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.

John Page's death certificate reads that he was born in 1863. I noted in his bio the discrepancy. Nancy Bryant: I do not have info on her being married to a man named Smith. Could you please tell me where you got this info. Thanks.

|Shasta-wildflower||RE: Ethel Ludlum|
Your so welcome. Glad to have helped.
|Kathy (Hoy) Eltiste||Re: My Memorial for My GG Grandmother Emaline (Loucks) Hoover Wise|
Thank you for your suggestions regarding my memorial for my GG Grandmother Emaline. Please keep in mind that the word "Guidelines" means just that, Guidelines and nothing more.
I will not change the spelling of her name, as family records indicate her name is spelled correctly on the memorial and Not on her tombstone. Mistakes are made, even if they are "Cut In Stone"....
She was lovingly referred to by my father and his sisters, as "Great Grandma Wise", but my link to her is through her 1st marriage to Isaiah Hoover, but he died young in 1901, so when she remarried Jerry Wise, she became known as "Great Grandma Wise".
I don't know if you have ever seen her tombstone in person, but she shares it with her Isaiah, and it reads as follows:
Born: Nov. 27, 1859
Died: Feb. 18, 1946
It is for all of these reasons, that I will not change my memorial.
Are you somehow related, if so, please enlighten me.
Thank You for your Inquiry,

This is a duplicate memorial which was posted in 2007. Yours was added in 2009 and therefore should be removed.
