RE: Frazier at Hillside Cemetery
Leslie,

Thank, you! I'm finished for now. I am, with fortune's blessing, going to be uploading an entire family tree's worth of relatives onto Find-A-Grave in the next year--the Fraziers are but a fraction of this effort. It is a rather slow process as narratives for each are slow in their maturation due to sometimes limited information, and my desire to only upload information that is unvarnished...

Thanks, Again! Pete

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.

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.

RE: Anthony Keller
Leslie,

Found the information for "Anthony" Keller while searching on the LDS site of familysearch.org.
Knew that his real name was Anton, and Americanized to Anthony. Also knew that he married Regina "Rachel" in Germany and had a son, Urban "Albert", before coming to America in 1839 and 1st settling in Cincinnati, Ohio and then moving on to St Anthony, Hennepin, Minnesota.

Found the following marriage record on family search: (all names are "latinized" for the Catholic church, ie: J Anton Keller, Regina Daub, etc)
Name: J. Antonium Keller
Spouse's Name: Reginam Daub
Event Date: 05 Sep 1837
Event Place: Neupotz, Bayern, Germany
Father's Name: Joannis Georgii Keller
Mother's Name: Mariae Evae Schaaf
Spouse's Father's Name: Petri Daub
Spouse's Mother's Name: Catharinae Elisabethae Heid
Indexing Project (Batch) Number: M97647-3 , System Origin: Germany-EASy , GS Film number: 367606 , Reference ID: 13

In doing additional search, found his birth record:
Name: Joannes Adamus Keller (should be Antonium, not Adamus)
Event Date: 1810
Gender: Male
Birth Date: 30 Dec 1810
Birth Year: 1810
Christening Date: 31 Dec 1810
Christening Place: Neupotz, Bayern, Germany
Father's Name: Joanne Georgio Keller
Mother's Name: Maria Eva Schaaf

Also found Urbanus's birth record and more info on the parents of both Anton and Regina. Was also nice to have finally found the correct last name of Regina, as some people have it down as Dahnl (which doesn't even come up in any search of German last names).

Hope this helps some.

Kathleen Bond, 3rd great granddaughter of Anton and Regina.

Hi, Leslie. My name is John Hilstrom. Recently searching this site, and finding lots of good info.
John and Margeret had 2 daughters, Margaret (White), and Eileen (Hilstrom). Eileen is my fathers mom.
Wondering if you have any other additional info to trace back or fill in some of the blanks.
Just curious, how are you related to John D ?
Thanks for your help,
John

Leslie, I would like to have control of this site. Now another individual has added a individual on the site who is NOT a relative. This is very dissapointing for this family. Please change ownership to Kay B. Thank you!!!! I have asked the person who added Rosner to please remove it.

John Janisch # 113978287
Hello,
Would you have any other info on John Janisch?
The dates seem to match up for my 2nd great grandfather. The last censuse I can find him is 1885 in Winsted MN, His wife is widowed in the 1900 censuse.
Thank You
