RE: Re: John E. Low and Emma Heiberger
I have one more for you. I have enough information now to be confident that Find A Grave Memorial# 7214298 Amelia E Dafter is Capt John Edward Low's sister, mentioned in his obituary. I've been attempting to track down their parents, but it seems this will not be easy, if even possible. In the 1850 census they are shown with a family named Wheelock in Milwaukee at ages 12 and 9. They apparently are already orphaned by this time. As you may know, the censuses before 1850 contain very little useful information, so unless another family Bible or other supplementary source turns up, it looks like we will be at a dead end on this one.

RE: John E Low & Emma V Heiberger
Good morning!

I have been working this family a bit more this morning because I am still trying to find out where Belle might be buried - no luck on that, but I have concluded that Memorial# 112859693 Jane Baker is Emma's mother. The 1850 Norfolk, VA and 1870 Washington, DC census show Jane Baker b approx 1803 living with the Heibergers. If you go to the Congressional Cemetery website and click on search and put in Emma Heiberger and then put in Jane Baker, you will see that it puts them in the same plot and Jane's birthdate is 1804.

Hilda Saum
Hello HWA. I had lunch with Hilda (Comer) Saum's son yesterday and he was unsure about the place of his mother's birth. The source of the DC birth place that sent to you as an edit, came from the 1930 census of the District of Columbia. Her parents were both born in Virginia, Page County, Luray. This info was taken from documents online at

W. Warder
Have you heard from W. Warder lately? I can't see where she has been on for over 4 months now. She was taking photos while I was inputting data. Please let me know, as I am more than concerned about her.

Permission to use photo
I've been looking for a photo of Charles Wadsworth Camp for months. Have you verified that this is actually him? May I use it in an article I'm writing?

RE: Re: Katherine Rauen
This line is connected to my great uncle by about five different marriages, so I can't really say I'm actually related. I just start following the records that pop up and assemble as many families as I can. I think I'm addicted.

RE: Katherine Rauen
Wow! That was quick! I've found Mathias Rauen's grave too:, if you wanted to post that as well. I started to work on the Anton Rauen family Wednesday night and so many records have popped up on familysearch that I've spent several hours over the last few days furiously sorting through all the sources! This is so much more fun than mindless video games!
