RE: stone that is toppled over
Interesting. I thought it was the folks you were looking for based on the upright legible Eliz Vogt (1932). I'll remove it. You'll have to contact the church and ask to speak to Danny. He's in charge of the cemetery and can find out where they're buried; they don't have stones so I don't know where they are. I'd get the names of the plots around them too because there's no signage on these old sections telling you where you are. Same for the remaining 3 photo requests for Bussmans. None of them have stones.

Eliz. Naab (d. 1860) I GOT IT :)
It's her!! I'm so happy :) I'll be uploading the photo soon; believe it it or not, it actually say; "Geb Jerge" at the bottom. It washed off perfectly. The "und Mutter" means "and Mother" so the top line must say something like Loving wife ... I still make that out but we know it's her 100%.

Thank you for connecting the children of Joseph & Maria Anna Jerge. If you know of more, feel free to keep connecting them in you have time. I'll probably check back in with you regarding where these folks where born. Joseph's stone does have the exact town in Bayern where he was born and the caretaker wants me to write something up for the church bulletin regarding what I'm doing.

We're going to try to get some volunteers to help probe sections and mark the off so I can dig.

RE: St. Mary's cemetery - Eliz. Naab (d. 1860)
I went there today all prepared to make some headway on getting the dried mud off the stone. I even remembered to bring a watering can so I could wash it off. I went to three different spigots and the water wasn't turned on in the cemetery :/

RE: St. Mary's cemetery - Eliz. Naab (d. 1860)
No problem. I was really happy when I saw her name. My only concern is what the first word above her name is. The second word is either Mutter or Matter. If it says "geb Matter" it's not her. I wish it had a date on it. I'll figure it out though, it might just take a while.

I'm glad you found the Jospeh & Maria Jerge memorials. His stone was 8 inches under and took about 3 hours over two days to clear off. I know they had a lot of children so feel free to connect them if you'd like. I'm not familiar enough with them to do it myself. The name is so common that I don't want to attach wrong people to them.

I'll see what I can do about getting the toppled Vogt monument up-righted. I'll update you on any progress I make on the Eliz. Naab stone or the Vogt stone.

St. Mary's cemetery - Eliz. Naab (d. 1860)
I was given permission a few weeks ago to start probing for fallen stones in the oldest section of the cemetery. The area I'm working in contains burials in the 1840's - 1860's. Pretty sure I just found your Elizabeth Naab if you'd like to put in a photo request.

The stone is broken and no date or age can be seen; but I know the area contains burials in that time frame. I have no reason to believe it isn't her. Above her name it looks like it says "Our Mutter" although I don't know why one word would be in English and one in German.

The stone needs more work; it was buried face down and there's a good deal of dried dirt on the top line so I couldn't read it. I'll wash it off next time I'm there and see if I can pick up more info.

St. John's photo request
Your St. John request would be easier to find with plot info...the office gave me that over the phone for a family member. #716-892-7293.

Vogt; Jacob, Eliz., & Elizabeth
There are no stones for Jacob or his wife Elizabeth. The picture that on her stone is not hers, it's the Elizabeth who died in 1932.

I've added a photo to her memorial (Eliz. 1932) to show there are two fallen stones next to hers that are upside so you can't see them name(s).

Until they're flipped right side up, there's no telling who they belong too. If you want to call or write the cemetery and ask them to flip the stones, I'd be happy to photograph them if they're Vogt stones.

Valentine Sandel - 1902
I'm fulfilling the photo request for him however, the info on the memorial is incorrect. I've put through an edit and asked the person who maintains it to change the info in the bio.

This is 8 yer old Valentine, son of Valentine & Anna (Korn) Sandel. The father Valentine moved to Washington state and died there in 1921.

There is no stone in the plot for Valentine, the 8 year old child.

the 1st Eliz. Naab
I just went through the death records again. The surname in the index column says "Jerge" when it should say NAAB. I'll look on the bright side, at least we have a date of death for her, but she does not have stone.
