazel. You have placed more information on her memorial than I. Could you please delete the memorial you made for Ernest? Do you still have the photo of their marker? If so, please place it on Ernest. I am adding the new information about where they are buried to the family book. Thank you Cindy.

Cain tombstone photo
Thank you for taking the Lewis & ALice Cain tombstone photo. I'd like to have a larger file/larger view if possible as this is hard to read the dates. If you have a larger file would you please post it and send it to

Thanks for catching the duplication! I have reached out to the other contributor and we'll work on eliminating the "burial unknown" memorial.

Unfortunately the rush to create memorials results in too many "Burial Unknown" entries which doesn't help the families nor those doing genealogical research.

If you have any other information which should be added to Ada's memorial, please let me know.
