RE: Demerath's
I would try (815) 376-6661, which is the East Grove Union Church, as the cemetery is AKA East Grove Cemetery.

Might not help, but it's worth a try!

RE: Demerath's
If you look at the family picture, Mother and Father are behind the main stone.

The small stone to the left says Grandma, I believe.

The first one to the left says Catherine.

The second on the right says Joseph & Anna.

I did take individual pictures of them, just haven't gotten them uploaded yet.

RE: Mildred and Henry Adelman
All the information I have on the Adelmans is as listed in the bio sections. Tyler was living in Los Angeles in 1960 - I'm in Butte County (100 mi north of Sacramento), and there are no listings in N. California phone books for anyone by that name. Sorry. A

RE: Mathew Lenz
My pleasure. His stone was nearly covered over as it has sunk quite a ways into the ground. It should be lifted and put on a concrete base. If you are a descendent or if you know any of his descendants who would care to pursue that, let me know and I can find contact info. If not, no problem. Just FYI.

Christina Dralle
I found the Dralle monument at Hampshire Center Cemetery. I hadn't read the remarks left by another contributor before I posted the photo. The marker is barely legible. There was a marker almost buried in the ground beside the taller monument. What I could read of it seemed to be a verse in German, but half of that marker was in mud and not readable. I did search the entire cemetery and this was the only marker for "Dralle." Sorry.

RE: Christina Dralle
The only way would be to exhume. Sometimes they can probe down with a rod but in 1903 bodies would have been in wooden coffins which would be deteriorated by now as would the body. All graves for Hampshire Center, Doty, and Aurand Evangelical cemeteries have been entered on FindAGrave. The only Hampshire cemetery not fully entered is St. Charles Borromeo Catholic and I checked their Dralle. I will try to keep the name in my notes. The local library has copies of the newspaper at that time. Perhaps I will run across an obit at some point.

Franklin Niebolte

Are you sure Franklin Niebolte is buried in the Saint Peter and Paul Cemetery? I can't find him the cemetery records. Is it possible that he could be in the Saint Joseph Cemetery in Saint Joseph, MN? His obituary would probably list it but I can't find it online.

Semper Fi,
