JUNE 2014 UPDATE: Approximately 13,000 Memorials (for various cemeteries in southern Wisconsin) were transferred to me from THIS CONTRIBUTOR. They were originally added by this INACTIVE Contributor. I am gradually working on fixing many errors & duplicates, and making corrections as I can determine. By all means, willing to transfer to family and/or others who have more information. Just ask.

RE: St. Joseph's, Waterloo - DOWD
I knew we had more to do at St. Joseph's. I found another Dowd marker I had missed. Thank you for helping me thru St. Joe's in 2014. After I created a bunch of duplicates there I almost quit! Thanks, dale

RE: John Greeley - Tweedale Cemetery
Hello, I believe I solved the mystery.

Theory: When they built the plaque, they mistakenly included my John Greeley's service record information.

As documented on my Account, I believe the correct information is:

John M. Greeley, Private from Wolf River, Wis.
Company G 88th Ill. Infantry
Enlisted: Aug 27, 1864
Discharged: M.O. Jun 9, 1865, as Corp'l

RE: John Greeley - Tweedale Cemetery
Thanks for your time in this matter.

I'm basing my assumption on an Obit and the fact I could not find any other name (associated with the 134th) remotely close to "Crilley."

1. I have an Obit that links my John Crilley to the 134th. Illinois Company K volunteer Army.
2. It also states he was born in Rochester, NY.

3. I discovered an Illinois State archive document that ties facts 1 & 2 to a John Greeley.

I was baffled by the chance he would be buried in Kewaunee, WI. Hi wife was Mary, but I do not have record of her maiden name. In addition, I do not have any census records for John Crilley or Mary prior to 1880.

Are you on If so, I'm happy to share my artifacts with you. Or I could email you. Thanks in advance for your additional time. Regards

John Greeley - Tweedale Cemetery
Thank you so so much for your work. Thanks to you, I was able to locate the burial site of my GGGrandfather John Crilley. (1845-1914) Like many other Irishmen, he utilized an alias during his service in the Civil War.

Sincerest regards,

Christian Flores

Pearl G Sage
I am working on a lead, got a picture of Pearl, Hazel Oegerle, and a man that is her 3rd husband, a Mr. Archer. Found a Clarence Monroe Archer buried in Fort Riley, also buried there is a Pearl M. Archer. Don't know about the "M". This is from someone who knew her and him and has the picture. I'm adding to my tree, if I can get it done tonight.

Thanks for the transfer. Couldn't help wanting to add his history. Now I know why he had a musket and powder horn on his marker. It was good that he had friends to give him a proper burial and a fitting marker marker. Dale:)

RE: Norway ancestors
You're welcome. Try this link; it should take you to the farm on the map. Marit died at the Viste property and Ole at the adjacent Nordviste property 650 m to the northwest.

RE: Question
Thank you for asking about the Anderson marker, possibly Elizabeth Baker Ducomb who m. 23 Apr. 1841 to Geoerge Anderson.She was age 57 at that time, and was dead prior to 8 Feb. 1862 when George m. Euphenia B. Sinclair.

I am not 100% positive this stone was for his 2nd wife, Elizabeth (he m. 3 times).
Yes, you may transfer the memorial of Richard L. Anderson to me. Thank you.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to locate the cemetery stone of George Anderson, apparently quite well known in that county. Thank you.

Thanks for the compliment. It's appreciated. You have accomplished a great deal here, and in a much shorter time period. I've placed as many family photos and stories on Findagrave as I could. I hope they survive because Findagrave is possibly the most permanent record available to me. I hope they survive.
