RE: Irma Ruff
Interesting. Much better than the formal name.

Irma Ruff
I was wondering how you came by the name "Emma" in the citation for Irma Ruff? Her full name is Ermanilda Anna Ruff. I had never heard her referred to as "Emma".

RE: Martin Wangen tombstone
Yes I contacted the cemetery and they said they were going to clean it up, which I thought was very nice and helpful. Again thanks so much for taking a photo of Martin's tombstone.

Did you notice any other tombstones nearby. I know his wife Anna, and Anna's first husband Charles and her daughters and granddaughter are in the same plot too. I've linked them all on find-a-grave and marked their burial locations. I would love to get a copy of their tombstones too.

Thanks again.

Thank you for your work in St. Anthony Cemetery and your quick response to edits. Some of these old cemeteries are quite a challenge. You have paved the way to follow.

She is my maternal great-aunt. Would you be willing to transfer the memorial to me as I have much information about her to add...along with her many brothers and sisters. Look forward to hearing from you.

RE: Edits (Duquette)
Thank you! Being protective is a VERY good thing. So much misinformation out there. The time and effort you take to keep records straight is commendable - and St. Anthony's is worth it. Take care. Mary.

RE: Edits (Duquette)
Hello: The Duquettes have been very hard to piece together. Joseph Duquette and Olympe (Ellen) Tessier had 8 children: Priscilla was their oldest daughter, married to David Desormiers (Desomery / Desormy): Priscilla and David had 5 children together in Minneapolis. The youngest Duquette was a girl named Ida. I would attribute a listening error to “Eva” - which sounds like the French pronunciation of Ida (EE-da); and a transcription error to the LDS record of her death which reads “Ira Duguette.” As for the mother, Ellen was baptized Olympe, but most of her American records say “Ellen” or “Helene” (pronounced Ay-LEN - similar to Olympe which is pronounced Uh-LAMP). But it is all the same person. After being widowed, Ellen married her sister’s widower and moved back to Wisconsin. The sister (Adeline Tessier Mosse Londo) was my kids’ g-g-g-g-grandmother.
