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: "Tusen Takk"
Bitte. Assuming you are also related? I am (loosely) via the Heckmann line.

RE: Roth, Memorial# 87878063 and Memorial# 89246093
Yes, and I double checked the original book - it has M as her middle initial. But one can't take these writings as 100% accurate - I've seen many dates wrong - that is why it is important to list the source of the information.

Can you put the note for Henrietta as: Daughter of Frederick and Augusta Wucherpfening >Arndt<

The book also had a brief biographical sketch for Fred's parents: Frederick Sr. and Marguerite (Michael) Roth.
I haven't been able to find their memorials and I don't know where they were buried. If you click on the photo I put on Fred's memorial you can read his parents' brief bio. In the book it was not clear which Mr & Mrs Fred Roth is in the photo. I thought, judging by the clothes, that they were his parents - so I didn't put the photo on his wife's memorial. But I'm no expert - what do you think?

RE: Maria Bunge
Hello, I based my initial comment to you based on my research on feel now having spent time checking many other records that your information (not mine) was correct.
I based my initial comment on my research on Mary Bucholz nee Bunge and found on the Washington, Select Death Certificates, 1907-1960 for her. It is only a transcription record so there are some transcription mistakes and have her maiden name incorrect. They give her name as Mary Bucholtz nee Bringe, age 56, Married, Estimated birth year 1869, Death date 22 May 1925, Death place Addy, Stevens County, Washington, Burial date 24 May 1925 Burial place Addy, Wn. Father: Gotfret Bringe, Mother: Mary Essling, Spouse: Adam Bucholtz, FHL Film Number: 2022255, Reference ID: 82
Now having today done much more research on the rest of her family, I feel sure that that some of the information on that death record is incorrect. (Best to get birth records rather than death records whenever possible)
I agree her parents are as you have on Find A Father: Johann Karl Gottfried Bunge born 30 Jan 1837 in Germany, died 19 Nov 1882 in Sheboygan Co., Wisconsin, USA & Mother: Maria Bunge maiden name Schmidt born 7 Apr 1842 in Germany, died 4 Jun 1918 in Sheboygan Co.,Wisconsin, USA. I have connected 2 more of her siblings to your memorial for her parents (you have them as your memorials # 75823045 Ernst & # 36569103 Bernhard) You will note I have edited the full names for siblings Ernst b 1863, Bernard b 1865 & Mary b 1868 BUNGE in Germany as I have now found German birth records for them giving their parents Gottfried Bunge & Maria Schmidt.
Of interest I live in Melbourne Victoria, Australia and this family is very distantly related to me but I do like to try to help get records correct. So keep up with your good work on find A Grave. Bye Barb

Thank you for putting the Larson family on Find A Grave, I really appreciate all the work you have done.
Guneld (Gunhild) and Even Larson were my great grandparents. Gunhild as I know of her, was the youngest of three Gunhild's in the Neri Nerison family. The middle Gunhild died in infancy, and the older Gunhild married Bjorge Olson.
I would greatly appreciate it if you would please transfer this families memorials to me. As I am a direct descendant of them.
Gunhild and Even Larson had a daughter Laura Larson, she married Alvin Monness, they are buried in the Dovre Lutheran Cemetery. Laura and Alvin Monness had a daughter Thelma Monness and she married William Novak (Bill). They are buried in the Lake View Cemetery in Cemetery.

RE: Samuel Kuesel information.
You're welcome and thanks for adding the info.
I'm sure this 'source' isn't 100% accurate but it is wonderful none the less.

RE: Memorial# 92499324
No I don't know where his wife is buried. Probably next to him. They had three children: Karen, Andrew, a farmer in North Dakota, and Martin, of Menomonie.

RE: Sister M. George Ann Schommer
When corresponding, please give the memorial number, otherwise locating it takes a lot of time. Basic Find A Grave rule, first memorial in time in the proper cemetery should remain and all additions made to that one rather than create duplicates. Almost all R.C. nuns technically have a first name of Mary, as seen on this gravestone. So either it should be written out as Mary, or omitted altogether. The M here just indicates that all nuns in this order have a Mary name. It would make no sense to include this on every memorial for every nun.

RE: Sister Jodway.
You are very welcome about the picture - it's great to share and to put a lovely face with her grave.
You've got most of the siblings. By the way Evelyn was a twin, her twin sister Delia died at birth.
There were 10 siblings: Anna, Elizabeth (died at 4 yrs old), Margaret Ellen, Evelyn, Delia (died at birth), Julia Salle, Oliver M., Angeline, Mable Theresa, and Florence Esther.
I have some more information I'd like to share with you. I will send it in a few days - it's from Sister Catherine Marie Feider back from 1978 to my grandmother.
