NOTE: Birth Date
A contributor has requested that the birth date be changed to the year 1893 due only to a newspaper article that was read. That information is provided here but will not replace what was originally transcribed by the local DAR Chapter in 1962. Transcriptions were taken directly from headstones at the time. (Newspapers from that era are rift with errors: name spelling, dates, etc.)

The cemetery is located on the SW corner So. Lake Road (CR-E0890 Rd.) & CR-N3410 Rd..
Directions: Travel north on SH-18 from Chandler (past the turnpike (I-44)) to So. Lake Road aka CR-E0890, the first section line on left. Turn & travel due west abt. 2-1/2 miles. Cemetery is now cleared, fenced and has a new sign.

Note: First birth date was correct. She was 2 years old when brother Otto shot her with a shotgun. Alma was my Great Grandmother, Lina Mauch's Sister. Newspaper article cited is incorrect. Buried next to her is mother, Pauline.
