RE: Julia Courter
Ok, it was just submitted. When you look at the plaque, she is # 21 on the list (first column at the bottom). There is no date information on it. Probably will have to contact the cemetery about that.

Julia Courter
Hi, regarding your request for Julia Courter #85096712 gravestone in Ashley Union cemetery in Ashley, Delaware County, Ohio. She was first interred inside a mausoleum in the cemetery. For some reason damage came about the mausoleum and they had to reinterr the bodies into the ground. They only have a memorial marker for all the bodies that they had to move. No individual markers. Would you like for me to submit the memorial marker for your request since it is the only thing she has left now. My suspicion is that it was damaged due to mother nature and a tree falling on the mausoleum. Thanks

Peter Stilp
I always thought Peter Stilp was my GGGG Uncle but going through the names I wonder if he is a more direct line. My grandfather was Thomas Mathias Stilp. His parents were John Stilp and Elizabeth (Lizzie) Cox. John owned a tobacco shop in Appleton. His siblings were Barbara and Eddie. My mother has a couple personal effects of Peter from his military days. The one question we have is our family story involves Peter Stilp fighting for and then against Napoleon. Has anyone heard that?

RE: Powers photos
You are welcome. When I visit a cemetery looking for my own relatives, I take as many photos as I have time for.

You are correct. I was able to find this mystery woman in Iowa where she should have been. She forgot to get a divorce before remarrying, but I've found her grave in Iowa.
Thanks for your patience! :-)

Lena Stilp
I have this week found records that connect my G-Gmother Lena Stilp to Mathias Stilp, her father.

She was married twice and at some point went by Helena/Helen Steelp. The first marriage was to my G-Gfather.

She is a sister to John, Jacob and Mary and perhaps Cecelia Stilp. Daughter of Mathias and Lena/Helena Cirbes.

RE: Stilps?
I have only seen Stilps in Wisconsin in the US. I don't know her parents. Her marriage cert. had her listed as 22 years old at the time of marriage.
Family story goes as follows....(take with a grain of salt)

Lena Stilp married Henry Atchison Holmes (my grandfather) in 1890 in Cresco, Howard County, Iowa.

In 1891 my grandfather, Robert Wesley Holmes was born to them. About two years later, a Catholic priest came to their home and told them that the baby (my grandfather) was illegitimate as their marriage was not done in the Catholic Church. Lena was suppose to be from a Catholic background.

The story then says, Lena left both her husband and child at that time.

My father and his sister both remember a trip with their parents to go visit Lena in the 1930's "somewhere in Iowa". Another and much older aunt was familiar with this story and said when they went to visit Lena that it was because Lena was offering to leave her house to her son (my grandfather). All we know for sure was that my grandfather went to the door of the house she was living in and she talked to him at the door. A few minutes later he got back into the car. That's the whole story. No happy reconciliation from what I understand.

I wish I knew who her parents were. I did look in Wisconsin just in case, for any record of her death etc. Nothing.

I have a great-grandmother who had the maiden name of Lena Stilp. I've only found her on a marriage record and the death certificate of her son (my grandfather). She was born 1868. She may have been born in Germany, but I'm unable to confirm that.
She was married in Cresco, Iowa. Close to Wisconson/Minnesota state lines.

Please contact me. I hope we can help each other.
