tolle family connection
Dear Mrs. Turner,
I wanted to stop and drop you a thankyou for all the wonderful work you have done on the Tolle family pages. You have gone above and beyond,then I noticed, that James Henry Tolle 1867-1963, was your great grandfather, It was nice to see that we have some of the same lineage. It seems that James Henry Tolle had a brother Daniel born in 1847-1891, who had a daughter Nora Ellen Tolle who married Thomas Mathew Bastian.

It has come to my attention that I've doubled up on your memorial of Wm. Ed. Howard, #73920590, the husband of my first cousin Edith Brown Howard. Before I delete my memorial which has more pictures and information than yours. If you have no interest in maintaining your memorial I would like you to consider deleting your memorial so we will not have a double. If you do not want to delete yours then I will delete mime. Thanks.

Thank you for your editing suggestion. Guess I wasn't paying enough attention to that detail, even though it was on the page right in front of me. Opps! The correction has been made.

RE: Memorial #10059648
Thank you for your kind words.

Don't forget to check West Prairie View for people who passed from the 1960's forward. Both of the cemeteries are pretty full now, but in about 1965 or so (as nearly as I can estimate), most of the burials went to West - literally right across the road. There is often confusion because the obituaries always state "Prairie View," but most from the mid-sixties on are in West Prairie View.

I'm so happy I can help you with my boots on the ground! ;)

RE: Memorial #10059648
Okay. Thanks for the clarification on that. We have a lot of German immigrants in this neck of the woods and they have five or six "first" names and only Mama knows which one she's going to be called. If I make an edit like that, it's because I've been chasing her under her "first" name as given and everyone who knew her called her by her third middle name.

Challenges challenges... :)

Thank you! :)

RE: Youngs
I get the name thing. You'd be amazed at how often I'm called "Jan." I'm amazed. lol...

I just wanted to make sure that we were doing what you intended on the Young files. It's rather unusual to see identical stones for wife and sister. Assuming is never good is it? Meanwhile, I looked up Frank's obit and have sent that to you to use as you choose. It's a really bad scan, so the transcription isn't perfect, but it hits the highlights.

I love his church status. It made me smile. :)

It's really been a delight to work on these cemeteries this summer. And when people pick up the files that have been missing, in some cases for decades, it's the best feeling ever!!

Thank you for the edits!

And how tired to you get of people misspelling your name despite the fact that we're staring right at it?

Sorry! :(
