Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a retired teacher from Wisconsin who became interested in genealogy in the fall of 2012. I'm looking forward to learning more about ways to find out information about my ancestors and my husband's ancestors.

I am more than happy to make additions and/or corrections to memorials. Please use the edit key rather than leaving a public message. If you are a relative and would like to have a memorial transferred to you, please submit that request through the edit key as well. If I am not a relative, I will be happy to transfer the memorial to you.

When I take photos at cemeteries, I like to take a wide shot if possible to include other family members. I usually create a caption for the photo saying who is in the photo. To see the caption, just double click on the photo. I also use the abbreviation OSSW (on same stone with) frequently when two or more people share the same stone.

I am granting permission to use any photos that I have taken for any non-commercial use. It would be appreciated if you would acknowledge that the photo came from me. Please feel free to use them on family trees and other websites.


Please check out the virtual cemeteries that I have been working on. If you have any information that you would like to share with me, please use the edit key or send me a public message through Find A Grave.

I enjoy photographing entire cemeteries, creating new memorials, and adding photos to existing memorials. I try to do a quick search to see if I can document family relationships. Before I go on to the next cemetery, I try to make sure that duplicate memorials have been removed and all memorials are actually in the correct cemetery (when possible).

Listed below are the cemeteries I have completed so far by county. The first year listed is the year I photographed the entire cemetery. The second year, if listed, is the year I last walked through the entire cemetery again looking for updates.

Note: 99.9% of all Find A Grave contributors are wonderful people. However, there are a few people who operate outside of the Find A Grave guidelines. There are some people who create memorials for relatives and list them as "burial unknown". They wait for photo volunteers like me to find their relatives and create memorials for them in a given cemetery. Then after the relative is found, the person sends a request to remove the "duplicate" record. This has happened to me on more than one occasion! Please don't do this to Find A Grave contributors who work hard walking local cemeteries and taking countless photos.

If I happen to find one of your relatives you have been looking for, please send me a thank you through the edit key, remove your memorial, and request a transfer. I will be more than happy to honor your request. I might even be willing to move my photos over to your memorial and delete mine under certain circumstances.

Marsh family
47971100 this is my member number, I am so very sorry it took me so long to get back to you. Please forgive me. I believe I wanted to manage Rozilla Marsh and her family so if you wouldn't mind that would be great. I can connect her mother to her mother and father. Again thanks so much.

Messersmith # 90485586
Hi Janet,

You posted a headstone photo to memorial # 90485586. The memorial does not list a given name or a birthdate. The birthdate is shown on your photo but I can't enlarge it enough to read. I was wondering if you could. I believe this memorial is for Christopher Messersmith who was born in 1809. He was the son of Andrew Messersmith, memorial # 89368506. The headstone photos on both memorials seem to be in the same location, perhaps side by side. Do you know?

Best regards,
Debbie Z

Thanks, Janet! If you could remove your picture of the headstone? I had already took one & don't really need two, you know? It's a nice picture, don't get me wrong! :-)

Hi again. Sorry to bug you but you got to my Great Uncle August Schultz in Neshkoro's space faster I than I did. Not trying to be mean or anything, but could you maybe transfer this Memorial page to me so I can take care of it?

Marsh Family
I was wondering if you are related to the Marsh Family??? If you are or are not please let me know. I do have some information on Alonzo Marsh and no he isn't Albert L Marsh. Albert was married to Rozilla Marsh. Also, Alonzo was in the Civil War and have his papers which isn't much. He was still alive in 1864, married and ended up in Iowa.

RE: Anna S. Lindekugel # 141425481
It's quite confusing, since Johann Gottlieb married at least twice, but three times at his age?

So, I guess there is some mix-up in the records. I made a mistake myself: the 1870 census of Watertown, Jefferson Co., has Sophia Lindekugel, 75 yrs, living with her son-in-law's family: Gottlieb Hartwig.

I can also confirm these dates:

Dorothea Sophia Orlowsky, * 13 Aug 1821 in Germany
Johann Gottlieb Lindekugel, * 15 Oct 1820 in Germany
Gottlieb Lindekugel, * ca. 1783, + 27 Mar 1832 in Germany
Anna Sophie Mόller, * ca. 1788 in Germany

That's all I know for certain!

OK, now I got it and it can be corrected at (no transcription error):

Anna S. Lindekugel, Frau von G.

is the MOTHER of

Johann Gottlieb Lindekugel

Her spouse was Gottlieb Lindekugel, who already died in 1832 back in in Germany. Until her death she lived with her son Johann Gottlieb and his family in Wisconsin.

Actually, you might have found something! A note 'possible transcription error' will do, I guess.

It seems like they mixed up Gottlieb's wife (Dorothea Sophie Orlowsky, born Aug 13, 1821) and his mother (Anna Sophie Mόller, born 1788). So far, I could never find any information about Anna after the census of 1870 - that's a new trace!
