I provided a photo for Clarence, and also Bertha, Kader but I was unable to locate a marker for George Kader. However the cemetery is still showing the effects of this heavy winter weather and I will look again in the next few weeks.

Hello, while it is winter, not much chance of photographs with the weather we have had. However, there are photos available on this website for your requests:

Re: Photo request for William Graham (1954) at Mt Hope
I have not been able to track this person down. The interment records for that time period ( show a William Graham who died in 1954, but he was age 86 and buried in an entirely different section of the cemetery.

Furthermore, if I look in the Registry of Single Graves sold, then there is no evidence of Single Grave #24, Row 144, Section BB being sold to the Graham family and the date of sale for that row of graves is 1914, not 1954 (although sometimes, a grave is sold well in advance of burial, e.g., if one spouse dies much earlier than another).

Where did you get the information you used to create that memorial?

GG, hi.

Regarding Frank P. Wilcox, d. 1884, do you know what the P initial stands for? Any other information such as place of birth? Thanks.

Photo request for Henry Steinhausen ? (1881)
Here is a copy of the problem report that I submitted regarding this photo request:

This memorial seems to be a duplicate of Memorial #41389925, i.e., they are for the same person. There is already a photo posted by another volunteer for that memorial.

As a general rule, people who died in 1892 or earlier at Mt Hope have a memorial created by "Who Wants to Know" from the Mt Hope Interment Records.

Re: Ludwig Sattler (Mt Hope)
Here is a copy of the problem report that I submitted on this photo request:

In regards to your photo request for Ludwig Sattler (d 1871), the Mt Hope Interment Records show him to be buried in Plot O-469. The plot maps for section O confirm (available here: this, but show that he and other family members are no longer there. It explains, "The above bodies were removed 12/22/32 and cremated ashes were scattered to [illegible, maybe "the winds"?] see RB 12/22/32." To the right there is a notation that says "This lot was all cleaned up 12/22/32/". [I am not show what "RB" refers to, but could be as innocuous as "right border" where the part about the lot being cleaned up is written.]

The plot map of the lot itself shows three more recent burials, two with the last name "Bliss".

A survey of legible tombstones in Section O done in the 1980s ( indeed confirms there are no surviving gravestones for "Sattler" in Section O.

So, unfortunately, we've hit a dead end in finding a surviving marker.

You're welcome!

That's the snow we had as of early Saturday morning, before we got another ~8" Saturday through Sunday morning!

You are welcome. I located and photographed Marian F Appel (1919-2013) next to William, but I did not locate a memorial for her.

RE: Duncan Graham

Unfortunately, there are no markers other than whatever tombstones are there...otherwise just grass (or, in some cases, trees, shrubbery, ...).

There are markers at the ends of (some of) the rows indicating what row it is, which is how we know which row we are in. We can then verify this...and also figure out where in the row we looking up the various legible tombstones in the internment records to find the row and the grave number in that row. (Conveniently, it turns out that the spacing between the single graves is pretty close to my stride, so I can interpolate fairly accurately between grave numbers some distance apart in a row simply by counting strides.)

RE: Jonathan
The caption to the photo explains the details...but the summary is that, no, none of them is his headstone. His grave should be somewhere in between the tombstone on the left and the two on the right but no grave marker was found. Not very many of the Old Single Graves have (surviving) markers, so this is not unusual. Also, it is of course unclear whether there was never a marker or whether there was one but it just hasn't survived.

RE: Christina Arend
If there was a headstone it is gone now. That is why I took a picture of the lot that you provided.

RE: George and Anna Arend
Hi Gail. The single graves wrap around a large part of the outside of the cemetery. I have claimed them and will look for them when I get back from Toronto.
