Hi Penny, Linda [Cunningham] Day-Emerson here. What a surprise meeting you here;) I have been researching Alice Matsler Brann and her family, a bit and discovered an error on Edna Lenore Brann's memorial. Her birth year is actually 1889 instead of 1899. She shows up in the 1895 Iowa State Census and the 1900 US Census (age appropriate).
Thanks for giving your time to FindAGrave.

RE: Katherine Schrock # 160863636
Thanks, Penny, I think I understand now. I didn't mean to cause a stir either, just wanted to understand. I usually set them up with a hyphen but I have a "lady" that gets after me when I do that. She says only the last name should be listed and the others should be in the bio. She obviously doesn't have to live with the situation.
What I try to do is put the name people will look for. Are you family? Carol

Katherine Schrock # 160863636
I did find where Katherine was posted under the McCarthy name, but there was no mention of the Schrock name. Can you tell me why a woman who changed her name in 1967 should be know after her death 49 years later by her previous name?
In doing my regular checks before posting a memorial I search for the name the person, confirming there is no memorial with that name already set-up, I proceed to do so. It was in trying to connect those that proceed her that I found the McCarty Memorial. If it had the Schrock name in the Bio. or after the McCarty I would have deleted. But I just stopped and hopped someone would get in touch with me. On an edit you have given me her parents but put Unknown for both husbands. And telling me I have a dup. Can you help me to understand? Carol

Again, I am amazed at the generosity of the volunteers.

Blessings, Kathy

RE: Isaac Wisenburg
I know of one sister Mille Wisenburg Shelden.

This is from my notes I made from photocopies of a Dewey County History almost 20 years ago...which I no longer have the complete copies and can not find. I summarized my notes to leave on the family search site and am posting it here, should anyone have a copy or more information on these families would love to hear from them. And thank you again Penny, for creating this memorial.

My notes taken from "George M. Burr Family" entry on Dewey County History include that George was in the 1892 Land Run and succeeded in filing a claim in Haddon Twp. Dewey County. George and his wife, her parents (Isaac and Margaret Wisenburg) and their daughter, Mille (Mrs. Fred Shelden) went to Kiowa, Ks, to wait for the the start of the race. George made the race while the others waited for him to return, then followed him to his claim. Wisenburgs filed 1/2 mile N of the Burr claim. George's first attemt to at a claim was several miles north of where he eventually filed. He had staked two corners, and there at the third sat a man with a rifle who stated this was his claim. George decided this wasn't the time or place to argue and went to his final claim.

George Burr was a very good fiddler who played for local parties and dances. It wasn't unusual for outlaws to attend the festivities. They were easily noticed as non of the local people knew them and they always posted a couple guys to outside to guard the horses while the other's danced. George's wife Laura danced with them and said they were always perfect gentlemen. She later learned that one was Redbuck, one of the area's better known outlaws.

The Burr farm had very good well water and a stranger stopped asking to water his horse. Burr's nephew Earl Dewald, said sure go ahead but he had to hurry off for doctor as his uncle George Burr had pneumonia. The stranger asked if this George Burr was the fiddle player and was told it was. The stranger said it will take 2 days to get to Mooreland and back and that may be too long. Instead he sent Earl Dewald south to the third canyon which he said was very narrow, with the instructions to head into it and at the narrowest part a man will stop you. When he does, tell him that "Joe" sent you for "Doc", that "Burr who plays fiddle at the dances, needs him". Dewald followed these instructions and returned with "Doc" who stayed a couple of days with the Burr's until George had made satisfactory recovery.

Boys, Everett and Willy, helped building their home, breaking the sod. One of the prettiest sites was a cactus blooming on Grandmother Wisenburgs roof. Six more children were born. Hilda M died at birth, Muriel M 1897, married Jess Ladd, making thier home 1 mile N of Cestos. Harve Burr, 1900, married Bessie Dawkins, Ruth A 1903, married Edward Bydalek, making their home in Colorado Springs; Charles C 1907 married Lilly M Mowery making their home in Boulder. Elsie 1913 married Paul M Bodine, their home was north of Cestos. Everett, 1891, born in Kansas, married Ethel Dick, making their home in Pennsylvania. William C, 1892, also born in Kansas, married Alva Hallmark, making their home in Loveland, CO. The Wisenburg house was later lived in by Harve Burr's son Paul, who took it down in 1966 and built a new home.

Isaac Wisenburg
Hi Penny. I was hoping for information on your Isaac Wisenburg. I know from my Dewey County History that an Isaac and Margaret Wisenburg were the parents of Laura Wisenburg who married George Morrison Burr. Here is Laura's link on this site,
Can you confirm (rule out) these Isaac's as the same person. You may contact me here or through my email on my contact page. Thank you.

Add grave in Mooreville

I have never added a grave site in and am not sure how to do it. Would you add one for me.

Jacob's second wife (Mary Elizabeth Wilson Brink) is buried in the Mooreville Cemetery in Orlander Wilson Brink's plot. No headstone for any of them. There used to be a concrete curb around the plot but it is long gone now.

I know this info to be accurate. I was taken to this site by 2 of Orlander's daughters. (Inez and Mary)
