|Jo Ellen Reynolds||RE: SA City Cem #4|
Thanks for your comment. I took a moment after your note to find Baby Girl Springall's death certificate. Would you like for me to post it on Find A Grave?
|Mary Russell||Baby Higgins|
I was able to add one more Higgins. Ella Jane and here is the memorial # for her. 108871848
|Mary Russell||William Higgins|
I found every Higgins there is but this Willam Higgins does not have a marker but there are some blank areas that could easily be where his grave is. Some of the older graves have their markers covered over or if it is a metal marker, those just crumble and fall apart. The only Higgins there that died in 1925 is a baby girl.
When I went to take the picture you requested of William, I found a large number of higgins buried besid him. Here is the list of the ones buried by him. I took pictures of all of them and added memorials for them as I am sure they are his relatives.

|Kelly Kerr||Mary Hardcastle Franklin|
Yes I believe her tombstone is off by two years and should be 1855. Her census records indicate she was 2 years older than William Thomas consistently as well as her age was always with a 4...44,54,64 etc. Her birthday was in October so she would turn x5 the same year making her birth year 1855. I think it's easy for even family members to forget their family member will be one year older if they would have had a birthday that same year when they calculate birth year from death. I am sure of who she is because of the Will. If you'd like a copy I can send.
|Nancy Hutzler||Coots in Bethel Cemetery|
Any idea who is in charge of Bethel Cemetery in Katemcy Texas? I noticed lots of headstones in horrible shape and graves needing attention on my visit there. I would love to attend a cemetery cleanup if they organize one. Your enclosure of he Coots grave was full of trash when I was there. I tried to pull out some but, had no tools and it looked like kind of a snake haven.
|Darrin Moore||RE: Hoechster|
Phillip Hoechster's death was sad. The cause of death is part of documenting a person's life.
I found the article on GenealogyBank.com. The site is a pay website with scans of newspapers articles from all over the country. The database has scans of the Springfield, Illinois newspapers from 1831-1929.
Newspaper articles are a great source for genealogy research. Many interesting life stories are documented. The obituary usually have the birth and death dates and names of relatives. Sometimes, as is the case of Phillip, the cause of death is documented.
|Darrin Moore||Phillip Hoechster|
Thanks for the information on Phillip Hoechster.
I found a newspaper article about his death and added it to the memorial. Successful life, but tragic ending.
|Darrin Moore||RE: Saner|
Glad I could help.
Last Friday was the first day in weeks with good weather to visit Calvary.
The Saners are buried in the Phillip and Margaret Hoechster family plot. Hazel [Saner] Davison is also buried in the Hoechster plot beside Edward and Catherine Saner. Was she the daughter of Edward and Catherine Saner?
I deleted the duplicate memorial for Margaret [Ramstetter] Hoechster. (I didn't notice one was already created.) Helene H [Hoechster] Lukeman has been linked to her mother.
I'm not sure but I suspect a lot of them were taken/posted by someone who then left the Find A Grave 'volunteer corps' and subsequently requested all of their photos be removed. Some folks are pretty hard-nosed when it comes to copyrights for some reason.
