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: Rocheleau
Thanks Evan for your kind message. You're every welcome and glad I was able to be of help. I'm also glad you liked the Eagle photo. I think it adds a nice touch to the memorial.

RE: Photo of your marker
Thanks, Evan. half of my photos including the one of me come out sideways or upside down. I don't know how to adjust. Any thoughts? Thank you.

RE: Levi Lambert
You are very welcome. I had to dig dirt away from around the stone. I am glad that I had a trowel with me and a rag to brush the dirt off.

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.
