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)

RE: Lester Dalton

Hi Jade, Lester's wife's name was Lillie Meeks. Their children were Cranford Dalton, L. T. Dalton, Young Dalton, Ruth Dalton, Myrtle Dalton, Vassie Dalton, & Francine Dalton, all born in Homer, Banks, Co., GA. You should look into being a professional genealogist. Thank you for all of your help, much appreciated. Keep up the great work.

RE: Lester Dalton

Thank you Jade. You're doing a fine job. I live in Indiana, but my mom was Lester & Lillie's youngest daughter.

RE: Kniess Grave
Jade: The numbers on the stone are the location in the cemetery. 3-14-26 is Space 3 - Lot 14 - Lawn 26.
Lawn 26 was a Catholic Lawn. The small concrete markers, about 4" X 12" were supplied by the cemetery if the family could not afford to place a stone on the grave.
Many of those small markers have been overgrown through the years and lost. I had to poke around the plot with a screwdriver to find the marker and remove a piece of sod to expose it. Their was a gravestone on either side so it was fairly easy to find. Happy Hunting...

Lester Dalton

Great job on Lester Dalton Jade.

"If we don't know where we've been, we don't know where we're going." Genealogy is our history. The sooner an old [or any grave for that matter] grave is transcribed, the more information can be gathered from it, before it fades away into forgotten history forever. Lester was my grandfather. Let me know if you ever find out who his father was.

Thank you

William Emmerich
I added the William Emmerich newspaper obituary to his Findagrave memorial. I found it online at the site. I will try to look up some of the other Emmerich obits at the New Ulm Public Library today (Newspaper archives).

RE: Arthur Werner
Hello! I got the date from the Appleton Public Library Obituary index. I tried to look up the actual obituary online on, but unfortunately that particular date of the Post Crescent is not online yet. Here is the link to the index listing.

I hope this helps!

Thank you for the photo of Carol's headstone. Her husband remarried and is not buried with her. Her headstone has his name on it.
