I just wanted to forward the source information of the update requested I had sent to you earlier.

“Valentine Erbes (1843) and his wife Katharine (Deichmiller), initially farmed the home place before purchasing their own homestead in southwestern Dimmick Township. There they were the parents of twelve children. Valentine and the younger children moved to Peru’s Tenth Street after Katherine’s death.”
“Mendota Area German Pioneer Families” Arthur L. Ladenburger 2003, p. 252.

For your information.

Malanda Ferry Raspiller
Hello! I am very excited to find these Raspiller entries! her daughter Christine is my great great grandmother and I was never able to find information about her parents and so on. I was curious if you had any information or suggestions on where to look. Her headstone only shows her married name of Raspiller and I was wondering how you came across her maiden name of Ferry?

Thank you very much for the transfers! Your work and generosity is certainly appreciated.

The Noah Hackman I mentioned in my message below is memorial number 53928086. Also, you added a picture for Elizabeth Whitmer Nisley (memorial 53927459). May I have permission to use the photo for personal / family use so long as I give proper attribution?

Hello cousin[?],

I was wondering how you are related to Noah (1815 - 1887) and Nancy (Nisely) Hackman (1834 - 1910). They are my 4th great grandparents. I am descended from their son Harmon and grandson Charles.

Headstone Details
In Section 25 Lot 232 Grave 1
There is a obelisk marker for the Cejka Family
I was there in 2000 visiting - I live in California - and was using an old 35 mm film camera. Thought I took good photos, but when they were developed I was unable to read the inscriptions on the marker.
Any possible way on your next visit you could photograph the various inscriptions and photo plaques?
Just e-mail to me?
It would be appreciated very much
