Bernard Karg Memorial

I traveled to Indiana looking for this stone but did not find it in the Holy Family cemetery in Oldenburg, IN while I was searching during the summer of 2013. Not only was this photo added recently, but a birthplace in Germany was added as well as a specific birthdate. Is it possible to share the source of the birthplace and birthdate for Bernard Karg? I am extremely grateful for this information as Bernard is my gg-grandfather on my mother's side. Thank you so much!

RE: Elizabeth Burgermeister
It is confusing. Her husband was August Burgermeister, but his birthdate was 1860. I haven't actually found his death date or location yet. I expect he is buried with his second wife Anna.

For $5 you can sponsor the memorial and add up to 20 pictures.

I can not add the veterans marker picture to his memorial because there are already 5 pictures added. The maximum has been reached. Sorry, Mike

Holy Family
I did take pictures of many of the old stones. I will send them to you in the near future to see if you can identify any. I still have a long way to go on posting pictures. That was a larger cemetery than I remembered. There also must be several thousand nuns buried in the cemetery nearby.

Thank you for finding Emma Sellmeyer's date of bieth in Holy Family records and for your time and effort. My problem now is that I have a younger sister Clara Fredrica Sellmeyer born in Aug 1882. That would make 5 months between births.

Memorial Edits
If you use the edit tab on the top right corner of the memorial that you want modified it makes it a much quicker process than fumbling through various links. This works for links to parents and spouses, plot information, vital dates, and places. Thanks, Patrizia.

Bio Additions
I'm saving your requests that I can't address immediately. I've been without a PC since December, using only a tablet at home. I'm hopefully getting the new computer up and running today but it may take me a while to get to all the bio additions. Thanks for understanding the delay.

John Ortman
The Ortman you have referenced is said to have died in 1966.
My John Ortman was married in 1865. I don't believe this is my Jhon unless there is an error in the posting.
I appreciate your help.

Mariane Kleiss Clementz
My great grandmother, Katherine Clementz, was the granddaughter of Mariane Kleiss Clementz through her son Michael (1842). Thank you for the biography of Mariane, it really brought her and the family to life for us.

We live in Utah and will be travelling to Oldenburg, IN later this month, and I wondered if any of the Kleiss or Clementz family members still live in the town? If you or others live there, I would enjoy getting together to learn more of the family heritage.

Thank you again,
John Dietrich

Great grandmother was Filomena Waecther,
daughter of Eberhard and Maria Elizabeth Krumplebeck.
Filomena married Bernard Antonius Dahmus 28 May 1865 in Oldenburg, IN. They had 14 children and an adopted son. Filomena died 1 Dec 1912 in Knobel, Clay Co, AR and is buried in St. George Cemetery. Her husband died 26 Feb 1897 in Oldenburg and I believe he is buried Holy Family Cemetery.

My primary names of interest at Holy Family are Sellmeyer, Dahmus/Damhus, Waechter, Haverkamp. All Sellmeyer and Dahmus are relatives of mine.
I can't answer your question about Bernard Haverkamp and sugest that you not delete any memorials. I live in CA and will probably never get to Oldenburg. Thanks for all your efforts.

Calvin N. Harrub, III
Hi Patrizia,

It looks like you have uncovered one of the roots of the Harrub family. A few of our ancestors left the Plymouth / Plympton, MA area and went west to seek their fortunes. There are about a dozen of us who now bear this unusual name and trace our heritage back to the Mayflower. My grandfather Calvin N Harrub, graduated from MIT and set up an engineering business in Nashville, TN. My father followed in his footsteps and was a civil engineer with the N C & St L railroad, then the L & N. I jumped the track, earned degrees at Vanderbilt and am now a retired United Methodist pastor. I am Calvin N. Harrub, III. My sister, Betty Epps, has done rather extensive research on our family and might have information you would find useful. Obviously, we are kin to Marcus although it is a very distant kinship.

You might contact me at
