Pohlmann Family Cemetery
There is a small cemetery in the woods at Little Creek Nature center. Little Creek is owned by the Ferguson Florissant School District. I work for Ferguson Florissant School District.

I see your name as a the creator of these memorials. You mention that "it is unknown if the headstones still exist" They DO! I saw them this past Saturday. I know there are at least 5 stones. they are not in great condition but they are there. I will be out there again soon and I will send you pictures.

Hello Lynn,

Thank you for the info. I hadn't realized that was the case since I haven't run into that situation in the past.

Thanks again for you response.

Paul Henry Vogler
Hi again,

Since it seems you have some pretty intimate knowledge of my family, I thought you may want to update my great-grandfather, Paul Henry Vogler. His elder son, Carl, my grandfather, passed away three years ago. You can link his Find a Grave to his father, like you did David.

Ernestina Heberer Vogler
Hello! I just noticed that you wrote lots of great information about one of my ancestors, Ernestina Heberer Vogler and I wondered if we might be related. Ernestina would be my great-great-grandmother. Her son, Paul Henry, was my great-grandfather. I'm curious to find more Voglers (my maiden name) in the St. Louis area, especially since my branch dies out with my sister and I. I have no brother. My dad has no brother, and neither did his dad.

All the best,
Rebecca Vogler Splain

RE: Thomas McKenna
Hi Lynn,

Thank you for responding so quickly. And thank you for the information.

Do you happen to know where I might be able to view the book on Salem Lutheran?

I'm researching Thomas and have come across another Thomas with similarities. I'm trying either to connect these 2 or prove they are not the same person.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

RE: More on Rose Aceto
I sent you a note on Henry J.'s account. I have a different birth date than you. Different first name for the husband. There was also a first husband. Lived in Iowa at some point. Different place of death than Florida. Louise died in 1967 not 1957 as I remember going to visit her and her husband, Ben, in Calhoun County. Her grandson and great grandchildren live close to where I live now. It is a small world. Please read my other message sent earlier today. Thanks.

August Pohlmann
Hi Lynn,

I'm a descendant of August Pohlmann. I was just wondering where your documentation came from concerning his parents and children. Would it be possible to get copies of any of it? Where might I write and or visit? My line comes through his daughter Mary Mathilda Pohlmann Wiegand. Thank you for your help.

Albert had another son Friedrich Wilhelm born 1834 who ended up in the same community in Missouri (I find him in the censuses, but he apparently was not buried at Salem Lutheran cemetery) I haven't figured out where he was buried yet. I have not found the Koch's yet in the census, so I'm not sure, but Albert also had a daughter from his first marriage baptized "Anna Maria" in 1826 in Spenge, and it's my hypothesis she is the person who married Koch, but I am far from being certain about it. I have more research to do on this family.

Herman Heinrich Benne was born Hermann Heinrich Grosse Benne on 4 January 1831 in Spenge, Herford, Westfalen. I have a copy of his birth record as documentation, and would be happy to send it to you. Also, born in the same town and immigrated to St. Louis, and buried in Salem Lutheran cemetery were his father, Albert Heinrich Grosse Benne, and his brother Johann Friederich Grosse Benne. I believe that "Spwanga" was what was indexed in the Salem Lutheran book of church records, but there is no such town. Apparently the family dropped "Grosse" prefix from their surname when they immigrated.

new harddrive, lost all contacts
Hi Lynn

My pc recently dealt me a fit and I lost so many things on it because I required a new hard drive....
and, of course, I lost your e-mail address.
Had some family tree data that had not been printed and that is gone along with so many things I cannot
get back. What an ordeal!!!!!
Hope you are doing ok and look forward to hearing from you.

Iola Stainbrook Bean
RE: Lucretia Dixon Smith
The spelling Lucresa came from Alice Stainbrook Potter who was Great Granddaughter of Lucresa Dixon Stainbrook. Alice Potter (daughter of Elmer Stainbrook) also gave the name of her father's sister as Alice Lucresa Stainbrook. We are talking about the 1800's when writing and spelling may not have been so recorded as now. I looked at the Tombstone and the picture comes from the Dixon family. You are right; it does say Lucretia so that's how it should be. Perhaps a note that it was also spelled Lucresa by part of the family would help in finding records in the future. Thank you for looking at the tombstone.

Paul Mills
Thanks: for your contribution

Thanks for placing the memorials of Clara Stike and Viola Stike on Find a grave. These were my ex-wife Aunts. I attended Viola's funeral but picked up family tree research 3 years ago, when my sons got their Genealogy Merit badge. I could not remember the grave yard. Thanks for help. Its greatly appreciated.

RE: Ida Hadley #53712249
Lynn: My grandmother was Stella D. Davis (Nee: Hadley). She was in her mid 60s when she wrote the book. The book covers a period from her birth in 1882 until the early 40s. She talks about both of her parents, her aunts and uncles, brothers, sisters and all of her children. The book was never published and only a single manuscript exists and I have it. It is indeed a treasure. I have been all over Calhoun County gathering all kinds of records, including cemetery records. I have a tin type of Hannah Eaton. Have a nice evening. Bob

RE: Elizabeth Brink Sherman
I am glad the added information from the obit helped you. Wtg on the connections of both of your grandfather's parents. Determination is the key.
I have hit brick walls and when we blow them up it's fantastic to move forward again.
Keep up the good work, Lynn..
You will probably hear from me again soon since we are both working the same areas.

RE: Ida Hadley #53712249
Lynn: Also, This last week or so I have updated more than 50 Find A Grave entries and somehow I just plain messed this one up. Thanks for keeping me straight. Bob

RE: Ida Hadley #53712249
Lynn: The information that you have pertaining to Ida Rose Hadley is correct. I don't know what happened there. My Grandmother, Ida's daughter, wrote a book about her family and in the section concerning William and Mary Stevens she says many things about the Steven's including that Ida was born before the war. That would mean that Ida was, in fact, born in Ohio. William Stevens did not turn into a wonderer until AFTER the Civil War and during that time actually took his family to Kansas and lived there for several years before leaving again. It was when they passed back through Missouri & Illinois that Ida met Albert L. Hadley. I also have a copy of Ida's Missouri Death Certificate. Maybe I put down Illinois because that is where she was finally placed to rest with her husband. Sorry, I totally missed on that one. I have since corrected my records. Thank You.

PS As you can see, I have filled in much about Ida's children. Grandmother's book talks about all of them.

RE: Elizabeth H.
Lynn, Elizabeth's obit that you created was just fine. The facts were there too. What I posted was in case you needed it for more research or files. Love to hear more about your breakthrough. I love researching my lines too.
