Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I became a member it seemed that being a photo volunteer was a natural fit for me. I still believe that but I'm afraid that I'm not much use to anyone during Winter. The snow drifts are formidable on the northern plains. I guess I have two seasons in my year, Winter and Cemetery Searching.
These past several years, while hunting up the graves of my own antecedents, I've been impressed with the beauty of the stones and the various expessions of grief and love exhibited in the cemeteries. Once I acquired a digital camera I began saving images of those.
One thing I've learned-for photographing tombstones a cloudy day works better. And I guess you could say it adds to the mood as well.

RE: Tostenson
I wasn't expecting a transfer, but I do have some records for this family from Vang, Oppland, Norway. (I have found Tosten Tostenson's 1842 baptismal record from Norway where it shows the same birth date as on his headstone. Also have the emigration record of the family leaving Norway in 1855.) Thanks!

Hughes family Emmetsberg
Hi, I am a relative of the Hughes family from Emmetsberg Iowa, Isobel was a sister of my grandfather Charles E and I am guessing that John A was one of his brothers. Are you related to these people, if so I would love to talk to you, Mary Petitt Feany

RE: Isaac Noggle certainly depends on the day, doesn't it? I photographed that entire cemetery, so you may hear from me again if you have more memorials there.

Thank you so much for the picture of this headstone. I am curious about the notation of who his parents are. Do you know if this is inscribed on the back of the headstone, and if not, can you tell me where the information comes from? Are you related? Edwin is my husband's 3X great uncle. I have been trying to pin down names for the prior generation. Thank you for any information you can add!

Are you truly Auntie Pat to tiny John W. Townsend born 12 March 1927 and died 24 March 1927 and buried in Dakota Cemetery in Nebraska?

There is a Patricia Townsend who had a younger brother John W. Townsend who grew up and married, etc. But I am wondering if there were a first John W. Townsend who lived a couple of weeks and you are his Auntie Pat?

RE: Barnett
Well, thank you very much for all the work you've done! I really appreciated the photos, as well. There ARE a lot of Brennans in the county, and I suspect you'll get transfer requests from family there!
