Bio and Links
I am a historian, author, and photograph historian. In 2007, I self-published "Dakota Uprising Victims: Gravestones & Stories." It deals with the gravestones or markers of the victims of the Dakota Indian Uprising of 1862 in Minnesota. A narrative accompanies each photograph of the gravestone. I am continuing to work on the subject of the Dakota Uprising.

Thank you for giving me the management of my 2 G Grandfather's brother. This will be the longest memorial page ever!! I included all of John Garske's diary story of the family. You will notice I did add another photo of the headstone because you were missing the veteran symbol at the bottom. They claimed he was a member of the Calvary so I wanted to make sure the symbol could be viewed. Thank you for creating the memorial page and writing what you could find about Hubert Schmitt.

Dakota Uprising Victims
Hi Curtis, I am a fan of your book! Very surprised to accidently come across your contributor page on Findagrave, but here you are. A friend lent me their copy of your book to read. Very good book & I thoroughly enjoyed it. Our Museum definitely must have a copy in our Archives Research Library.

Charles Tyler memorial
Hello, Curtis,
My GGrandmother was Charles Tyler's sister, Harriet Evelyn Tyler. I would like to connect Charles' memorial to his mother, Pauline Cottrell (Bentley) Tyler #86767847 and his father, Mose Tyler #86766755. Or, if you would transfer the management of Charles' site to me, that would be great and I will take care of it. Thank you, Cathy

Thanks for your Dakota War books.
I just discovered these books at the Brown Co Hist Soc yesterday and checked out two at the library. Fantastic work!!!
I am working with someone who is trying to create a virtual cemetery here on Find A Grave of all casualties, participants and even some descendants of the Dakota Wars. He project is ambitious, mine more limited. She is out of state so I am doing leg work here for her, specifically photography. Yours are quite impressive and will save me many miles of travel. I live in Windom so can go in just about any direction to sites and graveyards with relevance.
I have also agreed to do completely the Iberia Cemetery in Stark Twp, Brown County which their librarian assures me has many graves from this time. She has given me a copy of their reading which I will submit as a spreadsheet, then photograph.
If there is anything I can do to assist you, I would be glad to do so.

Oak Ridge Cemetery
I see you put up a memorial in Oak Ridge Cemetry in Brown County MN. I am curious if you had access to burial records for that cemetery. If you did I would be very greatfull for any information regarding their location or how I might gain access to them. I feel certain My GFather is burried there but cannot verify it as there was no marker installed and we wish to erect one.

New Ulm Cemetery entries
I was so delighted to see your historical naratives & photos on your New Ulm Cemetery memorials. New Ulm is so rich in history & our most interesting cemetery is begging to have more entries on Findagrave! You are so qualified to "tell the story" of many of the New Ulm settlers.
I have entered just a few of the New Ulm settlers on Findagrave & if you have info or pictures to add, please feel free to do so. Or if it would be simpler to transfer the memorial to you I could do that.
Thanks for the information you have entered on Findagrave.
