Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a genealogy enthusiast, a Civil War & U.S. military history buff and have always had a fascination with cemeteries. I'm also a USAF veteran of the Persian Gulf War and a second generation hillbilly (Kentucky).

I really enjoy being a Photo Volunteer and have found the Find-A-Grave experience to be very rewarding! 99.999% of the folks are very helpful and pleasant, but boy... I have run into a few square doughnuts out there!

My current Find-A-Grave projects are locating graves and updating existing memorials for members of two of my great-great-grandfather's Civil War regiments (23rd Kentucky and 28th Ohio Infantries, both Union). I appreciate all of the cooperation I'm receiving from my fellow gravers! I'm also helping to clean up the "Autograver" mess at Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Most of my memorials are family, but I do enter military veterans and other graves that may catch my eye from time to time. If I have a memorial of a relative or friend of yours, send me a transfer request by way of a SAC. I don't follow FAG's transfer guidelines as if they were the Ten Commandments like some folks do. If you have ever refused to transfer the memorial of a relative to someone - shame on you. That's just plain mean.

Please feel free to use my grave marker photos for your personal use.

Thanks Rob for posting the picture of my gggg grandfather's headstone. I have his b- date but have not located his death. I think it was about 1879-1880. I too love history as does my 15 yr. old grandson. My youngest son was in the Marines & served 2 tours in Iraq. Congrats to you both. I also was able to prove my dad's side (my maiden name) back to 1810 & qualify as being part of the 1st families of Hamilton County. Without people like you doing the work you do we would not be able to find our family histories. Thank you again. Pam- Cincinnati

Thank you!
Thanks, Rob. I assume there was no stone for Mary, etc.--just an area? I appreciate your going out there to investigate! Best regards.

RE: Mary Pesenti @ Evergreen
Thanks so much! I'm trying to find out more about Avery Stoddard, who was my 4th great grandfather. I read in his pension papers that he died 17 Jan 1864, so either that date is wrong or he wasn't buried until February. Looking forward to the pics. Sarah Ann Stoddard (widow of Avery) should have some stone(s) because there was a receipt for them in Avery's pension papers.

Helena Menzel Grossman
Sorry, my finger slipped last time. The second photo posted of this woman (Helena Menzel Grossman #22560526) looks much much older than 26 yrs old (the age when she died). Are you sure this 2nd photo is of Helena M. Grossman who was married to Dr. Fred A. Grossman? I understand that Helena's sister, Mary J. Grossman-Walker helped care for Helena's two children after she died.
Thanks for all your postings of memorials for the Grueninger and Grossman family members. You and I share Gottfried and Katherina Dorothea Hagele as ancestors. I descend from their daughter, Maria Grueninger who came to America and upon settling in Lockland, Hamilton Co., OH, married Adam Schwarz. Thanks, Mary

George Weller
Hi Rob! We are 3rd cousins. I, too, am descended from the Breeses and Wellers - my great-grandfather is Francis Breese, Ada's brother.

I would like to compare info, because my data on George Weller does not agree with yours. I have him as being born circa 1800 in Hanover, Germany, and dying in Chicago in 1864. I have his wife as Rachel Faust, born in PA about 1808 and dying in Chicago on 18 Mar 1870. I haven't been able to trace either line back from these two.

I'm on Ancestry, so if you would like to peruse my family tree, feel free. I've traced the Breeses (with a lot of help from our Canadian cousins) back to about 1750 in Norfolk, England.
