I retired from my career as a medical transcriptionist in 2008, and now work in the Foster Grandparent program, donating 20 hours per week at a local elementary school, primarily working with children in grades 3-5. I love helping the children find joy and satisfaction in learning and nurturing their innate desire to do well. I relish the opportunity Foster Grandparenting affords in developing trusting relationships with children from a wide social spectrum.
I was so excited to be introduced to Find-A-Grave by my friend Kathy. It has been a source of great joy to me to find so many ancestors on this site. The information is priceless as it has helped me complete my family genealogy. It has likewise been a tremendous thrill to hear from others I have helped, in some small way, to complete their family circles as well. I believe searching out our kindred dead is a great and worthy work.
Schoepke August Ferdinand Schoepke and Charlotte Louisa Tischer Schoepke are my great great grandparents. They were married 28 Oct 1865 in Bear Creek, Waupaca, Wisconsin. The town of Schoepke in Oneida County, Wisconsin was named after August.
Sheopkie Hi there, if you aren't related, would you mind transferring me the Sheopkies 113604737 and 113618139? I've been looking for them for a while now and now I see why I couldn't find them! They are my fiance's family and yes, the name is spelled Schoepke. Don't ask me why it was mispelled here and also for the civil war because it really does seem this is the same person.
RE: David McMillan Sure, I would like them if you kept them! Thank you, adding memorials for the soldiers can be tricky (to me) sometimes because some headstones will just have initials, and it's hard knowing what their first names are without actually doing a little research!
Cloyse (Butch) and John Mishler Thank you, Dodie, for the transfer of brothers Mishler memorials to me. Also thank you for the photos. The clarity of the photo in full screen allows me to see the cross with a peace dove and its inscription, "The earth is full of the goodness of the LORD." What a treat the family left for the rest of us.
Clarence and Elizabeth (Keim) Mishler Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph the headstones of my great-grandparents. I hope to someday go to WI to visit them myself. Your efforts are sure appreciated!
