Hi Linda,

Just to let you know the cemetery has not updated the headstone with death dates.

Evergreen cemetery
I just want you to know that your requests for them will be very difficult. The records to this place are sketchy at best. Its a city run place and they will tell you the same. If you d like to call them and get an idea of where they are,I have a map that can help. is the place you need to call. They are in charge of that as well.

Doretta Lovenburg #164851278
Some time back I wrote to you stating that there was only a Concrete Slab poured at the Lovenburg Grave sight for placing a headstone onto. I stated at that time that I would post the slab photo if you wanted me to, but I never heard anything back from you so I figuring that you did not wish for only the slab to be shown. After writing you about that issue a "Shirley H." posted a photo showing only the same mentioned concrete slab that I had mentioned. Since than a Headstone has now been installed, and I have now photoed and posted that Headstone set-up for Doretta I. Powell Lovenburg on her grave sight listing. Ronald

Linda, I posted a photo of the memorial for Gloria Bonkawicz as requested. There is a wreath semi-permanently wired to the stone so I pulled it back far just enough to photograph her name and dates.

RE: Dienes Jacobsen for Marensurname
Thanks--When I go to the National Archives, I occasionally see errors of transcription. It was kind of neat seeing your name there on the corrections lines too!

Hi, Linda--saw your name on the National Archives
I was following up on your Edit for Maren Kirstine (Hansen) Jacobsen, and saw that you, too, had filed an exception with the National Archives for the spelling of her first married name, Dienes. Thank you so much! They had already listed Dienes as an alternate on the National Archives, and I followed it up with a bit more detail--nice to see that the National Archives is so responsive!

Dienes Jacobsen for Marensurname
The Danish Museum lists only one surname for Maren Jacobsen, and it isn't hyphenated. They DO list both the Dienes and the Jacobsen, so I assume Maren Hansen first married a Mr. Dienes, and later a Mr. Jacobsen.

I can see I have to do some follow-up work, but unless there is a legal hyphenation, it is customary to only show one surname (else when people search for Maren later, they will never find her under either the Dienes' or the Jacobsens, and she will be "lost".

I haven't done my follow-up research yet on your Edit suggestions--it will help me if you would be so kind as to write and tell me how you know these to be true (family Bibles, census records, family stories--whatever). When I get done, I will let you know that it is complete, give you credit, and ask you to take one more look (sometimes family members prefer I NOT list them as source).

FindaGrave has the following guideline for multiple last names. The way it stands now, I will have to either refuse the suggested edit, and I want to learn about the maiden name Hansen for Maren. I want to get this right, and thank you in advance for working with me.

"Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links."
