RE: Albertsen
Mamie Smith was on the back side of the large Albertsen stone which was inscribed with the Wischmeier name. I also photographed the stones of Ralph Waldo Wischmeier and Edith Albertsen Wischmeier which were on the same lot.

RE: Albert Albertsen
Thank you for asking. I re-checked. There is a stone for Edward Albertsen who died in 1943, a stone for Theresa (Waldhoff) Albertsen who died in 1961, and a stone for Eugenia (d. 1902), Albert (d. 1898), and Estella A. (d. 1891). I'm not sure how I missed Albert's name the first time I looked, but I'll get photos of all of the Albertsen stones in Block 281 in the next day or two.

Stracke's @ Old Holy Cross Cem., Racine, WI
Hi Cyndi, right you are about Herman and his wife being buried at Old Holy Cross. When I started photographing at the cemetery, I saw the notation on the page of the cemetery on Find A Grave noting that Calvary and Old Holy Cross do not have a division line to separate the two. So, I went to the office and had the office employee show me where the two begin. However, I had entered several hundred memorials and haven't gone back yet to relocate the memorials. I have deleted my duplicate memorials of the Stracke's. I do have a list of all the memorials I entered that need to be transferred over, and while I'm still entering new memorials I check first at Calvary and then at Old Holy Cross to make sure that I'm not duplicating memorials as well making corrections that someone else may have theirs in the wrong the cemetery. Thank you for notifying me, I do strive to make sure the entries are correct. It's appreciated. Regards, Nadeen

wrong memorial
Thank you Cyndi for letting me know about placing th wrong stone on Margaretha Kruse. It has been removed. I do appreciate when brought to my attention. I think we need to remember our loved ones correctly. Thanks again.

RE: Henry Heinen
Have photographed the entire cemetery this summer and will get them all posted as the weather chases me indoors. In the meantime, I'm trying to fulfill requests as they come up.

RE: Louis, Adolph and Otto Stroh
Cyndi, I will take all Stroh family photos noted on the records around Louis. They are all in Block C so likely they are family. Either way, I'll get the pictures and add them to find-a-grave. I've also just written you an email. (<:)

Louis, Adolph and Otto Stroh
Hi there. Are you connected to this family or just adding information? I have found Otto and Adolph also buried at Mountain View Cemetery and would be happy to photograph them to connect to Louis and parents too. I believe there are other family members buried at Mountain View as well.
