RE: Lakewood photo requests
Thanks for attempting to find the Ettner's last fall. Was wondering if you were planning on attempting again this spring. I am getting a map from Lakewood and can forward it to you when I receive it.

Oscar Richard Krenz: #113742906
Dear Bob,

You have done great work at Bluff City Cemetery. Thanks so much.

If interested, the birthplace of "Oscar Richard Krenz" (113742906)is today in Poland. But when Oscar was born it was in the "Prussian Province of Posen."

Good luck in your quest.

gravestone of Mary and John Villars
Wow! Thank you so much for taking this picture and so quickly. I just put the request in a few days ago. These folks were my husband's great grandparents. We are so pleased to have another piece to the ancestry puzzle in place.

In gratitude.

Library death records
Thank you, what a find (cause of death etc). Fredericke Schuknecht Bohne had parents of Sophie and Fredrick Schuknecht.

RE: Sophia Stringer Schuknecht
Thank you for your timely reply. If you obtained the information from schuk1 on ancestry, it was me. The name Sophia Stringer was obtained from Christian Schuknechts marriage certificate in Waverly, Iowa. We will be in Elgin doing genealogy research shortly. Can you tell me where the Elgin city death record is located? we would like to view these records. I had planned on sending an e-mail to the Sexton of Bluff City Cemetery to see if they could find out more information about Sophia and all other Schuknechts buried there. Do the Elgin city death records include all information contained in the Sexton record? If so, I would not bother them.
Thanks for the information.

Thanks for posting the photo of Lucius Hubbard's gravestone.

Sophia Stringer Schuknecht
Thank you for posting her information. Sophia would be our great-great-great Grandmother. Could you tell me where you located her maiden name information? We have been trying to confirm this name. Besides Charles and Fredricke, her other children are Joseph and Christian buried in Waverly, Iowa and our Great-Great Grandfather Johann, buried in Seward County, Nebraska. She also had a son Fritz who must have died before 1870. Her husband was Fredrick who also must have died before 1870.
