RE: Sarah Taylor 90321554
Thank you for letting me know the other memorial for Sarah was deleted. I added my stone photo to the remaining memorial since, as you pointed out, it shows all of the lettering in her surname. Thanks again for alerting me of the Taylor memorial and for your help in getting this cemetery shipshape! -Judi

Johanna Wasmund Kasdorf
Hi. Thank you for your message regarding my GG Grandmother Johanna. Yes, I know her first husband was Johann "John" Wasmund. I believe he is buried in Cook County, IL, but haven't found any record so far. She had 7 young children when he died in 1866. My GG Grandfather Johann Frederich Wilhelm Kasdorf (called Fritz or Fred) had 4 children when his first wife, Katharina Kraatz, died around the same time. Together they had 4 children, so a total of 15. I was very fortunate all were named in her will. When her children were young, they went by Kasdorf, but went back to Wasmund when they became adults. Her daughter, Sophia Wasmund married his son, Frederich Walter Kadorf who were my great grandparents, so John Wasmund is also my GG Grandfather on my G-grandmother's side. Sophia and Fred had nine children. I have seen 3 different maiden names for Johanna, including yours of Pickhardt. I will be anxious to research that one when I have the time. Thank you again. Charlene Kasdorf

Ft. Sheridan misc.
Hi,

I'm preparing a list of photos needed at Ft. Sheridan, and just wanted to thank you for including section and plot numbers on the memorials you've made there. It makes compiling a list with locations much easier.

Thanks,

Colleen

Your are welcome. I read the obit you posted, the burial permit is our legal document. I thought it strange also.

JOSEPH F. PEACHE
I had been routinely posting obituaries to the memorials I created. Then someone complained to the Find A Grave administrators about one of the obituaries. The Administrators made me aware of their policies regarding posting of obituaries in any manner to memorials. This is what it says in the "Help with Find A Grave" section:

"Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?

You should not copy obituary notices from newspapers (or from funeral home notices or web sites) to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so or you are the author of the obituary. Some obituaries that were published in 1922 or earlier are now in the public domain. In general, obituaries in newspapers are submitted by the family with assistance from the funeral home. If the obituary is added to the memorial record, it should list the newspaper and date the obit was printed for example "Published in the Hattiesburg American, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Internet Edition, April 11, 2007". Please do not include the names of living or surviving relatives in the biography, unless you have their permission. If you do not have permission to copy an obituary to a memorial, you may put a note stating the name of the newspaper and the date the obituary was published.
Please do NOT add photographs from obituary notices (unless you, personally took the photo), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records. Similarly, you may NOT scan an obituary and add it as a photograph to a memorial record. Obituaries for "famous" individuals are usually written by newspaper staff and can not be posted to Find A Grave as the newspaper company owns that copyright. Please do not include website addresses that may be listed in the obituary as they usually expire within a year after the obituary is printed."

I thought the wording was a bit ambiguous so I emailed the administrators and their reply was, in no uncertain terms, that we MUST have written permission from the newspaper of online source to copy and post obituaries in Find A Grave memorials.

Fort Sheridan updates and photos
Thank you for sending me a note of thanks about the updates and photos I have been adding. I am glad you appreciate them as I was a bit worried I was inundating you with too many birthdate entries. I am trying to snap & add photos for all of the Find A Grave memorials at Fort Sheridan that do not have them yet so, since you don't mind, I will continue to send birthdates for those that are missing and perhaps a parent/spouse link when they can be confirmed. I would like to extend my thanks and gratitude to you for so kindly adding so many memorials to the database and for INCLUDING their plot numbers! :) Sincerely, Judi

Edwards/Von Geiger at Ft. Sheridan
Thanks for getting back to me on that. I'll contact the person who brought it to my attention and ask her if she wants it transferred to her, as he appears to be a family member.

Sarah A Miller Wessling #25150717
Too many Sarah Wesslings!
The Sarah Miller Wessling on the memorial listed above was the daughter of Martin Miller #25150357 and Mary Stryker #25150358. I have information that shows her middle name begins with "A".

After her first husband George died, she married two more times. The second husband died and she and the third divorced.

While I was looking for additional information on Sarah Miller Wessling, I did find another Sarah Wessling and perhaps she is the one who belongs to the headstone with the 1853-1933 date. This Sarah Wessling was born 26 Jun 1853, to Gerhardt Wessling #30889878 and Wilhelmina Plagge #30889895. They are both buried in North Northbrook Cemetery. She died, unmarried, and the date I found was 24 Sep 1938 - the same as Sarah Miller Wessling. Maybe it should have been 1933 like the headstone? What are the chances they both died on the same date?? Maybe the death records are mixed up?

Don't know if any of this makes sense or is of any help.
Barb
