|Kristi Monroe Bender||RE: Schmidts|
When you gave the name Schmidt I figured there was a good chance they were at Catherine. There are a ton of them there. My husband's family is Schmitt. The picture on Jacob's of the big concrete sign is the settler's sign. If I put it on there, then his name is on it. It's engraved with the church records for the earliest settlers of Catherine and has a map that shows which plot is theirs, if they know.

Oh...If you have scans of photos of their makers you can email them to me at email@example.com. It might be possible to match the details if the names are missing.
|Kristi Monroe Bender||RE: Metal headstones|
These metal crosses are all over Rush, Russell and Ellis counties in the Volga German cemeteries. From what I understand, they were the type they used back in Russia. They were made by local men. My husband's gg-grandfather was a blacksmith and made a lot of them.
One big problem with these is that somewhere along the line many of the name plates have either worn/rusted over or been painted over. Some never had one. I'm within an hour or two of most of these cemeteries and spent a lot of time in them last fall.
If they had these crosses, they're Volga German Catholics and most likely buried in the cemetery of whichever church they attended. I can't promise anything, but if you'd like to give me their names, I might be able to get an idea which community they were from or keep an eye out for them.
Diane, Just an FYI but Richard is actually located in Section E, 218 not in F.

You are welcome.....one of the very last homes that Urban built was a very dear friend of ours. Our kids also go to St. Marks too!

I am getting ready to add them - all of them were extremely hard to photograph and two of them were extremely worn.
I wish they had been better!
