Hello, my name is Karl Stelly. I'm 60 years old, and I'm originally from Lafayette, Louisiana. I've lived in Baytown, Texas, Tulare, California, Great Falls, Montana, Killeen, Texas, Manassas, Virginia, and Louisville, Kentucky. I moved to Gettysburg with my fiance about 8 years ago. I enjoy roaming the battlefield and photography, and studying the history of Gettysburg and the Civil War. I have quite a few photographs of Gettysburg and other Civil War battlefields and other historic sites posted on Google Earth. I use the name "Seven Stars" on Panoramio and Google Earth. If you see photos there by "Seven Stars," that's me!

RE: possible photo for grave in Gettysburg annex?
Sorry Karl - that gate is not the same gate we went in. I just looked at it closer in the pic.

Sorry I mislead you.

Hi Karl,
Thanks so much for your help. Actually there is a page started for her, which is weird, and dated yesterday. Her info is there. Just no pic of the gravestone.

Mary Louise Via Brandt

Odd! Her memorial #144719316.

Gettysburg Annex Site H-5. It's not too far inside the pictured gate on the page to the right. Wasn't sure of north-etc directions when we were there.

No hurry, just appreciate since I'm in Colorado.

Thanks so much.

Hi Karl,
It looks like you have already started a page for her. Bless you! It was actually started yesterday according to the date on the page.
Mary Louise Via Brandt

If, when you're walking about there in the annex, would you take a picture of her/their stone. Not sure if they were going to redo my dad's stone (Durward Brandt - 1917-1968) or just add a stone to his.

It's in the Annex, Site H-5.

Thanks so much. Just checking on her!

possible photo for grave in Gettysburg annex?
Hi Karl,
you posted a photo of my dad's grave in the Gettysburg Annex, H-5. My mom has now been buried with him and Gettysburg said they would be putting a new stone there. I'm not sure how fast they act on this but if you're in the Annex would you check and take a photo please? Her name is Mary Louise Brandt. Died November, 2014. His name is Durward Brandt.
thank you and I would be glad to contribute to this.
No rush, just when you're in the area.
Thank you so much.

Jeremiah Reimel
Thank you so much for the information on my Great great grandfather! No wonder I couldn't find his grave! It was always thought and told that he was buried at Gettysburg!! I know there is a John Reimel buried there who may be related but I did not know that Jeremiah was not buried there. That explains a lot!

Many thanks to you again!

Kari, you took a picture for me of this grave at Gettysburg National Cemetery. You posted a close-up of the writing on his marker. Do you recall if there were wings on the grave?

Many thanks for your efforts!
