RE: Christian Weiss
Wow! That is amazing! YOU are amazing! Thank you so much for sharing! It is such a pleasure to meet you (and some of our other relatives as well)! ;) My grandmother's father, Ernest, has five children, all of whom are still living. I love the pictures. I have never seen Carrie Weiss (that I am aware of anyway). May I share some pictures with them (this will likely include Facebook)? Perhaps this may stir up a whole new conversation and encourage people to share their photos with us as well. I'd sure like to see what Christian looked like; I can only imagine that he looks somewhat like Carrie.
I hope someday that I will be able to repay your kindness.
Sincerely,
Alison

Hi Linda, Carrie Weiss and Louis Freese are my great-great grandparents. I have spent the past few months putting together a family tree based on information that my grandmother and her cousin collected before she died twenty years ago. I have very little information on the Weiss ancestry and I was wondering if we could get in touch. Thanks for your time!

Christian Weiss
Hello, I was wondering if you know anything about Christian Weiss? He was the son of Johann "John" Weiss whose memorial number is: 51963777. The other siblings are listed and have links, but there seems to be no sign of Christian's whereabouts. Are you relative? Perhaps we might like to keep in touch? :)
Thank you for your time.

Thank you
Linda,
Thank you for adding the new photo on Everette Hess's memorial. This is a much better photo than the one I sent you several years ago. Could you please use this new photo and replace it on Hazel Hess's memorial? You can delete the original old one if you want. Thank you.

Thank you for offering to share the photos but I am not related to the Freese family.
The Northbrook Historical Society in Northbrook IL will give the photos a home if you are looking for a place to donate them, or you could email scans or mail copies - see http://www.northbrookhistory.org/. They keep files on all the pioneer families in this area.
Thank you for creating this memorial!

RE: Midcap
Hello Linda, My great great grandfather should be your Elizabeth's brother. His name was Daniel R. Midcap and he was the son of John Midcap and Elizabeth Ramey. John and Elizabeth married in Clark Co., IN and then lived in Jennings Co. Since Daniel was married in Jennings Co. in 1829 and Elizabeth was married in Jennings Co., in 1826, it is presumed by researchers that they were siblings. Also 2 other females were married in Jefferson Co. (I think close by) near the same time frame, so they are presumed siblings too. There is not proof that I know of but if we could find a will or probate records for John Midcap, we could probably find out. I have family group sheets for these people and can send them to you if you don't have this information. A woman in MO (researcher) gave me a lot of information about them. My email address is: judyb6@cox.net so we can communicate better that way, probably. I live in Scottsdale, AZ. I have the copies made if you would like them . We can compare information....Judy

RE: Reed questions
Synthia's maiden name is indeed Neff, daughter of Daniel Neff who did die in Carroll County, IN -- there's a whole cemetery of Neffs and Speeces (her mother's folks) there. But Synthia and GW Reed never lived there after their marriage, according census records. I'm sure you found the correct Synthia. FYI, Father Daniel's Find A Grave page: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSvcid=234327&GRid=11472543&

RE: Reed questions
Hi Linda,

RE: ANNA
The 1870 census for George William REED shows a daughter Annie, born about 1868 in Indiana:(https://www.familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.2/MHL6-KC3/p_351074906

RE: SYNTHIA
She's my ancestor and GW's first wife. The 1871 death date has me a bit stumped, though, since I thought Cynthia/Synthia Ann (Neff) REED died between Apr-Sept 1861, not 1871, presumably in childbirth with my ancestor Josephine L. Reed b. 13 Apr 1861. GW remarried 8 Sept 1861 to Ruth T. Quaintance, widow of Aken Richards: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.2/M6FX-1NW/p4 and she appears as his wife in the same 1870 census mentioned above. I suppose GW and Synthia could have divorced, but that's pretty unusual for the era, especially after 3 kids.

QUESTION: Are you POSITIVE that the tombstone says Synthia died in 1871, not 1861? The tombstone photo on Find A Grave (which from the initials I assume you took, thank you!) is too hard to read conclusively, since the date is deep down in the grass. I am really eager to know the answer to this puzzle! No rush, but could you possibly double-check the tombstone the next time you are over there?

Cheers, and thank you,
- Robin (robin@robinagarwal.com for faster response)
