They are both buried in Calvary Catholic Cemetery in Marshall not Marshall Cemetery. I have posted pictures on their memorials there. If you would like me to transfer them to you, please make a request and I will be glad to do so if you are related. Also remove your photo requests if you would.

Dear T. Boudreau,
I have been researching Holdgrafer geneaology for 50 years. My great-grandfather was Henry Holdgrafer (1843-1913), whose first wife was Regina Luning Holdgrafer (1845-1871). I am descended from him and his third wife, Catherine Goodman Holdgrafer (1854-1915). I noticed the Find A Grave entry you posted for Regina Luning Holdgrafer. I thought you might be interested in some information that my late grandmother, Magdalena Neuroth Holdgrafer (1886-1979), provided me. The original Immaculate Conception Church and Cemetery were about two miles west of the present church and cemetery in Haverhill, Iowa. The old church was moved to town from the country in the 1880s, but the old cemetery was left where it was, and a new cemetery was started in town. About 1940, they decided to turn the old cemetery into farmland, so they exhumed what bodies they could find. My grandmother told me that all they could find at Regina Luning Holdgrafer's grave was a button from the dress she had been buried in. I thought you might find this story interesting, as I did. Good luck with your genealogical endeavors! If you would like to contact me, my e-mail is: email@example.com
|Roma Pollock Lovell||RE: Cerulean|
Thank you for the great tips about contacting relatives (that I don't know...ha) that may have photos of my own gggrandparents...I have some that a recently late aunt had gathered, that I am still going through, but, really interested in my Dad's side, which is really proving to be difficult to find info on...I am named after an aunt that died when she was 3, same first and last name, but can find absolutely nothing in any manner that I search for her...gonna try to look some more! Will get out to Cerulean as soon as the rain lets up a little...I claimed a couple of other cemeteries to do photos in, and hate that I wasn't able to get to one in time before the expiration, so I will just take the photos and then claim them, so I won't claim them and keep someone else from getting to them first...thanks for all your help...so appreciate it... and I definitely don't take other's work as fact...I am looking for the proof, for myself...thanks again...Roma

Well, where is my brain? It hasn't been 2 weeks and we were snowed under...max of about 6 inches, but it almost cripples us here...we have salt trucks and plows, but the back roads are pretty much forgotten. But, it only takes a couple of days before it ends up melting away anyway...how quickly I forget about how it was in MA when I was there in mid March about 4 yrs ago,...it had been 70 the week before, and the night before I got there, they got almost a foot of snow...I am sure it will be some time before anyone gets out for a stroll in a cemetery there, I suspect...I have a couple of questions that I was wondering if you could answer for me...since I am only a few months into my genealogy search...could you recommend any helpful websites for finding records/info in genealogy searches? I am a member at ancestry.com, plus Family Search.com...just wondered if there are any more helpful websites that are possibly free..?? And, when going on a search for a gravesite, should you ask the church or office, or go to a library for a search in a book of cemeteries, to find the gravesite, or is there another way to find them, without doing a complete walkaround the entire grounds? I know that Ebeneezer is getting pretty big, but, it is nothing compared to a lot of others in size...How do most people approach the task? Thanks for being so patient with me... :)
|Roma Pollock Lovell||Cerulean|
By the way...I will try to get out to the Cerulean cemetery for you, but have a few more requests to fulfil that I claimed, at Ebeneezer, and at Green Hill Memorial Gardens here in Hopkinsville, so as soon as I get them taken care of, I will try to do those for you, if no one has claimed them by then...Just curious how many people are there in this area, that are active in finding graves...do you know? I requested a search for my grandparents in MA...and it said there were 159 people that live within 5 miles of there, and no one has claimed to search for them...just wondering about that...since that was my first search...and I just joined...
|Roma Pollock Lovell||RE: Thank You!!|
Hi...not a problem...it was quite a bit further out than I realized...about 12 miles out the Pilot Rock Road...and no one was at the church, so I had to do a walk through the entire cemetery, which took a bit...which I wasn't prepared for...(my first cemetery search) so I didn't have a coat...got a little nippy...and drank a cup of coffee on the way...well, I am sure you can imagine where this is going...ha...lesson learned...don't drink coffee before going to do a search...by the way, I have some more photos, that I took, cuz I wanted to make sure I got it all covered...if you like, I will send them to you...Liney and S.H.'s markers were one and the same, just marked on opposite sides of the stone...and on another side of the stone, was some type of epitaph or poem...couldn't make it out, and I was kind of in a hurry to find a bathroom, at that point! ha...I have to go back out there again, to find 4 more people that I couldn't locate that day, and I can try to make out the inscription when I go...some of it was covered by moss...you may be able to blow up what I have, though, and see what it says...do you want the rest of the photos? I'd be glad to send them to you....Roma (firstname.lastname@example.org)

I did not see any under that name either & it is not a very big cemetery.

I was visiting Nora Cemetery in Rice Lake this past week and located the RL Young family plot. However, there was not a marker for Mary. I uploaded a photo of the corner marker. I also have a photo of Elmer's stone and a photo of a partial stone dated 1895-1919 if you would like them. The Nora cemetery listing does show that Rufus L, Mary, Elmer and Bessie are buried there in the SECOND Addition, lot 250.
If I can be of more help, I am in Rice Lake fairly often.
I also have or will have several Fischenich obits on http://genealogytrails.com/minn/nobles/index.html

His obit is on his memorial on Find A Grave
