My interest has always been in history. In the summer of 2004, I started a project on reclaiming an abandon graveyard in Northcote, Minnesota. There are many forgotten graves there, within and outside of the graveyard. Northcote is strong in history; James J. Hill, builder of the Great Northern Railway. He built a Bonanza farm for his son in Northcote, Minnesota, with the world's largest barns and silos. I thought part of the history in the Oakview Catholic Cemetery needed to be saving too! I received many notes from families that did not know where their loves ones where and now have a place to visit.
Since I started with one gravesite and I thought why not continue so many others can find their love ones.
Please take in consideration that I am not related to most in which I have added. I add them to Find A Grave so family members can find were their ancestors are buried. If you have other information on the graves I have updated please contact me- I would love to add to these graves. Especially pictures!
I have now listed my Mum with me, Mum's are a bit less costly than personal secretaries-lol.
