RE: REF: Clara Bornheimer
I am not directly related - I am doing research for St. Anthony church in Fussville, wi and want to find out what happened to Peter Sturm and his wife Anna Maria Fuss. All their kids were living with relatives in Fussville in the 1870 census

Harry K Stinger
Good afternoon,
That's a great obit for Harry and I'm wondering if you are related. He was a close friend of my grandfather's (Louis B Luther) who was also a member of the McCall Post.

Hi Marianne. I was at Woodlawn yesterday and took a few pictures. One was Lester and the other was Ruth. I placed them on the memorial. If you like them great. If you want me to remove them I will. Frank Germanson

Amanda D
Danzeisen genealogy
Hi, My name is Amanda, and my Great-Great Grandfather was John (Johan) W. Danzeisen. I have a nearly complete chart starting from John and Elizabeth up to grandchildren born in 2003. I don't have any information prior to their immigration from Germany and was wondering if you have any new facts that will help me trace the Danzeisens back even further. Also, if I am able to add anything to your research I'd be more than happy to help if I can.

Thank you,

RE: Bornheimer
Yeah, the quality of some of the obits isn't the best. Some of the microfilms are pretty faded. I sent you two e-mails with the direct copies, which should be the original sizes.

It really makes me happy to help others research their families because.... (1) I've received so much help from others in my own search that I'm honored to pay it forward and (2) It's so much fun to look for somebody else's mysteries when my own family's are driving me crazy. LOL

Let me know if there's anything else I can do. Fingers crossed that you can make the connections!

PS -- I didn't find any information on your "missing" Bornheimers, but without a date of death, there's really no way I can research those farther. Sorry.

RE: Bornheimer

I had great luck at the library today. I found all of the obituaries (except Ellen's) for the Waukesha Bornheimers. I've added them to the appropriate Find A Grave memorials and will also send them to you via e-mail along with some other articles I found on the family.

I also found an obituary for a Jacob Bornheimer, which interestingly was in the same addition of the 1889 newspaper as John's obituary, but it doesn't list where he was buried. The death notice reads:

"Jacob Bornheimer, an aged German resident living two or three miles south of this village died at his home last Thursday. He was one of the early residents of the county. The funeral occurred on Saturday from the Catholic church."

I called St. Joseph's Cemetery to see if they had any records other than what's available on-line... They don't. They referred me to St. Joseph's Church (which would have been the only Catholic Church in town at the time.) The church said that the Archdiocese of Milwaukee holds all of their records from that period. If you google the Archdiocese, it will tell you how to contact their archivist.

At any rate, I think that the obituaries themselves give you enough information to make some of the connections you've been looking for. I'm sorry I couldn't find everyone you were trying to find, but I hope this little bit helps!

Happy hunting,

RE: Bornheimer
If you'd like to give me death dates of the people you're looking for, I'll be happy to look when I'm at the library. (It's no problem, I have to go there anyway.) Some of the obits are available on-line through our library, but they seem to be missing a few years, which the library has in hard copy.
