Find A Grave Burial Record [7]

Note that Find a Grave shows her month of death as October, but according to her Iowa death certificate, it was actually December.

Should be fixed soon.

Fischler-93 and Fischler-46 appear to represent the same person because: These two Anna Elisabeth Fischler Morkals are a match for birth and death date, both came from Grimm, Russia, same husband. Once you approve this merge, I'm happy to do the actual merging. If you have any questions, please let me know.
