Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am John Edward Bett, son of Edward John Bett and Marion Martha Placzek Bett. I am married to Rae Jean Grahn Bett and we have three children and six grandchildren. We reside in Waupun, Wisconsin. I am retired from the Wisconsin Department of Corrections, where I served as Warden of Dodge Correctional Institution and later as Administrator of the DOC Division of Adult Institutions in Madison. We are members of St. Joseph Church in Waupun. St. Joe's has oversight of Calvary Cemetery in Waupun. I am willing to take pictures of gravesites in Calvary Cemetery as well as in other nearby local cemeteries such as Lake Emily Cemetery, or Riverside Memorial Park in Fox Lake. I have research interests in the Bett, Slonske, Placzek, Skiba, Grahn, Hornung, Schultz and Wirkus families.

Marriage dates
Right, they are only stored internally and are only used to display spouses in the correct order. If there is only one spouse it's not needed, but maybe in the future they will list those dates, just guessing on that.

RE: Wedding Dates
When you click on [Link family members] this screen pops up, where you can plug in memorial numbers for parents or a spouse.

- Father:
- Mother:

- Spouse:
- - Year Married (optional)

- Spouse #2:
- - Year Married (optional)

It's ONLY in the Spouse area where a year of marriage can be added, and that is never visible on the actual memorial page.

Hope this helps, & makes sense!

RE: Peggy Martin
According to what I found, she is the d/o Boyd and Anne (Fitzpatrick) Porter. She had two brothers, Bill and Bud, both deceased.

Hope that helps, Kathy

Peggy Martin
You sent me an edit indicating her burial location as Block 7 Lot 39 Grave 3, yet on her husband's memorial you indicate his burial location as Block 7 Lot 34 Grave 1. Since they share the same headstone, I was just wondering?

RE: Duplicate Deletions
Dear John,

Thank you for all the wonderful work you have done and continue to do at Calvary Cemetery in Waupun. I mean no harm as I may point out duplicate memorials and find other information to add to some of the memorials. I am on alot and sometimes can find information that might be helpful to add to some of your memorials that don't have much info. Thank you again, for all your efforts regarding Calvary. It is alot!

Grahn family
Have you any information on Christian and Louisa Grahn? Their daughter, my g-g-grandmother Mathilda C. Grahn was married to Herman Hemp and they lived in Jefferson and Neillesville, WI, finally moved to Valley City, ND. Her obituary names a brother Fred Grahn and sister Pauline Grahn of Wimbledon, ND, at the time of Mathilde's death (1921), and in Germany Herman Grahn and Minnie Schame. Have you researched the Grahn family and have any information on Christian, Fred or Louise? Thank you.
