The Weiss Family
Vine Street Hill Cemetery

William J. Weiss was married to Ida L. Reum Weiss who is buried in the Foertmeyer/Wagner/Reum plot in Section 39 of Spring Grove Cemetery, which is exactly one mile driving distance away from Vine Street Hill Cemetery. William died in 1909 and Ida in 1917. Why Ida was not laid to rest next to her husband in Vine Street Hill is not known. Why he was not laid to rest in the Spring Grove plot to await Ida is likewise not known.
William J. Weiss

Husband of Ida L. Reum Weiss

Section 4 Lot 8 Space 4

The Weiss plot contains eleven individuals, including William J. Weiss. The only two individual markers are "Mother" and "Father" which belong to William's mother and father, Margaret Weiss and Heinrich G. Weiss. There is, however, an impressive monument in the plot, around which are buried all eleven people in a sixteen foot by sixteen foot area. Below the cemetery information there are photos included.

Although the following members of the Weiss family are buried at Spring Grove, they are not buried with Ida Weiss, daughter of Bertha Foertmeyer Reum, so I will place them on this page with the main Weiss family plot in Vine Street Hill Cemetery.
