Enos & Catherine (Ludington) Williams
I'm looking for a photo of my great-great grandmother Catherine (Ludington) Williams's grave. I also need a photo of Enos's grave (Memorial# 21420131.) I would imagine hers would be next to his, since they were husband and wife. If you are able to help with that, it'd be greatly appreciated.

Hi Leah

I just thought I would let you know that I just e-mailed Ralph obits for James and Margaret McCormick.

That would be super - not urgent. They are very distant relatives - descended from my great grandfather's brother. When I was living in Atlantic, Iowa (ca 1985), my mother told me we had relatives in the Omaha area but was never able to make a connection. I did connect with & visit some distant paternal relatives in eastern Iowa.

Ralph Hammond-Green
Yes - that is his wife. Do you have access to an obituary for either of them? That would be very helpful. From the cemetery website, they appear to not have had any children. Thanks your help.

I was wondering, since you had posted and taken picture of the marker if you noted if there was a McCormick next to this one who might be a relative. I don't know his wife's name. Frank & Effie are his parents, both of whom died in Omaha.

Do you by chance know who is buried adjacent to him? Wife or children or parents: Mother = Effie; Father = Frank F

Yes, Emma Francis Lambert was my first cousin twice removed. She was the daughter of William Merritt Lambert and my great grand aunt Malinda Sarah Long. So Malinda's parents, Ephraim Long and Hanna Sarah Olinger are my great great grandparents and also your husband's.

In addition, William Butler Williams was the uncle of Vesta Janette Williams who married my grandfather's brother, Fred Snyder.

I think all of those people are buried in Prairie Union.

I agree, everyone is related.

Well, the short answer to your question is no, I don't know anyone in Shubert, but I have reason to believe that at least a few of them may be relatives of mine. I got interested in Prairie Union Cemetery because my grandparents are buried there. When I went down to look for my grandfather's brother (and found him) I discovered that a number of people there were related to them. After a couple of year's work on my family tree, I've identified a couple of dozen people in Prairie Union that are relatives. Basically, if you know anyone down there named Lambert or Keister, they're probably related to me. Glad you liked the photographs. The Shuberts were side by side, so I assume they must have been man and wife. Take care. Ken

Elizabeth's grave marker looks a lot different now. I just uploaded a current picture. I'm glad there is an older one with more information. I've finished uploading all the photos of Heston Cemetery that I can identify. I still have about 35 photos left, but they are VERY difficult to read.

Okay- I posted the photos for John & Jane. Please keep in mind the age of the stone certainly affects the quality of the photo, so I got the best shot I could. I hope they're to your satisfaction.

I know John & Jane have stones- I see them all the time during my travels over at Grandview. I have them and will post them shortly.

Hi Leah,

It could be that those who have used your pictures have not been sensitized to copyright issues. I have discovered some examples of people using my pictures. I have written them, they have apologized, removed the photo they have posted and then requested that I post my picture which I have done.

Hi Leah,

I am glad you like the picture. Yes you may use the picture for your ancestry tree. I assume you will give credit.

Photo John B Arteaux grave
Hi! A couple of years ago you very kindly photographed the above headstone in Sioux City. I am working with a friend on the memoirs of John B Arteaux (he was her great great uncle). We are hoping to publish them in book form so that other family members can know more about him. Would you be willing for us to use your photo as one of the illustrations?
Yours hopefully,

You photographed the grave of my great-great-grandmother, Louisa Clair (actually Claar but they spelled it wrong on her grave) at Old Greencastle Cemetery. Would you mind if I used it for my Ancestry family tree? I would greatly appreciate it. I have been looking for her for a long time. Thank you!

Harry Henry Stroesser
I was wondering if you might be willing to transfer management of my great-grandfather's memorial to me? (Harry Henry Stroesser, #77208334.) Or, if you would prefer to keep management, could you add the following bio? Thank you.

Harry Henry Stroesser was born 18 Oct 1878 in Heispelt, Luxembourg, under the name Johann Stroesser. How and when he became known as Harry Henry is uncertain. His parents were Peter (Pierre) Stroesser and Barbara Thines. They both had passed away by the time Harry was 14 years old. According to family oral tradition, Harry came to the U.S. in the early 1900s with his sister Clara. She married and settled in Minnesota, and Harry moved to Omaha.

Harry spent the rest of his life in Omaha, working as a carpenter (he became the city carpenter in 1914) and was very active in the labor union. He married Mary Josephine Craig on 8 Sept 1915, and fathered 13 children, 10 of whom survived to adulthood.

He died on 28 Feb 1964.

Calista & Cordelia Allen
Thank you for checking the plaques for Calista and Cordelia's names. I appreciate your efforts. At least now I know they really do belong with the "unrecorded dead".
