Oh you are very welcome! My partner in crime, Kurt (also a photo volunteer) gave me the heads up that she didn't have a headstone but told me the location of her plot. Glad to help. And thank you for your service. :) I was living at Clark AFB when the POWs came home in 1973. Heroes - all of you.

Please know Hugh and his wife do not have a grave stone. I have posted a photo of the area where they are buried. They are in Section 7 Lot 43 Graves 3 & 4. In fact, 5 out of the 6 burials in this lot have no markers. I even checked with the people who have the cemetery records to make sure I was looking in the correct area. It appears that a G.W. Mochamer and wife are also buried there as well as a Frank and Pearl Soule (she has a stone). FYI...the Dekalb County death records show the last name spelled as ANTWERP as does the official Roselawn records.

Hey RastaDan48, your welcome, not hard to find at all, online mapping from Roselawn is easy. Um little muddy, but not frozen there in Minnesota? WOW. Take care, Bob L.

My pleasure! The person who created the memorial is now deceased so you'll have to wait a few weeks for the site to automatically accept my edits. Let me know if I can be of anymore assistance. Take care.

RE: George Siegel Headstone
Dan...they are located in section 13. Easy to find. If you wish any additional information from the office, I might suggest gathering beforehand or making an appt with Mr Rieke. He is not often in the office as he does all the grounds work for the cemetery, too. One can leave a message and he should get back to you. You can also gather information from the Willenar genealogy annex of the Auburn library. There is a book there that lists internments for the Woodlawn cemetery up until the middle/late 1980's. Death, birth, marriage records available, too, to name a few. There is also has a map of the grounds one can copy. Let me know if I can send any additional information your happy to do so.

RE: George Siegel Headstone
Please know that I was incorrect with information I sent you in the last message. George and Mabel are buried next to their daughter who lived only 12 days. I think there may be also an infant son that died March 10, 1922. Hence thinking there were 2 children. The death record states "infant son Seigel", parents George and Mabel. (I find many spelling errors). I found that when looking up the daughter to see if there were additional dates/info. I do not know if he was buried at Woodlawn. Next to the Siegel's is the Guilfords....Martha & Wm. I believe they are Mabel's parents? There is also a Ruth Robertson and a Bertha Guilford nearby. I am going to guess daughters? I did not research to see what the relation was. Those are the 2 daughters I was thinking about.

RE: George Siegel Headstone
I see spelling variations all time for surnames, especially German ones. The stone has lots of algae on it, so I am glad it was still legible in the photo. Did you see the photo of their daughters' stones, too? All are together.

The child's name was Thomas Michael Wilson and he was just to the right of Faun Wilson. I have already added a memorial and photo. Barb

RE: Faun (Lancaster) Wilson
It was my pleasure. Right next to Faun and Carl Wilson was a Thomas Michael Wilson. I don't know if that would be someone you would be interested in too. He was just a baby. Barb

RE: Albert Edwards sone
Dan, I am always reluctant to report a problem since I could be overlooking something. Oak Hill is not easy to navigate but area 33 & 34 are marked better with plot # markers (i.e. 74) than the older part of the cemetery. It was not a waste of my time, I just wish I could have found it. Maybe you can check your source on the 33-74 area.

RE: Joseph Pimlott

It was my pleasure to take that photo for you. Cleveland cemetery is only about 15 miles from my house and it was the my first time there.

I love helping to preserve family history and visiting those old, out of the way cemeteries.

I believe I have a photo of the headstone for Joseph's wife as well. Louisa I believe. Let me know if you would like that as well.

RE: Charles Wolever
Sorry the headstone was all wet and causing a bit of glare, I tried wiping it off. The picture could have been better but the sprinklers were on in that of end section only(of course!) and it was like running a timed maize to get to the headstone without being sprayed by 5 sprinklers circulating in different directions! :-) The most challenging one yet! LOL

RE: Mary Meek
I'm happy you liked the photos for Isaac & Mary. As I'm sure you have guessed her name was on one side and his on the other. I went today to get the picture because it has been a little cooler the past couple of days, at least in the mornings. I was especially lucky this morning for we got a little rain while I was out. Not enough but it settled the dust as they say.
