A little update on this woman.  She was my ancestor and her first name was EMILY not Anna.  She is buried in Beaver Cemetery town of Beaver Clark County Wisconsin.

Harvey, Thanks for the information. I have updated the town of Beaver Cemetery index to indicate her burial there. Her given name must have been Anna Emily, but apparently she went by Emily? Do you have the first name for your ggg-grandfather, Mr. Slocum? Also, do you have her parent's names? I see the obituary just said Foster.  Stan Schwarze
