Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a healthcare professional, originally from Madison, WI. I spend a lot of 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 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 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: Begg/Schrooten
Hi, Jade,

No, I'm not related, however, I am a friend of the family. I have a classmate whose mother was a Begg and she passed away this past week. Her name was Juanita Begg Hoeppner (139107212). If you'd like me to put you in touch with the family, I will be happy to pass your message along! :)

RE: Donald Purcell
Hi Jade - I'll call tomorrow. I thought it was probably to late for this year - but if I don't request while I am working on the family - I might never get back to it.

I just finished working on my cousin's wife family - you had shot all the pictures early in the year - so thanks a million for that -- The Lavin family.
Stay safe
