Bio and Links
Bio Photo I spend my free time doing genealogy & caring for old family photos. I also collect antique books, tintypes, ambrotypes and daguerreotypes.

These are my main surnames of interest- please contact me to exchange info/photos: Mayville, Diebold, Star[c]k, Walsh, Hurst, Tice, Walter, Emmerich, Hess, Hagemann, Brandmueller, and Liebenow, among many others. I have also worked extensively on documenting in Wisconsin the entire lineage of Starck (& the many related families!) emigrants from the city of Orenhofen, region of Trier, Germany.

Check out my Brick Walls. Maybe you can help!


Please credit me if using my photos elsewhere!! This includes, your personal genealogy page, etc. I don't mind if you use my photos, just please cite your source!

Please submit any additions, corrections or transfer requests via the "edit" tab on each individual memorial.

I have no problem transferring as long as they are not my family; however, I do not support "memorial collectors." The goal of find-a-grave is not to "own" memorials for each member of your family, but to make sure each memorial is as accurate as possible.


My most meaningful work on Find-a-grave are the cemeteries I have fully photographed / transcribed. These cemeteries are special as I am related to many buried there:

-Lawrence/Cady Cemetery (Brown Co., WI 2006-07)
-Saint Louis Catholic Cemetery (Caledonia, WI 2009-10)
-Fairview Cemetery (Greenleaf, WI, 2010)
-St. James Catholic Cemetery (Oak Creek, WI 2010)
-Saint Mary of the Lake Catholic Cemetery (Westport, WI, 2012)

and the following portions of Resurrection Cemetery in Madison, WI:
Section 1, Blocks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7 (2012-13)
Section 3, Blocks 11, 12, 13, 21, 22, 23, 31, 32, 33 & 42 (2013-14)
Section 4, Blocks 11, 12, 13, 21 & 22 (2014)

I have photographed the following but haven't uploaded yet:
Section 2, Blocks 5, 6, & 7 (2014)
Section 5 (2014)
Section 6 (2014)
Section 8 (2014)


**Tips for the Beginner Genealogist**


*If you volunteer on this site but decide that you do not want to maintain your memorials anymore, PLEASE transfer your records to an active contributor who is willing & able to manage your memorials. This avoids a lot of hassle and headache to any who wish to edit your memorials in some way down the road.

If you have found a contributor willing to maintain your memorials, email with your contributor ID # as well as the ID # of the person taking over for you. I am one of many contributors who are willing to maintain memorials if necessary, so please contact me to discuss.

RE: Waldvogels
Hi Jade, No I have to say I am not related to the Waldvogels or Kerns. If you are related to them I can transfer them to you.

I do as much research on the person as I can find as that will always help the next person. I am happy to do just that as it may bring down the "ole Brick Wall".......Peace.....Lawrence

RE: Blankenheims
Hi Jade
Yeah I goofed on which Peter I was linked to at the time. It was Henry's brother not his son. I'll try again.

Sorry I didn't respond but I didn't see your message until today. Thanks for being alert. Steve

Hoven graves in Resuection Cemetery
Thank you for posting the pictures of the graves of John and Adelheide Hoven. I had posted the birth year for John Hoven taken from his Naturalization record. I changed the memorial date to go with the gravestone inscribed year, since it jibes more with the data in his obit.
Thank you for the heads-up on the date and again for all the photographs you are contributing taken at this cemetery.
