|Bio and Links|
I have been working on my family history for 25 years. All of my ancestors are of German descent. The majority settled in Saginaw, Sebewaing and Scio Township, Michigan, even though there are family members scattered throughout the world. Genealogy is a never ending journey. That's what makes it so exciting! IT'S ALL IN THE JOURNEY!|

|Ken Rouston||RE: Lewless photos|
Thank you for the nice comments Norma. I am glad that the information helped you. Sorry the photos did not turn out as well as I would have liked. It was raining yesterday. I worked at Forest Lawn Cemetery for three summers while I went to college 1966-67-68, so I am quite familiar with the layout and I mowed the grass over the Lewless lot many times back then.

I have a picture of his son Adolph's children from a few years ago. I will see what I can do about getting it to you!
|M. Tietz||RE: Johann Bernhard|
In regards to Johann Bernhard Titz, it's stated that there is a hotel, restaurant & bar where they were lived. Have you been there? Do you have any info on it? A friend of mine is helping me and he thinks that this is it, since it still stands today, but we aren't 100% sure. https://www.google.com/maps/place/St%C4%99plewska+Gra%C5%BCyna.+Agroturystykaemail@example.com,15.6632297,16z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0000000000000000:0x691156bd7e2f4849

|Sandra Johnson Witt||RE: Bertha Grassmann Schairer|
Thank you for contacting me and connecting Bertha and her family with her parents (my great grandfather and his first wife, Friedericke Wilhelmine Witte Grassmann. I have no other photos of Bertha, unfortunately. There is more information about our Grassmann family on "Gall, Grassmann & Bolzmann Families from Northern Germany" - website: http://gallgrassmann.tribalpages.com/
Contact me if you have any questions.

All of the changes you have requested have been made, except the transfers.
Both sides of my husband's family have been living in this area for over 125 years and the Surname Ryan happens to be my mother-in-laws maiden name. So for the time being I will hang onto the Ryan's. I would be glad to make changes and updates as needed. I hope you understand.
Hi! You may want to start here:
This is a private library that is free to use in downtown Chicago. You just need a state/federal ID and proof of where you reside (see site for what they accept as ID).
The library does interlibrary loans, and you may want to talk to a librarian before visiting to ensure that they will be able to help you.
The Cook County Online Database is here:
This is a no-cost site and they have never sent me an e-mail in the many years I have been registered there.
Cook County will do a search for your for $15. Many of the oldest records do not appear on the site. In general, I would say that most records for the County before 1916 are not on the website yet (although they claim that records to 1872 are there). Any county records before 1872 were destroyed in the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.

Hi! I went to the Will County Clerk's Office (where Peotone is) since I don' live too far away. They have no record of death for Johann. I also looked through their old record books and did not see him there. I looked at both the spellings you gave and many other spellings. A summary of what I found is:
No Heydenreich, Heidenreich, or Hydenreich; no Hie..., no Hid..., no Hed..., no Hey..., and no Heinr...; for Heiden there was no John/Johann, etc.
There was the following deaths in their books:
Hyden, John C., Oct 14, 1903 (#11072)
Heidrich, John C., Feb 7 1928 (#34695)
Hinrichs, John, Mar 4, 1901 (#9116)
There were no Papenhagen or Pappenhagens.
There were the following deaths in their books for the last name of Poppenhagen:
Amelia, May 17 1921 (#27309)
Emma Kate, Jan 24, 1936 (#44758)
Henry Carl, Feb 21, 1936 (#44946)
Louis M., May 12, 1934 (#42612)
Sophia, Mar 9, 1923 (#26989)
There were no Schroders.
There were the following deaths in their books for the last name of Schroeder:
Sophia, Nov 24, 1907 (#14151)
Sophia, Apr 20, 1933 (#41330)
Sophie, May 19, 1905 (#12449)
Sophie, Sep 10, 1928 (#35401)
There were no Johan or Johann for the last name.
There was one John Friederichs, Nov 24, 1895 (#5960) and one John Friedrich, Apr 18, 1915 (#19778).
All dates above are the dates of death and the # is the chronological order of the death in the county starting with their records in 1877.
When I started questioning them about their death indexes that are available to the public, it turns out that they are incomplete and only contain deaths up to about 1937. They then offered to look up Johann in their file room.
Even though there was nothing specifically for Johann, I hope this information might help you out in your search.

Norma, The emblems on Karl and Henry's headstones are the Masonic symbol, which indicates they both where members of the Masonic Organization. We also found a headstone for Henry's wife Marie 1886-1931. The headstone has a star on it which is the symbol for the Order of the Eastern Star, part of the Masons. Create a memorial for Marie and I will post the photo of her headstone. There were no other Heidenreich graves other than the 3 in the immediate area. Have a great day. Judy
