RE: Spitsbergen-Moddersville
I have posted the photos. These are the names of other Spitsbergan graves in the Moddersville Cemetery.

Helen Louise
John & Ester
Merlin & Dorthy
Mary & Martin

There are three prominent families buried in this cemetery, The Spitsbergens, Wymas, and Modders. At least one Modder married a Spitsbergen and three Modders married into the Wyma family.
Hope this helps with your research.

I have taken photos of the graves requested but not posted them yet as I have a question. There are two Mary Spitsbergen's shown on the burial records. Both were born in 1897. One died in 1986 and is buried with husband Martin. The other one is shown as having only a field stone marking her grave and is buried with Evert and Jennie (also with only field stones)near their parents grave. I'm almost sure you want the one buried with Evert and Jennie but wanted to confirm.

Union Cemetery-Krueger
Thanks for the photo of Bertha. That is wife #1
William had two wives and was buried
next to or between them. My husband's
grandparents are Berta and William A.
If you happen to go back to the cemetery could
you look in the same area for both of them
Thanks Wendy and Mark

Photo request for Rayo Lazarevic
Dear Jodi - thank you so very much for taking the time to upload some photos of Rayo for me - it is very very much appreciated. I am not sure yet whether it is actually my 'missing' uncle from Yugoslavia, lost in WWII, as I can't read the cyrillic lettering on the headstone, but I will get my nephew to do so today.
It is really so very kind of you to take the trouble to do this....
thank you again,
Sue (MacDonald)

Happy Hunting, Jerry

RE: Ella & Carl Dieball
yes and I did find other DIeballs there but haven't posted all of them yet.

yes you can use the photos. When I go to a cemetery to photo a stone I usually try to get as many photos of all the stones and post them. I was getting tired though and only did about 100 of them. Someday I might get back to take some more.

RE: Kohler family

I have delved farther into the church records. It looks like Francesca Kohler died May 21st 1870 at the age of 35 1/2 years. September 18th 1872 Elizabeth Kohler is born, daughter of Laurence and Katharine (Noll) Kohler (this is how it is spelled in the church records. The spelling often differs from record to record, as spelling was not standardized for quite sometime). So apparently Katharine Noll was the 2nd wife of Laurence Kohler. Indeed Francesca is buried in St. Kilian by herself, listed as "Frau con Loranc". Laurence is buried with his 2nd wife Kathrine Noll.

RE: Kohler family
The records are in book form. I can't copy the whole book because of copyright, and it wouldn't be fair for the man who transcribed all the records. But if you give me some names and dates I can look them up for you.

RE: Kohler family

The marriage record for your great-great-grandmother shows Adam Horle son of William and Elizabeth (Dersam) Horler married Maria Kohler, daughter of Laurence and Catharine (Noll)Kohler July 23rd 1895. The witnesses were Francis Melzer and Mathilda Strachota.

Some records have parents, especially baptism, and usually marriage, and death if it's a small child.

For instance Paul Kohler was born March 21st 1864, son of Laurence and Francisca (Specht) Kohler. He was baptizedHarch 29th 1864, and his sponsors were Paul Straub and Regina Strobel.

Have a wonderful 2010 from MN Lois
Hi Jodi,

We certainly are off to great family time. I was just so blessed to have gotten everything put together as it was not really expected at this time but there is a great peace in it all is she just went to sleep and we are all so blessed when that can happen after such a happy and beautiful person.

My mom wanted to be with my dad so much that we are okay with that. She had a great faith and what are the odds that we had just put away the motor home, did the story, be home for Christmas and have our son and family here also from Indianapolis with there three kids.

I think it was a plan and we were along for the ride. It makes us realize on the picture requests how we are able to help people and we never know the reason or result, just the blessing. You were our angel helping. Bless you and yours always!

the whole Christmas story. Thank you!

Request for Hanson at Mound with Plot info
I take pictures all over MN and into WI and even northern Mich. I know how much work it can be.

Just to let you know I didn't call the sup.
I contacted the office secretary which works only until noon.

She was very kind as I had the name and exact birth and death.

She pulled the cards, gave the info and said to stop by any time.

I put the requests in tonight for Hanson.

Block 21, lot 71 and graves 1 - 4

Andrew Hanson Grave 1 dod 1938
Margaret "Maggie" Hanson Grave 2 1890
Alfred Hanson son dod 1894
Oscar M. Hanson dod 1885

Andrew and Maggie were my mothers grand parents she only remember Andrew of course at about 6 yrs old. We are making a family tree book. She never knew anything other than HER mom was born in Racine. If you can take any picture at all and if you can take a couple of the general area so she can get the feel like she visited.
Mom is 89 and enjoying all we find for her.

I know how very busy everyone is and the time of year. I am also trying for people to get pics before the snow. I was up in the UP of Mich in Crystal Falls, and it was getting read to snow Oct 22 nd and I was out getting a few in my home town.

Have a beautiful Thanksgiving.

Blessings -
