I am looking for birth and death dates on three family members that I think may be at Lutheran Cemetery, that seemed to be that family sight. The name and info I have is:

Hazel T Witt Born, May 1897 think she died at the age of 25 or 26
Herbert Witt died June 12, 1915 we think he may have been just a few months old
Elmer Witt Born June 1895 may of died around 5 years old

I did go through your pictures but could not find them. I figured they were ones hard to read. Can you help me?

My Grandparents had two children born to them and then they died during the delivery. Because they were unable to afford a burial plot for the two children, they were buried on top of my great-grandparents. I wanted to know if your records indicated this? I believe they would be under the name Infant Freese. Is it possible to have an engraving done on the headstone to at least show that they are there? My mother is the only living relative left and these would have been her siblings.

I see you have a Fredricka Demmin could you tell me what the headstone says. I can't read it.
I live in California and can't visit the cemetery. My husband's Mother was a Demmin. Do you know if the cemetery has any information on the people that were buried in 1923 I think that is the Date.
thank you for all your help and time.
