Bio and Links
I got the family tree bug early 2008. My mother started tracing our family in the late 1980s. How the tools we used changed since then.

I've found Find-A-Grave site very helpful with my Shreve line and a little with the Jennings.

I've haven't had much luck yet on my maternal side.

Daniel Zimmer
Yes, I have the mini-biography from the Hist of Iowa County. I don't have the obit and would like to get the details of it so I can get a copy.
I believe that he was the brother of Elizabeth Zimmer Zoeller Campbell. She is my gggrandmother who was born in 1835 and came to America abt the age of 3. Her obit was in the 12/5/1913 La Crosse Tribune. She lived in Highland, Iowa Cty prior to her marriage to Louis Zoeller and lived in Galena, IL until moving back to live w her daughter Anna C Mulder. Her death certificate says her father was Daniel, but no mother was listed. I have photos of Daniel's grandchildren Hugo and Clara Zimmer.

Daniel Zimmer / Calvary in Cobb
First I want to thank you for posting the information on Amelia N Zimmer and Daniel Zimmer. I'd looked all over for his death and didn't find it until now. But I have a question -are you sure that the birth yr is correct? I ask because this goes against all the census records from 1850-80 with Amelia is he was b abt 1821. There is a lot of lichen on the tombstone.

RE: No Strutts In East Side Cemetery
My grandmother's history states Nicholas Arthur died June 7, 1891, age 74, so perhaps there was a false report of his death.

RE: No Strutts In East Side Cemetery
Thank you again for the help. Keedysville is not far from me at all, a 30 minute drive toward Sharpsburg.

My 3xgreat-grandfather, Nicholas Arthur (9419676), is buried in the East Side Cemetery in Dodgeville. FindAGrave says there is an inscription on his tombstone, "Co. A 16th U S Inf - GAR" but I cannot find him in the SUVCW database. Do you have any idea why he would not be found in that database?

RE: No Strutts In East Side Cemetery
Thank you very much for that information. I'll post it on John's memorial now. I can't find Crystal Springs, MD via Google. Funny, I live in Maryland!

RE: No Strutts In East Side Cemetery
After I sent you that last message and saw East Side Cemetery in Dodgeville and Eastside Cemetery In Ridgeway, I realized my mistakes. Thanks for your help in correcting them. If you have Civil War record info to add to John Frost Strutt's memorial, that would be fantastic.

No Strutts In East Side Cemetery
Thank you for your information that no Strutt's are buried in the East Side Cemetery, but that the Primitive Methodist Cemetery is closely associated with the Strutts. My grandmother, Genevieve June Strutt Buske, who grew up in Ridgeway, noted in the family history she wrote that her grandfather, John Frost Strutt, as well as her parents, Albert and Henrietta Arthur Strutt, were buried in the East Side Cemetery, along with the Arthur's, her mother's parents. From what you are saying, stating that any Strutt's are buried in East Side would be an error. In the history she wrote, she said that John Frost Strutt's father, Thomas Strutt, was a minister with the Primitive Methodist circuit, so what you are saying aligns with that.

If John Frost Strutt's death record states he was buried in the PM Cemetery, I will make that correction.

Thank you,
Rick Buske

Re James Knudson
I was unaware that he was your gr. gr. grandfather. I am connected I guess as we all are intertwined. As we find when we do genealogy.
I am WI born and have lots of family buried and alive and well in Sauk Co. and lots of southern WI. I enjoy finding out about the people who have lived there and perhaps were neighbors, business associates, friends or perhaps traveled together from the east, etc. If I can help with information, I try to do so.
Best Regards

RE: Elizabeth A Tonkin Normann
I'm not directly related. The Normann line comes from my daughter's ex-husband. Most of the info I received from a GEDCom of a relative. Any memorials that I have, I'll be glad to transfer to you.

East Side Cemetery ridgeway
Thank you so much for all your hard work. My whole family is buried at East Side. I have been going there since 1990 when my father passed but never really knew who was buried there. I have been looking for information on my family for so long and I now know so much thanks to you. All the pictures are great.
