Bio and Links
I like doing Genealogy. As I research I have found a few relatives, even sitting side by side at the library. My greatest find was looking at a website ..typing in the address of my grandpa 's dad. I found the house that my grandpa's grandparents brought in 1871 and owned into the 1900's . also the will of my GG grandma . The house was being rehab by a preservatist group. It is on their site looking as it looked in 1871. My brother and I went to see it it..imagine standing on the front walk that your gg Grandparents stood on over a 100 years ago.
I have joined several Historical society. This is a fun way to meet people with your same interests.. I like to help older people find out about their families. As I research I also find myself reading books on that period of time. This is a good way to figure out how they lived.

RE: Re: Photo request for William Neitzke (1897) at Mt Hope...
No problem...It does seem like a reasonable hypothesis that he would be buried there, but alas, it doesn't appear that he is (or at least there's no way that I know of to figure out where since he doesn't appear in those records or survey and doesn't appear to be where any of his family are).

Re: Photo request for William Neitzke (1897) at Mt Hope...
I was researching this photo request but I couldn't find him in the Mt Hope Interment Records nor in a survey of surviving legible gravestones in almost the whole cemetery ( What evidence do you have that he is buried at Mt Hope (besides the fact that his parents and at least one sibling are, although in assorted different places)?

Your edit request for Johanna K Diekmann- memorial 107151650
Your edit request for this memorial needs to be re-submitted. The prior action simply looped the same person back as her own spouse.

That sounds like an entrance marker. That usually has just something simple on it. Then personal markers if the family purchased any. There are several entrance markers without personal markers

I hate when duplicates happen. However I have found a way to delete them. If you'll look in the corner of the duplicate there will be an x click on that & it will delete it. Well I'd like to view the memorial the other person put in after I did
but when I go to the Springfield National Cemetery
site it won't let me browse the memorials.This is why I haven't been able to find him plus like I said the only Elisha Fred Kyger that comes up when I type in his name is the one I put in. How does one explain that.?

Elisha Fred Kyger
I'm not saying you are wrong but every time I
type in his name the one I put in is the only one that comes up. Even when I go to the cemetery you
say he is in he still doesn't come up. Don't know
what to tell you.I know you want me to change it but if I can't find him then I can't make the change even tho say he is in said cemetery.

Elisha Fred Kyger
Let me do some research. There was a reason that
I put him in the cemetery that I did. Also my
memorial was put in in 2011.

Elisha Fred Kyger
What relation are you to Elisha Kyger? Also I cannot locate E I put him in lisha in the National Cemetery. Before I put anyone in I try to see if they are in the said cemetery. If not then I put them in. Some times it happens.

I wanted to let you know that the location given for Fred (6D) is very likely wrong. That is the oldest section at Oakwood, early 1800's.
I realize that location is listed at Oakwoods web site, I suggest you contact them.
