Hi Betty,

I'm sorry it has taken me so long to get this edited. I have added to the memorial that he was born in the village of Liebling. Let me know if you want him transferred over to you.

Thank you for your help!

I thought I sent you edits, but the two Dohes you have in St. Johannes need to be moved to Mt. Emblem with the rest of the family. Thank you

RE: Bach Cemetery in Calhoun County, Illinois
Betty,

I heard back from my friend and my cousin. Unfortunately, neither one has any idea where Bach Cemetery is located.

Sadly, so many of those little family cemeteries that were once located on someone's farm, no longer exist. Bach may be one of those.

The only suggestion I have would be to contact the Calhoun Historical Society in Hardin. Charley Nolte is associated with them, and he is extremely knowledgeable about some of the most obscure cemeteries in the county. He might be able to help you if you can find a way to contact him. He is a very nice man.

Emerson Retzer is also involved with the Historical Society. He is another person who might be able to tell you something about Bach Cemetery.

If anyone knows how to find Bach Cemetery or if it still exists, it would have to be someone from the Historical Society.

Their address used to be:

Calhoun County Historical Society
PO Box 46
Hardin, IL 62047

I couldn't tell you if that address is still correct or not. I believe I got that address in 2006.

The Historical Society is only open on certain days each week. (I don't know which ones.) They have a small building in Hardin, but I don't know the exact location of that either.

Good luck in your search. If you are successful, please be sure to take lots of pictures and add them to the memorials on Find A Grave. I'd love to see the photos.

RE: Bach Cemetery in Calhoun County, Illinois
Betty,

I've gone through all my old cemetery books and not one of them has anything listed for the location of Bach Cemetery.

I wrote to a friend of mine who is very knowledgeable about Calhoun County cemeteries and am waiting for a response from him. I've also written to a cousin of mine who knows a lot about the area.

I will get back with you when I hear from both of them, but things don't look too promising.

2 duplicates
Hi Betty, I just noticed that you have duplicate entries for Hienrich and Johanna Schroeder, 9746606 and 9746607 at Mount Hope in Palatine. You have 2 additional ones with the same photo at St John's Oakbrook, 130332351 and 130332326. They are at Mount Hope's old "Plum Grove Cemetery" section but not in Oak Brook.
thanks

Hi,
I wanted to let you know that on Sunday June 29th, St John UCC will be hosting Pioneer Day on church grounds from 9:30 to 4:00 including cemetery walks. I'm trying to get as many people with ties to the cemetery to attend. Were are digging deeper into the history of all the graves and need help from those tied to it. I can send you a pdf of the event info if you'd like.
thanks

RE: re: Mt. Hope cem. Palatine, IL
Hi Betty:
I think the only way to transfer ownership is one listing at a time. There is a place in each listing to click on "transfer ownership" and in that space you would put my id. I will be happy to assume the ownership of any of the Mt. Hope listings, but want to clarify that I am not a close relative of any of those listed there. Also, if in the future I receive a transfer request from a relative on any of those listed it is my policy to transfer. If it is easier for you to keep the ownership and you are willing to add information and links to certain listings, that's OK with me also. Whatever works out best for you is fine with me.
Best wishes,
Sue

RE: re: Mt. Hope cem. Palatine, IL
Hi Betty:
I am related distantly to some of these folks (some Berlins, Dammermanns, Rohdes other maybe others) through the Scheidemann family. My 2X great-grandfather Henry Scheideman(n) was a cousin of the Scheidemann family of Palatine. I've amassed quite a large family tree on Ancestry starting with the Scheidemanns in Palatine and branching out all over Cook Co. and even Iowa. I can add quite a bit to the find a grave listings, but don't know if it's appropriate for me to be the "owner" since I'm not a direct relative. Here are some of the other surnames of families that the Scheidemanns are connected with in the Palatine area: Sandmann, Wedekind, Trost, Watermann, Duensing, Bruns, Teyler, Fasse, Hapke, Hacker, Willbrant, Koenig. Please let me know if you'd like me to contribute or ? I'll be happy to send you in invite to view the Palatine Scheidemann tree on Ancestry if you are interested.

Hi
Not sure how you entered this person's last name but it is out of alphabetical order in your list of interments since B doesn't come before A.
Most respectfully,
Lisa

Hi Betty,

I found your email address thru the site "find a grave".

I am writing this mail basically because of your words on that site..

"Enlarging my family's knowledge of our
ancestors is a great way to connect the
generations. Would appreciate hearing from
anyone with connections to the Internments I
have posted."

My paternal family is ZUCKERMAN.

We have a large family tree for 7 generations. Our "branches" are in Israel, U.S.A. and Canada.
Still, we "miss' a lot and have many "holes" in our puzzele.
Making and working on the research of my family (a work I had started 6 years ago) I noticed that some brothers of my great grandfather immigrated to the U.S.A.

In my "tree" there is a HAROLD ZUCKERMAN whose father Isaac came to the states early on the 20th century..

Isaac was married to Anna or Annie they had 9 kids.

These facts and others I had learned from the census made in the U.S.A on 1930.

The family had lived in N.Y

The question now is - where are the descendants of those 9 kids?

If this sounds to you familiar, or not, please let me know.

Do you have any connection to this family?

If so, maybe we can share our facts and work together on our tree.

Hope I did not disturb you.

Best regards,

Dr. Leah Teicher,

Karmiel, Israel
