Between The Township Line And The Waggonner Creek, in the timber
now owned by Sherman McVeigh, is the grave of Louise Steimel and her two
children. The roots of a large cedar tree have caused the stone to
topple over but it has fallen with the lettering on the top side.
The stone is not broken and the lettering is very legible on it is this
inscription "Louise, wife of H.Steimel born May 8, 1833 dead December
17, 1865 and her children Wilhelm 2 and Heinrich 1 1/2 year old" in Sherman's
abstract it shows that theSteimels at one time owned this land and five
brothers are mentioned, he says.
