Josef Kolitsch

My name is Klaus Kolitsch and by accident I came across their page at Find My Grave. That's a very mysterious story of Joseph Kolitsch aka George Miller. My father grew up in the neighboring town of Bärringen, the birthplace of Joseph Kolitsch senior. I registered on this portal to communicate with you. There are many descendants in Wisconsin and what information you have on the ancestry of Joseph K.

Many greetings from Germany
Klaus Kolitsch

RE: Anna Lennon Coffey and husband David Daniel Coffey's memorials
FIND A GRAVE will delete duplicate memorials. They go by who created the memorial first.

RE: Eugene Phipps
I hope so too! For years I was out of touch with my Broberg cousins until I found them on Facebook (which surprised me because they are all older than me). It might be worth a shot to check there.

I hope you can connect with your cousins!

RE: Eugene Phipps
I am delighted that my photos have been able to help you! I have been keeping my eyes peeled for the Phipps name and am pleased to tell you that every single Phipps that has a memorial on Find-A-Grave now has a headstone photo.

Happy Hunting!!

You said maybe someday you would get to see Eugene's gravestone photo. That day it today. Please go check out his memorial page. Hugs. Terry

RE: Eugene Phipps
Someday is sooner than you think. I am going out to Lindenwood tomorrow after work to get this photo. I was so delighted to find this out for you at the office today!! I didn't get the photo today because I was working in Section 6 and my husband got cold and wanted to go home when we were done there.

Eugene Phipps
Eugene was disinterred from Lindenwood Cemetery Section 26 ext, lot 4, space B and moved to the same plot as Augusta Nahrwold Mueller & Louise Nahrwold Phipps, section 2, lot 193. I believe that Augusta's and Louise's graves are unmarked but the cemetery office staff did confirm that Eugene was moved there and that his grave is marked.

More on Eugene
I was tramping around Lindenwood Cemetery, section 13, today. This is a very poor section of the cemetery and is right next to section 26 extended, where Eugene was originally laid to rest. Section 26 is also a very poor section. Many of the graves in these sections are unmarked or have very small markers that have worn during the passage of time.

I didn't go to section 26 extended because there is a large and deep culvert between the two sections. When I go to the office next, I will follow up on Eugene.

Moving Eugene
Perhaps the family wanted Eugene's remains moved. I do know of situations where a person was interred far from where his/her family lived and that later, when the family could afford it, they would have the remains moved to a family cemetery.

Eugene Phipps again
My mistake, Eugene was interred at Section 26 Extended, Lot 4, Space B. Even though he was disinterred, I will still look at that location and see if there is a marker or not. Also, I will verify with the office as to Eugene's disinterrment. Perhaps that will yield the current location of Eugene's remains.

I'll do the best I can to find him for you.

Dear Tanya W.

I used the Allen Co. Public Library's search engine for Lindenwood.

It saves me time since I usually end up in the Lindenwood office for 2 hours at a time. I didn't create the memorial, a gentleman named Steve did. What it looks like based on the information that the search engine yielded is that Eugene was interred at Lindenwood in 1995 but disinterred in 1997. Perhaps Steve didn't know this when he created the memorial page. I do have others to photograph at the Bohn Chapel (where Eugene was interred) and I will look there to see if there is a plaque or some sort of marker still there.

Fred Cantieri
Hi Tanya. I see Fred Jorgensen has responded to your request. I also checked on Fred Cantieri at Chief Tecopa Cemetery. Couldn't find a marker of any kind, so I called the gal at the Pahrump Town Office who has the records. She told me that Fred is definitely there in the location you provided, but that no marker or headstone was ever purchased or placed. I took a photo of the grave, but all there is is just winter-browned grass. Let me know if you want the photo. Peggy Meek

Fred Cantieri
Hi Tanya,
In response to your photo request, we did a survey of the cemetery a few years ago and there was no headstone for Mr. Cantieri at that time. As soon as I can, I will check his site again and if there is one, I will post it.

RE: Diedrick N. Nahrwold
oops...I thought I managed the memorial...will send the info to the manager

I noticed that his section said 2 AG; it is actually Q AG; the transcribers mistook the upper case Q as a 2; the AG means "accommodating ground," which means a free burial. The article said he might have lost his job because he was in a bar. Can you imagine losing ones' job because you were in a bar???

RE: Diedrick N. Nahrwold
I don't have access to his obituary online. The Ft Wayne library would have it on microfilm. I will put a link on Diedrick's memorial.

As a side note, as a matter of courtesy, it is preferred that when posting a pic to a memorial (like you did with Dennis'), it is protocol to ask the person who originally posted it to post it, as it was their work. Does that make sense?

Don't worry about it; just wanted to let you know.

Thanks! I'll make the link now.

RE: Diedrick N. Nahrwold
the website is They only go up to about 1922. They could have very recent ones, too, but there is a big gap.

RE: Diedrick N. Nahrwold
I can only imagine how heart rendering that had to be for everybody involved! I have not looked for the memorial of his friend. If you have found it and send me the link, I can make a link on his memorial to his friend.
Thank you for the kind words,

Your response about Jackie and Ralph
I also have recently found find a grave. I would like to keep my family together,(as we are family). Jackie and Ralph have my Aunts memorial (my fathers sister). I spent so many precious days with them when I was young, I loved my Aunt Dearly. Jackie and Ralph will NOT transfer the memorial. If you notice on their bio. they have over 100,000 memorials, and they also mention that very few are their family. I have much information about my aunt to add, but why should I type it all out, send it to them, and maybe they will retype it or maybe they will ignore it. I don't really want to waste the time going through all that, when I could type it and add it and it be done. (besides the fact that they could make errors in transcribing the info I send them)

Do you have any ideas on what I could do about this situation?

Thank you for your time and help. you can send me a personal email if you wish.

I noticed on a post that you asked if the contributor needed copies of documents to prove your info, etc.

Per Find A Grave admin, it is not a requirement and contributors cannot require it.

Just thought I'd let you know.

RE: Messages to Jackie and Ralph
Thank you for your idea, Tanya. Fortunately for me, mine was a misunderstanding in my request. But Unfortunately it did take quite a long time to figure out. The findagrave administrators replied to me and had me try one more time and it worked (I am sure they dropped her a note as well). Everyone else I have given updates for and requests are all very helpful. I did consider making my grandfather's memorial for a little while because as you can see his is quite honorable. But like I said, luckily we had fixed our misunderstanding a few days ago. Good luck in the future and I will hope we all have better luck and easy time of management. :)

RE: John's grave photo-Thank you!
A burial site remains a burial site with or without a grave marker. It makes no difference to me if the grave is marked or not.

During the 1st half of the 1900's it was not uncommon for many graves to go unmarked. We had the great depression and many others never had life insurance to cover the cost of a grave marker.

As always, glad I could help!

And you're most welcome.

RE: Thomas J Coffey
No, I'm not related to the Thomas J Coffey, whose memorial I set up. I have a lot of connections in a number of states & am always checking to see if someone, for whom I have a lot of info, has a memorial & if they don't, then I'll create one when I have the time. Such was the case with Mr Coffey.
