I am trying to locate the cemetery that my great great grandparents are buried. Rudolph Christ was born in Switzerland in 1828..he arrived in New York on 21 May 1856..he married Theresa Knoepfel on 28 Sep 1862 in Sauk Co., WI. She was born Jan 1840 Germany. Rudolph was a farm laborer and froze to death, his wife died prior, leaving their 7 year old son, Gustav an orphan. I would appreciate any help in locating a possible story of the snow storm, his death, and where they maybe buried. There may be another son, "Chriss Christ", but little is known of his birth, or life. Rudolph died in Waumandee, Buffalo County, Wisconsin.

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.
