Mate Dowd vs Mate Lees in the Ohio Cemetery in Rio, WI
I added an explanatory paragraph on my memorial for Mate Dowd, but did not delete it as you suggested. Mate Lees is a separate individual, buried at a different location within the Ohio cemetery. There is a picture of her grave on the pictures of Wisconsin gravestones website you directed me to look at.
Thank you for prompting me to make my memorial clearer.

Loeser, Lorine
Yes, I did find a last name for her using some family information I had. She is a distant relative of my Loesers. See # 125466792
So you could delete yours if you wish.

I'll go ahead and add the memorial pages for his daughters. I'll double check the family Bible page for the birth info. Thanks for you note and for adding the connections (links).

RE: If you consider this
That's fine. Ask any time, I like to try to find out things like that... happy Fall!

RE: If you consider this
Thus far I have not found anything in our area of Kansas about these folks. I found an Amos Jenkins, but it was not the right one. I'll keep my eyes peeled, so to speak.

Uff Da! I missed the name on the large stone. I'll add that to the re-take list to get the rest of the date. Thanks for the good catch!

RE: Oak Hill Cemetery - Watertown, WI
Thanks for your message. When I pulled up the site, noticed that it was not updated. So going to his records, decided to update.
I don't any further information.

Bill Hart
Potential FAG Project

I am considering a major Find A Grave photo project for next summer and am looking for Find A Grave contributors living in Wisconsin. Might you live between Wausau and Menomonie?

Thanks, Bill Hart

RE: Struggling to Approve? Hormdid to Hornickel, etc.
yes if you could. Edwin was my great uncle. August and Johanna Hornickel were my great grandparents.

Thank you.

RE: Joseph Kipping - parents
Your are right--my error as Christian and Frances didn't marry until 5-15-1898--ONE of them SHOULD have spoken to me from the grave. Joseph is son of Christian and Mary. Cheers, Happy Day

RE: Halfway Creek Cemetery, Holmen, WI
You are more than welcome. There is a Stryk Regque (1914-1919) buried next to Thora and Pastor Reque as well. I don't see a memorial on here for him. I can certainly get a photo for that gravestone too if you wish. Just let me know.

RE: I had a day off....
You are welcome. It feels like discovering buried treasure. Anytime you need more information from anyone in this area, I'd be glad to help!

I had a day off....
Hopefully you'll have found my edit information by now... that was fun to find. I forgot to include that Mabel died of "toothache and la grippe". Lots of people died of "la grippe" in that time, I've found.

Champions in Sunset
I'm still digging, but am only finding obits or death notices, and marriage licenses for them. I would love to find a birth notice that connects them, but am still working on it. Unfortunately for you I'm finding all sorts of other interesting things from the old paper collections that take me on detours.... have a great day!

RE: Sunset Cemetery, Manhattan, Kansas
I wonder if they were her daughters, too. It's not a common enough name, but I haven't found a link. I was hoping they were buried in the same plot, but that doesn't always mean they're that closely related. I kind of like to connect children with parents, and hate to see little ones all "alone". I just got a RCGS membership and I can now search surnames free, so I'll look into that.

RE: Sunset Cemetery, Manhattan, Kansas
You are welcome. I did a visual check with the grave locator function associated with Sunset Cemetery, and found possible relatives a row or so over and to the northeast.

"Neville" cemetery name
Hi, I've visited this cemetery to see my 3rd great-grandparents' grave, Henry & Emilia Kypke. I believe it is more properly called "Newville" & to be even more specific "Old Newville Cemetery", Waterloo Township. Believe it is closely affiliated with the nearby St. John's Lutheran Church (but not on the grounds -- that's a different cemetery), and another one called simply "Newville", Lake Mills.

Henry & Emilia were born, raised & married in Germany (1850), then immigrated to America ca. 1853.

Henry August Kypke & Emilia had a son named Henry August who married Fanny Fern Clark 1st wife. They are my 2nd great-grandparents. He later married Maria Krakow. They and other Kypkes are buried in Rock Lake Cemetery, Lake Mills WI.

Thanks for everything you do!

Roger Tesch
Ester Frankenstein - death date
I looking at the gravestone it appears that the year of death is 1911 not 1931. Look over the gravestone and see if 1911 is the date.

RE: Question
Thank you for asking about the Anderson marker, possibly Elizabeth Baker Ducomb who m. 23 Apr. 1841 to Geoerge Anderson.She was age 57 at that time, and was dead prior to 8 Feb. 1862 when George m. Euphenia B. Sinclair.

I am not 100% positive this stone was for his 2nd wife, Elizabeth (he m. 3 times).
Yes, you may transfer the memorial of Richard L. Anderson to me. Thank you.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to locate the cemetery stone of George Anderson, apparently quite well known in that county. Thank you.

Thanks for the compliment. It's appreciated. You have accomplished a great deal here, and in a much shorter time period. I've placed as many family photos and stories on Findagrave as I could. I hope they survive because Findagrave is possibly the most permanent record available to me. I hope they survive.

Thanks for all of your help, you're a lifesaver to me...this gets too difficult with "Findagrave's" rules of which I don't agree with....sorry, just venting.

Marjorie Crane
site for Frank J Vogel
On Frank J Vogel's Find A Grave site, Beatrice S McGowan Duquaine is listed as his 2nd spouse. Her obituary, on her site, states that she married Francis Vogel 20 Oct 1984 in Oconto & he died 26 July 1985.
However, according to the Wisconsin death index, Frank J Vogel died 10 Feb 1985 in Manitowoc co. In that same index, there is a Francis Holmes Vogel who died in Oconto 7/26/1985.

This evidence would suggest that she should be removed from the Francis J Vogel site as his 2nd spouse.

I processed the updates. I like your theory about the birth date. It sounds entirely possible to me.

It reminds of the birth year on the marker for one of my great grandmothers. Her marker lists year of birth as 1859. I kept finding a bunch of different years of birth for her : 1856, 1857, 1858, and 1859. Finally I made a list of all the sources and the year of birth. This was the conclusion I came to: the older she got - the younger she got!

I never met her, but I think we would have gotten along just fine.
