Bio Photo Pleased to be here.


*I found out the hard way that virtually all of the bio info one places on their precious memorials they created, makes its way directly to world connect rootsweb, family search and ancestrydotcom, and many other personal blogs and sites with no credit of original ownership in place. This is only important if that issue matters to you.

RE: Absalom Pursel 167927511
I also found and created memorials for Absalom Pursel, 167927511 & Catharine "Boyer" Pursel, his wife, 167927536 at Greenwich Cemetery. If the records I found on Ancestry are correct he was William and Mary Ann "Iliff" Pursel's son and so I linked him with them. If those records were incorrect, let me know and I will remove them as his parents.

RE: Erik Bohnstedt
Hi Joan, I don't think you'll get far wit that. There have been some difficulties with that part of the family, difficulties that relate to his passing. The wife doesn't tall to anybody. Let me check with his father though, I may be able to get some help from him.

Erik Lee Bohnstedt
Hi Joan,

I was wondering if you remember where the info was obtained that Erik Lee Bohnstedt was buried at White Chapel Memorial Gardens? Evidently a photo request was returned flagged as a problem because apparently the cemetery has no record of him being buried there. I'm wondering if this came from an online reference that was in error. Any insight on this?

Thanks, Thomas Bohnstedt

RE: Erik Bohnstedt
Hi Joan, after I sent the reply I realized you were talking about Erik Bohnstedt and Bohnstedts in Missouri. What happened us this: Our Bohnstedt clan first settled in Ohio in the 1800s. One part of that family moved on to Illinois. From there one of the sins moved on to Indiana, and another moved on to Missouri. From Missouri one branch developed in Nebraska, but then later moved to Oklahoma. Another part branched off to the west coast. Bohnstedt name has just about all died out in Ohio, but there are still numbers in Illinois, Missouri, Okkahoma, Indiana. Also, from these main groups, many smaller sub-branches throughout the U.S.

RE: Erik Bohnstedt
Hi Joan!

You mentioned "a lot of Bohnstedts in this area". Which area are you referring to? I've been updating (and creating) memorials for Bohnstedts all over the U.S.(we're all related, you see, we all belong to the same clan).

Are you referring to Missouri, or Oklahoma, or some other region? Both the aforementioned still have substantial numbers of Bohnstedts.
