|Bio and Links|
While I have always been fascinated by graveyards, my interest in genealogy started only a few years ago when I started researching my 2nd great grandfather, who died in the Civil War. During that research, I came across this site and my Grandfather Purcell was my first memorial here. Since then, I have found many of my ancestor's gravesites already listed and I have created many more. It's been a fascinating and educating journey.|
Most of my father's relatives were of Irish/Scotch/English descent and from Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana, via Philadelphia, Long Island, and Baltimore. My mother's family was among the early Danish immigrants to the Stonington Peninsula in Delta County, Michigan.
Unfortunately, I am a fair distance from all those places and am unable to regularly visit the graves of my family. Find a Grave is the next best thing. I have found many helpful people here that share my interest in preserving our past.
The names I am actively researching are Petersen, Bonefeld, Hoi, Iversen, Allen, Armstrong, Atkinson, Purcell, Ferry, Pollock, Wood, Wiley, Coe and many others.
TRANSFERS, CORRECTIONS, FAMILY LINKS:
I will gladly transfer any memorial of persons to whom I am not related to anyone that is a relative. If I am related to a person and a requester is a closer relative, I will also be glad to make the transfer. Please make any transfer requests, corrections, or Family linkage requests via the Edit tab on the memorial.
Please be aware that, while I am happy to post obituaries, I may remove the names of individuals that are still living before posting the obituary.

|Bert Hager||RE: memorial for Frances Dupueis|
OK, I have now created a memorial for Frances Helen Hager (maiden name Dupueis) since we know from her obituary and the cemetery record at BAGS that she is interred in the Allouez Mausoleum. Also have added family links to her parents who were already in this database and to her husband Joseph Vinal Hager.
Please remove the other spousal link of the man named Francis J. Dupuis (#88937722) to Joseph Vinal Hager (#144803246).

Sending this correction in a message because the info is much different than what you have on here.
#88937722 should be Frances Helen Hager, maiden name Dupueis. You have name, birth and death info from a man named Francis J. Dupuis instead.
From her obituary she was born 6 Jan 1918 in DePere, Brown, Wisconsin and died 18 Aug 2003 in Green Bay, Brown, Wisconsin with burial in Allouez Cemetery. Married 26 June 1948 to Joseph Vinal Hager (#144803246), who was my 2nd cousin. Her parents were Peter Dupueis (#85112679) and Edith Lenz Dupueis (#85113117).
Thanks for fixing this.

Thank you for the compliment on my new photo.
Not sure what is happening with the Find A Grave newbies adding photos. One or two people are going through the cemetery and randomly taking photos and adding profiles instead of waiting for someone to request photos on the Find A Grave site. The office staff is having to field a sudden surge of complaints. The staff at Allouez Catholic Cemetery frequently contact me when people have questions about some graves or are looking for information. They will be contacting me now when they get complaints about those that are just recklessly taking photos and slamming them on to Find A Grave. In turn, I will report them to Find A Grave personnel. Unfortunately, those causing all the problems do not use their real names. That is a red flag right from the start!

Nice news stories added to his profile!
A word of caution - a couple "newbies" are going through Allouez Catholic Cemetery and Woodlawn Cemetery taking photos for Find A Grave like it is assembly line work. Photos are being posted for people who are NOT deceased. I mention this only because I see some of them posting comments on your profile page. People need to realize that just because a name is engraved on a memorial monument or crypt front, it does not mean there is a person interred, entombed or inurned there. They need to wait for a photo request or verify the person is deceased and in the grave, crypt or columbarium. I have been photographing Allouez Catholic Cemetery and Chapel Mausoleum for nearly 50 years, 10 years for Find A Grave, and am most disturbed to see the new trend of "assembly line" photos, many of them very poor quality photos.
It was be so amazing if I could find anything at all that you don't already have. I will definitely keep you posted as developments turn up (crossing my fingers!)
There is a lady at the Library who is extraordinary with genealogy... next time I head to the library I will see what she might find.
He may very well remain a mystery... but I will give it a go anyway! The University here is the historical societies repository for a big chunk of the state and has all court documents and basically any information that is findable. I'll check there, too, and see if anything at all turns up.
If you can detail what info is missing for you, I am happy to wade through some microfilm and search. I am just a mile away from the library! Names, year, and what you are looking for - obituary, burial info, relatives?

I'm sorry. I think I'm done. I found a bunch of old Memorial Day articles from the 1800s and I wanted to give info from that. Thank you so much.
I'm happy to try to help if I can. Mysteries are fascinating to work on :)
The 2 giant Allouez cemeteries are just a couple of blocks from me so I have been trying to capture as many headstones as possible during these warm months. A few new tools on the Find A Grave site do help speed that process, thankfully.
Should you need any lookups here in Green Bay on your own family I am happy to help.
