Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a licensed athletic trainer with a BS from UW-Madison and a MS from the University of Georgia. 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 Ancestry.com, your personal genealogy page, etc. I don't mind if you use 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.

*I do manage about 300 extra memorials, which were transferred to me by Scott W. prior to his passing, so that I may maintain/transfer them as appropriate.

-------------------------------------------

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
Section 3, Blocks 12, 13, 21, 22, 23, 32, 33 & 42

Have photographed the following but haven't uploaded yet: Section 2, Blocks 5, 6, and 7
Section 3, Blocks 11, & 31
Section 4, Blocks 11, 12, 13, 21 & 22

Jade,
I LOVE GETTING EDITS FROM YOU! I always know that they are accurate and I don't have to research before I process. You make memorials so great and I appreciate all that you do for Find A Grave! You rock!

RE: Mengs

I found many records for the Meng family on Ancestry. Oscar and Marie took a vacation to Cuba in 1927.

RE: Hagemann family
Hi, Jade!

I am a direct descendant of Anton through his son, Joseph, who moved to Alabama in the 1880's. My family still lives in part of my great-grandfather Joe's orignal homestead in Cullman County.

I would love to exchange info with you.

I know that Anton brought his family to America in 1846, but I can't fnd records of his immigration. Did your ancestor come over at the same time?

It's great to hear from a new cousin!
