Hello JS, are you on I know there is a lot of misinformation on ancestry but some trees have discrepancy on Benjamin's parentage. Do you concur with William Craig and Barbara Sloper? If you could access some of the trees with a lot of source info, there (I don't know how they'd know) they have death by drowning in Iowa 1840. It seems Barbara didn't remarry until 1849 to William Williams. Also some trees have Benjamin's middle name Franklin which is probably the case but I can't verify. Would love to compare info. thanks.

RE: Benjamin F Craig
Hi, J.S....While I have Craigs in my ancestry, I do not think I am related to Benjamin F. Craig. The information came to me from Findagrave contributor genieresearcher #47587598, whom you will have to ask.
Regards, Richard

RE: William Craig
If he died in 1840 he is not in Oakdale the cemetery started about 1860. You might want to move him to another location. Maybe Davenport City Cemetery.

As you can see, Sarah's tombstone is in two pieces. I found it laying against a tree just to the right of Jennett's tomestone. Barb

RE: Charles Knaak Info
I visited Trinity Cemetery but did not find Charles' headstone. I looked for both Knaak and Jeup, but found none where it should be. That most likely means that his grave doesnt have a headstone. I snapped a couple of shots of the area, where it should be.
Worse news...I went to the Wayne County clerks office hoping to find some marriage or death information. I'm sorry I was wrong before, they charge $11.50 to look for each document (paid, whether or not one is found). The only exception are for marriage records before 1937.
Sorry. I did try.

RE: Charles Knaak Info
I'm sorry I dont have much more to offer. I will look around Charles' burial plot, to see if there are any others.

It's pretty obvious these marriages and deaths most likely took place in Detroit. So you might want to go and search (or hire a researcher) to the Wayne County Clerks office (downtown Detroit). To look and transcribe the information, it's free (except for $10 parking). I know you said you've checked at the state and county level; but the name may be mispelled.
You might want to write a letter to Trinity, and ask them directly if Anna, Peter or Caroline are there. It is of course reasonable to think that they were buried there. (Give them a few weeks to answer.)
Perhaps check to see if there is a Wayne County Genealogy society? They might have more options for you.
Is there an LDS research site, near you? They may be able to offer research suggestions.
Best of luck,

Charles Knaak Info
1900 Federal Census: He was 53 and lived in Detroit with wife Carolina (married abt 1870). He was born in June 1842 and had immigrated from Germany abt 1875. They had five children living with him. Anna was born July 1889.
Caroline was born Oct. 1849 in Germany.

Family tree on Ancestry: Caroline's maiden name was Baille. Anna was born in 1888 in Michigan. She married Peter John Jeup Nov. 22, 1919. And she died in Detroit. She and Peter had five children; of which one may be living.

City Directories on Ancestry: Charles is listed in few city directories (Detroit) in late 1890's. He's listed as a Laborer and lived on 195 Jay Street. His sons Ernest and Paul are also shown at that same address. Ernest was a casket-maker while Paul was clerk.

If you want me to make a pdf and send these documents to you...let me know your email address (write directly to my email address, shown on my profile page).

When you find the date/location of their death, then you might want to find an obit. Also, you can ask a RAOGK volunteer to copy or obtain a death record from Wayne County (

Caroline shows up in the 1910 and 1920 census, living in Detriot. But I didnt find her in the 1930...she may have died between 1920 and 1930. In 1920, she was abt 70 yrs old and lived with Anna and Peter.

Charles Knaak
Trinity Cemetery wrote back; Charles is in Lot 68, Section I. I had also asked about Anna and Caroline, but they didn't list a burial location for them. I assume they weren't interred at Trinity, however I'll look in the area when I go.
Please give me a couple of weeks.

Pater Jeup
Peter Jeup is buried in Section F, Lot 141 at Mt. Elliott Cemetery in Detroit. The Lot is marked by a large monument that contains the name "Campau." His grave is not individually marked within the lot.
The only name that is readable on the monument is Campau. This is interesting because the two people who had the last name of Campau, children, were moved to Mt. Olivet in either Sept. 1903 or 1913. Also listed as buried in Lot 141 is Marie G. Jeup who is also identified by the cemetery as being buried in the "Poor Grounds."
If you will send me an email address I will send you the scan of the lot which I obtained from the cemetery. It locates most of the graves by name. There are currently 11 graves in the lot.
It also contain Anna Langlois and Mary G. Krause.
This is very interesting case. There is Jeup, Krause, Langlois, and Jagenow graves. Nobody named Campau--but the monument is Campau. I will put the photo on Find a Grave.

According to the Superintendent of Mt. Elliott Cemetery, grave locations that contain the word Tier indicate those who have been buried in the "poor section" of the cemetery and have no headstones.

Charles Knaak
I called Trinity Cemetery to find Charles exact burial location. They wont look it up, until I write a letter; it sounds as though it may take them months to get back to me.
If you know his location, let me know. Otherwise, sit tight and we'll get the photo....sometime, when Trinity has time to respond (fall 2011?).

RE: Location?
I wish I could help but I do not live near Detroit. I have however forwarded your request to another Find A Grave contributor who is an active photo request volunteer.

You may want to consider putting a direct email address onto your Find A Grave page.
Good Luck

I have fulfilled some photo requests for you at Mt. Elliott. I have additional information on other family members buried there that you requested photos of that I think will be helpful to you. Please e-mail me at so I can e-mail you the information.

Mary Jeup
No, I am not related to the Jeup family. I take volunteer pictures at Mt. Elliott for Find A Grave and RAGOK Michigan Wayne. I will try to fulfill your request when the snow melts. Currently, we have about 6" on the ground, so it probably will be mid to late April before I can try. If there is a stone for Mary, I will see if it lists a birth date.

RE: Jeup family pics
We are under a winter storm watch right now. It is snowing to beat the band. We had one day when most of the old snow melted. I think this is going to change to ice and sleet so maybe it won't leave so many inches of snow.
