Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an attorney and court commissioner in Dodge County, Wisconsin. My lovely wife Julie and our kids Philip and Grace (and dog Howie) enjoy exploring cemeteries with me.

Like most of my fellow gravers, I do this to preserve the history of those who came before us and the often beautiful works of art that mark their final resting places - and to make the information more accessible to those who might be searching for it.

My information comes from a variety of sources, including older cemetery transcriptions done by others. Feel free to contact me with corrections, additional information, transfer requests, questions, etc. I'll be happy to help if I can.

Rev. Edward HUSSLI location
I do not have that record, Steve. The burial occurred years after I acquired my records. But, if I may suggest a physical search of the following?

There is an empty plot next to his mother, Lot 471

There is an empty plot by his brother Joseph J., Lot 765.

Good luck!

Thank you
Hi Steve, I wanted to thank you again for posting the photograph of my Great Great Grandmother Find A Grave Memorial# 133422205 in Hillside Cemetery. I was able to visit there today. The cemetery is huge, so I didn't think there would be a chance to find her, but I had your photograph along as a guide, and at the last minute before giving up and after prayer finally found woman's grave. Very fulfilling discovery.

Thanks so much for the photo of Riley Wilkins, and thanks for looking for his wife, Sarah, also. She must not have a headstone. I appreciate your help!

RE: Genesee County Home/Rolling Hills Cemetery
Hi Steve,

Sorry. I don't. I'm not sure where you would be coming from but it's in the Genesee County Park just down the road from the asylum and just in case you didn't know.....it's only a memorial or symbolic cemetery. I read that the stones that are there were actually found in the basement of the asylum and never used. I also read that the graves of the people buried at the asylum are unmarked and are in an unknown location which quite honestly i don't totally believe. Someone must know something. My thinking is that if someone does then they are keeping it quiet for fear of desecration by curious "ghost seekers". The park itself was actually at one time part of the property of the asylum but was donated to the state(don't quote me on that.) If you need more directions as to how to get to the symbolic cemetery/memorial just let me know. It's not hard at all......
