RE: Harlin Pavey (#154345685)
Thank you so much for catching the date of Harrington Pavey. The one I had him connected to made his father not living when he was born. I have deleted this one I entered and have found the correct one and his mother. Check it out. # 27286922 Harrington #27286946 Clara Pavey. Is this some of your family?

This makes me curious. I really don't think it's possible, but I'm gonna do my research and try to figure it out. Thanks

Gerhard Folkerts
Find A Grave # 172311461

Gerhard folkerts is my 2nd great grandfather.
This is what I have in my genealogy file, if it can be of help to you in your research.

SOURCE: Marie Gerdes......Gerhard Folkerts came to America. The family mistakenly went to Springfield, MO but wanted to be in Springfield, IL and returned and settled in Springfield, IL. Later the family returned home to Germany. Year was maybe aprox 1860's when the Folkerts family came to Springfield, IL and Gerhard worked as a blacksmith. Children went to school in Springfield. Then Civil war came and he was upset and moved the family back to Leerhafe. Gerhard worked as a blacksmith on return to Leerhafe

Note: Last child born in 1878 supposedly in maybe they never came over until after his birth.

SOURCE: The Hayen Family History by Wilma Hayen Stephenson..."I was told that Gerhard Folkerts got a passport in 1861 and he was 22 year old when he got it. I do not know what year Gerhard and Almuth came to the United States with their family. They settled in Emerson, Illinois which is near Sterling as Carl remembered going to school there and being around seven years old. Gerhard started a blacksmith shop there. After some years there Gerhard and Almuth decided to go back to Germany with their family. Years later as the family grew older, they came back one by one through sponsors with the exception of Johann Heinrich who stayed until his father had passed away. Then he and his family with the exception of his daughter Hannah settled in Canada. They came over on the ship name Karlaruhe from Bremen and landed at Halifax, Nova Scotia.

If you have contacts over in Germany and can find where they are buried, I'd appreciate any further information.
Regards, Sharon Brodersen Lindbloom

I have taken photos of his Grave
I have photos of his grave which the marker has been destroyed and lost years ago. I did take a good photo of his brother John Love and his second wife Harriet Williams Love. If you are interested I will send you photos. It is in the middle of nowhere but I still try to keep their graves clean and from falling over once a year or so. Col. Jamie Love is my 4th Great Grandfather. My grandmother was Katie Lee Love Pannell. Also, I made copies of information in the Book First Family of History County that is a bit more detailed. Col Jamie's father was a Rev War Soldier who died in Kentucky in 1831. I have a lot of information on the Love family. - Johnny R. Pannell.

But that still makes you guys family... distant, but family none the less. Where do you fit in? Sometimes it's really hard to keep up with the current stuff, so it's always nice to expand the family data. You can email me if you like... my address is on my contributor page.

Orin Caughey
Hello! I am about to fulfill your photo request but unfortunately, it is a photo of the area, only. His grave is unmarked. There are a lot of unmarked graves at Woodlawn. We are able to find locations due to the navigational number plugs, and it is always a disappointment whenever we discover there is no marker.

I am sorry this was not a more positive outcome.

Best regards,

RE: Charles A Meyer - 2
I will get all documentation into order and send to you with pictures that I took in Trier, since our common ancestors is Charles Anton Meyer. I focused my research in Germany on Charles' father, Ludwig Meyer and came home with documents concerning Ludwig and his wife (last name Bernasco). We've documentation that Ludwig was adopted by the Meyer family, that he IS the son of Princess Augusta. Ludwig was educated as a doctor in the US, returned to trier to claim being a part of the royal lineage, being denied due to illegitimacy. However, he stayed in Trier as a physician in the Prussian army and treated citizens during the cholera outbreak. Ludwig married Catharina Bernasco, daughter of baron, which is also documented. Ludwig was given the title von for his good deeds, so in the end did obtain a royal title. I am sure you knew some of this info, it was a bit of family "legend" from my great grandmother Agnes Meyer, BUT my goal was achieved in verifying all of this information when I was in Trier. Again, I will send you info. My personal email address is ....I will try attaching documents to a message or to your tree.

Thanks for the response and talk soon.

Charles A Meyer
I saw that you were listed as a family member to Charles A Meyer. Hattie Huffman was I believe his third wife and buried with him in Maple Cemetery in Boonville IN. I was recently in Trier Germany doing research on his grandfather, Karl Ludwig Meyer and his wife Catharina Bernasco. If you're a descendent of Meyer, just let me know and would be happy to share some info I discovered when in Trier, I am still amazed to the wealth of information that was found in the Trier library. I also found the memorial that was established for Ludwig's good deeds as a physician during the cholera outbreak. I would love to know if you've any information as well.

Heather Wilhelmus

I am related to the Meyer family by Charles A Meyer's daughter, Agnes Meyer, having married into the Derr family. My mother's maiden name is derr, so Agnes is my great grandmother. The ancestral research has taken me on some great adventures.

Sorry I just realized I typed the memorial number incorrectly, it should be 117949850.

Sylvester Rice

I am contacting you regarding 3 memorials, 2 you manage (104269524 and 104270985) and 1 you don't (119949850).
I was looking to fulfill your photo request for the one ending 524 at the cemetery you have listed but found another Sylvester Rice the passed in 1937 (photographed previously and listed under the one ending 850). I saw that you have no death date for the one ending 985 and was wondering if it is possible the 985 and 850 are one and the same? I did not find a marker for the 524 but I believe he may be at the other county cemetery know as Turner that is in Waterloo and not Hillcrest that is in Evansdale. Turner was locked today when I went there to see if I could find it there, I have called for it to be opened and usually they will do it the next day so I plan on going there tomorrow evening after work. I know this is alot of info and hopefully those 2 memorials are the same person as it will give you a death date for your relative.

RE: Clara Randell #104469022
Sorry, I am a little confused. It appears that both you and collette harrison have separate memorials for the same lady, wife of Samuel F. Miller buried Maplewood Cem., Vinton, Benson Co., IA. Yours but not hers links to Samuel. Both have hear name and information slightly wrong, because she was married twice and because the photo on collette's memorial shows her surname spelled wrong on her grave marker by the info. I have. I will e-mail the full family group sheet to you so you can decide for yourself.

Find A Grave #58272263 by collette harrison has Clara Randell
Find A Grave #104469022 by Cody Skoff has Clara Denson Miller

Her maiden name was Clara Dunston. She married first Samuel F. Miller and had 10 children with him. After his death she married David Ransdell and lived with him in Vinton, Benson Co., Iowa.

Therefore her name should be Clara(Dunston)Miller Ransdell and her grave marker should say Clara Ransdell.

I so appreciate people putting memorials and linking to family members--sure makes a researcher's work easier!

RE: Clara Randell #104469022
Her maiden name was Dunston, first husband Miller, second husband Ransdell was second husband, so her name should be Clara (Dunston) Miller Ransdell.
