Shirt-tail Cousins Hi, David - Thanks for posting the notes about John T Foust and Maggie. They are my maternal great great grandparents as well. David E, their son was my grandfather and Arthur was my grandfather.
One issue that bothers me and the only record that isn't matching up is all the Census records and such show David as born in 1871, yet his gravestone in this same cemetery shows 1879. I am not 100% certain the 2 Davids are the same. If there is any light you can shed on this mystery, I would really appreciate it.
Thanks again and I will continue my research to see if I can solve this mystery.
The Fousts Hi David: Just found the images of the gravestones of John Tyler Foust and Margueritte Louisa Wayne Foust. They are my great-great grandparents, too. My gg-grandmother was Serena Foust Daugherty (I have seen many different spellings of her name). She and my great-grandfather, Ed Daugherty, are buried in the cemetery in Boscobel. I enjoy finding all of these postings; I need to visit the graves sometime in the near future. Thanks for posting these!
Heise I noticed your picture of Ludwig Heise, who is an ancestor of my cousins through Lotta Klitch and her daughter Clara Holtgreve. Do you have any more pictures like these? Do you know anymore about the Rabbe family (Lugwig's wife)? Thank you, Erica Lee Berquist
Jean Glick Many, many thx for your msg re: picture of Jean Glick's grave site. It is, indeed, possible that she never had one, as the family was quite poor at the time; however, I know she is buried there, so maybe her stone exists but is hard to find. Many thx for your efforts! S M Freed
RE: Nellie Bernhardt Thanks for trying. There was an Elizabeth Burnhardt that was buried in the same section and grave. I thought it might be her mother. But doing more research, I found that it wasn't.
recent photos David, I really appreciate the time and effort you have made in getting these photos especially in such a large cemetery. I have gotten one of my sisters interested in taking photos with me in a cemetery (5000+) here in Georgia. We will spend the whole day trying to get as many as we can. Sometimes there are over 100 requests. I try to get the whole family if there is a family plot. I have been able to help a lot of researchers by doing this. It is more time consuming and sometimes we get so involved and attached to these families that we have actually figured out connections for the family members in other locations in the cemetery. We have the best time together and LOVE doing this. We consider it to be a treasure hunt. I take pride in my pictures and like you, if I'm not happy, I will go back and take them again. So, from my whole heart . . . THANK YOU!
