Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy family history and when I discovered Find a Grave I was quite thrilled. Unfortunately none of my relatives were posted.

My mission was to get my relatives posted and while I was at it I posted the people around my relatives. I keep expanding the circle hoping the effort will help someone.

If you see your relative I would be happy to transfer management to you(except for my immediate family). Please don't assume that they are my family if they are linked to spouses or children. If I am sure they are related I link them.

I am not fussy about copyrights to my pictures posted on find a grave. Please feel free to copy and use them as you see fit. Not only is this site for the memory of loved ones, but it is also used to help others find their ancestors. Please feel free to post picture, death certificates, military records or any information you can provide. We are all in this together.

RE: Beatrice Ackerman
Thanks for the info. After we get home from our daughters around the 8th, I'll see about contacting the diocese and see what they can tell me. The death certificate says she was 87 (about 1820) but all the census reports have her around 1827 as a birth year. But at least I do know what cemetery she is buried in which is also where her daughter-in-law's family is. Every little tidbit helps in putting the puzzle together.

RE: Beatrice Ackerman
I appreciate it. Wish I could find details on Barbara Pearson Ackerman. Have not been able to find any trace of parents except that they were in Bavaria. I have census records up in Butler County and a death certificate with no info. Date of birth unknown, parents unknown. She lived most of her life up in Clearfield, Butler County, PA. Thanks. Penny

RE: Beatrice Ackerman
Thanks Janet. My other great grandmother was also buried at St Mary's Lawrenceville. She is Barbara Pearson Ackerman, #138198533. She and her husband Phillip Ackerman lived in Beaver county which is where my grandfather Daniel Oscar Ackerman was born and where Phillip died. After his death Barbara went to Pittsburg to live with her daughter Annie and son-in-law Walter Lewis who supplied the info for the death certificate. Unfortunately he did not know her parents names and so we are stuck on Barbara Pearson. She was living with them in the 1900 census. Would really appreciate it if you would transfer Barbara Pearson Ackerman and Beatrice Ackerman #126359737 to me. I requested a picture of the headstone for Barbara Pearson Ackerman, but the volunteer said that she was not where the memorial said it should be. Would you know anything about that? Penny

Beatrice Ackerman
Thanks for editing the info for Beatrice. She was one of my biggest finds. My dad always said that my grandmother gave birth to 12 children and raised 10 to adulthood. We only had 11 of these 12 children. My grandmother's family is the Regan family and I got a picture of the headstone for the Regan family in St Mary's Cemetery Lawrenceville and on that headstone was Beatrice Ackerman. I knew in my heart that she had to be the missing child, but then to prove it. We were able to get a death certificate from the Carnegie Melon Library and it proved that she was indeed the child of Mary Agnes and Daniel Oscar Ackerman (my grandparents). There is one sibling missing on the site, because it is waiting for person maintaining the site to update the edits. Thanks so very much. Penny Ackerman Friedrichsen

Hi, thank you so much for finding Fidelia's marker, photographing it and getting it posted. I really appreciate it. She is my great, great, great grand-mother.

RE: Anna Mary Heyl
Thanks for the information. I have made the correction. I cannot recall where that information originally came from other then a random newspaper notice. I found a listing of burials for that cemetery and added a few more of the Heyl family.
Have A Great Day, Ian

RE: Thomas Cusack
I have transcribed Saint John the Evangelist Cemetery in Lambertville from the stones on the ground in the cemetery. I have also been working with the church historian to resolve questions and fill in missing blanks. I work from the facts that I can verify and see.

I know for a fact that there is not a cemetery of this name in Somerset county NJ and will be submitting information to Find A Grave to delete this cemetery location. I will also be recommending that the memorials at this location be changed to location unknown. I would think that you would rather have this memorial in a Lambertville location than in "location unknown", but the choice is yours.

Have a great day.

Hi! This is Jeff Donaldson again. I hope to hear from you soon. This could be what I have been looking for years about Samuel Donaldson. This has been a brick wall for years. (I Peter 5:7)
