Hello. Wendy and I live in the Memphis area. |
My career in the Marine Corps landed us here. After retiring from the Corps, we settled and are building the next chapter of our lives. Our children and grandchildren remain our first love, but we do have a passion for genealogy and history.
I am an avid military researcher and collector, and Wendy is a member of the Mayflower Society, the Daughters of the American Revolution, and the Daughters of Union Veterans.
In between our full time jobs, we enjoy researching and sharing our discoveries. We have enjoyed the richness and bounty our country has to offer largely due to the work and sacrifice of our ancestors. Thus as a way to honor them, we strive to preserve the history of their journeys. Participating in organizations such as Find A Grave allows us to do just that.
Bruce's family includes the surnames: Doeller, Felthes, Gumtow, Hachman, Hechley, Keis, Koppy, Linz, Paterlick, Probst, Ringloff, Salzl, Schmidt, Streitz, Urban, Wiener.

If you have information about any of our families we would love to hear from you. Let's trade stories.

Bruce and Wendy,
Thank you so much for the grave marker photos of the two Francis Tracys in Memphis National Cemetery. I have Tracy family buried there and noticed these and wondered about them.
When you posted the marker pictures and I saw that they were military markers but had no information other than unit/state, I called the cemetery to see if I could link them to their families... but could only get a recording. I called the VA - just recordings, even tried to email them but they wouldn't send it without their SS number - Civil War soldiers did not have SS numbers to my knowledge.
To make a long story short - I searched for them for two days, found their units and a little about their service. I was able to link the one from Kansas to some of his family. He and his wife came from Ireland - yet he fought and died for our country. I couldn't find the other's family but hopefully if someone is looking for him they will be able to find him with the information I put on his memorial. I wonder how many might have searched for them in years past. These young service men deserve to be remembered.
This is a tender subject for me. My g.g.uncle died in Andersonville Prison during the Civil War and was buried in an 'unknown' grave. Just last June my cousin and I were able to get a memorial marker for him and have a memorial service in his hometown. Thanks again for the marker pictures!!

Thank you for the offer of a tombstone photo for Sgt Andrew Bushong's Memorial# 108619625, in the Memphis National Cemetery.
Yes, please, a stone photo for an Unknown, would be better than what he has. As least he deserves one.
|Brian Stavrum||RE: Franklin Niebolte|
I am actually not sure. I have his obit and it doesn't say where he is buried.

Bruce and Wendy, Thank you so much for the grave photos of Edward N and Agnes Tracy in Memphis National Cemetery, and especially for finding Edward's grave and sending me the correct plot location. I really appreciate the extra effort on your part. Their grandchildren live in California and would like to go by their graves when they are visiting here.
