Always happy to share data, but most of my material on this family is based on your memorials. Augusta Hasselbring (1877-1940) was married to John Frank Schutz (1877-1958), for whom I have much data from other sources. Haven't found burials for them, however. Other linked surnames in Illinois Find A Grave memorials are Kahle and Rascher.

There is no "Novska" Poland in the Find A Grave database, but I Googled it, and it shows up as being in Croatia.

August Joseph Braker

That was very kind of you to leave flower on August Joseph Braker. May I ask, do you know of August Joseph Braker? He was my 2nd great grandfather and I'm always looking for information or persons that might information about him.

RE: J. Casper
Hello, there!
Thank you for getting back to me about the name change. I'm new at this, so forgive me for not being too aware about how changes go. Even though my bio says 2 years, I only signed up at that time, I didn't do much on the site until a few months ago.
Here's my thinking on using Johann as the first name and John as the nickname, especially with these long ago relatives. Accuracy and completeness have helped me find many folks from the family histories.
An example of not using the exact wording from a headstone is John Casper's father's headstone (Garrelt Jacob Casper) It says Caspers which was correct at the time, but the "s" was dropped in all descendants from that point on, so his Find A Grave site uses Casper. Also, his name is misspelled on the headstone as Garrett, but his Find A Grave site is amended to Garrelt, the correct spelling of his name from family histories and as you know from John Garrelt Casper.
J. Casper's brother went by Frank and the headstone says Frank, but, to me at least, it's interesting to have his given name Friech on his site, with his Frank name in quotes, "Frank" as the name he went by.
It doesn't matter to me that much, I just love the fact that we're honoring these long ago folks and are remembering them all these years later in our new, technological world, thanks to FindAGrave!

RE: Quirin photo
You are so welcome! I did get one photo of the full stone, and you can see his name in it. I can post it to his page, but I'd be glad to go back and take a close up of his stone if you'd like.

Hello Katy. Happy to meet you on Find A Grave. Other than a small number of family, I place memorials in honor of veterans. I am happy to place these memorials with their families with faith that you will not delete as some do. Transfer today. God Bless.

Grace M. Quirin
Hi Katy,
I have a photo of Grace M. Quirin's headstone from St. John the Baptist Catholic Cemetery in Smithton, however the dates don't match the Grace Quirin that you are requesting. The headstone reads :
Raymond J. 1909-1942 "Father"
Grace M. 1907-1982 "Mother"

Let me know if this is the marker for which you are looking and I will post it.

RE: Kesner family

that is the one. I believe that John is Ephraims brother, George and Ananais are his sons from his first wife. You can find them in Mississipi county Missouri in the 1870 census and In the 1880 census however the name spelling is Kessner. then somewhere between 1880 and 1900 John Died. we then find a Sara Kestner With 3 children at home in the same county and township. Belle Kesner Meisner's death certificate says its Geo Kestner and Sara Baily as parents but is was filled out by her husband who died 3 years later from senility so he may have been confused. Belle Kesner (Meisner) is buried in the same cemetery as my grandpa and great uncles. who I think were her brothers. Im just trying to prove that they are brothers and sisters but running into a brick wall finding John and Sarah C (Catherine) Katy Kesner/Kestner Ha Ha isn't geneology fun!

Yes that is the John I am suspecting is correct.

RE: Kesner family
This is not 100% accurate and based on some speculation but the similarities are to remarkable to ignore. Particularly with the name Kaziah

John C Kesner is Ephraim Kesner's brother.
He should be Kaziah Isabel "Belle" Meisner father. John C Kesner married Sarah C Bailey in 1860. His second wife. They moved to Missouri in around 1880. In census records name spelling Kessner. (neither John nor Sarah could read nor write.) 1890 burnt so no records. 1900 census Shows a Sarah Kestner with 3 children at home Anis (Ennis Andrew) Joseph, and Isaac. Sarah had 13 children of whom only 5 were still alive. The 3 at home, and Kaziah (Belle), and another unknown. Kaziah (Belle) is buried in the same cemetery as the Ennis Isaac and William. Joseph is lost possibly died young. I am searching to find John and Sarah whom I think are Ephraims brother and sister in law. I need proof then I can link the 2 groups. Because It would Be John, then Ennis, then Eurie, Then Bobby, then myself. LOL sorry such a long message. I am in champaign Illinois by the way
