RE: Julia Wahler Parker
No need to send the file. Aunt Julia married my uncle Merrill Parker and from my understanding, Julia was a mean mom to her only daughter and left my great uncle to die in Nebraska by himself. I think I have learned enough about her, although I will pass your message along to her granddaughters in case they are interested.
Thanks again for the correction!

Julia Wahler Parker
Alice - Thanks so much for the correction of my great Aunt Julia's maiden name. All of her obituaries have her maiden name spelled as Whaler and I could never find her parents. Guess it helps if the spelling is correct. I see her father is buried in Freeport City cemetery with his first wife I believe, but her mother is still missing. Let me know if you ever find her.
Thanks again for the correction!

No, I am not related to the Eickmann family.The previous secretary asked that I add their cemetery to Find A Grave and since my husband has so many people buried in Chester Cemetery I agreed. My philosophy is "No One Should Be Forgotten".

How do you get transfers from Wilton Golson? He has memorials of my direct ancestors and my grand aunt and uncle. It says he is inactive and I did ask his friend for transfers, but heard nothing from him.

Thanks, Nancy

RE: Barbara & Helen Rath
Thank you for the information on Helen Rath. Do you want to manage her site? I will transfer her to you if you want me to. She is not related to me.

Added by Gina on Feb 27, 2013 5:56 PM

Barbara & Helen Rath
I am thinking that Barbara was probably a step-daughter, not daughter, as listed in Helen's obituary. I just put in information as is in obituaries, assuming the information is correct.
To unlink Barbara from Helen- you need to sent a correction from Barbara's site, so John Lartz can unlink then.
Sorry information I had was incorrect.

Amelia Eickman
Hi Alice,

Herman Eickman's sister, Amelia D (Eichmann) Dilly, is my great grandmother X2. We made a trip to Illinois this past summer to research the line.

The Eickman line does have many spelling variations...can certainly understand the desire to change the name after WWII.

Do you have much on the Eichmann/Eickman line...haven't had much luck with pictures...

Thank you for the corrections...

Merry Christmas,

Couple of Gravers
Sarah Garver, mother of Mary Glessner
Hello Alice,

I based my information on the 1925 Iowa census for Bruce Township, Benton County, which recorded the parents of those enumerated in it. It is not a foolproof census, as the names of parents are sometimes not known, or may even be in error. Unfortunately, there are often discrepancies between various records, as the human factor is always present. Perhaps the best course of action is to include all of the possibilities in the bio section.

I also noticed that I had erroneously linked Mary A. to both Joseph T. and Edward Joseph. The links have been corrected.

Thank you for your assistance.
