John F. Weigel #118237753
Would you please attach George W. Weigel, #51434961, as John's father? He was attached to my memorial #73391679, which I deleted a few minutes ago. I know I checked for George before making the memorial and he didn't show up, so I apologize for the duplicate mistake. Thanks again and have a good week.

George W. Weigel
The Jeremiah Weigel family arrived on the "Alliance" in New York from Havre, France on 18 July 1838. NARS microfilm, reel 37, item 405

The Germany records show a Johann George Wiegel born to Johannes Jeremias and Marie Margareth Gehrmann Wiegel on 5 May 1822 (but that could be his christening date)at Mannheim, Pflaz, Bayern.

The 1850 Census is at Adams twp., Washington Co., Ohio but the spelling looks like Wetbl.
1860 Census is at Adams twp., Washington Co., Ohio, the last name looks like Weagle. and the 1870 Census, Des Moines twp., Jasper Co., Iowa, looks like Wigle.

George Weigel is my 3rd great grandfather on my mother's side.

Westlawn-Hillcrest Vets
We are currently working to identify anyone buried in Westlawn-Hillcrest Cemetery Omaha NE that has served in the military. If you have a loved one buried there or know of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day. This project is sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge #326.

If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.

Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.

Forget Me Not
RE: George Ratliff, Jr.
Did I ever answer your question about how to contact the Ratliff family? I don't have any personal contact info, but I have been contacted by a Ratliff family member via Findagrave. His name is Bill Foster. Maybe you can try to contact him.
