RE: Bernard G Rhode
Thank you for your reply. I would be interested in general life events such as where he went to school and what he did for work. In short: the 205th did not exist for long and did not serve as a unit overseas. Much of the story I hope to tell will revolve around the men who enlisted with it, whether being members of the 205th had any lasting meaning. Several other men came up from the USA to enlist with the unit, so it would be interesting to know what motivated them in particular. Bernard being from Wisconsin, possibly having a Milwaukee connection also has my interest I was born in Wisconsin (Milwaukee, spent my first few years in Wauwatosa). You know how it is sometimes? Also if you have a photograph of him from that period it could help identify him in any group photos (as of yet I've only seen a few, not sure how many exist.)

Bernard Gray Rhode
Hello, I'm researching a Canadian WWI unit and I believe that Bernard joined it in January 1917:

RHODE, Bernard Grey--240728--born: Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA on November 18, 1893; residence: 28 Murray St. W., Hamilton; occupation: Mechanic; attested: January 12, 1917.

attestation paper:

Full service records are being digitized by the archives and should be available by the end of 2015.

Any information that you would be willing to share would be greatly appreciated.

Re: William & Emma Schlueter
Thank you so much for the information. I have sent an email to the cemetery office for the date. Since Emma was my relative, I had all her data, but unfortunately not for her husband, William. I appreciate your help!

Re: William & Emma Schlueter

You posted a photo to Emma (Schroeder) Schlueter of the burial marker for these folks at Highland Mem. Park in Wisconsin. And I thank you very much for that. She is one of my Schroeder descendents.

A memorial had not been created for her husband, William as yet, and I just did so. Would you please post that photo to his memorial page also?

Thank you.

Hello Lorraine,
Back in November you had taken a photo of Howard A. Gennrich's (45689705) headstone. You mentioned that it was a Military headstone about 4ft below another headstone possibly him and his wife. If you get a chance, could you possibly take a picture of the other headstone? Thank you so very much......Valerie

Thanks so much for taking the time to find and photograh these stones for me. I really appreciate it. I see you did not find Duffy stone, could be he doesn't have one or isn't buried there.. I will do some checking on this.
