RE: Henry Fiene

You are very welcome. I set-up a memorial for his wife as well and tried to upload the same picture to her memorial but Find-A-Grave kept locking up on me this morning. I will try again later.

Minnie Bock 161995093
Per your photo request of Minnie Bock in Gilead Cemetery- I photographed the entire cemetery so if there is no photograph of her stone it is not there. I could not find an obituary to place her there. Her 2nd husband preceded her in death and is at Maple Grove and her mother is in Jordan, so is she really in Gilead?

RE: Pearl Lenz
I just reread your note.

I would definitely use Lake County, IN as Pearl's birthplace as not Jasper County, IN. Several of her siblings were also born in Lake County, IN during that time period and the family is living in Eagle Creek, Lake Co., IN in the 1910 Census.

RE: Pearl Lenz
Thank you Ron.
I would show the information for both locations in your notes section. That way the information is out there for all to see.

The Indiana, Birth Certificates, 1907-1940 definitely shows Eagle Creek, Lake, Indiana, USA.

I would also show the death certificate info.
(Indiana, Death Certificates, 1899-2011) listing DeMotte.

Looking at Google Maps the two locations are very close to one another. Many times people will list the closest big town or city instead of the little township or that is what they remember from family stories. My leaning is to always go for the birth record over the death record as the death records are not always the most accurate. They are only as good as the informant knows.

Just my thoughts anyway.

RE: Hamilton Family
The death certificate (Which I know they arent 100% accurate) lists Frances C Hamilton. The informant is L.A. Clapp. Frances had a brother named Leverett A Clapp. Plus, her mother's name was Charlotte. The informant for the death certificate likely being her brother, combined with the common practice at the time of giving girls their mother's first name as their middle, indicates that C is most likely her middle initial, and that it likely stands for Charlotte. Hope this helps.

I will stop today and see if I can find where Frances is buried and get a photo of her grave.

RE: Hamilton Family
There is a photo of David, at the White Pigeon Library. I'm going to ask them if they could send me a digital scan of it. If they do, I will add the picture to his memorial

RE: Margaret Ann Reek Smiley
You're welcome. Do you know for a fact that Minnie Bock is buried in the same cemetery? She is not listed on the cemetery reading I use, but I have found other "unlisted" folks before! I will go back soon and maybe she'll be there.

E.F. Paramore
Edward F. Paramore is buried next to his wife in Evergreen Cemetery in Oconto, WI. He was born Dec 10, 1830 and died Aug 1, 1909. When I was taking Frances' picture which will be posted shortly, I noticed her husband and took a picture of his stone also. I only want to control my family so, if you create the memorial for Edward and let me know, I will post the picture. A picture request is NOT necessary. If you are looking for any other relatives in Oconto, Shawano or Marinette Counties in WI, here is a website that my help you:

RE: Sarah Stroh
There was no mention of any children in either of the obits. I also believe that on the 1900 census, it notes no children born.

Added by MFC on Apr 05, 2016 11:21 PM

RE: Sarah Stroh
I do not believe that Sarah had any children. Did she? Her parents are buried at Evergreen in Auburn. I believe that I already submitted an edit to you to add that family link.

The original memorial was deleted and a new one had been made. The correction was done.

RE: Jean Marie Miller Colonius
Jean/Harold were actually my neighbors when they gave up farming and moved into Taylorville. I walked the cemetery three times and I don't think Gail has a headstone...which, of course, made me sad. But, I wondered, too, if she had gotten married and perhaps was under another name.

RE: Jean Marie Miller Colonius
When they gave up farming and moved into Taylorville, IL, THEY WERE MY NEIGHBORS!! Could not find Gail anywhere in the cemetery so not sure about her having a headstone but she wasn't anywhere near Harold/Jean....I've walked the cemetery THREE times and couldn't find her.

It was my pleasure to find them for you.
