Would appreciate very much if you could remove your picture of the headstone to my husband's brother's grave. We have our own which we have on the site, and do not need two of the same pic. Thank you.

RE: Rev. Sebastian Maier
Hi! I believe that the information I found is for your Rev Sebastian Maier; however, the memorial I created is for the other Rev. Sebastian Maier that was a member of the Franciscan Brothers. I am posting the information I collected here in case you wish to add it to his memorial, and I am going to remove it from the memorial I created. Thank you for finding his obituary, helping to separate their information, and for detailing his life in his memorial. Ace


On July 15, 1947 the Sheboygan Press in Sheboygan, Wisconsin reported that St. Ann's Church in Escanaba, Michagan was destroyed by fire. Father Maier estimated the loss at $100K.

His WWII Draft Card shows him working at Epiphany Parish, 706 Ogden Ave, Menominee, Michigan.

The 1941 and 1946 Menominee, Michigan city directory shows him as a Roman Catholic priest living at 706 Ogden Avenue. The 1948 Menominee city directory now shows him at 325 S. 8th Street.

The 1940 U.S. Census shows him as a Catholic Priest in Menominee, Michigan and at Gladstone, Michigan on April 1, 1935.

The 1938 Menominee, Michigan city directory shows him as a Roman Catholic clergyman living at 706 Ogden Avenue.

In 1937 he took a trip back to Germany.

The 1930 U.S. Census shows him as a Catholic Priest at Gladstone City, Michigan.

The 1924, 1927, 1929, and 1937 Escanaba, Michigan city directory shows him as a Roman Catholic priest at All Saints Catholic Church, 702 Wisconsin Avenue.

The 1920 U.S. Census shows him as a Priest in Forsyth Township, Marquette County, Michigan.

His 1917 WWI Draft Card shows he was born in Rohrberg, Bavaria, Germany. At the time he was a Catholic Priest in Gwinn, Michigan.

In the 1900 U.S. Census he is shown at St. Mary's Monastery in Summit Township, Butler County, Pennsylvania.

He immigrated to the U.S.A. on August 8, 1899. He arrived aboard the ship "Kensington" from Antwerp, Belgium. His destination was Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to attend the monastery. He carried $13 with him.

LeRoy Evertte Johnson
Hi Bill,
Is the correction for the middle name for this memorial which you recently sent me spelled correctly as 'Evertte'? I've only ever seen it spelled as 'Everett' so, I thought I'd check with you.

Rev. Sebastian Maier
Hi! I was wondering if you were sure that he was still buried at Norway Township Cemetery. The reason I am asking is that he appears to be buried at St. Mary's Cemetery in Evergreen Park, Illinois.

See here:

So far as I have been able to research, the priests listed on the monument are actually buried at St. Mary's and that this is not just a memorial marker.

Thank you for your assistance.

Thank you so much for the photos! Been waiting a long time for someone to 'grab' them. :)
