RE: Murnahans
The following message was left on Earl Jackson Murnahan's Find A Grave memorial about his father James H. Murnahan...

My information of his father is that he died Marcch 30, 1885 in Glen Elder, Mitchell Co, Kansas. He was a Civil War Veteran.... It is my understanding that there is a Civil War marker for him. Any information you might know??
Thank you.

Hi Connie,
I was at the cemetery today. The Fassler's are not buried there. I talk to the caretaker and the town clerk and I have their obituary. The are intured in a Mausoleum in Denver. If you would like the obit, I will be more than happy to pass it on to you.

You're very welcome. Glad to help. Do you want me to add today's updated photo with Orville's date of passing to Bonnie's memorial page?

James Schwindt
Hello Connie

I went to the cemetery today to fulfill your request for James.

The cemetery office told me they show a J. Schwindt owns a plot in Section J, Plot 261, Grave 8, but they do not list a burial for him. I went to the plot, and found a, Carl & Evelyn Schwindt, but no James.

Carl & Evelyn already have memorials on Find a grave.

Hi, I visited St. Joseph's Cemetery and took a photo of her grave-site. There is no marker on it at the present time, but will keep checking. Hopefully there will be one sometime this year.
Best Wishes, Cheryl S.

RE: Orlando W Voth
I'm not sure. The way the cemetery is set up is that they mostly inter by date of death, so you can pretty well chronologically walk the cemetery.Some couples are interred together, but I knew a few people, now buried there, who are separated from their lifetime spouse. It makes for a tidy, if somewhat boring setup. I also noticed that almost every marker had the complete birth and death dates - or at least the more current ones do.

This photo shoot was part of a road trip, and it may be a month or two before I'm back in that area. I can check, if I remember. :)

Catharina Schaefer Schwindt memorial # 92676819
Connie Schwindt Rumold----Would love to have your thoughts--- I noticed your comment on the Catharine Schwindt memorial # 92676819
Thank you so much for your work on Find A Grave--- I have in my hands the genealogist chart (very very large paper) from I believe the FOOS family and I think they got it from Dr. Pleve at the NHSGR center. It shows that Nicolaus b. 6/15/1822 in Norka and married in 1841 to Anna Catharina Schafer b. 8/19/1822 in Norka--
according to this chart......
Anna Catharina was the daughter of Conrad Schafer b. 7/27/1795 in Norka and died 3/2/1863. Conrad Schafer married in 12/27/1812 to Anna Maria Hohenstein b. 2/4/1795 in Norka and died after 1861.

I would be happy to take a photo with my cell phone and mail this info to your email if you'd like to have it. My mother was Lucille Merrick (grand daughter of Catharine Schafer Schwindt and Nicholas Schwindt who helped raise the money for the cemetery in Bison Kansas grave marker Nicholas Schwindt and Catharine Schafer in 1967. (it was believed that he Kaiser name could have come from a previous marriage-- but no one had documentation on that. Your thoughts??

Springfield Cemetery (MA)
Rollin A Richmond (1875-?
Rollin A Richmond, who died on Thurs., Jan. 13, 1921 in his home at 25 Guild St., Springfield, aged 74 is the ONLY Rollin Richmond who is buried at Springfield Cemetery. His funeral was conducted on Mon., Jan. 17, 1921 at Graham's Chapel at 39 Howard St, at 2:00 pm and the burial took place at Springfield Cemetery. He is in a "Single Grave", located at "Woodide Ave, rear of Ladd lot." Today, I believe this location may refer to Maple Ave., as Woodside Ave is now an obsolete road name. See memorial # 177214185.

the memorial of your photo requested, Rollin A Richmond with a birth date given as 1875 must be referring to Rollin Jr.

Rollin Jr. is the lot owner of Lot #2699. BUT he is not buried there. In fact, he does not even appear to be buried at Springfield Cemetery!

People sometimes post on Findagrave what they WISH were true, and not always reality. The posting of memorial #158540926 appears to be such a case.

Popp family in Lincoln
Glad to help piece together this family. The Popp address on the burial record is part of the South Bottoms Historic District in Lincoln. Germans from Russia immigrated to this area in the late 1800's.

There is also another Conrad Schleiger in the book I'm using that is not listed on F.A.G. This Conrads dates are 1875 - 15 July 1953. There are also 2 infants listed with only one on F.A.G.. One is child of Geo. and has one date 29 Aug.1923. The second entry says child of G.W. and date 29 Aug. 1923. Twins maybe? Or transcription error in the book.Most of the Schleigers are buried in Section L, Lot 39. It's a LARGE lot, and has a whole row, empty or unmarked. The cemetery office will be open Monday afternoon, and I'll try to get there and have them print me off a correct list.

Katherine Schlieger
I found Katherine buried with her husband. If you want to remove the note she is unmarked. I'm putting her headstone on her memorial.
Greenwood has a kiosk with a computer in it which is wonderful for "gravers"! But it is broke and out for repairs. The cemetery office is only open a few hours a week. So I've been using a book done by a group back in the late 80's early 90's and apparently found a mistake on plot number.

RE: PVT Martin F Richmond
You're welcome and I added captions to every picture of my observations. I never saw any sign of the broken top, it probably crumbled away or got sunken and buried under the ground over time. I noticed the date of death says Feb 18 on marker and Greenwood's burial records have her date of death as the 17th. Regardless, at least she had a stone to photograph. I hate having to report back on a request when there is no marker. Regards, Amy

Jacob Popp
Hello, Connie. This little guy took a lot of trips to the cemetery office. Initially I was told he was in Free Ground. That is in section 4. Then told "no", it is in 1B. Went to find and was exact spot where John Yakel was. And, of course, you probably know Yakel was married to a Schwindt. Thought maybe this was a grandfather and maybe two were in one spot since Jacob was a child, so, looked into Yakels. Marker for "John Jakel" in next space. Found this to be John Yakel's son. Anyway, back to the office and after much discussion, Wyuka's map for 1B has big open areas which were called free ground. Fortunately, the area where Jacob lies is on a secret map that is hard to get a hold of. Spaces are numbered, so confusion with numbers in non-free ground is easy. I did however find the area of Jacob's burial. I will submit edit for space. Without evidence, of coruse, I suspect the other Jacob Popp to be in this Free Ground as most of the few people in there are difficult for the office people to track down. Spelling could be off as is in Jakel and Yakel which probably comes from the original pronunciation of j's. Saw immigration roster for Jakels and they were with "Bopp" family, all coming to Nebraska. Probably "Popp". Who knows what Wyuka may have it as. I will see what I can find out about free grounders. Sorry to be so long winded. Thanks. Kevin.

That you for responding. That gives me the energy to keep working on this project. In this old cemetery, we have other member of the pratt family.
I would have too look at my research, but off hand, I believe the Minnie was related to Andi Card. I will look into it tomorrow.
You joy is my happiness.

RE: Marker photos
Sometimes I just Google the name Richard H Albers and see what comes up. There is a selection for images so you can look at pictures. It would be difficult for me to know which one he is. You can always call the cemetery for locations. If you get one let me know and I will get the picture.

RE: Berdina Koehler
Connie, No, that's not him. We moved to Elmwood in 1979 and we met them sometime after that. So he could not have died in 1976. I don't remember hearing when he died, but my best guess would be sometime in the 90's. Ken

RE: Berdina Koehler
I don't know where Berdena's second husband is buried. He's apparently not here in Elmwood. I remember both of them. I can't say when he died, but it was before she did, I'm sure. She was living in a nursing home in Lincoln when she passed. Before that, she lived next door to my daughter and her husband.

I'd be happy to transfer the memorial to you. If there's anything else I can do, just let me know.
