RE: Elizabeth Hallman
The large photo with names is a lot photo with the location of those in the same lot marked. If Elizabeth's maiden name is Ogilvie, these could be her relatives.

RE: Nicholas Eischens
Yes,both Nicholas Eischens were the children of Jacob and Anna (Kollei) Eischens. In the Scott Co. birth records, there is a stillbirth recorded for another child, Jacob, for Jacob and Anna, Helena Township, occurring on June 22, 1891. The mother's place of birth is listed as "Georgia" (Anna was born in New Jersey). There was another Jacob Eischens (with a wife Anna) living in Scott Co. at the same time, but not in Helena Township. And there is listed on Find-A-Grave one Jacob Eischens, child of Valentin and Elizabeth Puetz Eischens born and died June 21, 1891, and buried (in New Market I think). There is no grave for this stillborn child in the Benedict Cemetery. So this record could be an error made by the person reporting the birth or it could be that because doctrine at the time held that one got one's soul at drawing the first breath of life, the bodies of stillborn infants, having no souls, were given sanitary burials or were buried outside the consecrated boundaries of the cemeteries (without headstones or committal ceremony). It is curious that there are no other graves for any stillborn babies (stillbirths surely happened) in that cemetery. That's why I left Jacob's name out of the list of Jacob and Anna (Kollei) Eischens children. (Too many possible explanations, every one of which could be an error)

Your message?
Today's email from Find-A-Grave says you have a question for me but the questions/comments are all a year old (August 2014).

St. Nicholas
I've got "the book" out and am making a list in preparation for a trip to St. Nick. Weather here is extremely hot and humid so I want to map it out first (I hate hot and humid) :)

RE: Edna Simon Dirks Weckman
My understanding was name on stone which is why I sent the are right though they've been known to change things and usually without notice:) BTW in her bio she is called both Edna and Enda - a typo you might want to correct. Thanks for the fix.
