Thank you so much for the picture. I am currently creating an "In Memoriam" book for the USS Sea Poacher (SS-406) shipmates that have entered their Eternal Patrol.

Thank you very much for taking the time to go to cemetery to take photo of Johniah Quick #63171980. I am sorry that there was no stone on the grave. I would not have requested a photo if I had known this. Thank you again.

Carlton Craighead in recent years was restoring the William Wehner mansion in California.On February 26,2006 Carlton wrote that William's daughter Ida was 101 when she died (June 1874/2-4-1975).Carlton had visited some Wehner relatives in California, and wrote:"I have some more names related to Ida:Charles Franklin of Fresno;Wanda Babcock of San Carlos;Mary E.Kropf from Milwaukee;Virgil William Kropf." The 1860 US Federal Census in Milwaukee features Gustave Adolph Stuetze (46),his wife Elizabeth (37) and daughters Emilie Charlotte(16--Mrs Charles Henry August Beverung);Augusta(14-Mrs August Theodor Zilisch,m.1866);Elisabeth(8(Mrs William Wehner,m.1872);Ida (4-Mrs.Hermann Rendtorff,m.1875),and Pauline Laura (1--Mrs.Henry Nuelsen,m.1878). I am writing the first book from the American point of view about 19th century rotunda panoramas.These were the biggest paintings in the world, 50 x 400=20,000 square feet, housed in their own rotundas which were 16-sided polygons. Chicago in 1893 had 6 panorama companies and 6 panorama rotundas. On September 18,2003 I found in the display case of Milwaukee County Historical Society the F.W.Heine diaries 1879-1921. These highly illustrated diaries document William Wehner's panorama company,studio located in downtown Milwaukee 1885-1888, which produced 2 units of BATTLE OF ATLANTA, 2 units of BATTLE OF MISSIONARY RIDGE & LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN and 3 units of JERUSALEM ON THE DAY OF THE CRUCIFIXION. The diaries needed to be transcribed in German, translated to English, scanned to computer.Michael Kutzer,born 1942 in Dresden like Heine, is transcriber on the Heine diary project. The F.W.Heine diaries are as important to the history of rotunda panorama as the letters of Theo and Vincent Van Gogh are important to the history of Post Impressionism. ALSO, a cache of some 300+ glass plate negatives by panorama artist Bernhard Schneider (1843-1907) were found in Cedarburg; these document the Wehner panorama company, Milwaukee and Cedarburg.//My great aunt, Mathilde Georgine Schley (1864-1941)WHO GREW UP IN MAYVILLE (to 1878)was an artist-model with Wehner's company.Tilde's diaries (1899-1941) tell of taking a bus trip to Mayville in 1930 and visiting the ZILISCH family.I WANT TO CONTACT MEMBERS OF THIS FAMILY--much information to email@example.com
