RE: John Reisdorff
You're very welcome. I wish I could have found more.

RE: John Reisdorff
I can only find him on the 1870 and 1880 census records living in Kansas with his wife and children. There is a Johann Reisdorff who departed Antwerp, Belgium aboard the ship "David Hoadley" and arrived in New York City on April 17, 1856. His age is listed as either 23 or 28 (hard to read) and it appears he traveled by himself (there were no other Reisdorffs listed with him). He is possibly your relative.

Also, I found a record of a Johann Reisdorf born May 21, 1834 in Bergheim Erft, Rheinland, Prussia, with parents listed as Christian Reisdorf and Catharina Ramen. I can't verify if he is the same person as your relative, but it's worth checking.

RE: John Reisdorff
Someone probably sent me a correction at one time. I just checked and on the 1880 census John, his wife, and five children were living in Mound Valley, Labette, Kansas, and the census states that John was born in Luxembourg, as were his parents.

RE: John N Reisdorff
If you click on his obit it will show the date and the name of the paper. It also has his name as John N Reisdorff and that he was 87 years old, tthat makes his DOB about 1848. The Catholic Cemeterys of The Archedocese of Omaha has three John Reisdorff's at St. Mary

John N Reisdorff
Hi Patsy
I added a memorial for a John N Reisdorff (1838 ?-1925) with his obit. Would you like me to transfer it to you?

photo of Lucinda Bradburn Thompson

Lucinda is my gggrandmother. I have a scan of the same photo you have on this Find A Grave site and yours is much better than mine. Are you willing to send me a copy of your scan? I have a public tree on ancestry. myavalon75 Watkins Family Tree. I am wondering how you connect to the Thompson line.

RE: Weston Family
I am trying to tell the story of family through pictues, headstones and obits. Tom was married to Ida (Brown)Weston who was my grandfather Alfred L. Peterson Sr. (from Sweden) ,sister-in-law. He married Hattie Brown/ Peterson. If you see what obit.s I have completed you will find her and his name as family.We put what we can on the Find A Grave sites.

RE: My Grandmother was a Weston
Hello Patsy,
My family name is not Weston...sorry to say but that is the name of our minature schnauzer :-)

We got him from the town of Weston in Nebraska- that's how he got the name. Thank you for the offer of providing some family history though!

RE: Weston Family
I was looking for Ida Weston's husband's obit. (Tom Weston). I see you posted a family photo stating Weston 1911, people numbered 1-13, children A-J. Wonderful picture. Tom Weston was #12, no Ida. A wonderful addition to his site. You also stated you were looking for family named Donlin. We are related to Augusta Peterson Donlin & husband Frank buried in Rock Island Memorial Park Cemetery Rock Island, Illinois + other family.

Weston Family
I check our sites to make sure things are not missing. I was shocked to see the family pictures. I have looked for his obit to add and can not find one. I feel the site is not complete. Can you tell me something about the wonderful pictures you put on the site.
