Bio and Links
I'm new to FindAGrave, but have been into genealogy for a long time. I'm mostly interested in Steichen and Pramann, but I'll be adding memorials for anyone I see missing as I go along. There are also a few local cemeteries with sparse coverage on here that I plan to complete. If you see anyone you want to manage, just ask. If it is someone that's more closely related to you than I then I'll send them right over. I enjoy fulfilling photo requests, but usually only on a limited schedule. So when I have the time I search out open requests in my area and try to fill them.

Good luck to my fellow searchers out there. I hope I can be of some help.

RE: grave information

Thank you for your quick reply. I sent a letter to the Zion United Methodist Church in South Haven. I never got a reply. My grandparents Wilhelm & Emilie Schmidt are both buried in the Zion United Methodist Cemetery. The letter was in regard to my grandparents bibles. As of yet I have not located them. With all the children of my grandparents being deceased it has been a difficult task. None of my relation in MN has no idea who may have them. As for my grandparents the Tolzmann's I get the same answer.
Any help would be appreciated.

grave information

Do you know who the Sexton is for the Gethsemane Cemetery? I am trying to find the graves of my great grandparents. I know they died in Fairhaven, Staerns, MN Their death certificates list place of burial as Fairhaven. They are not listed in the Fairhaven Cemetery or the Concordia Cemnetery.
William & Dorothea Tolzmann. Their graves must not have a gravestone, as I have checked both cemeteries.

Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for taking these 2 photos for me. I appreciate your time and efforts. It was quite a while ago but I can't remember if I thanked you and wanted to be sure you knew I did appreciate it.
