Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 working at it. It has been fun.

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 visited Wisconsin for 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.

Also, I can only find one Cedar Lawn Memorial Cemetery in the San Jose area. It is listed as being in both Fremont and Milpitas since is is on the border of these cities.

RE: Emil De Laere
Well you might try calling the cemetery and working through the search with them. I asked them to look for him using his wife's maiden name with no luck. According to Find a Grave she is buried in Los Angeles. The records are not always that good and may be in one of several areas anything from a book to file cards. Rarely have I found a cemetery with a computer based database.

Also, I have run into a situation at this cemetery where they would do a cremation and the remains would be sent to the mortuary for disposition. So you might want to call the mortuary to see if they know what the situation was at that time. Also, they may have the actual grave location.

You're welcome for the photo. I took several more pictures, if you're interested. Thanks for being my very first "volunteer photo taken"!

RE: Christopher Mackey
Gloria: There is another grave at St. Joseph that is also absent a marker and I'm hoping that one will also be placed there in the next few months. My late uncle owned a local funeral home and it was two YEARS before his family could decide, purchase, and have a marker placed on his remains. I've been doing Find-A-Graves for over five years and every opportunity has a different wrinkle to it. No matter what, it's always my honor and privilege to help someone such as you.

RE: Bense monument
Yes, it is flat River Bottom land. the bluffs in the distance are in Missouri, about 3.5 miles west.

Sorry I didn't see your request for the "Jostes" buried there. You can see one of their tombstones behind the metal heart shaped flower holder and there are several along the drive, further back behind Fritz & Carrie's tombstone. When I visit again I will try to remember to photograph them.
