Why is Christena (Fike) Weimer Buried in Idaho?
Christena (Fike) Weimer (1827-1899) is my father's mother's mother's father's mother, and she is usually listed in family trees as Dianah Fike (although all of the Census records and grave markers list her as Christena--I'm fairly sure that most of the confusion stems from the listing in the Hochstetler book, but that's a subject for another post).
I'm curious about how she ended up being buried in Idaho when she and Jacob Weimer (1825-1905) lived in West Virginia and Virginia, and Jacob was buried in West Virginia six years later.
My guess is that she was on her way to visit her children who had moved to Washington, died along the way, and was buried where she died.
Does anyone have more specific information about what happened?Thanks,
