Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love Genealogy! I love it so much, I actually spend time doing family research for other people in my spare? time. I've been doing it for many years and this internet stuff really blows me away.

Every day I learn something new. Not just about my family, but also about our country, and what pioneering spirits our ancestors had to settle and tame this beautiful and once very wild place. I try to research the history of each place I come to so that I can get a feel of what my ancestors were faced with and their daily life. It has really made me appreciate them more and has renewed my pride in the wonderful country they built.

I discovered Find-A-Grave while trying to work with the Tombstone Project on USGenWeb, but it didn't seem to take off too well. Some states, like Iowa & Illinois for a couple, have actually published their burial lists on line. What a find!! While Find A Grave can be a great Genealogy resource, let's not forget the main purpose is to document, i.e. photograph the headstones, the burial sites of our people. So many cemeteries have already disappeared and every day we lose a little more.

My family names are: Ammeling, Barron, Beabout/Bebout/Beebout, Becker, Beekman, Befort, Benner/Bender/Binder, Berens, Blatter, Blum, Bohannon, Bohm, Bohmer, Boughton, Brodbeck, Brungardt, Cheetham, Chriswell, Cilplinger, Clark, Cobb, Cook, Cox, De Snick, Dechant, Deibler, Dicks, Doerfler, Doland, Doll, Donven, Doppler, Dreiling/Dreilingk, Duck, Eschelbacher, Eschenbrenner, Fedley, Fink, Finley, Fischer, Fisher, Fissner, Forsyth/Forsythe, Frank, Gehrig, Goetz, Gowensbach, Griffin, Haffner/Heffner, Harlan/Harland, Hauer, Haus, Heil, Henneigh/Hennigh, Hill, Hoffman, Hoope, Jamison, Jans, Jesel, Jones, Jund, Kaiser, Kauffman, Kendall, Kirke, Klipphan, Knoden, Knox, Kohl, Konig, Kramer/Cramer, Krebs, Labattie, Lambert, Lang/Lange, Lash/Loesch/Losch, Latheimer, Laubenheimer, Lichtenstern, Lightburn, Linenberger, Ludlum, Maddock, Mahr, Mamer, Markle/Mercklen/Merkel/Merkle/Merklin, Marshall, Maser, Mattingly, Mays, McElroy, McGrew, Mellinger, Miller, Moer, Moll, Molter, Montgomery, Moore, Mortlett, Mueller/Muller, Nebergall, Newberry, Nichols, O'Hara, Otter, Peace/Pease/Piess, Pfister, Pooley, Poppleman, Ray/Reah, Reger, Reuzel, Rhem, Riedel, Ruder, Schad, Schmidt, Schumacher, Schump, Seiler/Snyder, Shupp, Smith, Snook, Soars, Sprenger, Stacher/Stecher, Switzer, Taylor, Thaner, Thompson, Thurman, Trabaugh/Trarbach, Tweedell, Van Kinderen/Verkinderen, Waddington, Wagner, Wanger/Wenger, Wartmann, Weaver, Wilson, Wolffskehl/Wolfkiel/Wolfkill/Wolfskiehl….and many more.

Find-A-Grave is a great site. I'm not a cemetery walker, so almost all of my memorials are of my own family or related in some way. However, if I can be of service, let me know.

the article on john hennigh shows he also died on 3/3/1889
John Hennigh died of typhoid fever Saturday morning at 11:20 at the home of his step father, T. S. Carr, No 421 E. Edmund street. The deceased was twenty one years and twenty three days old and had been sick for six weeks. He had been attending the Normal University although he had a teachers certificate. The young man was a member of the Presbyterian church at Prairie Home and was a general favorite with a wide circle of acquaintances
Saturday Herald 3/9/1889
I am wondering if this is Daniel same dates but for some reason they called him john? I looked thru the next newspaper to see if I could find where he is buried and no luck.

Felix Hennigh
This is a family in which I do a lot of research in Shelby County, so do not wish to transfer Felix at this time.

However, Samuel Hennigh who died in 1894 is the father of Felix. I have news articles which states he is the father of Dale Hennigh and one which lists his will and heirs which states son, Felix Dale Hennigh.

I will be glad to email these articles to you. My email -
