Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired Tech Lab teacher in middle school.
I enjoy genealogy and creating photo album pages of grandkids. I especially enjoy taking pictures of headstones. Cemeteries are lovely, peaceful and quiet.

PLEASE use the edit button to request transfers and make changes/additions to memorials.
Thank you.

Also, since I take a large number of cemstone photos, it is time prohibitive to clean them, especially the older ones, before taking a pic. I will be glad to retake any photos upon request.

AND, I would really appreciate any email communication to include the memorial numbers of the person(s) to whom you are referring. It is so time consuming (and open to error) to find names using the search tool.

Thank you so much for all the family tombstone pictures you took. I really appreciate all your time and trouble going out to the cemetery for me.

Zimmerman Family
Such a surprise - I asked for a transfer of my Mom's Uncle Albert Zimmerman and you went above and beyond and transferred his whole family to me.
You are the best!

RE: 34324976 Jess Bledsoe
I apologize. I thought I typed an explanation in the note box of the request page. Maybe it did not get included for some reason. I was requesting another photo of the stone that would be a more close up shot or higher resolution picture. I was attempting to read the hand written information that is visible on the stone and some writting is visible that was crudely carved or scraped into the stone. I believe it is extra information that could help identify parents. I could barely make out some of the names and some dates but when zoomed in it is blurry and can't tell what it says. A closer or higher resolution photo would clear it up so I could be certain of what it says. I was also wanting a photo of the little standing plaque the is seen in the existing photo. If it's still there of course. Possible clues to a family member that we can find no death or burial info on. Thanks

RE: Mathilda Johannes - Immanuel or Evergreen
Thank you for receiving my updates with such a good attitude. If you start feeling like you need a break, just let me know. I could shift my focus back to my side of the family!

RE: Erma Patterson
Oh thank you Mae. A cousin I meet online with have been wondering where Erma Floy Patterson went. You just didn't have her down as James & Eva Mae Patterson daughter, along with Hallie & Loy Alva Patterson. She graduated from the high school there. Just if you can add her on too with her brothers. I wish Kansas had more records on line, or Morris County. Do you know for sure if the James Patterson that died in 1935 in Greenwood Cemetery is Eva Mae Watkins-Patterson husband? Mae, I so want to get out to Council Grove. Thank you for all you do. Let me know if I can help you out in Orange County, Ca. But someone, in Council Grove has to have a picture of James & Martha Watkins. If this man was the largest land owner in town at one time, and deeded the land where the high school now sits, even ran the Commercial Hotel for awhile. I have to get out to that town. Take Care Mae

Would you happen to have the names of the parents of Viola Linkugel?

RE: Cessinger infants in Immanuel Lutheran
Let me know if you get a response from Geno-seeker. I find it interesting how so many people came through Hermansberg, for no larger than it is. There must have been some promotion of the church back east.

John Hatke-Find A Grave Memorial # 60276705
Thank you for fulfilling my photo request for John Hatke. I appreciate it greatly. I was just wondering if there was anything on the back of his headstone. His wife, Emma Julia Staub Hatke, is also buried in this plot. I don't think her name and information was ever inscribed on the marker, unless it's on the back. At one time there was an inscription of some kind on the back, but I don't know if she was mentioned there. Thanks for your work on Find a Grave.

Irma I. Miller

I was wondering if you knew Irma's maiden name by chance. I have been searching for a grand aunt Erma/or Irma Brubaker is her maiden name. I know she married a Miller but no information on the spouse. I know her siblings are Ivan, Orin, Vesta, and Eula Brubaker.

Thanks so much,

Julianna Close Gruhnowski Staub
Hello, Julianna was my Great Great Grandmother. My Great Grandfather Gustave Fredrick Gruhn was her son.I have visited her grave a few times, but I have not seen the gold marker that is placed on the stone in the picture that you posted. Does it have any writing on it? The stone was once much larger, and there was a lengthy inscription on the botton of the stone in 1978. The next time I came back to visit in the late 1980's the bottom of the stone and the entire inscription was gone. Just wondered if someone would know how it read.It was written in German.
Thanks for posting
