RE: Elizabeth Walters
Hello:

If your mother's parents are Elsie & Henry Walters then we are related. My last name is Walter (no s) although there were cousins of my father's who married into the Walters family. Elsie Walter's maiden name was Simmler. She did have a daughter named Elizabeth. If this fits then I have the family traced back to Switzerland, arriving in Paterson, NJ in 1879.

RE: Walters in Calvary
Thanks, Gordon. I just claimed all of them. I'll upload the photos later tonight.

New pictures
Gordon, I am a perfectionist so I went back this afternoon and replaced the first 3 pictures of Edith Walters memorial with images in which the afternoon sun light shines on the stone making the engravings so much easier to read and the monument itself looks more beautiful.

Walters memorials
Gordon, would you please click on the "Request A Photo" button on each of the 6 memorials so that they would show up on the list and I can get credit for them? You should also type a short note on each of them saying that "Marcial has already taken the photos" or something similar although I will be alert to claim those memorials before anyone else sees them. They are 155667611, 155667799, 155616015, 155668335, 155616120, and 155667533. Thanks.

I uploaded the photos this morning. You are right, he's buried in a "public space".

Elizabeth Bessie Walsh Walters
This is the one I was referring to but her name is not on the headstone, which doesn't mean that she's not buried in those 2 graves. The Elizabeth Walters on the stone died Sept. 4, 1912.

The other Walters on the headsone
Gordon, I see that you created memorials for your other relatives buried with Edith (at least I just saw one of them). I that's ok with you, I can upload the same photos to those memorials.

RE: Walters in Calvary
Gordon,
Your message made feel good, sincerely.
Photography has been a hobby since I was a child, but now with my F.A.G. commitment, my interest in photos reached another dimension that I had never explored before. If you ever come to Calvary Cemetery, please let me know and I would take you to your family resting places.

Translation
Hello Gordon,

I did a search on the inscription for Wilhelmin Sparbrodt Drake's monument that you pointed me to and it brought up this page and and something that I can't completely translate, perhaps you can help:

- her inscription:
Wilhelmine Drake aus Vosshagen geb. Sparbrodt aus Hellerhausen geb. 1. Juni 1829 gest. 21 August 1905

Wilhelmine Drake from Vosshagen (maiden name: Sparbrodt from Hellerhausen)
Vosshagen and Hellerhausen are small parts of the village of Wüsten (today: Bad Salzuflen-Wüsten)
Vosshagen = Kirchheider Str. 84
Ruhe sanft, die Du so treu gewirkt im Leben,
und Deines Fleisses Lohn wird Gott Dir geben.

Rest in peace, ye who served so well in life
for God will reward your diligence




the page I found, I don't fully understand the quote:
http://www.nhv-ahnenforschung.de/Torbogen/Orte/oberwuesten.htm

"Ehem. Oberwüsten Nr. 2
Frederick Dracke od. Drake auf dem Voßhagen 1535 i. Reg. ist frey, gibt I.G. 1 Gfl Schatz,
heute Kracht, Kirchheider Straße 84,
Geburtshaus des Vaters des Regierungspräsidenten Heinrich Drake"

former adress: Oberwüsten No. 2
Oberwüsten was also a part of the village of Wüsten long time ago

i. Reg. ist frey, gibt I.G. 1 Gfl Schatz,
(??? - I do not know, what this means, but I'll try to find out)


heute Kracht, Kirchheider Straße 84,
Geburtshaus des Vaters des Regierungspräsidenten Heinrich Drake"
today the adress is "Kirchheider Str. 84" It is the birthplace of Heinrich Drake's father who was an important polical person in the district of Lippe after WWII.

at Google-maps you will find a pictures of these adresses.
Place: Bad Salzuflen
street: Kirchheider Str. 84
street: Hellerhausen


Regards
Hans
