RE: William Craig
If he died in 1840 he is not in Oakdale the cemetery started about 1860. You might want to move him to another location. Maybe Davenport City Cemetery.

Sarah Moses
As you can see, Sarah's tombstone is in two pieces. I found it laying against a tree just to the right of Jennett's tomestone. Barb

RE: Charles Knaak Info
I visited Trinity Cemetery but did not find Charles' headstone. I looked for both Knaak and Jeup, but found none where it should be. That most likely means that his grave doesnt have a headstone. I snapped a couple of shots of the area, where it should be.
Worse news...I went to the Wayne County clerks office hoping to find some marriage or death information. I'm sorry I was wrong before, they charge $11.50 to look for each document (paid, whether or not one is found). The only exception are for marriage records before 1937.
Sorry. I did try.

RE: Charles Knaak Info
I'm sorry I dont have much more to offer. I will look around Charles' burial plot, to see if there are any others.

It's pretty obvious these marriages and deaths most likely took place in Detroit. So you might want to go and search (or hire a researcher) to the Wayne County Clerks office (downtown Detroit). To look and transcribe the information, it's free (except for $10 parking). I know you said you've checked at the state and county level; but the name may be mispelled.
You might want to write a letter to Trinity, and ask them directly if Anna, Peter or Caroline are there. It is of course reasonable to think that they were buried there. (Give them a few weeks to answer.)
Perhaps check to see if there is a Wayne County Genealogy society? They might have more options for you.
Is there an LDS research site, near you? They may be able to offer research suggestions.
Best of luck,

Charles Knaak Info
1900 Federal Census: He was 53 and lived in Detroit with wife Carolina (married abt 1870). He was born in June 1842 and had immigrated from Germany abt 1875. They had five children living with him. Anna was born July 1889.
Caroline was born Oct. 1849 in Germany.

Family tree on Ancestry: Caroline's maiden name was Baille. Anna was born in 1888 in Michigan. She married Peter John Jeup Nov. 22, 1919. And she died in Detroit. She and Peter had five children; of which one may be living.

City Directories on Ancestry: Charles is listed in few city directories (Detroit) in late 1890's. He's listed as a Laborer and lived on 195 Jay Street. His sons Ernest and Paul are also shown at that same address. Ernest was a casket-maker while Paul was clerk.

If you want me to make a pdf and send these documents to you...let me know your email address (write directly to my email address, shown on my profile page).

When you find the date/location of their death, then you might want to find an obit. Also, you can ask a RAOGK volunteer to copy or obtain a death record from Wayne County (

Caroline shows up in the 1910 and 1920 census, living in Detriot. But I didnt find her in the 1930...she may have died between 1920 and 1930. In 1920, she was abt 70 yrs old and lived with Anna and Peter.

Charles Knaak
Trinity Cemetery wrote back; Charles is in Lot 68, Section I. I had also asked about Anna and Caroline, but they didn't list a burial location for them. I assume they weren't interred at Trinity, however I'll look in the area when I go.
Please give me a couple of weeks.
