Bio and Links
Bio Photo Most of the Prairie Home Cemetery data was downloaded directly from the cemetery's database and the database does have errors. (You might want to check various name spellings.) Their database is searchable here: Prairie Home Cemetery Database

Please feel free to use any photos I post for your own use, as long as it's not for profit.

And finally, if you've benefited from information found on Find-A-Grave, please consider paying it forward by becoming a photo volunteer. Headstones are disappearing through deterioration, damage or vandalism. And once they're gone, so is the history they document.

RE: Hannah Williams
I think that I have it figured out, but might need more verification. Hannah Williams was the daughter of Maurice and Hannah Williams. Their graves are also at Prairie Home Cemetery. In the June 1860 census, Maurice and Hannah are living in Milwaukee without their daughter. Mother Hannah died one month later. Little Hannah is living with her twin aunts in 1860.

Maurice later married Elizabeth Jones and had more children, including my step-great grandfather. Maurice also has a gravestone in Bethesda Cemetery, Winnebago County (with the same year dates as his grave in Waukesha).

The following book verifies Maurice Williams as the son of William William: "Oshkosh, Wisconsin, Welsh Settlement centennial, 1847-1947" page 33. "

Sadly, both Maurice and Elizabeth died, leaving their 5 children orphaned.

Hannah Williams
Do you know the parents of Hannah Williams? I think that she is my step-great grandfather's sister. His name is John M Williams. His obit says that his sister is Hannah Williams. Yesterday I found my old copy of "Black beauty" that i loved so much as a child. The inscription reads "To John M Williams from Hannah Williams, Waukesha Wisconsin, Nov 2nd AD 1894". My mother said that John Williams was the only grandfather that she knew. Thank you for your previous work and any help you can give to me.

Loral Perry Sparks #84494653
Thank you for your suggestion regarding Loral's parents Riley and Laura (Wilcox) Sparks. I do not have access to, but I did discover a free online family tree which contained the relevant information. It also filled in a few other blanks I had regarding this branch of my family. I have created a memorial for Loral's mother now that I know when she passed away and where she is buried.

I wish that you would reconsider my suggestion to link Loral to his parents and siblings so that his descendants may find their ancestors easily and free of charge. Thanks again for your assistance.

RE: Edythe Strandmark
You're welcome.
They were both born in 1890 but the birth info on the MN Edythe is incorrect. I think someone did some shaky research and used the birth date from the Colorado one. I have sent a correction but he hasn't accepted it yet. This Edythe was born 26 Jun 1890 in MN.

Death dates and places are way different. I know that the one in MN died in 1945 because I found her cert in the index. I will look at it tomorrow.

RE: Memorial# 84494028 & Memorial# 84494025
Thanks for explaining. I didn't realize that an edit would show up as no change at that point, but it makes sense. I'm glad to know.

Thank you for adding the extensive biographies I prepared to these memorials. And also for connecting all their children. It was quite a bit of work.

I must add: It felt like a slap in the face to receive all those declines. I assume after you added the parents bios you searched out their children too, and when you saw I had already sent in the edits for them - you just declined me. I felt very bad by this action and thought you should know.

Information on Bernhard H Seefeldt

You have added Bernhard H Seefeldt to the find a grave database. I noticed that you downloaded Prairie Home Cemetery's database to create this information. Thank you for doing this.

I would like to take over this entry. My credentials for taking over this entry. He was my father. My mother Eleanor L Seefeldt might also be in your database. If yes, I would like to take over her entry.
