Bio and Links
Bio Photo I don't manage that many Memorials, but I am passionate about the ones that I do! So please let me know if you have a way to improve the ones that I have.

Most of my ancestors are in Waushara and Waupaca Counties of Wisconsin and I am very thankful for the responsive photo volunteers who continue to answer my photo requests.

Thank you!!
I thought I had the right father for Adolph Gustav, and your information etc has confirmed it.

In return, I think I have found some confirmation about Emma. I found reference to marriage of Emilie Anklam, daughter of Michael and Julia, and her marriage to George Bastean.

Hope this leads to more evidence:

Anna Mai Anklam
Hi Chris,

Just got back from visiting the Mai-Anklam plot in the Northwood Cemetery in Philly. Took some pics of the one big stone that is there. Sadly, my husband's great grandmother is not one of the names on that stone. Her grave unmarked. Could you note that on her memorial? Or, if you're willing, could you transfer her memorial to me? Thanks!

Ray Stumpner
Hi again . . . while researching a local event from the late 1950's, I came across a column titled, "Your Opinions" that includes a quote from Ray Stumpner and a black and white pixel image of Ray. I wanted to let you know I posted it on his memorial page. If you prefer not to have it posted, please let me know and I can take it down & email you the clipping and photo. It was such a thoughtful quote / opinion that Ray shared about the place he lived - I wanted you to know I came across it and posted it on his memorial page.

JM Hickman #83715213
Hi - I was out at the Wolf River Cemetery (Orihula, Winnebago County, Wisconsin)and I happened to see the GAR memorial flag holder for your J.M. Hickman #83715213. If it is of any interest / help to you, I am including the link below that includes some info about the Ohio Civil War Roster - several Hickman's are listed from Ohio - and I found an "Jeremiah L Hickman" (not "M") from Ohio with the following info:
Company E, 138th Regiment, Ohio Infantry - National Guard, Beginning / Ending Rank - Private, Other Names - J.L. Hickman
The name doesn't match the name of J.M Hickman, but I have see some error when data is transcribed from handwritten pages to typed text.
Anyway, here is the link for the Ohio Civil War Roster:

St. John's Cemetery -- Budsin, WI
I'm going to drive to Budsin, WI on Thursday morning to look for August Floeter and Johann Hinz. Do you have any other relatives I should look for while I'm there?

Christian Standke # 107597815
I posted a photo on Christian Standke's memorial of a wide shot of the Standke plots at Zion Ev. Lutheran Church. Click on the photo to read the caption that explains about the shot.

Unfortunately, I think it's the best I can do.
