Anna Magdalena Schrader Weers
Find A Grave #114272794

Do you have any information where Anna's parents are buried? Her father, Fred Schrader, was living with Anna & Albert Weers in the Iowa 1925 State census. He is listed as widowed, but I haven't found when or where they are buried.

Any help you could provide would be appreciated.

we are related
You are my second cousin--we share great grandparents Lawrence Cosgrove and Honora Troy. I would like to compare family notes with you.

RE: Mary Byrne Cosgrove Wamsley
Hi Cousin :)
Hmmm, seems like religious shenanigans are afoot. Edward may have converted but is definitely not buried with Mary. I have seen both grave sites and they are in the vicinity of Villard but 2 different cemeteries. My Mom would like to know your Mom's maiden name or how your line connects back to Mary. If you feel ok about sharing more info, would you like to email each other directly? I am curious about Mary being married to Lawrence? The information we have for Mary Byrne Cosgrove Wamsley had a 1st husband named Michael Cosgrove and they emigrated from Ireland to the US most likely thru New Orleans. They had at the time 3 boys: John, William and Lawrence. A daughter was born, Maryann Cosgrove, in Kentucky? Michael seems to have died maybe in Kentucky or prior as Mary went on to relatives in the Detroit area. The Wamsleys were in Ontario across the river from Detroit. Mary married Edward Wamsley in Ontario in 1856. We think Stanley Twnship. This info is from a Wamsley family member who traveled quite a bit an did this research in the 80's. His correspondence is quite lengthy. Nothing is foolproof and this is why my Mom and I are running around the countryside trying to substantiate things. It's been so much fun. By the way, I did get a chance to go to the Calvary Cemetery in Sauk Centre and Mary is definitely not there so the picture of the Calvary stone carving on your citation is incorrect for Mary but would be correct if added to the citation for Lawrence. How wonderful your mother knows so much and is staying sharp. I hope she's writing a book - people who live that long have seen so many changes in the world and have a perspective the younger generations need to hear. Take care, nice to "meet" you :)

DeWitt Clinton Huntoon photo...
I was wondering where you got the excellent photo of DeWitt Clinton Huntoon that you posted at

He was a granduncle of mine, and it's always great to see new "discoveries"...

Thanks for any replies!

Thurston Workman at Forest Home Cemetery
Good morning Sir/Ma'am. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to contact Forest Home Cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) for your photo request(s), ask them whether or not there is a grave marker, and then either post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

Should you choose not to accept this mission, your photo request will most likely continue to go unfulfilled. This message will not self destruct in five seconds. Good luck! Ace

His memorial:

Forest Home is a massively humongous cemetery with well over 100,000 burials, and the information is vital in order to photograph a grave for you. Forest Home disavows all photo volunteers, refusing to aid them in finding graves, so your mission is indispensable and integral to helping fulfill your photo request.

From the Find A Grave Dossier: All personnel are advised that Find A Grave states it is the responsibility of the photo requestor to provide the grave plot (section and lot number) to assist the volunteer photographers.

Mission Success: Last year I successfully completed 200 photo missions at Forest Home Cemetery that had the grave location provided by the photo requestor. In just over a year I have successfully concluded over 1,400 photo missions with over 600 already successfully completed in 2014.

Mission Failure: Impossible

RE: John Archibald Lindsey and wife Olga Lindsey
Hello Annamarie,

You asked me to post the grave marker for John and Olga Lindsey's memorial that I set up for them. You photo request was claimed by another contributor and it is now attached to their memorials. Since you requested it from me I went ahead and attached the photo that I took to set up for the memorial for you.

Thank you for the additional information you gave me for them. I have added it to their memorials and some information I add for Olga.

I hope you have a nice holiday as well….

RE: John Wesley Scott & Jane Scott Moore
I am so glad that I was able to help you find your relatives. If it wasn't for taking a shovel with me I probably wouldn't have found a couple of them. It makes me want to go there and clean the cemetery up and try to piece headstones together. I wish you the best on your family search!
