|Mary Wiese||RE: Emma M. Denker Wiese|
I just saw your message on my page. I don't think we are related but I did leave flowers for many people with the Wiese name. I felt it was possible to be related in some way back in Germany. Hope you have a good day, sorry that I am not able to be helpful.

|Pennsylvania Lady||RE: Corp Wesley Dale Miller|
First thank you for your service. I hope that you are well and doing fine.
My husband was over there and he too came home. Every now and then he is remorseful about that and wonders why he was spared and not killed.
No war is pleasant and every war takes those that are young and vital. Without those heroes where would we be?
Thank you again,
|Pennsylvania Lady||Corp Wesley Dale Miller|
How are you connected to Wesley Miller?
I saw both memorials and am confused by the family photo you posted. Where is the photo of Wesley? Is he even in that photo?
|Steve & Debbie||RE: Claus & Doris Denker markers|
You are most welcome. It's funny, the very first day I started in this cemetery, I actually asked a question about the Denkers, because it said something about a vault, and being new at this, I wondered what exactly I was looking for. The lady at the office looked them up for me and as it turned out, I had no trouble finding them. They were exactly where they were supposed to be. Thanks.
We were over in the Layton Township Cemetery on Friday and took photos of the graves we found...for some reason, I didn't see the other one you wanted. I did take two other photos, if you would like them. One is a larger Schlotfeldt stone located where the others are buried...and the other is for Homer & Nancy Schlotfeldt. Just let me know and I'll send them to you.
|Christine Masterson||RE: Fred & Carrie's Marker|
I sure can find them if you give me a name. Maybe I can find them just by a search on records. I took Sarah Masterson with me to get the pictures. She is Don Masterson's grand daughter and is only 16. She had her little notebook out making all kinds of notes and smiles every where! It was fun.
|Time Goes By||RE: Thank you !!|
Yeah, I'm the one who gave that feedback the other day - sorry. Plus, they are mowing and getting the cemetery ready for Memorial Day - stuff blowing everywhere!
I'm pretty persistent though, and have now done two complete walkabouts . I also found a couple of more people on the list today as well. My next step will be to go to the Davenport Special Records Libary and get the plat map and burial lists from the city archives.
I made comments under most of the pictures I added today. I hope you have had a chance to read all of them. I may have missed it because I was looking for a plot of burials, but there is actually only one stone - it shows Denker under the west face (ground level stone) and Sievert on the upper base of the north face. There are several names listed, but the ones on the north and east faces are badly degraded and pretty much impossible to read (although I think that Hans A may be at the top of the east face, and it looks like a "nee" name of Cummings-? may be at the bottom of the east face). The south face is completely worn smooth except for the slightest hint of decoration at the top. Unfortunately, the only names still readable are Matilde and infant Hans on the west face, and they are starting to degrade as well. I'm glad I could get some pictures before they get any worse.
If you have any questions about what I found, or if you would like for me to email all of the pictures I took at the site to you, let me know. It may be a while before I get the library, but if I find anything further, I'll let you know. I'm glad I could be of help.

I changed the photos like you suggested. I agree but keep on posting this is important to our family to get as much posted as we can.

No, I am not related, and therefore very happy to be able to tranfer the pages to family.
I have transferred all Schlotfeldt entries that I have made.
