RE: Spouse of Michael John Drees
Thanks so much for straightening that out for me. Too bad the obits often overlook a first wife. I am a Drees relative because my 3 time great grandmother Wente Quatman married Tobias Drees in about 1835 after her first husband died so the Drees descendants of this family are half relatives. I am not sure how we related to Michael John.

Spouse of Michael John Drees
I received your edit suggestion about the spouse of this man. I found his obit and his wife's obit which I attached to their memorials. It appears there are 2 memorials to him #134434529 and #113593994 each with a different wife. The wife listed in the obit is Mary Wilkens Drees so I don't think this needs to be changed, but we do need to do something about the duplicate memorial for Michael. Do you have other documentation that supports a different wife?

RE: Simko's (163405294)
There was a Joseph Kavran on Find a Grave and I think he was buried in Pennsylvania. I can't remember exactly though. You should be able to look him up, I think his middle name was Elswood or something similar. I'm not from either Pennsylvania or Ohio though. Sorry I can't be of more help.

RE: Simko's (163405294)
I've looked in all the Cleveland, Ohio area cemeteries indexes that I can and I haven't been able to locate the Kavran's you're looking for. There is a possibility they could have been cremated though. If you know where any relatives of theirs are buried, I'd start there and look at other nearby cemeteries from there.

RE: Simko's (163405294)
Union Cemetery is in Irwin, PA. Same place the duplicate cemetery said. I'll also check the Cleveland Cemetery records that I'm able to for those Kavran's you mentioned and see what I can dig up.

You have Florence and her husband in a duplicate cemetery. Both of them need to be in Union Cemetery. Here's a link to the right cemetery:

I rejected it because the person you were trying to attach as her father, would only have been 14 years old at the time of her birth.

Edit request for Bernard Dickman- memorial 107147256
Your previous edit request for this memorial has been reversed, backed out. See the memorial for explanation. This appears to be a mistaken identity, this is not the Catholic priest born in Auglaize County, Ohio, that you expected; not the son of Carl Heinrich Dickman and Maria Angela Drees Dickman.

RE: find a grave
I transferred her memorial to you so if you want to add additional information or anything you are able to edit the information on her memorial. If anyone has any questions about her, if they are researching her, they will be able to send you a message asking for more information or some might have additional information to add. I hope this helps.
