Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love going through cemeteries old and new.
To me they are a place of beauty. The artistic style and beauty of many of the older grave markers, shows the true skill of the craftsman.

I am interested in genealogy. I love finding lost relatives. I am willing to help find lost loved ones in the SE Indiana area, and take photos if I can.

My family lines that I am actively researching:

Frantz Family Kith and Kin

I am directly related to the brothers Christian, Michael and Balsar (Balthasar) Frantz from Switzerland.

Both Michael and Christian are my 7G grandfathers

Father's Line
Swartz Family Kith and Kin
Ulrey Family Kith and Kin
Snell Family Kith and Kin
Fitzgerald Family Kith and Kin

Mother's line
Scharf Family Kith and Kin
Heath Family Kith and Kin
Halliday Family Kith and Kin
Page Family Kith and Kin

and many more branches yet to be discovered

I will transfer memorials upon request following the FAG guidelines.

Hi, Don!
It was great to meet you this weekend, and thanks so much for your help! If you run across any Fithens, Fithians, Brinks or Pauluses, they're probably my relatives. If I can help you somehow, please let me know :)

RE: Halliday & Extended Family
Maybe send me a reminder in the winter months to see if it is visible.

I am researching my husband's family. His mother was Ruth Barrett Casten, daughter of Samuel Borethsky (known as Barrett) and wife Bessie Frantz. Recent discoveries lead us to believe she is the daughter of Riley Frantz (1815-1879) and his wife Mary Bechtel (1818-1897).

Riley was the son of Isaac Frantz and his wife Amanda Crouse. Isaac was the son of Matthias Frantz and Elizabeth Bashore. Matthias was the son of Christian Frantz III and Anna Moyer.

Thus far I've found no proof that our Bessie Frantz is connected, just hunches based on name/place. If you can give any input it will certainly be appreciated.

Thank you so very much.

Hi Donald~

Apparently we're related, because, these are my G-G-G grandparents. Can you let me know how you're related - just curious. My father's side of the family is also buried at Spring Creek, 'Stafford'. Please keep in touch, I'm considering, even though I too am related.

RE: Wilhelm Scharf
I'm glad you're happy with the photo of Wilhelm's grave marker. I'm not related, but one of my motives for doing this is to help preserve as much as possible the old German inscriptions in the cemeteries in Northern Kentucky.
