Hi Frank, Just wanted to let you know I haven't forgotten about the Wick's headstone. I've been out to Holy Cross 3 times in the past 6 days (doing some watering of plants), and the cemetery has a sprinkler going to water in a freshly sodded grave right behind the Wick's - their headstone is about an inch underwater right now. As a matter of fact - the ground in all the surrounding graves is completely saturated. Unless we get some rain this wee,, I'll undoubtedly be out there every couple of days watering, so I'll continue to check on it for you.

RE: Wiza
You're very welcome Frank - their headstone is one of the more beautiful ones that I've had the pleasure of photographing. They're located in a beautiful section of the cemetery well. Sorry for such a close-up on the names, but the hosta plant was guarding them closely.

Let me know if I can ever help you down the road!

Hope all is well. Found Walter and his second spouse, Rose--I made a memorial page for her and sent an edit for the link.
Take care, good luck,

Norma Brandenburg
Hello, Norma Brandenburg (buried at Lincoln Memorial Cemetery 1900 - 1914)is the sister of my Grandmother Dorothy Brandenburg (Pielmeier). Just wanted to let you know that the mothers maiden name is spelled Votova. I know this to be the correct spelling as I visited her gravesite at Valhalla Cemeter in Milwaukee. Thank you

RE: Reichow family.
Why did you do such an easy section. Do 5 E & F. or is it B & C. which is a which laid out so wierd. 5D is laid out by rows and graves. Row 1 is just behind the lots and graves count up from the north. Just counting you could walk to the grave.

RE: Reichow family.
You can not change a picture some one else has put on. You can change the order of the pictures. And put at the bottom. If you manage it and gave it to me I could not take it off. I can't do anymore than you can do. After you gave it to me you won't be able to do anything. I had someone added up icky pictures of my relative at St Joseph in Waukesha, I just move them to the bottom and mine back on top.

I sent you a bunch of Edits, for a man I met at Holy Cross, I doing his tree. Did you know the edit tab will auto accept after 30 days, if no action is taken.
