Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired Flight Attendant who started doing genealogy in the late 1980s. My family research has focused on Springfield, MO for the Painter and Lindenbower families, Pennsylvannia for the Clarkson and Hendry families, and Washington state and Alaska--descendants of all four families ancestors. I find the detective work in family research very satisfying and would love to be of any assistance to those seeking information in the Carpinteria, California area.

Minnie Mae Culbertson
I am in Eau Claire, WI. Minnie taught in Eau Claire in 1889-1890 at the Jefferson Public School.
She is listed in the 1885 City Directory as being a clerk in Eau Claire.
Do you have any info other than her marriage to Carl Phillip Kreischer?
My grandfather, Henry Running, had her as a teacher 1889-1890. I have the notebook he made in her class. Very difficult for anyone at his age but well done. Mostly dots with string from from one dot to another. Reminds me of a drafting project. He did become a fine carpenter.
When I found it the only printing is her name and his name.
Any info is greatly appreciated. Thank you, Joann

RE: Mary Etta Lindenbower
You are very welcome, Judy. It was an interesting story and since I had the time, I wanted to delve into it a little more. Sorry their lives didn't end so well. Regarding your "uncle" William, I would suggest checking sources through Wyoming since one of the articles I read said hew had lived there. If he had hurt himself in a mining accident he must have lived with relatives. What do you think? Then there is always the misspelling of names on the Federal census! Please feel free to contact me if you think there is something else I can check on for you here in the Black Hills.

There are so many more cemeteries and not all graves have been added to Find A Grave. To fill in some of my time last night in Deadwood (my hubby was working) I walked around Mt. Moriah cemetery and must have found a dozen grave sites that didn't have a photo on Find A Grave and a few that weren't even listed. There are hundreds buried in the Potters Field sections so he could still be there. I looked at one list on the South Dakota site, and I also looked at the City of Deadwood's Mt. Moriah list an he is not there either. Keep me posted. I hope you are enjoying vaction!

RE: Hulda Ostlund
Hello Judy,

Thank you for contacting me. Hulda Ostlund was my Grandmother. But before I give out my aunt's contact information, is it possible to get the name of the person who is interested about Hulda. I do remember her taking a trip to Washington, but can not remember if it was a relative or a friend.

Thank you

Don't know if they are the same. My source info could have been wrong. Don't have the record now to verify.

RE: Mary Lindenbower request
You can view the plot and location on the Deadwood City web site.
Just Google "Mount Moriah Deadwood SD" and pick the Mount Moriah site. Once you are on the site, there is an interactive map you can click on the right side of the web picture. It takes a little time to load, be patient, and it allows you to do a search of a name, and then gives you the plot number and shows the location on the map ariel view. Send an email if any problems.

Hi Judy,
There are not words to thank you enough for this picture. It is all I have of my Mother. I have been searching for years and finally got this information from her death certificate. I only wish now I could contact this Poletti family to see if I could have a picture to leave my family. Thank you, Barbara Hazen Byrd
