Sorry about the quality of the picture. The sun was at the wrong angle to get a good one. I do not live close to this cemetery so I will not be able to got back at a different time of day. Geo

Hello Brandon.
Thank you for this memorial to my grandfather John. He is my great, great, great, great, great grandfather. We were hoping to ask that you transfer his memorial to me as we have a bunch of family information we were going to add to his memorial.

Thanks in advance for your consideration.

Todd Williams

Brandon, thank you so much. Been waiting on that one a while. With your permission, I'd like to post the photo to my tree. I'll credit you, of course. Was his wife, Nellie, nearby, by chance? Thanks again!

I truly cannot thank you enough for the wonderful photos. The photo of the headstone of Charles Walter and Lena Mae Andrick Clark is so special to me. It means so much to finally see where they are laid to rest. God bless you.

Thank you for taking the time to locate the correct headstone for Arlene Scheele. There are two records in Find A Grave and your photograph now proves which record is correct.

Again thank your for your time.

RE: Ulrich Rothlisberger
Out of the blue, a guy named Dennis Woerman wrote and said Ulrich and Lydia were buried in Clay Center, so I looked it up on their website, and he was right. I made memorials for them numbered 121800132 and 121800267. I will send SACs for Ruth and Orval. If I have anything wrong, please let me know.

Okay, thanks, Brandon. I guess I'll keep my eye out for them in my ramblings. I'll let you know if I run across them.

RE: Ulrich Rothlisberger
Well, that's more than I knew. It's just that I would expect him to also be buried at St. Peter's since his parents, brother, daughter, sons, grandson, and great granddaughter are all buried there. You seem to be pretty familiar with that cemetery; do you know for sure they're not buried there? Just curious.

RE: John Williams
I decided to check Public Member Trees on to see if I could find anything for William & Mary. Goodgrief!! There are over 100 entries for John Williams & Rachel Hodson. Some show five children & some have more. Some have Owen like you said. Some have a John Wilson Williams (born in Tennessee). Most of them have the same info for John & Rachel. But some have his date of birth a little different. I can't imagine how they all have so many different names, dates, etc. I never did find any info for William & Mary. A few had their names, but no dates. Others didn't have them at all. I don't know where I came up with them, unless I got them from one of those, but I don't remember when.

RE: John Williams
Yes, I have Robert as the third child. I have Isaac, Elizabeth (Rachel?), Robert, Rebecca, Dinah with dates. then I have William, John Jr & Mary without any dates. Do you have dates for them? The write-up that I have says they brought six children with them from NC. Which one was the sixth, as I only have five listed with dates. You must have more dates, if you say you have two that show six months apart.

John Williams
I left a message yesterday, asking for a transfer of John Williams, but I just saw your comment to the contributor of the tombstone photo, saying he was your great great great great grandfather. He is also a 4th great to me. Small world, huh? I keep up a Williams Family Tree book for the descendants of William Harned Williams, a grandson to John & Rachel. In the original book (memeographed about 1952)after a 1st annual reunion, they had the following write-up as an introduction for the book. Thought you might like to include it on his memorial. I don't know who the writer of it was.
* * * *
In 1815 John and Rachel Williams were living near Snow Camp, North Carolina. They were active members of the Society of Friends at Center Monthly Meeting located in that community.

In August of that year, 1815, with their six children, they pioneered in a covered wagon to what is now Orange County, Indiana. This territory became a state the following year - January, 1816.

John Williams at once homesteaded land from the government three miles south of Paoli, which is now the county seat.

His second child, Robert, was the father of William H. Williams who married Mary Ann Osborn. In 1869 they (William & Mary Ann) moved with their family to Champaign, Illinois.

* * * *
In 1905 William & Mary Ann moved to Bloomingdale, Indiana, where some of their children had already located. That's where they are buried.

Who do you descend from? Do you have any more history on John & Rachel than I have?

Would love to hear from you.

RE: Requests
That would be lovely. I'm VERY distantly related, but trying to break some bricks by working the extended family. You work truly does help out generations.

Jeremiah "Jerry" Dixon (1845-1929)-Nathan's son. Martha Elizabeth Dixon (1886-1928)-Jerry's daughter. Mary "Marie" Thorington (1911-1992)-Martha's daughter. Melvin Harley Howard (1931-1971)-Marie's son. Then my husband.

I would love to chat with you, regarding family history. Also do you have any family photo, of the older generations.

RE: Hagedorn Relatives
Arlyss's parents were Alfred and Lula (Haller) Dettmer. I never met either of them, but I guess Alfred went by Butch. And Lula must have made quite an impression, because I still meet people who ask me if I'm related to her. Arlyss had two brothers and a sister, and all are still living as far as I know. I think my cemeteries are public too, so you are welcome to look. If you have any Dettmer questions, I would be glad to try and answer them.

RE: Hagedorn Relatives
I am related to Arlyss. She is my second cousin. I got a work-related phone call the other day, and the guy and I got to talking, and he asked me if I was related to Lewis. I knew there was a Hagedorn in my family tree somewhere, but I had to look to see where. Just for the sake of curiosity, who were Lewis's parents?

I'm also possibly related to some Wesches. My great aunt, also Arlyss's great aunt, May, married a Henry Wesche, and they are buried in Mound Cemetery southeast of Barnes. They apparently had two boys, Warren and Walter, but I don't know anything about either of them. I digress.

This is probably a long shot, but are you related to Lewis and Arlyss Hagedorn?
