In fourth grade, many,many years ago, I became involved with this wonderful hobby. Thank you for having this website!|
Cemetery: euphemism coined by the early Christian writers. It is a Greek word for dormitory, a place to sleep.
"...passing down memories is the strongest link in the gossamer bridge that binds us as people."
In eternal honor of our ancestors
Who left behind so much,
Who started here with so little,
That we might have everything.
Genealogy is the warp on which the fabric of history is woven. It is the most immediate, personal kind of history, and for many the most satisfying kind,rooted in the pervasive values of family and heritage. It is an essential part of the one great task each of us is called upon to undertake----the exploration of who we are.
From the Vesterheim Genealogical Center and Naeseth Library literature. Madison,Wisconsin.

You wouldn't by any chance have a map of the plots for Highland? I wasn't able to find stones for your other requests, but might be able to have better success if I knew more about the layout.
Sure was beautiful up there today!
Glad you found out

Large Cemetery. You can search for a list and find a plot number and I will photo the marker.

It would be nice to photograph all the stones. Let me give it some thought, and I'll see what I can do.
|Kathleen Englebretson||RE: George Deppert|
Here is the biggest problem that causing the most confusion--somebody decided that the Edgar Cemetery and Saint Johns Catholic Cemetery is the SAME cemetery. They even added that note to the link. They are NOT the same cemetery. They are next to each other and because the Edgar cemetery has no marker, it looks like one cemetery. The first day that I was there, there was a lady there who was very familiar with the cemetery. She was nice enough to walk me through the cemetery and go stone to stone pointing out where the boundaries were. I also found markers that went entire length of the cemetery that showed where the boundaries were. A couple of days later another cemetery worker came and removed the markers. I think they were there just so that they could find the boundaries in the snow, I was glad I was just finishing my pictures when he got there.
As for libraries, when it comes to Edgar, it could be be Marshfield or Wausau. My first guess would be Wausau. The Marshfield Library does have an Obit Index on their site. It isn't complete but I would check it before doing a lot of running around. I can't transfer the photo but I can transfer the link to you and you should delete yours and edit mine. His wife is in the Edgar Cemetery and I also did her photo.

There isn't a stone but I did get a picture of the plot/space marker with assistance from the cemetery staff. It's located a couple of rows down from this sculpture.
Willow Pond Knoll Garden
Lot 11000 Space 25, Between Spelman Road and Pond Road, at the top of the hill.
I'm very surprised that there isn't at least a military marker - perhaps "they", someone from the government, weren't notified that he was buried there so they could erect a stone for him. It's probably through the Veteran's Affairs office.
|Sharon Lavash Hawkins||RE: Dr. Romaine Bruns|
I'll try to get over there this weekend. I have a print-out of the area and hopefully can either find the stone or at least get a picture of where it should be.

I know how you feel. No space between the n and h.

Its a huge cemetery with all flat markers so difficult to find one without a location. Several people I contacted have e-mailed a request to the cemetery as a relative and have gotten a location that they passed on to me to find.
Highlands biggest problem is their recordkeeping--worst I have ever seen.No alphabetical lists or anything. Just a card file with no cross reference. They quote 10 minutes to look up one name.--unbelieveable!
