RE: walk at Brazeau
It sounds like you have a nice day for your walk tomorrow.
If you find ANY pictures or Milsters that anyone has brought along, I'd be most appreciative of you snapping some photos of them!

RE: Ann Amelia

Yes. It appears you've closed the gap for another memorial.
I've renamed Ann Amelia to Ann Amelia Shepherd.
I've linked her to her parents.
(boy were they hard to find!) F-A-G doesn't give you the name when you search and they don't have a cemetery... I found them through the back way.

Thanks again,

RE: Mina Blair
Hi Karen,

I've found (and Darlene Yancey can confirm) that the death certificates sometimes contain inaccuracies.
The Brazeau burial record that I'm entering listed her dod as April 5, which coincides with the gravestone date in the picture, too.
So I'd lean toward the two which match.

It's not critical either way...

Thanks for doing the updating for the ones I've added info.

I'm about halfway through Brazeau (in the L's) and still have a lot to go. I've added maybe 50 names so far and linked a number of folks together.

If you'd like,(when I'm through with it of course), I can email you the spreadsheet that I'm updating to reflect information I've gleaned from findagrave, the ones I've added to F-A-G, as well as my other research blended in, that'll be the most complete list of burial records on Brazeau.

I hope you saw all of the others in the lot at well. I connected the children I could figure out but the two ladies next to the son. Wives? Was not sure

Adolph and Nancy
Hi Karen,

I found an article that may be of interest to you. I excerpted this info below and made a suggestion to Brenda Joyce that she add to Adolph's BIO. If you want a copy of the complete article, it's on this link:

Here's the excerpt:
From the Southeast Missourian July 2, 2000 an article about (Arnsberg) St. John's Evengelical Lutheran Church. Notes in parenthesis are not in the article. Also paragraphs are arranged in chronological order.

Mr. Tacke was born in Germany, April 21, 1833. He served three years in the Prussian Army and in 1857 immigrated to the United States, landing in Philadelphia. in 1859, Mr. Tacke settled in Bollinger County where he built a flour mill. That same year he moved to Cape Girardeau County.
In 1861 he enlisted in the Federal Army of the Civil War. He remained a private in the army for six months with the Fourth Missouri Infantry.
On Feb 3, 1864, George and Lizette Engelmann sold 110 acres of land to Adolph Tacke. This land bordered the (Arnsberg) church land and sold for $ 490.
He re-enlisted as a first lieutenant and was discharged as a captain in February, 1865.
On April 27, 1866, a second deed was made with the Lutheran Church of what was later called Arnsberg. This deed was between Adolph and Lizette Tacke and the Trustees of the church who were: Christian Tuschhoff, John Kiepe, and Jacob Klempe.
He (Adolph) returned to Arnsberg where he built a saw mill in 1882, a flour mill and a mercantile store. A post office was located within the store. By 1884, there also was a blacksmith shop, a saloon, and an octagon shaped dance hall.
Mr. Tacke first married Lizette Zoellnor, daughter of Ferdinand and Nettie Dolle Zoellner. After her death he married Nancy Caroline Milster. He was the father of four children: William Tacke, Mrs. Mathilda Holmes, Mrs. C.T. (Clara) Maintz and Franklin J. Tacke, who married Carrie Lang.
(Adolph and Nettie had William and Mathilda and Adolph and Nancy had, in addition to Clara and Franklin, two other children Zora born and died in 1877 and a baby girl born 1872 and who died as infant)
Adolph Tacke, founder and owner of the town of Arnsberg, died June 1, 1909. He is buried in the cemetery at Arnsberg.

Farrar and related families
RE: Myrtle Ann Farrar
Can you tell me which Farrar you are descended from a few generations back? For ex, my line is Leonard, Sr., to Richard, to Reuben H. etc.

Would you be willing to write a few generations update to pass on to a Farrar geneologist who is doing nation wide data base that includes a MO data base he has already added. Many of the MO Farrars are already participating. William"Boots" Farrar who keeps the data base is descended from same line as a lot of us are in MO.
I imagine your lines cross with Abernathy, Drace, Caldwell, Farrar, Giersa, back in the family tree.

Here's a question for you, by some small chance, have you ever heard of a person named Francis Charleds Farrar, born in 1870's (77, maybe 78). Could be adopted. His grandson, who is older in years, is looking for his Farrar line. Supposedly born in St. Joseph, MO. I am helping him out, just in asking Missouri Farrars to please check their fam. trees to see if they have a baby born on their family tree named Francis Charles Farrar.
My relatives and you probably have some lineage in common. I hope to hear from you soon.
Cordially, Becky

Hi Karen,
My error. Charles E. Smith and John W. Smith are not related as far as I know. Sorry for the confusion.

Using I found Clara on the 1880 census with her family and she is 8 years old. Also, a birth date of 26 Aug 1873 Apple Creek, Cape Girardeau MO; death date of 2 Aug 1913 Linn, Kansas. Couldn't find a place of burial.
