Formerly from northern MN, and lately from SW MO, hubby and I now are enjoying the much warmer climate of Mesa, AZ. I'm having a great time as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and also love playing with my family history ~ helping others with theirs when I can. :) Unless they are my relatives, I am happy to transfer management of your relatives' memorial pages.
There is a stone for Norman A. Cramer in Greenwood Cemetery (153047008)in Minong WI you have a cremation memorial for him (147640259). I would be happy to transfer the one in the cemetery if you this is family for you but probably there doesn't need to be two.
RE: Grace Foster Schnoor That's OK--we all mix up names now and again! Just had my family reunion the other day and had to re-state things a couple of times because, with a dozen people all asking questions at the same time, I garbled some answers. lol Have a great day! Marcia
RE: Grace Foster Schnoor Deb, I am not sure that your 2nd great-grand-uncle is truly related to this family. I'd be interested in your sources.
In the family info that has come down to us, Emma Lavinia Sreeves was married twice, first to a John T. Foster and second to Leander A. Hesse. Her oldest 2 daughters came from her first marriage. Those children were Grace May Foster (who married Frank Schnoor) and Doris Foster (who married Ernest Benning).
Certainly, as you stated in your previous message, GRACE was NOT married to any John Foster. Her one and only husband was Frank Schnoor. My grandfather (Grace's youngest uncle) was present at their wedding and remained their closest friend throughout their lives.
RE: Grace Foster Schnoor We have NO information on John T. Foster. Could you please share with us? I know that Emma's great-grandchildren and the other family members would be ecstatic! My email address is email@example.com
RE: Grace Foster Schnoor HI, Deb! Now I'm curious! You mentioned "Aunt Emma (Sreeves) Hesse". Grace is her oldest child; both Grace and her younger sister Doris were born to the marriage between Emma Sreeves and John T. Foster, which occurred about 1893, I believe either in Michigan or in Omaha, NE. (The Sreeves family moved from MI to NE about this time.)
Grace May Foster was born in Omaha in 1894; Doris was born in Scott Count in 1896. The story is that at that time their father ran off to Alaska; I don't know if this is true. Emma and the girls were with her parents and her youngest siblings in Wooster, Ohio in 1900, but then she seems to have gone back to Scott Co., where she married Leander Augustus Hesse on 18 November, 1907.
By the 1910 census Grace was working for a neighboring family in the Allen Grove area. She married Frank Schnoor on 16 April, 1916.
So...how are you related to Aunt Emma? She was my step-great-aunt. Her youngest brother, Earl, married my grandmother in 1933.
Shackelford's of Wright County Can you please transfer all of the Shackelford names you manage from Wright County. I am trying to get all of them linked so the siblings and parents will group on their memorials.
I am a direct decendant of George Washington "Wash" Shackelford.
Mary Johnson/Johnston Thanks for the heads up about the duplicate. I have notified the person who entered the other memorial and asked her to include my information on her entry as her information was much accurate and complete. Once that is accomplished, then I will delete my entry. I appreciate your notice. Twila
