|Richard G. Burnett||Geneva & John Heinzelman|
Thank you very much for thking the time to take photos of aunt Geneva's headstone along with the one for husband John Heinzelman
Richard G. Burnett
In reply to your second contact;
I did not take the original photo of the Pittman's headstone, and therefore I do not "own" that photo and I do not have the rights to publish that photo by copying and posting it on my Pittman memorial(s) on Find A Grave.
The other idea you proposed about Floyd's burial is an unknown. That is, who is to say exactly where his body is actually buried? It appears the simple fact is ... the marker you brought to my attention is a cenotaph and/or the memorial I posted is a cenotaph and therefore, both are valid (regardless of the actual final resting place) according to the Find A Grave rules and guidelines copied and posted directly below.
"What is a cenotaph? How do I have a memorial designated as a cenotaph?
A cenotaph is a tomb or a monument erected in honor of a person or group of persons whose remains are buried elsewhere. It can also be the initial marker for a person who has since been interred elsewhere.
To add a cenotaph, create a memorial just like any other. Then email firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to the memorial and a message to mark it as a cenotaph."
Hopefully this will address your concerns....
There appears to be two different markers for Floyd Pittman. The one I listed for him has him sharing a large, fancy, standing, double-stone with his wife Pauline (I can't post the photo of it because someone else owns it). In any event, I made a note on the memorial I posted for Floyd and provided the marker number for the other Floyd Pittman memorial you told me about.
Thank you so very much for taking the time to get these tombstone photos for me. I truly appreciate your kindness!

I did not forget to site you as the source when I uploaded your excellent pictures to my family tree. Thanks again. Your friend, Sara

|ronald conrad||Albert Mauck|
Thank you for the headstone photo of Albert. It is very much appreciated. Also i see you added Alice Faye Mauck funeral home marker, it also is appreciated. Have a great day.
|Lisa Bennett||Looking for Anni Kuchinke|
My great grandfather's niece was Anni Kuchinke. I'm pretty sure that was her married name.
When he died in 1968 in Germany her address was listed as 39 Neutr. Recklinghausen.
I don't know but think her maiden name may have been Gatzke.
I see you have a connection to some Kuchinkes through the Nielsens.
When I google Kuchinke and that address it comes up with Norbert Kuchinke
Do you think you can connect some dots for me? Or not?
|Allen Grasser||RE: Alice & Frances Schwering Memorial|
I am interested in the following Schwering family members that you memorialized at St. Denis Cemetery, specifically:
1. Alice M. Schwering #75636943
2. Frances Schwering #75636960
3. Leo Schwering #75636389
4. Barbara Schwering #75636408
5. Freda M. Schwering #75636768
If you are willing to transfer, I could add additional information to their memorials.
Concerning your Biehl family from Nebraska, I have no connection to Nebraska. My relatives settled first in Philadelphia around 1848 and then relocated to Niles, Michigan; later to Chicago, Illinois & Rock Island, Illinois. Their name was originally Buhl, then they changed it to Biehl once they came to the U.S. In Germany they came from Freigericht-Horbach, Kreis Gelnhausen, Kurhessen, Prussia, so they were Hessians. I hope this helps you.
|Allen Grasser||Alice & Frances Schwering Memorial|
I thought I'd reach out to you about the memorial that you created for Alice & Frances Schwering. They were actually two sisters that were buried together and not husband and wife. "FRANCES" is actually the female spelling for that name. The male version is spelt "FRANCIS". I sent you an edit to link both of these sisters to their parents. Please approve this. Thanks, a Schwering family researcher.
