Looking for any info that might pertain to BARNARD. My grandmother, Hazel Marie Barnard, was born in Marathon City, Feb 2, 1907, according to a family bible. The family was from Mich and returned there after her birth. Apparently there is not a birth record at the clerk's office. Her parents were William Barnard and Annie Laurie (Atkins) Barnard. Would there be records of Barnards or Atkins in the Marathon area?

Thank you so much for your time. Linda Titze

I am trying to locate the place and date of death of Lydia (nee Fritz) Moser. She was born in Grunmettstetten, Germany in 1859. Daughter of George and Anna Schaefer Fritz. She came to America in 1889 with her brother Anton Fritz and Sister Barbara Fritz. They settled in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. On July 15,1890 she married George Moser of Sheboygan. They lived here unitl 1896 and moved up in the Wausau area.

She died between 1896 and 1905. As the 1905 Wis State Census shows that George was living in the town of Marathon and he is listed as a widower with three sons George, Louis and Joseph Moser. I checked the Marathon County Court House and there is no death certificate listed for Lydia Moser. Lydia and George were Catholic so they had to belong to a catholic church in the town of Marathon. I was told that Lydia was buried in a woods up north by a niece. Can anyone tell me where she is buried or when she died or possibly the name of the Catholic Church in that area where they would have belonged.
