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.

Hi Thanks but we do the updates. We do not give family info for non relatives to upload. You can accept that and transfer the memorial to a blood relative or continue to hold it without the information on the memorial. Either way the Family Tree is in our database, We just like to keep the info updated in online sites. Have a good day.

KJS, there is a PATRICK CARNEY, number 160 on the monument but he is not on Find A Grave. Any ideas or has no one created a memorial? Thanks for accepting or rejecting edits.

I'll check my email to see if he requested credit. In any case I am done with the persons on his pic and will continue with the persons listed on the other six memorial panels, pics of which I just took today.

By memory I know we have lots of Abell. Not home to look at my records. I am shocked someone is in the office on Saturday. My access is when office is open. But I will check my records.
I am going through all records all doing and redoing and editing the entire Cemetery. The information came from official records. This is taking me some time. Not sure who you talked to, I previous clerk JUST left so whoever you spoke to probably doesn't know of the project.
Hello, and thanks very much for the excellent photos of the grave marker for William and Mehitable Thomas. I greatly appreciate your including the entire marker, as well as close-ups. Warmest regards...

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. "http://digital.library.wisc.edu/1711.dl/WI.WFWelshSett
Sadly, both Maurice and Elizabeth died, leaving their 5 children orphaned.
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.
