RE: Wipflis in Wisconsin
Mary, are you by chance on I've found several trees on there that might be helpful or might shed more light on the families you're searching for. Or at least it gives an idea of how some are connected.

RE: Carl and Mildred Wipfli
Honestly, I can't tell you why they say no change -- it could be that you added the edits without pressing the edit button first (as I've done that myself) or something else odd. I am not related, but I tend to tackle whole families and then try to connect them down the line, so I suspect the Wipfli's fall into this category. I can certainly try to dig up any info I can find though if you wish. I'm happy to help.

RE: John Andrews Dilka
I wanted to let you know a book has been written about the Dollke Family: Stories of the Dilk, Dilka, Dilkey, Dilky and Wagner families from Germany by David Purtee.

It has all the family from the Vernon area in it. A Copy was donated to the Wray Public Library.

I have contact information if you are interested in obtaining a copy personally. It has John and Katie in it.

RE: Eliza Bicok Hanson
Go to the memorial and click on edit and suggest a correction and put the info in that box so I can go directly to her memorial to make the correction.

Jen Caldie-Seeger Request Filled
Hi Mary,

I am very glad to have found the Caldies for you and I hope you like the photos. The lighting was odd that day, high and low, never know what I'm going to get until I get it home on the computer and start correcting.

I imagine that Lyle and Jen bought a double plot when he passed and at the time, maybe she had no idea she would outlive him by decades, even to remarry. It's nice that the family put her second married name on the marker, too. What was the name of her second husband and is he buried in that cemetery, too? Maybe I can find him.

Lyle Caldie Request
Mary, I found the in-ground marker for Lyle's burial and the other name on the marker reads: Jen A. Seeger 1901-1994.

The marker has a little banner that reads: Together Forever. If you'd make a memorial for her and make a Request, I will upload the photo to hers, as well. Just let me know.

I will have to update my profile about the SSND memorials!

I have information about Sister Dorothy but it would be easier and I would prefer to send it in an email. My email address is in my profile.

RE: Sister Maria Concetta - Olivia Komatz
Mary, I'm not related, I just have been working the convent cemetery. I did transfer her page to you, although it is best if you make a request for a transfer by using the edit tab on a memorial. That way you can have a copy of the email sent to yourself in case you need to follow up. It also has the memorial number and your contributor number which makes it easier. Some people will not transfer unless you follow that procedure, especially those with a high volume of memorials managed.

I don't know anything about her niece. Do you know if the niece was also SSND? If she was, I can contact one of my sources to see if she has information.

RE: Gerald Dean Gariss
Your welcome, I was a little confused, because of the spelling of the last name. Findagrave has it as Gariss, but his tombstone has it as Garris. Didn't if it was the same person or not, I just went by the death date. Denise

Trella and Myrtle
I was very happy to get those photos for you. Anytime you need something from the cemeteries in this area just let me know. I knew both Trella and Myrtle. In fact Paul Louquet and my mom were buddies. Both the Hockadays and the Louquets were good customers at my parents grocery store. For years and years and years.

Mary, I transferred the memorial to you. I believe that in order to preserve all of the information you should take the details from your original posting and transfer that information to the one I created so that the flowers from his sister are not lost but you do as you see fit.
Thanks for contributing to Find A Grave, it helps all of us with our research. Sharon

RE: Raymond Earl Harrell
Hi Mary,

You're welcome! Is Raymond Harrell related to an Eloise Harrel? She is buried next to him but the spelling of her last name is different.

RE: Lost Grandparents
I will take a look and also at the cemetery book and do a little researching. It will take me a few days. The weather is good today and tomorrow, so I will try to get out there this week too.

Great Grandparents
I live in the Wray area and am working on some Geneology. I noticed you made a comment you were struggling to find the burial for your Great Grandparents, possibly buried in Vernon at Glendale. I would be willing to take a look if you wanted. Needing names and dates to search.

Typing to fast, meant to say, I presume that he is buried in the same cemetery as his parents.

RE: Charles Edward Kier
SS records show his last residence as Benkelman, NE. Was he in Denver for medical treatment?

Jimmie Kier of Benkelman, shows on his memorial at Find A Grave that he had a brother, Billie that died in infancy. I did not know that. Do you have any information on date of b. and d?

RE: Lyle Lorraine Smith Kier
Thank you for the information. Her husband was my sister Laberta's father in-law. I am trying to fill out memorials for my KIER nephews and niece Judy Kier.

She died while her son Richard was dating Laberta, the year before they were married.
