Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love history, genealogy and cemetery hunting.
The tree in the photo is a Burr Oak called the Half-Way Tree that was paced off by Native American runners as the half way point between the Mississippi and Lake Michigan. My ancestor William Rice lived very near this tree and died in 1857.

In about 1861 some Native Americans spoke with a local farmer and told him to never cut down this tree because it marked the midpoint for their journey. So they never did.

RE: Mitchell Lot
They know about her - not so long along they had an auction of some watercolors one of her students did. It's amazing how many people in the cemetery have no headstones, especially women.

Mitchell Lot
I uploaded a photo of the Mitchell lot, where, according to cemetery records, Ella is buried. She has no headstone, and her name is not engraved on the family monument, though she died later than the other Mitchells, unmarried and at the poor farm. She probably couldn't afford those costs.

RE: Ella P Smith
When I see a photo request I know someone is doing research, so I try to dig a little. I've seen watercolors done by some of her students.

Ella Smith at Oak Hill
I poked around the Mitchell plot this morning - no headstones for either Ella or Marian. If you want any of these folks transferred to you just let me know. I am simply a volunteer recordings all sorts of people, hoping to be helpful.

RE: Rosenheimer memorials
Thanks for adding the info. It makes me happy to think a descendant down the line will not only find their ancestor (because of you) but can get some interesting biographical tidbits to go with the memorial.

I did also put in requests to you to connect brothers- John 37134946 ; Max 37134567 ; and Joseph 37134710 Rosenheimer with their parents Lehman Rosenheimer 37130469 and Barbara Herbst 37130563 . (Or I sure hope I did...)

It would be nice to connect them all and then they would also be connected to their three siblings already listed on Lehman & Barbara's memorials.

Thanks again for all the Rosenheimer help!

RE: My sympathy
Thank you for your condolences. John loved Find A Grave & was always eager to get out to the cemeteries & take pictures & clean around stones if necessary. I miss him tremendously but will continue to upkeep all our memorials in his memory.

RE: Ruth Baggett
Now you have me wondering. Think I'll go to Clerk of Courts office and see if I can locate the Death Record. That should give us an exact date, possibly a correct name spelling, then can look for an obit. in Green Bay newspapers of that time-frame. It might yield the name of the funeral home that handled Ruth's arrangements.
