RE: Carl Timmerman Memorial# 136007094
Thank you for asking and I understand why this would be a good question.

Mr. Reins has not done his corrections lately because those dates are up for his approval.

We found it odd and still don't have the answer why they are not buried together but each are buried by their children at opposite ends of the cemetery.

The following obit should answer you question:

Carl J. Timmerman, 83, died Monday morning in his home at Kingston after a short illness.

A native of Latty, he was born June 14, 1875, and was married there on October 7, 1895 to Minnie Luth.

A resident of Burlington most of his life, he lived in Kingston the last 10 years.

Survivors include a son, Raymond; four daughters, Mrs. Hulda Dirth, Mrs. Lydia Thomes, Mrs. Delma Hamler and Mrs. Mildred Gustafson, all of Burlington; nine grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Three brothers, two sisters and two children are dead.

Services will be held Wednesday at 2 p.m. in Wallen's Chapel with the Rev. R. G. Beck officiating. Burial will be at Memorial Park Cemetery.

(Burlington Hawk Eye, Burlington, Iowa, March 10, 1959)

RE: You Are Awesome!!!
Thank you for replying, I don't know much about how Germany is set up, and barely know much of it's history besides war. I am searching in the area of Neuhaus an der Pegnitz, and I also know they were in Hanover for a little while, both from the 1850's on forward until coming here in 1883. Apparently in Neuhaus there was a large family estate, but I haven't had much luck in research. There was a letter from the 3rd Reich to my GGF informing them they needed to come claim the estate or lose it, some time in the 1930's. I don't know who has the letter if it still exists, but my GGF basically said they polluted the property and wanted nothing more to do with it.

The only resource I know besides Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.com for this area is on WorldGenWeb.org.

Any other references you could provide would be so appreciated.


Thank you so much!

RE: Sr Rosalie Deck
I can't take credit for taking the photo only for adding it to the memorial. My nephew attended the service for his aunt, Sister John Francis Danko (183029794) and took photos of all the markers in the cemetery, my part is cropping and adding them to the memorials. I'm starting with the 14 already on Find A Grave and will add an additional 30 or so to complete all of the burials at Our Lady of Divine Providence.

I'll pass thanks on to Matt,

Janie

I seen he just passed away, and that would surely be a burial that would be fresh in my mind had we buried him.

You Are Awesome!!!
The references for Germany that you have there are so valuable !!! it is very hard to find good places to search for Germany.
Do you have any for Bavaria / Bayern ?

I saw a note you left for Silentwatcher that you were looking for someone... let me know what you have and what you are looking for and I will see what I can come up with.... I have some good resources and some good experienced spirit on my team. I will be happy to share my resources with you as well.

Thanks so much!

Florien Deck #76581587

b g, Thank you for your note regarding Florian’s immigration. Here is some information I had found several years ago. This trip was just a month later than the one you found.

name: Florian Deck
event: Immigration
event date: 16 Nov 1865
event place: New York, New York, United States
gender: Male
age: 23
country of origin or birth: Germany
occupation: Joiner
ship: Bavaria
estimated birth year: 1842
departure port: Hamburg
literacy: Unknown
last residence:
destination: Usa
transit or travel compartment: Staying in the USA [Transit]; Steerage [Travel]
manifest identification number: 00010654
nara publication title: Germans to America Passenger Data file, 1850-1897
arc identifier: 1746067
Citing this Record
"United States, Germans to America Index, 1850-1897," index, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/KD3W-1T4 : accessed 16 Jan 2013), Florian Deck, 1865.

Note that no residence is given. He could have lived anywhere in Germany and since he was supposedly from Baden, I believe the Florien you found has a higher possibility of being our ancestor. I have one question in regard to residence. If the Decks lived in Baden, Baden, Germany in 1700-1800, today it would be (Baden-Württemberg? Note that the occupations of the two men are quite similar, joiner and carpenter. We know for fact that he was a carpenter. The approximate birth date for both men certainly fit Florien. There was talk among older family members that the name was changed from its original form to Deck when Florien arrived here. However, in looking at your file and the various web sites provided, I found that the surname Deck was fairly common. That fact is certainly encouraging in that we possibly do not need to be looking for Florien with a different surname. I just wish he and Margaret had been married with a couple of children when they came over. I could be sure then of what we are looking at.

Thank you for passing along this great informa-tion. Feel free to contact me through my e-mail, kinsearchn@aol.com

Janet
