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.

RE: Fred Samp
Hi Evan,

A woman Adelaide Samp Stowell is buried next to Fred. I think it would be his wife who remarried after his death. I will have to go to the library and look up her obit to be sure. When I do I will let you know. I may have time tomorrow afternoon if not then this coming weekend.

Thanks,

Justine

RE: Ater Cemetery-Susannah Lash
Susannah is at the end of the 11th row. There are a total of 21 rows in this cemetery. It is a relatively small cemetery with a couple of hundred graves.

There are 11 gravestones in Row 11, but clearly some spaces that used to have gravestones at some point, so I wouldn't say she was in "space 11".

RE: Ater Cemetery-Susannah Lash
I do have an index of the cemetery that tells me who is buried by plot, so it was not too difficult to find her. I knew it was her stone because I could read the name Susannah. I wasn't able to read much more than that, but I could try to do a rubbing of the stone to get more information.

RE: Hendersons in Glen Cove
I'm glad I could help you and of course you may use any of my photos. The more people that pass them around, the better chances that the pictures will be preserved for future generations. Were you related to Grace and Farrell on the Morrisson/Henderson family or the Jayroe family? Grace's mother and my gr grandfather John Warnock were brother and sister.
I would love to share a picture of Grace if you have one.

RE: Texas Rangers
I created a new Texas Ranger Cemetery named "First Texas Rangers". So now Thomas Hudson Barron is number 1 on the new sight. Thank you for sending him to me. I appreciate it very much.

RE: Texas Rangers
Hi,

I am going to make another Ranger category for the old time rangers, so will be glad to add your relative to it, in fact he'll be the 1st one entered. I have been so swamped with the WWI Era rangers, that I haven't been able to do much else. Thanks for sending the info.
