Tammy Gephardt
Virginia C Martin
Good Morning! My name is Tammy Gephardt. I just thought I'd let you know that I sent you some updates for Mrs. Martin's memorial. I got my information directly off of the 1900 Census for her birth Month and for her death information, came straight off the Death Index.

RE: Amelia Eckert family
Thanks for accepting edits and updating her memorial page. Yes, I noticed too in Amelia's obituary, that it stated Jacob was Amelia's adopted son. I pondered that, then decided it must have been a misprint. Instead, Jacob was her adopted GRANDSON. Jacob is now linked as the son of Robert Eckert and Elizabeth (Maschmeier) Eckert.

Not related, just researching after stumbling upon an obit for Robert Eckert, while looking for a totally different name in newspaper archives.

Then, what a pleasant surprise to find and be able to link these two families.

Thanks for all you do on Find A Grave.

Loiza Rose at Claggett Cemetery
Hi Susan,
Just an FYI -- I can tell you absolutely that Loiza Rose and her mother, Elizabeth Peckinpaugh Rose, are not buried in Claggett Cemetery. Larimore will be unable to provide any sustainable proof otherwise. They simply are not there. Recent Rose burials have begun to show up on Find A Grave close to where they were documented to have been buried some time ago. As always, your call though.

Best wishes,

Orr Daniels, 16202226, Claggett Cemetery
Hi Susan,
I am wondering if you would be agreeable to the transfer of Orr Daniels to me as I have quite a bit of information I can add for him? If so, my contributor number is 47297998. In anticipation - Thanks.

Hope your research is going well. Mine has finally concluded and I am cleaning things up and passing along information.

Best wishes.

Hogate and Martin
Hi Susan,
Please excuse the intrusion -- just wondering if you received an email from me that I sent to your private gmail account? I have been having significant issues with my internet service so sometimes emails don't go out or come in.

The jist of the email was that I just learned Hertha Martin is the mother of the Hogate men buried in Claggett Cemetery's Hogate family lot. Her memorial says her relationship to the Hogates was unknown so I thought I would pass the info along.

Best wishes,

Lola B. Liedtke (14966541) and George Glen Liedtke
Hi Susan --
Just discovered that Lola's middle name is Bernice. Do you know anything about a previous memorial for George Glen Liedtke - her husband? My search engine pointed to a memorial at Claggett but nothing came up. Based on information I have, I added one for him along with burial site information. If you know something I don't and I need to remove it, will you please let me know?
Hope your research is going well.

Best wishes,
Liz Weddle

Julia Kerndt
Were you looking for Julia Kerndt, wife of Gustave ? She is buried in Oak Hill in Lansing, Iowa. I have the photo of her headstone & created a memorial for her.

Jane Hammack Memorial# 43213600
Hi, Susan---

Just to let you know: The birthdate on Jane (Frakes) Hammack's marker is *26* Jan 1822 -- which matches the date in the John Frakes family Bible written at the time.

Valetine "Feldie" Staatz
I got the pictures done of the Kandel and Staatz graves.
I put picture captions on the area shots if you care to click on those pics to see that.
Anna's name is not on the gravestone with Ralph. I rechecked with the cemetery about that and they said they have no record of Anna being interred there. That would explain why her name is not on the gravestone, right?
I checked and could find no obit or funeral notice for Anna. Don't know if she was cremated or otherwise. I think the only way you will find where she went is to find a surviving family member who would know.
You should change Anna's Find A Grave page to unknown burial since she is not in Lincoln Memorial Cemetery.
Apparently you did not want to put in a picture request for Anna's mother and father-in-law's graves who are right there with the other graves. That is fine. I got a friend of mine to do that.
I did not understand why you put in a request for pictures of Anna's grave when I specifically asked if you would not do that? Maybe you had a good reason for that?? No big deal anyway.

Very interesting information on her! I found it pretty cool as we are in the process of moving to Montana!
