|Bio and Links|
When I sit back and reflect on the significant events and important aspects in my life, one major theme emerges, which is a loving and supportive family, that honors and treasures our heritage, actively preserves our family history and encourages accurate research to put the pieces of the puzzle of our families past.|
I am, Betty L. Schmidt, a sixth generation native Coloradoan. I am the 3rd great-granddaughter of Adam Schwab, the 2nd great-granddaughter of Johann Adam Michael Meyer and Daniel M. Baker. I am the great granddaughter of Bertha and Emil Schmidt.
I am 2nd great-granddaughter of William Eliphalet and Melvira Millicent Holbrook and the great-granddaughter of Mary Melvira and William Edgar Taylor. In addition, I am a direct descendent of William Bradford, Governor of the Plymouth Colony and a passenger on the Mayflower.
I am a retired central office administrator, teacher, genealogist and poet, who lives in two places. My permanent residence is Fountain, Colorado, but winter in Zihuatanejo, Mexico.

you are welcome.. my Mom was an Axtell.. so I love doing the research..
|Roger Huffenberger||RE: Thanks|
You are welcome
Yes there are several St. Peter cemeteries in Cook County.
Niles Center is now called Skokie, and there is a Saint Peter Church of Christ Cemetery in Skokie, and a Saint Peter Catholic Cemetery, so probably Maria is buried in one of those.
I think you had her husband Daniel in "Niles Center" cemetery, so he may belong in one of the other Saint Peter cemeteries in Skokie as well.

Hi Betty, I have added the info & transferred the memorials of Joseph, Ludwig, Ernest, and Anna Georges to you. :)
|Roger D. Davis||RE: Thanks|
I have nearly all the headstones for the Baker Cemetery on line now.
|Ted LaFlamme||RE: Ted, Thanks so much|
Your very welcome Betty. I keep looking for and finding these old cemeteries. The huge Baker family seems to every where I go.
|Barb Destromp||Lake County, Ohio at the North Madison Cemetery.|
Yes I found the North Madison Cemetery on Find A Grave and it appears to have the son Nathaniel and his family buried there.. I too could find nothing on where Pelatiah could be buried for sure.. some of the family trees have him dieing in different locations.. I believe from what I also saw on the search that Mary may have been out in Ohio and died there and they brought her back to Vermont for burial.. Maybe Pelatiah is buried in Elbridge with a unmarked grave now.. Hopefully someone can prove that some day for everyone..
|Pat||RE: Thank you for the Baker Photos|
Altho' I just started taking photos this week, this cemetery's headstones were in very bad condition. I'm sure part of it is the age or maybe the sea/salt air. The gates to the cemetery are chained but the stone wall is only 3 ft. high.

|Barb Destromp||Peletiah the father|
I found on Ancestry that someone said the father is buried at:
1798 Age: 55
Chittenden, Vermont, USA
buried: North Madison Cemetery
But I don't know what state nor could I located any proof of that..I don't know of any cemetery called that in Chittenden Co., Vermont ...
|Barb Destromp||Pelatiah the son|
Okay I believe I have Pelatiah 1776-1853 the son hooked correctly to his mother Mary (Clarke) 1744-1841.. but I could not located a memorial for the father Pelatiah...
So what I did was make up a new memorial for the father.. but I did not add him to the same cemetery as the rest. If we know for sure the father is buried there let me know and I can put his memorial there..(for now he is listed in a unknown location). I'm not sure if there was a stone for the father or not when I was there a number of years ago..
Sorry about all that has happened; not sure how things got so messed up..
Let me know if we should put the father in the same cemetery and maybe if we did, you could do a photo request and some one might be able to locate his grave.
