Find a Grave ID


Retiring in 2014, I have found a new pastime in helping others research their ancestors. All photo's I have submitted may be used without my permission. Any edits requested should be submitted by clicking on the "Suggest Edits" button just below the Memorial ID at the top of the memorial. There is also a "Suggest other corrections" button here to send me a more detailed explanation if desired. Please use this to request a transfer of a memorial - I will be glad to transfer if not a close relative of mine.

December, 2019 - I have been working on photographing all headstones at Oakwood Cemetery in Austin, Mower County, Minnesota. My goal is to complete Oakwood by the end of 2020 depending on the weather. Many of these memorials have been previously added to Find A Grave over the years - this project will update each memorial with GPS coordinates as well as add headstone photos to those memorials that don't have them, and add new memorials to Find A Grave as I discover new headstones.

If you are familiar with Oakwood Cemetery, I have completed photographing all sections except sections 6, 7, 8, and 9, (Sections 8 & 9 are each partially completed), adding and updating memorials, complete with headstone photos and GPS coordinates. When navigating to a memorial there is a link at the top of each - "Show Map" - that will display the location of the headstone on Google Maps in a separate tab. If the “Show Map” link is not available, the GPS location of the headstone has not been uploaded to the memorial.

Much help was given by contributors Dave, Janet, Kathy, Mitch, Shirley, along with many, many others, working in Mower County, Minnesota, getting memorials updated. Many thanks to them in "leading the way" by creating a majority of the memorials at Oakwood.
