Hi Lynn, I have a question about Henry Rullkoetter. He is my grandfather. You have that he worked for the Harry Knollman Mfg Co. Where did you get that information? I could not find any information about this company. I know at one time he worked for the Mercantile Cigar Co which was F.R.Rice Mercantile Cigar Co. according to his WW1 draft card.
Thanks, Carolyn Scism

Thank you so much for the beautiful words you wrote about my Grandmother. She was very proud of her bowling and her accomplishments. It was nice to read about my Grandpa too, I wish I would have gotten to meet him. I miss her everyday. Thank you again for taking the time. Many blessings to you.

Hi Lynn,
You're so sweet! I am so glad to hear that this mystery is solved, but it's all to the credit of Aunt Sue (Find A Grave no. 18287703) and her prolific poem collection! I'll be glad to attach both sides of the clipping and send them to you if you like; my email is
Take care,

Oak Hill
I began transcribing this cemetery when I worked there and added records from the interment books and walked each garden w my camera. I created an Excel spreadsheet (sortable) with all the interments. I am now rewalking each garden with my spreadsheet and checking off each interment for accuracy. I am finding in each garden, I missed markers here and there. Living the capture and find myself apologizing outloud to the deceased! I know--I'm a lunatic!

I forgot to state how we're related.
Forrest is actually a 3rd Cousin Twice removed to my husband. Forrest & my husband's common ancestors are two brothers, Jean-Marie Pilere & Jean Bapriste Pilere. Thus all the Cousin thing.

Thanks! Kathy

Hi! Lynn

You did an excellant job using the chalk. I would have never thought of that. Since this a newborn infant with a very unusual marker. If you can. Would you pleas see if the epithaph under the dates can still be read & send us the transcription? My heart always aches for those young ones who never got to know their family. The work we are doing is making it possible for our grandkids to understand what our ancestors went through during their time here. My boys were amazed at the motality rate of the children in the 1600 & 1700s. It has made them realize how blessed their children are today. So!
If you can't we'll live but it never hurts to ask. Hope you have a safe & enjoyable week. Take care & God bless.

Thanks for the info, Lynn. Haven't heard from the other contributor, but when I do I will share your info with him. I noticed the wrong DOB too. Glad you noted on the memorial about no headstone. Apparently cemetery workers are getting real testy about duplicate requests for location info. I don't blame them. Until recently, I hadn't even thought about adding "no marker" to my memorials after someone has looked for one. I'll let you know what the other guy says.
Thanks again,

Please add a link to his oldest sons page:

I was wondering where the birthdate and place info came from? The wife's maiden name is listed as Alford on this page, Kelso on George's page and but the marriage license at Calhoun County list it as Snider?

Hi Lynn,

I hope you are well. I finally got a chance to double back on my info and look a little bit at Susan Miller Woolley and Mary Catharine Miller McDaniel's parents.

I found a marriage record for a Joseph Miller in Perry County dated 4 Oct 1849 to a Mary Jane Row. I am going to guess that this is our Joseph as it is the only one in the right date range. I've cross referenced it against the 1850 and 1860 census records showing Joseph Miller b. abt 1823 in Ohio and Mary J. Miller b. abt 1831 in Maryland.

With this info, I'm pretty sure that Mary J. Miller's maiden name was Row or Rowe.

I haven't gotten a chance to see if the Civil War soldier is our Joseph yet, but I'll be doing some research on that soon. I'll be in Ohio from May 16th to May 24th and I definitely plan on making my way up to New Straitsville for at least one day.

Betty Solooki
Bach Cemetery in Calhoun County, Illinois
My family recently spent the day in Calhoun County trying to track down the Bach Cemetery. No one we spoke to in Gilead (What is left of it) or Hardin had even heard of it. We did locate two old cemeteries which do not appear to have been documented which were on private property. Do you have any idea where the cemetery is or was located. My great uncle Benjamin Edward Fitzgearl and my Great aunt Anna Pearl Fitzgearl Bach are buried there and we would like to visit their graves if they still exist. Thank you for all you do.

Hi, You replied to me about looking on ancestry for the information I needed on Richard Tate. I am the one who has posted all the information to date about him. I am also the lady who left flowers on his memorial page.

Can you tell me where you found his parents names so I can verify them and please send me his Obit.
Also Please send me Mariah's Obit. Thank you so much.

If it helps you, my ancestry for the Forbes Family on my tree have all been verified if that information helps with the other questions about Louella Forbes
