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.

Switzer-Kauffman
My wife has Switzer's in her family and I am a Coffman with Kauffman's in my family.
How can we find out if these are the same families?
Thanks

RE: Photos
She is by the first husband. I have some of the obits I got at the libary on Saturday for you. I meant to email to you before now. Hopfully I will remember when I get home tonight. I seen the flash drive sitting on the end table this morning and thought I didn't send them to you yet.

RE: Photos
Hi Evan,

Your very welcome. You see I added her first husband? I was funny, I did not look at her memorial like I usually do, and could not find her and was sure I was at the right area. So I took pictures to ask were those people are located at and find out where I was, and there I had the right ones but with a different last name! I do wish Find A Grave would have have all last names show up in a request! I will go back today, reading her memorial I am pretty sure a daughter and family are by them. I will let you know!

RE: Fred Samp
Hi Evan,

Yesterday I went and got the obits for the Samp family. I will try to type them in tonight or at least by the weekend. Fred's wife did remarry after his death and is buried beside him.

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.
