Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy spending free time in cemeteries and doing genealogy. I also collect antique books and photographs of all varieties.

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.

Check out my Brick Walls. Maybe you can help?

*My grandpa Mayville (1931 - 2015)
*My cousin Sydney (2000-2016)


-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 add memorials one at a time (not in mass uploads as some do) in an effort to increase accuracy, but no one is perfect.

-I have no problem transferring as long as they are not my family; however, I do not support "memorial collectors." The goal of F-A-G 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 because (in most cases) 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)

& the following portions of Resurrection Cemetery in Madison, WI:
Section 1, Blocks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7 (2012-13)
Section 2, Blocks 5, 6, & 7 (2014)
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 1, 2, 3 & 4 (2015)
Section 5 (2014)
Section 6 (2014)
Section 8 (2014)

Agnes McGinnis
Hi Jade,
Would you please transfer Agnes McGinnis (96288482) to my care(47945181)? She's my wifes' aunt and I've been maintaining the rest of her family.
Also, any chance you've seen her husband lying around near her? ;-)
Please let me know.

RE: Catharine & Peter Grimm
Hi Jade, I may have gotten these dates long ago from a family member. I don't have it in my notes. So it's ok not to update their memorials until I can find that info.

RE: Nielsens
I was researching their daughter Nellie Runnoe. Using, the census reports verify family of Nellie, her parents along with siblings. I have submitted 'edit links' for her siblings as well that are awaiting authorization.
Thank you

Thank you for taking and uploading the pictures for his memorial. Your time and effort is appreciated. Wow, no snow on the ground!
Added by Jerry Stremcha on Dec 21, 2015 4:40 AM
Thank you
Confirmed Memorial# 111116942 is the correct one, and have linked wife & sons to him. Working on getting Memorial# 111116942 updated further, and will eventually delete Memorial# 90276155, after Roselawn confirmed no burial there. Thanks for alerting me!

RE: Christian Baum
No worries, I just thought I'd bring it to your attention is all. If you'd ever like a transfer of memorials, all you have to do is ask, I don't mind, as long as they're not my immediate family, which most aren't. Regards, Nadeen

RE: Donna Hetzel #9466213
Hi Jade,

Sorry, I'm not related to the Hetzels.

I'm working on photographing all of Almond. I actually went there today to take more photos (mid-forties in December is a heat wave in Wisconsin). Watch for more photos in the next week or so.

Take care!
