Bio and Links
Bio Photo We are all getting older and some of us are pursuing other goals, TIME becomes GOLD. I welcome messages but IF YOU WANT AN EDIT or TRANSFER- Please, properly submit requests-that is, those made using the sixth Edit option on the top right of a memorial.
I don't mind helping others but if I have to look up a Mary Smith from unnamed cemetery and then YOUR ID gold.
I will be more than glad to transfer any memorial I am not directly related to.
Many people do not understand our passion for recording graves and cemeteries.
I try to record information correctly, but I make many mistakes. Thank you for spotting them and letting me know.
You may use my photos of markers but NOT for financial gain or publication unless you request first. DO NOT use my photos of people without a request.
I submit memorial of those who have gone before us as an honor, a memory to be cherish. I do not wish to hurt or offend. I am drawn to veterans graves, graves of children and unusual gravestones. Findagrave allows me to visit my family's graves within the privacy of my home.
Lost cemeteries and fallen, worn stones need to be recorded for those who follow, searching for their ancestors. If I have helped one person on their quest, I will feel this has not been in vain.

RE: Germania Cemetery Missouri
Good to hear from you. The main reason I became a volunteer for find-a-grave was similar to your story. My husband's grandmother (Martha Buck Smith) died in Arkansas at the state hospital. Their records all were destroyed in a fire years ago and we have never been able to find when she died or where she is buried. Believe me we have made lots of trips to Little Rock and other places and have not found her yet. In our research we came up with 3 possibilities: she lies under the old hospital grounds in Little Rock; she lies in the new hospital grounds in Benton, Ark. with un-marked graves and we went there to view this area; and last she could be under the Wilbur Mills Free Way in Little Rock as they took part of the hospital grounds to build that many years ago. There is even a monument near it in memory of hundreds of people. So we placed a stone in memory of her next to her husband in a little quaint cemetery called Oak Grove near Hot Springs, Ark. The last date we have of her living was the 1917 military enrollment of two of her sons. They state she was their nearest relative. of course no one in the family remembers for sure the dates but I keep hoping some day a record will pop up. So I really appreciate your quest for your family and am so glad you had an answer. And, as you stated, if I can just help others find their loved one, it will be worth all the effort. Have a great day. Ruth

Thank You
Just read your page and had to send a thank you. You have done so much to help others find graves and I love what you wrote. I have been trying to do what you described and am presently "row walking" St. Mary's Cemetery in Cape Girardeau. It is a pleasure to do that and they take such good care of it, so it is one of the easiest ones I have done. Just took pictures of:
Fred W. Ringer (#179647471) and his wife and was able to link him to your memorial pages for:
Joab Ringer #26462075 and Sarah Eaton Ringer #26542432 at Germania Cemetery. From the pictures, it looks like an interesting one. Thought you might like to know that your work continues. Ruth Smith

I sent you his biography that was printed
in the History of Madison Co Illinois,
I made a typo on one of the children,
he did not have a daughter Louisa with the
2nd wife Christina it was a son Louis.
Hope you can correct when you post.

RE: Ann Mondhink
No, I am not related. I have been working on my partner's genealogy. Ann Eliza Ray is his 1st cousin 4x removed with Susannah Mitts being his 4th great aunt. No other information on the Mondhink surname.

John B Drury
I just saw your notes about them moving my great great grandparents burials. I had no idea that it was done. Here is the info for them.John Baptiste Drury b. 1 Feb 1823 Kaskaskia,Fayette, Illinois d. 10 Apr 1901 Jackson, Sainte Genevieve, Missouri. His wife's name was Desile Eloise Rosalie Boyer b. 17 Apr 1826 in Sainte Genevieve, Missouri, d. 27 Dec 1826 in Bloomsdale, Sainte Genevieve, Missouri. They were married 28 Oct 1852 in Bloomsdale, Sainte Genevieve, Missouri. They were my great grandfathers parents, he was Damase Drury b. 17 July 1853 in Missouri.

John H Theismann
John Robert Theisman Memorial# 113515605 was born to Benedict Theismann and Anna Hoepper on Mar 3 1895 and Died 16 May 1896. Looking at the documents from St. Libouous at confirms this.

There are no documented births for John H Theismann in Mar 1895 at St. Liborous.
The census shows Benedict (Head) Anna (Wife) Bernard, Henry, Carl, John (sons) and Ella (Aldehide - Daughter)
Bernard Henry Memorial# 44063759
Johann Heinrich Memorial# 47783628
John H Memorial# 44063825
Carl Heinrich Memorial# 44063768
(Ella) Adelheid Memorial# 132953886

Unless Benedict and Anna had Twins (John Robert and John H) on 3 Mar 1895 there must be an error.

But even Carls DOB is wrong on the Census, he was born Dec 1897 not John H.

This is very confusing.
If you are local (I'm in So. Calif) perhaps on-site verification with the church
