RE: Photos
As funny as it sounds, Sacramento was supposed to be the County Seat of Waushara County at one time, but the railroads didn't pass through the town like they had been originally planned. Instead the railroad went through Wautoma instead, so the once small but thriving town of Sacramento slowly passed into a legend of sorts. Now, (I went there about a year ago to see if anything had changed) and the original Hotel which is now a house is still there and maybe three other buildings, two for sure, that have either survived or at least trying to survive from when that town was there. It's hard to access, in the summer there are nothing but biting flies so you really have to want to see it to really get in there. I'm very surprised that you weren't even aware of it. But then maybe I'm not surprised! There is your finite history lesson on this Sunday morning that's found in "The Book of Paul". ;-)

Where did you grow up?

RE: Photos
Hi & Happy New Year!

I just wanted to let you know that I have taken pics of the most of the headstones in Brooks Cemetery. Now all I have to do is edit the rough pics & resize them so they meet the upload standards. I have three huge files of pictures which are my winter project. I also have all of the stones in Sacramento Cemetery as well. Remember when that Cemetery was all grown over & uncared for years ago? It was my High School class of Local History with Chet Polka in Berlin that went out and cleaned the place up so it was presentable again & I can't remember if it was Abrams's (?) that lifted and reset all the monuments there as well. You should have seen all the beer cans out there at that time. Somehow, I just can't see "partying" in a cemetery. Some people's kids, 'eh? ;-)

Take care!

RE: David Huntington
Hi Janet,

Do you happen to know where his second wife is buried?

I would be able to do it on the weekend, but it's Vermont and decides to snow on the only 2 days off I have! :)

Thanks,
Tyler

RE: David Huntington
Hi Janet,

To follow up, I checked a transcription of the cemetery and David's not listed.

Here are all of the Huntington's listed as being buried in the West Cemetery:

Huntington, Lucretia
Huntington, Fletcher
Huntington, Nettie
Huntington, Loyal
Huntington, Mary

It would be nice if we could find a death certificate! I searched online and found David living in Weybridge, Vermont in 1850 with his wife.

Since David's wife, child and grandchild are all buried at West Cemetery, I am guessing David is buried there unmarked. Maybe he had a stone but was destroyed over time? Anyways, next time I am in the area, I can go back and take a picture of the Huntington lot and post it to David's memorial.

Hope this helps, and I hoped you had a good Thanksgiving!

Thanks,
Tyler

Ella Marble LeRoy updates
Greetings!
I noticed you sent a couple updates on Ella (Marble) LeRoy. I know her headstone is confusing. The year engraved is actually her birth year & not her death year. She is part of my family & I have been able to trace her as living until at least 1930 where she is living with her husband, Merritt LeRoy in Florence, Lauderdale County, Alabama.

If you have other evidence such as a death certificate or burial record, please let me know. It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much,
Sharon Jones

RE: Sunnyview Cemetery
I realize that a lot of work went into your book. That's why I cited it. But I still don't think basic biographical facts about someone's life (whether from records that are publicly accessible or not) are copyrightable. And I'm not about to go back through 700 memorials one by one to revise the bios, and certainly not to remove information that probably isn't subject to copyright anyway.

I can tell you that whenever someone sends me a question about one of these memorials, I do refer them either to you or to the Winnebagoland Genealogical Society. And I will continue to do so.

RE: Sunnyview Cemetery
Janet,

First, allow me to thank you again for the work that you and Ms. Dunn put into documenting this cemetery.

It was never my intent to step on anyone's toes in posting this information. That is why I try to fully cite the sources that I use, including your book.

However, it is also my understanding that basic factual data - likes dates and places, information in public records, etc. - is not subject to copyright protections.

I realize that local historical/genealogical societies are having a hard time staying afloat, and often try to do so by selling these types of materials. But I also know that many people are searching for information about loved ones in institutional cemeteries, and will probably never find the information unless it is posted on a website like Findagrave. And that's ultimately why any of us do this work, right?

Steve
