Bio and Links
Bio Photo One of the best features of Find A Grave is that it provides a forum where years of genealogical research can be shared with others. Please let me know if you have additional biographical or statistical information for any of my memorials, as it is always welcome. The wealth of knowledge that others have sent to me through Find A Grave is astounding.

If you are aware of links for parents and/or spouses that I have not yet added, I would appreciate it if you would use the edit tab to leave the name and memorial number of the person or people who should be linked.

Thanks to all those who have generously shared your family stories and beautiful photos with me. I sincerely appreciate being allowed to add them to the memorials for your loved ones. The pictures and studio portraits that for years have been carefully preserved in family photo albums, add such a wonderful dimension to Find A Grave. They help create a memorial tribute that is all the more special and meaningful.

Before asking for a memorial transfer, please determine whether or not this is really necessary. Transfers of management should only be requested if you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections even if you are not the memorial manager. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a transfer request. It would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire family trees.

Transfers will only be considered if they comply strictly with Find A Grave guidelines. You must state your exact relationship to the deceased. People who request transfers and then fail to improve and maintain the memorial are certainly not honoring the memory of their family member.

Bulk surname transfers will not be considered under any circumstances.

Unless otherwise noted, all bios on my memorials were researched and written by me. Post-1922 verbatim obituaries have not been included in order to avoid copyright violations.

I have put a lot of time and effort into my memorials on Find A Grave. I strive to make sure that the information on them is as accurate as possible, but I am realistic and know that mistakes do happen. Please use the edit tab to leave a message regarding any errors or omissions that need to be corrected.

By working together, we can continue to build Find A Grave into a better and better site!


Note: 30 Sep 2013 marked a very sad day for all Find A Grave contributors when the founder of this website sold us out to

I will continue to add to and maintain my memorials as long as Find A Grave remains a completely free website, open to all without charge.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 126993786 & # 126993707
It definitely refreshed my intentions to do more research after reading your report. Michael, son of Leonhard and Christine was my great grandfather and the first Michael in a long line of Michaels after him. There was considerable research in my ancestry account going back to C. 1630's on the Maurers. Like you, I found nothing for Eva but thanks to you I now have Margaret. I agree that the image in the 1850 census could be "Marg" instead of Mary and that resolves another question so I appreciate your response. I considered the name Of Rohmer as Christine's family name for a long time but came to the same conclusion some time ago that it was not accurate. Lestler is a new name for my research. Thank you again.

re: Margaret Maurer Ruebel & Christine Lestler Maurer, Scenic Hill Cemetery
I was thrilled to read your report. I have been searching for years to find the female offspring of Leonhard and Christine Maurer. Christine shows up in the 1850 census of St Louis MO as "Cho" along with her husband Leonhard listed as "L". "Michl", Mary and Eva are the children in 1850. By 1960 John and Joseph show up. I have never found Eva. Could it be that Mary and Margaret are the same person? The last name of Lestler for Christina was a name I had never heard until reading your post. Did I say that I was thrilled to get this information? thank you for your research.

RE: Roy Schlieper (74690589)
Verse on headstone:

"Favored of heaven to wear the crown
Without life's weary race to run"

The first line is from a Longfellow poem, but the second line is different. An Internet search showed the quote was widely used on headstones of children in the 19th century.

"Infant son" Schlieper
Dear Lynn:

I was at Hamburg Cemetery recently and came across the grave you recorded as "Infant Son" Schlieper (#74690589). The baby's name was Roy, which is barely legible on the top of the headstone. The birth and death dates on the face match my records for a child by that name born to Charles B. and Rachel (Wineland) Schlieper, who are buried at Pleasant Hill.

The grandfather you mentioned--Charles Henry Schlieper--was my great-great-grandfather. Roy would have been my paternal grandmother's first cousin.

Thanks for your work.

My pleasure! It makes me happy that I was able to help so your family could view it. I just started to assist and I decided to make it a habit to look around to make sure I might get other family members that might be around in case this helps people. Im happy I was able to get Shirley for you as well. :) Have a terrific day!

Samuel McCartney
I found Sam's tombstone while visiting the Carrico Plummer Cemetery. I also visited the Hardin County Clerk's office. In the write up on the site it states Sam was born in Belfast Ireland. Most census reports state he was born in Scotland.

Our family bible says Ireland. I have his 2 marriages and the children from those unions. But, I have NO other information on Sam.

I have been searching for him for 7 years - Sam is my Great Grandfather. Our line is Sam Mccartney - Hiram McCartney - Tony Mccartney - myself Patricia Ann McCartney.

I so want info on Sam and the previous generation - how did he get here?

Any help would be appreciated!
PS: So appreciate all the work you volunteers do!!

RE: Bertha Dieckmann
Thanks. I realized that after I tried to add her and did not know what to do to correct it. Now I have to correct her sister Emilie Fiedler.
