Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Illinois and love genealogy and find a grave. I like to try and fulfill any requests for fag and am willing to help anyone who needs it.
I am willing to transfer any sites I do to family members. Lately I am getting emails asking about information on some people that I have input. Please use the EDIT BUTTON. I am not into how many photos I can post with the information like it is some kind of race to do the most. I just want to do the best job I can and I am always open for suggestions on my errors when asked.
This is a great site for people looking for genealogy family and for loved ones.

Thank you for the obituary posting for Virginia Williams Ehrman and other family members. Her mother was my g-g-g-grandmother and as you can see the name has been passed down through the generations.

RE: laura edgecombe
Clara also spelled Freemon with an "o" like her dad. Thanks for making the correction.

BTW her son listed as Leonard died at 16, so death date is incorrect. I've submitted the correct dates on an edit request. He went by the name Little Lenn as shown on the gravestone.

incorrect name
Clara Freeman Edgecombe was my grandmother. Laura was NOT her middle name. Her daughter was Clara Laura Edgecombe. So I'm not sure what information you could have that would indicate otherwise. Even her gravestone doesn't say Clara Laura!

RE: Lourena Dare
How can they merge her if there is only one memorial? If I have a duplicate memorial then by all means send me the Find A Grave number and I will take mine down if it was placed afterwards.
How can you just come in and take someones memorial all you had to do was ask and I would have transferred her.

RE: wilhelmina Krekel
There is a 12 Nov 1891 Des Moines Co., Iowa, marriage record for 65 year old Jacob Krekel, son of Heinrich and Johanne (Linkenbach) Krekel, to 49 year old Catherine Schollberger Glaser, daughter of Johannes and Dorothea (Schwilk) Schollberger.

52 year old Catherine Krekel appears in the 1895 Iowa census living in Des Moines Co. with 68 year old retired farmer, Jacob Krekel. The household listed immediately previously is that of 34 year old Louis Krekel and 22 year old Wilhelmina Krekel. In this household are Fabian Krekel, 10, August Krekel, 7, Lewis Krekel, 5, Fredric Krekel, 3, William Krekel, 7, and unnamed Krekel, 0. I trust Wilhelmina was not the mother of all of these children.

52 year old Katherena M Krekel appears in the 1900 US Census living in Burlington Twp, Des Moines Co., Iowa with her 74 year old retired farmer husband, Jacob Krekel, and their 12 year old grandson, William Krekel. She's shown as the mother of 3, 2 still living. She and Jacob were born in Germany, he coming to America in 1844, she in 1877.

Her 18 Oct 1912 Iowa death record lists her father's name as Scholenberger.

It appears Catherine was the second wife of Jacob Krekel, she having previously been married to Christian Glasser. It would appear that she was Wilhelmina Krekel's mother, Wilhelmina having been the second wife of Jacob Krekel's son, Louis.

Perhaps the information above along with the biography on Louis Krekel's findagrave memorial will set things right. He's memorial #70722573.
