Hi Ann,
Got your edits for Stockton. Couldn't help but notice you are also Stockton, and though you might like to manage them. I will approve the edits, and then transfer them to you.

RE: Anna Albert
She must have been quite a woman! He's buried beside her. :) She is impossibly beautiful, isn't she?

There is another Henry Albert at the same cemetery, but with different dates. As this Anna and this Henry are buried side by side, it would be difficult to dispute the relationship.

Also buried with the couple is their named daughter, Beatrice Walter, nee Albert. BAM. I don't see the brothers, though.

The sad part of this? I originally took this photo last summer. When I'm processing photos (which I do daily when I'm walking cemeteries), I link if it's simple, leave if it's not. I then come back as time allows or as the spirit moves me.

I went to this cemetery yesterday because I knew there were several new burials. (We walked the entire cemetery last summer.) I perused the requests, but it's a pretty big cemetery and the weather was such yesterday that I just drove until I found what I needed and jumped in and out of the car as quickly as possible. I took only fourteen new photos.

When I got home and started to process the edits, I ran across your request again, and noticed that I had uploaded photos last summer to the duplicate (that was taken from burial records, so no harm was intended). I removed the photos from that memorial and put them on yours, because your memorial was posted first.

And now I get this intriguing note from you, so I'm so glad that I noticed the duplication!

If you would like these memorials transferred to you, I'd ask for them. I have worked with the contributor who posted these, and he's really quite easy to get along with. I can't speak for him, but it doesn't appear that he has a personal connection to your kinfolk.

I have struck out on obituaries for Anna and Beatrice. And the archives for the year that Henry died, 1954, are not available online. That year is just missing in its entirety. I don't know if they were lost, destroyed, or skipped, but they are not online.

This was the confirmation I needed to identify Beatrice as an Albert (I submitted the name and mother edit.) It also makes more probable that the sons were George and Floyd. It appears that Lockhart was George's middle name? Or that the court was confused? About equally probable, I guess. :)

Paullina Times, Paullina, Iowa, December 17, 1964
The will of Beatrice Walter was appointed to probate in district court. Floyd Albert and George Albert was [sic] appointed executors.

====

Paullina Times, January 9, 1965, p1

The court approved the final reports of the executors in the estate of Herman Tiemens and the estate of Beatrice Walter. Executors discharged and estates closed.

Serial marriages were very common here. When a spouse died young, it was common to jump right back into matrimony. Youthful death was common; divorce very infrequent. Tough times!

One man who strongly believed in marriage (sounds good, right??) was my great grandfather. I am the spawn of his third and "best breeding" wife. His first two wives, both gave birth and died within a year of their marriage. For his third wife, he chose the sister of his second. Jeltje gave him 10 more children, so I am happy that the third time was the charm. My grandmother was their ninth. :)

Thanks so much for the note. As you can see, it made my day. I found it as I was reading details of the first actual "Lost at Sea" I've found, and that is unalterably sad.

I hope you find Ann and Henry's boys! They're probably not too far away. The usual migration was to Minnesota, and then, often back again.

Sorry about the photo mixup, but surely am glad I keep checking these things because today, it paid off in exactly the way it should. Thank you.

Al Tetzner
Hello Ann,

There is also a Find A Grave page for Al at Garden of Memories Cemetery, Waterloo, created about six months after I created the one at Elmwood Cemetery.

They also created a memorial page for a woman named Frances, whom he married a couple of years after Lola passed away. There is a note that Al was interred next to Frances. She has a photo of her marker on her page, but there is not a photo of a marker on Al's other page.

I need to get a photo of my cousin's grave at Garden of Memories, so I'll ask about Al's grave at the same time. Hopefully his grave is marked.

Westview photo requests
Hello

I would like to help you find your photo request at Westview Cemetery in Atlanta.

Westview is massive the largest cemetery in the whole Southeast. Would you please help me by calling the cemetery office at 404-755-6611 to find out whether the grave is marked with a monument or marker or both AND what the section and lot numbers are.

Then I will gladly look.

The office is reluctant to give out that information to non-relatives.

Thanks

Phil

RE: Mary Millard
You're more than welcomed. I just wish her stone was in better shape but I am fairly certain it is her by the few small things I was able to make out.

RE: Mae Purvis photo request
Ann, if it was a relative of mine I would get in touch with the city of tallahassee. It is a city owned cemetery and very we'll maintained. They are probably unaware of the overgrowth. You can find contact information on the City of Tallahassee website http://www.talgov.com/pm/pm-cemeoview.aspx

RE: Charles Anthony
You are very welcome, I'm always glad to help! Sometimes I work fast and other times my old 66 year old brain slows down considerably and I get behind in my work! Take care, let me know any time you need transfers.
