RE: Thanks
Saint John's in Wolsey - I haven't come across a list, but that doesn't mean there isn't one.

According to church and cemetery records, August C., August G., Ida and Fred Inselman are all buried in Zion Lutheran in Leeds. The only other Inselman buried in Leeds is Henry/Harry Inselman, b. 1910, d. 1974, in Leeds Center ( I don't find any other Inselmans in the area, and I don't find a burial record for Henry Christoph (is this August C. listed in the cemetery records?) Obituary records list August's death as May 6, 1948 and Henry C.'s as May 6, 1949.

RE: Meyer
Hi Donna,
Thanks for your note. I've gotten a little sidetracked since working on the Meyers earlier this year---plan to get back to them asap and will make some notes of things I'd like to ask. In the mean time please feel free to e-mail me if you have any suggestions/questions or if you'd like higher quality pictures of any that you see on a memorial, let me know.

Meyer photos
I'm so glad I can share the Meyer and Brandt pictures with others. They originally belonged to my husband's grandparents (Simon & Emelia (Meyer) Brandt) and survived a fire in the early 1920's. I'd like to contact you sometime in the near future with some Meyer questions as I see you've done a lot of research on this family and others.

RE: Niestadt
I'm not a relative. I like to help people find their family. The records I use are the WPA records from the SD State Historical Society online (pre 1940's). Have a nice evening.

RE: Niestadt
Found some more for you. Checked the SD WPA records and came up with Neistadt. The e and I switched around. Went to the cemetery and the headstones spelled it Neisteadt. Hope this helps!

RE: Grace Buelow
Grace’s obituary does pose some mysteries, mostly regarding her age.

Sarah Sanders dies May 14 1886 - (I would love to get my nose right up against that stone to double/triple check)

Grace is born November 1884 and is therefore 1 ˝ at the time of her mothers death, not 2 ˝ as the obituary says. She is adopted by Louise Ihde and appears with her in the 1900 census (listed as Grace Buelow, boarder) along with some of Louise’s other children, Emma and Louise. In the 1900 census her birth date is given as Sept. 1885!

I have not seen a birth date for Belle, your records indicate 1884 which doesn’t quite fit although I suppose it is possible. If Grace is adopted out then Belle must have been too but I can’t find her in 1900 under the name Buelow.

The obituary lists sisters(I added first names) Mrs Schweke (Bertha), Mrs. Rusch (Emma), and Mrs. Meyer (Louise) – these are the biological daughters of her adoptive mother as well as Emil Ihde who I assume is a biological son.

The next section I think just suffers from crazy punctuation as I believe “her stepmother; Mrs. Emil Gust” are two different people. If it were one person there might be a comma between stepmother and Mrs., although I don't know why they wouldn't name her. I have not seen the actual obituary but a transcription of it in a book of Buelow ancestry.

I wonder if there is an obituary for Belle that could shed some light – I will keep looking.

Thanks for helping to solve this!

Nora V. Best Edit
You sent me an edit asking me to link Nora to her parents who you say are, Herbert & Mabel Meyer. Several things, however:

1) I found a 1930 US census which shows her as a boarder of Herbert & Mabel Meyer. See below a portion of the info:

Herbert R Meyer Head M 26 Wisconsin
Mabel S Meyer Wife F 30 Iowa
Benjamin R Meyer Brother M 14 Wisconsin
Nora Connor Lodger F 13 North Dakota

2) The obit on her memorial page says also: "She was preceded in death by her husband, George Best, in 1960; and by Herbert and Mabel Meyer." It does not refer to them as her parents?

3) Her last name in the 1930 census and in the obit, in parenthesis, indicates her last name was Connor/Conner.

RE: Bunter-Meyer
It would be difficult to add your information to the memorial I manage given you have not told me what that information that is. I am happy to add any and all verifiable information, just let me know.

RE: #85425965
The partial wall of niches is called the Columbarium of Rest. Most of the niches have more than one urn of ashes. For instance, there are 148 cremated remains in just 55 niches in the Col. of Rest.

That wall is located in the Sanctuary of Rest. The sanctuaries consists of columns of crypts. Arthur's parents are interred in the crypts. You can see one column of six crypts in the photo on Arthur's memorial. This sanctuary has 10 columns of six on three walls. There are a few shared crypts but most are one burial per crypt. There are 68 people buried in the Sanct. of Rest.

The three walls are shown on memorial 126714761 which happens to be a shared crypt. Arthur's parents are in single crypts.

Hope this helps

Herbert Clarence Baumgarten
Hi, I rented a house in Seattle in the late 70's and I have a very personal picture/letters book from the home. First names are Helen Elizabeth Hinckley and Herbert Clarence Baumgarten. I would love to pass it on to the family. Did this Herbert live in Seattle ?

Green Wood Cemetery
The snow has melted so I'm back in the cemeteries trying to catch up on photos.

RE: Freddie Fish
Hi Donna, I was at Green Wood cemetery the other day and found Elbert Fish's grave for a request on Find a Grave. I tried to photograph it, but his name is on the west side of the stone and very worn. I then took photos of the other sides which included Ellen, Freddie and George on the south side and another side that I couldn't read. The only one that turned out clear enough to put on Find a Grave was the side with Freddie and George so I put photos on their memorials. Freddie has his date listed and age as 10. There is also a separate stone next to the family stone for Freddie so I posted a photo of that too. Both have 1886 as the year of death and 10 years as his age. I didn't have my paper to do a crayon rubbing to get the words from the east, north and west sides of the stone so I plan to stop some time when the snow melts and do that before I post photos for the request.
