Geneology haas become a passion of mine. My sister and I, working in tandem, have uncovered quite a bit of family history. Our main family names are Lee, Blake, Muenks, Kaullen, Butler, Flood, Killelea, Garvey, Schmitt, and Leicht.
I am just getting started on Find a Grave as most of my time is spent doing research to fill in family tree blanks.
I have lived everywhere in the US and outside, but have been in Columbia, MO for the last 2 years.
William Edward Patrick, Jr. I just read your post about my uncle, William Edward Patrick, Jr. All I know about your Aunt Dorothy is that she married my uncle. Could you tell me a little more about your aunt? I understand she had 2 children when she married Bill, but I don't know who her previous husband was. My uncle was a decorated colonel in World War II and also after the war where he served in China and the new country of Taiwan. Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks. Barbara Giles
muenks info Hi my name is Andrew Stone, my mother was Mildred Muenks. Her father was Peter Adam Muenks. Joe Muenks was his brother. I Remember uncle Joe from the Family reunions we had when I was a kid. (he had 1 bad eye). I remember him telling me how he had lost some of his toes when he was driving a chain drive Mack truck back in the 20's. I have attached a photo I found in an old trunk while cleaning out my parents house this year. It is our relative Peter Jacob Muenks. on the back it was first spelled out as Jacob Peter Muenks, with the Jacob crossed out. his father Gerhard Muenks, went to the California gold rush with his brother and had hidden all their gold by sewing it into their buck skins so they would not get robbed. I have the Rifle they took with them. There is a gold nugget kept by our relatives' who live at the original homestead in Loose Creek Mo. (we had a reunion there one year.) There is a face book page called Muenks roots are you signed up? Maybe I'll see you at the next reunion. I seen your post on find a grave. thanks, whre can i post the photo? it did not past over to this email? Andy
