Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got the genealogy bug when my great-aunt's grandson sent me a photo of my 2nd great-grandparents on their 50th wedding anniversary with the entire family. Only 4 people in the photo were identified. Since that time I have contacted relatives I did not know I had. I have also been able to identify everyone in the photo now. I have done research not only on my surname but grandparents, 2nd great-grandparents on both sides. I especially love doing research on my mother's parents because Parke County has a great website. I am at a stand-still on my own surname as I don't know exactly where in Prussia my 2nd great-grandfather was born. I always love to get in contact with new "cousins".

RE: Hubert Gilles
Hi, I checked all the Calvary photo requests on the Archdiocese of Milwaukee's database ("") before I went to the cemetery yesterday. Hubert, Nora and Ludwig are NOT listed on this database. Willy and Louis are.

If you know they really are there, then I suggest you contact Holy Cross Cemetery in Milwaukee, where all of Calvary's records are kept. Ask them about your family.

FYI. Calvary is the oldest Catholic cemetery (with over 32,000 burials) in Milwaukee, dating to 1867. As such, many people do not have stones, or the stones have disappeared, or the stones are illegible. We spent close to 2 hrs. yesterday looking for some of the photo requests. We only found one person who died in 2000 before giving up.

Good luck in finding your relatives.

The fact

RE: Elizabeth Miller at Denman Cemetery

Did you remove my Grandmother's info from my site? Elizabeth Bell Mitchell Miller is my Grandmother on my dad's mother's side of the family. Robert Mitchell was my Cousin Marilyn's father. I noticed Elizabeth's info is no longer on my site.

As far as checking to see if there is something already out, I probably did check at the time I made it but nothing came up.

Since Elizabeth is my family member, I would ask that you transfer her info to me.

Yes, I didn't notice that at first. I was researching the other husband.

RE: parents of Lola Payton Ferguson
Hello Jim, I am just trying to keep in touch regarding the Adams cemetery and Lola Nancy PAYTON Ferguson. Have you been able to compete your research on Adams Cemetery? I was unable to travel to Indiana this year due to back surgery, so I still do not know if Lola's headstone is still buried or if it has been uncovered. Where you able to travel to Adams Cemetery this year?
