RE: Charles L Wilson
Yes her mother's maiden name was Leukert and one of her brothers was named Samuel. Now I will have to find out if they moved closer to be near Annie or vice versa. I know my Dad really missed his granddad when he moved from California to Idaho. Annie was born in Minnesota and her father was Able Leppert.

RE: Charles L Wilson
Back in November you wrote about Annie Wilson buried in Pinegrove Cemetery Rathdrum Idaho and was interested in her maiden name. I have found her in the death index in Idaho and it says her maiden name is Leppert. She was my great grandfathers 2nd wife.

Grave Marker
Hello, Odette. This is going to be a strange message, but I picked up a load of rock from one of the spots in Sioux Falls, SD where they're taking out old railroad track, and to my enormous surprise, when I got home, I found an old (VERY old) grave marker amongst the limestone rocks I picked up. It took a little doing to track down the information, but I believe the marker belongs to a member of your distant family. THe grave marker reads "AMMUS son of R. and M. KLATT, born May 31, 1896, Died August 3, 1903. It's a tall, slender obelisk-style stone, very typical of the grave markers used for children, so I am fairly confident in saying that it's the original marker for Amus' grave.

I don't know how or why the stone ended up in a pile of railroad rubble, but I would really like to connect with someone from your family, or at least with the cemetery that holds Ammus' grave, so I can return the stone to them. I suppose I should offer some explanation for why I'm tracking you down, and why I feel so compelled to find a way to get the stone back to its proper resting place. I'm of German-Russian descent, and visited Ukraine about 5 years ago, looking for the graves of my ancestors there. imagine my dismay when I learned that the headstones of all Germans were torn from their grave sites, and used as building blocks after the Bolshevik revolution. There was no trace of the cemetaries at all... in fact, we thought we were in the wrong location, until one of those I was traveling with found a single headstone, being used to prop up a fence line in someone's pasture. So sad. Anyway - if you can help me to reach out to relatives in this area, I'm happy to help get hte stone back to its proper place!

Best regards

Thank you for adding my great-uncle Titus Wood's obit & grave marker photo! I did see the marker before, but am revisiting some of his data, and just saw the obit now. Appreciate the additional piece of paper for my genealogy files. :D

Thank You for making the correction and link on Elvin's memorial.

You might want a note that some records on Elvin his name is spelt Alvin.

Thanks for your message, it's notes like that one that makes the volunteer time rewarding. I'm very happy to hear that it was useful information for you.

I uploaded a headstone picture to the memorial page that you manage for Edward C Sharp (107822000).
I didn't see a page for his wife Helen (126486397) so I made one for her. I didn't know if this was someone that you're researching, so I thought I would leave you a note so you knew that a new picture was uploaded.

RE: John Redmon Coleman
Yes, Sarah's parents were James Isbell and Eda Riggins. James's father was Levi. If you'd like to communicate directly, just send me your email and I can provide more info and photos. And you know John's father married sisters, right? Sarah's sister was John's stepmother, a wicked cruel woman.

I requested another photo of memorial #13790368 as I could not read the one you took. Would you be willing to go to the memorial and delete the photo you took? I sure would appreciate it. Thank you so much.
