Bio and Links
Bio Photo Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

"Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. The goal at Find A Grave should not be to manage all of your family members. If you have information to add, you should suggest it to the current manager and they should make the changes."
~Jim Tipton, creator of Find A Grave.

We have been researching for a couple decades. Families: Buckmaster, Patterson, Wollam, all variations of Teatsorth, Falk/Faulk, Johnson, Lee, Collier, Eschbarger, Orr, Brinton, Thomas, Grau, Hyde, Case, all variations of Brandeberry, Richcrick (Reichenbach), Slote, Balken, Ulmstead, Flower, Dick, Graham, Hyatt, and many more.

Also a focus on those who have fought for and kept us free ~ our American veterans. We have a virtual cemetery for these units: 31st and 49th Ohio Infantry who fought during the Civil War.

Philip Merlau
Earlier this week I visited the Prairieville Cemetery and stopped first at the township office to get the location for Philip's grave. The clerk searched the computer, but did not find anything for Philip. Sarah is in Section B plot 217, grave 1 and Daniel is in that same plot at grave 5. There is a large monument with the Merlau name that I photographed and added to his memorial site, but there were no individual names on it. There was a gap between the monument and grave 5, so he could well be buried there, but with no stone. The clerk offered to let me look through the old record book, but I did not have time to do that. My husband's parents and brother are buried in this cemetery and since we were visiting their graves, thought I'd try to fulfill some photo requests. Just thought I'd let you know this background info to explain the photo without his name.

RE: Lost Burial
My closet relative to Jackie would be my grandparents (Dale H Buckmaster and Claryce Minnie Buckmaster, both buried at Ft Howard in Green Bay, WI.) Jackie's may be a nickname for John. I was told he was buried in Pestigo,WI but don't know which of 3 cemeteries I believe. I was told he lived no longer than 18 months. He would've been born after Dale Jr (1947 but before Constance Lee (1950). Now that's what I remember is him be the 2nd of 7 but I suppose he could've been the 1st but I know those are the only 2 options.

I'd be so forever grateful if you could find any information on him as I can't seem to find any from relatives since both grandparents and others that would have known are also passed. But I still have yet to ask my uncle Dale Junior so maybe he might have something he's just very difficult to get a hold of and he distances himself from the family.

By any chance are you on that we may be able to connect on there? If not I could at least send you an invite to be able to look and make any possible changes to the tree if you have additional information. If that would be of interest to you please let me know as I will need your email address to allow you access.

Thank you so very much for all the work that you have done for so many people! I really wish records would've been much better back then so we could've had a better sense of where and who we came from and two worked so hard for it but sometimes that's where we get the most rewarding I guess right?

Lost Burial

I thought I received an email from you but can't find it, unless I'm imagining it ;-)

I'm looking for a young child my grandparents called Jackie, but not sure if that's his given name. All I know is he was buried in Peshitgo, WI and my gma told me he lived around 18 months due to a hole in his heart but that was many decades ago so he could've been younger.

Also curious in how we may be related. Where in the lineage we both are.
