Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi,
I started out doing this for family and friends and have expanded it to others also. I love doing the research. If I have made any errors or you want anything added or changed please feel free to email me!

I am researching the Kappelman's (Kappelmann's), Holmes, Kersbergen's, Lasschuit's, Wichhart's, Rohde's, Gates, Mikesell's, McGauvran's.

Please use the edit tab and SAC to ask for a transfer or update.

Please use the edit tab on the memorial page for corrections, additions or transfers .

Find-A-Grave Policy on Transfers

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations, this would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not want to make the transfer. You may certainly request the transfer of memorials beyond the four generations, but the original contributor may choose not to transfer (the original contributor should make any corrections and add any addional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses). Bulk surname requests should not be made.

Please take a moment and visit my beautiful mother Katherine Kersbergen

Thank you for leaving her flowers.


Please take a moment and visit my handsome nephew Frazier Rohde

Thank you for leaving Frazier flowers.


***PLEASE NOTE: "Real life" is taking up a lot of my time lately, so please understand if it takes me days or even weeks to respond to you. Thank you! :)***

hi again. I have spoken to about my issue, they will follow-up on their end. I have contacted you before about this issue.

Re: Irene Louella Brownell, you show her child as James W. Jackson. that is incorrect. he is my father, his mother is Gladys Irene Searls-Jackson-Adams-Brownell. no relation to Irene L. Brownell. Please remove my father from Irenes Find a Grave. also, when you click on James W Jackson you show him buried at Pioneer Cemetary. my father is buried at Montecito Memorial Cemetary in Loma Linda.

also, Joseph C Jackson WAS my dads dad, however Joseph was NOT married to Irene Louelle. Joseph was married to Gladys Irene Searls my grandmother.

also, my dad James W Jckson was born 1924, Irene L was born 1940.

some how, some way Irene Louella Brownell entered my ancestry, a huge mistake in transcribing.

even though my grandmother, Gladys Irene Searls did marry George L. Brownell, there is NO relationship. if you could contact me personally I would be grateful for the chance to explain further. thank you.

RE: Find A Grave # 9216947
I'm sorry. I was off on name & number. Look at
92169147 Utahna Collen Hardy Heap.

2)Look at the name of her parents.
3)Note that you have Eliza Banks Hardy as her mother.
4)Now click on her father, Luther Floyd Hardy.
5)Note, it shows HIS mother is Eliza Banks Hardy.

Maybe I'm reading this wrong.

Email me at if you can.

Leo Seibert Transfer Request
Hi, Cindy ... About two months ago, I used the edits tab to send a transfer request for my grandfather's memorial. I suspect it did not go through. Are you O.K. with transferring memorial number 21401840? Thank you for your consideration, Latham Seibert (member # 47515331).

For the above person, Utahna Colleen Hardy, you listed her grandmother as her mother. I think you want to change it to Donnetta Works.

Mahalo for all the work you are doing.

Rohde family
I see you maintain some Rohde memorials, some of which are distant cousins and also my 4x great granparents Christlieb and Henriette Rohde. Would love to know if/how you are related so I can get the info added to my tree.

RE: My Mom, Inez Kersbergen
Cindy, I've been out of commission following several falls and their debilitating outcomes, beginning Christmas Day, with two others, more recently. I don't want to say more publicly and very much appreciate your efforts to make sense of what I suggested before re. "Schwartz" and also her "father" (John Drew). Would you be willing, please, to try to get in touch w/me again? A better option re. E-mail is my G-mail address is as follows:

Sorry I've been so hard to contact. Thanks and hugs, Sandy (Sandra Kersbergen Sankey)

Jacob Ward #21402827
Some thoughts about the parents of Martha "Mattie" Ward Reed. Michigan Marriage Records have Jacob Ward's marriage to Miss Minnick Nov. 2, 1865 in Handy Twp., Livingston Co., MI. Michigan Death Records of both David and Freaman Ward, brothers of Mattie, list parents as Jacob Ward and Elizabeth Minnick. Elizabeth Minnick was the daughter of DAVID Minnick and her eldest sister MARTHA was married to John KIME, and their son Samuel Kime's land bordered the land of Jacob Ward in Gratiot Co., MI. On Reed marriage information St. Louis is in Gratiot Co., MI. not Shiawassee and Kimer or Kimes name may have come from confusion of the relationship of the Kime relatives when license was applied for in Shiawassee Co., where Joseph Reed was a resident of the town of Corunna at the time.

Thank you for leaving the flowers for my son, Howard, and the message. It gave me hope that he will not be forgotten.

Thank you for your desire to include my grandfather among those in Rialto Cemetery who are honored for their military service on Memorial Day. I have long been bothered by the fact that his military service was not acknowledged in the past. I always intended to notify the city about it, but never got around to it.
