IMPORTANT NOTICE: FIND-A-GRAVE has just been purchased by Ancestry.com, which is a site with a hefty membership fee. I have contributed photos and information to this site out of love and joy, NOT for Ancestry's profit. I hereby announce that I claim copyright on ALL the photos I have contributed to this site, and you may ONLY duplicate them or use them on your site with my permission. I will be migrating to another site in the near future.
I have always loved old cemeteries, even as a kid. I find that they provide a profound sense of the eternal.
I love volunteering because of the blessing I received when Glenn Russell put a record of my nearly-lost ancestors, Patrick and Margaret Malone. Having those dates - with the name and date of their son John Malone, opened a floodgate of documents and links! (THANKS AGAIN, GLENN!!)
Recently I developed an interest in capturing stones with pictures of the deceased; I find these are a favorite target of vandals and we must save them while we can.
I live in Northern Indiana and can shoot pics in South Bend, Mishawaka, and nearby areas. Please feel free to use any of my photos. No need to credit me but please do credit Find a Grave.
Happy to transfer upon request anyone who is not in my ancestral line.
Interests: Barrett, Malone (New York, New England, Ireland and England)
Brabant (Quebec, New England, New York)
Webster, Foglesong, Baxter (Indiana)
Baxter, Bennet (Ohio)

correct spelling in Alsace for the families in Saint Joseph I am researching is:
Gooley - spelling Gulling
Chirhart - spelling Tschirhart
Meyer is the same
All from the Alsace, France area
|joyce roper||yenn - yann and Jenn family|
This family that came from Bourbach Le Bas has 3 different spellings - Jenn is the family name - when they came into the port of New York - most of them came in and had the name spelled Yenn - one family - Adam Yenn in Canton Ohio - Thiebaud Yenn to Saint Joseph Co., Indiana - Anton- and MIchael started out with the spelling Yenn but changed it back to Jenn - some of Anton Yenn's family went by Yann - Simon and his brother Edward - the other two sons of Anton went by the spelling Yenn - one buried in Rock Island - Joseph and Amos - buried in Davenport, Iowa - but they are all the same family of Jenns from Bourbach le Bas
Also in Saint Joseph Co. - related to the Jenn's is a family with the spelling Gooley - they also came from Bourbach Le Bas - spelling on that family was Gulling - not sure if the Gooley family in that area knows the French spelling
And yes the windows in the church are very nice - I had a chance to visit years ago
Just want to say thanks for all the info you added for my family - I didn't know that find a grave was sold - so sad to hear this - so many members have add family that will not like that fee -
families I am researching
|Neville Wilson||RE: Philomene Brabant|
The only information I have that provides any insight is the website "Locate a Loved One - City of Regina". When you search by surname at the site, you get the burial Block-Plot-Lot info. This allows you to determine burials that are next to each other or at least in close proximity. Even burials that are next to each other however do not prove relationship.
Philomene and Napoleon are not buried in the same block.
Napoleon Brabant (28462033) married Francoise Boucher March 17, 1956 in Regina. The Philomene Brabant (135819985) in the same cemetery was likely Napoleon's sister, born 20 June 1887, Lebret, Saskatchewan. The discrepancy over Napoleon's birth date comes from his WW1 enlistment document in which he himself entered 1 June 1893, but his age of 72 on his grave marker would make the 25 September 1890 date on Metis records more likely.

|Debra Dennis||Re: John Clauss|
Thank you so much for the photo of John Clauss's tombstone. Too bad it is so worn. Thanks again for your help. Debra
|Jeanette Watkins||Richard Baxter|
Richard W. Baxter was my great grandfather.
His daughter Mina Baxter Hogan was my grandmother.
Was surprised to see his photo here as I have the same photo.
Also have a photo of the 5 siblings together.
Paul, Emma, Clyde, Anna and Mina. I will post if I figure out how.
