Thanks
Thank you so much for taking the picture of William and his wife Nancy Brown's graves. I was surprised and saddened to see their stone is broken in pieces.

Thank you so much for your time and costs to drive to the cemetery to take the picture.

I appreciate your help. You are a giving person.

RE: Help
I am looking for the place of burial for a William Schrumpf who died at his home in Wayne on 18 Jun 1928, also his wife Jennie nee Workman. I created a memorial for him 139995408 but have no place of burial. I have his obit this was published in his home town paper in Highland IL, but it only states the services were held at his home under the auspices of the Masonic Lodge.
Thanks Russ Marti

RE: Greenwood Cemetery photos
Surprisingly, both of my parents, and all of my grandparents and great-grandparents are from the Knox, Pierce, Wayne and surrounding county areas. I currently have over 65,000 people connected in my family tree. If you are rooted in the area, possibly even you! I don't get back there but once a year at best, so I really appreciate your work in the area. May I have your permission to use your photos on Ancestry.com?

Hello Brad,
Thank you so much for the excellent detective work that solved the mystery of Louis's gravestone location. I truly appreciate each and every photo you have taken. I know they are not easy to find. Sorry for the delay on the thank you. I hope all is well with you and yours.

Heh Brad, just checking in, hope you had a good summer, It looks like someone has been busy taking photos at St. Wen's which is great, I am almost done adding the 1930 WPA Survey, have received numerous requests for more info, and some corrections, but heh that's part of the fun....best wishes, DC/Gilly

RE: Henry & Amelia
THANKS! I saw some examples recently where someone used a detachable flash for some pretty fantastic results. Headstones can be a real challenge!

Thanks for transfer of Tony Sears in Yellow Smoke
I appreciate this--and also I thank you for the "flower" you added (that is now in my scrapbook too). It was kind of sad that his mother died just a few days after he did.

RE: Elisabeth Hochstein
Hi Brad,

I sent to Hartington Library for her obituary but I have NO doubt that Elizabeth (Foerster) Hochstein is the wife of Joseph Hochstein

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=66575955

and that the biography was incorrect. I also changed her name from Elizabeth to Elisabeth. The 1880 census has her name as Elisabeth.

My Elisabeth was born June 15, 1840 and died September 5, 1904.

Thanks so much!!!

RE: Elisabeth Hochstein
Elizabeth (Foerster) was born June 15 1840.

I got her death date from a book entitled FAMILIES OF SS. PETER AND PAUL, pgs 115, 116. It is possible they typed the wrong death date (September 9, 1911) because the birth date matches yours and she was not married to Anton.

You wrote: The other has dates of 6-15-1840 to 9-5-1904 so neither DOD matches the memorial.

THAT IS THE ONE!

I'll change the dates to match yours but leave the bio as it is and and (sic) after the death date they have.

I'll send for an obit.

Thanks Brad.

Hi Brad,
This is the third time I have tried to answer your email. We are having trouble with our server, I guess. At any rate I will try to be a clear as possible.

According to Esther Scott Sinclair's husband, two sons and one granddaughter, all three have written in their family records that Esther Scott Sinclair was buried on the South Dakota bluffs overlooking across the river onto River Sioux Park which Park was/is in Iowa. Mildred Sinclair Nolan tried to find the graves for us since she remembered her Father, George Sinclair taking the family many times to visit her grandmother's grave. We were unable to find the grave site due to time and weather taking its toll. Trees had grown and died, grass and soil blowing had changed the character of the soil. Ken and I were very disappointed to be unable to pinpoint the site. We wanted to have it marked. Mildred was our last hope. The others are all gone. She only searched in South Dakota, nowhere in Iowa.

Nowhere on the findagrave site do I see a reference to burial in Iowa. Do you have an obit I have been unable to find?

One other item: Do any of you know where Sioux Point, Dakota territory was located in 1860s and 1870s. I have references to that landing spot.

Thanks for your concern for accuracy. I share it too.

Sincerely,
Dorothy Sargent(#47197822)
