RE: Jahr in Roselawn
Thank you for fulfilling my photo requests! And thank you for going above and beyond to find the potential duplicate with Esther. I'll research it and make corrections.

RE: Schimnich
When it comes to questions of dates, names etc. Find A Grave's policy is, as far as I know, still to put it as it appears on the stone. So I just go with what the stone says and add any information about conflicting data in the bio. If nothing else, it cuts down on accidental duplicating. Unless I can find actual birth records for Andrew and his wife, I will never know for certain which dates are correct.

The same applies with names on stones. My mom's sister Marie is a perfect example of this. Aunt Marie's first husband died before she did, and later in life she married for a second time. When my aunt died her name was Marie Cartwright. It was the name under which her obituary appeared, her death record was filed etc. However, since both she and her second husband had been married for years to their first spouses and had all their children with those spouses, when they died, they each were buried with their first spouse.

So I have a memorial for my aunt that is under the name Marie Evans. It is not the name she carried when she died, but the name that appears on her headstone, and Find A Grave does say to record things as they appear on the stone. Since she is linked to both husbands and to her parents, I am sure that anyone who comes looking for a memorial for her will be able to find her easily enough.

Thanks for posting the genealogy as I am working on Gilbert Hendricksons descendants in eastern Washington state not far from where Hannah Rodvold died. Your info helped me to trace the family more easily.
