Boff virtual cemetery
Hi Ken, didn't see Boff on your list of family names, but see you have a virtual cemetery for the family. My relative is Mary Magdalena Schmitt, wife of John Boff. Mary's brother, Alvin William Schmitt, was my great-grandfather.
I'd be happy to take on the family; I believe John and Mary had 11 children. Just wanted to check first in case this is also your family. Please let me know, then I'll do edits for each member... or send a single email with names & memorial numbers, which ever you prefer.

Helen Collins
Hi Ken- I received the information about Helen Collins from another contributor, Jane Magnum. She does a lot of research on families here. You should contact her as she may have more information about the family, found with the info of the edit she submitted. She is very helpful and would, I'm sure, give you any help she can.

RE: Hattie Lewis
Haha! That would be a problem! No, my cousins show her born 1907 and her sister, Jessie, born 1905! My father had saved a pic of Hatty. But, all I've found is a 1920 census listing both girls with John and Nancy. I just can't find any documents on them! I can't truly prove they are John's girls!!
I can't even find marriages of them!
If you find anything let me know, please!
Thanks, and I am so sorry in the delay in relying!

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!

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
