Bio and Links
Bio Photo Not long ago genealogical research was limited to retired intellectuals who wrote family histories that were little more than repositories of dates and places. More and more people today are wanting to record the lives and experiences of their parents, grandparents and other ancestors. Books are now being written filled with stories, humor and interesting events as well as family relationships. But these books are not always as widely available as they could be. People continue to put more and more writing on tombstones, but size and cost are the limitations. Personal and family websites are becoming more popular since they provide more room to write, but there are drawbacks, such as when they completely disappear from the net. That is why this website is so popular. It is easy to define family relationships and link between relatives as well as add some rather large biographies. This is why it is of interest to me. I must also give credit to those who untiringly record cemeteries that produce leads that I have followed when nothing else has been available.

Hi Richard, I have added a better photo of William's headstone and also added a photo of John's headstone at Pine Street Cemetery.

I am the guy that did the sign for Pine Street Cemetery. Something I have intended to do for several years and finally completed. Even repainted the sign at Chestnut Hill Cemetery.

Will also send you and family a early "Happy Thanksgiving" greeting. Mark Weitzel

I have added gravestone photos on the Findagrave memorials for August's grandparents: #160086998 John Gerholz(1861-8/23/1952) & #160086926 Bertha Gerholz (1857-10/30/1943). I can look up their obits & baby August Gerholz's obit in the library newspaper archives if you are interested. Are you related?

RE: Minnie Gums in Evergreen Cemetery, Fort Atkinson, WI
There was a Charles C Leschinsky who lived in Hardin County and later remarried (?) and moved from the area. The "C" in his middle name could possibly be Clarence - I don't know this for sure. Do what you like with the information - I would suspect, if she did marry, it was for a very, very short period of time (1-2 years max) due to her early death. The obit information is a puzzle then.

Minnie Gums in Evergreen Cemetery, Fort Atkinson, WI

I got this information from the bio you entered on her father, Christian Gums and it is also confirmed in the obit of Eliza Gums Koester's #97173844

RE: Betcher Graves
Hi Richard. Eva Lapointe was my paternal Great Great Grandmother - give me a few days to research this further, I have copies of most of the marriage records on this side and am happy to correct the memorial as needed. I'll let you know when it's completed.

My best wishes,
Kellie Walton

RE: Lorena Spaulding
As for this, I didn't ignore jack squat. You never sent it. I have no record of ever receiving an edit on a bio for this person. I even looked back through my email logs for the past four months. If you want added, please send again and I'll add.

RE: Sadie R. Blair
After I click accept it automatically clears all entries. I don't know who you are talking about.

Please send the memorial thru the edit tab on the memorial page, add a note for what you want done.

thanks a bunch
