German history
Your edits have been accepted.
My Ancestors are German.
If you ever find information concerning German troops hired by the Brits during the war of 1812 let me know. Of interest is if some of the German soldiers stayed in the States and/or if any fathered children while here.

RE: Struck
Hi Donna,
I apologize, normally I send an email explaining that there is no headstone and asking if the requester would like a photo of the grave site. However I arrived to find no headstone, and myself heading out of town for a few weeks so I snapped a photo and posted it with a caption stating there is no headstone, the name of the reference stone in the left of the photo and GPS coordinates. Next time I will take more care to get my requests done in a more timely manner. Would you like the photo to stay or would you like me to remove it?
-Heidi

RE: Struck
Change of subject. I am interested in your statement "I am fortunate to have the German church records in my home. Hundreds of people here (Sauk Ct, Wisconsin)"

I believe my Schrock family (Carl and Augusta) may have come through that area before settling in Winona, MN. Their eldest daughter, Bertha, married a John Godfrey Loeffler in Baraboo, Sauk Co. Oct. 31 1883.

RE: Struck
I find a lot of mistakes in the old obits so I'm not surprised.

Here's the obit for Herman Struck #123571010

Morning Olympian (Olympia, WA)
Tuesday, December 17, 1940, page 1

Herman Struck, 79, died at his home, 701 Fifteenth Avenue east, Monday. He lived alone, and when his neighbors did not see him during the day they made an investigation and found the body in the home.

Mr. Struck was born in Hanover, Germany, and had resided here since 1882. He was a gardener.

Surviving is one son, Herman W., of Olympia; three daughters, Mrs. Freda Halliday and Mrs. Louise Durham, of Seattle, and Mrs. Anna Diamond, of Tumwater. There are three grandchildren and two great grandchildren. A brother, William M., lives here. The body is at the Mills & Mills parlors.

Hi Donna,

I accepted the edits you sent for William Struck #38559268 and also found an obit for him. The info is a little different in the obit from what you sent. I know obits can be wrong, but I thought you might want to take a look in case it provides some new info for you.

The pink is a soft, inert chalk. We usually use white but made an unexpected stop at this cemetery and did not have white with us. It is washed off after the picture is taken. Per Find a Grave rules, I removed the picture from the site since you were apparently not happy with it there. We work hard to preserve the information of the stones without damaging them. We use chalk only to make the stones more readable.

Helen Kuchar # 59744727
You sent me an edit to link Helen to a Joseph Kuchar #114865037, her husband you're saying, that I approved. However, after giving it a second look, I found this Joseph was married to a Marie and that they were married in 1942 and when she died in 2005, he survived her. Marie and Joseph share a headstone. I removed the link. Am I missing something?

RE: Dexter Holton
Donna - that was a big help. I am transcribing Wisconsin Deaths & Burials records - Walworth County, Wisconsin onto Find A Grave. When there is a piece of information not listed on a memorial, I forward it on, just in case family members don't have that tidbit of information. I don't have any personal knowledge of this person, only what the death record states and it listed the cemetery he was buried in which is this one. I have no further information on his wife except for her name which was on his death record.

Donna,

I need the content of my e-mail in order to figure out information on this person. I find no "edit" pending on him in my edits file so I can't review what it was that I sent.

RE: Site
Here's the main portal for Arizona Death Certificates up to 1963. After entering the name and dates, I suggest you take the automatic check mark out of the birth certificates box or you will get way more listings than you'll be interested in. Hope it helps in your searches.

RE: William Schuette
I'm sorry but I don't have any primary information regarding the marriage of William Schutte and Anna Jackson but I can direct you to his death certificate that does show his wife's name as Anna. The information regarding his marriage must have come from another contributor whose contact information I no longer have. William's death certificate can be found here:

Permission for Photo Use
Donna,
May I download your photo of Quentin Ziemke that you added to Find A Grave Memorial# 53864324? I would like your permission to use it in my genealogy software on my computer, not on any online tree. Full credit would be given to you. He is the father of my cousin's husband.

Donna,

You're welcome! I just happened to see it when I was searching for another person. By the way, did you ever receive the e-mail that I sent to you in May? I'm just curious because I never heard back from you. Also, I need to send another e-mail to you and I want to be sure that I send it to the correct address.

Sincerely,
Fawn
