King and Robison Family
Hi Orrin,
I know the Westland and King side as I am related to the Westland side (King is the married no blood relationship for me side). What Robison family do you know as I am related to Robison's.

I have Ancestry and found information that way and my Aunt Bev has given me information too on the King side. She knew Mary Ellen Westland King very well.

I just sent you a request to fix her birth date and gave you the wrong county, it should be Barage County, Michigan as the birth place.

Edit Error for Schmidt.
Hey Orrin,

You are going to get a edit notice for Lenna Schmidt (Find A Grave 104401944). I was trying to link her to husband Clifford (Find A Grave 119639149), but I’m afraid that I messed up and linked her to herself. Find A Grave won’t let me correct my error, so I thought I should send you a note to let you know.

Thanks, Steve

RE: Thanks for the picture
Hey Orrin,

You are very welcome.

She is buried next to her parents (Joseph on the left, Lolah in the middle, and Bonnie on the right.) I see that you shot the photo of Joseph’s headstone. So, if you remember where that was, you know where Bonnie is buried.

I could have sworn that I sent you a note about the search for Louisa Ottman, but I see now that I never got it done.

I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to find Louisa because there is no record of her at: This list was generated in the 1980’s by people actually walking the cemetery and writing down the names they found there. I figured that if they didn’t find her ~30 years ago, the odds of me finding her today were remote.

But just incase, I went over to the Sycamore library and had a look at the official Elmwood records. Sure enough, Louisa was listed in a plot next to the road within about 50 feet of the cemetery’s east entrance. The reason there was no listing for Louisa at the illinoisgenweb site is because there is no family stone indicating last name, only stones with first names. There are stones on either side of Louisa’s that are made of the same material and in the same manner as Louisa’s with the names George, Charles, Mary, Russell, and Lida E.

Cheers! Steve
