Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Wendy's family includes the surnames: Allerton, Burow, Clark, Cushman, Dawson, Dumerce, Eaton, Johnson, Jones, Judkins, Kraft, Miller, Moore, Pearcy, Priest, Rahn, Robideaux (aka Robidoux), Smart, Spencer, Stevens, Stewart, Walker, Weins.

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

Any photos I post on Find a Grave are intended to be used. Please feel free to use the photos for your personal needs or documentation.

RE: Maria Bohnen
Thanks for the information regarding Maria Thielen Bohnen. For now, I am going to keep 1866 as her birth date as I believe The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has the best information.

Thanks again,
Sheila S

Maria Bohnen
Are you related to Maria Thielen Bohnen? I was wondering if you have other information stating Maria Thielen Bohnen's birth date? I know it says 1869 on the gravestone, however, that is not the correct birth date. Maria Thielen Bohnen was my great great aunt. Other family members state she was born in 1867. However, I found this: Anna Maria (Thielen) Bohnen was born 14 Sep 1866 in Berscheid, Trier, Germany to Dominic Thielen & Elisabetha (Hitzges) Thielen from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am positive this information is correct as it is her correct birth month and day & the parents are right. Also, it is the correct area where many of the Thielen children were born in the Bersheid/Neuerburg area of Germany.

Thank you so much for taking the time to get a picture of James L Catsantone's headstone for me. It's so wonderful to have people like you that take the time to do this for total strangers. You are so appreciated.
