Bio and Links
I have been interested in genealogy for many years and have taken photo's of some tombstones during this time. Some of the tombstone pictures are not relatives of mine. I took the pictures when I was at the cemeteries. So if anyone wishes to manage any of these persons feel free to contact me.

Bowen
I am searching for any documentation on Solomon/an Bowen. He is my GGG grandfather and grandson if Asa Bowen, Revolutionary War patriot. Solomon was born in 1805 in Vermont or New York. He died in 1877 in Marquette County Wisconsin. Solomon's son is George E. Bowen of Kansas, who is my GG grandfather. Thanks for your help!

John Dewar son of Gilbert Dewar
Can you enlighten me on the information for John. His birth date on the stone is shown as 1910 and death of 1921, his wife, shows she died at 3 years of age. There seems to be something off here, either the stone is not correct of the stone doesn't match the bio on this couple.

Thanks for any clarification you can give.

Karen

That's all I was able to find while researching today!

Jackson Bagley #79138313
Greetings,
I've just listed a memorial for Jackson's Mother Phila and sent through an edit to connect him to his parents; Edward & Phila. Would be interested in communicating with you if this family connects to you. I'm finding a discrepancy with Edwards wife/wives? I'm seeing two names; one is Jane Richardson and the other is Phila. You're bio for Jackson indicates his Mother is a "combination" of both names; Phila Richardson. Would love to get down to the bottom of what appears to possibly be two different women. Thank you.

John Robertson in Douglas Cemetery Wisconsin
Hello! You asked that I remind you about reading John Robertson's grave stone for me when the weather got nicer. Also, could you check to see if any of his family members are buried near him? Any other Robertsons? Also, is there an office at the cemetery that has cemetery records you would be willing to search? John's wife's name was Jeanette or Janet, and his children were Mary, Susan, Jeanette, Jane, John, James, Josephine, and Margaret. I am trying to find out if some of them died young.

Thank you!

Chebar Forbush #81323555
Hello!
Chebar would be my husband's GGGG Grandfather if I can prove he did indeed have a daughter named Lovina. We have traced his line to Lovina and I suspected Chebar was her father. Chebar's memorial says he had a daughter named Lovina--do you have any documentation for that and if so, would you be willing to share? Many thanks!

There is a story about the headstones being replaced or something and I was hoping you would know about it.
I'm curious if Michael and his wife are still buried out at Rockland E.U.B. or were their remains moved and a new headstone put up for them in the Old St. John/St. James Lutheran cemetery in Reedsville.
As you can see in Find A Grave, the original headstone for Michael was found in a pile in the corner of the cemetery. My husband and I cleaned it, took pictures for Find A Grave and placed the pieces back where they were found. That was a very exciting day for me. There is a possibility that he is one of my ancestors also. I have to do more research on this.
Today we were filling a request for another person at the Old St. John/St. James Lutheran cemetery, we came across a standing headstone with Michael and his wife Dorothea on one side and Johann Kruger on the other side.
So now I scratch my head wondering if they are still in Rockland or are they in the other cemetery.
Dorothea's headstone is still standing in the Rockland cemetery.
I know there was a story about this stuff but I'm drawing a blank as to where I heard it.
