RE: Minnie Mithelman
Thank You for finding Wilhelmina "Minnie" Topp Mithelman's parents. I have been in the old german lutheran cemetery many times and never looked for them. I was surprised that you made the effort to find them. All I can say is so many names, so little time. Thank you again.

RE: Minnie Mithelman
Accordng to the obituaries, her parents should be in the old german lutheran cemetery in kellogg, or in the Trinity Lutheran cemetary. to date I have been unable to locate them.

Also, there are now several Find A Graves memorials & memorial numbers, for many of our Hotchkiss`s, yet none are showing their spouses, children a / or parents. I know another Find A Grave member was working on this & I thought if you 2 could maybe contact each other to get this all fixed ???? His contact information is; I do know how the family runs as this is my family, yet as I`ve been dealing with serious health issues ( chemo & radiation ) it get`s to be too much for me at times so ANY help is SO GREATLY appreciated !!

RE: Thomas Hotchkiss
I know from family Bible records and family stores that Thomas Hotchkiss was buried i Wheatland Co., New York, however, I have been unable to discover in which cemetery or where. His wife, Lucy
( Stinoff ) Hotchkiss moved to Hastings, Barry County, Michigan with her son , James W. Hotchkiss. Her daughter Sarah had married a Nicholas Groce, they divorced and Sarah also moved to Hastings, Barry County, Michigan where she met and married Samuel Law. Sarah and Samuel moved to Iowa and are buried at Hazlewood Cemetery in Grinnell, Iowa. Lucy died in Hastings, Barry County, Michigan Feb. 22, 1875 and is buried at Riverside Cemetery there. James and his wife, Cynthia Tent`Hotchkiss divorced and Cynthia is buried in Highland View Cemetery in Mecosta, Michigan. After Cynthia`s death, James moved to Grinnell, Iowa, where he is as well buried. However, Hazlewood cemetery states they cannot find any records of James being buried there, yet the mi8litary sent his headstone here. If you need or want further information, please feel free to contact me.

John McKeag
Please see memorial 74783299. I believe this is the same person HOWEVER I have him buried in a different cemetery. Even though my memorial was created first, I am willing to delete it since the other one has so much linked to it BUT we should make sure he is listed in the correct cemetery. Thanks - None to be Fogotten

William Carroll Warren
I think we do have the same William C Warren..Please review the following information, I can provide documents if required. I think you will come to the same conclusion.

William Carroll Warren was my great great great grandfather. According to 1850 and 1870 federal census reports he was born in Tennessee about 1821. The date of birth is also documented in his service records.
William married Cornelia Lenard Ayers in 1845 in Morgan County, Illinois. He moved his family to Iowa in 1852.

Their children follow:

Mary Louisa Warren (my line) 1850 FCR

Julia Abigail Warren 1850 FCR

Cornelia Ellen Warren 1850 FCR
1852 1913

James Monroe Warren 1870 FCR
1855 1936

Margaret Helen Warren 1870 FCR

Carroll Sylvester Warren 1870 FCR

I have documents supporting these relationships and the marriage of each child (so on and so forth).

William Carroll Warren enlisted in Company G, Iowa 22nd Infantry on August 26, 1862 and mustered out on 10 Jan 1864 at Davenport, Iowa.

William C Warren applied for invalid pension 29 Feb 1864.

Widow's pension was applied for by Cornelia L Warren in 1885 after William's death.

Please let me know if you need any additional assistance.

Matilda Fleck
In case you are interested, husband Joseph is buried beside her (Find A Grave #134000089). I created a memorial for him and will transfer it if you want it. I am not related. These are the only two Fleck graves in this cemetery.
