Bio and Links
Bio Photo Shortly after the Moravian Church in the small town of Aurelia, ND. closed in the early 70's, an association was formed to look after the cemetery.
It was renamed the Aurelia Community Cemetery. I was elected to the board a few years later when one of the original members died. About ten years ago I helped my sister work on our family tree and now when I found Find A Grave, I realized how helpful it could have been.
This information was mostly taken from the tombstones at cemeteries I have visited, with some added from our family tree and ND death index files. I also get information from the Mouse River Loop Genealogy Society, of which I am a member.Most of these cemeteries are located in northwestern North Dakota.
With over 75,000 names in about 675 cemeteries, I'm sure I have made some mistakes. If anyone finds any errors or has more information let me know.I have photos (about 60,000) of the markers of most of the graves added in the last few years. I do not have time to add all these pictures but if someone requests one I will gladly add it if I have one. Please put Find A Grave in subject line.
Most of the obituaries I have added are from local funeral homes or old newspapers with their permission. All pictures that I have added were taken by me personally.

I found M Slapnicka in Mohall Cemetery spelled
Stapnicka #11160510 after I entered a new one with a photo, #177789571. I think you could delete. DKauffman

Solberg
In checking the photos in the Mohall Cemetery I found these Three Sobergs spelled Solberg and all info the same on both entries. I suggest you delete these three. #11160473 #11160474 and #92914537,

CORRECTION
I spelled my mother's first name incorrectly, it should be REGNA.

Sorry about that. Leon

Thank you Herb for providing a tombstone for Fred Carroll. I noticed that you applied Rosetta Jane Peary birth and dead dates to Fred Carroll.

Do you know anything about Rosetta's first husband Mr. Flynn (The name Flynn is on Rosetta's tombstone)

Fred Carroll
Came across your Fred Carroll and am wonder if he is the one married to my 2nd cousin twice removed Rosetta Jane Peary born Aug 28 1851 in Pennsylvania and died 6 Nov 1939 in Ryder ND. I am also looking for her other husband Mr. Flynn and that's all I know about him.
I do have dates for Rosetta husband, Fred which are 14 Feb 1868 born in New York and died 8 Oct 1941 in Minot, Ward Co., North Dakota.

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
