#25846333 Joseph P. Hartmiller

Joseph Hartmiller was the son of Germany immigrants. His father, Mathew Hartmiller was born in Dirmstein, Pfalz, Bavaria. Matthew Hartmiller traveled with his family through France to board a ship to America. Joseph’s mother, Margaret Floersch was born in Worms, Rheinhessen, Hessen, Germany.

Joseph P. Hartmiller was born on June 12 ,1859 in Cleveland, Ohio and moved Montana in 1882 at age twenty-three. He worked in the Bald Butte mine in Marysville and did some placer mining on Poor Man Creek in the Lincoln district.

In 1898 he discovered a vein of silver and lead. He named the mine, the Mike Horse Mine. It is 3 miles up Beartrap Creek from the Blackfoot river. The mine was originally claimed from public land in 1890 by Joseph Hartmiller. Joseph organized the Mike Horse Mining company shortly after the discovery. By 1901 the mine adit was 1,100 ft. long. The mine was sold many times, but developers soon went broke and Joseph would foreclose and get it back.

He was married to Nellie Ellen Robinson on June 8, 1909. Nellie was born on March 20, 1886 in Lincoln, MT. Nellie's parents emigrated to America in 1870 from Stockport, England. Her parents were William Robinson and Elizabeth Davis.

Joseph and Nellie lived in Marysville. They had four daughters. Mary Josephine Hartmiller born July 16 1923 in Helena, MT. Anna Mae Hartmiller born March 30, 1920 Catherine Helen Hartmiller, who was born Sept 26, 1917. Lillie Licebeth Hartmiller, she was born July 7 1912.

Joseph P Hartmiller died of Pneumonia on January 4, 1948 in Marysville, MT. Nellie passed away the year before, March 3, 1947 in Helena.

I would like to add a bio to Joseph's Memorial and link family members.I don't know if you would rather transfer it to me or if you wouldn't mind doing it. I would be greatly appreciative either way. Thank you.

Transfer of Ella Grindley
Hello again Becky -

Thank you for all of your wonderful work regarding so many relatives of others including my family's relatives. We went to see Ella today in Jefferson City - we found her because of YOU!

I would like to request transfer of her grave to my management. #30403758 When Ella died, James married Ella's sister, Anna, who is my husband's great grandmother and he is my husband's great grandfather. In fact, Nellie is the daughter of Anne, not Ella, and Anne's first husband, Harry Whiting, in Detroit. We have the bible given to Ella by her mother, whom we also found today, thanks to you.

I very much appreciate your consideration. Thank you.

26966259 Massena Bullard
I'm not convinced that this is the correct Massena Bullard. Our Massena Bullard was born 20 June 1866 in New York, and died 24 Dec 1895 in Fairmont, Martin County, Minnesota. His parents, David Curtis Bullard and Mary Anne Tubbs Bullard. And he is buried in Fairmont, MN at the Lakeside Cemetery. Is there any way we can get more information from the Montana death certificate?

Hello Becky, Ia a retired Marine (64-86) and Vietnam veteran I wanted to thank you for your service to our fallen and neglected loved ones. The work you do is important to researchers and for peace of the soul. AS I was researching my extended family I came across some of your memorials in Sunset Memorial Gardens and Crematory in Helena. Thank you again. Regards, John

Thank you!
Appreciate your transfer of my friend's family so I can connect him to the rest of the Italian immigrant story! This little one died of whooping cough according to the death record I found. At least I can put him with him parents now who came back to NE PA in the coal regions where they have other Italian family.

RE: Mildred Alberta Hersey Hinman #26125433

I have an item for you to please consider.

The item seems to be a little involved, but I will try to explain as clearly as I can. There are no records that indicate that Albert Hersey and Eula Thompson ever had a biological child named Mildred Alberta Hersey Hinman (#26125433). She may have been an adopted child, but not biological, as Albert was born in 1907, which would have made him only 6 years old when Mildred was born and Eula was born in 1912 which would have made her only 11 years old when Mildred was born. It is rather unlikely that these listed parents were Mildred's biological parents. Albert and Eula did have at least three children who at this time are listed only as "Private", as they are still alive and I have no ancestral records for them.

Please note: I have sent a request to Union48 to have Albert Sanford "Bud" Hersey #14351640 name correction: From all of my ancestral records and official documents, Albert's middle name is SAMUEL and he was named after his father and was a JR. He is listed in the 1944 Resident year for Helena, Montana, City Directory, 1944 as: Albert S Hersey Jr, living at 1014 9th Av, Occupation: Stone Cutter working for the Kain Granite Co (U.S. City Directories, 1822-1995).

I appreciate all of your considerations on this issue and hope that you can make the appropriate changes and "Note" on your memorials for any these people that you may have memorials for.

Thank you so much for your help in helping me get correct information for some of my ancestors.

Most Sincerely,

Please link these two records
Please link Lorraine Gabrielle Landreville Gooselaw (wife) with Lawrence Charles Gooselaw (husband)

There should be a hyperlink for Lawrence's name in Lorraine's record and vice versa.

Thank you.

I was told that 16383730 is a duplicate memorial but it won't let me delete it because it keeps saying I'm not the one who created it. I am the one who created one for him but I tried the link to find a grave and it isn't taking me anywhere. What should I do?
