Burial Place

Henry and Charlotte's burial place is in the Bouef Lutheran Church cemetery in New Haven, MO. And Henry's father Franz Gerdes is also buried there, but his tombstone is more obscure and harder to find. I found it by accident when I was a teenager. Franz was born in 1801 and died in 1880 according to the tombstone.
