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

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

RE: Hibernia Donohoo
No problem, Jade. I questioned the same thing, and if I didn't have her death notice right in front of me, I too would question it. Cuba City News-Herald, Feb 23, 1939 (p1/c6). If I type it up c/o the editt tab of Find A Grave, would you please add it to her Memorial? I can do some with her husband, as well. Susie

RE: Resurrection Requests
I am so thankful that you are still willing to help me. On 6/7, I had a right lung transplant, so I haven't been able to do much work. My two laptops at home are not working at the moment, so I haven't had access to a computer until now (I'm actually using my brother's computer in Simi Valley, CA...about 75 miles from Fountain Valley. Once the home computers are fixed (or I get back to work on 9/8) I'll be able to become more active.

Thank you for the photos, edits, memorials, and overall really nice work! And your website is pretty amazing too - wish we overlapped!

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.

Hi Jade,
Thanks for the info for Hiland. I added it and corrected his death place on his page. It all helps.
PS. Thanks for doing all you're doing. You have the correct attitude!
