My sister and I photographed the whole Odd Fellow Cemetery in Anderson, Grimes Co Tx. I took the pictures myself and she is buried right next to her daughter and son in law. I did not make a dup when I added her. You had her in the wrong cemetery. I see that you have corrected this and I will be happy to delete mine and add the pictures to yours. Glad that we can get this fixed.
Thx Janet

It was very nice to meet you, Joan! It's very interesting to see how you are connected in the family!

Johan Daniel's son, Mattheis, is my 4th Great Grandfather... his son, Solomon, my 3rd Great Grandfather... his daughter, Elizabeth, my 2nd Great Grandmother... her son, Charles Albert, is my Great Grandfather... and his son, Everett Ford, is my Grandfather

That's how I'm connected in the family :)

I had no idea you were related!

Johannes is my 6th Great Grandfather. His son, Johan Daniel Riegel, is my 5th Great Grandfather.

Hi Joan!

I was wondering if you could link Johannes to his parents.
His father is Jost Riegell # 157275420
His mother is Maria Elisabeth Hoenen Riegell # 157275472

Not sure if that's how Jost spelled his last name. I heard the spelling of "Riegel" kept getting changed through the generations. It started out as "Riegell" and then changed to "Riegel"... very interesting!

Thank you so much!!! :)

You're welcome Joan. I'll soon be starting to go through the smaller cemeteries in my area and doing death cert research (since I have free access to them)... don't be surprised if I start sending you lots of info ;-) Have a good weekend!
