Infant Walter Bohl, Jr
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: 1938
Milwaukee
Milwaukee County
Wisconsin, USA
Death: 1938
Milwaukee
Milwaukee County
Wisconsin, USA

Parents: Walter Bohl and Katherine [nee Bohl] Bohl. [Katherine's maiden name was Bohl, and she married a man whose surname also was Bohl.] My father [Katherine's brother, whose name coincidentally is also Walter] told me the child was named "Walter" [ie, Junior, after his father], and I have seen the stone myself, which does say "Walter."

The death year entered here is as reported to me by a volunteer photographer, from the Graceland Cemetery records, which I need to verify. I have entered the birth year as the same, based on my father's recollection that Walter Jr., Dad's nephew, died at birth or shortly thereafter. Walter Jr.'s parents had no other children.

This continues the "Note" under "Marker Transcription," as the space for "Note" there was too small to accommodate the following:
My Dad can help any interested person to find the stone, as Dad has made mental markers using names on nearby upright markers. Also, Walter Jr.'s stone is almost directly west of a post holding the wooden signboard carrying the letter "A" near a water-spigot. Tip for finding the stone: it is in a straight line between the post and the upright marker for "Wergin."

Note: The horizontal stone is in the children's area of area "A"--NOT in the modern, low-lying children's area called "Babyland" at the cemetery's far western perimeter. The turf has risen above the level of the flat stone, rendering the marker hard to find, although Dad cut away the overhanging turf is Sept 2010. Also, part of the stone has been blackened, possibly by lichens that have evidently cleaned off by someone. Note to self: view the stone again to make transcription and to add the transcription here. I think I recall the stone says simply "Walter Bohl, Jr. 1938."

This sunflower was chosen to memorialize Walter Jr.--Dad's first nephew--because (I've read) that sunflowers were grown by Volga-Germans, the ethnic group from which we are descended. Left by your cousin,
