Bruhn family memorials
Thanks so much transferring the memorials for three children (who died in 1890 from dyptheria) of Claus Peter and Mary Bruhn. I have attached them to their mother, who was buried in California, but have not been able to find where their father was buried.

I appreciate all that you do so that our loved ones are not forgotten.

Lena Schwerdtfeger
Lena Schwerdtfeger first name is "Helene" she was the daughter of Christian John Schwerdtfeger. His Findagrave number is 57960243 in Oak Hill Cemetery, Benton County Iowa. On the Web site it says G.J. Schwerdtfeger but his name was Christian. It does look like a G on the Headstone, but it is not, it is a "C". He is my GG grandfather. Christian came from Mecklenburg, Germany, Leaving from the Hamburg port on the ship "Herschel" he arrived on July 27, 1855 in New York. He was 33 years old. He lived in New York by himself working and buying land in Tama, Iowa for about a year or more. Christian sent for his wife Frederika and family in 1856. They left the same port of Hamberg on the ship "Order" and arrive in New York harbor August 21, 1856 on the ship. Frederika brought with her Louis, Herman and Helena.

The Linking numbers are;
57960243 Helene Schwerdtfeger Scheible
57960243 C J Schwerdtfeger

Sorry about the message bombs!
Well, by now you are probably wondering if I am a total nut case! I had received an email about Harry Bradshaw that I thought was from you... it coincidentally arrived at the same time I had sent the request to you about the duplicate memorial. Turns out, the email was from someone totally different. I was responding to her questions on your wall, thinking you were the same person. So sorry about that! Could you please delete all these messages. Thanks for your assistance. :-)

Okay, my error this time. Can you please provide the post number for the one where you are? I am still searching... :-)

RE: Harry F Bradshaw
Hi, I took a look at the webpage for the American Legion's Bradshaw Hall. The photo that they have for the serviceman they honor is not the same Harry Bradshaw... The one they honor appears to be from a more recent war, and he is a flyer, not a sailor. Here's a link: I could not find the history of the hall on their website, so I cannot tell you more about this patriot.

RE: Harry F Bradshaw
Thank you! Can you tell me the post number, and also tell me if it's still active? Sadly, I have found that some of the posts that were formed to honor these men are no longer active. Also, can you please add your photo of his cenotaph in his hometown cemetery to the memorial created by the Battle Monuments Commission (#56759100)? We need to merge the memorials by moving the image and data from one to the other. Thanks!

RE: Katherina Shafer Bender
Thank you so much, it would be nice to have her. I am wondering if there is any way to learn if her husband is there, he must be with her, they died in the same place.

Johann Georg Bender 1801-1878.
Thank you for the transfer!
