Bio and Links
I will gladly add any information that anyone wants added to a memorial that I have made. I will transfer to DIRECT relatives (parents and grandparents). I do need information before transfer is made though, your membership number, your name, etc., and how you are related.

For any memorial I have added I will make family connections. I can only connect to parents, not children. It is quite impressive to see how far the family line can go. I thoroughly enjoy my work with find a grave.

It is my hope the work we are doing, will benefit the next generations in their family tree search.

Thank You each and every one of you that have/will email me corrections.

You have requested a photo of the above-referenced grave. The stone has fallen. I do not post photos of fallen stone. If you contact me directly, I will email a photo of the stone.

Albert Buelow
Picture of Lucian Weiss and wife
My name is Albert Buelow and my Find a Grave member number is 47920719. I am quite sure that the picture that is up on the Find a Grave website of a Lucian Weiss, born 26 Nov 1824, died in 1879, and buried in Bremer County, is really a picture of a different Lucian Weiss and his wife. A similar picture, cropped differently, but of the same couple, is posted on the Find a Grave Website for a Friedrich Lucian "Lucian" Weiss, born 16 June 1831, died 25 May 1892, and buried in Webster County. The picture on the Find a Grave website that was created for the Lucian Weiss in Bremer County indicates that the Mr. Lucian Weiss was a delegate from St. Paul's church in Fort Dodge. The convention at which the man in the picture was a delegate was held in Fort Dodge in August of 1879. He was a treasurer for mission funds for area churches. I am the District Archivist for the Iowa District West of The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod, and can document the information I have given about the man in the picture. I have received questions about why that picture was put on the Find a Grave website for a Lucian Weiss from Bremer County who died in the year that the convention was held in 1879 in Fort Dodge. It seems clear that the picture was put on that website in error somehow. I would be willing to discuss this matter further if you want further information. Cordially, Albert Buelow
