|edith||RE: St John Kerr|
Thanks for asking! His name was Saint John and pronounced Sin Jin. His parents compromised on the name. They must have just liked it because it's not a family name (he is my great great uncle). I'll update the name to say "Saint" instead of "St".

Thank you so much for the pictures of my Fosdyck relatives. There are dozens of my Fosdyck family members buried at Oakwood; including a brother and sister, my grandparents and great grandparents as well as aunts, uncles and cousins.

Hi again -- thank you for adding the additional family members of Christopher and Isabell, and it was very generous of you to then transfer them. I suspect their son Gary/Garey and wife are also buried there, but have no documentation.
You had good information for the bios, thanks for that also.
The person you spoke to probably said if you cross a Willey/Wiley with a Frakes (or Pruett) you would get a Stoneking, there are numerous marriages between these families.

That is a wonderful photo, and I'm happy to see he has such a beautiful tombstone. I was also glad that it had the dates for his wife, I have added her memorial and will let you know when I submit photo request for her (I have used up my weekly "allowance").
I appreciate your time and talent -- and hope you took a lot of Stoneking photos while you were there, you'll see I have quite a few requests in.

I have too. Going to have to do some more. I did find out their was a daughter from her first marriage. Elizabeth (Lizzie), she married Silas Thomas. If you can get me a date on when Ernestine died sometime I can get a copy of death certificate that would tell us. Thanks for all you help and for catching the name on the tombstone :)

Thank you so much for leaving the orange kitty tribute for my cat Akhenaten. I appreciate you taking time to do this. I do agree with you about orange cats. Akhenaten always had me wrapped around his paws, his whiskers and his tail! LOL Whenever he meowed, there I was with food, drink, or a nice soft brush...
May you and your family have a Peaceful Memorial Day Weekend.

What connection do you have to the Husteds/Buzzards/or Purdys that prompted you to find Sarah's grave & post the info. I am a great-great granddaughter & am looking for any info I can find.

|Jeff Jahn||RE: Ernestine Jahn|
I am guessing here but its possible she was a daughter of my Great Great Great Grandparents. You will find them in 1870 under William Johan. If so then she is a cousin of Anna Brandenburg Meyer Schell. My Great Great Great Grandmother was a Brandenburg and Anna's Aunt. Anna's first husband was August Meyer. He was kicked by a horse and died young living Anna with kids. She then married Carl. Whats more interesting is that August parents where Carl & Dorotha Meyer. You may have seen their tombstone their to. Dorothy maiden name was also Jahn. She was the sister of my Great Great Great Grandmother. Henry Meyer their son married Bertha Zielke. Her mother was a Brandeburg too, sister to my Great Great Great Grandmother & brother to Anna's father. Bertha's brother Carl Zielke married Mathilda Meyer a daughter of Carl & Dorothy, sister of Henry & August Meyer. Anna's parents and my great great great grandparents later moved to the Keokok county, Iowa area. Now i am guessing that the inscription on Christian Kamerzell and Wilhelm Hueter under Ernestine Jahn might say wife of. Makes sence she may have married Wilhelm after Christians death. She may have remarried someone else after Wilhelm since she wouldnt have been that old yet. Ah an new puzzle to try to figure out lol

I take exception to yout attitude about people who submit information to Find A Grave. I spent over 30 years doing genealogy on my family and others. I spent many years submitting information on Find A Grave so that other people can find their relatives for FREE after my husband passed. To me it was something meaningful to do. I shall continue to submit information as long as I am able. Alberta Daniels Withrow

Thank you for your input. Our introduction to findagrave.com was in a rural electric magazine. The author recommended the chalk method. We learn through new information such as yours. Please tell us more about the aluminum foil method or send a link.
