|Bio and Links|
I'm researching as many branches of my family as possible. Surnames include: Scheihagen, Koch, Vinson, Cantrell, Smith, Witten, Neiman, Flowers, Johnson, Cowan, Gillette, Gillespie, Fleetwood, Collier, Bowles, and more...|
Currently I'm most interested in locating the grave of my g-g-g-grandfather Theodore H. Scheihagen. Last record of him alive was in 1867 in near Brenham, Washington County, Texas. And he most likely died by 1870. I believe he is likely buried in the Washington Co. or San Antonio area. His brother Louis is buried in City Cemetery #1. His brother Charles (or Carl) was killed in San Antonio in 1866. I'd like to find Charles' grave also.
I plan to contribute more graves/memorials to this site as time permits!

Where are I get that book?
Dale, where is this cemetery. I had a relative, who went to Cincinnati back when the Yellow Fever Sickness hit it, and was never heard from again.
|Margie||RE: Schachtrupp grave|
Yeah, I know he was killed in 1878 (some Halloween huh!) ... but that's what the cemetery records have for some unexplained reason.

You may not remember me, but I have a question.
I get notifications for people's relatives to be linked to my great grandfather and they only list a number with maybe five digits.
How do I find out what grave they want linked to the one I have listed?

Wishing you and yours a safe and very Merry Christmas. May your home be filled with the magic and warmeth of this joyous holiday season.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. Luke 2:10-16
Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus!
Hello again, I will look for that pic and an email address for you, as well.
You mentioned a pic you have in front of the church. My ancestors would probably be in that pic too, for they lived right there on the battlfield (now park). Can you attach a copy of it?

Hello, thanks for your quick reply, as well. No, I'm not a Cantrell descendant, although if you are then I can direct you to the right person to learn more of them. They were a well known family of that area, much history there, Civil War and so on.

I know my information is accurate and in that cemetery because I am from that area, and know the cemetery. I took a picture of the Cantrells grave many years ago when I was doing research. If I dug I am sure I could find it. The Cantrells are burried in that cemetery right on the edge of Shiloh National Military Park, along with other ancestors of mine. Large double monument about a fourth away from the road that goes by, middle section, kinda black tombstone.Maybe it is just from the age and weathering of Nature but it is a dark color.
Thank you for your inquiry.
