Quincy Stroeing - I am a native of Melrose, Minn, which is in central Minnesota - 100 miles northwest of the Twin Cities in Stearns County.
Son of: Alcuin H & Merena "Joie" (Welle) Stroeing
Grandson of: Henry & Anna Nathe Stroeing Anton & Apollonia Schoenberg Welle
In addition to the 4 sir names above, the other last names in my family tree are Ortmann and Gerads.
CEMETERIES I frequently visit the 3 cemeteries in Melrose: St. Mary's (formerly St. Boniface), St. Patrick's and the town's oldest graveyard, Oak Hill Cemetery (formerly known as Melrose Burial Grounds)
I also frequently visit the cemeteries in the communities surrounding Melrose: Greenwald, Meire Grove, Spring Hill, New Munich, Freeport, St. Martin, Lake Henry, Richmond, St. Cloud and others in Stearns County.
I try to take photos of the gravestone in the cemeteries above if a photo request has been submitted.
UPDATE ON MELROSE CEMETERIES PROJECT
The three cemeteries in my hometown of Melrose, Stearns County, Minnesota are: - Oak Hill Cemetery - St. Patrick's Cemetery - St. Mary's Cemetery (formerly St. Boniface)
I have documented these three cemeteries by creating Find A Grave burial records for every individual buried in the three cemeteries through 2011.
In addition to the burial records, I've posted gravestone photos as well. Links to the spouse, parents and children continue to be added if the genealogy connection is known.
TRANSFERS: If I created a burial record for your relative (direct line and within 4 generations), and the individual is not a relative of mine, you can request a transfer of ownership of the burial record by emailing me.
My preference is to click the "Edit" tab in the upper right corner of the memorial record. Then click the "Suggest a Correction" link.
Please include the following in your transfer request email:
- your first, last name & Find A Grave member ID - the first last name on the burial record - the burial record number - your relationship to the individual
Please allow a generous amount of time for processing your request.
NOTE: Please do not blindly transfer your records to me. Disposing your records on other Find A Grave contributors is disrespectful to both the deceased and the contributor.
Edward Schanhaar Hello. You listed on Edward Schanhaar's memorial he was buried on foreign soil, but US Rosters for Military Dead from WW2 records show he was returned to Minnesota for final burial. While half of the other members of his flight crew are buried in Normandy, I believe he is actually buried there in the family plot in Minnesota, do you have any other information either way?
I was wondering if you have any information about the Emmanuel Grove Cemetery in Lake Henry, Minnesota. I have at least three ancestors buried there, Wilhelm, Augusta and John Schmidt. You have taken photos of Wilhelms and Augustas headstones there, any maybe by chance you have also taken John's? I was wondering since you photographed so much there, if you know where the sexton record might be held for that cemetery.
Thanks so much for taking the photos you have! I never would have seen them if you hadn't don it!
