Bio and Links
Bio Photo Since I was a young girl I had a desire to know about my ancestors. I feel blessed to have known two great grandmothers, my grandparents and many other family relatives ~ many stories of which have been shared. However, it wasn't until ten years ago that my "desire" became a "passion". My daughter had a school project in which she needed to write about an ancestor who immigrated to America. She chose her great, great grandmother, Louise Mondl, and her journey from the Czech Republic to New York. At this point it became evident to me that I needed to research and preserve my family roots for not only my children, and today's generation, but those to come.

Through research I have learned so much about my ancestors ~ it is not just names and dates written on paper or chiseled in stone, but who they were, where and how they lived and the love and hardships they endured. I have, through Find-A-Grave, made new family connections and decided to add some of my family.

Researching: Spellman/Mullen/Ford (Ireland/USA); Dorling (Germany/USA) Mondl (Bavaria/CZ/USA); Haley/Hudson (PA/NJ); Horn/Horne (PA); Farrier/Ferrier (Ireland/USA); McCartney (DE/PA); Musgrove/Hibberd/Horn (PA); Bonsall (England/USA); Meyer/Joerg/ Bellmund/ Baxmann (Germany/USA); Bucher (Switz/USA; Baltes Germany/PA); McLaughlin (Ireland, NJ); Reilly/Riley (Ireland, PA)

To end... I simply would like to say "to those who came before… you are remembered and loved".

Betsy Rangel
The Mondl's
Hello. My name is Betsy Weber Rangel. I notice that you have siblings Peter (1774), Josephus (1778), Jacobus (1780) Johannes (1788). There was a sister also in this family, her name was Appollonia Mondl (1785-1839). She married a ancestor of mine, Martin Weber. Appollonia died in the village of Birkenhaid #8(Brezova Lada, Czech Republic.
If you need any more information on her family please don't hesitate to contact me at

James Riley
James Riley is tied to Charles Thomas Reilly and Loretta Riley. I don't believe this is the correct James Riley. If you look at when he died Charles would only be 3 years old and Loretta would only be 6 years old. All of the stories I have heard from my Dad (John T. Reilly) is that Grandpa (Charles Reilly) was the only one that went into the orphanage. I don't know if you have a connection with the Reilly family or not. I would be very interested in where you got this information. I am working on a family tree on Ancestry that is public.
I just joined this site to leave you a message.
If you are who I think you are you may still have my personal email. If so please email me.

John GuitonDupuy 1825
Hi, St. Mary's Cemetery, you added a general photo of the area for John G. Dupuy, was there a single headstone for him, or most likely too old to be there since 1825. I am researching this John. He was a chef in Philadelphia. Thank you, Jane

John G. Dupuy 1825
Hi, you have placed a cemetery photo on the post of John Guiton Dupuy. Did you by chance come across that one alone to take a picture? Researching this line. He was a chef in Philadelphia. Thank you, Jane

Theresia Nigl
In the page on Johann Wallisch, you wrote that Thelka (Thekla) Wallisch, daughter of Johann Wallisch & Theresia Nigl, was your "third great grandmother".

I have quite a lot of info on the Nigl ancestors. Please contact me if you are interested.

# 25906817 Sophie Meyer
This is about # 25906817 Sophie Meyer. I have her name with my great grandparents Charles and Ella Sudbrink on two seperate cruises on Ancestry. Once with Ella to Bermuda in 1924 and once with Charles and Ella to Europe in 1938. My 3x great grandfather Friedrich Wilhelm Meyer changed his name to Sudbrink when he married a Sudbrink woman, so my great grandfather's cousins would be Meyers. His father was Carl Heinrich Meyer. They lived in Rahden. I am trying to find if there is a link between them. It is possible they were just friends. I see you have her parents names, may I ask where you got their names and do you know what part of Germany they were from? Any more info would be appreciated. Thank you for her memorial and the info on it. Barbara Watts
