Thanks so much for the photo of Dina's marker. Do you know what year the stone was placed? I've updated her bio and could add an approximate date as well (not that it really matters). - Connie

Find A Grave Memorial# 41407368
Dear Jenny,
This is the grave of my great-uncle Stephen Mountain. Would it be possible to get a transfer to me? I would be very grateful. I have the information on him and his family. You have done important work by creating these State Hospital memorials, as everyone deserves to be remembered and to have a proper burial.

I am in agreement with you on this.I am not sure how I missed that. I think I have found where he may be buried and need to research it further but I found his brother, Thomas buried at Oakland Cemetery in St. Paul. I need to research it further to confirm it. Such as sad thing and hard to read what happened to him. Thanks for saying something

RE: Kirsti Williamson
Thanks for the information. According to our records, she was buried in Minneapolis Pioneers and Soldiers Cemetery (formerly Layman's) on April 1, 1909 (two days after she died). I'll double check with the burial permit, death certificate, and caretaker's daybook but I'm pretty sure that she was never buried in Rochester. I'll let you know what I find.

Kirsti Williamson
Hi Jenny, I'm curious what you know about Kirsti Williamson. Our records have her buried in Minneapolis Pioneers and Soldiers Cemetery in South Minneapolis on April 1, 1909. I looked at the list of people buried in Rochester's cemetery and her name is listed but there is no burial date for her there. Do you have any idea who purchased a marker for her? Thanks for all of your work on this.

RE: Anna Sophia Wille
Hi Jennie,

The reason I indicated that her body had been lost or destroyed is that in small town German churchyards grave sites of common people are recycled approximately every 20 years and the bones and any headstone removed. I visited all of the towns and churchyards several years ago.

I put more information on Anna Sophia Wille on the rootsweb world connect website. All of her children were listed as illegitimate in the church records.

Sex: F
Birth: 6 JAN 1775 in Beckedorf #25
Death: 27 APR 1836 in Ohndorf #19
Burial: 30 APR 1836 Hohnhorst

HintsAncestry Hints for Anna Sophia WILLE

1 possible matches found on

Father: Hans Heinrich WILLE b: in Beckedorf #25
Mother: Unknown (couldnt figure out.Too many Hans Heinrich Willes)

Marriage 1 Unknown UNKNOWN

Engel Marie Sophie WILLE b: 24 JUL 1807 in Ohndorf #29

Transfer request - Memorial 41006941
Dear Jenny,

we have communicated a couple of times in the past, and You were so grateful to guide me to Ella's grave. Meanwhile I have visited her 2 times, and I will visit her again this summer ... she means a lot to me, although I have never met her. After thoughtful considerations I would like to aks you if You could transfer her memorial to me ... it would mean a lot to me, and I would appreciate it a lot.

She was a cousin to my great granduncle, so theoretically I would not be entitled to ask You for a transfer, however I still hope You do make an exception to the rule ... through her grave / your entry I was able to start following my US family, which eventually let to personal encounters, friendship and new bonds between the Swiss Hausers and the US Hausers.

Thanks a lot.
Best regards
Andreas Hauser
