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: Harris

I just finished doing section 16 last month. I tried to get photos of all the markers there, but it is possible I missed some. I will go to that lot and double check for Sharon, but my guess is if it was there I would have gotten it.

RE: Rowland
if you have the opportunity to visit this establishment, it is worth the time.

No, sorry to say I did not know her. Wish I had! Working in the cemeteries helps me to "know" more about the folks from my area I never got to meet. I am always sorry when there is no marker, and I feel it is important to at least acknowledge their spot with flowers.

RE: Hoskins
Hi Evan,

You're welcome. Not quite 10 feet yet (still have more coming this week) but enough so that no pictures are taken for a while. I took pictures of most of the cemetery this last fall and am slowly making my way through the pile. I was checking the requests last night to see if I had cataloged any yet, and there your are! If they are related, I will gladly transfer.

RE: Jennie Tiffaney
There are 2 infants, I assumed are Jennie's, buried next to her, graves unmarked. The stone actually does not appear to be worn. I believe it is just "simple". I have the dates from the cemetery office as D.O.B June 9, 1885 and D.O.D. Oct. 2, 1912.

Lela Jane Leffler Ludlam
I note that you have flowers on the members of this family. If you are related and have information about descendants, I would be interested in adding them to my family tree and I could send you information about Lela's Leffler ancestors if you would like it. I have been doing genealogy for at least 60 years and glad I lived long enough to add by sitting at my computer rather than traveling as I used to do. You can contact me thru this site or by email at Thank you for all you do.

RE: Powell
I saw at least 2 very old Powell stones that were mostly illegible. I will have to do a etching to hopefully get their information. There were other Powells as well. At this point, I'll wait until Spring (unless we happen to have a day that is 60 degrees).
