|Bio and Links|
I have been researching my German ancestry for about 10 years. My family came to Calumet and Manitowoc counties in Wisconsin beginning in 1850. My Ortlepp ancestors came from Gotha, Thuringen; my Hass and Schildhauer ancestors came from the Eckernfoerde district of Schleswig Holstein; my Koeppen ancestors came from Dargun, Mecklenburg. I was born in Sheboygan but now I live in Rhode Island. My family tree on Ancestry.com is HASS ORTLEPP SCHILDHAUER KOEPPEN BATTEY.|

|joann field||your book "Ancestors of Edward Hass and Emma Ortlepp"|
My Calumet County families are mostly Schluchters, Leuthges, but they married into and connected with Pingel, Hass, Birkholz, Winkler, Popp, Christel and many other families in Calumet and Manitowoc Counties.
My Grandmother always referred to her family as coming from "the other side of the Lake". I was born and raised in Oshkosh.
Anyway, I appreciate all the effort you have taken on Find a Grave.
I have grown more and more interested in the lives of these early pioneers. Their courage and strength must have been enormous.
So I was wondering if it is possible to still obtain a copy of your book? I came across a reference to it somewhere.
Thank you very much.

My husband and I found my great grandparents, great-great grandparents and great-great-great grandparents today. The only place we didn't get to was the Free German Cemetery. We're not really sure where that is. Do you know where it is?

With Constantin Ortlepp and family being born in Gotha Germany, have you ever come accross any ties to the British Royal Family since the original name of the House of Windsor was the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha?
|Lori (Bub) Spears||Hello|
I had been doing some research and discovered that Gotthilf Maximilian Ortlepp is my Great Great Grandfather. Looks like that makes us 1st cousins twice removed.

Thank you for taking the time to photograph the Mahoney marker. We are just delighted. As for Patrick's date of birth, I based my date on the 1900 census and it seemed to agree with several other records. Of course we know that many of those early dates are inaccurate, so we just do the best we can. Thank you once again for your efforts.

Thank you so much, you are amazing!!!!!! I now cannot wait to get back east to see him in Lynn, I need to trim around the flat stone. You really rock!

If there weren't omissions, it would make us omnicient:-) It takes the whole family of living to record those gone before us.
He is a distant relative so I shant be asking for a transfer.

You manage him, would you please fix his dates? Thank you kindly, Paulette Sampson
|Paul Stache||RE: Hillman/Ortlepp|
I am just curious, you mentioned in a note you did not find two burials you are looking for. Maybe I can help. Who are you looking for?
|Paul Stache||RE: Hillman/Ortlepp|
Trinity Lutheran's records (original) from 1858 to about 1889 were originally in a smaller brown colored book. In about 1889 they bought a Large, real, church record book and the pastor at that time put all the records from 1858 to 1889 in the new book. And the 1889 book is the one they let people see for genealogy. The records of the E.U.B. church? Well, from around the 1930's until the time they closed the records are at Faith United Methodist Church in Brillion. Faith in Brillion used to be an E.U.B. Church and was a yoked parish with Rantoul. In the 1960's the Evangelical United Bretheran denomination merged with the Methodists. They closed half the churches and the ones left were renamed United Methodist. Older records for Rantoul E.U.B. Church are in the Methodist church in Lark, Brown County, Wisconsin. I think that book only covers the 1890's through the 1920's. But it might have records back to the 1870's. Been a long time since I've seen them. I do not know who takes care of the cemetery there.
