RE: Hass
Interesting to hear that you are a teacher. I'm a retired school librarian. I'll check once more for Hattie when I have a chance. What a sad story, that she died so young along with twin babies, leaving three small children. It's not surprising that Charles married again the next year. Those pioneers had to be strong people!

RE: Hass
Hi Jessica,
I went back to the cemetery yesterday. You'll see the Sterling markers that I uploaded. The rows at the Franklin Cemetery aren't all orderly, and I had missed that short row on my first trip. I took two photos of the second side of the Hass marker, but when I got home I realized that they only record Lane Hass and Baby Hass, which I'd already included. It seems like their mother *should* be on that marker, but I think the other two sides were blank. The next time I'm in the area, I'll check again.

I live now in Colman, about 18 miles east of Madison, and I grew up about 45 miles northwest of Madison, so my ties to that town are pretty minimal. Sadly I didn't recognize any of the names you listed, but I know I've heard people talk about the Franklin school. I'm glad that you've been able to keep a piece of that family history!

RE: Hattie Hass
Normally this time of the year in South Dakota it would be difficult to do this, but we are actually having a bit of warm weather here that has melted our snow. I'll try to get back to Franklin some day next week, and see what luck I have!

RE: Lane Hass
Hi Jessica,
I'd love to take credit for the inscription's being more legible, but it was just a happy coincidence. Someone else may have cleaned the stone, or it may just have been that I happened to take the photo when the lighting was perfect. The angle of the sun, and how cloudy or sunny a day happens to be, can make such a difference!
Thanks so much,

We do have a society and I am a member. I will send you general information for research in the e-mail later this evening. Heading out for your requests. If Diane Torbeck's stone is not up I will do it at a later date.

I do have info on Robert Wayne Meseke if you don't have it. No digital copy of marriage but I will send you marriage info that I find in the marriage books. 1821-1915. I am not related.

I see you have some request that need filling at Heckethorn and Immanuel. Let me see about filling those for you.

Thank you for the information for August Meseke.
I have his second marriage record if you need the information. I will get this information added to Jeanette's memorial.

RE: Meseke grave
I received the following message from you on Sunday, but do not understand what you are asking. [Could you add your picture to George Meseke memorial that is already on his wife's memorial? I did a request as well. Thanks, Jessica] If you are more specific, maybe I can help. David

RE: Sterling
I enjoy the collaboration too. The resulting information is always more complete and accurate when there are several people contributing and checking!

RE: Hass
It was my pleasure! I'm trying to get some photos taken before the snow flies here in South Dakota.

Best regards,

RE: Mary Umberger
Jessica, sorry but I don't know of another cemetery with Slate Hill name. If a plot was shared, there is no record of that. I will see if I can get a list of all of the Umbergers there, and see if a marker has Mary's name as shared. Chuck

I have transcribed the obituary, if you would remove the copy of it, that would be great.

Hi Jessica,

I saw your photos of mary vanasdall and samuel paulus. It was awsome seeing a photo of my relatives. Where did you get them? Samuel was my ggg grandfather. I have photos of his son Murray if you are interested that I got from my grandmother. Do you know any more about mary vanasdall's geneology? I think her parents were alexander and leah speece. I think alexander's father was simon vanasdall but I haven't gotten any hard evidence. Any help would be great.

RE: photos
It is a small cemetery and easy to check all stones.
While there I visited with two locals who were planting. All three of us looked for Henry's stone. They thought they knew the name but recalled he was buried in California. Will recheck back if you are sure of the location.
