I am writing the first spreadsheet from the American point of view about 19th century rotunda panoramas. These were the biggest paintings in the world, 50 x 400=20,000 square feet, housed in their own rotundas which were 16-sided polygons. Chicago in 1893 had 6 panorama companies and 6 panorama rotundas. On September 18,2003 I found in the display case of Milwaukee County Historical Society the F.W.Heine diaries 1879-1921. These illustrated diaries are the only narrative of a panorama company, that of William Wehner (1847-1928) of Chicago who built his panorama studio in downtown Milwaukee. From 1885-88 Wehner produced 2 units of MISSIONARY RIDGE & LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN, 2 units of BATTLE OF ATLANTA, and 3 units of JERUSALEM ON THE DAY OF THE CRUCIFIXION. The Heine diaries are as important to the history of Rotunda Panorama as the letters of Theo and Vincent Van Gogh are important to the history of Post Impressionism. The diaries needed to be transcribed in German, translated to English, scanned to computer. Michael Kutzer, born 1941 in Leipzig like Heine, is transcriber of the F.W.Heine diaries. THERE IS MUCH INFO ABOUT FRANK TENNEY JOHNSON in the Heine diaries. Info to share. Gene Meier 1160 Bailey Road, Sycamore,Illinois 60178 815 895 4099 genemeier@frontier.com

I know nothing about this family. I checked on Ancestry and his wife is listed as Minnie there. Wonder if it is a nickname for Mabel.

Augusta Kamrath, nee Piske, @ Pilgrims Rest Cem., Milw., WI
Hi Ron, while entering memorials for Pilgrims Rest cemetery in Milw., I came across your memorial for Augusta. I entered memorials for a Carl & Augusta Piske. Thought maybe Carl could be Augusta's brother? His memorial #149585955. Also there is a memorial for a Mary Piske who b.&d. on 2/16/1935. Thought you'd like to know in case they are related. If you'd like a transfer, please let me know. Regards, Nadeen

Somehow the edits you suggested for William George Wieselmann (1886-1936) were approved by mistake. They were for the parents of William Wieselman (1863-1938), and I have removed them.

Hi Ron, thank you for the correction for Marion and Honor. I have switched the family connection to show that Marion is Honor's mother. Must've gotten finger trigger happy or something! Regards, Nadeen

Sophia Kamrath @ Forest Home Cem., Milw., WI
Hi Ron, I had a request from a gal to search for the tombstone of Sophia Kamrath. I went back to the cemetery and did find her stone and have inserted it into Sophia's memorial. Since I had photographed the entire cemetery, I couldn't understand why I had missed her, until I got to the cemetery, and found out her stone had been previously laying face down. I think the grounds keepers had put it right side up. Lucky for me! In addition, I inquired at the office if August Kamrath is buried there and they have told me he is not buried at Forest Home. You may want to change your location for him. Regards, Nadeen

Not sure! Haven't given it much thought because Darren was cremated and his third ex-wife has his ashes. She is living in Northern Wisconsin somewhere.

Lacorte
This man is next to a Betty Bush. She has a extra plate that says Lacorte above her name, and there is another plate on her stone below her name that says Johnny Roden son. Will post these later.

RE: William George Brousso
There should have been an explanation on the notice you received (check the little "i" bubble, tho' they don't seem to always be present).

Looks like something is a little odd with that edit. The edit we received was to link the same person (Dalton J Hill) as both mother and father. We accepted the link for the father and declined the one for the mother.

The only other information we received for this person was an old-style SAC on August 18, 2013 that named George and Helen Brousso as parents, but did not include any links.

Since there's only one space for father/mother links, if this is an adoption situation, one set can be linked and the others can be explained in the bio.

We've removed the link for Dalton J. Hill. If you'd like to resend the links for George and Helen Brousso, we'll be glad to accept them.

RE: Bird's @ Forest Home Cem., Milw., WI
Ok Ron, I changed her date to 1874 and made a reference as to why it's different as to what's on the stone. Regards, Nadeen

Bird's @ Forest Home Cem., Milw., WI
Hi Ron, the information that you provided to me regarding the Bird family has been completed. However, I have a question regarding Josephine Bird. It looks like I entered her birth year as 1873, but it really looks like 1878. Her mother would have been 48 at the time she gave birth. Is that correct? I linked her parents, but perhaps Josephine needs to be looked into further. Maybe you could call the cemetery and see what the plot card reads for her dates? Regards, Nadeen

William Kamrath
Hi,

I've checked the photo records for the Sunnyside cemetery without luck. His other relatives on findagrave seem to have been buried at Pilgrim's Rest in Pewaukee.

I'm going to check the Sunnyside records at the Waukesha County Historical Society. I have to make and appointment.

Note: his WWI draft record shows that he was born 25 Oct 1876 not May 1877 as you have here.

RE: Patricia Deastell
You are welcome. Glad I could do it.
Yes has been surprising at times to hear some of the stories and family skeletons that come out of the closets when some of the stones and memorials are found for some families.
I find a lot of women buried with names on their stones other then the ones they had at death. And so many are buried by their first husbands and not their second one, or by their parents and none of the husbands.
Sometimes I wish the stones could talk and tell their stories.
