RE: Mountain View Cemetery
The link you gave me is not in Mountain View but a James M Wilson in Mesquite Cemetery in Texas.

Virtual Cemetery -- check the FAQ and it will explain how to set them up.

As for Mountain View, I only took photos there.

You would be best to request a transfer of the memorial, and add info and request a photo, hopefully someone will be able to help you.

Re: Bernard Johnson
Hi-- So you're certain Bernard "normalized" his name, changing it to Johnson from Jankowski? (and they probably mean the same thing anyway...)

RE: re: Coffey
Hi Tanya. I can create the memorials and then transfer them to you if they are your relatives. Maybe that would be easier?

Feel free to use Elwood Carpenter’s grave marker photo and any other photos of mine. Thanks for asking.

re: Coffey
Hi Tanya. I remember seeing Coffey on the request list. I was in Section E and found a lot of Coffeys that I photographed. I am wondering if they are all related and if you are interested in them and will create a memorial:

Frank 9/13/1869-9/17/1960
Susan 1/1/1876-9/10/1955
George 1895-1940

3 on one stone:
Eugene 1908-1985
Josephine 1911-1969
Frank W. 1935-1997

3 on one stone:
Harold 1910-1982
Baby Robert 5/22/1943-5/26
Wanda 1913-2008

Let me know. Have a great day.

RE: David Coffey grave photo
Hi! I am not related. While photographing other Coffey graves at this cemetery I saw the David Coffey grave. The coloring of the first photos posted is way off, and it looks like it is wet. It also seemed strange that they posted two photos as one. So I posted a more correct photo. I hope you have a great holiday tomorrow! Ace

RE: Van Cleef Home
Thanks Tanya.

Are you aware that I wrote a couple books on our Van Cleave/Cleve/Cleef/et al family?
Volume I, from Jan Van Cleef to Aaron Van Cleave, the various New England states branches.
Volume II, from Aaron to the present, the Kentucky branches.
Volume III, my David Van Cleave branch.
Volume IV, an addendium to volume II and III.
Volume V, an addendium to all the previous volumes.

Volumes I, III and IV are out of print.
Volume V, has yet to be printed.
Volume II, I still have copies of.

Hi Tanya,

Email membership to the family site you're creating would be fine with me. There is another Van Cleave site:*

MyFamily ( is being closed and this Van Cleave site is being transfered to another hoste, and I think the address is:

More on that later. But take a look at the original MyFamily Van Cleave site before it is closed on September 1st.

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

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.

Eugene Phipps
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.
