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, however, if I can be of service research wise, please let me know.

RE: George W. Rowland
Me again! I sent a message to Gerblady and said I can add my photo to her Entry.

RE: George W. Rowland
I believe it's just the way the circle is layer out, they aren't individual stones but the names are spaced evenly. The circle may be in four sections if I remember correctly.

RE: George Rowland/Roland
For now, I can add that as a Note on my Entry. I'm pretty certain he is not buried at the War memorial, the names are in a close circle. I'm not surprised your photo request has not been filled. The cemetery is huge!! The management used to not be very helpful unless you paid $35. It's now under new management, so if I have time I'll see if they'll give me the exact location. Then I can try and find it or at least have the Plot info. to add. I can also add my photos to your entry.

I'll transfer my photo my photo to the other entry, then family will know he is also named in the war memorial.
Thanks, Connie

RE: Hummer
I didn't know if you every had the pleasure to meet Virgil but he was a really great guy! He is buried just across the little ditch from my husband. My mother-in-law use to play with Virgil sometimes. As long as I could remember back, Virgil and Betty Lee Roe played together. They did a great job and it was a true blessing to be able to listen to them.

Robert and Roberta Henderson
Evan ...

In 1988, when I did the Glen Cove Cemetery survey for the book, "Coleman County and Its People," there were only funeral home markers in place for Robert and Roberta, with their names and dates. However, since they had been there 6 and 10 years at that time, they could have been more permanent type markers. They graves and markers were there in 1988. I will pull their obituaries, if available and place the obituaries on their memorials.

I have noticed that some folks who are not familiar with some of our large country cemeteries have trouble and lack patience to find the grave sites, so just say they could not be found. Next time I am out that way, I will take a look.

Good Hunting ...

They just resold the rest of the spaces to other people. As we see on the page showing the plot, four other people are buried with them. Catherine is buried there, she is buried between W. W. White and Sallie White. She doesn't have a stone though. I will go today and take a picture of space between the White's and put it on her page.

RE: Hoffmans
My pleasure. They were buried next to another Fred Hoffman and his wife, I also photographed theirs and added them to their memorials.
