RE: Hattie Arndt Geisler
Hello Robert,
Thanks for updating this so quickly. I have a story to tell.....the Starke County History book (page 456) gives information on Fred Arndt, who was a local farmer just across the county line. Fred is a son of Christian Arndt (where he spent his last years). The story is that Christian and his wife and son and daughter immigrated, the wife was buried at sea, and he began his life on the farm as a single parent until he remarried. Mrs. John Geisler is listed as a child of Christian Arndt. Also, "Crist Arndt" is listed as father of Hattie on her death certificate but no mother's name is listed.

As always, these stories are certainly more interesting to those of us who are descendants.

Thanks again. Anything I can do to help you out, please let me know.

Hattie Arndt Geisler
Hello Robert, Thank you for posting the above referenced on Can you correct the spelling of her maiden name to "Arndt." Her father, Christian Arndt, is buried in Starke County along with her brother.

Thanks very much for your efforts. It is greatly appreciated.

Two questions/Union Mills
Hello Robert,
I posted a photo of a stone for what I believe are twin boys from O & L Chambers. It is located in Row 15 West side. You have entered one of the children on Find A Grave - Marietta Chambers but there is no listing on Find A Grave nor in the county online for Chilander Chambers whose DOD may be Oct 1 1886. Look at the photo I left for Marietta on Find A Grave. At the very bottom you can make out "children of O & L Chambers"

Another set of children for JL & YC (that is what I make out) Druper is what is listed in the county online. On Find A Grave you have one son JAY listed as Draper. There is another son Johnnie. Do you know the correct last name? I did add a photo for Jay on Find A Grave. Any help on these two would be appreciated.

RE: photos at Union Mills
Good Morning Robert,

I appreciate your note to me. I also have seen the work you have done at the cemetery and the online site. I appreciate that you are adding so many as I have taken many photos of memorials that had not yet been added to Find A Grave.

The other one seems to be more complete and includes photographs.
