Children of E and R Card
This is very long so please bear with me.
I'm asking you to look very closely at 2 of these markers and see if the pieces to this puzzle can fit. Those stones are in such a terrible condition, that I don't know how you were able to do as well as you did. I have studied the pictures by blowing them up and I think I could be right....or is it that I want it to work so badly that I see what I want to see.

In the Markesan Memorial Cemetery, Markesan, Wisconsin where there are many of the Card family buried there are 5 children buried that say Child of E. & R. Card on the markers. I am certain that these are the children of my Elisha and Rose., but I am still trying to tie things together. Four of these children died in a 2 week span from Dec 16, 1880 to Jan 1. 1881.

Elizabeth L Card d Dec. 16, 1880. You were so kind to take the pictures for me.....this helped me a lot. You transcribed the marker as she was 3 yrs 10 mo old. My Elisha and Rose had a daughter Elizabeth according to the census records who would have been about 13 yrs old in 1880. I can't tell for sure by the picture....but I think that 3 could really be 13.

Fordyce W d Dec 17, 1880 16 years old.....My Elisha and Rose had a son Fred W. according to the 1870 census records....in 1880 the census has this child as Fordice W. So this one matches up

Aggie A. Card d Dec 19, 1880 in 1880 census they have a daughter Agnes A. Think this one is for certain.

Ivan H. Card d. Jan 1, 1881. Could this be the Idah May that was 3 months old when the census was taken on June 21, 1880. According to the age on the marker this would figure correct....so now to determine is the name incorrect on the census or again because of the condition of the marker is this actually what it says.

and

Anson E Card b 2 Apr 1862 d Oct. 19, 1864. according to the age on the marker....he wouldn't have been born yet in 1860 and is gone before 1865 so this one would connect to this family only on the basis of the "Child of E and R Card" on the marker.

I find the family in 1870, Only 3 children, Fred, Elizabeth and Rosana

1880 I find the family with a transcription error. They have been transcribed as Cavel if you look close you can see that it is Card. The family is Elisha 43, Rose 36, Fordice W. 15, Elisebeth M. 13, Rose Ann 10, Agnes A 4 and Idah May 3 months.

1875, This census gives only numbers....2 white males and 3 white females

1885 now only 1 white male and 2 white females. This would reflect the death of Fordice, Elizabeth, Agnes and Idah May sometime between 1880 and 1885.

In the 1900 census it says that Rose had 6 children with 1 living. This all adds up when I study it, but it is all conjecture....no true proof.

Elisha and Rose are my husbands great grandparents. The daughter Rose Ann or Rosanna who is not buried with the others is my husbands grandmother and she is buried in Blue Earth MN where Elisha and Rose are also buried. Any help you can give me with this would be so much appreciated. Thank you again for putting these graves on Find A Grave. You are doing a big service to family members.

E & R Card Children
You manage 4 children of E & R Card. All in Row 13 of the Markesan Memorial Cemetery.
Elizabeth L. Card 87802766 died Dec. 16, 1880
Fordyce W. Card 87802678 died Dec. 17, 1880
Aggie Card 87802591 died Dec. 19, 1880
Ivan H. Card 87802530 died Jan 1, 1881

Did you use the headstones as a source for your information or is there a Church or cemetery record that is available to reseach?

There are no pictures. Could you take pictures of those 4 graves for me.

My husbands great grandparents are Elisha and Rose Card. I'm looking for a way to connect these 4 children to them.
There is one other child,(you don't manage that one) buried in Markesan Memorial Cemetery whose parents are E & R Card
Anson E. Card 73286526 died Oct. 19, 1864

Hi-
i am delighted you took this photo. This is my grandfather's first wife( no children). I am in search of a photo.
Lucia was never mentioned in our household until just about 20 years ago. We never knew my grandfather had a first wife. They were married 16 years.

I have tracked down some census records but would Love to find a photo.

Van Auken
Hi,
This grave, marked F Van Auken 4 years, is Fred Van Auken Born 1856 died 1860. He is the son of Nathaniel Van Auken and Hannah Mary Card, grandson of Simeon van Auken, who is buried next to Fred. Also in the Markesan cemetery is John Van Auken, son of Simeon and Rachel Van Auken

Someone asked if Rachel Van Auken is buried in Markesan. No, she is buried in Farmersburg-Wagner Cemetery in Farmersburg, Clayton Co, Iowa along with their daughter Elisabeth Van Auken (wife of John Brown) and their son James Van Auken.
