RE: Hallgrings
Thanks for taking the trouble to find them, I really appreciate it.

RE: Boans in Arlington
No need to apologize about the time it takes. Take all the time you need. I really appreciate your willingness to look in that cemetery at all, as it is so far away for me I am unlikely to ever get there in person, so please don't feel under any pressure. I hope you enjoy going to the cemetery, looking for folks related to you.

I thought of mentioning the fact that Louis Hallgring Jr. was a WWII veteran because in some cemeteries local groups (VFW, American Legion or other vet groups, sometimes even Scouts) have some sort of record of where the vets are buried so their graves can be decorated on Veterans' and Memorial Days. You might ask the cemetery if there's any local group or individual with a "locator" for vets buried there. (And if Louis Hallgring Jr. is not on the local vet grave list he should be: I have some letters that he wrote to his parents and some photos from Germany 1944-45).

Boans in Arlington
Thanks for the photo of memorials of William Henry Boan and his wife Louisa Crook Boan.
Since theses Boans are apparently related to you, if you would like me to transfer them sometime I will.

I am wondering if maybe the elder Hallgrings (Louis Sr. and Minnie) never were provided with a gravestones, even though they are certainly buried in Arlington Cemetery. More surprising would be if their son, who was a veteran, never had any marker as the VA will provide a gravestone without charge.

William Henry Boan
The other reason I think William Henry Boan is probably a son of Henry Boan (1852-1932) is that the cemetery said that his and his wife's lot is owned by a "Nellie Hutchinson," and notes from Louis Hallgring imply that "Elsie Boan Hutchinson" was a sibling of Minnie.

Minnie Boan Hallgring
Minnie Boan is buried with her husband and son, Louis Hallgring Sr. & Jr., in Prospect Hill Circle, Lot B, Graves 30-33 so in a different section of the cemetery from her parents and siblings, who are in Rosedale Lawn. If you go back to Arlington sometime, I hope you might be able to look for their memorials in Prospect Hill Circle. I knew Louis Hallgring Jr. so I would like to maintain his and his parents' memorials. However, if you would like the memorial of Minnie's sister Fannie, since you are related, I can transfer her.

I was told a "William C Boan" is also in the Rosedale Lawn, lot 409 along with Henry, Catherine, Fannie, Katherine, etc. My notes seem to have him dying 1910, but I may have miscopied this. Also the cemetery claimed there is a still-born child named William d. 1913 who is also in that lot, but probably he was given no stone. Could the cemetery have erroneously recorded 2 Williams when there was only one still-birth? The notes I had about that family from Louis Hallgring Jr. had "Willie" listed as a sibling of Minnie, which sounds like a child who never made it to adulthood.

Also I found out that there is a "William Henry Boan" d. 1930 and his wife "Louisa" buried in the Evergreen Circle, Plot 204, graves 1 & 2. This may be a son of Henry, since the 1880 US Census has 28 year old Henry & Kittie Boan (Kearney NJ) with a 4 year old son Henry enumerated.

Boans, Arlington Cem NJ
Thanks a lot for photographing the Boans' headstone. It clarified a few things. According to the cemetery, there is a William C Boan also buried in lot 409, Rosedale Lawn. Did you see no headstone there?

Are you related to Henry Boan (b. 1852)? There is some information about him in the 1870 US Census for Kearney, NJ that you might post on his memorial. I will post it on the Edit page for the F-G memorial that you created if you like.

Do you know if John Henry Boan (b. 1870) is related to Henry Boan b. 1851, or is it a different Boan family?
