Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello from New Mexico.
I've been excavating and cataloging pioneer cemeteries for over 30 years. In the 1980s I even published a few works on the subject. Like most of you, I'm also an avid genealogist. While I enjoy finding the graves of famous people, I'm more interested in the common soldier and pioneer. Every one of them has a story.

As for genealogy, I am currently working on the surnames Trine, Minter, Dozier, Shackleford and Marquez. I'm also collecting the names and graves of the Maryland 6th Infantry.

I'm usually "on the road," so my photos come from wherever I happen to be. I've had the pleasure of meeting hundreds of wonderful people who share this love for history. Contact me if I can be of any help to you.

ABOUT TRANSFERS: I am happy to transfer anyone who is not my direct ancestor.

RE: Henry Minter
Eddie, will be more than happy to transfer once we figure this all out. No too many names Minter in this area around 1850. I did find a Henry Minger age 20 born India? on 1870 census. Not sure about that but he was in the house of Abraham Stoffer. They all can be found in local cemeteries for further identification. Believe there is a family connection? I enjoy figuring this out. Were they missionaries?

RE: Henry Minter

Did a little checking and found a daughter in same cemetery at memorial 24740494. Name is Elizabeth Minter) Bentzel. Per her death certicate she was born 1838 in Caroll Co Md. Waiting for poster to make updates and link parents. This looks promising for you.

RE: Henry Minter
Hello Eddie,

Let me see what I can find on Henry Miter that may confirm he is the person you are looking for. Not many Minter name in local cemeteries. Will update memorial with further.

RE: Friedrich Harfst and Wilhelmine
Thanks, Eddie,

I would be delighted to have you transfer them. I think that they are cousins, but I need to consult daddy's genealogy papers to be absolutely sure of which degree. We are from northern Illinois ourselves, and all the Harfsts are related, although there have never been very many of us. When I come back to Illinois next year, I plan to visit as many family graves as possible. Thanks for finding so many for me!
