Anna Regina Schimming
I have a very old Choir book written in German with a pencil inscription for Anna Regina Tessendorf Geboren 7 March (I believe its the only thing searching I've found that fits the old German script handwriting) Gebauft (I think) baptized 25 March 1832. The rest of the notes I can not read or convert into English text. Next page lists a Auguste Schimming born 25 September 1856.

I have been researching Longfield, Genske, Schimming, Zarndt, Binger surnames in and around Dane County for 34 years on/off.

Thank you for all your efforts! This has been an exciting day.

I noticed that you contributed info/photos for two of my great grandparents, Andrew Gullickson (#31476790) and Martha (Mollie) Gilbertson Gullickson (#31476817). I was wondering if you had any more information for either of them (parents, etc). Anything you have would be very helpful. Thank you so much!

George Francis Horn
Jean, George is my grandfather and I was wondering if you could help me locate his grave. He died on 11/24/1985 in Dane County and is supposed to be buried in Cottage Grove. Well, I've walked both cemeteries I can find with Cottage Grove in their names, to no avail.

Hi Jean, I fulfilled your photo request for Ann and Robert Mark at Mt. Calvary Cemetery in Salt Lake. I do have a few more pictures of the stone, some close-ups; if you'd like them, let me know and I'll email them along. There is nothing on the back of the stone.

Thank you for posting the memorial for Louie Rolfsmeyer and linking him with his parents, Carl and Minnie. There were several siblings that joined Louie in returning to the Blooming Grove/Cottage Grove area in the 1930's and 1940's.

Jean, I looked and there are many profiles that need help. Please look. If you still want me to point the many that need the interconnection, I can do that.

There is a love for the past and it shows
Dear Jean, great input and a lot of work.
Hope Evangelical Cemetery has seen alot of your input. Is it possible to interconnect some of the relatives? For example # 26567748, the profile says that there are relatives and the program has an edit system to allow it.
Thank you for the consideration.
Respectfully, Johannes (Hans) G Hospel
