Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello!
I have been researching genealogy for over 25 years now and enjoy all aspects of it. I am a cemetery hopper and also enjoy helping others trace their family history. Joining has now become my passion and I am anxious to have the opportunity to assist others in their research as well as expand my own. Although I am only listed in one area code for photo volunteer I am willing to take pictures in other surrounding areas and when I travel. I am willing to share information with other genealogists researching my family lines. I carry a bucket of flags with me in my cemetery kit and when I find your loved one and discover he/she has served in the Military I will place a flag on their grave. I have also decided to take random photos of sections when visiting cemeteries and listing memorials for them. If you find your relative on one of my listings and want me to transfer to you please just ask. This picture is of me standing between my 4th great grandparents markers in Pownal Vermont. John Downer who fought in the Revolutionary War as well as the Battle of Bennington, and his wife Lydia (Dunham) Downer. This photo was taken on my visit to Vermont in 2008 to attend our very first "ancestral reunion". All of us 'cousins' who attended and met for the very first time all descend from these grandparents and branch out in different lines. It was great meeting and sharing information and photos with everyone. We all keep in touch and plan to gather again.

RE: Florence G Thombs
Florence is the grandmother of my ifst cousin and I was working on her tree for her. If it is possible to transfer to me, I would appreciate it. I have other family members to connect and I hope to find more info for her bio.
Thank you for taking the time to reply to my message. I tried to find lists of those buried at Mount Vernon as I have other family that might be buried there.

Florence G Thombs
Florence has been a big part of my research. She married #3 John M Thombs.
If you are not connected would you please transfer her to me-I'd like to connect her to her family.
Also if you have any phone numbers of who I might contact at the Mount Vernon Cemetery, would you please share?
Thank you,
Nannette #46825463

Emma Kleifgen at St. Mary's Cemetery
Hi! If there was a grave marker for Emma Kleifgen it is no longer readable. The first photo shows the old grave markers that are in the lot. The note that was on the photo request that there are no other Kleifgen family in the lot was not correct. I do not know if all of these are members of the family.

Also there:

1. Johann Kleifgen, 7-21-1826 - 6-28-1891
2. Eliszbeth Kleifgen, 1-8-1825 - 11-11-1908
3. Elsie Stuenkel, 1900 - 1962
4. Maria [Barzen] Kleifgen, 8-12-1861 - 8-24-1892
5. Anna Kleifgen, 1867 - 1956
6. Henry Kleiften, 1858 - 1950
7. Dan Lawlor, 1896 - 1967
8.Elizabeth Lawlor, 1905 - 1993

There may be other Barzen Family members.

If you would like photos of any of these, please add photo requests, and I will go back and take detailed photos.
