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 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 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.

Thanks for the edit. Sorry I almost made you make a duplicate.

When I first started on Find A Grave I used to add a person based on the last name on the obit, even though there was mention of other marriage(s). Now unless I know which name is on the stone, I will not add them. Live and learn.

Thanks again, Kathy

RE: Quislings
1940 census Madison, Dane Co. Wisc.
Relation to head Name Age
Head Axel Quisling 45
Wife Adeline Quisling 26

Also his death notice in the Madison Capital times and Madison Wisc. State Journal for Axel Quisling, Sept. 9 1986. She is listed as his wife. Her maiden name is Adeline Simonson.

FYI he and his brothers are cousins to Vidkum Quisling the famous Norwegian "traitor" Quisling of WWII fame. I am doing a study on this family. The brothers owned and operated the Quisling Clinic in Madison. Parents are Andrea and Dagny Quisling. Brothers Sverre, Abraham, Gunnar, and Rolf. Hope this is what you are looking for. Sue

E Pat Jones Photograph
Thank you so much for taking a photograph of the tombstone of E Pat Jones and his wife Oda J. Uncle Pat was my great-grandmother's brother and I have never been able to see his grave. I truly appreciate you taking the time to both photograph it and add it here for me. Thank you for your kindness.

Grave Location
Hi Jade,

I called Resurrection Cemetery and spoke to a wonderful lady by the name of Irma. Robert Seibel's grave is located in Section 6, Row 1, Grave 13. Bless your heart for all that you do!
