Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please do not place Death Certificates on memorials I have created. I find it distasteful and disrespectful to the family.

Most of the people I have entered into Find A Grave are not my relatives nor did I know them. If you would like any of the memorials I have created let me know and I'll probably transfer them to you if they aren't my relatives.

A proud member of One Foot In The Grave.

The following link will display all of the cemeteries in Find A Grave that are in Harris County, Texas. From there you can get to any county and state to see their cemeteries.

A site to calculate the Date of Birth from headstones when age at death is given -

Please don't leave me a message if there is no way to reply to you. I feel that this is a very rude thing to do and in the future such messages will be ignored and deleted.

RE: Baby Boy Wehlmann
Hi Bruce,
I did not see your message when I placed the death certificate. I was only trying to provide proof of the discrepancy for the dates.
I have removed it, but please know that no disrespect was meant.
I photographed the entire cemetery and have been adding many photos and a lot of missing data, I did not read your bio prior.

My Sincerest apologies,

RE: Charles Engler
Thanks for the edits Bruce!

Perry kept in contact with his Boyce cousins here and several of them eventually retired to Brownsville, all widows. Until I was contacted by one of Perry's sister Helen's descendants, I wondered how in the world these ladies from upstate NY ended up practically in Mexico at the end of their lives, but now it all makes sense.

I hope you have a good weekend,

RE: Charles Engler
Hi Bruce,

Charles Engler is a distant relative, my great-grandmother's brother George Spencer married Charles' sister Helen. Charles' Texas death certificate indicates that Peter Engler was his dad and that he was born in Orleans County, NY. Feb 20, 1860, and that both of his parents were born in Germany. His name is listed as Charles Perry Engler. The 1860 federal census lists him in Kendall, Orleans, NY in June as being 4 months old, his parents were Peter and Mary C Engler, he is listed as "Peter". In the 1865 NY census he is with his parents, age 5, listed as Peter Engler, Kendall, NY. In the 1875 NY census he is found with his parents on the same farm, but as "Perry" to distinguish him from his dad, and is listed as being born in 1860 in Orleans county, NY, his parents being born in Prussia. In 1880 he is still in Kendall, bur working as a hired hand on the nearby James Ireland farm, born in NY and his parents in Prussia. By 1900 he has moved to Ohio, birth listed as NY, married to Sarah with son Raymond, parents born in Germany, and name spelled "Ingler", he works for the railroad. By 1910 he is still a RR guy, married to Sarah with son Raymond but living in Illinois, born Ny, parents in Germany, but name Charles P Engler. By 1930 he has arrived in Texas with Sarah, listed as Chas. P Engler, born 1860, NY , parents in Germany and perversely listed as "Mexican" for race??? Still in TX in 1940, with Sarah as Charles P Engler, born NY in 1860. His Texas death index lists him as Charles Perry Engler in 1944.

What info do you have concerning his parents?

Hope you are safe from the storm,

Pearl Lannen
Disregard my previous message. I did a bit of research and realized that the Pearl in Texas was incorrectly linked to Thomas Lannen. Thanks for catching this!

Pearl Geneva Jones Lannen
Hi Bruce ~ I'm going to approve your edit for Pearl Lannen, but I want to make sure that I understand -- is the marker in Texas a cenotaph? Is her correct death date 8 October 1958, and the marker in Texas is incorrect? I know that some people do have duplicate markers in different cemeteries, but the death date is confusing me. Just want to make sure Pearl Jones and Pearl Lannen are one and the same. Thanks!

It has been corrected, sorry for the error.

Hannah was my great, grandmother, and the daughter of Aaron Pybus from Liverton, Yorkshire, England, and Elizabeth (Baxter) Pybus of Manchester, England.

I appreciate the wonderful, remarkable job you have done, but I would like to have my Shoultz family transferred to me so I can add more details of their remarkable history!

If this is acceptable. I will provide more details.
Thank you very much!
