RE: Dutschmann
Yep, in the "Old Jail".

RE: Dutschmann
You might give the library a call? 325-762-2672 Or even contact the newspaper or The Old Jail Art Center, which seems to have a lot of historical stuff. Good luck!!

RE: Dutschmann
It makes you want to smack them for not publishing more details... the newspaper, that is. :)

RE: mersiovsky
Sent you an email with two links to newspaper articles regarding the initial injury and announcing his death. No burial location mentioned, unfortunately.

RE: mersiovsky
Debby, what year did he pass?

Added by Ferret on Apr 02, 2017 11:48 PM

RE: Mersiovsky
No, not related, I was working on the Winkler family and was having issues making heads or tails out of Maria Sommers Winkler's parents - didn't make sense that her mom's maiden name was Sommers so I did some digging.

So Matthaus isn't buried at St Paul Lutheran Cemetery? Or were you looking for his brother?

There is still something wrong with the way her name is entered. You can't see it when you look at the name fields in the edit page, but I can tell by looking at it on the memorial's main page. I think if you accept my newest edit it should fix it. You don't need her last name in any field except the last name. And it looks like you have quotation marks somewhere...they don't belong.

From the FAQs:
Maiden name only used if the individual was married and took the spouse's last name as their new last name. If the deceased was never married, then the last name is placed in the "Last Name" field, NOT in the "Maiden Name" field.
Do not use any other punctuation within any Name Field. (other than periods, hyphens, and apostrophes)

Hope this helps!

Ouch! I hope you didn't get any damage from that tornado last night!? Some friends in Lakeview (Hill County) sure were hit hard. No injuries but house badly damaged.

I don't remember what info that I suggested, but it looks like your info is correct. Thanks.

RE: Leroy Ogwin
It's ok. Perhaps you haven't looked at your edit tab in a while. It's at the top of your Contributor page where your messages are.

Thanks again, Randy

RE: Leroy Ogwin
I think I sent the original request for edits a while ago, and I have heard if they are not done in a two or three weeks or so, Find a Grave's "system" does them automatically...

Thanks for volunteering on Find A Grave...

Hi Debby...I hope you don't mind but I just transferred the memorial over to you. I am going through a hard time here at home. If you want any of IdaF's memorials and I am not connected I will transfer to you.

And another
Since you are Wendish, thought I'd share my Facebook post from tonight:

Happy Ptaškowa swajźba (The Birds' Wedding)

Several days ago, I posted about my joining the Daughters of the Republic of Texas through my ancestry on my mother's side. Today, you get a brief lesson on a custom from my ancestry on my father's side. As you probably know by now (since we are "friends," Wukasch is Wendish).

The Texas Wends are a group of people all descended from a Lutheran congregation of 588 Sorbian/Wendish people who emigrated from Lusatia (part of Germany) to Texas in 1854. This term (The Wends of Texas) also refers to other emigrations (and all their descendants) that occurred before and/or after the 1854 emigration.

So, back to The Birds' Wedding . . .

The Birds' Wedding (Ptaškowa swajźba) is a Wendish custom among the Sorbs (Wends) of Lusatia in Germany. It's called Vogelhochzeit in Germany and still celebrated by the children in Germany's Wendish communities. On the evening of January 24th, children put empty plates outside on window ledges, walls, or fence posts. On the morning of the 25th, they wake to find pastries, meringues, and candy in the shape of birds, usually magpies. The birds are believed to have left the treats as they celebrate their wedding.

The Birds' Wedding has its roots in the pre-Christian era when people sacrificed food to the spirits of their ancestors and, in turn, expected favors and kindness from the gods of nature. Over time, the sacrificial offerings to ancestors evolved into giving gifts to children.

The Birds' Wedding is said to come from the Upper Sorbian language region (Upper Lusatia) where the custom is common among families. In Lower Lusatia, the Birds' Wedding is celebrated in schools where the children feed the birds during winter and in return, they get to participate in The Birds' Wedding celebrations. A little girl is chosen to be the bride (representing a magpie) and a little boy as the groom (usually a raven). The bridal couple is dressed festively in Lower Sorbian costumes and the other children are masqueraded as birds. I even included a song about The Bird's Wedding that children learn in kindergarten and sing on this day.

Children celebrate the Birds' Wedding on January 25 because this is the time when changes between flora and fauna begin to be observed. It's about this time that several bird species begin to nest and lay eggs and people are looking forward to the coming of spring. (4 photos)
