Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi,
Thanks for visiting. I am starting some family pages so that we can keep them alive in our memories.

Thank you to all of the great people who have fulfilled my photo requests or helped me out with time or photos. I am particularly thankful to Victor Bergman of Celina for his help as well as the many kind and generous volunteers from Mercer and Auglaise Counties. I live FAR from you and I wouldn't be very far in my quest to document family members without your help.

Thanks to the person who posted my grandparents. You really inspired me to return that favor whenever I can.

Many of the old photos or information I post are from boxes I found in the effects of relatives who are no longer with us. There is a good chance that if I posted a photo of your relative or loved one I either knew them or can give you some additional information +/- photos of that person, just ask.

If you have photos to share, I am always interested in seeing them. My philosophy is that "when you know a person's face, you know at least a little bit of their story."

If you are going to use any of my photos on or the like, please give me an appropriate citation (yes, that includes you dfjf1216, elaine adamo, SMITHZITA and many more!). Findagrave suggests that it be in this format: Bio Author. "John Doe". Find A Grave. 6-1-2008.

Finally, if there is one thing that every visitor to findagrave should take away its this-- even if it cost more, buy the GRANITE stone!

Dr. Alois Willke
Thanks so much for the reference to Dr. Willke. I added it to the memorial page just as you had noted. It gives me a clue to a mystery in my family tree - my mother (who is related to the Willke's) mentioned a relative who was a nun at the convent at Mary Stein. I haven't been able to track her down. She went by "Sister Coletta" and was born abt 1875.

Kathrina Striecker
Hi. I got your email regarding Kathrina (111442162) and wrote back but the email bounced back to me.

So I'll let you know what I wrote here, in case you didn't get the email.

I checked the cemetery book I got her information from and it is the same as I have on her memorial. The cemetery book was compiled in 1992 and I have seen some mistakes in it compared to the memorials on find a grave. In the book, her name is listed between "R. Meyer (no date)" and "W. Meyer (no date)". I'm not sure if that is how they are buried in the cemetery or not. Unfortunately, this book does not have the burials listed by row or plot.

Hope this helps you. If you have her photo, and if you think it is right, you can add the photo. Thank you.

RE: Drees Graves
Yes, I can expound. The gravesite at location Row 9, Grave 280 contains a double grave of twins who died within 10 days of each other. They are Anna Elisabeth Drees (born July 04, 1874 and died January 08, 1875 - memorial# 102557783), and her sister Maria Agnes Drees (born July 04, 1874 and died January 18, 1875 - memorial# 101701734). On your memorial, you have Maria Anna Drees (born Jan 06, 1802 and died February 10, 1874 - memorial# 101701837), who is buried in location Row 9, Grave 284 as one of the two inhabitants of the double grave at location Row 9, Grave 280. I was saying that you can see on the double grave that the death dates are Jan 08 and Jan 18, as the church records indicate for the twins. The photo that I took at location 284 was a broken stone, not a double stone. See if what I am saying makes sense.

Maria Anna Drees (1802-1874)
Dear Chronicler,

I believe the photos you have posted for Maria Anna Drees are actually for 2 other Drees girls, Anna Elizabeth and Maria Agnes Drees. They appear to be twins who died within 10 days of each other. If you look at the names and death dates, they align with what St. Augustine's has for the twins. Also, that location is Row 9, Grave 280.

I was about to upload the "stone" at Row 9, Grave 284 and found your photos already posted. Sadly, the stone for 284 is just a broken base.

Mary Berting
Dear Chronicler,

I had this one still on my hard drive from when I went up to Minster in August. I have been too busy to continue with uploading the photos. Sadly, this is all that is left of Mary Berting's stone. Hers, and the one next to her (Eliz Berting), are both broken and gone.

Thank you for the photos of Cecelia and Peter Jacobs! I appreciate the time you took to get them!

Parents are linked to the children through the child's memorial, not the parent's.

This is a new grave from just a few months ago. There is no stone placed as her marker yet. You may want to request it again at a later date. I hope this helps your search.
