|Bio and Links|
|I have been doing family history for over 40 years and I do understand that elation when one finds information about their family. For over 6 years now I have tried to do my share in documenting grave sites in any cemetery that I am near. I hope that my efforts have helped some to actually see the grave site of a family member that they never knew the location of or could never hope to visit. I spend many hours doing the photography and even cleaning up the weed choked sites. Also I go the extra mile and try to find more documentation and information about the person.|
It is not my intent to construct an instant family tree for anyone to claim; but, please, do not minimize or negate the time and efforts I put forth. I am always cooperative in making corrections or adding information to a site but prefer not to make transfers except under certain circumstances.

Im sorry to say that you sent me a SAC for Mr. Hopper on March 15, 2013, I found that SAC today.
The only thing I cannot do is link his mother, Lovena. If you see the copy and paste below, the number for her does not exist. I tried to find Lovenda Hopper, but no record either.
Middle name is Wagner
Please link with his mother Lovenda # 3534009
Dates are b Sep 2, 1883 Meadville, Linn county, Missouri
d Nov 7, 1965
father was William Thomas Hopper
Again, I am so sorry for this getting lost.

My information came from Jane Teschke, whose sources pointed to Charlotte Melchert Clemens Lau as Wilhelmine Melchert Schwichtenberg's older sister. Wilhelmine came with their father, and her own family, on the ship Hohenstaufen in 1881 and settled in Waterville. In the 1885 Minnesota census, their brother August (Germans often used their second name as their moniker) is living with Charlotte and Ernst Lau in Mendota, Dakota, MN. He was 50+ at the time, and we are not sure why he was with them, rather than with his family in Morristown, MN (illness? separation). He died in Morristown in 1892 according to Jane's records and the book she wrote on the Schwichtenbergs.

Info from # 47854913
Spoke with James France's son James in Cassville, Wisconsin. He told me that when his father died, they completed the stone with his dates, but he is not buried with first wife Serene Meicher. They buried him according to his wishes, in the Milton Cemetery in Rock County, Wisconsin. James' 2nd wife Tilda Lee Banks France died and was buried there last May. Supposedly James France has some kind of military plaque and a France nephew who works with cemeteries mounted it in a cement base. I find that he is not mentioned in the FindAGrave for the Milton Cemetery but that may be because the plaque was added at a later date.
-Stone pictured is not at Milton Cemetery.
Does Serene Meicher have a F.A.G. memorial?
Do you wish to make a cenotaph for this stone in the other cemetery? Let me know what is to be done.

Thanks for the picture of the head stone of the Dad I never new. I now know he is resting in peace

Thank you so much for the lovely picture of George and Brendice Cornell's headstone and thank you for taking over their memorials for me.
Thanks for checking on Horace Eastman. I've come to the same conclusion that he was married twice.
I've come across two memorials that I believe are the same person with one being in Tucson, AZ and the other being in Anna, IL.
I see Horace G. Eastman #42194717 with nearly identical information for a Horace G. Eastman #42194717.
The dates are essentially identical and the spouse has the same name.
I suspect only a relatively close family member would know the real story.
It's a mystery to me.

Thanks for the Grave Marker photo for Herbert Bauch.
