RE: David Boehnlein
Hi Dan,
I submitted edits to link David to Alfred and Lorraine. I also submitted the birth and death location edits that are listed in the obituary. Thanks, Dan.

RE: David Boehnlein
Hi Dan,
Thanks so much. I was very confused. My parents' sides are intersecting again!
Based on what you said, I submitted edits to link Alfred to his parents, Nicholas and Barbara.
There are two memorials for David,13884223, and 139328897. The second one is managed by you. Each has some info for David which the other doesn't have. Whichever one is kept should be linked to Alfred and Lorraine.

RE: Welcome
Wow! You're a wealth of information! I looked at the before and after photos of the cross on your 2X great-grandmother Cecilia's memorial. Looks like you spray-painted the metal silver then added the stainless steel plate. Looks great! There are lots of Cecilia's in my family tree and I worked at Kohler Co. for several years so we have a few things in common! Before I proceed, I have a couple more questions. First, I did more research and found info. online indicating that Mathias Joseph Schmitz's parents should also be buried at Johnsburg. Theodore Schmitz died in 1866 and Anna Gertrude Schmitz died in 1868 (or possibly 1848). I can't find either in the St. John the Baptist cemetery or in any Fond du Lac County cemetery. I did find a Gertrude Schmitz who died in 1867 and is buried at St. John's (memorial #61995383) with no other info. Her stone looks new - not 150 years old - so maybe it was recently added and they couldn't make out the info. on the original? Maybe that grave is really for Anna Gertrude and Theodore? Second, before I do anything to the cross on the grave of Mathias, do I need to get permission from anyone at the church? Who has legal rights after so many years? I'm a descendent but there probably are many of us. Thanks for any more help you can provide!

RE: Welcome
Thanks for my first message and my first memorial! I emailed RJ Korbach about the other Mathias Joseph Schmitz memorial and will let you know what I hear from him. I already shared the good news about finding where Mathias is buried with my aunt and will also let my cousin know as he and his wife went with my aunt and me on an ancestry cemetery tour last Saturday. We went to 7 cemeteries to visit graves of 32 relatives. I hope we can visit the grave of Mathias in the near future. Since there are no markings on his metal cross, I want to see if we can add some identification to his grave. Let me know if you have any ideas about that. Thanks again for all your help!

Thank you, done. I so appreciate your assistance on that and all your Find A Grave work.

Re: Leo C.
The obit was my source. Guess I should delete it, unless you know the correct cemetery ? Thans

No worries. I contribute to general confusion myself, unfortunately.

Hi, Dan,
It appears that the name on the gravestone (Franziska) doesn't agree with the name or gender on the page (Johannes). Also, oddly, the grave pictured for Johannes' linked page is not at all like the one pictured on this one. Help?

What's more, I find from this ( that Johannes Nett was married to Maria Katharina Koenigs. I worry that it might not be the same Johannes Nett, but the siblings' names on mostly agree.

I'm trying to sort out Netts, who are distant relatives, and it's a hornets' nest of Netts (say that 3 times).

Thanks Dan. I was at Lincoln Memorial Cemetery when the video was shot.

RE: Roemers
Thank you so much for doing that. I should have paid better attention when I was there. I still can't figure out how the Schueller's fit into this. I didn't see a headstone for Anna Maria Schueller just for the Roemer's. I will keep on searching until that mystery is solved as well. Thank you kindly for all the help you have given me.

Hi Dan.

I have been doing some research on the Steffes family for a cousin. I am having a problem with Michael and Theodor Steffes. Can you contact me.

You are correct. I did not know the name of Reinhard's first wife (Johann's mother). Thanks!

RE: Roemer
Thank you. I don't know how you do it, that cemetery is hard to walk around. That hill is a pain. Then again I guess I'm not in the shape I should be. I appreciate all of your help.

Dan, I was at the cemetery in Mt. Calvary today and was wondering if you were going there any time soon? I wrote down The dates for Anna Maria and Christopher but think I might have transposed the death dates. If you could would you please write down the dates on Anna's side seeing it is easier to read. I had to get on my hands and knees to feel the dates on Christopher's side because they were so hard to read. If you don't get the chance to do this I will try to come up to Mt. Calvary next summer.
Thank you,

Photo of Alma
I tried to email you the photo of Alma and Caroline through this message system, but had no luck. I don't see any way to attach it and it would not let me paste it either.

Could you send me your email address so I can send it to you via that email address or you can email Judy Mannenbach and ask her to email that photo to you. I sent her the photo yesterday so she now has the scan of it too.

RE: Photos
Are you related to Alma Mannenbach Dreifuerst? Her sister was Caroline Mannenbach Bleuel. Both were born and lived in Fond du Lac County and are buried at F du L county cemeteries. They were the grandchildren of Jacob and Margaretha Steffen. Since your name is the same as Alma's married name, I thought you might be related.

Since I was leaving a public message, for privacy reasons I only used the first name with the last initial. Sorry if that was a problem.


Added by Ty on Sep 14, 2015 5:17 PM

Are you related to Alma D. and her older sister, Caroline B? My husband is a descendant of Jacob and Margaretha S and we have a photograph of Alma and Caroline which looks to be the communion photo of Caroline and possibly Alma's too which was taken at a photography studio.

If these names mean nothing to you, then just disregard this email.

If you would like more information or would like me to send you an email with this photo, just let me know.

Me again! Just found a rather significant error on Bill Brill's gravestone: he's not dead. He's alive and well and living in or near Johnsburg, or maybe Mount Calvary where his sisters live. He put the gravestone up himself, but you've anticipated his demise by -- I hope-- a lot more years.

Floyd was my 2nd cousin, and I found details about his death on the findagrave page at 113566580, the page of a young woman who was killed in the same motorcycle accident in 1978. Perhaps this text could be added to Floydie's page...?

Floyd Brill, Jr., 33, of route 1, Malone, also was killed in a double motorcycle crash on August 13, 1978. Also killed was Joseph Korb, 21, of route 1, St. Cloud. Korb's fiance, Sandra Kay Bernard, 19, of Route 1, Kiel, died in September of injuries sustained as a passenger on his motorcycle. The accident occurred on the Kiel Road in the town of Calumet near Marytown.

By the way, do I know you? Your name is very familiar. I graduated from the school in Marytown in 1964. My brother Joe was two years ahead of me...

Irene Schneider, now of New York City.

Thank you for getting back to me so fast! I have been looking for Anna and Christopher for a very long time. Without your info on the cemetery I would still be looking. As far as I know he was born in 1802 in France. You said he lived to be 87 so that means he must have died in 1889. Stella Simon is there granddaughter. Stella is my 2x great grandmother. She died shortly after the birth of her third child. I noticed you didn't have a photo of her tombstone. I know she has one because I was to the cemetery about 10 years ago. She is buried next to a Haensgen. I forgot which one but can look it up. I so appreciate you and all you do! You are awesome!

Holy cross cemetery
I found the name Anna Mary Roemer that you put on the Holy Cross of Mt. Calvary WI list here on find a grave. You said that she had an unmarked grave. May I ask how you found this info? I think she is my 4x great grandmother. I would love to find where her grave is so that I may visit it.

RE: St Anna Cemetery
I have put up St. Anna Cemetery from a transcript that I had, (whatever wasn't already there) but I don't know how complete the transcript was. I think Calumet County should be pretty much all up, except for people who don't have a stone, or unreadable stones. I have been updating transcripts that were done earlier, and making new ones. I appreciate your work in the Holy Land, and adding obits that I find.
Hope this answers your question.

Both the Billings and FdL newspaper obituaries say he was buried in Holy Cross Cemetery, one specifies the church cemetery. Maybe the capuchins can help you.
