Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a collector of many hobbies including hiking, genealogy, geocaching, knitting, babywearing, home production of everyday items, gardening, and outdoor survival. Due to my tendency to shift hobby focus often, I may take long breaks from graving, but I always respond to messages. Do you think we might have a cousin in common? Let me know!

The surnames I am most interested in are: Acker, Bird, Bradley, Brenner, Burnett, Campbell, Carter, Casstevens, Crisp, Crowder, Fix, Geibel, Gray, Hellinger, Henry, Hess, Humble, Ingerton, Jewett, Jones, Kempf, Kley, Kremer, Loerwald, Massey, Matthews, Moran, Myers, Oaks, Oberhaussen, Otto, Paetzold, Passmore, Pick, Reagor, Reidel, Sargent, Schlosser, Schmitz, Scott, Steinmetz, Tanklersley, Tidwell, Troxel, Walter, Walterscheid, Wheatley, Wiggins, and Zehl.

I live far from any of the places where my family was buried, so I generally am not related to any of the memorials that I have created (the exception is Holy Family Cemetery in Nazareth, TX). Since these are not my own family, I cannot answer any genealogical questions, especially for cemeteries in Iowa and Colorado. I have transferred all memorials I created that are not family to Find a Grave for management. If you want any of these memorials transferred to you, then I suggest contacting Find a Grave.

A note about my photos:
While I respect the decision by others to copyright their volunteer photos and restrict the distribution of their work, I do not copyright my pictures. Any photos that I submit of headstones are free for anyone to use. You may upload them to any webpage you wish, paid or otherwise. You may also publish them freely on your webpages and family history books. You may credit me if you wish (send me a message for my real name), but it is unnecessary.
My primary reason for this is that I am mainly taking pictures of headstones of people who are not in my family. I do this as a gift to those who cannot travel to visit these headstones in person.
Second, I am not a professional photographer; I am not even a good photographer. Despite the shortcomings of my work, I am submitting these photos online because I feel that a bad photo is better than no photo at all. Also many of the headstones are getting so weathered that I very well may be the last person to be able to read the text. On that subject, I will not be offended if you wish to replace any of my photos with a better one.

PLEASE don't use shaving cream on markers! Here is why:

Homers in St Mary's Cem in Groom TX
Are you related to this family?

There is an August and a Hannah at the cemetery with these same dates. Could these be the same people. I don't want to post the pictures is they are not the ones you are looking for.

RE: Nylund photos
I would be happy to help. The weather has improved and I have been able to get out and get photos. Crescent Grove is very near by and I know the staff there well and am familiar with the cemetery so it is easy to take photos there.

RE: Transfers
THANKS for the transfers of my Gerber & more relative Memorials! Of course, I see them as "ours" now, as I do everyone I get a "transfer for maintaining" on! I know what you mean..I have taken so many photos of headstones in Holy Family Cem. over the years, while Mom was living, but just never got them entered. Then someone made the Memorial pages & I knew it had to be done, or all of that work for nothing! So I went there over Labor Day weekend & spent 7 hrs. Monday in 100 degree weather cleaning & taking photos of what I didn't have. (There was enough shade & water, for breaks!) I'd marked my cemetery book & north-south plot pages with little green dots, to only take what I didn't have. As I finished up the north side, I looked for my book & south plots page & it had vanished. I can only assume someone came to visit while I ran to the store & picked it I had to take one of every headstone on the south side. Having done that yourself, I'm sure you know what I mean! I'll be working on getting those edited & entered for you over the next week!

Shaving cream on headstones
Thanks for put that information on your page. Wish it could be more visible since I know several people that do use that method.

RE: Your Nazareth Cem. project
Thanks! I totally understand! I'm also related to most of the families in Nazareth in one way or another. You already have much info on the Ackers, so I can add what photos I can, if that's what you prefer. I didn't realize you were their relative, too! I will be directing my Jost-Acker NJ & KY relatives to see those, & I'm sure they will love visiting the Memorials!

Your Nazareth Cem. project
Hi! I, too, have many relatives in Nazareth as my parents/Grandparents are from there. (Gerber/Sueper/Dirks/Stork/etc. I've been trying to add pictures of the many headstones I've taken & will try to get one for all Memorials soon. I'm related to the Jost/Acker O'Rourke family in NJ/ I'm wondering who you are! (Jake Jost is my Dirks cousin.) There is a Walterschied family North of Naz, & there are Paetzold & Loerwald's around. In the MN. family history I've studied, there are the names Steinmetz & Schmitz. I can check those further, if you are interested.

RE: Frank Walterscheid
Actually I Central Texas and was here working and thought that I would help someone out. I can email you a copy of the headstone if you'd like.
