Anton Kons
Hi Doug,
I have a problem. I was going to link up Theresa Weber to her spouse Anton Kons and discovered there are two memorials for my uncle Tony. You have one #43640329 in Holy Cross Cemetery in Kaukauna but he is actually buried in Holy Angels Cemetery in Little Chute (memorial #71957917). Could you remove the Holy Cross memorial please?

Clayton Nemmers obituary
Hello, Doug!

Here is the obituary for Clayton Nemmers: (my 2nd cousin)
Clayton F. Nemmers, 83, of Le Mars, Iowa died suddenly Tuesday, November 9, 2010 at his home in Le Mars.

Mass of Christian Burial will be at 10:00 a.m. Saturday November 13, 2010 at St. James Catholic Church in Le Mars with Reverend Matt Hewitt officiating. Interment with Military Honors provided by the American Legion, Wasmer Post #241 will be in Calvary Cemetery in Le Mars. Visitation will be anytime after 3:00 p.m. Friday at the Carlsen-Feuerstein-Funeral Home in Le Mars, where there will be a Parish rosary at 4:00 p.m. and a Vigil Prayer Service at 7:30 p.m. Expressions of sympathy can be extended to the family through

Pallbearers will be Shawn Cheesten, Scott Ihrke, Larry Brangwin, Len Yoerger, Gordon Yoerger, and Denny Schleef.

Clay was born March 8, 1927 in Le Mars, Iowa, the son of Francis and Vera (St. Germaine) Nemmers. Clay was also affectionately called “Tiger” by many of his family and friends. He graduated from Central High School in 1945, and enlisted with the United States Navy where he served in World War II. He was a member of Admiral Byrd’s 1946 expedition to the Antarctic, known as Operation Hi Jump. Using PBM airplanes the operation mapped over a third of the continent. During the Korean War, he was called to active duty for his expertise in communication equipment. He served on the ship USS Currituck, 1946 to 1947-AV-7, Rank AET Mic, Division V and he attended many of the ship members' reunions. He was also a member of the Underwater Demolition Team. He was a member of both the World War II and Korean War Last Man’s Clubs. He was an active member of the American Legion Club, and he was a volunteer with the Plymouth County Search and Rescue Team. Additionally, he was also personally responsible for saving other peoples’ lives at a time when there were no emergency response units available.

After his honorable discharge he returned to Le Mars where he met Jeannie (Yoerger) who he married on August 16, 1954 at St. Joseph's Catholic Church - Ellendale, rural Merrill, IA. Clay owned Nemmers Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning and had served commercial and residential customers for years in the surrounding states. At one time, he was co-owner of The Amber Inn Hotel and Restaurant. He was a Ham Radio Operator, pilot, avid photographer, and was active in the Arts community. He enjoyed his family, computers, politics, and jokes. Clay was extremely athletic and gifted. In his younger years, he was a scuba diver and a championship water skier, ice skater and professional tap dancer. Clay loved life and loved people and throughout his life, made many life-long friends. He was a wonderful and beloved husband, active father, and a great neighbor and member of the community. Certainly, he will be missed by all who knew him.

Survivors include his wife of 56 years, Jeannie of Le Mars; four children and their families: Cheri Jolin of Parker, CO, Kimberly and her husband Donald Fague of Denver, CO, Michael Nemmers of Le Mars, and Rhonda and her husband Tony Mial of Stafford, VA, and 10 grand children, and 13 great grandchildren; and his sister Joellen and her husband Barney Taylor of Phoenix, AZ.

He was preceded in death by his parents Francis and Vera Nemmers and his beloved son Bradley Allan Nemmers.

James Thomas Weaver # 133451176
James Thomas Weaver is the son of Thomas Weaver and Mary Sutherland which you state in the bio and is correct, but the links you provide are for Thomas Weaver (1839-1925) and Elizabeth Weaver (_-1909). The Thomas Weaver that the link takes me to dies in 1925 but if you look at the Censuses for Thomas Weaver and Mary Sutherland - Mary is a widow in the 1871 Census. Nowhere in any document or census is Mary called Elizabeth. In the 1861 Census - where it lists James Thomas Weaver as 2 years old, Thomas Weaver is listed as being born in 1806 not 1839. I think the links provided to Thomas and Elizabeth are not the correct parents for James Thomas Weaver.

Mabel Dondelinger
Hi Doug - I see you have some edit requests in for Mabel Dondelinger in Green Mountain Cemetery, Boulder, CO. First, thank you for searching thoroughly to find an existing memorial with a typo rather than simply creating a duplicate memorial. Unfortunately, the latter approach happens a fair amount in this cemetery. Second, I thought you might like to know I just added some gravestone photos, as luck would have it. Take care, Amy
