James/Schrock Cemetery - Portage
Portage Community Historical Society, Inc.
General meeting
Wednesday April 16, 2014, will be held at 7:00 pm at Woodland Park
Public welcome
Our guest speaker will be Brendan Clancy, Portage Twp. Trustee, who will speak on the township cemeteries. He will tell us about the improvements and changes at the James/ Schrock cemetery where some if our earliest settlers are buried.

Brendan Clancy announced at his State of the Township address at the Bonner Senior Center on Feb. 13, 2014: Improvements to James-Schrock Cemetery - A steep incline at the main entrance has prohibited access to many visitors. We are currently under construction of a new entrance into James/Schrock Cemetery. As soon as the weather cooperates we will continue with this project. Also, a new James-Schrock memorial monument will be installed at McCool Cemetery. This monument will list the names of the deceased at James-Schrock Cemetery. A dedication ceremony is being planned.

Please come out and learn what our trustee is doing. Refreshments will be served. For more information check our page at or call the museum at 219-762-8349.

Golden Hopper memorial
Hi. I cannot change the death date for Golden Hopper as his headstone says 18 April 1916 and his death certificate reflects the same date. Sorry.

No relations to Henry or Jennie.
I am just an avid Find A Grave contributor.
I was raised less than a mile from
the Garrett cemetery and have an
uncle and GGrandmother buried there.
(The cemetery is really a mess.
Located in the woods with no known upkeep).

As you know, you can only update upwards
so I asked the mgr. of their memorials
(Garrett Cemetery) to add their parents.

Hi Sheena,

You are so welcome! Happy to connect family.

If you go to the memorial for Lillian Butcher, you will find the person who created the request. I believe her name is Vicky ??

Not sure if she is a relative or a volunteer. Let's hope for relative!

Happy Connecting,

Henry & Henrietta Kuehl
Hi Sheena,

I have found Henry and Henrietta "Hattie" Kuehl.
They are resting at Calumet Park Cemetery, Merriville, IN., section 1, row 12.
I uploaded the photo for Henry but it was not on your memorial. There is another memorial for him entered by another member.
I did upload the photos for Henrietta "Hattie" to your memorial. Did you want me to upload my photos for your memorial for Henry?
I found them while searching for the resting place for their daughter Lillian Butcher for another member.
Maybe all three of you are
Let me know what you want me to do about Henry's photo.
