OK, thanks - I've DECLINED your edit. Let me know if I can sort anything else out for you. Thanks again.

RE: Oak Hill, Watertown, WI
Confusing, but hopefully we can straighten this out. No, I'm not related. Memorial# 7149801 is one of thousands of memorials transferred to me by a now INACTIVE contributor, as explained on my contributor page. Among those transferred to me, hundreds of errors have been found, including duplicates, wrong names and dates, etc.

At this point, should your edit remain out there for me to approve?

Your EDIT for # 7149801 - Christopher Schroeder:
Birth Date: 1824
Birth Place: Hessen, Germany

If you wish to retract that edit, you can go to your PENDING edits and click on the x to remove it altogether. Or just message me, and I can DECLINE it.


Or is the Christopher Schroeder you are researching for your friend perhaps this one?

I see your edit for Memorial# 7149801 and I think there are problems with possibly the name, date and photo currently posted on Memorial# 7149801

Let me see if I can make sense of this. First of all, the headstone PHOTO needs to be moved to Memorial# 7149614

If Memorial# 7149801 is for a Christopher Schroeder that died in 1876, do you who his wife was and if he had any children?

See Memorial# 117124846 for another Christopher Schroeder in Oak Hill, with dates of 1817-1892

Your edit is to make year of birth 1824 for Memorial# 7149801 - Christopher Schroeder.

If this is confusing to you, I'm in the same boat, but will see if I can piece something together.

Russell burials St Albans

Dear Ms. Becker,

I am working on a family history for my son-in-law. He is descended from the Russell family that settled near Sussex in the mid-1800s. I am attempting to confirm three reported St. Albans burials, none of which appear on the findagrave page for St Albans. The three are:

1. Marie (or possibly Maria, Marian, or Mary) Elizabeth Russell, nee Brown, died 11/08/1871. First wife of George Russell. I have seen a very poor-quality photo of her tombstone. It appeared to show her name as Marie E., wife of George Russell. There were two buildings behind the headstone: one a green building with a low peaked roof and the other a taller, white, barn-like building. There were perhaps 8 or 9 rows of headstones between Maria's headstone and the buildings. The headstone is fairly tall (I'm guessing three feet or so), white stone, with a semicircular top. There is a circular image above her name, possibly depicting an angel in flight. I wish I could send you a copy of the picture, but all I have is my notes.

2. George Russell, died 12/02/1905. I am advised that he is buried in the part of the cemetery known as God's Acre.

3. Sarah Jane Russell, nee Butler, died 09/02/1939. I am advised that she is buried in the part of the cemetery known as God's Acre.

Thank you for taking the photo that I request for Paul Steiner. I appreciate it very much. Maybe we could work on Mildred together. I did find a maiden name for her. (Pingel) :o)

Hazel Bade
What a neat little adventure this turned out to be. According to the cemetery records Hazel is buried in Fairview Memorial Gardens next to her father, Charles. Searching the area I found that her grave is not marked. I suppose it is possible her ashes were spread here but I don't know that. And I don't know if Fairview documents that. So, again, I have to assume that her grave is unmarked.
Cemetery records do not indicate that her Mother, Anna, is buried in Fairview.
Thanks for the request. As you can see I did post a couple of pictures of the family plot.
I have also added a couple of pictures to her Dad's Memorial Page.
I feel bad that I could not find a marker for her but all the same I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Hi, I was at Hillside yesterday. I found the Zarse family plot. The cemetery is currently repairing and resetting many older stones, so I will add the pictures as they are currently. Some are in good shape, the stone that is probably Christopher's is unreadable. I will try to retake in the future after they are reset. Please contact me with any concerns. Sincerely, Dale
P.S. the plot location is Add. 1 Lot 67

John C Van Gilder small photo
In the VanGilder Cemetery, Mecosta, MI there is a John G. Van Gilder and a John C. Van Gilder. I believe the photo you put on both memorials does not belong on the John C. Van Gilder memorial--Find A Grave Memorial# 36129772 (look at the dates). Thank you.

RE: Lona Jewson
Thank you very much for the information. I suspected that this was Martha Leona but the name given left me uncertain. I have requested to take over management of her memorial and will get her bio and relatives connected. Thank you for her dates, which I didn't yet have!
My Jewson line goes from my Mother back to William and Jane Jewson. We follow their oldest son, Solomon's line. Martha and Fisher are from their second son, William's line. So far I have back to Thomas and Judith Jewson. But I need to fill in a lot of information. If you are interested, I would be happy to share what I have.
Thanks again!

RE: Anna Dott-Atteln
I do not remember. There were several Atteln stones. If I get there again I will check. Wish they had a better address for that cemetery. It was very well kept. Wish I had more time to do this. It is relaxing and good exercise.

Becker stones at St. Mary's
I tried emailing you 2x and both came back

Actually the same picture is in another site from a guy that has done over 100,000 pictures. St. Mary's in Menomonee Falls did not start until after 1905. So the stones that are before that, I am quite sure do not belong in this cemetery.

If you want I can email the man who has the other pictures and ask him about where he found the picture and if he knows for sure where they are buried. I can also check with the other cemetery to make sure.

this is from the St. Mary's site



Mr. Gregory Lauer

St. Mary Parish was dedicated on Thanksgiving Day in the year 1905. In less than one year, it was decided a cemetery was needed. It was common to have the cemetery on church grounds; unfortunately, the surrounding area of the church was all rock. Therefore, it could not be used. In 1906, one acre of land was purchased from Mr. Nic Becker, Sr., for a cemetery. It is located on a hill about two miles east of the Church on Highway 74 near the intersection of Highway 145.

The first burial was Catherine Rott, daughter of Mr. & Mrs. August Rott, on September 1, 1906. There are no records of the acquisition of the second acre which adjoins the cemetery on 3 sides. To the best of my knowledge this was in the late 1930's and it was a gift from Mr. Becker, with one stipulation: that each of his children was to receive a burial lot, which is now in a row near the double driveway of the cemetery.

I am on Ancestry.con, profile name 'ddietsche1'.
My tree is public, but not everything I have is on there right now. If you aren't on it, can I send info to your Yahoo email address listed?

I don't have a 'Ransom' Van Gelder/Van Gilder, listed in my tree, but who knows where they may tie in together? Most likely the same Dutch hertiage anyway

RE: Van Gilder

Yes,I am a descendant of William and his son Ami Van Gilder (Van Gelder). Great-Gr Grandson of Ami's son Steven W. Van Gelder. I grew up about 8
miles west of this cemetery.

I'm not real sure why these two later used "Van Gilder"... The rest of the family almost always used Van Gelder. I have quite a lot of information on the family, if you're interested.
They go back to the NY/NJ area, before the American revolution.
