Ockenfels Gravestones

Posted: 10 May 2005 7:32AM GMT
Classification: Cemetery
Surnames: BRECHT, OCKENFELS
On my way to an Iowa Cub's game last year I made my husband stop in Norway, Iowa so that we could find the Cemetary where my great grandparents are buried. It's a town of 600 people, so how many headstones could there be, right? Well, we were running late and I didn't have time to take photo's of every headstone as had been my plan. Instead he raced ahead of me pointing out only those with Brecht or Ockenfels on them. There were about 120 Brecht and a handful of Ockenfels.

I have just gotten around to transcribing the photo's I took.
They are in no true order, those closest to my car were first...
