Augusta Wehner Williams
Augusta Wehner Williams was the sister of William G. Wehner (1847-1928). I am WGW's biographer, and seek contact with the Wehner family historian.//I am writing the first book from the American point of view about 19th century rotunda panoramas. These were the biggest paintings in the world, 50 x 400=20,000 square feet, housed in their own rotundas which were 16-sided polygons. Chicago in 1893 had 6 panorama companies and 6 panorama rotundas. William Wehner of Chicago built his panorama studio in downtown Milwaukee. From 1885-88 he produced 2 units of BATTLE OF ATLANTA, 2 units of BATTLE OF MISSIONARY RIDGE & LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN, and 3 units of JERUSALEM ON THE DAY OF THE CRUCIFIXION. My great aunt, Mathilde Georgine Schley (1864-1941) was an artist-model in the Wehner studio. On September 18,2003 I found in the display case of Milwaukee County Historical Society the F.W.Heine diaries 1879-1921. These highly illustrated diaries are the only narrative of a panorama company,that of William Wehner. The diaries needed to be transcribed in German, translated to English, scanned to computer. Michael Kutzer,born Leipzig 1942 like Heine, is transcriber on the Heine diary project. The Bradley Foundation of Milwaukee provided a generous initial grant for the Heine Diaries to be transcribed to German. Also, some 300+ glass plate negatives by panorama artist Bernhard Schneider (1843-1907) were found in an old house in Cedarburg,Wisconsin,which document Wehner's panorama company.MUCH INFO TO SHARE.Gene Meier,1160 Bailey Road, Sycamore, Illinois 60178

I just noticed that a Camille M Ott was Bernard's wife's name also.

Camille Marie Ott who I went to high school with was born 9 Aug 1946 and died on July 19, 1963. She is also buried at the same site.

Camille was Bernard C Ott's minor daughter, and not his wife.

I went to high school with Camille.

Sarah Emily Coy Clark in Oak Hill Cemetery
Hi Del,
I notice you created this memorial, and I'm trying to find proof that this is the Sarah Coy I'm seeking. Her marker doesn't have the name Coy, and I'm wondering if you would share how you came by her maiden name.
Thanks for any help.

RE: Clarence & Rosella Harrison
I sure don't mind transferring them to you, the only reason I even took the photos is because I was on a Harrison hunt. I figured snapping a photo of every Harrison stone I saw then I could later try and figure out if and how they were related to my Harrison line. I have been searching for the burial location of my GG Grandmother Lovisa Harrison O'Brien since 1994 and was hoping this visit to Osage County would find her, but no luck. I did however get to see where one of her brothers is buried in St. Aubert. Maybe someday I can locate an old newspaper article about her death :)

Clarence & Rosella Harrison
I had the pleasure of visiting the Chamois Missouri area cemeteries recently and took a few photos of the surnames in my family lines. I took the grave stone photo of Clarence & Rosella Harrison and then went to Find A Grave and did not find them in the St Marys cemetery so I created them a memorial along with their daughter Nadine who is buried near them. Later I was looking at cems and found your listing for them in the Stoner cemetery, I just wanted to let you know they are not buried in Stoner. I also visited Stoner while there and the Harrisons are in the St Marys cemetery. I see you have made family links on your memorials for them and am wondering if you are related?, if so I would be glad to transfer the memorials I created to your care. Please let me know.

RE: Townsend/Orzo Falls Cemetery
I appreciate the quick response. If you wouldn't mind adding a note to the memorials that they are unmarked graves, I would be most grateful. Thanks again for your time and the information.
