JUNE 2014 UPDATE: Approximately 13,000 Memorials (for various cemeteries in southern Wisconsin) were transferred to me from THIS CONTRIBUTOR. They were originally added by this INACTIVE Contributor. I am gradually working on fixing many errors & duplicates, and making corrections as I can determine. By all means, willing to transfer to family and/or others who have more information. Just ask.

RE: Question
Thank you for asking about the Anderson marker, possibly Elizabeth Baker Ducomb who m. 23 Apr. 1841 to Geoerge Anderson.She was age 57 at that time, and was dead prior to 8 Feb. 1862 when George m. Euphenia B. Sinclair.

I am not 100% positive this stone was for his 2nd wife, Elizabeth (he m. 3 times).
Yes, you may transfer the memorial of Richard L. Anderson to me. Thank you.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to locate the cemetery stone of George Anderson, apparently quite well known in that county. Thank you.

Thanks for the compliment. It's appreciated. You have accomplished a great deal here, and in a much shorter time period. I've placed as many family photos and stories on Findagrave as I could. I hope they survive because Findagrave is possibly the most permanent record available to me. I hope they survive.

RE: Emil Gensmer
Thanks for all of your help, you're a lifesaver to me...this gets too difficult with "Findagrave's" rules of which I don't agree with....sorry, just venting.

site for Frank J Vogel
On Frank J Vogel's Find A Grave site, Beatrice S McGowan Duquaine is listed as his 2nd spouse. Her obituary, on her site, states that she married Francis Vogel 20 Oct 1984 in Oconto & he died 26 July 1985.
However, according to the Wisconsin death index, Frank J Vogel died 10 Feb 1985 in Manitowoc co. In that same index, there is a Francis Holmes Vogel who died in Oconto 7/26/1985.

This evidence would suggest that she should be removed from the Francis J Vogel site as his 2nd spouse.

I processed the updates. I like your theory about the birth date. It sounds entirely possible to me.

It reminds of the birth year on the marker for one of my great grandmothers. Her marker lists year of birth as 1859. I kept finding a bunch of different years of birth for her : 1856, 1857, 1858, and 1859. Finally I made a list of all the sources and the year of birth. This was the conclusion I came to: the older she got - the younger she got!

I never met her, but I think we would have gotten along just fine.

Thank you again for transferring this fellow to me. He is my great-great-grandfather. I have found more information on him, including his Civil War service, and have been able to fill in more of his life and begin to connect him with other family. Bless you!

Thanks for the offer to transfer three memorials: 112235149, 112235560 and 112235702.

Thomas Hodkinson married a niece of my great-great-grandfather's, so I'm actually no relation of his family's at all. If you wish to transfer them, I'll be happy to take them, but with the caveat that if any actual relatives come looking I'll be just as happy to pass them along to them.

[Excuse the previous blank reply.]

Howard Norman
Looks like we are in similar ships! I also "inherited" a cemetery to maintain. However mine is much, much, much smaller than your undertaking! Got your request to update Howard Norman's parents in the Bakertown Baptist Cemetery. Have accepted the change. Just wanted to let you know I'm working with Find A Grave to remove the wrong photo (Carl Ingold) that is currently on Howard Norman's memorial and I will be adding a new correct photo. Several memorials, all in a row, where entered wrong in the original entries. Photos were all off by one grave. I think Howard Norman is my last. Just have to get Find A Grave to remove some that are on the wrong memorials.

RE: Edward & Katherine Schneider
It appears that you have solved the mystery and have saved me a lot of time searching in Milwaukee. I greatly appreciate your help! My last clue left was to check the Marriages in Milwaukee on the web site but ran out of time the other night. Thanks again, your time is surely appreciated.
