Bio and Links
Bio Photo Currently researching the Webert, Ausman, Bushendorf and Paff lines from Elk Mound, Wisconsin; the Gaustad and Brobak lines from Norway and Eau Claire; the McCroskey, Newcomb and Johnston lines in Champaign Country Ohio; the Hunt line from Massachusetts, Vermont and Ohio; the Adam line in Cincinnati and the Dieckmann line in Hungtingburg, Indiana.

I now live in South Australia and find it hard to visit the burial sites of my kin in America and therefore have been very grateful for all of the Find a Grave volunteers who have documented and photographed those sites which I will probably never be able to visit.

Thanks for the kind effort in getting this great, clear, high quality photo. Much appreciated. This sort of effort is what makes findagrave a great project.

RE: Nuriootpa Cemetery
Thanks for adding the memorials Michael, I just realised that I had previously found some of the headstones on a SA German cemetery website and had forgotten to add their memorials on here.
Acknowledge your transfer of the memorial for Wilhelm Eduard Sauer to me and the additional 4 photos.
Would you please transfer the memorials for Johann Friedrich and Anna Elisabeth Sauer to me too as they are my GGG grandparents who arrived in SA from Prussia in 1858. I have extra info to add to them too.
Sorry you didn't see the link that I added for the cemetery map before going there but really appreciate your effort in walking the cemetery for me.

Nuriootpa Cemetery
Thank you Michael for taking my many requests for Nuriootpa Cemetery and for creating the memorial for Wilhelm Eduard Sauer, my 1st cousin 3x removed. I don't know how I forgot to create a memorial for him and the headstone for him and his parents in German is great.
Great photos and it looks like a lovely, well kept cemetery to wander in.
Many thanks.

RE: Adam plots at Saint Mary
If the cemetery records have them there, they are probably there. I just couldn't find a headstone. The ground in that section is very soft and the stones just sink. Sorry I couldn't find it.

Raymond Frost
Thank you very much for the photo. I had that one for his wife but I didn't realise that Raymond was buried in the same plot until you sent photo, so once again thank you.
