RE: Thanks

Hi Henry, so happy I was able to find them for you. Thank you for your kind words. Thankfully their stone was still in good shape, many there are worn or knocked over. So many of the requests might have headstones but they are unreadable or broken. This cemetery is not extremely large so I searched the whole cemetery. Many do not have headstones because most burials are quite old and people probably could not afford them. As you enter the cemetery,yours are on the right, just down from the first gate. Betty

RE: Dorothy Jung at West Lawn Memorial
Just added Dorothy's photos. I'm loving the fall colors in the photos I've been taking...just didn't take leaves into consideration when I started this task...the graves are invisible!
I'm happy to be able to help folks out in this way!!

RE: Robert and (Caroline) Buhler headstone
Henry,

You are most welcome. Didn't know if Donald McCormick (marker to the left of bench) was related or not. Step-son perhaps? I can delete it if you'd like. Just let me know.

Kind regards,

RE: Additional Hack Family Members?
I am going back to take the photos of these today.

I found four more yesterday:

Rodilia M. Hack, 10-30-1900 - 4-27-1954
Peter C. Hack, 5-1-1906 - 5-2-1923
Mathias Hack, 3-7-1868 - 5-8-1938
Rose Hack, 8-27-1876 - 12-4-1937

Same deal with photographs as before.

I'm not intentionally looking for the Hack family members. They are just near where I am already photographing.

You are most welcome! Section O at Christ Our Redeemer is a very old section, with many infants buried in unmarked graves.

RE: Jones Pictures
WONDERFUL! I'll check out the links as I go along. Did you tell me that your wife connects to the Atkinson group? Check out memorial #135952315. To my knowledge, this cemetery is not on the task force list.

Have a GREAT day!

Hi Henry, you are very welcome. Happy I could find them. Sec. A separates a bit in the middle and they were in the front row of the second section in front of the house.They were the only Rodgers in that section.I did check out sec. 3 but did not find any Rodgers there. You have a great day also. Betty

RE: Dreier's in Etna First Congressional Church Cemetery
I don't show Adelheid buried out of the Etna church in any cemetery. The only other Drier in the records in Magdalena, buried in Mt. Royal. From page 489 in the second record book:

4. Magdalena Dreier, widow geb. Vogtsberger. Born February 7, 1853 in Oberschaffhausen, Baden. Died January 29, 1910 in Shaler Township. Buried February 1, 1910 in Mount Royal. Age 56 years, 11 months, 22 days.

Mr. Royal is quite near Etna, so perhaps inquire there.

Koch Graves - Racine, WI
Hi Henry,
I added two more Koch memorials from a headstone I came across yesterday at Old Holy Cross Cemetery - not sure if these are relatives, but I thought I'd let you know.

William F Koch (1877-1942)
Antoinette D Koch (1878-1953)

RE: Photo Requests - Racine, WI
Henry,
One other thing that might shed some light, which has hindered me in my own research, is that some of the records for Old Holy Cross/Calvary were burned in a fire many years ago. So some older records are just gone. You may have found a grave that fits into that category.

But I'll keep an eye out for the names as I walk the cemetery.

RE: Photo Requests - Racine, WI
Henry,

My husband and I went back to the cemetery and searched around. There's a lot with with both Pier and Koch graves. Many are very old and weathered and we could barely make out the names much less dates. These were the legible graves:

Margaret Koch b. 10/16/1850 d. 3/25/1930
Theodore Koch b. 1/10/1831 d. 11/30/1900
Catherine Koch d. 1866

They don't have memorials, so I'll add them.

There was one old grave in German:
In Memory of
Eva Kath. Koch
Born March 1801
Died June 1872

There was an old grave for a John Pier:
died Aug 5 or 15 1885
Aged (I think it said) 78 yrs

There were also two old Buchman graves side by side that said Father & Mother. The father's grave I can make out "John Buchman", no dates. The other I can't read. My guess is that they were Eva's first husband's parents.

Unfortunately not the exact ones you were looking for. I'll keep the names on my list - you never know what I'll find. I'm out there often.

RE: Photo Requests - Racine, WI
Henry,
I added the photo to Helena Koch's memorial. I adjusted the photo so you could read as much as possible. When I blow up the photo, I can read:

Helen Koch
Born
Dec 27, 1866
Died
May 30, 1950

It's very interesting that her side of the monument is so weathered, but his isn't. Hers faces North - maybe it's from that good ol' WI winter wind! Their plot is right along the Western edge cemetery along the fence with someone's private garage just on the other side. You'd think that would provide a little shelter.

Glad I could help you with her anyway...I'll see what I can do about the others...no promises.

Send some of your warm Florida air up here!

Photo Requests - Racine, WI
Hi Henry.

You've presented a few mysteries here with your photo requests. This is one tricky family - I see they are all siblings!

-Anna Deinken: There is no record of Anna in any of the four Catholic cemeteries in Racine. I looked at her memorial page and read her obituary. I had the cemetery office look up her husband's name too - couldn't find him either.

-John Koch: Found his grave. The only thing that's readable is part of the main monument. John's side is legible, but the other side is weathered. Was his wife's name Helen? I'm guessing based on what I'm trying to make out on the stone. If you add a memorial, I'll add a photo -or- I can send you the photo.

-Eva VanBree: No luck finding her either. I read through her obit on her memorial page and see that VanBree was her second husband's name, so I had the cemetery office look up her first husband's name (John Buchmann) in case she was buried with him. The office just sent me a plot number for him, so I'll go back this weekend and look around near there. Stay tuned.

-Mary Pier: The office couldn't find her the first time around either, but just sent me a plot number. So I'll add her to my list for this weekend.

Sorry this isn't proving to be easy. If you can provide any more details, especially on Eva and Anna, I'll keep looking.

Jennifer
