About this Article
Virginia Weidner Mueller Raupp didn't have to look far for her family tree. One walk through the historic St. Mary Cemetery, adjacent to St. Mary Church in Buffalo Grove, provided her with all of her research. Raupp, who died Dec. 2 at 89, was the granddaughter of one of the first families in Buffalo, Pancratz and Mary Weidner, who came to the U.S. from Germany in 1851.
