Feldman photo
Thank you so very very much for the photos of the gravestones of John & Elizabeth FELDMAN in the Layton Twp. Cemetery.

Elizabeth Westfall Feldman was a sister of my husband's Gr Gr Grandfather. We were in the area in 2002 but did not know at that time that the name FELDMAN figured into the family.

Thanks again,
Phoenix, AZ

RE: Heinrich Henry Burmeister
Karen, most memorials I add are relatives, and those that are not so close (like Hank's parents), or not at all related I want to respect and make sure their family can have them. I saw the pic of Hank's parents and thought nice people, and did not want them to be forgotten. I do not know where some of these people are buried, and all I know is they exist and are somewhere in Iowa and can not and should not be forgotten. If I lived in Iowa I would go to Graceland and finish that cemetery. There are people who take all the cemetery pics and when you ask for a transfer they argue or ignore you. I do not like that at all. If I know they existed and they died in Iowa I am going to add them to F A G even If I do not which cemetery, so people can add their pics of the tombstones to the memorials I add. In 1999 my grandpa and I went to many cemeteries in Iowa for 2 days looking at relatives stones. The pics I took were ruined and I was not paying very much attention to where we were and did not take notes. I regret that, and now everyone that has any information is dead.

I was 39 when we went to the graves and now I am 53, I should have paid better attention to what we were doing. Take care Cindy

RE: Heinrich Henry Burmeister
Karen, I transferred Heinrich Henry Burmeister, to you. When I was a kid I remember his son Henry who was married to my Grandpa's sister Anna. Henry and Anna were very nice and I miss them. I was going to make a memorial for Heinrich's wife, but you can do that. I had only had 1 picture of them I never met them and did not know much about them except knowing Henry from family get togethers in Iowa.

I have not been to Iowa since 2000. My grandparents are both dead and buried in Oakland. Do you call Henry Hank? Was your grandpa a farmer my grandma had their picture and I would look at it and thought Heinrich was from Germany? All these people came from Germany in the late 1880's and came to Iowa to farm. I always thought that was odd, why leave Germany and come to Iowa for some reason I keep thinking about it why did they do it?. Take Care Cindy
I would love any information you have about them. I hope you enjoy living in Iowa I miss it I am in WA state its beautiful here but it is not pottawattamie county. I am glad you contacted me and would like to hear from you again.

RE: William W. Whipple
I'm not certain. Just assumed he was buried at Lakeview since there was room for him in the cemetery plot and his name is on the records. But I'll change it to say we are not certain if he is buried there.

Adams county, Wisconsin, is not without her full quota of intelligent and enterprising farmers, and foremost among those of New Haven township stands the gentleman whose name introduces these paragraphs. He has not engaged in that calling many years, but has steadily pushed himself to the front and is recognized as one of the rising young men of his community. He is a member of one of the leading families of Adams County, and at present resides on the Snyder homestead, and aside from his farming, devotes a share of time to teaching. Mr. Snyder was born in Kilbourn, Wisconsin, April 29, 1867, the son of Alfred and Jane (Whipple) Snyder. The great-Grandfather of our subject came from Germany and settled in NY, and the grandfather, George Snyder, moved to Bradford, PA, where he died, his wife, Caroline Snyder, passing away in NY. Our subjects' father, Alfred Snyder, was born in Sardinia, Erie county, NY, 19 Sept 1833, and died in the town of New Haven, Adams County, WI 3 Jun 1886. He lived some years in PA and came to WI about 1854, locating at Stevens Point, where he was engaged in lumbering, and also had more or less logging contracts. He later lived in Marathon county, and in 1863 moved to Adams county. He enlisted in Battery F, First Wisconsin Heavy Artillery 19 Aug 1864, and on account of disability was discharged 23 Feb 1865, after he had spent some time in Fort Lyon hospital. After the war he was employed in operating a ferry on the Wisconsin river at Kilbourn and in 1874 he purchased a farm in section 16, New Haven township, Adams County, where he resided until his death. He cleared most of the land and made improvements, and left the farm to his heirs at his death. He had filled the principal offices in his township, and for a time was under sheriff of Adams county. He took an active part in all matters pertaining to the welfare of his community, and attended numerous conventions. He was a Republican in political faith and worked zealously for his party. He was a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, and John Gillespie Post, G. A. R., at Kilbourn. His marriage to Jane E. Whipple, the mother of our subject, occurred 28 Jan 1856. Mrs. Snyder was the daughter of Samuel and Marcy (Aldrich) Whipple, the father of Welch lineage, and both natives of VT. Her father settled in Adams County, WI, in 1854, and died 8 Jun 1867, aged 70 years. Her mother died in PA, in 1843, aged 44 years. Mrs. Snyder is the mother of three sons, Charles L., a resident of New Haven township; Frank L. died in 1866, aged two years; and Willis E., our subject.
W. E. Snyder attended the public schools of his native place and in 1894 completed a course in the Capital City Commercial College, at Des Moines, Iowa. He taught school for several years, and for a time was employed in a store at Victor, CO. Since 1896 he has resided on the homestead farm in New Haven township, Adams county, and the estate bears evidence of prosperous management and care. He also spends a portion of his time as an instructor in the public schools.
Mr. Snyder was married 14 Sept 1892, to Beulah Powers, daughter of Oscar and Louise (Rider) Powers, and a native of Adams county, WI. The father of Mrs. Snyder died in Canada, and her mother resides in Big Springs, WI. Two children have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Snyder; Marjorie and Wesley Howard. Both our subject and wife are members of the Congregational church at Big Springs, and Mr. Snyder holds membership in Hustler Camp, Modern Woodmen of America, and is treasurer of the local lodge. In political sentiment he is a Republican and stands firmly for the principles of his party. He is awake to the needs of his community, and is one of the public-spirited men of New Haven township.
