RE: Hi Susanne, Sorryy for the confusion. The request does not close when I add the photo via transcription and the admin will close it this way. I'm working on the list at St. Boniface and I want to close the requests as I complete them. Amelia is buried between Theresa Lesage and Henry Reiff just beyond the raised Reiff stone. Check the memorial for Henry for an explanation. There were no other Donahue stones at the site.
RE: Hi LarryW, Hi Sherri, We traded emails a couple of years ago; good to be in touch again.
Yes, as near as I can determine he actually rode from SD to Nebraska -- when he was in his 70s!
My great-great grandfather was August Werner. John's niece Cora Warner Wake was my grandmother.
Concerning William Frederick Warner: you've probably seen in the White Family Record that he was known to be in Texas at one time (but later in Washington Territory).
I recently found a Texas death certificate for Frederick William Warner, born Sept 4, 1848 in Germany, son of Jacob and Julia. (his grave is at 46297552). I'm not 100% sure if it's actually him, since the WFR just lists his birth date as "1846", and this would involve him going back to Texas from Washington. His death certificate says he was divorced, so he could have returned to family there?
