Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a licensed athletic trainer, 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 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 11, 12, 13, 21, 22, 23, 31, 32, 33 & 42
Section 4, Block 13, 21 & 22

I have photographed the following but haven't uploaded yet:
Section 2, Blocks 5, 6, & 7
Section 4, Blocks 11 & 12
Section 8

Irvin and Bessie Dugan were my late wife Carolyn A Campbell's Grandparents on her father's side. Her mother is still alive and is 94 years old. Thank you for the photos of Carolyn's grandparent's headstones.

RE: Dale Fose
Thank you for adding Robert - I didn't have him on my list so will need to do a little research in my family history books to see where he fits in. Again, A BIG THANK YOU for your help! Mary

Jade- Wow, thank you, thank you - you have gone more then the extra mile for me and my family. I can't thank you enough! Everyone has been so helpful and considerate, makes you feel good inside. I love pulling families together, even if they are the ancestors of cousins.
Great work -
