I moved her to Oakland. Is there a reason why she wasn't buried next to her husband?

RE: Witts
Yes, Section 7
The Witt's in Section 15 have no grave markers at all - and this includes Charles C. Witt who died July 14, 1918 - you have him in Section 7

Charles C. Witt died of Cancer, his wife is Mary Witt (died-1922)

Mine is taken from a higher angle - Hans - I guess it's OK to have additional photo as long as nothing else needs to be posted.

RE: Louis's name
I don't think Henry was his nickname. Everything I found on him had Henry in parenthesis. So I put his full name down in the bio section.

Thank you again for your help. I'll enter his information today. I would love to have Mary transferred to me, thank you for offering. And I'd also love the tombstone photo. Thanks again!

RE: Mary Rebecca Amme Muller
Can I do that if I don't know for sure which tombstone is his? Can I just put his burial information according to his obituary?

RE: Mary Rebecca Amme Muller
Wow, you were quick to reply. Thank you!
I have no idea who Lollie Muller was and I wondered why she was buried next to Mary. Mary had 6 children who died young and 5 lived to adulthood!! But Lollie and with her birth date could not have been one of them as Mary would have been 70 when she gave birth. Perhaps she was a grandchild??
I noticed the Breitenbucher tombstone and Amme Breitenbucher was a pallbearer at Mary's funeral but I'm not quite clear on how they were related. Amme was Mary's maiden name. I'm not yet sure who Mary's sisters were and if one was Elizabeth.
Louis C. (Henry) Muller was born Carl Ludwig Heinrich Muller but I doubt his tombstone would be in that name. And in the Army he used the name Henry Miller. He was born 1848 and died November 14, 1892.
Thank you so much. I will call the Sexton and see what I can find out. You've been a great help.

Mary Rebecca Amme Muller
Mary Rebecca Muller, #140205189, is my great grandmother. She is buried at Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta; plot Sec 21, Block 299, Lot 2, grave 1. For some reason I cannot find her husband, Louis C. (Henry) Muller, 1848-1892. Louis died 30 years before Mary and I don't know that the family had a family plot where they could reserve a space for Mary. But I looked at all the Mullers buried there and didn't see his name or a date close to his death date. That is a HUGE cemetery and perhaps his tombstone has not yet been documented. Could you give me an idea how I could track him down and what the burial policy is for that cemetery? Would a family be able to reserve a section for their family members? Do you know how much of the cemetery has been covered?
Also, thank you very much for all you do. This is a great service for the families.

RE: George Kyle
Thank You for the reply..
I'm surprised to hear this, since I did find CW records on him and his Burial Marker application card
I will post that on his Memorial...then just maybe someone will find him eventually...

He was from Texas and Maybe his group has not been done yet ?

Thanks for all you do to preserve these Memorials on here...

I just placed a George Kyle a Cousin of mine, in this Cemetery, as this is where his headstone is supposed to be..per: Confederate CW records

Just maybe you know where it is???

Whats odd is the same lady: Mrs Ernest B Williams ordered the marker for George Kyle same as the other Cival War vet named Pvt C.H.Kyle in 1949

Any help appreciated

Thanks,Shar R.

RE: E. Holland in Oakland
Thank you. You are right. It makes sense that he would have been buried in the family plot. Thanks again for your help.

E. Holland in Oakland
I have been searching for the burial place for my 5th great grandfather for a while now. His name was Elisha L. Holland b. abt 1798 and died sometime bet 1860-1869. He was the father of Leonidas "Green" Holland who is buried there at Oakland and was also a caretaker of the cemetery at one point. Elisha lived with Green in 1860. Assuming that Elisha still lived with Green at the time of his death I would also assume that he would have been buried at Oakland. Do you think it possible that a man in his mid to late 60's would have been this E. Holland CSA? Also, can you tell me who applied for the tombstone?

RE: Coleman Clarke
Here is where I got the information that his son is a Jr., so I assumed he is a Sr.:

HONOLULU, HAWAII, PASSENGER AND CREW LISTS: Name: Coleman D. Clarke, Jr.; Age: 8; Gender: M; Birth Date: 20 Aug 1939; Birth Place: Atlanta, GA; ; Port of Departure: Honolula, Hawaii; Departure Date: 22 Jul 1948; Ship: President Cleveland; Arrival Port: Yokohama, Japan; Passport No: 17231; US Address: 2421 Halelga Pl., Honolulu, T. H.;
>HONOLULU, HAWAII, PASSENGER AND CREW LISTS: Name: Coleman D Clarke, Jr. ; Age: 6; Gender: Male; birth Year: abt 1939; Port of Departure: San Francisco, CA; Departure Date: 6 Oct 1945; Port of Arrival: Honolulu, Hawaii; Arrival Date: 11 Oct 1945;
>CALIFORNIA, PASSENGER AND CREW LISTS: Name: Coleman D Clarke, Jr.; Arrival Date: 10 Jul 1950; Age: 10; Birth Date: abt 1940; Birthplace: Georgia; Gender: Male; Ship Name: Presidenct Wilson; Port of Arrival: San Francisco; Port of Departure: Yokohama, Japan; Date of Departure: 28 Jun 1950; Addr: 1183 Clifton Rd. NE., Atlanta, GA;

The only place I found the son's middle name as David was in the 1940 census. But I found the following marriage record:

North Carolina, Marriage Index: Name: Coleman Daniel Clarke Jr., resides in Atlanta GA; Gender: Male; Birth: abt 1939; Age: 22; Race: White; Spouse: Elizabeth Ann Measamer, resides in Sanford, NC; Gender: Female; Age: 21; Race: White; Marriage Date: 2 Sept 1961; Marriage Location: West Sanford, Lee, NC; By whom married/Place of Marriage: Rev. J. R. Noffsinger, W. Sanford Twp; Witnesses: Glenda Hyman, Clifford Clarke, Billie Ann Milliams; Note that Clifford Clarke is his brother;

I also found the following:
Coleman Caniel Clarke in the U.S. School Yearbooks, 1880-2012:

Name: Coleman Caniel Clarke
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1939
School: Wake Forest University
School Location: Wake Forest, North Carolina, USA
Year: 1959
Yearbook Title: Wake Forest University Yearbook, 1959

If you look at this entry on, it has Japan by his name. I'm assuming this is his residence.

So Jr went to college at Wake Forest which would explain why he married in North Carolina.

I also found where Jr and his wife Elizabeth divorced in 1981 in Travis Co., TX.

I also found a Clifford H. Clarke in the yearbook at Wake Forest. It also shows Japan by his name.

Does this help?

RE: Schenck in Oakland
At the Oakland Cemetery Page when I enter the surname Schenck, all 4 of the Schenck infants with parentheses are included in the list of Schencks.

Even though there aren't any gravestones showing their names, I know their first names were not "Infant" thus the parentheses.

Since two Schenck family members' initials are E. E., I will try to list them with the full names of their fathers.

Thank you for the following note:

FYI - I believe that Duren was the name of her first husband (Jesse), not her maiden name.

Do you know what her maiden name was and the name of her Duren husband?

Fred B Eidson
I researched this individual to see if he is the correct person/child of Isaac V. Eidson and Ada Yound Moss Eidson. I just found his World War I Service Card 1917-1919 and it states he was born in Gainesville, Georgia. Then his World War I Draft Reg Card shows in up in Fulton, GA with his name Fred Bryan Eidson born in Gainesville, GA. So I did a new search for Hall county, Georgia and a 1900 Gainesville Ward 2, Hall, GA did show up. There is a Robert R Eidson age 31 (12/1868), wife Ella age 28 (5/1872), Clarence age 10, Claude age 6, Fred age 3, and Wade 5/12. So I continued searching for an earlier census record but I only found a Georgia Property Tax Digest (1883-1887) District Morgan #385,Hall, Georgia. On this lists, it also shows a Thomas D Eidson. Then I searched on find a grave and found both of these gentlemen buried together at Poplar Springs Baptist Church Cemetery in Hall, Georgia. Here is their info which I think is the correct father to Fred B Eidson. He is Robert R. Eidson born 12/29/1861-9/4/1905 Find A Grave#115827045. I think his brother is Thomas D Eidson (11/29/1859-2/6/1904). I think you need to change this connection to correct father to Fred Bryan Eidson to Robert R Eidson. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me for further discussion. Suellen B Dennis
