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.

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.

Thank you again for transferring this fellow to me. He is my great-great-grandfather. I have found more information on him, including his Civil War service, and have been able to fill in more of his life and begin to connect him with other family. Bless you!

Thanks for the offer to transfer three memorials: 112235149, 112235560 and 112235702.

Thomas Hodkinson married a niece of my great-great-grandfather's, so I'm actually no relation of his family's at all. If you wish to transfer them, I'll be happy to take them, but with the caveat that if any actual relatives come looking I'll be just as happy to pass them along to them.

[Excuse the previous blank reply.]

Howard Norman
Looks like we are in similar ships! I also "inherited" a cemetery to maintain. However mine is much, much, much smaller than your undertaking! Got your request to update Howard Norman's parents in the Bakertown Baptist Cemetery. Have accepted the change. Just wanted to let you know I'm working with Find A Grave to remove the wrong photo (Carl Ingold) that is currently on Howard Norman's memorial and I will be adding a new correct photo. Several memorials, all in a row, where entered wrong in the original entries. Photos were all off by one grave. I think Howard Norman is my last. Just have to get Find A Grave to remove some that are on the wrong memorials.

RE: Edward & Katherine Schneider
It appears that you have solved the mystery and have saved me a lot of time searching in Milwaukee. I greatly appreciate your help! My last clue left was to check the Marriages in Milwaukee on the web site but ran out of time the other night. Thanks again, your time is surely appreciated.

RE: Oak Hill Cemetery, Watertown, WI - Memorial# 7068784
I appreciate your work but unfortunately, it is not correct. Fritz Schneider was Edwards father and Edwards sister was Amanda Schneider who may have married but I have not researched her for that. It is Mellita Schneider who I am interested in. I am certain that Edward's wife is Mellita, although she was always known as Katherine Schneider. My search is exclusively for Katherine/Mellita's maiden name. It is thought that she may have been Jewish. I would like to clear this up so I may either celebrate some rather interesting culture or just solve the question for good.
I will be coming out to the cemetery the last Friday of this month and hope I can make a connection there and find some answers. Perhaps you could help me there.

RE: Catherine Higgins
I don't believe you will get a picture for any that you requested. I checked my transcript and don't have a section in which they are buried.

I would assume she is buried there. I have added some in this cemetery from the obits i find. I did a transcription on this cemetery, about 2011 and have added that, plus adding more as I find them.
I think you should add her.

RE: Oak Hill, Watertown, WI
yes the second Christopher Schroeder married to Mary-Maria Ahrens is the right one...I have no idea who that other one is or if he evens fits into her family line. So cancel that other one edit.

Find A Grave Memorial# 94086680
Richard J "Dick" Mannion father was Lester T or J Mannion born abt 1902 in Connecticut. His mother was Elizabeth nee Mannion born abt 1871 in Connecticut. Elizabeth's father was from Ireland. I couldn't find Lester's father's name. When he was 8 (1910) he and his mother were living with his mother's brother or sister the Shannons. Elizabeth has that she is still married. In 1920 Lester is 18, single, and living in Washington, Litchfield, Connecticut. He is on his own boarding with Thomas & Ameala Mcgrath. I did not find Lester on the SS deathfile or any proof what happened to him.

RE: Cora Sage Oegerle
I am trying a 7-day membership to Oegerles are easy to find. There is only one family in the USA that I have found. Wonder if George changed his name when he came here? Or was he the only Oegerle in the world to come here? Can you go to my tree on I found Cora's wedding at the courthouse. I have to make sure I copy the clippings before my membership of 7 days! If I just save the clipping to a person, I won't be able to view it later, I have found. So I'm busy doing it right. Msrge

Located clipping that gives her death date and also marriage date! I put it on Findagrave. You may wish to put it down in 3rd place in order. I always like the person's picture first. Do you? Marge Thompson Lindsey

The headstone is in Mt Olivet but posted it in Oak Hill of Watertown because if someone is looking for the memorial might be easier to find.

I will make note that this headstone is in Mt Olivet so there is no confusion.

Amanda May 1863
Edward 1879 - son
Meta 1882 - daughter
Elsa 1883 - daughter
Christian 1892 - son

Thanks. It always seems like solving a puzzle, anso? Cindy Gengler

RE: Question
All of these folks are distant relatives of mine. Their parent and or grandparents were siblings of my great grandfather. I've been doing tons of work to organize and get as much info out on Find A Grave as I can.

I could take over management if you want to transfer them to me. I can still add more info.

Thanks for asking. I will send along a 'suggested edit' for them as I understand it's easier to do a transfer from there.
