Bio and Links
Bio Photo Semi-retired model railroader who has just discovered the addiction of genealogy. I live in South Saint Louis County Missouri, but I am close to Jefferson County Missouri and right across the Mississippi River from Monroe and Saint Clair Counties in Illinois.
I most enjoy trying to link families together, finding out who are the parents, aunts and uncles, and grandparents of various people I have discovered here. When possible I try to find obituaries at the library and copy them into the bio.
If I can help you, please contact me.

Wondering whether you're related to this family, since you posted the memorial. He was the son of Jacob and Caroline.

I only ask because his godparents were Sebastian and Catherine Maurer, my 3rd-great-grandparents and I was trying to figure out what the connection was.

They came from Montbronn, in the Lorraine area of France. Since LaCroix is French, wondered whether any of them were connected in the Old Country, or whether they just became good friends once here.

Don't know if there are any other crossovers. I'll have to look at dates and christenings for the other kids you've got.

Thanks!

Her first husband Anthony and her second husband are entered at St. Johns Cemetery Middle Village Queens N.Y. sec/043 range U-103/104.
I have a photo of the stone if you would like it?
I just had it fixed.

Mary A Tayon
Found the missing link. She is the sister to my husbands great grandmother. Jennie, Julia Antoinete and Mary Amand Mareschal were sisters and they have a brother Francis (Frank). Still looking for him. Found the probate records of Louis M. Mareschal. Of course the e should have a ' over it to be correct. Did you send me a photo of a headstone for Louis Marishal? Someone did and now I can't find it. Over the years Mareschal was changed over to Marshal. Hope this helps you in your searches.

RE: Mary & John Tayon
Thanks for the info. You are just down the road from Oakdale and Mt. Olive. It seems that is where most of the family is buried. They were all residents of Carondolete. Thanks again, will try to get over there when it gets warmer than 30 degrees.

Mary & John Tayon
Hi. Have been doing family searching. As you know it can consume a lot of time. What is your relationship to them. I think that Mary may be the sister to my husbands greatgrandmother Jennie E. Marshall. The problem comes in when you check out the original spelling, I beleive that it is Marechal. My husband is a Eichelberger, greatgrandson of Guard/Garnder/Guardner/Guardies Eichelberger husband to Jennie E Eichelberger, nee Marshall. To the best of my knowledge they are both buried at Mt. Olive. Need to take a day and take pictures of all the relatives buried there. Have been making a list so that I will be prepared. Looking forward to hear back from you. We live on the Illinois side also. If it is Marechal then it goes back to Fort Charters, Fort Kaskaskia and Cahokia, all areas that you would be familier with.

RE: Dorothy Welsch Thiele Hergenroeder
Thank you for your help Michael. This problem grew way out of proportion in my considered opinion. However, everyone involved was trying to do what is right. Sometimes what is right isn't always without a little grief and effort.

Thanks again for what you've done. I believe we've all worked it out to anyone who is interested in Dorthy's family's best interest now.

_Chuck.

Alert to Duplicate Find A Grave Memorials # 58130216 and another # 10621583
I was filling in some branches on my families tree and I found that somehow two contributors had inadvertently created a dupicate of Dorothy Welsch Thiele Hergenroeder's Find a Grave Memorial. Dorothy is my maternal 2nd cousin

Michael There is your Memorial and another by Sam
Find A Grave Memorial# 10621583

The older one by SAm is listed was created by Sam in 2005. It however was not as complete as your Memorial as it has no photograph of the marker. I find that both are lacking some facts such as the Obituary I sent you earlierby email. Mr. Pasquin has refused to delete his part of the duplicate memorial as can be fully understood.

Mike, is should be noted that I've already sent a suggested correction to you and the other contributor earlier Sam updated his Memorial to update the connections between Dorothy and her two husbands etc. However he has no photo of the stone which your Memorial does.

I could fix the error if you'd allow me to use your photo on the Site Created by Sam. Or if you could post your photo of Cletus and Dorothy's headstone on his site. Then possibly remove or delete your's ????

I am only trying to clean up the issue for family researchers who can get the two sites confused.

Again, The family relation ship to me is not that distant but it does not fall into the generally acceptable transferrable catagory so that I why I don't ask for transfer to my name.

The final memorial should read:
Dorothy Welsch (Thiele) Hergenroeder
Birth: Sep. 24, 1919
Death: Mar. 3, 2005


Burial:
Saint Paul Evangelical Burial Park
Waterloo
Monroe County
Illinois, USA

Created by: Sam Pasquin
Find A Grave Memorial# 10621583

First Husband was: Cletus J. Welsch Find A Grave Memorial# 46880384

Second Husband was: Homer W. Hergenroeder Find A Grave Memorial# 15414390
