Wittstruck Memorial Foundation (WMF):|
Any contributions (pictures or notes) I am able to make available can be used in your best interest.
Granville, North Dakota ~ My wife has come to understand my obsession for recording headstones, uncover Markers and link lost family members. We have dug four to six inches in the ground for some and survived the bushes for others. We have learned together what tools we need to carry besides a camera. We feel it is a way of showing respect for those just found for their family and friends that are to far away to do this themselves. Lisa and I enjoy the time together as well.
My obsession started when I returned from Beirut in 1983 (Operation Peacekeeper – U.S.M.C.). Seeing the bodies of those left in the streets is what gave me the passion to do what I can for the families of loved ones here at home. Thus started the beginning of the Wittstruck Memorial Foundation. Some of the stories are indeed sad, but most are uplifting if not funny. All are satisfying to say the least.

The cemetery has no record of his burial. Would you happen to have the plot #? We're trying to photograph all the graves. Thanks for your help.

|M (Dillon) Goddard||RE: Memorial# 110731526|
Sure Thank you.
|M (Dillon) Goddard||Memorial# 110731526|
I need to send my apologizes. I went thru all the papers from Aunt Ethel. I checked Ancestry, census and even called a cousin on Uncle Tim's side.
I was mistaken. Samuel Walter Bennett was Uncle Tim's brother. He did have a sister (Maude) and another brother that died at age 3 (Ivan).
I have worked since 1977 on genealogy and Uncle Tim nor Aunt Ethel ever mentioned anyone in Tim's family other than his older brother.
Would you be so kind as to add Memorial# 110731526 back as a son of George Sumner Bennett and Barsheba Jane Taylor.
Again I apologize for jumping the gun and not doing my research ahead of time.
|M (Dillon) Goddard||RE: Samuel Walter Bennett|
I need to check Aunt Ethels papers. Uncle Tim had a brother that was about 20 years older than him. Uncle Tim was a young boy when his parents died. He lived with his brother and wife in the family home which was left to Uncle Tim uncle he became of age.
I never really researched Uncle Tim's family since I am related thru Aunt Ethel however it appears I need to do so. I looked at some census and find with these parents a couple other children making me think maybe these are not his parents.
Anyway - I need to look into Uncle Tim's side more thoroughly.
|M (Dillon) Goddard||RE: Samuel Walter Bennett|
Sorry I have no idea who Samuel Bennett is.
|M (Dillon) Goddard||Samuel Walter Bennett|
Can you tell me why you think Sam is the son of:
George Sumner Bennett (1843 - 1917)
Barsheba Jane Taylor Bennett (1858 - 1906)
It was my understanding that Uncle Tim (Bennett) had only one older brother.
Uncle Tim: Memorial# 110731529
|Ray Ammon||Thank you|
Thank you for what you are doing to preserve the memories. Our mother just passed away in Washington state and we will be taking her back to the cemetery in Golden Valley. It was so nice to see a picture of the marker for Mom & Dad. It would be nice to be able to do a virtual tour of the cemetery also. Thanks again for what you are doing.
You found this grave marker for us some time ago but I don't think I said "thank you" yet.
I really appreciate you taking the time to find the grave and take a picture. You're good people.
Wendelin Highberger in St Teresa cemetery Anderson Co KS... Thanks, don't know where I got that number.

the photo added to this man's grave is for twin babies born on April 4 1884 and one died same day the other on April 5. This memorial is a mess, I took the info from the newspaper obit now family members are telling me his name is something different. Not sure what to do. but would appreciate it if you would remove the photo. It will not allow me to remove it.
