|Bio and Links|
Born & raised in St. Louis, MO - live in Moscow Mills, MO. I started family history researching about 1979 after my grandmother passed away and someone handed me a box of old letters. It has been off & on hobby ever since - when I found time away from raising kids and work. Always enjoyed going to cemeteries to place flowers and find graves of relatives. Almost every time I would take photos and now that I found this website I see the reason why I felt compelled to do it.|

Hi Debra, I just transferred his memorial to you. If there are others here that you are related to, please let me know and I will happily transfer them to you. Sincerely, Julie

I've added the pictures for the gravestones of the Zellers and Bruces. I just now saw your request to transfer Lena's memorial to you and I will do that now. Lena's memorial is on the same stone as the Zeller's and the 4th face on that stone says "Mother Father Sister". Willie's stone is next to the Zeller stone.
Debra, PS: if you'd like pictures of the Zeller's stones, just put in a request. I live nearby and routinely take pictures when the weather is tolerable.

The source for most of my memorial contributions to Find A Grave is a series of publications from the Stark County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society published in the early 1980s: Stark County Cemetery Inscriptions. There are 7 volumes.
These documents were the compilations of volunteers that walked the cemeteries and transcribed all of the stones available at that time. I and other volunteers are adding memorials to Find A Grave from these documents.
I was unable to find Magdalena Lessier-Jacob in any of these volumes. That could simply mean that the stone was illegible at the time of the recording in the early 1980s.
Sorry I couldn't help more. I've transferred the two memorials you requested.

I am not able to find the link to your email.
Send me an email to MArmbruster@Hertz.com, and I can reply from there.
You are so lucky that the particular letter that mentions "wicked" Josephine is also one of the most interesting historically, but I'll leave the details for you to read first hand!
I'm also wondering that you say Nora was born in 1865. According to the 1880 census, she would have been born in 1863, no?
|Armbru Mark||RE: James E Bruce II|
It took me a little while to figure out how to access messages on this site (I'm new here) but am glad I got your response!
Real quick, I can give you the source for Elisabeth Jacob's last name; I got it from Mary Nellie Bruce Stanbarger's death certificate 13 May 1928. It is recorded as Nellie Stanbarger so it is easy to see why you may never have found it! You can view the actual document on Familysearch.org.
I also have a letter that had been somewhat of a mystery to me until I received and started reading the letters from William H to his little sister. The mystery letter actually says "From Mother Jacob" on it - I am guessing that was Elisabeth's mother. The letter is actually written by three people, two of the letters are in German and the third is in English written by James Bruce.
Way too much info to impart here, but I chuckled when you said you are descended from Josephine's line, only because in one of William's letters he calls her a wicked girl, or something to that effect.. I will have to see if I can make decent copies as I'm sure you would find them as fascinating as I did.

I was excited to find the grave site and memorial information for James Bruce. It matches my GGG Grandfather including the list of all of his children (one was missing from my tree). Also have received information about this family from old letters I have inherited, most recently Civil War letters from William H Bruce to his little sister Mary Nellie Bruce.
I also have documents that show that Elisabeth Jacob was James E Bruce II's first wife. Your memorial does not list her maiden name.
I did not have any information about James' father or when he came to the US. I was wondering if you could share the sources of that information which you have included? Thanks so much!
I am a Haage by birth. Please contact me at my email firstname.lastname@example.org. My Grandparents are Fred and Dorthy Haage.

Transfer complete, thanks for requesting. Glad his memorial will be managed by a family member.
|Clayton & Donna Kribs||RE: John & Mary Burris Davis|
That was very kind of you to transfer..ofcourse I will keep you up to date on anything I find. They do not have stones so I did take a picture of the area they are burried. Many thanks!
