THIS MEMORIAL IS THE ORIGINAL ADDED BY ME IN EARLY 2010. I HAVE ADDED ANOTHER MEMORIAL WITH THE CORRECT SURNAME SO THAT FAMILY MAY LOCATE THEIR ANCESTORS AND TO PREVENT ANY DUPLICATES FROM BEING ADDED.

THE SPELLING OF THE FAMILIES LAST NAME ON THE HEADSTONES IS A MISSPELLING OF SURNAME ROQUET. FRANK ROQUET CHOSE TO GO BY THE SURNAME ROCKEY, WHICH HIS FAMILY WENT BY THROUGHOUT THEIR LIFETIMES.

THE CORRECT MEMORIAL IS HERE GERTRUDE SCHMIDT ROCKEY 'ROQUET'

GERTRUDES HUSBAND ROSS C. ROCKEY WAS THE SON OF FRANK ROQUET 'ROCKEY'.

FRANK AND HIS FAMILY CHOSE TO GO BY THE SURNAME ROCKEY, WHICH HE USED THROUGHOUT HIS LIFETIME AS DID HIS CHILDREN. ALL OBITUARIES, FAMILY CENSUS DOCUMENTS, FREMONT SCHOOL PHOTOS FOR NORMAN, ROSS AND RELLA, WHITE FAMILY PORTRAITS AND REFERENCE IN REGIONAL HISTORY BOOKS REFERENCE THE NAME CORRECTLY AS ROCKEY.

ROQUET FAMILY STILL LIVING IN FREMONT SPELL THEIR SURNAME ROQUET BUT PRONOUNCE IT ROCKY.
