Greenwood Cemetery Mary Warren's grave is unmarked. I did verify with the cemetery office just in case. She is buried right next to one of her husbands (Alexander Irvine). I did take a picture of her plot anyways with Alexander's grave because the Irvine main headstone is there. Holly
John & Rosemarie Stracke Hi Cyndi, while recently photographing at Old Holy Cross cemetery, I came across the burials for John & Rosemarie and noticed you have their memorials in Calvary Cem, they are actually in Old Holy Cross, along with the rest of the family. Would you mind relocating their memorials to Old Holy Cross? P.S. Nice family photo's! Thanks and regards, Nadeen
I received your suggested correction on the place of birth for Nicholas Fonck, changing it from Paris to Belgium. May I ask the source for that?
Nicholas was only in America when the census was taken in 1890 and 1900. Unfortunately, as I'm sure you know, the 1890 census went up in smoke. However, the 1900 census definitely says he was born in Paris. In fact, it looks as though they had Belgium written down at first, and then corrected it.
In addition, I looked up some of his children on later census records to see what it said for their father's birthplace. There were several different answers over the years, including France, Germany and Holland, but the majority listed their father's birthplace as France and their mother's as Belgium.
The following all gave Nicholas' birthplace as France, and Johanna's as Belgium: his daughter, Annie Fiedler, on both the 1910 census and 1920 census in Richwoods, Calhoun County, Illinois; his daughter, Matilda Kolb, on the 1930 census in Lacrosse County, Wisconsin; and his daughter, Barbara Fiedler, on both the 1910 census and 1930 census in Richwoods, Calhoun County, Illinois.]
I know that census records are notoriously "iffy" when it comes to the facts, but that's 6 examples of Nicholas being listed as a native of France and his wife as a native of Belgium. You may very well have a better source.
I wish I had an obituary for Nicholas, but looked again today and couldn't find one. Seems like nothing in genealogical research is ever easy. Ha!
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.
