RE: Your Photo Requests - Lake View - Oshkosh
Hi - Thanks for your nice note! It's a start!
I was pleasantly surprised to find the cemetery office was very nice to provide the locations and very friendly. I made a quick call during the noon hour and I was able to obtain the locations (without being a family member!).
It was in the high 50's today . . . and most all of the snow has melted . . . looks like winter may be over!!

Request - Ronald Barnes
Hi Mike - I checked with the cemetery office and I understand this person is inside. I will make another trip back when the building is open - hopefully in the few days or during the weekend when I am out running errands. Also, I'll be able to take pixs of Geo Luebke, Robert Luebke and Daniel Stryzewski. I was running out of daylight.

Your Photo Requests
Hi - As soon as the weather gets a warmer and the snow melts, I would be glad to fulfill your photo requests at the Lake View Cemetery, Oshkosh - Winnebago County, Wisconsin. In the meantime, would you kindly contact the cemetery to locate plot / burial location? The cemetery has a web page (below) and it includes their phone number or email address to obtain this information. It will make it easier to fulfill this request; as I am not sure if this info is released to non-family.
