Sophia Krauter
Ronald on the marriage record for Sophia Krauter & George Hempel in the Bastrop County Courthouse Sophia's parents are listed as Gottlieb Krauter & Christina Simms. Christina did not marry Johann Krauter until 19 Jan 1860 in Bastrop County, Tx. While I feel Gottlieb Krauter & Johann Krauter are probably kin I do not think they are the same person.
I am just now getting back into researching again due to some health problem. I am planning a trip to Bastrop County Courthouse to try & find something to prove this. I will let you know what I find.

Anna (Doll) Merkel
The cemetery e-mailed me that the only Anna Merkel buried at Bellefontaine died in 1957? This can't be the same person.

Is there a grave marker for Anne Merkel at Bellefontaine? She died 24 year after her husband (Louis Merkel Sr) and I have not been able to find any records of whether she is actually buried there or not. I don't see her name on photos of the monuments that are there?

I added the information to both Mr. & Mrs. Miller's memorials. I typed the obituary in Mr. Miller's bio where it should be. I really think it makes a memorial tacky to see the obituary posted in the photo space. The same goes for the Funeral Records, but it is up to you on it if you want to remove it.

Thanks for sending, I'm always happy to add information to a memorial.

I have been walking this cemetery Valhalla in St. Louis Mo. I took photos of the Horschmann and seen you had already added photos. I found a d/o John & Alvina name Daisy who married a Sanders. Are you related to the Horschmann? If so would you like me to Transfer Daisy over to your care? Just let me know. Diana

Alfred Erlandson's Memorial
Thanks for the excellent photo of the monument and the attached write-up. I had no idea that this monument even existed. I have re-arranged the photos, but chose to leave your photo on the main page, just below the group photo of the men. It seemed appropriate to have the group photo first, then to honor the many with your photo, then honor Alfred, himself, by a show of his medals. As an ex-serviceman, myself, I think Alfred would have been happy putting his unit before himself. Thank you for enhancing this soldier's Find A Grave memorial with the information you provided.
Jeff :)
