|Shari Milks||RE: Wilhelmina Hasper obituary|
I have the entries not only from my transcriptions, but the entries from the computer printout from beginning up into the 1990s which I added to my cemetery entries. Kent on findagrave for Evergreen, Manitowoc and I have virtually every burial in Evergreen, except for the unknowns listed under "Child" in the C's and "Unknowns" in the U's.
Once in a great while, we turn up one that's not listed in the burial book, usually from the church record that states the burial is in Evergreen. The cemetery records only go back to 1860 but some of my church records are older than that. Those entries are in ( ) and the ones from the cemetery book printout are in [ ].

|Deborah Cook||RE: Frank Mason Brown|
When Frank Mason Brown was a Senator in California he introduced the bill into Congress to allow construction of the Amador Central Railroad. That was in 1878. Even back then it was required that government approve projects such as this and it was sometimes difficult to gain support from government officials for small railroads. But Frank took up the banner and it was approved. Unfortunately, the railroad was not built until 1904 so he did not live to see his efforts come to fruition.
I am writing a book on passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1875. Your great-great-grandfather was heavily involved in that movement as a member of the House Judiciary Committee, 43rd Congress. In fact, he took some critical decisions that influenced the passage of Civil Rights legislation at that time. I have never been able to find a photograph of Congressman Ward from the 1870s. Do you have one? If, by any chance, there are letters or papers in your family's possession relating to political events in 1873 to 1875, I would be extremely grateful if you could allow me and my colleagues to see them.
