Hello Kim,
Thanks so much for going to the cemetery. Yes, please send me photo of where Lucy (Jennie Harrett) Winters should be buried. Email address

Could I please pay you for your trips and also ask of you to make a visit to the Waukesha County Museum to look to see if any record for Graham Winters?

Regarding where Graham Winters may be buried: County Farm

Records -
All known early record books for the cemetery, previously held by Northview Home, have been transferred to the Waukesha County Museum. Northview Home, later called Linden Grove, is located at N1 W25042 Northview Road, Waukesha, WI 53188.

At the Waukesha County Museum there are M-841 County Records, Waukesha County Asylum for Chronic Insane and County Home. Cemetery Records 1881-1923, 1942, 1951. Transcript available. The first 75 burials listed in this register had numbered tombstones and were moved in 1904-1905 from the Vernon cemetery. Also, "Study of Northview Cemetery," Donald J. Eggum, Waukesha County Coroner, October 17, 1984. This includes a list of burials, 1883-1936. "Historical & Site Investigation of Northview Home Cemetery, Waukesha County, Wisconsin, "Foth & Van Dyke of Milwaukee, Inc., December 1983. This includes a list of burials 1881-1951. A plat of the cemetery is also available.

Graham Winters is not listed in these lists. Missing 1937.

On Graham's death certificate - The informant was L.A Peters. He was Superindentant of Waukesha County Asylum for Chronic Insane and County Farm.

No date on this info below – don’t know how long Mr and Mrs Peters were Superintendant and Matron. On January 29, 1920, Mr. and Mrs. L.A. Peters were elected to the offices of superintendent and matron. Superintendent and Mrs. Peters assumed their duties February 5, 1920; positions they still hold.

There possibly are records available in Wisconsin to track when Graham was registered at Waukesha County Asylum for Chronic Insane and County Home. Graham may have had dementia or just poor.

Cemetery records for 1937 not online. Cemetery records: 1881-1923, 1942, 1951 and coroners list only goes to 1936. Wonder if coroner list for 1937 available at the museum?

Thanks again,
