#59902730 Hi Cathy! I have a question about William A. Mace. Are you related to him?, or are you acquainted with anybody in his family? He is listed in the DeKalb County Honor Roll on page 27 and his picture is on page 26. I recently purchased a copy of this book and there were family photos and letters that he wrote to his folks in 1917 and 1918. I was going to send these treasures to the Joiner Room at Sycamore but would much rather they went to family. I will scan some of this and add it to his memorial later today.
67913120 Elizabeth Stupfel Mueller Hi Cathy, her name was Elizabeth Stupfel and she married Anton Mueller (that name went back and forth in the records as Miller or Mueller but it was originally Mueller). She was born in Memmelshoffen, Bas-Rhin, Alsace France (I have 11 Feb 1813 as the date) to Jean Stupfel (1779-1835) and Francoise (Franciska) Wolffstirn (1780-1846) - these are the correct spellings of the parents' names (I have images of original birth and marriage documents). Elizabeth emigrated with her mother and brother Jean (1809-1899) and Jean's young family about 1846. Jean's wife Madeleine Acker (1814-1891) was my first cousin (4x removed).
Elizabeth married Anton Mueller about 1848 in Wisconsin and they had two children, Maria (Mary) A. Mueller (1850-1914) and John P. Mueller (1854-1923). John married Susanna Koltes and had four children. Maria never married. Judy
RE: South Grove Cemetery Illinois Thanks for the correct dates for Mary Thompson - I do believe it is her as the notes for her name state she's the wife of A C Thompson. All of the names are from a cemetery transcription by Sally Dunkelberger and Jim Niewold, which can be found at http://dekalb.ilgenweb.net/Cemeteries/South_Grove_files/southgrove_a-c.htm. None of the names (or that page) comes up when searching Google, so I added them here so hopefully relatives could find out burial locations of their ancestors, even if I came up empty handed in that cemetery.
Please let me know if you'd like me to transfer her memorial to you, I'd be happy to do it.
