Re: Bradon memorials

Just wanted to say, thank you so much for sponsoring my babies memorials, what a wonderful surprise. This has been a long 5 weeks, since my Mike passed. And I know he would have been grateful too. Thank you again for your kindness, much appreciated.

Blessings to you,

Bo and Sandra were my parishioners when I was pastor of St. Joseph Church in Madison. I knew them well. I knew Bob but not as well as Bo. Msgr. Al Humbrecht is also a great friend.

Carolyn, I do not know him, I am just a recorder of cemeteries for Helen McKeown who is a Ohio County Historian. Anita Austill is also a recorder. If you would like me to transfer this memorial to you, I would be happy to. Just send me the membership number of who ever wants to be responsible.

RE: Herman Lee South. Headstone
Not a problem, I'm very glad I could help. I just uploaded your other request for Kittie South, who is buried with her husband(?) Herman (1866-1932) Those are the only South markers that I saw, though I was only looking for those two. I live just a few miles away on Hwy 70 and I am currently in the process of cleaning another old cemetery right down the road from the Corlew cemetery. I might have a chance this afternoon to run by there, and I will look for other South's.

RE: Donald Taylor Denton. Forest Lawn
You are asking me to transfer a couple of Denton memorials to your care, and that is not a problem. However, you need to go to each of those memorials and in the right hand corner just below the name at the top of the memorial, there is an EDIT tab. Click on it and then go down to the --Suggest any other correction or addition--line and click on it. That will pull up a box in which you can sent me a message, asking for the transfer AND typing in your Find A Grave member ID #.

When I'm contacted with that message, the transfer will be made.

I was blown away this morning to see the email stating that you've sponsored the page of my grandfather. It's so kind of you.

I really appreciate it. You've made my day and my week!

RE: Thank You.
Hello Carolyn -

Always good to hear from you. And thanks for liking the
music I post on my page. I am a music lover so you never
know what will show up on my page. :-) My son's
brother-in-law lives outside Nashville and my brother is in
radio. So music is in our blood.
The weather here tonight is beautiful but hot. We could use
some rain, though. Looking forward to cooler weather! I
love Autumn - my favorite time of year.
Hope all is well with you and your family. I think of you often
also and am so glad you sent me the message. I'm just
sitting here listening to music all by my lonesome self. Glad
someone else is up at this late hour of the night!

Have a blessed Sunday, my friend. Hope the weather there
doesn't get too bad.

Love and hugs, Jean Ann

RE: Stemme
Carolyn: In last message: "On the 1880 Census Ferdinand has a daughter Augusta listed as age 8 b.1872 MO. She must be named after her mother. And, her mother must have died before the 1880 census. ^*[Your Comment] Note: This is confusing. [My comment] Notice when Ferdinand Stemme and America Copeland were married 1879. And now notice the birth note listed on the 1880 Census for Augusta b.1872 MO. She is not America's daughter. She is the 1st wife Augusta's daughter. When Augusta arrived in America she was with her 3 children - Lena, Marie, and Alwin - all born in Germany. After she arrived in Missouri, she must have had another daughter named Augusta, named after her, in 1872. This must have been her last child because she must have died before 1880 and after 1872. I hope I'm explaining this correctly to you.
Thanks, Shirley :)

Ferdinand Andreas Stemme
I just looked the census and immigration records for Ferdinand Andreas Stemme and his family. It looks as though Ferdinand traveled with his oldest son Ferdinand Jr. first to America. Then his 1st wife Augusta age 35 traveled later with their next 3 children Lina/Lena 9, Marie 5, and Alwin 4. On the 1880 Census Ferdinand has a daughter Augusta listed as age 8 b.1872 MO. She must be named after her mother. And, her mother must have died before the 1880 census. Ferdinand is listed as married on the 1880 Census to 2nd wife America Copeland. They married on Nov 4, 1879 in Iron Co MO which the census shows that location. Ferdinand dies 1903, so he is not on the 1910 or 1920 census, but America is shown as a widow living with her children. Is this correct information?
Thanks, Shirley :)

RE: Armina Lodge Cemetery - St. Louis MO
According to a burial list for Arminia Lodge Cemetery from the St. Louis Genealogical Society's file marked 'ARMINIA', your ancestor, Andr. Ferdinand Stemme is listed as b. July 2, 1830 d. June 14, 1903. Birthplace German.

This burial listing has a notification marked with a "*" indicating that the information for most of the individuals buried in this cemetery on this burial list came from St. John's United Church of Christ Death Records in St. Louis, MO. Please let me know if the information for your ancestor is correct.

Since I've gone over this information from the file marked 'ARMINIA', I've found some mistakes. I'm not sure if the person who put the list together made the mistake or the death records at St. John's United Church of Christ were a bit off with the information. The death records at St. John were in German so someone translated all of it. I know sometimes the death record will be incorrect as to the burial place/cemetery.

Hopefully by the time I finish this project updating the burial listing for Arminia, it will be complete and I will make sure has every single name listed. Knowing if there are tombstones for each and every name will be difficult to figure out though. It's a shame that this could happen and no county or city or person wanted to be responsible for this cemetery when Highway 141 was installed. An article did state that someone tried to find a 'living' relative of members of the Arminia Lodge for this cemetery, but could not. Looking at the map I have and the area where Arminia is located, I can plainly see that half or a quarter of Arminia Cemetery has been taken for this highway. But to verify that would be impossible.

Thanks, Shirley :)
