Bio and Links
Bio Photo My quest to learn more about my ancestors began as a teenager. My great-grandmother had a book about her Drinkard family, which was written by her first cousin. It was so interesting I was inspired to learn more about my other ancestors. Some lines I knew very little about. The journey has gone on over 40 years and I am still at it.

Along the way, I also come across records for people not related. I enjoy sharing my family and other records at Find A Grave. It is such a great website!

This photo was taken when I went to an Adams Family Reunion in 2005. Our ancestors, Henry Adams and Margaretha Misslich, immigrated from Germany in 1848 and settled in Waukesha County, Wisconsin. Henry was born in 1818 at Enzen, Zuelpich, Rhineland, Germany.

Please use the 'Edit' tab for additions, corrections and transfer requests. Thank you.

The main lines I am researching are Gove, Hengell, Stowell, Drinkard, Kaus, Jostes, Collins and Vilmur.

RE: Margaret Wilson
You are very welcome, Gloria! She was listed as Margaret McReynolds in the Mills County Cemetery Book (1983), and I did not realize I had captured your request as I went through the rows. But I'm so happy I did!

Hi, I processed your link to Ruth's parents and then had to delete it. The people you linked her to were born around the same time she was...

Sorry.

I did a reply to your email and it still came back to me as undeliverable.

Hi Gloria,

The 8th child was baptized at St. Cecilia’s church in Hastings.

The record reads:

13 April 1883 baptised Mariam Elisabetham natam 8 April 1883 filia legitima Francisi Carrier & Emiliae Vilmur.

Sponsors Elias Vilmur & Josephine LaBrie

I do not know when she died.

Catherine

Hello Gloria

I sent you the following email which was returned to me as undeliverable.
We corresponded in the past when I was director of the Adams County (Nebraska) Historical Society. I am now retired, but volunteer for the society.

I am searching for information on Emelia Vilmur and Francis Carrier. They are buried in Parkview Cemetery in Hastings, Nebraska. Five of their children are buried in unmarked graves in Highland Cemetery in Hastings. I am not related to the Vilmur or Carrier families although I am descended from other French Canadians. My interest is that I am writing the dialog for the Adams County Historical Society’s annual cemetery walk during which actors portray various persons at their graves. This year the walk is in Highland Cemetery. I plan to have Emelia Vilmur Carrier at the graves of her children talking about her life and about the diphtheria epidemic of 1879.

Now, my question. Emelia had, according to the 1900 census, 8 children. Six of them are known to be buried in Hastings. Do you know where the other two are? Have you seen the St. Mary’s Church records at Assumption, IL? Do they include death records? Unfortunately the St. Cecilia’s records at Hastings do not. How many Carrier children were baptized in Illinois?

Thank you for any information you can give me on the Carrier family.

RE: Udelhofen
Sorry about the tombstone photo of Charlotte. Her tombstone had dirt and grass on it that I tried to remove. If I get a chance, I'll go back and shoot it again after the rain cleans it and before the grass grows back over it.
