Singstoeg, Ferdinand (1838 - 1919)
Sarah, I went back to the old Colby Phonograph and Singstoeg is the way it is spelled there. I will add Singstock to the surnames list for the obituary so that anyone searching on the Singstock name will find this obit.

I was looking at this page from the Clark County genealogy and am sending a picture of the gravesite at Zion Cemetery in Readfield. Online info about this cemetery is difficult to find when you look up Waupaca County because there are two Zion Cemeteries and this one is often omitted. Funny, since it is right across the street from Zion Lutheran Church. Almost always, I have seen the name spelled as SENGSTOCK as it is on the gravestone. However, none of the children ever spelled their names with an “E”, always with an “I” as SINGSTOCK. I believe his daughter was married to the Tesmer and land that he owned in Clark County eventually became Tesmer’s. His son Herman and wife Lena lived in Green Grove area and I thought he had a son, William, and they were buried at St Paul’s Lutheran Church in Green Grove. That last line does not agree with all my records, but I remember the three of them visiting us in the Pittsville, WI area in the 1950’s and about 2000 my Mother and I visited the church and saw a gravestone for William. Lena lived to be well over 100 at a Health care place in Neillsville. I am Dennis Singstock, son of Albert, son of Leo, son of Ferdinand.
