Since I have scanned so many funeral cards and obituary's lately I have decided to post these items on Fridays, hence the title Funeral Friday.

Unfortunately, most of the newspaper obits do not list a date of print nor the title of the newspaper. I will try to give location and dates that may be helpful as I can.

This Memory Monday Via Facebook!

Facebook is where you hook up with family and friends. Of course, for us genealogists we do some networking, the same as with Twitter, and hope to find a new relative or two. I can excitedly say I have done just that, met cousins I hadn't previously known, through Facebook. One such cousin in particular that I met on Facebook led me to another cousin which has been an amazing cousin connection for me. I have been collecting information and photos from this cousin almost weekly. I am thrilled that I am able to share with her a bit finally too, as all of the recent scanning I have been working on pertains to this same family. 


But, getting back to Facebook...about a week ago I received a message via Facebook from a past school mate. We shared most of our school years at the same schools. When I read the message he sent I had to laugh out loud. This person reminded me of something I had long forgotten! The header to the mail read ~


 "Captain Fleming" 


Then it reads~

"Lol...I don't know why this came to my mind but I started remembering being ________ _________ crossing guard and YOU were my captain. I can't really remember any of the other kids that "served" with us...maybe _________or __________? Anyway, I remembered you, mon capitan...probably because of the massive crush I had on you from 2nd grade on! :)"


This caught me so off guard, I laughed out loud. I happened to be in the car with my husband and of course he wondered what had made me laugh so. As I explained to him, I laughed some more. Soooo long ago....something I had totally forgotten about, me, a crossing guard? That was one thing, but the captain too? I hardly remember that! Do I have pictures of this? I highly doubt it. With this I learned something I didn't know about before, this person said he had a crush on me! Oh my...did he know I had a crush on him too? Can you imagine... we find this out, what, a zillion years later? Too funny! This has brought back many memories for me.

I highly doubt this particular person will ever read this but if he does, I want to tell him... "Thanks for the memories!" You brought back a memory I had all but forgotten and you have no idea how much this boosted my ego, even if it is a zillion years later. Ah, those were the "grammar school" days! I am glad we have been able to make contact once again and I am thrilled you are so blessed in your life today!

I wonder what else has slipped from my mind...have you remembered all of the stories from your grammar school days to add to your personal history?

Thanks for stopping by!

The Civil War… in Oklahoma? ~ Part 4

It is unknown which route was taken for the exodus. It could have been the route by Twin Mountains or the route along Black Beaver Road. Because Chisholm had a trading post at Council Grove and he returned there to Indian Territory at the end of the war with goods, probably via a trail which marked by the Black River Route, it has been assumed this was the route taken. Either way it is clear the confederates moved the "loyals" to the furthest west point of Indian Civilization. Pleading for reinforcements were going on at Beaver Creek after the Yahola exodus.

A spokesman for the "loyal" Creeks spoke at the end of the war with the US government explaining that they tried to keep their safety by moving west. Eight years after this a US agent to the Cherokees informed the commissioner of Indian Affairs "They tried to avoid a fight, to make their way peacefully to the Union army in Kansas by a far western route."

In the late 1930's elderly Creeks stated there was a group settled at the mouth of the Deep Fork. James Scott specifically stated there was an immobilization camp there and went on to explain how two camps merged and eventually several camps filled the main camp. Again and again there were statements made that meetings had been set up to make and keep peace, although these stories can't all be believed.

Stories have it that one of the camps had been moved above the "Big Pond" near the head of Big Fork. The "Big Pond" was more south, so it was sure the referenced was to "The Little Deep Fork" for there have been statements made that others had joined this group at the mobilization camp which was at a location called "Slick."

Yohola's camp was found but deserted. There was however a trail left which was in a north westward direction that led to new camp at a place by "Round Mountains" in Cherokee country. Now "Twin Mountains" could be a probable site for the battle. The land had been surveyed and followed the present day Payne-Pawnee County line.

When a full report was made of this, finding the abandoned camp and then locating the new camp, it was never revealed exactly where it all took place. From reading what was written at the time and following locations it seems the route was more north than northwest.

With all of this being on the Payne-Pawnee County line, I can see how stories could have developed from young people who lived in the area. I grew up thinking there was Cherokee blood carried in my father's line, which at this point is unproven. I am anxious to read where my relative comes into the story, whether it is important or not, and to again find out the story of the Cimarron that my father used to tell me. Of course, at the time I was told the story it didn't mean much to me. I have notes on it somewhere (which I will try to locate), but I plan to talk with Dad about this again also.

Funeral Friday #3 ~ Anton Kern Obit

Since I have scanned so many funeral cards and obituary's lately I have decided to post these items on Fridays, hence the title Funeral Friday. Some of these may not actually pertain to my family, however I wish to share what I have as they may be helpful to someone. Unfortunately, most of the newspaper obits do not list a date of print nor the title of the newspaper. I will try to give location and dates that may be helpful as I can.

I believe this may have been printed in the Wadena Pioneer Journal, exact date unknown.


Anton Kern

Funeral services were held at St. Hubert's church at Blue Grass Friday for Anton Kern, Sr., prominent farmer, saw-mill and threshing machine operator since 1880, who died Tuesday at his home. Rev. Van Rooey officiated. Six of his grandchildren were pall-bearers--Clement, Edward, Jerome, Ernest, Herman, and Martin Kern.

Mr. Kern is survived by his invalid wife and thirteen children, all of whom were present at the funeral except three daughters who are Notre Dame Sisters--Sr. M. Ermelinda (Tracy), Sr., M. Antona Martha and Sr, M. Herman Joseph (Lillie). Relatives coming for the service were S.M. Georgia of Moorhead, Mr. and Mrs. John Scheurer and Mrs. Anna Scheurer and Mrs. Clem Scheurer of Mankato; Mrs. Will Koenig of Long Prairie and Mrs. John Kern of Corpus Christie, Texas, and Rev. Joe Snysers, of Onamia, a former pastor.

He was born in Germany and came to America with his parents at the age of 9, living first at Oskosh, Wis., and later at Mankato. In 1879 he came to Wadena. In 1880 he married Catherine Scheurer of Mankato and they settled on the farm in Blue Grass now owned by his son, Simon.

He and his two brothers established a sawmill and retail lumber business in 1883 which was operated under the name Kern Bros. until 23 years ago when Anton Kern retired. He was also one of the first steam powered threshing machine operators in the country, which enterprise is now continued by his sons Adam, Frank and Simon.

He was a life-long members of the Catholic church and a member of the Holy Name Society.

Those Places Thursday ~ A Sanchez Home




Sanchez home. March 2007. Hayward, California. Digital Image taken by Cheryl. [ADDRESS FOR PRIVATE USE] California. 2010


This was a surprise picture I ran across that I forgot I had. The Sanchez home was one of the houses my maternal grandparents lived in. This picture was taken in 2007 but my grandparents lived here about forty three years prior to this. Even though it has only been about three years since I took this picture, when I came across it again it looked so unfamiliar. Of course it wasn't labeled properly (remember to label those pictures as soon as possible so you don't forget their dates and or places) and it took me awhile to figure out where this house was located. I knew it belonged to the correct family, but I did want to place it in the wrong city at first. Thank goodness for Google, I looked the house up on the street where I thought it belonged, and came up with almost the exact image, so I knew I was correct. 

I have one major memory of this location. One day my family was visiting my grandparents. I believe we were all inside the house at the time, when all of a sudden we heard a massive "boom." We all ran to the front of the  house and looked outside. The house across the street blew up! Well, I should probably rephrase that, the hot water heater blew up! This however made the windows of that house blow out. What I will never forget was the surprise I felt when I saw the glass from those windows had landed on my grandparents front porch! Glass was everywhere. My father even found glass in my grandparents backyard! From what I can remember, no one was injured luckily.

This house did not have an addition when my grandparents lived here, and I seem to remember the house was painted white at the time. One of the best things about it for a kid (which I was) was that this house is in a court, wow, we have room to play!

Santini for Tombstone Tuesday

Harry Santini's Headstone is in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Hayward. I came across this stone one day when I was visiting and looking for family headstones. The surname Santini is in my daughter's family history, so I took this photo. My daughter's great grandmother was Eva Santini born in California in 1894. Could Harry be Eva's brother? Maybe he was her cousin? Santini isn't a very common name so I tend to think there is a relationship there. I will be looking into this!

Those Places Thursday ~ Grandpa Fleming's Gas Station

The year was about 1939. The location: Odessa, Texas. This is the gas station my grandfather owned. I don't have much in the way of detail about how long he owned it or how he ended up in Texas at the stage of his life with two young children. I was just told he owned this station.


I love this picture, the close up showing the gas pumps. Aren't they great? Everything so small. The hoses next to the poles look like water and air hoses to me. Unfortunately, I couldn't zoom in on the pumps enough to see the price of gas but I did look at wiki.answers.com and found in 1930 a gallon of gas was 10 cents and by 1939 a gallon of gas was 10 cents. Now, why can't we have those kinds of prices and increases?

Tombstone Tuesday ~ Find A Grave

This Tombstone Tuesday I wanted to share something a little different than a tombstone picture. Recently I commented that I have belonged to Find A Grave for about a year now. This is a wonderful site to belong to. I belong as a contributer, and because I belong as a contributer there is something that has been bothering me.

The reason I joined Find A Grave was to CONTRIBUTE! For over a year now, I have not contributed. Guess it bothered me enough to bring it to the top of my priority list because I have now finally made some contributions!

I think what prompted me more than anything was that I met a cousin online who contributes regularly to Find A Grave. She gave me the encouragement to start. For some reason I was nervous about it, and I have yet to figure out why! Anyway, before I even made an actual contribution, this cousin turned over two of her entries to me to manage! She gave me my grandparents entries. I had no choice but to make some entries so I could learn how everything worked. If I were to manage my grandparents entries, I had better know what I was doing!

Of course the first few I entered took a bit of time to make sure I did everything correctly, but honestly, it was a piece of cake. I still have no idea why I was so gun shy to do this. I have now entered my first ten entries and all with pictures of the grave sites to boot. I was able to add photos of my grandparents grave sites as well.

Sure can't say enough about Find A Grave. Have you found information on a family member at this site? If you aren't a contributer please think about becoming one. If you are a contributer, please leave a comment and let me know. I would love to see who you are!

Contributing to Find A Grave is one way I figure I can give back.

A Mother's Day Poem



A Mother's Day Poem

Anonymous


Another Mother's Day is here,
Bringing joy and pleasures new,
On this special day, Mother dear,
I want to remember you

I cannot give you costly gifts,
And I've told you this before,
No matter what I give to you,
You give back much, much more

I'm giving you a pure, sweet rose,
Gathered in the early morn,
This rose you planted in my heart,
The day that I was born

In kindly, loving thoughts of you,
And with the faith you still impart,
The rose I give to you today,
Is the love that's in my heart


Wishing all mother's a beautiful Mother's Day!

SNGF with our Matrilineal Line



Saturday Night Genealogy Fun has been presented over at Randy's Genea-Musings. This week he asks us to:  

"1) List your matrilineal line - your mother, her mother, etc. back to the first identifiable mother. Note: this line is how your mitochondrial DNA was passed to you!

2) Tell us if you have had your mitochondrial DNA tested, and if so, which Haplogroup you are in.

3) Post your responses on your own blog post, in Comments to this blog post, or in a Note or status line on Facebook."

Here's mine:

a. Cheryl Palmer
b. Annette Neva Harding (1936-2001) Married Lundberg, Brelsford and Fleming
c. Madie Jessie Miner (1906-1993) Married Demoss, Hills, Harding, Sanchez
d. Gladys Amy Richmond (1885- 1944) Married Miner
e. Louise Jennie Hatch (1858-1930) Married Richmond
f. Nancy Amy Gilbert (1833-1900) Married Hatch


I have not had a mitochondrial DNA test done. There could be reason however for me to have one done in the future.

Thanks Randy for another week of fun!

Chit Chat

Time to settle in with your favorite beverage of choice and join me for a little Chit Chat...

About a month ago I shared with you that a new cousin and I found each other. Terry O'Connell of Finding Our Ancestors is my cousin. Terry informed me that there was someone else in the GeneaBlogging world who descends through the Richmond line. I had a feeling who it was, as I had thought about it before, that we must be related. At the time this person was on vacation and then had to play catch up upon returning. I waited awhile upon his return from vacation and then sent him a message. My other new cousin? Why Randy Seaver from Genea-Musings! It is an added bonus when you find out the new cousin is a GeneaBlogger too! We each descend from John Richmond (1594-1664) who is my nineth ggrandfather. Always fun finding new cousins! I would like to thank Terry for getting me up to speed on how Randy fit in the tree. I really need to spend more time on Genealogy Wise which is apparently where she found her connection with Randy.

                            ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have been busy scanning like a mad woman. I have finally gotten my hands in contact with a couple of boxes my grandmother Lundberg owned and have scanned close to 1000 items. Almost finished with one box, and don't believe there is to much to the second box, but I am working fast and furious to get through it all. I think having waited for more than a year to see this stuff is why I am now acting as if the stuff will be burned next week. My poor scanner and my back have been screaming at me, so I have slowed down a bit and not let every waking moment consume me with scanning. So much of the scanning has been "friend" related, and the newspaper clippings do not have dates or the title of the newspaper. I have been faithfully scanning along and finally now been scanning photos which are more fun. I am fortunate in that I have a cousin in Montana who I have been able to turn to for help naming people in these photos. She also has cousins to turn too when she is unsure or doesn't have a clue. Thank you cousin Betty for all of your help with these. There haven't been to many yet, but there will definitely be more coming! Maybe this is my hurry, making sure I get the pictures named while I have someone who can help?

                           ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I shared a nice chat with Anna-Karin Schander of Anna-Karins Genealogical Blog about the closing of the Swedish Immigrant Institution. Seems the archive collections will be moved somewhere but the library and research department will be gone. Very sad for Sweden. Through our chats we came to find we each had grandmothers who traveled or lived in Ångermanland. Anna-Karin assisted me with my Lundberg side of the family, again verifying my grandfather was illegitimate. However, I did learn new information on his mother, which I will share at another time. Enjoyed chatting with Anna-Karin and I wish to thank her for her help!

                           ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Have you read the April edition of Shades the Magazine? If you haven't, I suggest you do. Beautiful magazine! This issue covers the Civil War. Everyone involved, authors, editors and of course footnoteMaven of Shades of the Departed, did an outstanding job just as they have done with all other issues! I settled in with a bag of popcorn and started reading, and couldn't stop! Before I knew it, my popcorn had disappeared and I had read more than half the magazine. (This edition is over 100 pages) I felt like I was at the movies, the same sort of feeling of being on the edge of my seat, wanting more! Because WDYTYA's season has ended, it was a perfect time to finish the magazine. So much fun! Be sure to check it out!

Those Places Thursday ~ What Did We Do?

I ran across this photo when I was wondering what I would post for this weeks "Those Places Thursday."  This picture is in the first photo album I ever put together. Yes, I was a part of this mischievous mess! A girlfriend of mine had a slumber party directly across the street from this house for her birthday. I don't remember how many of us there were at this party. And, when was it you ask? Well, relating this picture with a few other photos involving the same people, I am thinking we were probably in middle school when this took place.

It is kind of funny as I really don't remember doing this, but I do remember we had to go the next day and clean it up! That was the deal my friend's parents made with us if we wanted to go TP'ing. We must have been been in early middle school years, most of the time when you went TP'ing, you went in the middle of the night and no one knew you left! That was half the fun, sneaking out!

This is the only picture I have of my TP'ing escapades, and it sure brings back memories! How about you, did you ever go TP'ing? Do you have a story to share?
