|Bio and Links|
I began researching my family when I was in a college. In my Wisconsin History class our term paper was to write our family history and how the family was affected by Wisconsin events. From there I became addicted to genealogy and now have over 57,000 names in my database. The main families that I am researching are: Redmond, Boettcher, Anderl, Saltzgaber, Flug, Bresina, Holmes & Hurd.|

|Judith Zemke||Glenn Wesenberg #24768450|
I am in the process of adding grave photos at Peace Lutheran Cemetery in Oshkosh. For the memorial for Glenn Wesenberg #24768450 there is already an obituary added by Bonita Guarino and a photo added by you. I have sent an email to Bonita telling her that the obituary is for a different Glenn Wesenberg based upon birth and death dates noted and wife listed. The links to parents and are also for the other Glen Wesenberg. I wanted to apprise you of this because I don't know if the photo you added is for the Glenn Wesenberg at Peace or for the other person noted in the obit.
The Glenn Wesenberg at Peace is the son of George and Clara Wesenberg and brother of Ronald Wesenberg. Their joint head stone is right next to that of Glenn and his wife Louise.
I am doing family history research for my nephew and godson, Bradford Prescott Redmond. He lives in Maine. His father is Patrick Redmond, originally from Chippewa Falls, the son of Daniel Redmond. Dan's father was Thomas Spencer Redmond, who was the son of Prescott (hence Bradford's middle name).
I have a fairly good amount of research done on that part of the family. I was just interested to see how you and he were related. What is your direct line to Prescott?

Thank you for Mary's obituary. By any chance do you know what newspaper it is from?

Thank you very much for George Kurth's obituary! I had not found the name of his son and granddaughter before.

Thank you for suggesting Mr. Saltzgaber may qualify for a famous person rating. I will e-mail Famous@findagrave.com in hopes they will consider him. I have another one pending, on one Charles William Clark, #125980963, from back in April. The
FAQs help section states it may take several days so they must have declined Mr. Clark. I will submit Mr. Saltzgaber to them as I believe you are correct, I think he deserves a fame rating as well. Thank you!
Glad to transfer. Orris's wife is my mothers first cousin so we have something in common.
Thank you! I've had some of those Nunke's for awhile but had only the basic census information. It's wonderful to find the marriage information for the girls. They are always harder to find.

Are you related to the Nunke's? My husband is a Nuenke it's same ancestor but his line changed the spelling for some reason.

Hi Brent, Can you tell me who to contact about the stone on the grave of Frank Braden? He died in 1939 and it is much newer. Because of the 'Our faithful servant' I suspect some member of the Boettcher family may have put it there. Would like to conact anyone who might know about the stone, funeral, anything at all.
Thank you, Maureen, great-grand niece.
