My quest to learn more about my ancestors began as a young teenager. My great-grandmother had a book about her Drinkard family, which was written by her first cousin. It was so interesting I was insired to learn more about my other ancestors. Some lines I knew very little about. The journey has gone on over 40 years and I am still at it.
Along the way, I also come across records for people not related. I enjoy sharing my family and other records at Find A Grave. It is such a great website!
This photo was taken when I went to an Adams Family Reunion in 2005. Our ancestors, Henry Adams and Margaretha Misslich, immigrated from Germany in 1848 and settled in Waukesha County, Wisconsin. Henry was born in 1818 at Enzen, Zuelpich, Rhineland, Germany.
Please use the 'Edit' tab for additions, corrections and transfer requests. Thank you.
The main lines I am researching are Gove, Hengell, Stowell, Drinkard, Kaus, Jostes, Collins and Vilmur.
RE: Johnsons in Brookfield, MA I completed the edits for Mary A. Johnson. I located her death in the Brookfield records - however the date was Aug 1, 1864, not 1863. Age recorded as 1 year, 9 months and 9 days. Thank you for your input - one more mystery burial solved!
Johnsons in Brookfield, MA I have processed your edits concerning the Johnson family in Brookfield, MA *except* for the items regarding Mary Johnson,#64647890 who you say died in 1863. There is no stone for her, and I need some evidence that she is actually buried there. Many of the burials in Brookfield were dumped there from an unverified source, so I have to be careful.

RE: Emma Hornbeck You are welcome. If at anytime someone wants to mark her grave Garland Brook has a very simple marker for a few hundred dollars. It is a small square of stone with a brass flower holder on top or you can place a brass plaque. Either one will have her name and dates.
Schoenberger Thank you for the memorial page for Marjorie Schoenberger. Sidney was my grandfather. My grandmother died when I was a year old so Marjorie raised me and I was very close with her. Thanks again for the memorial page.
