RE: Richard Guentner
No problem at all, glad to help. I'm very familiar with Section 22 because I'm half Irish & Section 22 has a ton of Irish residing there so I knew right where he was supposed to be. Just a matter of getting the tools out of the trunk of the car & getting the marker uncovered & cleaned. Anything for a veteran. A veteran's marker needs to be seen.

And I always wanted to be an air traffic controller when I grew up. I don't know what the rules are now but way back then I would've had to get a pilot's license. The possibility of a plane crash freaked my mother out so badly that I didn't have the heart to do it.

Take care,

Cyn

I uploaded a pic of his marker. Kind of a good thing you made the request when you did. :) The marker was well on its way to being buried. I unburied it & cleaned it up as best I could.

Take care,

Cyn

RE: Joseph and Louise Walsh
Here is who is buried next to them.

I wanted to send you a message that I did come across your request for Joseph Walsh in section 16. I posted his and Louise's photos on their memorials for you tonight.

The people buried next to Joseph and Louis Walsh are (I have already added their memorials with the headstone photos)

On the right of John is Louise, then it goes John W. Barlev and then Helen Barlev, Lena Herzenstiel, then Dennis Barlev, and the end of the row is John Pochodendko (and his wife and son who are still alive).

On the left of John is James and Jennie Stone (who share the headstone) , then Helen O. Stewart, Ruby Stewart, and then Charles F. Stewart.

The other names you mentioned in your photo request were no where around the Walsh plot.

Hope that helps you.
Kathy

RE: Memorial transfer requests continued
Hi Beth
Please ask for the transfer(s) the correct way by going to each memorial and clicking on edit and requesting a transfer and giving your F.A.G. number. If you check two out the three memorial numbers you requested are not mine.
I make mistakes also, it happens to all of us, me more then others, that is probably why they came up with the correct way.

Thanks for being a contributor

Okay, thanks for letting me know. I didn't realize that. I've put in a request for gravesite photos....hopefully, someone is available who can help in that way. Thanks again!

RE: Automobile Cemetery
Beth, Good morning!

The automobile cemetery is a listing of the names of automobile companies that exist or once existed. Some of these names are very obscure and were produced for a very short time. For this virtual cemetery I must actually see and photograph the grave marker. I have updated this in the last week.

I do have another virtual cemetery for graves with cars on them. I would be happy if you would forward me the memorial number of any graves with vehicles on them. I also have virtual cemeteries for motorcycles and trucks.

My last name is not in any of these cemeteries. I have just liked cars since I was very young.

By the way, if you submit a photo request for Ignacy Andrzejewski I will post photos for him. The photo of the flowers that is posted is not the correct location. There is a grave marker for him.

RE: Ignacy Andrzejewski's son Frank
Found!

1. Frank Andrews, Sr, 1872 - 1940
2. Frank Andrews, 1896 - 1916
3. Katherine Murawski, 1836 - 1917

All the previous photographer had to do to find Frank, Sr. was to turn around. The top half of his grave marker was visible. The other two above were hidden. I am not sure if Katherine is part of the family, but her marker is the same style as Margaret's.

If you add the photo requests for the people shown above I will post the photos I took today.

RE: Ignacy Andrzejewski's son Frank
Hi! Can you please add the photo request for Ignacy Andrzejewski (you can now add a photo request even if a photo is already present)?

I found the Andrzejewski family because when there is not a grave marker I try and make sure I am in the correct location and that I did not miss something. With their graves, since the cemetery office was closed, I carefully poked the ground in the area I thought there should be grave markers. Sometimes it works.

Since this area of the cemetery regularly floods there are many hidden grave markers. I think too many photographers probably just give up if something is not immediately visible. I do not believe the person who took the photo of Ignacy's supposed grave location was in the right place. The grave marker shown to the left of the flowers does not match anything in my photo.

Last year I had a cemetery office tell me that there were no grave markers for two people that I was trying to find. I told them I still wanted to go to the gravesite. Once there I could not find any grave markers or in-ground lot markers. About 15 minutes later I found the first lot marker, and I found the cemetery office person was pretty far off in his description of where the grave was located. I then proceeded to uncover other lot markers farther East. It was then that I found that there were in fact grave markers for the two people I was looking to find along with a third grave marker for another family member. Since then I double check everything when I cannot find a grave marker.

For me, unless I really know a cemetery it is also hard to be certain of what I cannot find. Having fulfilled almost 150 photo requests in this cemetery I know that there are very few unmarked graves in most sections except those where there were term graves. I also know this cemetery has very accurate maps, so even in the absence of in-ground lot markers I can find the lot that someone is buried in anyone fairly quickly. Lastly, this cemetery has a kiosk that you can use to find grave locations. This enables me to write down the names of those I believe are buried next to the person I am searching to find, go to the kiosk and look their name and burial location up. This confirms the burial location - especially in areas without lot markers. I have corrected several other memorials that stated there was no grave marker through this process.

If I am going to tell a family that there is no grave marker I want to be as certain as possible that this is true. Although grave finding is not a profession, it is just like any other field of research. I as the researcher need to do my due diligence, use all of the tools at my disposal, and present as accurate a picture (pun intended) of what I find to the family. To do otherwise just does not seem right.

Please let me know when you have added the photo request for Ignacy. Thank you! Ace

RE: Warnke Family Update
Hi Beth,

Don't know if you got my email message but I went back to Concordia Cemetery and got much better pictures of the Warnke headstones. I also came across another headstone with the Warnke name on it and sent it to you at your email address.

Thanks,
Denise

Warnke Brothers Memorials
Hi Beth,

Congratulations! Figuring out about your Warnke family is quite a find. I have not been out to Concordia since I took the original pictures but I'll make a point of trying to get there this week so we can improve the photos. We're expecting some snow tomorrow and cold the first part of the week but we'll hope for the best and I'll take a broom with me!

I'll be in touch,
Denise

RE: Warnke Brothers Memorials
Hi Beth,

Sorry to hear that the Concordia Warnkes may not be your family. I assume we'll still leave them up on Find A Grave and I still want to get better pictures if I can.

Good luck finding YOUR Warnkes!

Warnke Brothers Memorials
Hi Beth,

Today I went to Concordia Cemetery to find the Warnke brothers graves. Here's what I found.....

There are two headstones. Adolph has his own stone and Herman, John and Edward are all listed on one stone. While I am not happy with the pictures, I did post to Edwards Find A Grave memorial. If you want to add the other three (Adolph, Herman, and John) and I will post pictures for them too but again, I'm not happy with the pictures. I intend to go back to the gravesite the next time I'm at Concordia and try it again.

Thanks,
Denise

RE: Edward Warnke
Beth,

I will try to go out to Concordia Cemetery on Saturday or Tuesday of next week.

Thanks for the additional information. It will make the graves much easier to find.

James and Elsie Kasik
Hi Beth,

I just uploaded the pictures for James and Elsie Kasik. As I was doing it I noticed that there are two entries for Elsie so I just uploaded the photos to one of the two.

Interesting about Edward Warnke. I will ask about him again the next time I'm out there just in case there was an error of some sort.

Thanks,
Denise

James and Elsie Kasik
Hi Beth,

Today I took pictures of the Ruehling and Kasik families. I got Charles and Emma Ruehling, Frank and Emily Kasik, and James and Elsie Kasik. I could not find James and Elsie on Find A Grave to post their headstone. If you add a memorial page for them I would be happy to post what I have. If you would prefer to look at the pictures first you can contact me online at denisehebble@yahoo.com and I will email them to you.

Thanks!

I just noticed another duplicate that you created, this time for a Lorraine Barstow 1926 - 1979 at Live Oak cemetery.

Hi Beth.

I just noticed that you have created a second record for Eva Aldrich at the Live Oak cemetery. It seems that the first one was created in 2011 so you might want to consider removing your entry being as it was created much later.

Thanks

RE: Live Oak
Yes I got out and did eight, though there were two that I think are unmarked graves. I'm visiting with Aja next week to go out and verify those graves are unmarked.

I've now got 8 more grave locations from Aja that I'll be doing next Thursday afternoon.

I don't know anyone that is looking to buy a trailer style home.
