Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a retired teacher from Wisconsin who became interested in genealogy in the fall of 2012. I'm looking forward to learning more about ways to find out information about my ancestors and my husband's ancestors.

I am more than happy to make additions and/or corrections to memorials. Please use the edit key rather than leaving a public message. If you are a relative and would like to have a memorial transferred to you, please submit that request through the edit key as well. Please state how you are related. Transfer requests outside of Find A Grave guidelines will be considered on an individual basis.

When I take photos at cemeteries, I like to take a wide shot if possible to include other family members. I usually create a caption for the photo saying who is in the photo. To see the caption, just double click on the photo.

I am granting permission to use any photos that I have taken for any non-commercial use. It would be appreciated if you would acknowledge that the photo came from me. Please feel free to use them on family trees and other websites.

*****************************************

Please check out the virtual cemeteries that I have been working on. If you have any information that you would like to share with me, please use the edit key or send me a public message through Find A Grave.

*****************************************
I enjoy photographing entire cemeteries, creating new memorials, and adding photos to existing memorials. I try to do a quick search to see if I can document family relationships. Before I go on to the next cemetery, I try to make sure that duplicate memorials have been removed and all memorials are actually in the correct cemetery (when possible).

Listed below are the cemeteries I have completed so far by county. The first year listed is the year I photographed the entire cemetery. The second year, if listed, is the year I last walked through the entire cemetery again looking for updates.

*****************************************

There are some contributors who create memorials for individuals and list them as "burial unknown". They wait for photo volunteers like me to find these individuals and create memorials for them in the correct cemetery. Then after the individual is found, the contributor sends a request to remove the "duplicate" record. It's pretty unscrupulous, but it's done. Please, don't do this to Find A Grave contributors who work hard walking local cemeteries and taking countless photos.

If I happen to find one of the people you have been looking for, please send me a thank you through the edit key, remove your memorial, and request a transfer. I will be more than happy to honor your request. I might even be willing to move my photos over to your memorial and delete mine under certain circumstances.

If there are duplicate records in a cemetery, a request will be sent to Find A Grave to merge the memorials. All the information, photos, etc. will be preserved. Find A Grave will decide which memorial to keep, which usually is the memorial that was created first in the correct cemetery. This usually takes about 1-2 weeks.

RE: Waushara Co. Cemeteries
Of the cemetery in between Lohrville & Spring Lake; its been a long time & I had thought there was one there but I may be mistaken. I know of Marr Cemetery on the left side as one travels west on Co. N.
Maple Grove Cemetery on YY. Many of the local farmers (incl. the Wilcox Family) and others are there. Chet & Beatrice Wilcox are there as they were our neighbors to the north of us.

We lived on our tree farm for 14 years but owned the property since 1952. Shortly after my mother died in 1999, the property was sold to Jon Wilcox & his brother-in-law (a dentist in Wautoma).

My wife & I had taken a lot of photographs of people buried in many Waushara & Marquette cemeteries.

Almond Cemeteries
I see you did three cemeteries in Almond in Portage Co. Are you also going to do the 4th one, too? Its the German Cemetery east of Almond on Co. D.

Waushara Co. Cemeteries
That is quite a list of cemeteries for Waushara County, as you have listed most of the ones listed. I would assume that you will be finishing up with the remainder later.
I believe there is a cemetery on Co. N in between Spring Lake & Lohrville and one on Co. YY in the Dakota Township near the White R. dam.
I used to live in Waushara Co. in Dakota Township on 19th Rd. off of Co. YY. We had 225 acres.

Mary Milheiser
I deleted Mary's parents that we had listed & inserted Gordon Hilheiser as her actual father as requested by you.
I don't have any info on Mary's mother Carol, if she's alive or dead & if she's dead, when & where she is buried.

RE: John Onstine #152649256
Hi Janet--

Thank you VERY much for posting the photo of John Onstine's grave (and for the edits). He's my 4G Grandfather (through his daughter Phebe). Prior to finding your memorial, I had no idea where he was buried - only that it was in Wisconsin somewhere. This fills in a longstanding gap on one of the more interesting characters on our family tree. According to legend, John and his parents escaped from Canada across frozen Lake Erie in the war of 1812, with his father and brothers joining the U.S. army. I have an image of a British "wanted for treason" poster that includes a number of the Onstines, as well as a copy of a Congressional resolution awarding them a large tract of land in Ohio for their war service.

Anyway, thanks again for the memorial. I would be happy to accept it as a transfer (I'm #47762842). Or if you want to keep it that's fine too. Just happy to have this valuable info out there! :)

Best,

Matt Ferguson

RE: Floyd Roegner #153175079
Yes, you are correct. Thank you for correcting my error. I do see that it now shows his father, Henry J Roegner. Henry was my maternal grandfather's step brother.
Best wishes

RE: Lany Moyer # 130251697
Yes, Lany is the daughter of David Eygabroad and Maria DeLaVerne. Her husband, Simeon, remarried after her death and moved to Saginaw, MI where he died on 23 Nov 1899. His second wife was Isadore DeLaVergne, who was a first cousin to Lany. Lany’s mother was the sister of Isadore’s father, Joseph.

Hello,

Someone else sent me the information for Herman's memorial. I will change it to the information you sent.

Berndt and Troeller family
Dear Janet, In processing your edits, it came to my attention that my memorials for this couple were a duplicate of memorials for these individuals created in 2009. Therefore I have deleted my memorials which were created in 2012. I hope this was not too confusing. I am please to eliminate the duplicates. Thank you, Cindy Gengler
