Noah and Elizabeth Hamacher death dates and locations found
In April of 2004, I recieved word back from a US GenWeb search request.Noah was the son of Peter Hammacher and Mary Bock of Ontario, Canada, and was born in Ontario, Canada.He had two wives during his lifetime.His first wife was Elizabeth Jones, daughter of John Jones and Martha Saltzberger, and she was also born in Ontario, Canada.
Now I can tell you both of their death dates and locations.
Noah died on Aug 3, 1924 age 86 years 12 days. His death record spelled his surname as Hamacker, while his burial name was spelled Haymaker, Noah.He was buried in Lake View Cemetery, South Haven, Van Buren County, Michigan.When I went to visit his gravesite over the summer, there was nothing to mark his grave.I set to work to correct that situation.There is now a cement foundation on his site, and I am in the process of purchasing a headstone for his grave.With 6 more months to pay it off, he will soon have a marked grave for the first time in over 80 years.
Now for Elizabeth Jones, his first wife, and the mother of 8 of his children.
Elizabeth Jones Hamacher died of cancer on March 5, 1897 in Meade, Huron County, Michigan.She was 54y, 1m, 25d old.
Her death record can be found in the Huron County Death Records, volume 2, Page 113, Number 148.Her death was recorded June 2, 1898.
At this time I have no idea of where she was buried.
If you know how to research that, I could surely use your help and guidance.

Noah was married a second time to Zella/Gella Peterman, daughter of Henrey and Mary Peterman of Ontario, Canada.I am currently hunting for their marriage record. Noah had two children with her, at this time I only know of one, and that is daughter Wilhelmina Beatrice Hamacher, wife of Birney J. Pratt.I have at least one labeled photo of her as a child.
A few months after Noah's death, his widow, Zella Peterman Hamacher, remarried to William Belfus on Dec 1, 1924 in Van Buren County, Michigan.Both resided in South Haven, Van Buren County, Michigan at that time.He was listed as a carpenter, she as a laundress.
