Just a note: If you see Munich/München, Bavaria/Bayern, listed for any birth or death place in memorials added by me, this is most likely an error. The error occurred when Findagrave.com changed something behind the scenes (ca 2013-2014?) and changed all original entries listed as "Bavaria" into something like "Munich, Bavaria (Bayern)." I'm correcting the errors as I come across them. Let me know if you find one.
Jacob Giesen Debbie, Thank you so very much for the memorial of the subject and his wife Barbara Ringelstetter Giesen. I really enjoyed reading the history. Under separate cover I will send you and edit on his siblings. I am related to Katherina Giesen Moll. Dave
Carlene Ottow Debbie, I posted a photo of Carlene, but her husband wasn't inscribed on the backside of her tombstone (you made a note in your photo request that you thought he would be there, or nearby). I don't see another Ottow in the Southern Wisconsin Veterans cemetery listings on Find A Grave. What is his name? Perhaps we can find him on the national website or I can look at the kiosk next time I am at the cemetery. Loretta
