Thanks for the heads up on the duplicate memorial. I deleted mine.

He used the church record books and the census records. Perhaps you could locate a family member of his? He had a son Peter I recall. Dr. died at Rocky Knoll near Plymouth, WI. Perhaps his obit would be of value in locating his family. How about asking Steffan relatives in the Johnsburg area if they know anything or have copies of his work? Mrs. Steffan did not approve of his hobby if that is important to know.

Some years ago, Dr. Lloyd Steffan of Plymouth did extensive work on the families of the Johnsburg Catholic Church. Heaven knows where the records are but it was so well done!

So, you wish to add my bio to your bio....hmmm, not sure this would please my husband!
Sorry, for the quip! Devil made me do it!
Getting serious.
I added a note to my memorial indicating it was a memorial not a burial but I feel it should "be there" as it is.
When I put things on-line, I feel it is for anyone to use so have at it but credit is always nice. Those of us that do the original work do it "for the good of the cause" and when others appreciate it, it sure feels good so, I thank you for your kind words! It is good to see your work on the "Holyland" burials! Many thanks!

Johann Stumpf
Do you have more information on Johann Stumpf, memorial #117852237 ? I'm trying to see if this is the husband of Elisabeth Lohr (or Loehr), memorial #46910296. I show her husband Johannes Stumpf died in Fon du Lac County, but buried at Mount Calvary in 1845.

Kindest Regards,
Harriet Schroeder Boshaw

I have added Anna Schneider (148432604) to St. John the Baptist Cemetery, from info in the obit. Thought you might want for your records, unless you think she is not here.

Delphine O. Flesch Diedrich
Hi Dan,
I created memorial #147447998 for Delphine and I linked her to her husband, Leonard Diedrich, memorial #137338731 which you created. I thought you might like to put the headstone photo that you put on Leonard's memorial on Delphine's memorial too so that you would get posting credit.

Thank you for the photo for Sister Frumentia. We thought we had figured out who was at Holy Cross and who was at Mount Carmel! Annie

Thanks so much Dan. Your promptness and cooperation is appreciated. I've let Annie know to move the memorial.

RE: Sr. M Framentia Wagner
Thanks Dan, that would be much appreciated. Hopefully you'll be able to find a tombstone for her.

Yes, Mt Carmel Cemetery is at the edge of the road in front of the building. There was a for sale sign when we were there. I posted a photo on the main cemetery page.
I bet the sign is still there.

I'll let the other contributor know.

RE: Schmitt
Hi Dan, It's great to hear from you. Sounds like you have been keeping busy. I have not done much the past year in the way of research, but there was a big Dreifurst reunion in August, and I was able to make a new contact. I didn't get to attend the reunion because I found out about it at the last minute. I have some new photos to send...I meant to get them out in my Christmas cards, but am really behind this year. I will send details in the card. I am hoping to be able to spend more time on genealogy this next year. Wishing you the happiest of New Years in 2015, and hope you had a great Christmas with family and friends. I will try to get photos to you soon. Take Care.

Anna Barbara Steffes
Hi Dan
Thanks for the transfer of Anna Barbara Peters Steffes memorial. I have two questions. One is about the cemetery records that you have or found listing her age, date of death and date of burial. Is that something on-line somewhere or do you have a copy of those records that perhaps you can send me?

Also, you listed a very specific date of birth for her when you created the memorial. Where did you get that? It does seem to generally match up with the cemetery record, but not the specific month and day.

Saint John the Baptist Cemetery - Johnsburg, WI
I am wondering if you might be able to find the burials of Johann Miesen (1808-1891)and his wife, Maria Magdalena Weidum (1812-1880).

RE: Anton Olig
Hi Dan,
I am a descendant of the Schmitt/Olig family-- that's how I came across the Olig memorials. My great grandmother was Paulina Schmitt. I had been in touch a (long) while ago with Brenda Brdicko, and we had exchanged information, since our great grandmothers were sisters. Looking forward to seeing all your entries for Johnsburg.

Feldner Family
Hi Dan,
I was working on my Feldner family tree and there are a lot of Feldners out there who seem like they should be linked. One of the stumbling blocks to this is that the original immigrant couple, Peter and Gertrude Feldner, do not have memorials created for them. I have birth information for them but nothing on their deaths or burials. Both were born in about 1804 and they lived in Marshfield Township in Fond du Lac County. Their children are Margaretha Feldner Steffen, memorial #79698820, and, I believe, Maria Gertruda Feldner Salchert, memorial #90239037, and Sgt Joseph Feldner, memorial #108279064. They also had at least one more son, John P. Feldner who doesn't have a memorial. (However, some of his children do have memorials.) Those are the four children who came to the US. There may be more in Germany.
Do you have any info on the burial locations of Peter and Gertrude?
You can reply to my personal email if it is easier.
Thanks for your help.

RE: Peter Entringer
They cleaned up the battle fields as you know after the war. There are over 860 unknowns in Cold Harbor. Now and then they still find them when the build roads and houses around Cold Harbor. I would think he is there as an unknown. That is a new one for me about the tin foil. Got to try that myself. I'll pass it on thanks.

RE: Boehnlein Stone
If you are ever at St. Mary's, give me a call and I can come and show you.
Or, if you go to the following site:
You can find the map and data for St. Mary's Cemetery. In the data it will tell you the location. For example: Andrew Boehnlein is buried in South Section, Row 10, Lot 159 Site 3.
We now have the rows marked by a small square stone (next to the driveway) every 5 or so rows. To find the Boehnlein gravesite, just go to the South Section and find Row 10. It'll be in that row. You really don't need the Lot or Site #'s.
