RE: Gerd Muller
I really don't have the online resources to go back much farther than 1800, so that's why I was asking. If you do go to SLC and find anything useful, then please let me know.

RE: Gerd Muller
Gerd Muller 1788, was as far back that I had so thanks for this new information.

RE: Gerd Muller
Yes, I'm related to the Mullers of Cole Camp. There are several Gerd Muller's. Gerd is short for Garret/Garhardt. I'm related to Gerd Muller (1788-1870), Gerd Muller (1824-1887), Henry Muller (1850-1909), Garhardt Muller (1871-1909), Luther Miller(1903-1963). Luther Miller is my grandfather.

Which Gerd Muller are you referring to?

Heckert in Wisconsin
Hi Kathy,

Hi cousin? Michael Heckert and Anna Sophia Brot were my 3x great grandparents. It's confusing with limited access to records and lots of misspellings, and errors in the oft cited "History of Outagamie County" Heckert bio. But there was also a separate group - if you look at the 1860 census, the Herkers were definitely a separate family from the Heckerts right next door (whether their name is misspelled or not and if we're related are my questions). I don't know of Eldred Heckert. My grandmother was Elisabeth Marion Pfeil O'Brian #128198380 and you can follow my Heckert line from her memorial. Which child of Michael is your line?. I look forward to staying in touch, my email is if you want to exchange info.

Cheers, Arb

Elbert A. Heckert
I have an old photo that was in with my deceased dad's WWII stuff. It is of a makeshift Marine cemetery, I believe to be in the Mariana Islands in the Pacific.

On one of the crosses near the front, I can clearly make out Elbert's name. This would have been his initial resting place upon being killed in action.

If you would like a copy of the photo, I would be honored to share it with you. Please email me at and I'll be happy to send it to you.

RE: Dobberpuhl
I can send you articles about Founders cemetery but I will need your email address. You can access the cementery article by going to google and put in founders cemetery cedarburg, wi, the article written by Carol Boettcher is the one you should look for. It also lists all the people burried in the cemetery. I will still get you the closeups if I can because the is a very large steel fence around the stone. Good luck and God Bless. Glenn

RE: Dobberpuhl
I will get the pictures when the snow melts a little. The cemetery is built on lanonstone and they could not dig any more graves on this site. We have an article about the cemetery and if I can find it I'll send it to you. Glenn
