Church records at St. Anna Parish do not list Elizabeth as buried there, but it was known she died between the 1860 and 1880 census. There are some filled, but unlisted/marked burial plots beside Johann Frankman in the "A" section of the cemetery. We can only speculate that she would have been buried in one of those. Until I found a record at Diocese there was no proof. See photo. Family hand-down stories said that Elizabeth was a daughter of a noble family in Bond, Germany. Johann's father was the coachman for this family and his son, Johann, married Elizabeth against their wishes. The noble family disinherited their daughter and had the new family live in the servant quarters. I believe the children were born in Prussia and first came to New York State. Her son "Henry" homesteaded land (20 acres) at the corner of Ford Road and Sheboygan Road, gaining title from Green Bay in 1850. The remainder of the family did not arrive in Town Russel, Sheboygan County until 1853. Son, James, and wife, Nancy Ann Keenan, may have arrived from New York a little later.
