I'm looking for the gravesite of an ancestor: Bridget (McGuire) SMITH. Her death certificate listed Marshall, MN as her place of burial.
She may be buried near a daughter, possibly named Maggie/Margaret or Bridget.
Any help you could provide would be much appreciated!
Iím working on a Family History Book on the family of my great grandparents Lars C. HALSETH and Oleanna CLIFFGARD. Lars and Oleanna were married in Lyon County. Tonight I have discovered that Lena A. Cliffgard homesteaded some land in Vallers Township. Could you provide me with a legal description of her homesteaded land?
Could you also provide me with the name of someone whom I might contact in the Lyon County Court House so that I could get a copy of their marriage license?
Do you know if there is a church that was located near her homestead? What is the name of the church and if it is still active, who would I contact.
I am willing to reimburse you for your services. Any help that you might be able to provide me will be greatly appreciated.

For the last 30 I have be trying to find a brother to my grandfather.
They were born in Clinton county Iowa, Frank Cooty in 1872 , Mary Cooty on 7 March 1873 and my grandfather, Albert Charles COOTY in September of 1876. Unfortunately their mother died in early 1877 and their father in may of 1878. The children were moved to live with aunts and uncle's. Frank disappeared in 1880 and we have been unable to find any trace of him until recently. We have found in the "Family Search" program a death notice for "Frank COOTY" on 7 September 1894 In Shelburne, Lyon, County, Minnesota. It shows him as born in 1872 , 22 years old, a white male, who worked as a welldigger, and his father a Nick Cooty. Oddly on the next page we find a notice for "Frank COOTY" on 15 September 1894, in Hope , Lincoln County , Minnesota. also shows him as born in 1872, 22 years old, a white male who worked as a welldigger. We hope you can help us find a burial place any other information that might be available regarding his death.
