Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family history has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I started taking pictures of headstones before we had the luxury of digital cameras---oh my, I am dating myself!!
As I have explored and stomped cemeteries, now with my digital camera, I am working to refine some initial photos. While stomping for family headstones, I have taken pictures of names that have been seen in my genealogy database. In many cases, I have made contact with distant relatives and always enjoy hearing from them.

I did find a reference with John Erbes the son of Valentine and Katherine, on his death certificate has his Mothers Maiden name as Dickmiller. I have not seen this name with the same spelling twice.

Katherina Kessler Erbes
I just wanted to forward the source information of the update requested I had sent to you earlier.

“Valentine Erbes (1843) and his wife Katharine (Deichmiller), initially farmed the home place before purchasing their own homestead in southwestern Dimmick Township. There they were the parents of twelve children. Valentine and the younger children moved to Peru’s Tenth Street after Katherine’s death.”
“Mendota Area German Pioneer Families” Arthur L. Ladenburger 2003, p. 252.

For your information.

George Phillip Koehler
Hello! I'm working on the descendents of George C. Koehler and I see you added his son, George Phillip, who is buried at Friends Cemetery in Putnam County (IL). Would you please transfer his memorial to me so I can fill in his relatives? His profile number is #131184465. Thank you!

Marie is my 3rd great-grandmother. I would appreciate it if you would consider transferring her page to me if you are not directly related as well. I'd like to add more detail to her page.

Malanda Ferry Raspiller
Hello! I am very excited to find these Raspiller entries! her daughter Christine is my great great grandmother and I was never able to find information about her parents and so on. I was curious if you had any information or suggestions on where to look. Her headstone only shows her married name of Raspiller and I was wondering how you came across her maiden name of Ferry?

Thank you very much for the transfers! Your work and generosity is certainly appreciated.
