RE: Anna Marie Klaus
Her father was Conrad Klaus and she also had a brother Conrad who lived in Portland

Conrad Klaus was born on 10 September 1867 in Alt-Norka, Russia, where he was also baptized and confirmed. In 1893 he married Amalia, nee Fiedel, with whom he lived for 38 years in happy union. This marriage was blessed with eight children (5 boys and 3 girls). Two sons and a daughter preceded their father in death. In 1906 he left his old homeland and emigrated to America with his family. On 26 July he settled in Portland, OR, where he spent the rest of his life.
On 9 September 1931 he contracted a severe lung infection and on 15 September he went to his eternal resting place. He lived to be 63 years, 9 months and 5 days old. He leaves behind him his grieving widow, three sons, two daughters, three brothers, a sister and his aged step-mother in Russia, a sister in Markola, OR; six grandchildren and many friends. He was loyal member of the First German Ebenezer Congregation. May God comfort the mourners!
Portland, OR Ebenezer-Congregation G. H. Graf, Pastor

RE: Anna Marie Klaus

I have been moving to research was put on back burner for a few months. Emma is a 3rd cousin through my Father's family coming from the Yost line. We are also cousins of Henry Klaus. My Grandmother was a Klaus.

Sorry, it took so long for a reply. It's always fun to find new kinfolk..

RE: John Johnson 1866-1922
Well I've run down a few John Johnsons

I had looked up the 1880 census you mentioned so I knew names to look for.

I did not know however that you had some memorials made already on some of the family.

I found one John up in Grand Rapids with the same death as the one that you originally wrote me about which I found odd.

I found a John married to a Carrie that came to the US in 1880. Since one of the kids was born in Michigan in 1880 I figured that is when the family came to the US??

I did notice that the stone on John Sr that was married to Mary/Maria in Hillcrest Cemetery does not match the years you have on the memorial.

I found both death records for the John on the stone that died in 1879 and the one that died in 1898. That could not be him dying in 1879 when he was in the 1880 census??

To start with, who is the John on the stone with Mary? Who is the John on the memorial with Mary and why are they different...guess that doesn't really matter.

Is it Henry or is it John Henry? And what sort of source did that come from? Just want to be sure I am following the right person

Plus there is entire different Johnson family up north but since the parents and some siblings are in Hillcrest I figure the ones up north are not the correct family

All of the stuff is depending on if I have the right people
1-Jennie Johnson's birth record info
2-1900 census with a John married to Carrie with 2 kids Anna and Martha living in Sparta
3-Marriage record info on John and Carrie with a severe misspelling on of his mother-if this is them 23 July 1891 in Newaygo
4-1910 census in Sparta, John- Carrie-Martha and Anna
5-1920 census in Sparta again but Carrie died in 1915 John is widowed with Martha living with him
6-Carries death certificate
7-Martha's marriage to Albert Bjork and they are buried in Hillcrest but I don't think the memorials are made their marriage 29 Nov 1923 in Sparta
8-1930 in Sparta once again John Martha and her husband Albert Bjork together
9-John and Carrie's daughter Anna Louisa's birth record info 20 Nov 1891in Newaygo
10-Martha's death info in 1969 in Sparta-buried in Hillcrest with Albert

I have more but no use writing it out if its the wrong people. Until I hear from ya...I will save all the info in case its the right people. If not it's ok, I like looking for people

Let me know

RE: Henry Johnson 1866-1928
I'm sorry, I don't have any additional info on him and would have to go hunting online to find it.

RE: John&Elizabeth Weber photo
You are so very welcome!! I have been working on transcribing this cemetery for a few years now and have just now finally gotten around to it. The headstones are barely legible but I took photos anyway. I am so glad I was able to help.

Luseland Cemeteries
How would I find out the name of other cemeteries in Luseland. I am doing genealogy on the Foss Families of the US who came from Norway.
The lady I am searching for is Ella Pauline Foss Gudmundsrud Ross b. 6-13-1882 in Menomonie, Dunnd, Wisconsin, married Olaf Nelson Gudmundsrud 8-14-1903 (d. 1918) They lived in Luseland, Saskatchewan, Canada. After his death in 1918 Ella moved with her children to California and changed her name to Ross (because it waas similar to Foss). She diedin Riverside, Riverside, CA 2-15-1971. She was buried with Olaf in Luseland. I have tried different ways of finding other cemeteries in Luseland but have had no luck.
