Bio and Links
Bio Photo In fourth grade, many,many years ago, I became involved with this wonderful hobby. Thank you for having this website!
Cemetery: euphemism coined by the early Christian writers. It is a Greek word for dormitory, a place to sleep.
"...passing down memories is the strongest link in the gossamer bridge that binds us as people."
David Baldacci.
"The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living." Marcus Tullius Cicero.
In eternal honor of our ancestors
Who left behind so much,
Who started here with so little,
That we might have everything.
Pax Christi.
Genealogy is the warp on which the fabric of history is woven. It is the most immediate, personal kind of history, and for many the most satisfying kind,rooted in the pervasive values of family and heritage. It is an essential part of the one great task each of us is called upon to undertake----the exploration of who we are.
From the Vesterheim Genealogical Center and Naeseth Library literature. Madison, Wisconsin.
A woman was trying to impress her friends at a party one afternoon. "My family's ancestry is very old." she said. "It dates back to the days of King John of England." Then turning to a woman sitting nearby, she said condescendingly, "How old is your family, my dear?"
"Well," replied the woman with a smile. "I can't really say. all of our family records were lost in the Flood."
They, who blazed the trail and broke the Virgin soil,
Ne'er garnered half the harvest of their toil;
To-day, wher'er they sowed, others reap
To them is sleep."
their brave deeds and, alas, too often their very names are forgotten.
""High fortune may be tossed away,
Nor health nor skill my long endure,
Only the name I bear is sure,
And since from it I cannot hide,
Lord, let me hold my name in pride."
It's hard to understand how a cemetery can raise its burial costs and blame it on the high cost of living.

RE: Note

I got the list done, if you have more name that you would like to have done, I'll be happy to do it. It's an easy cemetery to do. Just let me know.

RE: Kaufmann's
Which are in the same exact cemetery. There are no barriers on the property. This is a bit silly. I have already been ask to turn over all the names to some group. I told them I prefer to keep them in hopes that family members will want as I will pass on to them even if they are past 10 generations. For me they are family ...I am not you are not ....This is very very sad that this is happening but as this site gets more and more attention from different groups it is no longer a site of caring but of groups that want control. Ugh people

RE: Sister M. Schetter
I looked through all three of the sisters cemeteries by Silver Lake Collage and didn't see any tombstones for the other requests.

RE: Message

Sounds like that cemetery needs working on. Was the person going to send you the list of the cemetery by email or regular mail? That would be interesting to see.

How many family members do you have buried there?
