Kluttz Family Hello , made a suggestion on Johann Leonard Klotz 24988951 The actual spelling of the middle name should be Leonhard. Also there is another memorial of Johann Sr. that is spelled Klutz in the same cemetery I guess maybe we can contact the owner and have it removed since you have the correct name spelling of Klotz for that era on your memorial I would accept a transfer if you like since im linking the whole Kluttz family on here and on anstery.com were the Klotz family tree is.
RE: Sarah Willard Sorry I was unable to locate either gravestone for you... Louis is not even listed on the memorial sign... I photographed almost every stone in the cemetery and double checked my photos... Many of the stones in this cemetery are very hard to read and some of them impossible... The cemetery seems to be well maintained but hasn't been used in over a 100 years... By just browsing through my photos of the "tags" the latest date of death interred there was in the year 1900...
