Erma Patterson

In answer to your note below:

Erma isn't in the Morris County Cemetery Records and there isn't a stone for her that I have found. If you know for certain that she is buried in Greenwood, let me know and I'll create a memorial for her - or you could create one.

From you:
Just wondered why Erma Floy Patterson, daughter of James & Eva Mae Patterson wasn't on here? She was born in March of 1893, in Council Grove, Ks. She lived with her grandparents, James & Martha Watkins.

Donald, the infant son of Loy and Mabel Hall, was born and died in 1909, not 1912. Sorry!!

James Patterson
Hi cousin! I have been doing a lot of research into James' family. Loy was married first and had two sons with his first wife, Mabel Hall. They were Donald who died in infancy in 1912 and Jack who was born in 1911. His parents divorced in 1914. His mother died in 1916 and his father died in 1918 at a Louisiana boot camp of spinal meningitis. Custody of Jack was given to Mabel's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph W. Hall. He was eventually called Jack Hall. His real name was Frederick H. Patterson. I found him in a census living with his grandmother, Mrs. Hall, when he was 19 and he was listed as Jack Hall. I don't know how to find anymore information about him. Loy's second wife was Gertrude Alexander and they were married about a year before Loy died. I haven't found that they had any children. I can't find anything about Erma Flo or Floy. I still think James may have married Dora E. Johnson and I'm trying to find out if she was somehow related to Mrs. Ed Ruch (Ida). I have been on and they have a Council Grove, Kansas on line which has been so helpful. I found one note that said Mrs. Ed Ruch had been called to Oklahoma because James Patterson and wife were very ill with typhoid. I don't know if they are connected somehow or not. I can't find any information about Dora and I have written for death certificates for Dora and James and the State says they don't have one for them. Dora I found later died in Arizona at the Ed Ruch home. I wonder if Ida could have been her daughter. I don't know where James died for sure. Dora died a year after he did So....I have found out quite a bit of information but nothing to provide me information to get death certificates although I could probably get Dora's from Arizona. I just haven't done that yet. Kansas wouldn't let me get any certificates because I am not a direct relative! I was so mad. I had to resend the request using my husband's name and information. How crazy is that! I still want to go to Council Grove sometime soon but I haven't made it yet. Being retired is really busy - ha! Miss talking to you. Please stay in touch. I'll be glad to send you the info I have found if you would like to have it!

Salome Wurtz
Illinois death records for Michael J. Wurtz (d. 11 Dec 1931) show Salome Schacht as his mother.

RE: Luessenhop Family
Hi Lisa,
I just did a quick search and found people in Hannover, Germany looking for Luessenhop family. I just contacted him. Do you know where your Luessenhop is from?

Charles Riegel or Reigle
If you are related to Charles, whose mother was Mary Jane (Forney) Reigle or Riegel, I have an interesting newspaper article to scan and send you from 1933, just a few months before Mary Jane passed. If you love history......
Please get back to me,
Deborah (Hoffman) Weiner

RE: Watkins/Patterson
Hi Lisa,
I hope you viewed all the photos that I took of the Watkins plot. I'm not sure how Eva Patterson is connected. I hope I got it right that Watkins was her maiden name. I would have assumed that Patterson was her married name except that there were two other Patterson stones.
If you know for sure, please let me know. Or if you would like me to transfer management to you, I'd be happy to do that.
The rose bush was pretty but rather thorny, so I didn't get a good photo of the east side of the main stone.
That's interesting to know that your dad's GGP deeded the land for the high school. They've done a lot of renovations on it this past year.
If there is any info that you want that I might be able to find for you, please don't hesitate to ask.

Have a blessed day.
