Ottilia Habel death date
Jesse, on this page: I've just done an edit to report that Ottilia died on 29 Nov 1939, not as it is stated on the gravestone as 19 Nov 1939. The death certificate for Ottilia says the physician attended her from January 3, 1939 until November 29, 1939 and the last day he saw her alive was November 28, 1939. You can contact me for verification if you wish; Ottilia's page in my tree is here: and the death certificate can be accessed there.

You can get this information on Ancestry very easy sad to leave it with no birth or death records. Thanks Bonita Meyer Meier #84006290

John Hennessy
Jesse, do you have this article?

Dubuque Herald, August 4, 1900

Executors of Archbishop Hennessy
File Will and Statement in
St. Paul.
There has been much speculation as to the value of Archbishop Hennessy’s private estate and there, therefore, will be much interest in the authentic statement of that amount. Archbishop Hennessy’s private estate is valued at $1,400,000. This information comes from St. Paul and is obtained from a statement filed by the executors in court there. An Associated Press dispatch from St. Paul says:
St. Paul, Aug. 3.- The will of the late Archbishop John Hennessy of Dubuque, Iowa, has been filed for probate here by the executors, Roger Ryan and Clement Johannes, of Dubuque. The estate amounts to above $1,000,000, $400,000 of which is Minneapolis real estate and personal property, being situated in Iowa.

The Minnesota property is divided among nine relatives. The Iowa property is divided between relatives and sisterhoods of the church.

Re: step parents
Thank you for your suggestion. We do not have plans at this time to add anymore family linkage fields, but I'll certainly put the idea into the hopper.

Ella Cornelia (Ellie) Bissell

Your entry for Ella has Find A Grave#125908782 & there is one under E C Bissell #129443070 that I think is the same person. Can you take a look at the gravestone & see if it's the same? (the pic just shows the initials, the same as her brother & father's)
Thanks so much..
