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 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.

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.

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.

I am going into Garland Brook after Christmas. If her grave is marked they will help me find it. I will let you know. Happy Holidays.

RE: Marjorie Schoenberger
Hi Gloria -

For what it's worth - I did a little more digging into the cemetery records and found that Sydney was originally buried in Lake Lawn Park cemetery, but was transferred into Metairie Cemetery in 1980. He is buried in a crypt right next to Marjorie.
I should be able to get a photo within the next week or two.

RE: Marjorie Schoenberger
Hi Gloria -

Thank you for your note.
The only link I provided was a general link to Metairie Cemetery where you could post a photo request. I did not send you any link directed to any individual.

That said, I have confirmed that Marjorie R. Schoenberger was buried on November 5, 1997 in Metairie Cemetery. She is not buried in Lake Lawn Park Cemetery. These two cemeteries are located right next to each other and their names are often confused, even in obituary notices.

RE: Edwin Gentz
Hi Gloria,

Even though the spelling is different that is the only Louisa Cemetery in West Point Township, Stephenson County, Illinois. I grew up in the area so I am very familiar with the location.
I'm sorry that I couldn't locate Edwin. I found other Gentz headstones, but none for Edwin. Those headstones are already pictured on the Louisa Cemetery site on Find A Grave. I searched the entire cemetery but came up empty handed.
If I get a chance I will search again and let you know if I come up with anything.
