RE: John Randolph Jewett, Phillips Cemetery
In the local history room here in Rockford there is a picture frame with 90 or so photos. They are of most of the men that belonged to the Early Settlers Society here in Winnebago County. Last Spring I photographed those photos and put them on Find A Grave. That is where the photo of Mr. Jewett comes from. I did minimal research to ID and match the photos. If there is a bio on Mr. Jewett around I do not know of it although it is possible. Sorry I cannot help you further.

RE: John Randolph Jewett, Phillips Cemetery
I am sorry I cannot read it all either. I will be happy to transfer this memorial to you for updating if you would like.
Next time we are in the area, I will try to get a better picture for you.

Frederick Heinrich Wilhelm Haake
Happy to send you the information on Annette Davies.

Now wonder if you know who the father and mother of Frederick Heinrich Haake were? Also what is our connection to Jobst and Anna Marie (Stuebe) Haake.

I have wedding pictures for Herman Henry & Eleanora (Doehring) Haake who were married May 24, 1909. But I don't know their connection.

Also have a wedding picture for Fred and Anna (Haake) Tegeler taken Sep 25, 1913.

Hope you might be able to shed some light on these people. Bev

RE: Photos from Indiantown Gap National
Hi Ruth,

You're very welcome. Glad we could help. As far as the duplicate memorials....the person who created the memorial and knew what cemetery she was buried in is the one who gets to keep the memorial. At least that was my understanding as to how this works.

Have a good weekend.

RE: Evelyn Tiemann
The cemetery does list Evelyn as being buried there.Her husband has a temporary marker that was never replaced with a stone. I suspect Evelyn's was destroyed by lawn mowers. I have seen other temporary markers laying in pieces around the cemetery. The son Franklin is buried there as well and has a good stone marker. I suspect Evelyn is buried between son and husband.

Lewis Duke Jr.
You're welcome. I found the date in a CA death record & entered it into ancestry before it found the record also.

Thank you for all the work you've done -- it's helping me get a much better idea of my Duke roots. Lewis & Fannie are 3x grandparents.

Hi, I forgot if I told you but, I double checked with St. Peter and Paul Church and Conrad is indeed interred there.

Baby 2 Stevens
Mildred and Baby Stevens are two different people. However, the person who added the photos to both put the same photo on both entries. I don't know why. I didn't add the photos so I couldn't tell you. You may want to contact the person who added the photos.

Hi Ruth,

I spent two days photograhing Sandy Creek Cemetery, I uploaded every headstone I could make out. There are a few funeral home markers and a few headstones that are not readable. His is one that should fall under the funeral home markers, since he died in 2009. You may have to contact the Church to see what plot number, he is. If they can tell you that and who is on either side of him, I would go look again. Do you have a copy of the death cert., perhaps it has a plot #. Or perhaps Charlet. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Ruth did the sexton tell you if any of the Blanchards graves were unmarked because I only have a photo for Bertie. It is possible I missed them when I stopped for the day and maybe forgot where I left off when I went back. I think it's add the are all in a Blanchard plot with only one Blanchard marker. If you talk to the sexton again ask him who is buried in the lot and if possible can he tell you if the graves are marked. I have badgered his three times this week so I am hesitant to call him again right now. Let me know because I want to go back and get the rest of them if we can find out if the graves have markers.

Hi Bertie Blanchard is the only Blanchard I have a photo for in Monongahela. Bertie E. Blanchard 1873-1921. Is that the one you are looking for?

It is a fireman's helmet. It is a marker for members of the New Bloomfield Fire Department.

RE: Martin Burkepile gravestone
You're very welcome, Ruth Ellen. By all means, use the photo on ancestry. The area where Martin is buried is all "charity" single graves. His is one of the few with a marker of any kind.

Annie Burkepile
This is very puzzling. Most of the photos I posted for Newport Cemetery were not showing up. So I dug out the original files and processed them to re-post them. Tonight all the original photos are showing up just fine. Take a look and see if you are able to view Annie's photo now.

RE: Henry Wisner and William Gilmour at SandRidge
I just talked to the cemetery record keeper over the phone. He also checked by dates, etc. We did not go over the various spellings, but I have his phone if someone wants to call him direct and discuss. He is very familiar with the gravesites. He said many of the very old gravesites do not have markers or headstones. (If you want his name and phone number, send me a private email via and I will respond.)

RE: Most children
Ruth, These Bartels were from the Tecumseh, Nebraska area, there are a LOT of Bartels so I'm not surprised if you haven't heard of them. I just did some links for a family that lost 4 little ones all in the year 1888, they were all in the same cemetery though. Luella

RE: Thank you!!
Ruth, thank you very much. I had gotten some info from Karen Rowe's site. I wonder why she took it down. I tried to find it a few weeks ago and didn't find it. As soon as I have time to get into that side of my family I will see if I still need what I what looking for when I looked for her site. Johann would have been a brother to my great grandfather. Again, I do appreciate all your help.

RE: Bohlmeyer photo request
I think that Pleasant View must have been a neighborhood cemetery and people started using either Bower, Richland or the church cemetery a mile west. I know the Frost family moved to Lancaster County and I found at least one other family who moved out of the area, so that explains why there were one family member buried there. I think this is the only cemetery I've found in the county that doesn't have a town, church or family connected to it, it's just random people buried there.

I think if you contact one of the local funeral homes they will sell you a metal marker. If the Hebron funeral home that did her funeral is still in business it might be best to get it from them, and they may sell it for less if they handled her arrangements. I've seen just the flat part of the funeral home markers set in a simple concrete base, I guess to keep it from getting hit by the mowers.

RE: Bohlmeyer photo request
That cemetery is the Pleasant View Cemetery. It was the first cemetery I ever photographed. It should be here on Find A Grave as well as my website. When I went the grass was waist high and the stones were in bad shape, and I about broke my leg in a hidden badger hole. It looks like it gets mowed more regularly now.

The church named in the Bohlmeyer obits sounds like the one I was at today, as it is 7 miles north of Jansen. There is the Cub Creek St Paul's Evangelical church & cemetery 4 miles north of Jansen, and the cemetery where the Emanuel Evangelical church used to be, which is 2 miles east of Peace Lutheran, but I don't find any Bohlmeyers at either of them. I'll check the directory again and look through the photos and see if they were missed on the directory. I think the directory noted burials without a stone but I'll have to check again.

I've had the same problem here with people putting the wrong burials in a cemetery. Some how the Immanuel Lutheran Cemetery at Daykin keeps getting mistaken for the one at Plymouth.

RE: PS -
And . . . I thank you for your kind words. It means a lot to me.

I asked again today about LeVerne and they said he was not there . . . at least under that name; thank you for confirming which name he was using. I will go ahead and post the same 'area' photo to his memorial.

Now, as for the Parkinsons -- not only are they both there, but they are in the Del Prado Mausoluem and they both have nameplates. The employee I spoke with a few days ago was mistaken. I was so excited to find them. I put some silk flowers in their vases. Their crypts are up at the top of the wall and so the nameplates are hard to visualize in the 'area' photo but I will explain in the photo caption which ones are theirs. I will be posting the photos momentarily.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you here in Inglewood.
