Since you took over maintenance of his memorial, I suspect you may be related. I think he may be brother of John who is buried same cemetery, and related to Mary Cook who married first Gibson, then Storms, then Stillwell. If you can give me more info, I'd appreciate it - I have some to exchange and have just recently gone back to looking into the Cook connection.

Mr. Fay Schlotfeldt
Seafert - Sievert - Weaver Cem
Thank you so much for managing the Memorials for brothers FRED "SEAVERT (# 13169798)and ERNEST C. SIEVERT #13169804) in Weaver Cemetery. They are my Great Granduncles on my Mother's side. I have just posted some photos, with captions, to their sites.
Their other brother, my Gt. Grandfather, was HENRY SIEVERT, born Mechlenburg, Germany in 1833.
He and wife, Caroline Zarnt, were the parent's of my Grandmother, ERNESTINE SIEVERT DENKER. (My mother was daughter SELMA DENKER SCHLOTFELDT)
Grandma Ernestine, their niece, was deeded a piece of Frederick's land at Nettleton in 1898
by Fred's widow, Margaret, brother Ernest & wife and sister, Wilhelmeina Meine of LaGrange, Illinois. Grandma collected rents on the land for some years. I'm sure it was lost to taxes after her death in 1908 or before. I have posted the first page of that deed and my post the signature page to Ernest's site. The different spellings taken by immigrants was not unusual as many documents were heard phonetically by clerks.
My mother treasured the copy of her Mother's deed for sentimental reasons. We had not been able to located any of the signers. A Google search led me indirectly here. Thank you so much.
If you want to post any of this to Fred and Ernest's bio, it would be nice. I don't believe the other's have descendants to look for them.
Fay Ernest Schlotfeldt, Memphis. (At my age, I don't think taking over management would be good. :-)
