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: Anna Emerich Petrie
Hi, I'm not related. Her obituary was on the same page with some of my friend's family's obituaries. Just thought I'd share. Take good care, Mary Ann

RE: Ellen Olsen Gallagher
Hi Jade,

Ellen Olsen is the G-G-Grandmother of my husband. My husband's Uncle provided this information as he had the Gallagher family records. I do not have any documents besides the US and Wisconsin censuses and her gravesite.

re Gutzmers
Hi - you asked if I am related to the Gutzmers ---- Anna Hanf, who married William Gutzmeer, is a distant cousin. Her grandfather, Gottfried Hanf, is also my g-grandfather.

Thanks for making the edits.

RE: Julia Schillinger
Hi again, OK, I found the one you refer to in your recent message to me:
Resurrection Cemetery
Dane County
Wisconsin, USA
Plot: Section 1, Block 5

Created by: Jade
Record added: Dec 01, 2012
Find A Grave Memorial# 101566154

She was Julia LaCrosse Schllinger (Julia Mae b. 1924 was her granddaughter. She was married to my second cousin, Joseph Schillinger. They married 28 July 1885 ("Wisconsin, County Marriages, 1836-1911,"Waunakee, Dane, Wisconsin, United States, Wisconsin Historical Society, Madison; FHL microfilm 1,275,928). I got her exact death and birth dates from the family records of another relative, but no problem if you do not feel comfortable adding those to your memorial, which has both years (b. and d.) correct. That's enough. But her middle name was Johanna - would you mind adding that, since that would help future relations distinguish her from others? I have death records for some of her 8 children but not hers. Thanks, Judy

RE: Julia Schillinger
Hi Jade, please send me the Find A Grave memorial # for her? Is she Julia Mae Schillinger (maiden name) from WI. born about 1924? If so, she was my 4th cousin, 1x removed. You can email me at I do not have any record of my message to you so I do not know if I inquired whether you have access to the headstone so you can read those dates from it? (I live in MA.) Thanks, Judy

Her mother, Anna Schmitz, is my 3x great grandmother. I have more information about her father than her mother.
