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."

RE: Johann Reinhardt Schlichting
HI, Which one is his wife? Here are the Schlichtings that are in the register of Hillside Cemetery in Chilton.
Antoinette b. Aug 18?? d. March 21, 1870
Oscar R. b.1867 d. 1892
Elsie W. b. 1806 d. 1892
Bertha F.I. b. 1842 d. 1914
Reinhard F. G. 1835 d. 1897
Herman B. b. 1866 d. 1920
Hattie A. b. 1867 d. 1942
Carl G. b. 1871 d. 1927
The data for Hillside was lacking so a few years ago I transcribed all of the tombstones. It's possible that he is buried there with no stone. They are all in the same general vicinity.
Next week I will go to the court house to see if there is a death record for him in Calumet co.

I added the gravestone to Charles' web-page as well. You can go on and change the order back to what it was and put the gravestone picture on the back page.

My Johnsons are not related to your Johnsons -- and my mother's name was Johnson as well! There were plenty of them in the area!

RE: Mabel Robelia Johnson Overby
The old photo has been removed.

Thanks for the heads up on the Dunn County Genealogical Society meeting, however, I live in California and won't be back to Wisconsin until most likely the end of June and July. My sister works for the school system in Osseo and most likely will be working.
Thanks for the information.

Thanks so much for the relationship corrections and for doing such a great job on findagrave!

RE: Thanks!
Have you ever spoken with the Sisters? They probably have a Sister Archivist who would be more than happy to answer any questions. I work with the SSND memorials (Sister Diane who just died was the niece of an SSND. That's how I came upon your memorials.) and there are about a dozen Sisters for whom there are 2 grave stones! In very different parts of the country! So far, no one knows why. Annie

RE: Josie.
Newspaper article states she was despondent, baby had died 2 weeks before. Told her husband she was going to visit a neighbor, took the car and it was found near the bridge at the Chippewa River near Rock Creek. He notified neighbors and they dragged the river and found her.

RE: Sievert's
Hello Aavedt,
Thank-you for notifying me of the Sievert duplicate. I did not set the memorial up, but had it transferred to me because Ernest and Eva are my great-grandparents. From what I was told the first Sievert Find A Grave memorial was set up with a wrong spelling of the Sievert name and so it was not picked up that there was a duplicate. I will gladly delete the duplicate I maintain but request a transfer of your Sievert memorials to me so I my maintain my great-grandparents' memorial. Thank-you.
