Mystery Solved
See photo you added to Memorial# 6636186 - for Matilda Bartosch. Per research, the photo you took is for a different Matilda, who was first married to Joseph Wurst, and later to William Bartosch. Please add that photo for Matilda [w/dates of 1873-1936] to Memorial# 136053260 - for Matilda (Veith) Wurst Bartosch, and then remove that photo from Memorial# 6636186 - hope this makes sense & thanks for that photo! NOTE: I requested a photo for Memorial# 136053260 for you to fulfill.

Thank you so much for providing a photo of the gravestone of Emile Albert Tisserand and his wife, Winnifred van Meter. Your efforts are appreciated.

RE: Tisserand
Thank you so much for all you are doing.
Yes, there are a lot of Vineys in Dane County and nearby. The first Vineys migrated from France to this area of Wisconsin and most (with the exception of my husband's ancestor) remained there. My husband's ancestor moved to Kansas and then on to Missouri. One of the Viney girls married a Tisserand; thus, the Tisserands are also related.

Hendrickson family tree
Ray-I have a book entitled "Historical and Genealogical Notes-Hendrickson Family of Long Island, New York.". It follows the Hendrickson family from 1636 to about 1940. My father's mother was a Hendrickson. Jerry 336905318

RE: Lore
Not family. I live near the cemetery where a bunch of the Lore family are buried. I did many of the memorials and 3600+ photos so am trying to get them posted. I get interested in a person and stop to do research and try to link them to family in the same cemetery or nearbys.

I'll accept a transfer if you wish, but it is ok either way.

RE: Runey/Ballard family
Hi Ray,

No, I am not aware of the Ballard history in Rock/Dane/Green County. I'm intrigued. I live in Jefferson, Jefferson Co. and grew up in Waukesha for the most part. The Ballards are a bit of a mystery and I am just starting to dig into that branch of my family tree. My Great-Grandma Adora E. Ballard-Traver-Ballering died when my father was an infant and her son, my grandfather, died when I was 10 so I don't have anyone to ask or tell me stories about the Ballard line.

Are you related to the Ballards? I would love any information you are willing to share. My home email is

I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.

RE: Roub info Found
Thank you so much for that info! I did not know that. According to family history Samuel and his wife helped organize the Richland English Lutheran Church in February 1859, and he was chosen elder. And on a map a cousin compiled, she had shown the cemetery and Samuel's home to be close to one another, so that makes sense. Judy

RE: O'Connor in Calvary
Hi Ray! Is there a phone number for Calvary? I got messages saying you couldn't find any of the O'Connor graves. I find it hard to believe that ALL of them wouldn't have headstones. I obtained the burial info from an online cemetery listing for the local historical society for Monroe cemeteries. Any way to obtain the location would be great!

Oh no need for an extra trip! But thank you just the same. Just glad to know where they are. I was just curious about what was on the ground. Thanks again for your help!

McDonnell grave
Thanks for helping me with my family research. The pictures turned out great! I have to ask, was it a shared grave? Catherine had a close up and James was the over all shot and so they looked similar. I also noticed something flat on the ground at the base of the stone. Do you remember what that was? Thank you so much for your time and help!

Thanks for looking for the Reans -- it appears the photo you posted for Alvira is the wrong one -- wrong dates and name --- probably a daughter in law. Will you please remove it --- you could create a memorial for her and post it -- Let me figure out who she is. I'm sad there aren't stones for Alvira or William. Thanks
