Bio and Links
Bio Photo Greetings enthusiasts! A librarian by trade, I love research and genealogy. I am mostly interested in the Keller and Klevorn families (my mother's maiden name is Klevorn). As I come upon other people of interest, I add them also.

I am of the opinion that cemeteries are places to honor and remember the dead; they are also places of healing and forgiveness. Our faith tells us that individuals who die in God's grace are part of the "Communion of Saints" -- to this end we need to approach this work with much reverence.

Fidelium animę, per misericordiam Dei, requiescant in pace. Amen.

All ye, who would honor
The saints and their Head,
Remember, remember,
To pray for the dead;
And they in return,
From their misery freed,
To you will be friends
In the hour of need.

RE: Thank you!
You are more than welcome! We really thought, with 30 requests from that cemetery, that we would find at least half of them. We did not find ONE. I called before going to see if they had records but as usual, no one had clear complete records. Then to see all the crumbling tombs, it was disheartening. You would think the church would step up and at least preserve the headstones that list who is in there.

A Long Line
Greetings. I appreciate your sentiment for cemeteries. I was raised in a small town in Missouri. About the time of the Civil War a large city cemetery, Hillcrest, was opened on a hilltop. My gg grandfather purchased ten plots. He owned the newspaper and recorded all manner of news.
He lost his health in a dramatic way. Died in 1882. The fancy funeral carriage was hired. People came from all around bringing the flowers of spring. He was the first burial in our family lot.
Among the mourners was my grandfather, Brent, age 6. He had already been put to work at the newspaper. In 74 years, my father would lead the procession that took his body to it's rest - a place he had taken me many times at sunrise or sunset. He, too was a newspaper man and knew much about people. There was a prosody about him that is within me. Exactly how did it get there?
Many would say, "Oh yes, I see the line of carriages forming on the hill. Those little children have work to do; but they'll be carried here." We were, after all, southerners of the root and of the limb. One at a time, and every time we had all changed. Fashions changed.
Who was the first to arrive in a special motor car? Who was the first to experience the indignity of being placed in a concrete vault? I know who was the kindest and sweetest; and I certainly know who was the cruelest. The lot is full. We no longer visit en masse. I doubt that many of us linger. It's one of the customs that has changed.

RE: God bless you!
Hi, Your Welcome, if you are referring to all the cross shaped headstones in the same plot as Barbara's is in there are probably at least 50 of them if not more that would need some cleaning up, I could probably get them for you weather permitting of course. One problem might be that there may be memorials that other gravers might of set up already. Is this for your private collection or for Find a Grave ? Let me know the details.

RE: God bless you!
Hi Steve-That was just one row. I'll essentially keep working on it when I get to St Adalberts until I finish the section.
There are a couple of you guys out there doing virtual cemeteries. Gabriel is the other one that I've seen. I haven't done a virtual cemetery before and I don't know if you or I could just add my entries to your virtual or if I need to make one of my own. Either way works for me...Mary

RE: Thank you!
Hi Steve-It would be my honor to do it. I spent many a day under the supervision of various Sisters and somehow they managed to get me to turn out alright. I'll make it a project and the virtual cemetery is a good idea. I'll do that. Also, when I was doing my paperwork to keep track (something the Sisters taught me :-) I noticed I missed Sister Wrobel. I'll try to get that next time I'm at St Adalberts...Mary
