Bio and Links
Bio Photo Have been working mostly on my husband's Stark County, Ohio, family - main surnames: Moulin, Lamielle, Haidet, Wymer, Sturm, Shipe, and many connecting surnames.
I love making family connections, like fitting pieces into a puzzle. I enjoy taking pictures at cemeteries and adding them to existing memorials, or creating the memorial with picture.
Also interested in my own Texas family: Bretting, Deterling, Kiesling, Lippe, Bufe, etc.

I am happy to transfer any memorial, unless I am more closely related than the person making the request. Please include your relationship to the person in the memorial when making your request. Thanks!

Hi,
Ohio birth index, Ohio death index & U.S. Social Security Applications and Claims index. Her mother's maiden name is listed as Dorothy Irwin & her father's name is John Sikra. I found these records on Ancestry.com
Thank you,
Nellie

re: Nicholas , Mary, Margaret and Frances Schweitzer
Thanks for finding and taking grave pics for Nicholas, Margaret, Mary and Frances Schweitzer and for adding the death certificate for Frances. I put in edits for fix her name spelling and to correct the error with the two Margarets of about the same age but different death dates. It helped me to sort out the Margarets ...that there were two of them, not just one who married twice. I appreciate it very much. donna white

Ernesztina Szommer Eggli
Thank you for your efforts to take a photograph of my great-great aunt's headstone. I do believe she is buried in Canton, and she is in the St. Joseph church record books.

The following transcript of an obituary from the Index to 1905-1909 Obituaries in the Canton Repository 5 Jan 1906 page 1 has numerous materially significant errors.

YOUNG MAN'S DEATH.
Ernestine Aggle, aged 21 years, died at the home of his father, Herman Aggle, 331 Greenfield avenue, Thursday. He leaves his parents, one brother and one sister. The funeral will take place from St. Joseph's church Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, leaving the house at 1:30.

(Ernestine was a young woman at the time of her death, not a young man.
Her married name was Eggli, spelled various ways including Egglie, Egli, Eggly and Aggle.
Herman Eggli was her husband, not her father.)

The following transcript of an obituary from the Index to 1905-1909 Obituaries in the Canton Repository 6 Jan 1906 page 6, was published the next day with some of the significant errors corrected.

Aggle Funeral Services.
The funeral over the remains of Mrs. Ernestine Aggle will take place from her late residence, 331 Greenfield avenue, Sunday afternoon at 1:30. Services will be held at St. Joseph's church at 2 o'clock.

In spite of the errors, both obituaries confirm the following:
Ernestine Eggli died on Thursday, January 4, 1906.
Ernestine was living with her husband, Herman Eggli, and her parents, Frank and Mary Sommer.
Ernestine's brother, Frank was still living.
Ernestine's funeral procession began at the family home and the funeral mass was held at St. Joseph's Church at 2:00 pm, on Sunday, January 7, 1906.

I also received the following email from Tina Taylor at St. Joseph's:

Our records are limited, however Ernestine Eggly was in the register. She was born in Germany (no birth date given) and she did die at age 21 and the record says of consumption, on Jan.4, 1906 and was buried at St. Peter Cemetery on Jan. 7, 1906 by Fr. Treiber.

I have given you everything that is stated on her record. Good luck with your research.
God bless,
Tina Taylor

I think an important key to the mystery of where Ernesztina is buried is that her married name was incorrectly stated as "Aggle" in the newspaper obituaries. Perhaps her cemetery location could be found by using that spelling of her name. Tina stated that the church records show she was buried at St. Peter Cemetery.

I'm hoping this additional information might help you to locate her grave. Please let me know if you are interested in trying again, and I will make another photo request.

Thank you,
Judith Pansarosa

RE: Breitenstein - Louis & Mary
I didn't realize this. Could you call to see if you can get inside to take pictures? I would prefer the pictures of their names but leave the mausoleum picture in place for now.
Thanks so much.

RE: Miller Photo
When I was doing photos, they would let me go in and see the memorials and even help me with any photos that needed to be done on the upper level. You might ask if it is permissible to enter and do photos of memorials.
Just a thought you might want to check out.

Blessings
