Thanks so much for accepting the connection requests I sent. It seems to be a mission of mine- to connect as many people to their 'lost' families as possible, and you've certainly helped with Robert.
|Gary L. and Wilma (Knigge) Luther||Catherine Messing|
THANKS so very much for transferring Catherine Messing to me. Greatly appreciated.
|Art & Mary Ehlert||Birkholz|
I'm looking for family history on a Josephine Sophia Birkholz who married a Wolfgram. Any connection to William Birkholz on Find a Grave?
Thank you so much for the photo. It helps putting the puzzle together.

Thanks for the Help.

This is very long so please bear with me.
I'm asking you to look very closely at 2 of these markers and see if the pieces to this puzzle can fit. Those stones are in such a terrible condition, that I don't know how you were able to do as well as you did. I have studied the pictures by blowing them up and I think I could be right....or is it that I want it to work so badly that I see what I want to see.
In the Markesan Memorial Cemetery, Markesan, Wisconsin where there are many of the Card family buried there are 5 children buried that say Child of E. & R. Card on the markers. I am certain that these are the children of my Elisha and Rose., but I am still trying to tie things together. Four of these children died in a 2 week span from Dec 16, 1880 to Jan 1. 1881.
Elizabeth L Card d Dec. 16, 1880. You were so kind to take the pictures for me.....this helped me a lot. You transcribed the marker as she was 3 yrs 10 mo old. My Elisha and Rose had a daughter Elizabeth according to the census records who would have been about 13 yrs old in 1880. I can't tell for sure by the picture....but I think that 3 could really be 13.
Fordyce W d Dec 17, 1880 16 years old.....My Elisha and Rose had a son Fred W. according to the 1870 census records....in 1880 the census has this child as Fordice W. So this one matches up
Aggie A. Card d Dec 19, 1880 in 1880 census they have a daughter Agnes A. Think this one is for certain.
Ivan H. Card d. Jan 1, 1881. Could this be the Idah May that was 3 months old when the census was taken on June 21, 1880. According to the age on the marker this would figure correct....so now to determine is the name incorrect on the census or again because of the condition of the marker is this actually what it says.
Anson E Card b 2 Apr 1862 d Oct. 19, 1864. according to the age on the marker....he wouldn't have been born yet in 1860 and is gone before 1865 so this one would connect to this family only on the basis of the "Child of E and R Card" on the marker.
I find the family in 1870, Only 3 children, Fred, Elizabeth and Rosana
1880 I find the family with a transcription error. They have been transcribed as Cavel if you look close you can see that it is Card. The family is Elisha 43, Rose 36, Fordice W. 15, Elisebeth M. 13, Rose Ann 10, Agnes A 4 and Idah May 3 months.
1875, This census gives only numbers....2 white males and 3 white females
1885 now only 1 white male and 2 white females. This would reflect the death of Fordice, Elizabeth, Agnes and Idah May sometime between 1880 and 1885.
In the 1900 census it says that Rose had 6 children with 1 living. This all adds up when I study it, but it is all conjecture....no true proof.
Elisha and Rose are my husbands great grandparents. The daughter Rose Ann or Rosanna who is not buried with the others is my husbands grandmother and she is buried in Blue Earth MN where Elisha and Rose are also buried. Any help you can give me with this would be so much appreciated. Thank you again for putting these graves on Find A Grave. You are doing a big service to family members.
