RE: Walter Hueni
I did a little research and found another news clipping that states that Walters body was repatriated back from Cuba to the US. He died in 1898 during the war and the body was returned in 1900. Is this your same understanding?

RE: I will try harder to explain
No, it doesn't upset my day if you are slow. As a matter of fact, I do not follow up on edits I send as a rule unless someone that I got it from later on asks if I added it or if I sent the edit on to someone else for a certain memorial. Only then do I question or send a second time. Other then that, I send the edit and forget it. If it takes you a day, a week or a month I do not check back or care. I sent it to whom ever manages a memorial and my job is done. Not my worry. I have enough on my plate of my own to keep up with. I get 25 to 45 edits a day in emails and auto edits of my own.

It does not upset me if you or anyone else takes their good ole time. Everyone has more or less time then the other. And if they do or do not add to their memorials. I just send an obit to add as much info to someone's memorial, just to help someone researching a name plus it makes a much more complete memorial then just a name.

If people find faults in my memorials, then please correct me. I welcome people helping to improve my memorials. I am not an English/grammar major and do work with two web sites and at times I am very sure I make many mistakes and don't always pay all the attention to proper sentence breaks and paragraph spacing like I should.

Once again for anyone reading this, I do not do ANY editing of any sort of any obit edits I send to others and have no control in how they arrive....proper breaks or none at all. I just copy and past the original. If people fix, don't fix, like or don't like, add or don't add is up to them. I transcribe nothing. And don't care how long or if anyone adds an obit I send it or not. I do my best and send the 'Edit' and the rest is up to manager.
I am okay.

RE: I will try harder to explain
Let ME explain AGAIN too, for about the third time.... I DO NOT do ANY typing, editing, correcting or altering of anything I send to you. SO I am not going to change anything, like make proper sentence breaks or paragraphs, except to stop sending you obituaries that are only meant to make/improve YOUR MEMORIALS for the families.

I get sent them from the the web site owner to add if it is my memorial or take them from her web site because I am working on that particular cemetery. If it isn't mine to edit I just copy and past the info 'AS IS' from the original and send them to you. How they come to you in Find A Grave edit systems messaging is not my fault. I send 'as is' from the original sent to me.

Simple solution.....If copy and past screws them up and you don't have time to fix them from the original, instead of having you get so upset about something you are too busy to fix, and want to complain to me about something I already told you before I have no control over that is okay. I will just stop sending ANY obits or edits to you that improve you memorials. It's just that easy and far less work for me if that's your choice.

Cheryl Cook Singleton
Martha Mitchell's sister
Hi Nona
I believe we are cousins because in searching the dna match my mother and I are related to Martha Mitchell Burkhalter. Since MArtha Mitchell was born in Marion County, Tennessee -- I believe that she is the sister of Nancy Mitchell King -- my gg-grandmother and my mother's g-grandmother. They both lived in Marion County Tennessee.
It doesn't appear that any of us know the identity of their parents which would be very helpful in verifying all of this.
There is a findagrave memorial for Nancy Mitchell King - which was put up by our cousin Delwyn King (his grandfather and my mother's grandfather were brothers).
This could be quite a breakthrough if we can connect the dots. IF you are a member of we have a huge public tree on this website.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Cheryl - San Diego

RE: Pioneers Rest/Calvary
What you fail to realize is the old Catholic cemeteries were based on religion. Contact the cemetery office in Two Rivers and they will tell you their records sort the burials according to "garden", and still do as there are still some burials going into Pioneers Rest and Calvary.
The phone number is 920-793-5582.

Pioneers Rest/Calvary
What you don't seem to understand when I say that there are 2 cemeteries, is in the Catholic half (Calvary), non Catholics weren't allowed by the church to be buried on the hallowed ground there without special dispensation which were few and far between. Even a mixed marriage (Catholic/Protestant) couple, only the Catholic one could be buried there. The other one went into Pioneers Rest.
On the Pioneers Rest side, (Protestant side) as it was a public cemetery, anyone could be buried there, even a Catholic who wasn't allowed in the Catholic side.

Added by Shari Milks on Aug 16, 2016 9:00 AM

Educational material to allow you to "see" the correct information.
There are 2 cemeteries and not just one. PR is Pioneers Rest; CV is Calvary; FV is Forest View and HC is Holy Cross.
She can note that they are separated out according to where they are buried. The line dividing PR and CV is a straight row of trees that runs beside the bandstand there. That's how we know which cem. a person is buried in. PR and CV have been separate cems since their beginning. PR is the Protestant side and CV is the Catholic side, not just a way to control names, it's a way to locate a certain grave by its lot number. The two cems have different numbers.
Written by Jim who was the sexton at the Two Rivers cems. It explains a bit more.

No, the City of Two Rivers is not including a mystery novel here in this year's calendar.
Yet, there are many tales that could be told here in our City owned cemeteries. Buried
here are many of the hard working pioneers of Two Rivers. Most of them were "common folk"
with tales of many hardships as they picked up their roots and made their way to the "new

Early records are very incomplete and little is known on the cemeteries' beginnings. The
earliest known burial is that of Henry Stockwell, who died in 1847. there were people in
this area before that time, so it is possible that the cemetery was formed even before that.
Pioneers' Rest and Calvary Cemeteries make up the "old cemetery" as it is known by local
folk. Originally, there was an area of the "old cemetery" known as "Potter's Field." Here
persons who lived in the Town or City of Two Rivers had the right to a free burial. The
"new cemetery", Holy Cross and Forest View, were formed about 1909.

A tale of a sad tragedy happened October 28,, 1887, when the S.S. Vernon sank off the coast
of Two Rivers and all but one of the 40 persons aboard drowned. Eight sailors, who were never
identified, are buried in Pioneers' Rest Cemetery. A monument was erected by the local people
in their memory, and in 1965 the Two Rivers Historical Society erected another marker including
more information.

One of the most well known landmarks in the cemeteries is the "Voshardt Mausoleum" which was
built in 1914. "A first-class piece of work in every respect" is what H.F. Voshardt of Chicago,
Illinois had commissioned Chas. G. Blake & Co. to construct. The mausoleum has a white
polished marble interior with sixteen entombments within, the surnames of: Voshardt,
Kahlenberg, and Mueller.

It was decided in 1923 that the City owned cemeteries needed names, so a contest was held.
The City Council choose the names from all entries and awarded $5.00 to Miss Minta Schneider,
daughter of Henry Schneider, Sexton, for her submission of "Forest View" and $5.00 was awarded
to Thomas Hayes, son of Alderman Hayes, for his submission of "Pioneers' Rest."

Originally, Calvary and Holy Cross Cemeteries were owned by The Catholic Cemetery Society of
Two Rivers. With permission granted by Bishop Paul Rohde, these cemeteries were turned over
to the City in 1929.

Because records were very poorly kept in the early days and vandalism of the old tombstones,
there are several "unknown" burials. Now with over 11,000 burials, The City of Two Rivers has
installed a computer in the Cemetery Office. All records will be entered and rechecked for
accuracy. Already, a couple of "unknown" graves have been identified by sorting through the
old books and records.

Year round the Cemetery Department consists of three full time employees and one part-time
secretary. To keep the grounds mowed, trimmed, and looking great, addition part-time people
are added during the warmer months.

We wish to invite you to take a walk through your City Cemeteries and see for yourself the
history that surrounds you and the beautifully kept grounds.

RE: Thank You
Thank you Nona for the reply. Ill check Galveston for more info. I'm not a family member just found an abandoned grave (lost under a bush) years ago and when I'm in Galveston I clean off her grave and leave flowers. I'd very much like to see a picture of her which has started me researching her family. So far I've yet to find any living relatives. I'll continue my search.
Thank you so much.

Thank you for what you do and the time and patience it takes. I live in Okla but I've become attached to a grave in Galveston in the Lakeview cemetery so I was very happy and excited to see the grave listed. I'm amazed at how much info you had found on her. Could you suggest a way to find more info or pictures? Thank you so much you've made me very happy.

I went out a second time to be sure I'm correct. You are right with the grave location. I double checked it with the cemetery records. She is buried in the Anderson plot, directly behind Catherine Walsh and John Kelly Anderson are buried. To the Right of Dorcas is Eva May Anderson. To the left of Dorcas is Joe Wells, Lulu S Wells and Clarence Wells.

Hi Nona, it's Terri and i was just curious what you are referring to when talking about copyright photos of the ones taken in cemeteries on your profile page? I know copyright laws are sadly ignored every single day and as a photographer it's upsetting. I do not even post my old family photos because of people copying and claiming them. It's sad because I'd love to share them and all I want is for that person to document where they got the photo. I do not think documenting the source of information or photos is a lot to ask out of anyone. It is common courtesy.

I got my DNA results back and I need to know how to send them to you.

Two Rivers Cemetery
Your Becker's are NOT buried at Calvary Cemetery BUT they may be buried at the cemetery next to Calvary which is called Pioneer Rest.
Calvary was a Catholic Cemetery to begin with but times change. The free Manitowoc Genealogy website would be an easy way to check as to where
people are buried. Also, there are gravestone photos for many of the burials.

Hope this helps!
