It is funny that i finally find where the Brettschneider's came from. Im also a Jill and could not figure out all this on So I thank you so much. Yes it seems they are all named Emma or Carl or Johann. My Grandparents Carl and Emma Brettschneider are buried across town (not in East or West Dundee) it is a shame that all their family is in East Dundee and that is where the family lived for many years. My grandfather:Carl Brettschneider married/ Emma Schleif they in turn had 8 children. thanks so much Jill

Hi Jill, I would like to first thank you for all that you do for Find a Grave. I did want to bring your attention that you have two duplicate entries for the above memorial - See: 24690682 and 17715087. If you can please let me know which one you will delete so I know which memorial number I will keep for my records. Thanks! Paula

RE: 67309674 Meta Eickstaedt
No. Sorry. I did not know Meta Eickstaedt. In 2014 I photographed every marker in Evergreen Cemetery, so that's why my photo is posted to that memorial.

Thank you so much for taking the picture of my Aunt Helen's memorial stone. I am not able to physically travel so this really means a lot to me.
By the way are you related to Helen by chance.

RE: 17687740
Thank you Jill. And thank you for asking if I'd like it transferred to me. I didn't realize that was an option. But I'll hold off for now until I finish tying all of the related family in the East and West Dundee Cemeteries together. Then I'll reach out to see if I can still do that and share the family links. These German relatives are tricky. They all arrived here in this town and they all have the same names :) But I have vital records on order and I'm putting it all together. Take care and thank you for all you do!

RE: Regarding Carl Shultz 21160278
I was just wondering and asking you since you are the manager of the memorial. I won't be following up. It's not my family. I was looking for someone else. My best to you

Regarding Carl Shultz 21160278
IS Carl actually buried here?

OR was the stone set when Minna died, Carl's name put on, Carl moved and he is possibly buried elsewhere?

Unfortunately I do not know if Carl is actually buried in the plot. I am only going by what is says on the headstone.

You may want to call the cemetery directly to see if they would be able to let you know. Dundee Cemetery East 1-847-836-5069

re: Rhinehart family in Kansas
I found a clara Rhinehart buried in Maple Hill Cemetery in KC,KS, but there was no memorial page in findagrave for her. I created one today.
I also started looking up ifo about her. Clara was listed in the city directory with her husband Thomas A Rhinehart and children Thomas Junior and Melrene in the 1930 Census in KC,KS. I found this family in Chicago in 1940 Census. Thomas has remarried to Ann and has a 4-year-old son Vernon as well as the two older children. From the census info I learned that Clara and Thomas were from Stephens, Arkansas.
Was Melrene the middle name of Helen M whose memorial page you manage?

Clara died in 1939 at age 37, and her stone says "Mother". I was saddened to see that her grave has never been decorated when I go to my great-aunt's grave, so I "adopted" Clara's grave in case her family does not know where she is buried or lives too far away to be able to visit her grave.
