Ed Griesbaum 27 Jun 2001 Letter:
"Well, I've solved the mystery of the gravesites but not to our satisfaction. On Tuesday last I went to New St Marcus Cemetery and this time the office was open. The lady there was most cooperative and after looking through five or six ancient records, she finally discovered the cards which she copied and are enclosed.
"The answer is that these persons remain buried in OLD St Marcus Cemetery because they did not have perpetual care and were abandoned. The block and grave numbers I had are the numbers in Old St Marcus. The map enclosed is of Old St Marcus.
"I then went to Old St Marcus and wandered from one end to the other. It's all grass and a few trees plus perhaps two dozen grave markers, mostly huge, still remaining. There also is a new wall incorporating maybe fifty gravestones, but none of them pertained to the Blaetz's.
"The Blaetz family remains at peace, unmarked, covered with lush grass. I guess that's the end of the story.".
