Hubert Gordon Collett
Saw that you are managing the memorial for Hubert Gordon Collett. Were you related to him? Just curious, as in my Cross family tree I have found connections to both the Collett and Cain families buried there.

Another thing you may or may not be interested in, I recently purchased an original copy of the William Cross book written by John Newton Cross and published 1933. Inside the cover it is signed by a Gordon Collett. I am thinking it highly likely that may the one buried here. Your thoughts on that?

RE: Hoelting
Sounds great! You might get a few more edit suggestions from me since I'm going through the entire cemetery. I have a copy of the cemetery records published in 2002, and I'm going through page by page. Now I'm about halfway through.

I'm going to be in the Texas panhandle over Christmas and I'll try to swing by the cemetery, but I don't know for certain that I'll have time. If another volunteer gets those pictures taken, then it will be all for the better.

RE: Willis Finnell
81507583 is the memorial number where I posted the pictures of the child Willis Finnell. The headstone next to it was a double headstone of his parents.
Office is closed today to check for other Willis Finnell, but one I posted is one you are looking for.

RE: Willis Finnell
Hi Gloria
Right now I am headed out to richmond cemetery again after seeing that there are two Willis Finnell on find a grave. The one I did find which was very worn and hard to read was in the section that it states and next to a double head stone of Celia and spouse. Please compare the dates of the two Willis finnell and see how they couldossibly be the same. The numbers could have been hard to read on where they were taken from? Let me know what you think. Was your Finnell a youngster when died? This is why I am returning to cemetery to see if I can find just one or two small numbers that match these dates. They are very worn. Will let you know later if I am successful.
It may be that I found the Willis Finnell for the other listing.

RE: Schneider
No I mean the picture on find a grave for Catherine Schneider # 79258063. I will get a full stone when I go out there. If it stops raining.

RE: Schneider
Did you put up the only marker in the plot. I took 4 directions of the plot and forgot to take that marker. :-(

About Ane M Christensen
Hello Gloria,

I am looking for my Great Grandmother. She was born in Denmark and came with a 2 yr old daughter to America and was the wife of Chris Christensen.

In the records and letters I have she called herself Mary or Marie, but no one knows her maiden name. I have a letter telling of her death and lack of funds to bury her, and I think her name was Ane Marie Christiansen (Father H Lars Christiansen-Mother Ane Marie Petersen?)

She died giving birth to her last child, which could have been either Chris (stillborn boy) or Christena, their last living child, and her husband, Chris, wrote to his oldest daughter Lena, that he needed money to bury her. However Lena was a widow with 9 children & had no money.

Very long story shortened, was this Ane M Christensen buried in a grave for the indigent, as in those who could not afford a boughten grave? And are there any records that are associated with this file? I would dearly like to know who and where my Great Grandmother was/is buried. You are welcome to message me at Thank you, in advance, for anything you can send me! Cristina Besendorfer

Angeline Edwards
I just wanted to say thank you so much for posting the picture of Angeline Edwards gravestone...I posted some additional information and pictures of her. My husband and I inherited a victorian hair wreath made by Angeline, which was given to Doloris Dunseith (formerly of Atlanta, MO) by her father who's father recieved it as a gift from Angeline. This is truly a family treasure and we feel so blessed to have jad it gifted to us. Please check out the pictures, it's very interesting! Have a blessed day <3

Hubert Gordon Collett
Just today I found that Hubert is connected to my tree through his great grandfather Asa King Collett via the Cain family that Asa married into.

Last week came upon a copy of "William Cross of Botetourt Co. Va. and His Descendants 1733-1932" that inside the front of the book had been signed by a Gordon Colleet. I highly suspect that this would have been Hubert Gordon Collett.

Saw in your profile that some of your ancestors were from the Drinkard fammily? Have several of them in the tree, don't know them off the top of my head, but perhaps we have a connection also?

William Cross of the book was my 5x great grandfather.

RE: William Henry Fleming - :-(
There nothing on the stone except the surnames. The Schulte are on surface markers which someone else took.

William Henry Fleming - :-(
I added this memorial to my virtual cemetery to retake after the leaves have dropped.

I added the other side to Mathias Joseph Schulte it no better.

Maybe a cloudy day. It was cloudy when I left home, 5 miles west and it was sunny.

RE: Stowell
Hi Gloria,

You are welcome. If you follow the family links for spouses and children, plus some of the other memorials have links in the biography and notes section, you should find a complete workup of the plot, which is a rather extensive plot.

Due to time constraints, didn't write down my observations of the inscriptions, so the memorials are based on interpretations of the photos. Will try and fine tune the inscriptions on the next vist. Luther's is the most weathered, so may not yield much more info than you had originally.

Holy Cross, Milwaukee

RE: John Jostes

You're welcome. I hope it helped.

Its not necessarily unusual that a name may not be on the plot. John's death was in 1913, and many of those are missing.

I did post a photo of the gravesite for all those interred there. The cemetery lists the following as interrred there:

John Jostes 75 1913
Louise Bourg 24 1917
Peter J. Le Blanc 67 1923
Eliska Le Blanc 79 1937
Alice Hunt 94 1964

RE: Gove Family
I'm happy I could help! :) I usually research individual families at one time, just in case name spellings are a little off in the census records. In the little bios, I tried to use the spellings of names that were used on the documents, just in case someone wants to look up that document. If I come across any other Goves in this area, I'll definitely pass them along to you - I'm just glad I came across a family member while linking :) Check out and type Gove into the last name search - there's so much information there - they even have a photo of Ransom Gove that you can order from them if interested :)

RE: Roscoe Beachum
Hi Gloria
Yes Medora is there, but there is one empty space between her and Roscoe. She is buried as Medora Powell French Kelly.
There is a memorial on find a grave for her including photos. Her memorial number is 6719515.
To easily find her, go to Begin new search and there is a blank space to enter her number and it will take you to it.
Thanks, Lee Manning
