Bio and Links
Bio Photo Despite all their best intentions, the majority of other online sources that I've seen are unfortunately fraught with misinformation. I recommend folks visit the Cemetery Preservation section in the discussion forums here. Plenty of good and valid advice there on how - or *if* - to clean up a gravesite before photographing; and important info on how (and how NOT) to highlight those faded, worn old inscriptions.

Remember to be good to your fellow Gravers, and enjoy your stroll through that slice of history out there!

I discovered Gertrude when searching for Judd Irwin/Erwin, a bachelor farmer I met in 1966. He was a folk banjo player and composer. He created a waltz to honor a woman named Gertrude. Judd has passed to Valhalla long ago but we may yet learn if the woman was his muse. I'll share if I learn. As a child in Milwaukee, two cemeteries near my parents home were refuge for me: Pilgim's Rest and Forest Home. When Forest Home built the pink marble mausoleums and gardens-it knocked my socks off! Best wishes and thanks! Allan

Lynne, I was researching music teachers in rural Wisconsin and found this memorial. Perhaps it could be placed in her biography? I do not know her. Best wishes, Allan

Gertrude Fern Wilhelm Gertrude Fern Wilhelm
(January 26, 1919 - July 19, 2014)

Gertrude Fern Wilhelm, age 95, passed away peacefully on Saturday, July 19, 2014 at Greenway Manor, Spring Green, WI where she had been a resident for the past year. Gertrude was born January 26, 1919 to Leonard and Lydia (Unke) Gasser of Prairie du Sac township. She attended Hillside Grade School and graduated from Prairie du Sac High School in 1937, and from the Wisconsin School of Music in Madison in 1942.

Gertrude married Lowell L. Wilhelm on September 26, 1945 at the Honey Creek Church. Gertrude and Lowell celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 1995. Lowell passed away on December 14, 1998.

Gertrude was a member of Honey Creek Church where she taught Sunday School and played the piano and organ for many years. When the Honey Creek Church closed, she joined the Black Hawk United Methodist Church.

Gertrude taught hundreds of piano and organ students in the Sauk Prairie area from 1937 to 2014. Her last piano recital was given at Greenway Manor this past year by Heidi Kuhnau. She also accompanied the Sauk County Male Chorus, Honey Creek Church choir, Camp Witwen camp meetings, and many Solo & Ensemble participants over the years. Gertrude enjoyed her cats, sewing, counted cross-stitch, cooking and entertaining, and attending the Witwen 4th of July celebrations.

Gertrude is survived by a daughter-in-law Mary Wilhelm of Antigo, WI; grandson Ben (Melissa) Wilhelm of Antigo, WI; granddaughter Becky (Ben) Stevens of Berlin, Germany; grandson Matthew (fiancée Jami Higgs) of Stevens Point, WI; great-grandsons Max Wilhelm of Antigo, WI and Elijah Stevens of Berlin, Germany; and many nieces, nephews and friends.

Gertrude was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Lowell, and her son Jerome (Jerry); sisters- and brothers-in-law Allen & Margaret Wilhelm, Harvey & Ann Wilhelm, Lowell & Rose Hasheider, Reuben & Esther Mueller, and Elmer & Lydia Luck; and many relatives on her mother’s side.

Special thanks to the staff of Greenway Manor in Spring Green, special friends Marla Sprecher and Barb Oelke, Dr. Dusty Koch, Family Care of SW Wisconsin, and many others who have helped the family over the years.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, July 26 at 11:00 am at the Black Hawk United Methodist Church, with Pastor Kendall Schlittler officiating. Visitation will be held at 10:00 am at the church. Burial will follow at the Honey Creek Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Sauk Prairie Hospital Foundation, the Black Hawk United Methodist Church, or the Honey Creek Cemetery Association.

RE: Anthony Sizer
When I visited Middletown last week, I found two Sizer headstones: those of Anthony and his son Daniel. I searched for Sarah's and did not find it, but I might have overlooked it. Her parents are both buried next to Anthony and Daniel. The Godfrey Memorial Library in Middletown has records of who is buried in the Old Farm Hill Cemetery, and a call to them might lead you to Sarah's grave. Another source is the Middlesex County Historical Society. Best of luck in your quest to find Sarah's final resting place!

Anthony Sizer
Lynne, I am writing to request that you transfer management of Anthony Sizer (1707-1753) to me. He was my fifth great-grandfather, and I am deeply involved in his history and that of his descendants. I have created a Facebook group called Sizer Clan, which is a forum for discussion of the family history and also the Middletown Settlers DNA Project, which includes descendants of Anthony Sizer, as well as others. Thank you for your consideration. Peter Irvine
