Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family tree since 1999. The primary branches are PODBOY/PODBOJ, ROK, PECARO/PECORARO, BORRIS, and SCHULTZ/SCHUBELTOWSKI. I love locating family members and reconnecting with the past.

Amazing similarities exist between humans of different races, colors and beliefs. The similarities that join us far outweigh the differences that separate us. There is unity within our diversity.

My objectives on Findagrave are to link family members, add obits or biographies, provide grave or crypt locations and -- with the assistance of countless volunteers (my angels!) -- include photos of final resting places. I strive for quality, not quantity.

Up until the summer of 2014, I tried to visit each memorial I created (plus others that related to them in some way) on birth and death dates to commemorate the event. It was my honor and privilege to do so. Unfortunately, life stepped into the mix and I could no longer devote the time it took to keep up with the task. Perhaps one day I can resume the practice.

If you find any errors or have additional information (dates or places, etc.), please let me know. And if you have photos of any of the people remembered on these pages, feel free to upload them.

Mandes Hufsmith
Patti, are you aware that Mandes Hufsmith, 31682341 at Brown cemetery near Colesburg was probably a civil war vet? Cemetery records indicate he died at a military hospital at St. Louis , MO., and Rootsweb gives occupation as GAR soldier. Also the cemetery records give his date of birth as Nov. 21.

RE: Vogt
I have several documents of the family that list it as Melin... it is know that newspaper obituaries are sometimes misspelled so I try to rely on "official documents" where ever possible and multiple within the family also 1910 census lists as Melin. her brothers (and one sister) are listed as Melin on death certificates so I'm going with it.

well! it looks like you and I have been researching the same family line. LOL... thanks for the fixes... every once in a while, despite the fact that I selected each of the windows, it doesn't go through and sure enough it didn't on those two.. I would have caught them eventually but it's nice to have a checker... :)

I'm about to upload the pics of the Emmans marker in Greenwood, Orlando. I found another Kendrick, George Morris and A. Lois Ellis. They are in a different section, but I snapped a pic anyway and will add the memorials in a few minutes. If they are your people, let me know and I'll gladly transfer.

I didn't find any Arvans in Greenwood.

RE: Marie L Richmond
I posted the picture to Anna. Please transfer Marie to me and I will delete her.

I am photographing section of Immaculate Conception a little at a time. I hope I will find some more of the Larkins.

Good luck on your family search.

Marie L Robinson
The possibility exists that this may be the same memorial as Anna Marie Larkin Robinson (142994780). "Have a Heart" has her connected to other family members.

If the connection between Anna Marie and Marie can be proven please let me know and I will delete this memorial. If there is no connection then she is all yours.

Good Luck on your family search.
