RE: Lotta Erickson Davis
On the graves at Lancaster, you don't mind that I don't know exact locations? That's probably why I have not asked for photos. Judy

At your request I have put in requests for
photos of gravestones.
Again I ask? - What is your proof for 1877 death
date of Rev. Nelson Hoag?

The husband is - sort of. They are part of my ex-husband's family, or maybe I should say - my three sons' family. :)

I received notice today that Robert's stone could not be found in Alden Union Free Cemetery. Was sure family told me he was there. Is there no registery associated there with the cemetery? I appreciate the time you have already spent trying to locate him...

RE: Mitzels Lancaster Rural Cemetery
Take your time, all those other names are going to confuse me! Will give me something to do this winter (sorting it all out). I am just so glad someone is doing more in that area, as it has already answered so many questions. Look forward to hearing from you later.
Take Care,

Hi ..

It means that I got the information from a transcription online. What you can do is google the cemetery and see if you can find a transcription that differs from yours there may be other notations that I didn't make.

Good luck!

RE: Mitzels Lancaster Rural Cemetery
I feel like a kid in a candy store! Thank you soooo much for the photographs. They are wonderful!
I will begin the search to find out how the Beckers come into play, and see about the church records.
I hadn't done much on Heinemen's, but now I have more to go on so will see where Elizabeth and Charles come in.
Again, Thank you!

You're very welcome!

RE: Mitzels Lancaster Rural Cemetery
Thank you for your willingness to help dig deeper!
per 1900 census; Frederick and Elizabeth only had one child; daughter Catherine, born @1850 -died before 1920, she married Peter Heineman in 1869. Catherine and Peter had 3 known children; Lucy, Charles & William.
Fred & Elizabeth also had one adopted son; Anton Long - as per 1875 census.

None of the census for George and Louisa show all children at once, it's pieced together from all of them: The 1900 census George and Louisa, mother states 2 of 9 children living. I can only find names for 6 total;
1. Louisa 1858- died before 1865,
2. George/Augustus 1860 -died before 1875,
3. Christine 1862-unknown (alive in 1880) or married,
4. George 1865 - died before 1870,
5. Otto is accounted for (1867-1956)
6. Carrie 1877 - unknown when died or married, but still living in 1892.
The other 3 never show up in a census, so assumed died in infancy in between census's.

Depending on dates - Becker could be any one of the female daughters married name. Anything you can help with as to names on burial record or dates, will help me on a path to researching them.
Bless you,

RE: Who is this Martzolf?
There is a Charles E Martzloff who is a son of Philip and Louisa Martzloff who lived in Lancaster and Buffalo. He was married to Marie and they had a niece Flora Stutter living with them on the 1910 Census. Philip came from Alsace as did our Martzolfs. I have never figured out if they are related to us and just changed the spelling of their name. Carol

ooh, forgot to mention ...
Elizabeth Landseadel Miller and George Miller had at least two other children. Mary Miller married a Eugene O'Connell. They lived in Buffalo, so may not be buried in LRC.

The other daughter was Louise or "Lulu" as she seems to be called in several census records. Can't seem to find her after 1910, she probably married, but I have nothing to go on to find her.

Hi Kathi!
Sorry I have been off the grid, super busy getting the girls back to school.

As to the Millers. Elizabeth Landseadel married George Henry Miller. They are both in LRC and linked to them are two of their children; Elizabeth (I have not been able to trace anything more on her but am grateful you were able to post what remains of her gravestone) and Frank Franklin Miller. I cannot locate Frank Franklin Miller in the 1920, 1925, or 1930 census records (too many that could be him) so I do not know if he married and if his spouse is buried in LRC.

I see you have added quite a few Millers, so let me see if I can link any of them up!

RE: Edward Billiar photo
Thank you for the photo of Edward Billiar's gravestone. Did you find it by accident? Wish I could have been there! We will definitely plan a trip back to Erie County and will visit him and others. He is my husband's grandfather.

Hi Kathi!
Just another quick thank you for all the work you are doing! I met with a relative from NYC and he had copies of the estate record for Henry Landseadel's wife Margaret (both of whom you found and added to f.a.g. and transferred to me).

The estate record listed the children of Henry and Margaret as well as 2 sets of grandchildren; the Rupprechts and the Millers. This allowed me to find the two "missing" married daughters of Henry & Margaret, both of whom are buried in LRC.

I have requested links, but wanted to thank you again for your work-wouldn't have found them without you!

Blessings to you, my friend! Nicely done!

Florence S Schmitt Smith request
Sorry; I would normally transfer any request; but the Florence S Schmitt Smith you requested is a relative so I am going to have to decline transfer.

Do you have a copy of the records to the cemetery?? I'd be very interested to see those if you do.

Itís been some time and I canít remember if the cemetery itself verified if she was there. I do know her deceased husband is buried there in a multiple plot. He is buried with who I assume, is either his ex wife or sister by the dates on the grave. The grave also has one blank spot on it.
