St. Joseph
Thanks for updating the memorials I sent through to you. I am finished now. As my Great-Aunt taught me when she was 86 years old, if you don't have proof of it, then you can't use it! If there wasn't a stone on a plot, I wanted to upload the death record for the oldest burials because there weren't death certificates to list ages and places of burial. So... thanks for your help in documenting the oldest unmarked burials at St. Joseph! Happy Hunting until our paths cross again, Pamela

RE: FREYER , Forest Cem, Toledo
I am emailing you some photographs of the Freyer headstone I took this morning. It says Karl was "gebruden" in St. Charles, Mo. sjm

RE: FREYER memorial, Forest Cem, Toledo
So, you lived in the Great State of Missouri. My Grandfather lived/died in St. Louis. Welcome back to NW Ohio! I will still rephoto Karl Freyer's headstone to confirm that it says he died in St. Charles, that way, we will both know for certain what the headstone says. Sjm

RE: FREYER memorial, Forest Cem, Toledo
Hi, Ken. Sorry about the bad photograph--I have the original photograph and tried to re-edit it for legibility, but I, also, cannot read it. I believe Karl Freyer is not buried in Forest Cemetery, but died in St. Charles, MO. Hermina (Minna/Mina is his wife, the headstone says "Gattin" which means wife in German. Theresa is "Tochter" which in German means daughter. The best I can do for you is rephotograph the headstone. I honestly cannot tell what the 2nd line reads. It appears to begin with the letter "G", but this could be either Geb or Gest in German--one meaning born the other meaning died. I may get back to the cemetery this weekend, I will email you the photos and, hopefully your German is better than mine!

Hi Ken: I am Nancy's first cousin. I wonder if you would be willing to transfer management of your memorial to and then I will remove mine. If yes, my contributor i.d. # is 47454452

Ken, can you help me get in touch with the granddaughter of John's daughter? She left flowers. She probably has info I need on her grandmother and her great Aunt Jessie that I need! John's son Irwin is my grandfather.
Please ask her to email me at

Thanks, Mary Lewis

Thank you for the transfer - that was very kind of you. I am sorry, I am not close to the cemetery. If you are on Ancestry dot com, they have PA death certs from 1906-1963, FWIW.
