I wonder if you could help me determine if the Jacob Boenzle you posted on findagrave is my relative. I can't read the headstone real well.
I am a descendant of Maria Boenzle Kipp (my gr gr grandmother) who was the sister of a Jacob Boenzle. I believe he moved to Missouri and in looking at the Missouri death records and the obituaries in the St. Louis Dispatch (18 Nov 1908), I thought Jacob had died on 17 Nov 1908 and was buried in a Catholic cemetery. I know my Jacob was born 16 Sep 1828 and baptized on 28 Sep 1828 in Switzerland. I believe, but not positive, that he was a 2nd husband to Dora Becker Boenzle who was first married to his brother John Boenzle (who died in Illinois).
I actually thought that the date of birth on Jacobís headstone looked more like 28 Sep 1828 rather than 1839. I canít read the date of death very well. Do you know anything else about Jacob?
Abe Smith Jr and wife Vera Mae Harper Smith Gracieís Grammy, Thank you so much for taking such a lovely picture of Abe and Veraís headstones. You are very kind to have done this so quickly and it will help me complete the family tree book that I am working on for an upcoming family reunion. Monica
