Bio and Links
Bio Photo My quest to learn more about my ancestors began as a teenager. My great-grandmother had a book about her Drinkard family, which was written by her first cousin. It was so interesting I was inspired 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.

W. K. and Katie Melton (Crown Hill Cemetery)
Hello Gloria,

You are very welcome.

Thanks for letting me know that I put the wrong photos on the Melton family’s memorials. I have fixed it.

RE: Udelhofen
Sorry about the tombstone photo of Charlotte. Her tombstone had dirt and grass on it that I tried to remove. If I get a chance, I'll go back and shoot it again after the rain cleans it and before the grass grows back over it.

RE: Wilhelm
Not sure if our Wilhelms are related. Wilhelm is german for William so it's a pretty common name. My Wilhelms are from Germany and came here around the time of the revolution as one or two fought for the patriots--as best as I can tell. I'm not sure that my Wilhelms made it to Nebraska either. If you find a link to mine, will you let me know? I'll do the same for you. Thanks.

FYI: I've just started working in this cemetery and hopefully can find who you are looking for...suppose to rain for next few days so won't be going over right away.

RE: Edward Neal Willson
I removed the incorrect picture. I probably have the correct one for but will have to search for it. I have deleted all of the pictures from my computer but have them backed up to CDs. Remind me again later when I have had time to search.

RE: Photo Error
Iva Pearl is a daughter of Cal Noland Smallwood. No mistake.

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.
