Glad you were able to find them; seems change that people who created the memorial plus took the picture of the stone didn't spell the last name correctly. Good detective work!!!!

Nellie Nowka
I am going to have Find A Grave make a cenotaph out of this one since her name is on both markers; will have to happen on Sunday because we are leaving tomorrow and won't be back until late Saturday. Would you please delete the photo that you added to the one in Zion Cemetery? thanks!!!

Anna Fredricks
I deleted my memorials for Anna and for Fred. The 2 memorials set up in 2010 originally had a different spelling of the last name. Nevertheless, mine have been removed. Thanks for catching that!

Since it is pretty obvious that another contributor who posted an identical memorial almost a year after mine, just ignored it, I deleted the one I posted.

Thanks for the edits! I notified the other graver that I'd be willing to share that information if they want to keep the original memorial and add that information...

Bert or Berthold Haefaker
I would be glad to merge information and delete my entry, however more searches online into this gentleman's life lend to more confusion on my part!

I have not yet found his marker in the Valley View Memorial Gardens here in Manhattan, Kansas, and the owner/caretaker has not been forthcoming with the map.

I suspect they ARE the same person, but the Washington state marker has possibly the second spouse listed, and could be a cenotaph. Bert(hold)'s first wife was likely Emma,though she isn't on Find A Grave, that I can find.

I'd be happy to do whatever I can to honor the original entry, sharing, merging information....

RE: Edits for Parkview
I had no idea that website even existed! Who knew the city could actually be helpful! Thanks for your insight and help. It's very much appreciated.

Edits for Parkview
Richard, The additional info you have provided for various folks at Parkview is appreciated. I have already listed the block, row and space on several of the edits you submitted to me. The only difference I see is you have added the letters "CEM". These letters are not found on the location listing provided on the kiosk at Parkview, and I don't find CEM on the Parkview burial listings at the historical society. I'm all for learning new things, but I don't understand the significance of adding these 3 letters. Can you help me out?

Meent Cornelius

You sent me an edit for the birth and death dates for Meent Cornelius. Could you please let me know where you found that information? The cemetery seems to have conflicting records so I would appreciate it if you could share your source with me.

Thank you!

RE: Goldenstein
I transferred over most of the Goldensteins I had made memorials for in St Pauls. I accidentally transferred one or two to Mr Bienhoff. Sorry about that.

RE: Helena Geerdes
Judy was my husband's second wife. Judy's oldest daughter, Tracy, is about to become a grandmother for the 2nd time....any day now. Her oldest grandson just turned one last month; he is a sweetheart. BTW, we retired in 2007 and moved back to my childhood home in Nelson and now it is completely renovated and we travel a lot.

Helena Geerdes
I deleted Helena's memorial, but added the pictures of the stone on your memorial. My great-grandmother was a Gerdes, but I haven't been able to find a connection yet with the ones in Adams County.

Okay, I will make the changes as you wish. I am sure that anyone searching for him will be able to find him.

Alec Theesen
Hello Richard! I just have a question regarding the edits you are requesting. You have his name as Hildreth Jensen Theesen, with "Alec" as his nick name. The California Death index and the cemetery records have his name as Alec. Are you sure about his birth name? If he used Alec his entire life, maybe no one will be able to find him on this site if it is changed to Hildreth. Do you mind if I just place that information in the bio section?

Where to begin - this is a very large family - 13 children were born to the Adam Adler family. Adam Adler was born in Kolb, Russia; he had been drafted into the Russian Army in 1897 and immigrated to the United States in 1904. He also brought his mother Christina Brautigam Adler with him. His father Jacob Adler died in 1902 in Kolb.

How am I related? My Great-grandfather William Adler was the older brother [b. 1860] of Adam Adler, Jake's father. William Adler's oldest son , my grandfather, Johannes "John" Adler immigrated to the United States in 1913 and settled in Tacoma, Washington.

John Adler - Memorial #90710370
My father, Fred Adler, is the youngest child.

This makes me Jake's first cousin twice removed.
This makes me Jimmie's 2nd cousin once removed.

My current project is to add the Volga Germans that died in Kolb, Russia, so the families can be joined together with their families in Russia.

I have a 4th cousin [Adler/Eckhardt] that is associated with AHSGR and she purchased Kolb marriage, birth, death and military records from the Volgograd Archives in Russia. I did all the translating for her over a period of years. All the Adlers from Kolb, Russia that immigrated to the United States settled primarily in Washington, Nebraska, Colorado, and Oklahoma.

I hope this helps...Judi

Jacob Adler
Thank you very for correcting his birth place. I do appreciate it very much. When my Miller grandparents immigrated from Kolb, Russia, they lived in Hastings from 1914 to 1921. They moved to Tacoma, Washington, where other Miller relatives were living. I still have Reiber, Adler, and Miller relatives living in Hastings. Thank you...
