Hi Gerry,
I have requested a link to Williams parents that I found on the Coffelt Report. I was also wondering if you have the ability to find a photo for William. There is a huge effort of trying to find photos of ALL the young men who died so valiantly in Vietnam. The Wall of Faces is accepting photos as well. Perhaps a obit or high school photo. Not sure you even live in Madison Co, but just trying to reach out. Thanks for all of your findagrave contributions. William served in the 1st Calvary, as did my husband.

I appreciate the offer on the newspaper article re the diary, but not necessary I am not related. If the article is small enough to fit the bio would be glad to add it or anything else on dates also, thanks

RE: Engaman vs. Engamann
Gerry, I noticed that you DID add some details to Mary D. Bruckerhoff for me. Thanks! But, I'll be picky today.

Since all the Engemanns buried at St. Anthony's Cemetery are from the Warren/Franklin Counties area, they ALL spell their names with 'nn', parents of Mary D. Bruckerhoff...her mom's name would have it as 'Engemann'...thanks again.

RE: Engaman vs. Engamann
One 'n' or two 'nn' is a good question and the answer is not seen in print. Conjecture. It's a history answer. Those Germans who settled on the west side of MO had to protect their families (border wars of Civil War, guerrilla fights, bandits, etc.). The 1860's-1900 was a rough time for any immigrants in western MO.
My ancestors wanted to be known as American and all who settled in Germantown, Henry County dropped the German spelling to avoid attention during those years.

My ancestors who remained in the German belt (settlements near St. Louis, MO) had no immigrant pressure to change their names; they kept the double nn spelling and felt no fear about their German heritage. So, we are cousins, same blood lines, same ancestors.
BTY, Engeman has two e...
Thanks for your interest in how this happened. BTY, other families from Henry County, such as Sickman, Hillerman, Hoffman, have the same nn cousins in the St. Louis area of Warren and Franklin Counties. Same thing happened to them.

RE: Lula Axelrod
I put the reason on the caption.. Lulu is buried with her husband as I assume since I was given the same location, but her name is NOT on the same headstone with her husband.. Her name has to either be put on the headstone if they are buried together.. But it looks like there is not enough room on that headstone, and a new one has to be ordered, or I can just delete the picture. Or is she buried in another area?? Because she is not buried anywhere close to him because I searched the entire area within the parameters of her husband.

I completed your photo request for the Thompsons. Unfortunately, there is no marker for them. In this cemetery the markers are clearly marked with the lot and space number on the headstones. This is the place you provided. The marker on the left is marked 2-381, 382 and the one on the right of the space photographed is marked 2-385, 386. Sorry I couldn't be any more help.
