RE: Sarah Risner Memorial

Thank you for transferring Sarah to me!

My email is Would you mind sending me an email so I can reply privately?

I've been searching for my relatives for a long long time and only recently discovered I have some third cousins. My dad (Harry J III) was an only child. His dad (Harry J II) had one brother who died having no children. Harry J II's wife Laura was an only child. His dad (Dr Harry J I) was orphaned as a child and had two sisters, one was a nun and we haven't found the other one. Dr Harry's wife Eliza Jane Maack we discovered recently had brothers and sisters. That's where I found a third cousin. Eliza's mother was Sarah Risner.

Anyway, now it sounds like I've discovered another relative. (your husband)

Husum Ancestors
I see you have requested a PHOTO at the cemetery in Husum. (good luck with that one)
What are the names you are researching in Husum or surrounding communities?
My Blocks are from Husum and Schessinghausen, as are my Homeyers and Luhrings, and a host of other names I am researching.
Just curious what names you are working on.
Please contact me at
Thank you,

Friedrich Moeller
Do you know any information regarding Friedrich Moeller who you show as being buried in Saint Peter's Lutheran Cemetery #1? My great-grandfather is Friedrich Moeller also, but was born in 1833 and died in 1893. I have been unable to find where he is buried. He lived in the area of Blair just south of Sparta. Thanks for the help.

Marie Mueller's grave
Hi Sheryll,
I noticed the grave marker image for Marie Mueller shows at the Saint Peters Lutheran Church Cemetery in Randolph county, IL. only her death in 1908. My understanding is that she was a twin to Anna, both daughters of William and Anna Mueller and Marie died as an infant so born and died in 1908.

Best Regards,
Doug Lockwood

RE: Wm. Heitmann Stone
Hi Sheryll,
Thank you for the reply and the offer to take over ownership of Wm Heitmann's memorial page. I had to look up what my responsibilities were in taking ownership. I couldn't picture myself coming from Southern California to Illinois to trim the grass around the monument stone, but I guess it's just seeing to the correct information and any photos the need to be added to the website page. Anyway you did all the work in putting his initial memorial together and I'm thankfull that you did. I can and will take ownership, if that's okay by you.
I have another photo of this monument taken somewhat farther away, that I received last year from a distant relative, I've never met, up in Idaho. He was the one who said that Wm.'s wife's name (Dora) was on the reverse of the stone. And like I said, she is buried in Santa Ana, CA near me here in SoCal.
Getting back to Illinois and seeing the monument for myself will happen at some point. I also found two more Heitmanns in this same cemetery. One, I know would have been my grandmother's sister who died as a child (Elsie 1894-1897). I'm guessing that the other, G.D.W. Heitmann is the relative that was already living in Illinois and who was to meet the two oldest Heitmann children when they arrived ahead of their parents and siblings, in May 1893. Unfortunatly this person died just prior to their arrvival, unbeknownst to them, and they had to fend for themselves until their parents arrived in November of that year. Sorry to run on, but I just figured this out as I was writing you. I had heard that it was a friend or relative that was to meet them and looking at the death date for this other Heitmann, it fits the story.
Thanks again for the the offer and I will take it.
