The pictures are beautiful, but Jacob and his wife were not celebrating their 50th anniversary. She died at age 52.

Carl, In Maple Grove Cemetery, my great grandparents were Charles and Christine/Christina Schroeder. I called Maple Grove and they said they were cremated, but they were "buried" at Maple Grove. Do you have an idea where they would be "buried" then? They died about 15 years before my grandmother died and was buried there, so it could not be with my grandparents. Do you have an idea?

Thank you for the pictures of the Schroeders!
