I am trying to locate the cemetery my great great grandparents are buried. Rudolph Christ was born in Switzerland on 21 Dec 1828. He was a farm laborer that froze to death in Jan/Feb 1870. His wife, Theresa Knoepfel born on 28 Sept 1862 in Germany, she died prior to his death leaving a son, Gustav 7rs old an orphan. Rudolph and Theresa were married on 28 Sep 1862 in Sauk Co., Wisconsin. He died in Waumandee, Buffalo, Wisconsin. I've tried looking for newspaper articles of a snow storm in Jan/Feb 1870 maybe there is mention of his death and where he was buried. Thank you.
