Salem Hgts. Cemetery suggestion
It was back in Jan when you suggested to me that the Sr. Collette in Salem Hgts might be who I was looking for. Several months went by before I had a chance to check it out. Lo and behold, it was her!!! Several more months go by and I am just getting around to thanking you. THANK-YOU VERY MUCH!! A brick wall just crumbled.

May name is Dave Barga. Just as an FYI, I used the photo of Anton and Elizabeth Eilerman for my tree on giving you the proper credit. Anton's father, John Henry, was my 2nd great grand uncle.

Puthoff @ StL Clavary pt 2
As a point of interest:
I just noticed that you that Dred Scott's headstone is in the background. The tree that in before the street the light grey stone on the other side of the street just to the left is Dred's.
See number 19.

Puthoff @ StL Clavary pt 2
I got the rest on, I will work on the tall monument. That will be interesting. The Foil was ok, but still needs something more.

Happy Hunting

RE: Osgood Photos
You are welcome. This cemetery is easy for me because it is my home church cemetery and most of my recent ancestors are buried here. I happened to be meeting my 3 sisters at one of their homes in Versailles to go to Michigan to visit our brother so I scheduled another day to get these pictures done. I have been wanting to do this forever! I have many more to take of cemeteries in the surrounding communities sometime.

Dr. Alois Willke
Thanks so much for the reference to Dr. Willke. I added it to the memorial page just as you had noted. It gives me a clue to a mystery in my family tree - my mother (who is related to the Willke's) mentioned a relative who was a nun at the convent at Mary Stein. I haven't been able to track her down. She went by "Sister Coletta" and was born abt 1875.

Kathrina Striecker
Hi. I got your email regarding Kathrina (111442162) and wrote back but the email bounced back to me.

So I'll let you know what I wrote here, in case you didn't get the email.

I checked the cemetery book I got her information from and it is the same as I have on her memorial. The cemetery book was compiled in 1992 and I have seen some mistakes in it compared to the memorials on find a grave. In the book, her name is listed between "R. Meyer (no date)" and "W. Meyer (no date)". I'm not sure if that is how they are buried in the cemetery or not. Unfortunately, this book does not have the burials listed by row or plot.

Hope this helps you. If you have her photo, and if you think it is right, you can add the photo. Thank you.

RE: Drees Graves
Yes, I can expound. The gravesite at location Row 9, Grave 280 contains a double grave of twins who died within 10 days of each other. They are Anna Elisabeth Drees (born July 04, 1874 and died January 08, 1875 - memorial# 102557783), and her sister Maria Agnes Drees (born July 04, 1874 and died January 18, 1875 - memorial# 101701734). On your memorial, you have Maria Anna Drees (born Jan 06, 1802 and died February 10, 1874 - memorial# 101701837), who is buried in location Row 9, Grave 284 as one of the two inhabitants of the double grave at location Row 9, Grave 280. I was saying that you can see on the double grave that the death dates are Jan 08 and Jan 18, as the church records indicate for the twins. The photo that I took at location 284 was a broken stone, not a double stone. See if what I am saying makes sense.

Maria Anna Drees (1802-1874)
Dear Chronicler,

I believe the photos you have posted for Maria Anna Drees are actually for 2 other Drees girls, Anna Elizabeth and Maria Agnes Drees. They appear to be twins who died within 10 days of each other. If you look at the names and death dates, they align with what St. Augustine's has for the twins. Also, that location is Row 9, Grave 280.

I was about to upload the "stone" at Row 9, Grave 284 and found your photos already posted. Sadly, the stone for 284 is just a broken base.

Mary Berting
Dear Chronicler,

I had this one still on my hard drive from when I went up to Minster in August. I have been too busy to continue with uploading the photos. Sadly, this is all that is left of Mary Berting's stone. Hers, and the one next to her (Eliz Berting), are both broken and gone.

Thank you for the photos of Cecelia and Peter Jacobs! I appreciate the time you took to get them!

This is a new grave from just a few months ago. There is no stone placed as her marker yet. You may want to request it again at a later date. I hope this helps your search.

RE: Senger Sommer Horstman Photos
Using the Old Cemetery layout and Occupants pdf supplied by St. Augustine's, I made an excel chart of all of the graves in the old section (80 page Excel chart). Yesterday I started the process of photographing. I got 9 rows done so far. Check back with me in about 2 years!

RE: Puthoff history
I don't think there is a findagrave memorial for her. I have the info an - Mary Catherine Puthoff, and I'm never quite sure of my information, though I believe my mother-in-law (age 85) had a distant memory of her. In my tree, I have her married to Joseph Carl Ankenbauer (1847-1887). Her parents were Johann Heinrich Puthoff 1817-1871/ Mary Elizabeth Lange 1816-1860.

Their children were: Anna Elizabeth, Gehard Joseph, Marie Elizabeth, Catherine (1875-1940) ** She married John H. Eyink and they are my husband's great grandparents.

Hope any of this info helps - but I have not checked out too much of this side of the family. I do have a grave photo for John Eyink and Catherine - in the Precious Blood Cemetery in Chickasaw.

RE: Citations
A. - I have not done the DNA. I, actually, am not from this area at all - my relatives/ancestors are from Western New York State. My husband, however, is from this area and he may be related in multiple ways - his mother was from Maria Stein and Mary Catherine Puthoff was his 3rd great grandmother. I've thought about doing that DNA - but I'm a little confused by what it will show and what the point is - so I haven't looked into it to see if its worth it for me. I like to contribute to findagrave, because I have to count on others like me to find my own ancestry. My next goal is to try to figure out how to write up individual history's and organize that into some readable fashion - like you did with your paper. I also like the idea of a family page that you were working on. Sigh - too much to do! Best wishes....

RE: Ancestry
No problem...I'm glad to know the story as I always wonder what past history there is - (Ha - hence my interest in ancestry/findagrave). I'm guessing that you and I (or rather, my husband) are distantly related, if I have put some of your photos in ancestory. I'm just never sure how to properly cite a photo - I started by putting a photo tag and was not sure if that was the correct way to do it, so I thought I had better just remove the photos.
