Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love learning about my ancestors and the times and countries in which they lived. My direct lines lead me back to France, Germany, Switzerland, and the UK.

Please leave flowers for fallen graver J. Stephen Brangan, who, along with his wife, took many photos for FAG.

About my photos: I take care not to disturb grave sites, and use only passive techniques to get shots, aside from brushing away some leaves or grasses with my hands. You have my permission to use my volunteer photos in any of your online family trees (such as on,, etc.) All I ask is that you credit me.

Please NOTE: I will transfer memorials to family members, *within guidelines* on request; simply submit your request through the link on the memorial page. SEE FAQ PAGE FOR FAG GUIDELINES. I will, of course, make any changes/updates to the memorials I've added upon request. Simply use the EDIT tab in the upper right of the memorial.

I am currently going through the memorials I have added and deleting newspaper obits. Please do not send me edits with obits, as I will not post them.

Hi, Natalie!
I'm currently working on our side of the family and I discovered through your work that there was another son born to Jacob and Susan Head Martz (Daniel S). I wanted to thank you for all your work. By the way, I was wondering why you are deleting obituaries.

Thanks again!
I received Bess today...appreciate it. Everyone on Find A Grave has been great, I have been able to get all of Bess's siblings also from people I do not know, but who were helpful. Natalie, if you don't mind, I would like my grandfather, George Henry Purcell, and my Grandmother Wilda Shrader. That will do it for I am only interested in immediate family and grandparents.

I appreciate all the help you have been with relatives and info about Find A Grave!

Thanks for releasing my father, Joseph Purcell! You have my mother also, Bessie Purcell. The timing is interesting as I had just visited those sites again last week! Thanks!!

RE: Jacob Shrader
Edward John Shrader? He is brother then of Joseph Henry Shrader who I am from. Yes, that would make Jacob my gggfather also! Thats really neat.

Can you tell me the other brothers and sisters Edward and Joseph had? I show two sisters, Matilda Crook and Magdalena Miller. Is this correct? Was there a sister Mary also?

Well, if you ever know someone who wants the line straight down from Joseph H Shrader...send them my way! Our gggfathers would not believe descendants would connect after all these years over devices we call PCs while sitting in their living rooms.

If you have any info on Edward you would like to share...I am listening. Thanks for your time thus far.

Jacob Shrader
Natalie: I have had some great breakthroughs today via Find-a Grave. Thank you so much for your work. Jacob Shrader is my great great grandfather. Downward descent via Joseph Shrader, Wilda Shrader, to her son Joseph William Purcell, who was my dad!

We have nothing on this family line, until I started this search. I was wondering where you got the photo of Jacob Shrader? I see you are from the Shrader line yourself, so if you would like to share any old pictures you have, I would greatly appreciate it.

Wilda's sister were Eleanor and Florence! My dad spoke about her sisters a lot, and I met one of them, I can't remember which as a kid...I remember she has a canary. (Things kids remember)

As you know, its such excitement when you break through a layer of genealogy...anything you can tell me or share I would be greatly appreciative of it. Rick Purcell, (I have always loved Hocking county, and spend most of my time must be in my genes!)

Edward Cyprian Morel # 93984393
Thank you for the flowers added and the correct death
date. I am interested in the Morel/Morell line in Indiana. Do you have more info on the Morels'?
Enjoyed your "Rock & Roll" virtual cemetery.
Have to ask this question. Understand not posting
obits that are recent with living persons listed.
The obit I have on Edward Morel is his mother who passed in 1888. Has all of her sons, when she arrived in US, etc. What is wrong with posting older obits?
Have added you as a friend, hope you don't mind.
Thank you again

Anna-Woodlawn Cemetery
Natalie.....I will check this out at the library and hopefully with the original record books at the cemetery office. Transcriptions spelled the name Emerick which could be incorrect. It appears the grave is next to Frank Bassett's and between Franze and Juliana and George and Mary Strebe. It' rather messy out there right now as there are snow drifts and rain is expected tomorrow which will turn everything to ice! So it may a bit of time before I can follow through.
