Good afternoon,
That's a great obit for Harry and I'm wondering if you are related. He was a close friend of my grandfather's (Louis B Luther) who was also a member of the McCall Post.

Hi Marianne. I was at Woodlawn yesterday and took a few pictures. One was Lester and the other was Ruth. I placed them on the memorial. If you like them great. If you want me to remove them I will. Frank Germanson

Amanda D
Danzeisen genealogy
Hi, My name is Amanda, and my Great-Great Grandfather was John (Johan) W. Danzeisen. I have a nearly complete chart starting from John and Elizabeth up to grandchildren born in 2003. I don't have any information prior to their immigration from Germany and was wondering if you have any new facts that will help me trace the Danzeisens back even further. Also, if I am able to add anything to your research I'd be more than happy to help if I can.

Thank you,

RE: Bornheimer
Yeah, the quality of some of the obits isn't the best. Some of the microfilms are pretty faded. I sent you two e-mails with the direct copies, which should be the original sizes.

It really makes me happy to help others research their families because.... (1) I've received so much help from others in my own search that I'm honored to pay it forward and (2) It's so much fun to look for somebody else's mysteries when my own family's are driving me crazy. LOL

Let me know if there's anything else I can do. Fingers crossed that you can make the connections!

PS -- I didn't find any information on your "missing" Bornheimers, but without a date of death, there's really no way I can research those farther. Sorry.

RE: Bornheimer

I had great luck at the library today. I found all of the obituaries (except Ellen's) for the Waukesha Bornheimers. I've added them to the appropriate Find A Grave memorials and will also send them to you via e-mail along with some other articles I found on the family.

I also found an obituary for a Jacob Bornheimer, which interestingly was in the same addition of the 1889 newspaper as John's obituary, but it doesn't list where he was buried. The death notice reads:

"Jacob Bornheimer, an aged German resident living two or three miles south of this village died at his home last Thursday. He was one of the early residents of the county. The funeral occurred on Saturday from the Catholic church."

I called St. Joseph's Cemetery to see if they had any records other than what's available on-line... They don't. They referred me to St. Joseph's Church (which would have been the only Catholic Church in town at the time.) The church said that the Archdiocese of Milwaukee holds all of their records from that period. If you google the Archdiocese, it will tell you how to contact their archivist.

At any rate, I think that the obituaries themselves give you enough information to make some of the connections you've been looking for. I'm sorry I couldn't find everyone you were trying to find, but I hope this little bit helps!

Happy hunting,

RE: Bornheimer
If you'd like to give me death dates of the people you're looking for, I'll be happy to look when I'm at the library. (It's no problem, I have to go there anyway.) Some of the obits are available on-line through our library, but they seem to be missing a few years, which the library has in hard copy.

RE: Bornheimer
Hi Marianne --

I took a look for your Bornheimers in Waukesha resources. I hope I'm not overstepping bounds and duplicating your research, but I figured I might have access to documents here locally.

I think that Lena and Ellen may be the same person, based on census recorders.

There is a "Mary Bornheimer" who was a matron at the Waukesha Industrial Boys School in 1920. It looks like she's living with her brother, John, in 1930. I'm not sure if this is the one you were looking for.

In the Waukesha Freeman, there's a "Miss Bornheimer" listed in some advertisements in the 1920s, but her first name is never listed.

Don't know if that helps at all, but it's all I could find.

Who are you looking for?

RE: Bornheimer
Hi Marianne --

I was disappointed that I couldn't read the headstone for you, too. It's so badly eroded that I couldn't even read it standing in front of it. The only reason I knew it was his was because of the information in the St. Joseph burial database.

John is at the left end of the of the plot, then Agnes (whose stone reads "Aggie"), then Ellen, then Matilda, Clara and John (on the same stone). Those are the only Bornheimers in the cemetery.

Hope this helps your research,

RE: Rachel McDowell
Hi Marianne,

This is a great website, and contains a wealth of information for those researching their family history. I am happy to help any way I can.

As requested, I added the relationship link and corrected the bio for Rachel. I looked for Phebe in the nearby plots with no success.

RE: Transfer request
I forgot to include that I was raised very near to the Venango street address in the obituary, although in the 1950's. The neighborhood was solid blue collar and very safe. Donna

Transfer request
I did the transfer as you requested on the individual in Northwood. I added his name because my 2X great grandmother died at that time and her obituary is there. The copy is of the entire obituary list from the Philadelphia paper. I put everyone on that list on Find-A-Grave to help others in searches.

Hello. As requested I have transferred the two Welte memorials over to you for safekeeping. I'm sorry but I can't make out what is on the military emblem even after enlarging the photo several times. Thanks for the kind words. Take care.

There are 2 Rebholz. Frank John and Henry W Rebholz. I did Frank today, don't know why I didn't do Henry, I was right there. I'll get him the next time I go. Not sure if you are related.

I looked at all the pictures. About 6 had 1907 dates. I'll get an area picture on Sat.

Calvary Section 2. I taken pictures of most of the markers in that section, there not many, fewer readable. I put a few up. I will look threw my pictures when I get home. I have 3 relatives buried, only found one marker. If not I'll get a picture of the 1907 area.

RE: Thank You - Emens
Hi Marianne... I agree with you after a second look that these stones must all read "Emens" rather than "Emons" and I changed them all accordingly. I assumed it was a variation on "Emmons" when I added them as there are several of those here as well.

I've been walking through Kingston as there are several requests outstanding, and I decided to walk it and record the whole thing. Unfortunately, I am only able to get there at lunch time, and the sun has moved to such an angle that I am no longer able to get photos without glare and shadowing. Once Spring rolls around, I'll be able to get back and look for Jonathan and Mary.
