My name is Jeanette and I have been very interested in looking up my family tree all my life, though I didn't get started until 2005 when I was 16. If you have any questions please feel free to ask them.
Mathew Hamilton's death date was 1905 according to two WI state death records to be found at famlysearch.org. One record gives just the year of his death, the other gives 6 Jul 1905. One record gives a birth year of Jul 1932. The other record does not give a birth year.
Moreover, Mathew is listed in the 1900 federal census and in the 1905 WI state census, as head of his family. The images of these censuses can be downloaded from familysearch.org.
I think the wrong year is on the gravestone. Could it be 1805, not 1885, the stonecarver simply having forgotten that it was a new century??
Re: Monument Photos needed in Dartford Cem. Dear Jeanette, I noticed that you have taken photos in Dartford Cemetery Green Lake County, WI. Is there a possibility that you lived near there and could take photos if I gave you the names? Would appreciate hearing from you
Mr.Pelletier I have seen your request for Mr. Pelletier's headstone.I live right by there, I will take a look ,do you know if he is buried by himself or in a family plot?The cemetery is not that big, if I have no luck I could call the office during the week to check the location.The women who runs the office is really nice and I have lots of family in that cemetery too.
Herrbold I took a bunch of Herrbold tombstone photos in Bayside Cemetery about 5 years back. I am going to fulfill your requests, but I want you to notice the spelling difference. In my family file the name is Herrbold not Herbold (2 r's). I was wondering if you would change the memorial to reflect what is on the stone. How are you related? For me, Louisa Herrbold married Arthur Charles Stram (who is my great grand uncle). I descend through Art's brother Martin Stram, original family name Strom. I look forward to hearing from you. :) Mindy
I'm sorry! When I uploaded the August Ott photo I realized it isn't the same individual. It was Augusta Miller Ott (1855-1918). I'm sorry I "fulfilled" your photo request and it was incorrect. The only "Ott" I found in this cemetery was the one family monument that read "Joseph Ott" with 8 individuals listed on it.
I'm about to upload your photo request for Augusta Ott. On the family monument there are about 8 other names. If the memorials are created, I'll add the photos. If not, would you like to create them so I can add the photos?
William I Jenkins 1857-1927 Hello Jeanette, I have found the memorial you created for William I Jenkins who I believe is my 3rd great-grand uncle. The memorial shows that his wife is Ray S and I have his wife as Rachel Salisbury. The stone looks pretty eroded so maybe that is still a match? I am hoping to connect with Williams parents, Charles and Mary Jenkins. I am the descendant of Williams sister Mary Jenkins Burroughs. Can you tell me anything more about this cemetery, this burial, etc.? Thank you for any help or suggestions. Sincerely, Renae
