Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my family history for 25 years. All of my ancestors are of German descent. The majority settled in Saginaw, Sebewaing and Scio Township, Michigan, even though there are family members scattered throughout the world. Genealogy is a never ending journey. That's what makes it so exciting! IT'S ALL IN THE JOURNEY!

RE: Pictures

As you can see, the grave for Sophia is covered with mud and I personally never touch graves. I am hoping that it will wear down over time due to either winter or rain. But at least her name shows through.

If and when I go there, now that winter is coming, I will check their graves every once in a while to see if a better photo can be obtained. Those are from my phone via the app so I may shoot them with my digital cam next time.

RE: george hofmeister
No problem. Would you like me to post the Lillian Rothfuss image even though there is no DOD?

Photo request
Hi Norma,
You have photo request for Lillian Rothfuss at Immanuel Cemetery in Huron County. There is no DOD on her stone. Would you like a photo posted anyway? She is has single flat headstone next to Eli Rothfuss.

Frederick Wurst
Are you relation to Frederick Wurst? His daughter Lydie was my great grandmother. I started working on geneology a couple years ago but am still quite new to it. If you have time, could you email me at
I'm hoping someone with a more experience with this could help me along a little bit. Thanks!

RE: Photos
You are welcome. I have a question. I have three other Hofmeisters (Robert, Franklin and Joan) that do not have memorials. Are you looking for them? And nestled between a couple of Hofmeisters was Lorna R Smith. She doesn't have a memorial either. I believe they were all in Northlawn (Huron County). Those cemeteries seem to run together. If you are interested in them, please let me know and I will send you their dates. Thanks.

Norma I was so excited to find a photo of Mary Ann Fuerst Willy. I am researching the August Willy and Wilhelmina Marquardt family also. My sister in law is a descendant of Conrad J. Willy and Ester Ann Kuhne. You have helped fill in a lot of blanks.
Thank you so much for all your work.

Karla Louise Schairer
Hi, I called the Ft. Bliss Cemetery and was told the records show that Karla is definitely buried there in the same plot as her mother, Margaret. So the reverse side of Margaret's headstone was engraved to add Karla's name and info. Go to the site and check it out. One of the people in the office were kind enough to take the pictures of the revised headstones. So I had added them to Karla's Find A Grave memorial site. If you have any question about the headstones or the information, please call the Ft. bliss National Cemetery. They are very helpful.

Karla Schairer
Hi, I went out yesterday to get a photograph of Karla's headstone. The internet VA site has her listed as buried in section A 58A. On the headstone for A 58 it just has the info for Karl with the reverse side blank. On the headstone A 58A it has Margaret's information with the reverse side of the headstone also blank. I checked many surrounding headstones and did not find Karla. Tomorrow I will call the cemetery and ask about this since the Internet VA site has her as buried there yet her info is not on the headstone.

Barbara Lee Schairer Turkaly
Your listing for Barbara Lee Schairer Turkaly (154284785) maybe in a different cemetery, I see that even though the obit says Forest Lawn in Ann Arbor. Her parents are buried in Forest Hill in Ann Arbor. I have located other Schairer family in Forest Lawn Inn Dexter, but not this person.
