Visitor Comments: Hi,
My Great, Great, Grandfather was Theodore Wienand. You have a drawing of his farm on this web site. I'd actually like to learn a little bit more about my great, great grandfather if there are any town records from the mid-1800's when he was a resident.

Admin Reply: Joe, I will email you direct.

Visitor Comments: Thought you might like to know that my grandfather, Edward EVERETT Putney was on the Chatsworth train. He survived but his new bride, Lillian L Putney did not. They were leaving on theirhoneymoon. My grandfather remarried twice after that, with his last wife being my grandmother, Belva Whetzel. We have never known his first wife's name until I found your site. Thank you so very much. We are not related by blood but I feel a strong connection to Lillian.
Admin Reply: Thank you Marilyn. I am so glad the my site helped you. That's why I do it! Site Manager Mary Runyon Hanshew

Visitor Comments: I traveled thru Chatsworth last June. Mr Great, Great Grandfather moved there in 1866 and died in 1898. He and his 1st and 2nd wife are buried in the Chatsworth Cemetery. His name is Ethan A. Jackson. I found his head stone after much searching. His son, Henry Jackson, my Great grandfather is supposed to be buried there with his wife Nettie. I could not find them. He died in 1926. He did not live there long. He came back to be buried there. Ethan Jackson ran a hardware and tinnery? Ethan Jackson is located along the central east/west lane toward the middle of the cemetery. I don't know if there is a plot map to cemetary? Henry and Nettie were Baptist. Just interested anyone may have some more information. Dale

Visitor Comments: Whatasite!!!! Terrific history!!!
mom's Margaretha Ringeisen (b. 1850 Germany) and spouse John Close (b ~1847 OH, "engineer") were living in Chatsworth in 1870 census. they were married in Iroquois Co. (Margaretha's folks lived in Gilman) in Sept 1869. Dau Eva Cather548pine born Sept 1870. Next I know 1880 census Margaretha is widow living near her brother in Gilman. Eva is 8. I know nothing, as the German church records in Gilman are missing. Assume John Close must have died shortly after marriage. Have never found anything in cemeteries or records. Saw that there was a fire in 1871. Engineer-- train? Any thoughts welcome. You have done an incredible job of telling Chatsworth's story!!! Sincerely, Jeannie
