RE: Ohlsdorfer Friedhof
Thanks for your note Barbara, I am glad you like the photos. This cemetery is beautiful, the largest I have ever been to. They have local businesses that go to the cemeteries and maintain the plots and many are meticulously maintained by these gardeners with beautiful landscaping, I have not seen anything close to that here in the states.

The grave "recycling" seems to occur anywhere between 10-25 years from the date the last person is buried, so if there were many active burials in a plot then you will find older graves, otherwise they are removed and reused. I have photographed 100's of markers that had a sticker on them marked for removal by a certain date, this is one way the cemetery notifies the family. Here is a memorial photo that shows a large family plot with burials over a long period of time and a well maintained plot versus the one to the left which is not maintained and has a sticker on it for eventual removal -

I looked at your requests and they are over 100 years old. If the family was extremely wealthy they may have bought the plot perpetually or the cemetery may maintain it due to historical importance (military markers, famous citizens, etc.), otherwise I think they may be gone now. Can't know for sure without the cemetery confirming.

As for the cemetery not responding to your E-mail, perhaps the recipient does not read English? It may be worth your time to post your E-mail to the translation forum and ask for someone to help you write it in German - there are a few people in the forum from Germany that I am sure would help you. If you receive the response in German they can help with that as well (Google Translate also works to get most of the details).

Hope this helps and thanks again for your kind words regarding my cemetery photos!

May I use the photos you have posted for Mary Magdalene VanBebber 17994682 and kin? I am very distantly related. Thank you for your reply and for the work you do on Find A Grave. JoAnn

RE: Harley Pein Beck
I have absolutely no clue where he is buried. All I know is that you made a page for him in Willamette National Cemetery and he is not in Willamette National Cemetery. I did a bit of checking to see if I might be able to find out where he is buried but couldn't and that is why I said that MAYBE he is buried in CA because I don't know where he is buried.
There is a web site that keeps up to date records on who is buried in all of the National Military Cemeteries and Harley is not listed in it so he is not in any National Military Cemetery.
Just because you were in the military does not require you to be buried in a National Military cemetery. It is an option available to service members when they die. It is very inexpensive to be buried in a National Military Cemetery. It is a very big benefit to military members whereas it is VERY expensive to be buried in a public cemetery, right? Some military members do not want to be buried in a National Military Cemetery and choose to pay the thousands and thousands of dollars it costs to do so for various reasons, only one of which would be because they could afford it. Not being buried in a National Military Cemetery has absolutely nothing to do with a person's service record.
For whatever reason, Harley did not get buried in a National Military Cemetery. It could be that he was cremated and wanted his ashes scattered in the ocean or somewhere. Some people choose to do that. He may be buried in a public cemetery somewhere though??
A death certificate should say where he was buried.

RE: Harley Pein Beck
I checked a web site for a possible local obit and all I got was a Soc Sec death index entry that says the last place he lived was in Santa Rosa, CA. I strongly suspect that he is buried in CA.
The Soc Sec death index does not say where a person died, only the last place they were living, or at least the last address the person had as where to send their Soc Sec check too. Most of the time the last known address is where a person died but not always. Sometimes that is not where they were living or where they died. Sometimes that is the address of a person who was managing that person's final affairs especially people who could not take care of those kinds of things themselves and were in a care home or something.
No idea where he got buried. I know he did not get buried in any National Military anywhere in the US though.

Harley Pein Beck
You just added Harley Pein Beck to Find A Grave. Do you have a reason for adding him to Willamette National Cemetery? Did he just get reburied or something? He is not listed as being buried in that cemetery in records.
