Caroline Zierleyn
Thank you for the beautiful picture. I am a decendent of the Zierleyn family.
Caroline Zick Zierleyn is my great great grandmother. Her daughter was Augusta Caroline Zierleyn. Augusta married Warren Chapman Smith. Their daughter (only child) was Isabelle Smith Ward (I don't have her middle name), this is my grandmother. She married James Raymond Ward. They had 10 children, one of which is my mother. Isabelle Smith Ward and James Raymond Ward are buried in St. Joseph City cemetary in St. Joseph MI.

Ralphs Parents
Ralphs parents are Pearl Jacquay 18290654 and Russel Jacquay 92807199. Who do you have listed as his parents? It might by his grandparents or a duplicate findagrave posting.

Ralph Jacquay
Hi there. I was wondering if I could have the memorial #43961297 Ralph Allen Jacquay. He is the son of Russell #92807199 and Pearl Jacquay #18290654 . Pearl's maiden name was Koeller so she must have buried him in her families plot. Thank you for your time and Happy Holidays!

RE: Rebecca J. [née Kilpatrick] McInnes (93443024)
Actually I'm related to the Zorns family buried at Oakhill and no one else. I was unable to find their graves and death information when I came across an old transcription done back in the early 1930's. I decided to enter it to help out others that were unable to find their family members. And then I found the Grand Rapids City cemeteries database, I decided to finish what I started and enter everyone for Oakhill. Let me know who you're related to and I'll transfer those memorials.

Take Care,

I noticed that you entered most of the McInnes family at Oakhill Cemetery in Grand Rapids, MI. Let me know if you're related to Rebecca and I'll transfer that memorial to you.

Take Care,

Dear Christine,
I have information on the Gabes buried
at Saint John's Catholic Cemetery, Allen Co.
Indiana. Their son, Henry W. Gabes was
married to my great aunt. I would be
interested in maintaining their memorials.
Thank you,
Phyllis M. Higgins

Thanks Cristine. These sons were born to Herman and Magdaline: (Edward F. Schnelker 40255230 born 25 Mar 1874 died 14 Jun 1955);(Clement Schnelker 43912672 born 10 Mar 1872 died 11 Mar 1872) and (William Schnelker 43913226 born 26 Jun 1876 died 27 Dec 1960); there was also a daughter: Cecelia Schnelker 43912619 she was born on 14 May 1879 and died 21 Aug 1879.

Yes, we are related, They're are even some Schlik's in the area too. In my Jr of HS, my parents moved to the country and I finshed school at Woodlan. Funny though, when I asked the Schlink that I was in class with if we might posible be related he told me that his father stated that they weren't related to the Schlinks from Ft. Wayne.... I have since proved otherwise. If I need anything, I'll be sure to drop you a line. I spent several days also at the library during my last visit and will be back in late January or early February.

Magdaline Schnelker
That would be fine if you want to transfer her data, I would be happy to manage it. I was just there visiting Ft. Wayne, and did visit the cemetery while I was there. I couldnt find Magdalines's headstone though, and update my photo library. Magdaline is my great grand aunt. I left to return overseas on 7 December before the first bad weather hit. I will be returning in January for a short visit too. Do you know if the church permits the review of it's burial registry? There are some infants buried there and want to establish the relationship links. Thanks!
