Subject: KRAMER, Elizabeth and Christopher
Date: Mon, 29 Aug 2005 20:22:42 -0400
I am new to this list and to researching in Indiana. I am hoping to
receive some assistance from the people on this list.
Christopher KRAMER, b 1839 Germany, married my gr-grandaunt Bridget
Early in Canada in 1865. After her death in 1873 and sometime before
1880, Christopher took his two sons, John and George Anthony and a
daughter Ann and settled in Wabash, Wabash County, Indiana. Christopher
is recorded as marrying a second wife, Nancy Dwyer, in Canada just a few
months after the death of Bridget.
I recently received the death certificate for Christopher in 1909 and
noted that he then had a wife named Elizabeth. Presumably she would have
been his third wife and this is confirmed by the 1880 census for Wabash
County which states she is his wife and she was born in Canada. Likely
they were also married in Canada..
Christopher was a Roman Catholic and he died in Peru, Miami County where
the family lived for some time so in all likelihood he is buried in an
RC cemetery somewhere near the city. There are no on-line cemetery
databases so I am unable to locate an inscription or burial record for
him or Elizabeth.
Could some kind person look through the cemetery inscriptions for the
Peru area to see if Christopher and Elizabeth Kramer are buried locally?
Any assistance would be most appreciated.
