Also note, this is a recap of the German Liberal Cemetery, Medina, but contains more bio information on some of the surnames. The way the WHCPA formerly kept their records was rather antiquated. It is my understanding that t hey are getting things where they can be found. My family's files were just a bunch of loose and unassociated notes. Avery tried to put it together, but I understand the records extend to 1,400 families. The Stubbs family have a number of publications at the Minn. Historical Society on early settlers.

ORONO, 1889-1989. First and Early Settlers of Hennepin County, and Old Rail Fence Corners should be obtained by anyone really researching back there, or at least perused. Also, Bergman Richards publication of the Minnetonka area. He had access to some of my family correspondence in poss. of Bessie Olive Wiley. She donated it to WHPA which she was a member. She borrowed the material back, and died. William Logan Hursh, attorney, was her administrator and kept the material. Bergman probably got the stuff from him. All WHCPA had was a note saying someone, on some day, had spoken with him and he would not return the documents. All above should be used for reference since we have found some of the material a bit far off.

Bessie was the daugh. of James Wakefield Wiley and my gr. aunt, Luica Eloise (Louise) Barnes. Her brother, Wayne, was a super of Tillamook Schools, and his daugh. Lucia was No 8. Muralist in the US.
