RE: Oakland Center Cemetery
No, it's not necessary. I was just curious as to why they weren't together in the same place. I head out for photos quite often and just came across it and thought it an anomoly. We all become slueths after some time, don't we? My grandparents are in Union.

RE: Oakland Center Cemetery
Thanks for the info! The reason I ask is because Lloyd Weckler is listed in Union Cemetery and his wife Vivian is listed in Oakland Center Cemetery.
So I thought MAYBE they were the same cemetery.

Hi, can you tell me if this is the same as Union Cemetery on Hwy J?

Hello William
Thanks for all of your work on here. I'm not sure how we're related, but I'm certain we are. I live in Rockford, IL, but get to Fort often to help my 87 year old Aunt Jean Hummel out. I would love to meet you for coffee. Let me know- Gail Hummel

Kreutz relatives
Thank you for posting the Kreutz tombstones here. I see that the Scherwitz family married both Johann Heinrich Kreutz descendants, and also Philip Kreutz descendants. I always think it's fun when you can match up two families where the inlaws are cousins of inlaws. Hey there were only so many families around 150 years ago in some areas.
Thanks again
Mary Higgins, 5 generation from Johann Heinrich Kreutz.
