I feel that visiting & viewing grave-sites and taking photos of grave markers is a way to honor the life of those who came before us, especially those who died at a young age. It is this that combines my passion for genealogy and my contributions here at Find A Grave.

Please contact me if you are in need of a photo in the North area of Phoenix and Maricopa County.

My photos may be used but please give acknowledgement to who you received them from.

I have added summaries of obituaries for both William and Isabel. They are now linked to their parents. There are quite a few short articles about William in the Washington Post in case you are interested.

I understand your frustration level to leave messages like the ones you left me copied below, but it not acceptable:

Message #1 for Isabel:
The date of death that you have is date of interment. I have a copy of the record from family search showing the date of death and date of interment. Gail

Message #2 for William:
This too is an incorrect date of death. You put date of interment. I wish Find A Grave would either include date of interments or ask folks not to post interment dates as death dates. Sorry, rant over. Gail

If information on the memorial page is incorrect the accepted procedure is to use the edit system to make a correction. Take a look at the records for Glenwood Cemetery which are found on line so you can see how the information is organized. It is not. It is browsable only:

Another confusing issue is what appears to be the Social Security record for Isabel. The date of death does not match that of her obituary.

Isabel H Schinnerer
United States Social Security Death Index
Age 92
Given Name Isabel
Middle Name H
Surname Schinnerer
Birth Date 04 Aug 1877
State District Of Columbia
Last Place of Residence District Of Columbia
Previous Residence Postal Code 20011
Event Date 15 Aug 1969

Thank you for your help.

RE: Truebig photo @Long Island national
I'm guessing my posting and your message may have passed one another in the ether. At the time I posted the photo for Frank Treubig, I simultaneously posted the image at the site for Gertrude Treubig. I think this gives you what you were looking for. Best, Helen

Ok, as per your request, I am bugging you now :-) about Joseph Bishoff (Josef Bischoff?). My dad, who is 85, loves to hear about this stuff.

RE: Zapp & Mueller
Hi Gail,

My great grandparents were Jacob Wengler and Annie Mueller. I've been adding memorials and photos to Find A Grave this week.

Jacob Wengler's brother was John Wengler; John was married to Theresa Zapp.
Annie Mueller's sister was Pauline Mueller; Pauline was married to Peter Zapp.

If you go to the link blow (to Jacob Wengler's memorial page), there's a picture of a chart I drew back in 1998 that shows how the Zapps, Muellers, and Wenglers are connected.

Best wishes,
Elizbeth (Cook) King
My grandfather was Joseph Christian Wengler (1898-1955), also known as Red Joe Wengler.

Treubig questions
Hi again,
I noticed that you are researching the Truebig family. A Jacob Truebig was executor of Elisabeth Bischoff's estate, and I believe she and Joseph were buried in his plot. Do you know what their relationship was?
All the best

You are most welcome. Absolutely, go ahead and create one if she is family to you and one has not already been created?
