Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family history for 30 plus years. My military service allowed me to visit many parts of the country where my ancestors lived and are buried. Walking the oldest cemeteries and finding an ancestor's grave is one of the most gratifying aspects of genealogy. Now we can walk the cemeteries during the winter months using findagrave ! Online research has greatly helped with finding unknown records.

RE: Alexander Peru # 12234240
Alexander's death record gives his father's name as Josette. That's as far back as I can go. He emigrated from Canada around 1822. I have never seen any connection to the NY family but that doesn't mean there isn't any. Alexander did have a daughter named Martha May b 1859 but I have that she married Ellison Dunn. I can trace Ellison Dunn but never find Martha so I assume she died. Let me know if I can answer any more questions. Jayne

Thankful Webster Harrington
Hi Greg,

Glad to set these memorial up. These are also my ancestry. The only problem is that there headstone may have been damage by a farmers cows as there headstone can't be found.

RE: Cairo Cemetery Fairfax MN
I'm guessing he was born in NY and married to Amy from the 1895 MN census. The Cairo cemetery is the Methodist cemetery - from what I can tell, it wasn't a city cemetery. There are two larger cemeteries very close to the city, a Catholic, St Andrew and a Lutheran (split on FindAGrave in two) St John and St John's. Both churchs are still going. Do you know by chance what religion Wm might have been? I checked the 'neighbors on the census' and the Bregel family was Catholic. A search of the area found just one close Clark, Jane, in McLeod county, born 1821 but her stone said she was married to a Thomas Clark. Feel free to use my email address if you'd like also. Oh, there are many, many small church cemeteries in the area around Fairfax.
