Gertrude Yager
Would like to get a copy of Gertrude's obituary published in Chicago Tribune 10/28/49. Am looking for her descendants.

Wow. Thank you for catching my edit error on Donald. I must have had multiple windows open? I know he's Cyrus' son? Now I need to go back and see who's missing from Peter's kids that I was trying to fill in. Thanks!

RE: Hintzes of North Northfield
Yes, I learned a little about Donald back in August when I started digging into the Hintzes of Illinois. I was saddened to learn that I was too late to be in contact. I was not aware that he played such an important role in Northbrook history, so thank you for sharing that. You have no idea how many times I would ask a Hintz if they knew of Iowa Hintzes, and no one ever did. I guess that I just asked the wrong ones. :) I only lived in Northbrook for ten years or so, though, and other than seeing the name around town and in the papers, I had no clue that they really were "my people."

My roadblock with getting him linked up properly on Findagrave is that his father, Cyrus, died in Florida and I'm having trouble finding his grave. I know that his grandfather Edward is at Forest Home, and don't know how I missed asking for that edit to Peter and Magdalena, but I have submitted it now. I use multiple sites for research, but try to get it all moved to Find A Grave when possible. If you have any archived information on where Cyrus may be resting, I would be a happy camper!

My grandfather died in his mid-fifties and it seems as if my grandmother's family, who were all local to my family of origin, filled the family void, and we really didn't have a lot of contact with the Hintz family after that. No bad blood, just not geographically desirable, as far as I know. I was only five when he passed away, but I was there that day, and I remember it vividly (they lived only minutes from our home and my grandmother stayed here for the rest of her hundred years). In a poem I wrote years ago, I described him as "a little smiley man with warm hands," because that's what I remember.

I have recently discovered a number of unmarked burials at North Northfield, and getting those verified took some tenacity. I think that I'm more passionate about this family than my other grandparents because its the Hintzes I know the least about.

And then, of course, there is this thing I have for reuniting the families virtually. When my kids want to know, I'd like it to be easier for them to find what I am learning. :)

Thank you for all of the information and hands up you've shared! I can't go back in time, but I can examine it and know more than I did the day before about this family of whom I know so little.

Hintzes of North Northfield
Thank you for the transfer of my great great grandparents in North Northfield. I really appreciate it. Without your memorials, I never would have found the jumping of point of those who moved westward into Minnesota and consequently Iowa and put me where I am today.

I will continue your work and seek to find the rest of the missing members of the family. Thanks for doing what you do. :)

RE: Charlie Hintz 25150201
Yes, Peter's second wife, married several years after he was widowed, was considerably younger than his first. Emma was born in Germany in 1855 and immigrated when she was 5, in 1861, according to the 1900 and 1920 Censuses (Censi?) She did not marry Peter until she was 31 in 1886. Records for her are scarce, but I keep looking! Baby Charlie had me all kinds of confused! It's unusual to have a child at rest with someone other than his mother.

Still looking for Thickla, Peter and Emma's daughter, and the final resting place for those two ladies.

Thanks for taking care of this family. Peter is my great great grandfather on my mom's paternal side, and although I lived in the North Shore area for years, I never knew they were a part of my family. (My grandfather died young, and I have only faded memories of him.)

White, William d. 1821
Congratulations on your unbelievable efforts posting info on Find a Grave!

I noticed that Port-au-Prince was listed on William's memorial posted to Grove Cemetery, Belfast, Maine! Do you know the story behind that? Was he a sailor, or in the Navy? Thanks very much!

My wife's White ancestors were from Belfast, and it is both an interesting story, and difficult to keep them all straight! We had a wonderful visit to Belfast in July 2012.

Best wishes,
Bill and Gail White Slemmer. Ouray County, Colorado.

Dana Murch
Susan Murch
FYI--According to the published vital records of Belfast, ME, Susan A. Murch, daughter of Lewis and Lois Murch, was born Oct 3, 1836. Again, according to the published vital records of Belfast, on Jan 30, 1842, Susan Murch of Belfast married Robert Myrick of Hampden. The Susan Murch who married Robert Myrick cannot be the daughter of Lewis and Lois, as she was only six years at the time of this marriage. Therefore, your Find-A-Grave listing is incorrect in naming her as Susan A. Murch Myrick.
