Thanks so very much. I appreciate all your time and information. Peter LaFlex was my great grandfather. He was born 23 March 1855 in Cornwall, Ontario, Canada and died 15 Feb 1942 in Owen, Clark, Wisconsin. He married Colista Dolph on 30 May 1877 in Colby, Clark, Wisconsin. She was born 5 Feb 1856 in New York and died 4 Feb 1941 in Withee, Wisconsin. They had 12 Children. I have still been unable to locate any information on where Peters mother is buried. She was Ellen (Taillon)LaFlex born about 1825 in Cornwall, Ontario, Canada and died 3 October 1903 in Clark County, Wisconsin. I have her only as Ellen, Hellen but her actual name nay have been Isabella (Taillon)LaFlex. If anyone has any information on Ellen I would appreciate hearing from them. Thanks so much. Take care and Happy Holidays. Darlene Poppe
