Bio Photo My Tribute for my Mom, Patricia Helen "Tricia" Knapp Hetzler, entries for Memorial Garden - Church Of The Incarnation, honoring departed souls, families, friends and parishioners. Uploads are completed Dec 7, 2016. Thank you Christina for assistance.

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

A FindAGrave Link: Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church Cemetery, I have taken to see that photos are completed for each memorial, genealogy links researched for their ancestors and descendants. NOTE: The Following Link Is To My Ancestry Tree For The Cemetery, An Ancestry Membership Is Needed To Access or, Ask Me For An Invitation If Needed, I will Send one. 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.

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 2,229 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# 154325491
Thank you for the kind words, Greg. I do endeavor provide a wider visual, when possible. On the converse, while I posted a wide shot of Frank B.'s grave (because I had one) I will go back and shoot his headstone alone, next time I'm out there. BTW, my dad was a grocer!

RE: Memorial Gardens
That is very touching, Greg, and thank you for sharing it with me. It makes what we do all worthwhile.

I just sent you an email with some additional thoughts.

I disagree with your death date for Elizabeth. As church record for her specifically says she died on 7 Feb 1959 and buried 11 Feb 1959 age 73 years.
I am seriously starting to doubt he maiden name of Kuhn. Info doesn't fit.

You are more than welcome Greg .... I did a lot of records in Holy Ghost when I walked it in 2006. I think most of the record are there now. :-)
