Hi, my name is Helen and I am a remote Wolfgram cousin. I can give you some suggestions as to how to find where she is buried. Most,not all,Wolfgrams were German Lutherans. I would start by writing letters to Luteran Cemetery Sextons in and near Halsey. She may or may not have had a headstone. If she does, it may not have been entered yet on findagrave but most likely she doesn't have one. Sextons would have information on unmarked graves. Are you near Halsey? You can go to the nearest "big" town for their library or for their univeristy. Almost everyone now has old newspapers on microfilm and you probably can find her obituary as I did with my great great grandmothers 1903 obit. Or if you are near an extrodinarily large university as I am, they may have that paper on microfilm. Here in Oregon the Univerisity of Oregon has a newspaper microfilm department the size of a McMansion with every state. I checked findagrave and did not find an entry for her. And finally don't be so sure where she is buried. My great grandfather died here in Oregon in 1942 only to be buried in Flasher N.D 4 days later.
