John Henry Ufkes

death certificate


John's certificate lists the maiden name of his wife, but does not provide any information on his mother. The burial place is listed as the "German Cemetery." If the cemetery had not been known further research would have been done to determine what cemetery this actually is. There are several cemeteries in Hancock County, Illinois that would qualify as "German" cemeteries. This document is referring to Immanuel Lutheran Cemetery south of Carthage, Illinois.

The record also indicates that John had lived in Illinois 55 years. In this case that number is in agreement with his 1869 immigration date obtained from passenger lists.

John (Johann) is my great-great-grandfather.
