Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am so pleased to have discovered "Find A Grave". This is a way to keep loved ones remembered forever. I think all of the contributors are doing a wonderful job. I have been to very old sections of very well kept cemeteries but when someone has been deceased for over a hundred years, monuments sometimes just starts deteriorating unless there is someone living to see to it that it is being kept up.

Ora Nell Klehm @ Prairie Lea Cemetery, Brenham
Can you please delete your photo of Ora Klehm, then re-post it and select "Person" from the drop-down menu when you do? That will put a little portrait icon next to her name to let people know that there is a personal photo as well as a grave photo for her? Right now (before I post a photo of her stone) it is just showing the icon for a grave photo.

James Klehm
Klehm Family
Catherine,

My name is James Klehm (Jimmy), grandson to Lucille Willis Klehm Dollar "Bobo". I have been doing research on the Klehm side off & on for about 15 years or so. I actually started before then, but just got bits and pieces from my grandmother when she was willing to give them out. I have pieced together much over the years remembering the things she told me growing up. I have even been able to remember locations of some old cemeteries.

I ran across your posting on "find a grave". I am trying to start again on the Klehm side. I have been working on my Mom's side for a while now as my Great Aunt was trying to fill in some blanks. I wish we would have met up a lot sooner and maybe we could have gotten a lot more a lot faster.

My road blocks here have been with Hugo von Swogetinsky, and Otto Klehm, my great grandfather, as well as his father. I have never been able to actually pin point who Otto's father was. We have always assumed that Hugo, was a stepfather but never sure. Amelia "Emilie" Koch, married Hugo on Aug 16, 1879 & Otto was born on Apr 4, 1879, 4 months prior to their marriage. So we have never really been sure who is father was. According to his death certificate, it shows that John Klehm was his father, if I remember correctly. Otto also went by several last names, Klehm, Kleham, Shram, and Scheberinsky. It seemed like it was different on each census. From What I have been able to gather, there are a lot of skeletons in the Klehm family that no one ever talked about.

I also know that we are tied to the families up north, but haven't ever been able to completely connect all the dots. And my grandmother has told stories of relatives coming to visit from the Chicago area, but I don't know who they were.

Gustav Kleham married Celia Maloney, Dec 20, 1895.

I have copies of most, if not all of the Birth, Death & Marriage certificates from Waller County, as well as some from Austin County. I believe I have most of the census records as well from Waller County, and maybe Austin & Grimes too.

Anyway, enough rambling for now. But I would love to know whatever you may know on Otto, his father & Hugo, and of course anything else you can shed. And I am of course willing to share anything I have as well.

I look forward to hearing back from you. You can email me at this address james.klehm@hp.com work, or jklehm@klehmfamily.com home or both.

Thanks
Your new found cousin
James

RE: Sidney Charles Long - Inglewood Park Cemetery
Okay, I've corrected the date, added the other information, and linked him to Nellie.

If you need anything else done at Inglewood, just let me know.

Sincerely,
Bonnie

Nellie Long - Inglewood Park Cemetery
Hello. This is just to let you know that I am about to fulfill your photo request, and I hit the jackpot with this family.

They are in a private alcove within the Mausoleum of the Golden West, Sanctuary of Faith (see photos). As luck would have it, the gate into the alcove was NOT locked, and I was able to photograph all five name plates: M. Josephine Gilley, Wiley L. Gilley, Mary Gilley Long, Sidney Long, and of course Nellie Long. I added memorials for the other four persons. Nellie's was the highest up, next to the ceiling. The plaques are difficult to read, even with flash and zoom lens. The hardest one to read was actually Sidney's. I may have gotten the years wrong. If you know them, please let me know so I can correct them, if necessary. I also cannot make out his middle initial, it might be "G".

The stained glass window on the back wall of the alcove depicts a beautiful lagoon scene, with the word "Laguna" at the bottom right corner.

There is a tapestry covering the floor, depicting Da Vinci's "The Last Supper".

In my opinion, this is a really nice place to be laid to rest.

I hope this information is helpful to you.

Sincerely,
Bonnie
