Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for five years so far. I have been able to fill in a lot of the gaps that were missing from the information that I started with.

I check and double check my information. I know that I can't always be perfect, but will always try to get the information as close as I can.

I gather information from microfilm, documents at the Hancock Historical Society, tombstones, and Courthouses.

I have been focusing on the Koechle/Kachle Family of Nauvoo which is my grandmother's maternal side.

I will eventually put the information into a book for the family members to have.

Our ancestors deserve to be remembered more than just a name on a page.

I am also a guide for the Nauvoo Historical Society on Saturdays. I am currently trying to create an updated cemetery list of the Nauvoo City Cemetery #2 Records.

If you would be willing to become a member of the Nauvoo Historical Society contact me and I will let you know how you can become a member.

Thank you for adding the Schencks from Navoo. Do you know who Christian Schenck's parents are? Do you have any information on John Schenck?

George Edward Reinhardt, Jr.
George Edward Reinhardt Jr. was born 18 April 1898 in Sonora Township, Illinois. Source: WWI Draft Registration Card. He died on 20 Oct 1975, Muscatine, Iowa. Source: Nancy Diemer Shevakos, formerly of Nauvoo, Illinois. Hope this helps. I also have a photo of his gravestone that makes the dates very clear.

Note: George's WWI Draft Registration Card says his middle name is Edwin. It also says, "This Boy is nearly blind can't see to file his name."

His obituary says his middle name was Edward.

Margaret Diemer Hauptmann #114071569
Please check George Hauptmann's head stone. You will see that his wife Margaret is also on head stone. It states that her birth date is Nov 1, 1844 and died Apr 18, 1940.

Thank you,

She could be Sarah Lucrecia Datin
B 1866, Illinois
She was listed on the 1870 Census in Sonora Twp, with father Joseph N., Mother Catherine, brother William, sister Martha E. Brother Joseph, Sister Rebecca, sister Ida, brother John.

I do not have a death date for her but was able to confirm her death was before 1897, place unknown.

This is the closest Datin I can find in my genealogy. I will contact other family members to see if they have any further information.

I will look at your listings at the Datin family in the cemetery. I know there are some Datins buried at some cemetery in Nauvoo who's graves were unmarked.

Thank you for going to the cemetery and adding family members to find a grave.
