I'm a mother of two; happily married, and I happen to love history and historical facts. I try to fill in as many details as possible when I include data on our personal family genealogy, as well as data I assist others to gathering.|
My family tree includes my husbands ancestor's / my ancestor's, as well as aunts, uncle's and on throughout multiple generations.
If I can help, let me know (but please keep in mind I have recently returned to being a Insurance Agent, so I am not available as much as before to visit & photograph headstones as I'd like). If for some reason I can't, please don't be offended, I'll do my best! Best wishes to you and yours!
[BTW, I changed and removed my email address for public display due to recently having my account hacked...so I have canceled my old email address and set up a new one. Feel free to email me on here and I'll get back to you ASAP...God Bless!]

My grandparents are both buried in the Lilly cemetery. My Grandpa Pete passed away in 1942, so to answer your question, it is correct. Thank you so much for all you do. I'm sincerely sorry about the temporary markers I placed there a couple of years ago. Something nicer should have been placed there 70 years ago. For whatever reason, it did not get done. I was there when they placed my Grandma next to him. And as a kid, I visited there many times. I always felt bad that they didn't have a marker and after I pass, no one would realize they were even there. They are buried in the same plot as my Grandmother's sister, Lillie and her husband.

You are very welcome! I have deep family roots in Clay County and I'm always happy to visit the area. I'm glad that I could get the photo for you!
Here's a weird question...does the Lilly Cemetery look as those 80 years ago, one would have to take a boat to cross the river in order to get there? I'm just putting stories together and wonder if this would give us a clue.

Thank you for your hard work and hours put in on this cemetery. If you should find Carl Ferdinand Ulbrich, you will be the mystery solver of over sixteen years of work. Several of us have tried to find where he is buried. This seems like the most likely. (By the way, it is his baby buried down behind the school in Poca.)
Blessings to you,

Just wanted to tell you that I talked to the only living descendant who would have an idea if the Lilly Cemetery is the correct one for the grave of Carl Ferdinand Ulbrich, and she said it must be the one. She took a look at the cemetery on findagrave and said that since there are Milbee, Zitzelberger, Burman, and Santrock names there, that this must be the one that her mother-in-law (an Ulbrich) referred to as the "Old Milbee" Cemetery. Thank you for looking when you get a chance.
Do you know how we could find out when it was established or named Lilly Cemetery?

You are very welcome. I was happy to do it for you!
In the very back of that cemetery in the left corner, there is a stone laying flat on the ground, face up. I was thinking that if someone would pound two iron rods into the ground, one in the front and one in the back, that it would keep the stone upright for a very long time, as the stone would not be able to fall backwards or forward. Face up or face down on the ground causes the rain & snow to deteriorate it so much faster. It's the coolest white stone -- Charles C., son of CF & P Ulbrich,age 1 yr. 11 mo. 22 days,"God blesses in an early death and take the infant to himself."
It really is in the back corner, right before you'd go over the hill to the brown water below. I don't think two rods would cost very much, and I would send you $ for them.
Let me know. Thank you!

Do you live near Poca? If so, would you be willing to do a little cemetery chore for me if I sent you the money? It is in the Poca-Varner Cemetery behind the Poca school on Rt 62.

Always happy to make changes and additions. I helps when they are made by first clicking on the Edit tab in the upper right-hand corner of the memorial page. That way a memorial number is provided which makes for a faster lookup and change. Thanks again for the additions.

Pauline's maiden name was Schmude, but I doubt that would be on the marker. Since she died so long before him and he remarried (second wife buried somewhere else), it's possible he is alone.
I know from the 1920 census that he was in Putnam Co., as well as from his youngest daughter.
