Amelia K Knudson Hi Susan, I am related to Amelia K. Cramer Knudson. She is my great grandmother's sister. The Danish church records show her birth date as 1868 as does a hand corrected death certificate. I think these are the correct dates but will certainly check again. Thank you Wendy Allen
Alma Magdalene Dietz Haines I suppose I should put the obituary I wrote for my mother Alma that the Canby Harold published, onto her page. The Oregonian called me and interviewed me for the obit they put into the Oregonian. All you found was a tiny funeral notice. I am not sure I want to put that onto her page but may change my mind. Don't have time to deal with it tonight. It was hard to get a straight answer out of my mother. One time she would say her name was Magadalene and the next day she would say no it is Magdalena. And another day she was say it was Alma Magdalene Ida. Groan. She went exclusively by Alma. Well, and mom of course. :-] Nathan

Their suggestion: ------------------------- Is her father Harold Downing?
US Social Security Applications & Claimes Index on Ancestry.com Virginia Downing Morando [Virginia Lee Haines] [Virginia Coleman] [Virginia Morando] [Virginia Haines] [Virginia Downing Downing] SSN: xxx-xx-xxxx Gender: Female Race: White Birth Date: 3 Apr 1918 Birth Place: Morton Lewis, Washington Father Name: Harold Downing Mother Name: Bertha L Short Death Date: Sep 1997 Type of Claim: Original SSN. Signature on SSN Card: VIRGINIA LEE MORANDO Relationship of Signature: Signature name differs from NH’s name. Notes: Feb 1940: Name listed as VIRGINIA DOWNING MORANDO; Sep 1944: Name listed as VIRGINIA LEE HAINES; 12 Mar 1993: Name listed as VIRGINIA L COLEMAN; : Name listed as VIRGINIA LEE MORANDO; 04 Oct 1997: Name listed as VIRGINIA L HAINES
------------------------- No Harold was not her father, he was her step-father. I went and saw my first cousin today, Virginia's son, and he said that Virginia considered Harold as her father. She had little memory of her real father who was a very mean person. He said his mother Virginia never married anyone named Morando that he knows of. His oldest sister was from some previous relationship but he does not think Virginia ever married the guy. It could be that Morando was the father of Virgina's first child. It is "complicated".

Re: Minnie Heuer Census Record Thank You very much. I may need help with her occupation and Birth State. Minnie and Bill's story is one of my personal favorites. They came over, worked for their uncle to repay their passage. Later their parents plus family followed and a third uncle plus his family. I have lost track of Bill, but their story stays with me. My own Great-Grandfather came here at age 14 and started working right away. Later he was one of the pioneers of Wright County, Iowa, helped organize the first church there and the West end of the Evergreen Cemetery was originally platted to him. My wife has a relative, according to the census, who was working as a ten year-old servant. I really admire those old-timers.
If it's convenient, yes I would like a copy.
You wouldn't know where George and Minnie are buried would you?
Bruns Hi Susan, I came across a headstone in the Carstairs Cemetery for B. Margaretta (Bruns) Poirier, daughter of Harry Bruns, (see #145130423). There is a family writeup and photos of her in 'Beyond our Prairie Trails, volume 2' Deb :)
Please note when I used the terms "Jr. & Sr." that is was just to help in the understanding of which person I was writing about. At no time did I see "Jr. or Sr." used in the records.
As to the three wives of Charles Jr, I did not see any of those names near the Webster lot. I can also say that Findagrave members have cataloged Lakeview Cemetery with pretty good accuracy, so you might have to look elsewhere (unless the former wives married again, and had different surnames after Webster.) It appears that much of the family lived in Belding, and only returned to Lakeview for burial. Perhaps that is where you will find the wives. I will forward the names of these ladies to a person I met at the Library in Lakeview to see if they are listed in any index. If I find any information I will send it on to you.
Good news for you. I have located Charles A Webster 1846-1920 & Emma L Stewart 1853-1913. Ironically, when you sent me the note, I was only 70 miles from Lakeview, and I had enough time before my flight to travel up there to gather the information for you.
The direct answer to your question was that the two remaining markers simply said "Mother" and "Father." No other information. The Cemetery had no information at all, and believe it or not, the city only had the records listing them as "Mother" and "Father." Thankfully they have a wonderful library in that town, and I went through the various local archives and newspapers. Here is what I can tell you. Charles Sr. died in Belding, MI on March 17, 1920. Emma Sr. died in Belding, MI on June 6, 1913. Emma Jr (listed as "Miss Emma") died on March 23, 1910. No city listed, but it was implied to be Lakeview, MI. William died in Lakeview either on August 27, 1896 or September 3, 1896. The discrepancy is because the newspaper states the date of death as "Thursday, last." The newspaper was published on Friday, so it is unclear if the death occurred the day before or the week before. Charles, Jr. has no local record, but his monument does list his birth and death dates. He is also listed as "husband" but no wife is buried there, so far as I can tell.
All the Webster I noted were listed as buried in Lakeview Cemetery.
If this helps, I also found a little information which might tie into the other children. The newspapers regularly listed the visitors to the city, and the names "Mr & Mrs Edward Webster of Belding" and "Mr & Mrs Ira Webster of Belding" and "Mr & Mrs Jay Pixley of Belding" were visitors of Charles Webster.
I updated a couple of the older photos, and also created memorials for Emma Sr. and Charles Sr. I have sent the date of death for Emma, Jr. to the person who maintains her memorial. If you will send me your member number, I will transfer Emma Sr. and Charles Sr. to you.
Edwin V. Andress Please know that Captain Edwin V. Andress is, indeed, buried in Little Cottage Grove Cemetery in Onyx, CA. He moved there after the war and spent time as an actor and musician in that community.
The marker at Wildwood Cemetery in Chesaning- Saginaw County, MI is what is called a cenotaph - a marker placed to honor an individual even though the individual may be buried elsewhere. I am certain the Chesaning historians have placed the marker in Wildwood because of his excellent leadership skills for the Michigan Sharpshooter Company K in the Civil War.
Ellis 'Percy' Ramage~ I have made two trips to Hubbard Cemetery and have been unable to locate his grave. His name is not on the list of burials provided at the cemetery. His brother John Ramage was buried there but either his body and/or his marker was noted 'later removed' in the index. His memorial is #81866350, he is bur at Belle Passi. Perhaps Percy is buried there too; just a thought.
