Bio Photo The addition of Memorials, at the Church of the Incarnation Cemetery Memorial Garden, are prepared to honor the departed souls, and in honor for families, friends and parishioners. This is my Tribute for my Mom, Patricia Helen "Tricia" Knapp Hetzler.

Veterans, thank you for your service. Open my flag to see related veterans I found.

A FindAGrave Link: Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church Cemetery, a cemetery I have taken to see that photos are completed for each memorial, and, that genealogy is done to link them to their ancestors and descendant memorial. NOTE: The Following Link Is To My Ancestry Tree For The Cemetery And An Ancestry Membership, or An Invitation, Is Needed To Access. Ask Me For An Invitation If Needed And One May Be Sent To Your Provided Email. Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church Cemetery.

Hello, Glad to meet you. I am on call for memorial photos. I live in Weddington, NC (Union County) This site has been great, as I seem to make new friends and meet many cousins that I may have not known otherwise. My hobbies include photography and genealogy, this site has my interest on both of these.

Family ancestor lines keep expanding and I keep learning history. This is a journey. Listen to the stories they have. A brief detour about ancestors discovered.

They are family members.
They are
cattle ranchers,
Horse Brokers Union Army needed many!,
locomotive engineers,
household mothers and fathers,
stone masons,
iron workers,
Foundry Owner,
ice merchants,
builders, developers, realtors,

Unknowingly, I lived places ancestors had previously settled. A 3rd Great grandfather had emigrated from Bavaria, Germany to Rochester, N. Y., where I was born. Another Third Great grandfather emigrated from Saarland Germany to Steuben County, N.Y., near where I went to college.

A 6th Great grandfather lived and died in Addison, Vermont, 35 miles line of sight from where our three children were born and raised in Brookfield, VT. The builder of that home was a veteran of the War of 1812. The home was built prior to prior to 1800, the timbers were first growth Spruce, Ash and Maple. Beams over 40-FT, boards wider than 42-IN. Its first owner had moved from Connecticut in 1820, leaving the County my maternal ancestors lived.

My 10th Great grandfather settled Stamford prior to 1680. Even now, where I live in the Carolina, I learn of a Grand Aunt having lived in Hendersonville, nearer our present home in the Carolinas. The education continues with military heroics.

Learning a 7th Great grandfather was KIA on board on Lake Erie during the French and Indian War in 1756, seeing many ancestors with service in the Revolutionary War. A 5th Great grand uncle, Joseph Turner, a Revolutionary War Veteran is buried in Fort Ann, NY at the Blossom Farm Cemetery. More, reviewing ancestors pension papers for the War of 1812.

Reading service records of 2nd Great grandfather who served in the Civil War, along side his brother Jacob, who were at Appomattox, April 9, 1865 . Hearing from a Great niece of his who has the sabre he used. The opportunity to hold a Great grandfather's military discharge orders from the Spanish American War.

Opportunity to read commendations of a Father-In-Law's service, Memorial# 107185570, in WW II during his 4 years and 4 months service from Northern Africa through Italy and finishes the campaign in Eastern Germany.

Meeting a cousin whose Uncle served WW I and WWII as a Medical Doctor. Learning of the citations of ancestors' received during the Korean War. Not to ignore recent military heroes.

Last Checked only 46 of my 2,105 suggested "edits" sent (family lineage) have been declined. Thank You.

When someone says they are a Tenth generation descendant, you may ask them who their other 1,023 8th Great grandparents are. ; ). We have eight 1st Great grandparents, 256 6th Great grandparents and 4,096 10th Great grand parents. Last report I have located memorials for 16 of my 10th Great grandparents (13th Generation).

RE: Memorial# 115012605
He is the husband of a 3x removed cousin. Thru my great grandmother's Emmersons. All the census and marriage records show *David*, and descendants have *Wilson*, I do not need the transfer, a closer relative may ask for it.
Thanks for creating his and Mary's memorials. Please let me know if I can be helpful.

John Saunders 1784 or 1748
I believe you are correct that the date should read 1748 and I have corrected it.

RE: Schuster transfers

Many of the memorials I generate are based on obituaries stumbled upon while researching old periodicals, rather than a genealogical connection.

Unfortunately I've nothing else at hand to further assist your research.
