Bio and Links
Bio Photo I first became interested in researching my family tree about 14 years ago. I was able to get a good deal of information on my father's family. But my mother's family was proving to be a problem, due to a genealogy nemesis, fire in the courthouse.

Thanks to Find-A-Grave, I have located my maternal grandparents and great-grandparents!!!! thanks F-A-G!!

I hope to go to Nashville soon for a more 'hands on' approach to the research to supplement what I've already found.

I love visiting old cemeteries (and ghosts towns), but never thought that I would find a place to post some of the photos I've taken. I hope that I can help others like some have helped me in the past.

I have added many memorials of photos that I've taken while wandering through cemeteries in the Tacoma, WA area.

***And I am more than willing to transfer any memorial that I have created, as long as it isn't also a member of my own family..... all you have to do is ask*****

Any photos of headstones that I have taken, feel free to use.

Any photos of people that I have attached to any memorial please asked first before you use.

Families I am researching, all from Missouri/Illinois/Tennessee area: Heffernan, Charleville, Panchot, Timper, Gerard, Aubuchon, Hynes.

RE: patrick fitzgibbons
I see the ones I put on yours aren't turning when clicked on. I'll try to resize them.

RE: patrick fitzgibbons
Hi, I've tried everything I know to do many times. I don't know why some of the ones I take are doing that. They aren't sideways when you click on them. I'll keep trying to turn them though. :)

RE: cecelia panchot grobe
Charli, thank you SO much! I'm just now exploring my Panchot line, I didn't even know my gpa Grobe's family was from Ste Gen, my mom's family is from Old Mines so I have a ton of ancestors on HER side from there. Thanks so much for all you do to keep memory of them alive!

RE: Peter Panchot
Charli, thanks so much for your reply! Sorry I didn't think to send the link to Cecelia's memorial at

It lists her as buried at Valle Spring Cemetery in Ste Genevieve, MO. I found it ironic b/c Cecelia is a gma in my paternal line, and she's buried in a cemetery named after my maternal grandma's family (she was a Valle). Any questions just let me know and many thanks!

Photo Request
This is my first time for making photo requests. Thank you so much for offering to take the photo of (baby) Karen C Denzer at Ft. Lewis. I was concerned about what would happen. To the memorial creator I have written awhile back now twice, within 8 months apart, requesting the transfer of her memorial into my care with no response. My heart is in the right place trying to do the right things for her. My mom had wanted to go out there but her health is preventing this and besides, we were an overall very close military family and it could be upsetting. The baby's mom and my mom were close friends and a mother to me. We have never really gotten past her sudden passing.

If you ever have a moment to access my bio, the baby is under Infant Friends. This is where I begin to tell her story and connect her to her baby sister Christina who died at birth too and connect her to her mom Betty and Frederick (Fritz) as best as I can. Their memorials were ever so graciously transferred into my care. Karen is named after my sister, it is all in her short story. I hope that you find a marker out there. My mom remembers at best, Karen was born and died at birth in the summer of 1964. I don't know if that info helps you.

I decided to look at your photos at Ft. Lewis and found an older marker, Infant Son Haffner. It saddened me but, it was so nicely done. Your photographs are remarkable. The headstones are very respectable looking.

I left a flower for your grandmother. What a beautiful woman and photo. Out of my grandparents I only knew one grandma. She passed away when I was in HS. The grandpa I knew had adopted my mom. I felt closer to the ones I never knew, than to him. I knew my grandparents through some stories and looking at just a few photos and I cherish every bit of it. So I understood the feelings about your grandmother. Except her story is uniquely tragic and she is a true heroine to your family and many. This is why I feel even more passionate about connecting families.

Again Thank You,

pure grace

FYI StL Calvary
If you are interested in find Catholics buried in st. Louis, then you probably want to check the Archdiocese website. There is a link on the StL Calvary main page.
