Bio and Links
Bio Photo My quest to learn more about my ancestors began as a teenager. My great-grandmother had a book about her Drinkard family, which was written by her first cousin. It was so interesting I was inspired to learn more about my other ancestors. Some lines I knew very little about. The journey continues.

Along the way, I also come across records for people not related. I enjoy sharing my family and other records at Find A Grave. It is such a great website!

The above photo was taken in 2005 when I attended an Adams Family Reunion in Wisconsin. Our ancestors, Henry Adams and Margaretha Misslich, immigrated from Germany in 1848 and settled in Waukesha County, Wisconsin. Henry was born in 1818 at Enzen, Zuelpich, Rhineland, Germany.

Please use the 'Edit' tab for additions, corrections and transfer requests. Thank you.

The main lines I am researching are Gove, Hengell, Stowell, Drinkard, Kaus, Jostes, Collins and Vilmur.

RE: Vilmure
Hello Gloria, You are very welcome. Was Mr. Vilmure a golfer by any chance? There were numerous golf balls near his gravesite.

David Gingrich #24402123
Hi Gloria,
This David Gingrich is not the son of John W. Gingrich buried in the Mennonite Cemetery at Roseland, Adams County, NE. Both, David and John W are the sons of Henry Gingrich and Elizabeth Garman Gingrich both buried in the same cemetery.

Some how he is shown as the son of John W Gingrich on Find A Grave and this is in error.

RE: Ellwart, Hyman, Leuer
Hi're welcome. In case you didn't notice, I also added a memorial photo for John F. Elkhart that you hadn't asked for. Also, next to the Leuer grave marker is another Leuer grave. It is for Albert T. and Alta L. Related? Roscoe

RE: Mary Jostes
We also found a new stone just like Bertha Jostes for Elizabeth Jostes 1890-1892. If this is the same person as Mary, would you like the new stone photograph on her page also?

The date on the stone is 1878 for William Henry Jostes. Sorry for the dirty stone I cleaned it the best I could.

RE: Margaret Wilson
You are very welcome, Gloria! She was listed as Margaret McReynolds in the Mills County Cemetery Book (1983), and I did not realize I had captured your request as I went through the rows. But I'm so happy I did!
