Bio and Links
Family historian, micropaleontologist, hiker, retired teacher among other things. Thanks to all who posted memorials and photos useful in my family tree, and made memorials of closer family members. I do not "own" my memorials and photos, your non-commercial use for family purposes is fine with me, credit is appreciated in your trees, histories and websites. Prohibited: commercial use unless you have my written permission.

Now working on Strausbaugh family tree. NEED HELP: looking for parents of Lucy Ann Elizabeth Strausbaugh, wife of Melchior Sachs. Married 1849 March 16 in Gettysburg, non-Cathlic rite. Born in or near Gettsyburg, PA about 1829. NOT Lucy Ann the daughter of George Strausbaugh and Elizabeth Bittinger, that Lucy Ann married Joseph Warner and stayed in Pennsylvania instead of moving to Illinois. Anyone knowing her parents names please contact me.

RE: Ila Mae Brubaker Rogero
I'm happy to transfer Ila to you, no mater how distant. As for The Wrights - wrong part of the county for mine. They are my brick wall.

Andersen's in Fairmount-Willow Spirngs Cemetery
Hi, I took photos of Anne and Christian Andersen's grave markers. I also found a marker for Alice Lucille Andersen. I created the memorial and included the photo for her also. I also found out that Ruth and Gladys Andersen are also buried in the same lot, but they do not have markers. Hope this helps. bhd

Magdalena Flanigan in St. Joseph
I took a few different shots of the stone. I lightened the close-up so the inscription can be read. If you click open the photo, I added the full inscription to the photo. There are overlapping branches that canopy this stone and I do not believe sunlight ever reaches it, regardless of the time of day. Hope these pics help, Happy Hunting!

RE: Rufus Mitchell

I am more than willing to transfer to a family member who wants to keep the memorials of their family - just say the word. Outside of that, I am willing to make any additions or corrections that you would like to see with the memorial. Kay

You are very welcome. Please feel free to capture the photo and use in any way you wish for your family records or otherwise. That is a very beautiful little cemetery and a wonderful resting place for your family.
