RE: Isabelle May Schmidt Smith
I found the marriage license for Isabelle and Ralph and it does say that her parents were John H Schmidt and Mary Leibher, the same parents as Mary Josephine, Ralph's mother, so I think he really did marry his aunt. Here's a link to the marriage record: and here's the source for Mary Josephine's marriage record, listing the same parents: Ohio-EASy , GS Film number: 909007 , Reference ID: 30

RE: Nivens, Mtn View, Alberta
You're welcome for the transfers - I'd prefer the records were in the care of family.

Info - a/o memorial in Pictou County, Nova Scotia - I don't know if you've discovered this free online source for birth/death/marriages in Nova Scotia but you may find some help here:

Good luck!

Isabelle May Schmidt Smith
According to the information on Isabelle May Schmidt Smith, Ralph F. Smith, and Mary Josephine Schmidt Smith's findagrave web pages, Ralph married his Aunt Isabelle (her 2nd marriage), his mother Mary's sister?

Hi Ken - I've transferred the records to your care. Please be in touch if there are any other family records that would be helpful.

Those are the only cemeteries I know of that would be in the Jennings area.

RE: laubenthals & Dahlquist, Cadillac area
Arvid & Helen are both in Mt Carmel cemetery too. Went to the library and found the records done by the historical society back in 1989 and they were listed there. Snow on the ground right now is preventing a trip out there to get there photos, but supposed to warm up later this week.

RE: Deitzen/Dietzen
You are right. Many families chose different spellings of the same name. And church & cemetery scribes often spelled names to suit themselves as well. I agree the name should always match the headstone (not the records) if possible. Photos will tell us for sure how Nicholaus should be memorialized! Thanks for adding the bio. As long as the links remain, its all the same to me. Happy Holidays to you...., Henny
