Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Jeff. I enjoy history and specifically the history of my family. Many of them lived in Washington State but they also lived in Wisconsin. I still have many family members still residing in Europe. My father's family came to the United States through Ellis Island from the Kingdom of Denmark. My grandmother's (who is alive and well at 91yo) Grandparents immigrated from the Austro-Hungarian Empire in the 1880s. I enjoy finding all of them and making sure, that before I die, I am able to connect all the dots for all that may follow me. I think we have a special mission because of the internet so that those that follow us know how all our friends, family, and relations fit together. I also speak German and am learning Danish. My Danish familyhas traced our family to the 1500s in in Denmark. I hope I can do that for my Austrian relatives.

Cemetery Scavenger :)
Just a revision for the end of my last message:
I had exaggerated a bit.
I found TWO Wurzer graves at the "Holy Trinity Catholic..." Cemetery, and uploaded photos for both. Anna's was tough, because her nameplate was really sunken into the ground.
As far as the Bosch graves go, I had already uploaded the photos awhile back, I think to fulfill 1-2 photo requests, so that was all I had.

RE: Wurzer Family
I made it back to the Fingal cemetery and got much clearer photos of the Wurzer graves for Rosalia, Melcher, both Joseph's and Franz. I especially focused on the ones with German inscriptions, just like you had asked. :)
Here is what I was able to decipher (though I don't speak any German...)
Franz Wurzer
GEB 22 Aug 1860
GEST 5 Mai 1906
"Jungfrau mutter o Maria
Keusch und unersch
Sa von meinem staub gechr_ (?)
Gewidmet von Wadenfänger Gattin und Kinder "
Joseph Wurzer
Born Nov 12 1865
Died June _ 1890
Member of Co. b. (not sure on the "b")
Found Vol. (not sure on "Vol."), Died at San Francisco on his Rowbt from the Philippine Is.
Heir ruht
Geb Aug 6 1851
Gest May 14 1922
“Las ihm ruhen en frieden. Amen.”
I didn't add these to the marker inscription part of their pages, because I noticed you managed them, and I figured there were some words here and there that I got wrong. So I left it up to you to figure them out and hopefully add to their pages..?
Also, I searched through the whole cemetery while I was out there, so I think I got all of the Wurzer graves I could see.
I also stopped at the "Holy Trinity Catholic Church Cemetery" and found 2 Bosch graves and 3 Wurzer graves. I will be uploading them soon as well.

RE: Wurzer Family
Hi Jeff,
I will be heading up to the Fingal cemetery with the graves you were asking about some time this week/weekend. Please, if you can find some time this week before the weekend sneaks up, submit those photo requests of the graves you want me to find, so I have a list of what to look for...
(On a more selfish note, I'm trying to hit 100 for my count of fulfilled photo requests and since you did ask for them, maybe you could "formally" request them.. and I can finally hit 100!..?)

I will also be sure to write down what I see and spend some time looking at the old writing on them.

RE: Wurzer Family
Hi there!
Thank you for messaging me, these are the kinds of things I LOVE helping out with! I do not have a better version of that picture, BUT I drive back by the Fingal exit on the interstate every other weekend and would be happy to go back to that cemetery some time this month (May) and work on getting more photos, and/or write down the words..

Wurzer family
Transfers are complete. So happy to match them up with family. Please let me know if you run across any other relatives and I'd be happy to transfer them.

Wurzer picture
Cemetery Scavenger #48265935 is the individual that added the picture to the memorial. I don't have the original. Perhaps leave her a message regarding the picture to see if she still has the original.

RE: Wurzer Family
I don't have any other pictures of it at this time. I was more concerned with getting the memorials started online so family could find them. I know a few other people have been getting pictures so perhaps we can get something clearer. I'm not related to any of the Wurzer family, so just send a transfer request through the edit tab on whatever memorials you would like transferred to you and I'll get it taken care of. :)

RE: Wallitners
No problemo Jeff, I know they're in good hands!

Jeff, I have transferred the Wallitners to you, although it is outside the FindAGrave parameters for transfers - if for any reason you can no longer manage these memorials please transfer them back to me to keep the cemetery intact. Thanks!
