|sandi lewis - malburg||Pringle graves|
In researching my family I came across your photos of Myles Pringle 104923413 and his family. Might it be the Sedore (a family cemetery) in Richmond Twp that you located these graves? Please see Deborah Dafoe - Pringle's memorial 101979568. I will send you the map that Steve Johnston sent me showing the location. This Deborah is my great Grand Aunt. Might you have taken other grave photos of this family?
I did a quick search on her name and found several mentions--maybe you're aware of these already. I thought the Rippen name was somewhat familiar and maybe I had seen it before. Right off I saw a mention in a forum referring to a book entitled Descendants of C.B. Frerichs"...here's the parts pertining to your lady in particular:
IA3c(3). Frauke Catherine Rippen b.25Jan1799, Hesel. Mrd. Claas Carls Frerichs b.14Apr1800, d. 20Jul1857, Wiesederfehn. He was a farmer and tailor.
NOTE: Frauke Catherine Rippon (Frerichs) later came to USA with son, Klaas B. Frerichs, 1862. She died 12Jan1878, Preston Twp., Plymouth Co., IA., buried Grant Twp. Lutheran Cemetery.
NOTE: Claas Carls Frerichs was the son of Laborer Folkert Frerichs(b.1754) and Gesche Margaretha Carls(b.23Apr1759, Horstens, Ger.
I believe I added some Harms and some others that were somehow in this family tree and buried in Iowa, mostly Lutheran. Lots of information out there on this family.

Hi, Her name doesn't automatically ring a bell. I started adding this family to that cemetery because I found a few obits in some Iowa newspapers stating they were buried there and then added a few more because of Family Search records--census, death records, etc. It ended up that there were quite a few Frerichs there and extended family, as well. A few were buried in nearby towns. There may have only been two to five people in that cemetery until I added what I found. If it's documented that she's buried there, you can add her name yourself--sure seems like that's the appropriate place for her.
Iowa has been really good at putting their historic newspapers on-line. Also check out Iowa's WPA Graves. Maybe she's mentioned in one of the obits of a family member, possibly in one that I've added. Good luck.
