RE: Loretta Mae Johnson
Hello, Chris,
Will you please go to the memorial for Loretta Mae Johnson, and click the Edit tab on the upper right. If you know the memorial numbers (you can find them on the bottom of a memorial), you can add them to the family relationships choice. If you can't, but simply want the names added to her bio, please go to the last choice under Edit and write that, much as you did here on my page. If you can also include how you know this to be the case, I would very much appreciate it!
Thank you for writing--I look forward to seeing the Edit(s)

RE: Esther Bergstrom Gravestone
Found David Bergstrom's marker - temp style - and added photo. It is for sure at Washelli.

RE: Esther Bergstrom Gravestone
You're welcome. Calvary on line records have 3 other Bergstroms but not near Esther. You are correct that he is at Washelli. Next time over there I'll check to see if there is a buried marker for him.

RE: Laib Family
Hi Chris,

Katie Laib (Lieb) was my Great Grandmother. My Grandfather, Louis Roelle told us that the family name was originally Lieb. His Grandfather, Charles Leib/Laib, used both. I'm still on the Laib/Lieb search.

The family's origin was Wuerttemberg, Baden, Germany, Grandpa said their origin was Switzer Deutch, born in what was part of Switzerland, long ago.

Annie and Charles were married in Wisconsin, their children were all born in the states, either Wisconsin or Illinois, between 1851 and 1867. Sorry no Jacob.

The family is found in the Wuerttemberg, Germany Emigration Index. Originally, 1998, I spent several days going through the Germans to America series at the local Library, where I found Charles's immigration.

If I find anything that might be helpful to you I'll forward it on.

RE: Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Wilmington, IL
Hi Chris,

You can try reaching out to the Wilmington Historical Society or you can contact the city to find out who manages the Mt. Olivet Cemetery so they can go through the records with you. I have found that in these small towns, people are very willing to do what it takes to get this information for you.

It's a very common name, this burial was at Mt. Olivet in Chicago.

James & Anna Lawler

O'Guinn, Doty
Chris, I was reading one of your public messages, and noticed both names I have mentioned above. It just seemed strange because my great grandmother married John O'Guin, Her maiden name was Harper, however her mother's maiden was Seagraves, and her grandmother's maiden name was DOTY----just food for thought,
