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!

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.

RE: Karla Schairer
Hi, I'm sorry about the picture mix up. I got pictures for Karl and Margaret Schairer but not Karla. Karl is in plot 58 and Margaret is in plot 58A. So I guess Karla is in the same plot with Margaret and her information will be on the other side of Margaret's headstone. I'll be going out soon and will add the picture to Karla's memorial and email you when I do. Again, I'm sorry for the mix up.

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.

...a family tree on Ancestry lists Christina's nick name as "Dena."

RE: Schairer
Your exactly correct, Christina Maria was "Dena" and I found her memorial on F.A.G.; when I get home I'll upload her photo which is of her, her sister Amanda, and two "Rauchenberger daughters." I have no idea how Rauchenberger fits into the family.

RE: Schairer
Yeah, I just saw the family connection to Washington myself, Herman's son Neil was an electrical engineer there; they must have come from Neil's estate. I'm hoping to find a direct descendants of Herman and Amanda who would be interested in having the photos, I may have found someone last night and am awaiting a reply.

Good hunting,

Frey-Schairer Photos
Hi. While walking around a flea market near Washington D.C. on Saturday I found a group of five photos associated with Johann Herman Schairer and his wife, Amanda Frey. With the information on the reverse of the photos and the Ann Arbor, Michigan photography I was able to identify the subjects. Scans of the photos were uploaded to the memorials of Herman, Amanda, and Amanda's brother Elmer J. Frey. The fifth picture I have is of Amanda and her sister "Dena," but I haven't located Dena's F.A.G. memorial to upload the picture. How are you related to the family, if at all, I noticed you manage many Schairer/Frey memorials? Looking forward to hearing from you.

The Oakes graves are not all on the same plot. I entered the plot number for those I knew, but some I do not know. If I can help you further, please let me know.
