I live in Norwalk, Iowa and am willing to take photos at cemeteries in the area for people, particularly at the Norwalk Cemetery, which is in walking distance from my home.
I have been an amateur genealogist since my mother brought home a list of names from her mother's funeral in 1999. My own particular family tree research stretches far and wide, and that is why there are a handful of memorials from all over the place that I have done. My research can be found at the link to my website.
The WALDSPURGER name is one of particular interest to me. I also am interested in any and all descendants of Abinah WOOD and Susannah HUMPHREYS, married in 1799. The virtual graveyard "The Abinah Wood Project" is all of the found descendants on Find a Grave.
I will gladly transfer any memorials, provided they are related to you - if I am as close a relation however, I will gladly update it.
If I have posted a photograph, you are free to use it for any non-montary purpose, but please cite where you found it if you could.
If you email me, kindly let me know that you are emailing me in reference to something from Findagrave. Thank you!
RE: John H. I'm having an obit lookup done. Maybe we'll get lucky and he'll have one - hopefully.
Like you I did not find anyone named "Dominick" in any census where I located the family. Perhaps it was a middle name? Or perhaps he was one of the children that did not live long enough to be recorded thru census years?
IF there is an obit for John, I'll post it when found. If not, I'll also add a note stating that fact.
RE: John H. Hello - You can find these people, as a family, in the 1900 census, Cook Co, Ill. Parents John & Mary and children Jobson, John, Thomas, Mary, and James. They had 7 children but only 5 were still living at that time.
I can have an obit lookup done if you'd like? Let me know.
The siblings names, as seen on his memorial pg, were probably sent to me per suggestion. It is an earlier entry and since then I have stated putting a note on each pg when something is added per suggestion/comment. It helps me to keep track of what I've personally researched vs what others have suggested.
RE: Hagers Hi Kelley, I added Hannah Kehs as the mother for Jonas Hager. Peter's first wife was Charlotte and they had the following children together: John-1809, Michael-1812, Henry-1819, Mary-1821 and Susanna-1824 who was born after Jonas. Peter,Charlotte,Mary and Susanna are all buried together in Milford Christian Cemetery in NJ. I don't know where Hannah fits in but you have proof that she is the mother so I added her. Betty
You requested that I add the mother for Jonas,Henry,James and Camilla Hager as Hannah Kehrs. She didn't marry Peter Hager until 1826. His first wife was Charlotte and she is the mother of those children. Charlotte is buried with Peter and some other children of theirs.
No problem. My wife's family lived in the Danville and Washingtonville area so I was taking some pics of her line and saw the Cox name. Some distant cousins lived in Shamokin. Good luck on your research! - Jeff
more Wood descendants About a year ago I wrote to you asking about some immediate family members of James Baird and Margaret Wood Baird. In the intervening time, I've managed to come up with their names and locations which I thought I'd pass on to you. The John D Wood plot in Highwood has stones for several members of the family but not all. A Highwood burial card fills in the gaps. The top row is well marked with stones, but the bottom row has only a couple. In the center of the bottom row are James Baird and Margaret Wood Baird. To the immediate right of Margaret is her son, Charles W. Baird, and to the far left of James Baird is Charles' wife, Fannie Evans Baird. To the immediate right of Charles W. Baird is his sister Margaret Baird Williamson (wife of Claude Williamson who is buried elsewhere). To Margaret's right is George Wood whose grave is well marked. One more surprise showed up on the burial card: In the same interment space as is occupied by John D. Wood, a toddler was buried in 1891, just after the burial of John D. Wood. This child's name is Mabel Baird--almost certainly the first child of James and Margaret Wood Baird--cause of death listed as diphtheria at 17 mo of age. Unfortunately there is no 1890 census data to confirm this further. There are other grandchildren and great grand children of John Wood located here as well including Infant Smith and George Troutman--the grandchild of Charles W Wood, David Ehrlich, has a marked grave--Infant Toogood, who was a grandchild of James and Margaret Baird through their daughter Ethel, is also here, buried in the same plot as and reportedly on the same day as his aunt Margaret Williamson. Hope you find this helpful.
