Bio and Links
Bio Photo My quest to learn more about my ancestors began as a young teenager. My great-grandmother had a book about her Drinkard family, which was written by her first cousin. It was so interesting I was insired 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.

RE: Marjorie Schoenberger
Hi Gloria -

For what it's worth - I did a little more digging into the cemetery records and found that Sydney was originally buried in Lake Lawn Park cemetery, but was transferred into Metairie Cemetery in 1980. He is buried in a crypt right next to Marjorie.
I should be able to get a photo within the next week or two.

RE: Marjorie Schoenberger
Hi Gloria -

Thank you for your note.
The only link I provided was a general link to Metairie Cemetery where you could post a photo request. I did not send you any link directed to any individual.

That said, I have confirmed that Marjorie R. Schoenberger was buried on November 5, 1997 in Metairie Cemetery. She is not buried in Lake Lawn Park Cemetery. These two cemeteries are located right next to each other and their names are often confused, even in obituary notices.

RE: Edwin Gentz
Hi Gloria,

Even though the spelling is different that is the only Louisa Cemetery in West Point Township, Stephenson County, Illinois. I grew up in the area so I am very familiar with the location.
I'm sorry that I couldn't locate Edwin. I found other Gentz headstones, but none for Edwin. Those headstones are already pictured on the Louisa Cemetery site on Find A Grave. I searched the entire cemetery but came up empty handed.
If I get a chance I will search again and let you know if I come up with anything.

RE: Bessen
I could not find your other Henry Bessen at St. Leos. He is not buried with or next to his wife. I also could not find any of your Jostes at St. Josephs. I have looked on two separate occasions but will leave the requests open-maybe someone else can find them. I did find another Henry Bessen (1863-1944) along with his wife Emily and daughter Minnie at St. Josephs-do you want any of them?

Anna Christina Kruewds

I requested a photo a good couple months ago, but decided to delete it and added additional information.

Here is the additional information :
I would appreciate a photo of Anna Christina Kruewds, husband, Godfred, his first wife.
His second wife of Mary Kruewds at Saint Bernard Cemetery states : 'w/o Godfred".

I have found in census records that "Godfred" spell his first name several ways - Gotfried, Godfrey, & Fred. Also, in the census records I have found the last name spelled several ways - Krahals, Kruels, Krowel, Koruwels, Kroewels. He was born in Holland, 1845, and died some time after the 1930 census living with his daughter, Mary Kroewels. His daughter Mary never married and died in Apr 1982 in the United States Social Security Death Index in Madison County, Nebraska. Is Mary buried in Saint Bernard Cemetery? Her sister, Martha Kroewell Schroeder, is buried in the St. Bernard Cemetery.

Family typed notes from a great great Aunt state: "Anna Christine married Martensen and had one son, Paul. Martensen came to America to look for work and planned to send for Anna and Paul but was never heard from. Paul was raised by his grandparents Andrew and Dorathea Petersen [buried in Crown Hill Cemetery, Madison, NE] and Paul went by the name of Paul Petersen. Anna Christine married Fritz Krowel (lived in St. Edward, NE). Anna Christine adopted his two girls Martha and Marie Krowel. Martha married a Schroeder. "

Thank you deeply for taking your time,
