Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love Genealogy! I love it so much, I actually spend time doing family research for other people in my spare? time. I've been doing it for many years and this internet stuff really blows me away. My husband is somewhat engaged but he mostly lets me indulge in my hobby alone.

Every day I learn something new. Not just about my family, but also about our country, and what pioneering spirits our ancestors had to settle and tame this beautiful and once very wild place. I try to research the history of each place I come to so that I can get a feel of what my ancestors were faced with and their daily life. It has really made me appreciate them more and has renewed my pride in the wonderful country they built.

I discovered Find-A-Grave while trying to work with the Tombstone Project on USGenWeb, but it didn't seem to take off too well. Some states, like Iowa & Illinois for a couple, have actually published their burial lists on line. What a find!! While Find A Grave can be a great Genealogy resource, let's not forget the main purpose is to document the burial sites of our people, i.e. record the location and photograph the headstones when possible. So many cemeteries have already disappeared and every day we lose a little more.

Our family names are: Ammeling, Barron, Beabout/Bebout/Beebout, Becker, Beekman, Befort, Benner/Bender/Binder, Berens, Blatter, Blum, Bohannon, Bohm, Bohmer, Boughton, Brodbeck, Brungardt, Cheetham, Chriswell, Cilplinger, Clark, Cobb, Cook, Cox, De Snick, Dechant, Deibler, Dicks, Doerfler, Doland, Doll, Donven, Doppler, Dreiling/Dreilingk, Duck, Eschelbacher, Eschenbrenner, Fedley, Fink, Finley, Fischer, Fisher, Fissner, Forsyth/Forsythe, Frank, Gehrig, Goetz, Gowensbach, Griffin, Haffner/Heffner, Harlan/Harland, Hauer, Haus, Heil, Henneigh/Hennigh, Hill, Hoffman, Hoope, Jamison, Jans, Jesel, Jones, Jund, Kaiser, Kauffman, Kendall, Kirke, Klipphan, Knoden, Knox, Kohl, Konig, Kramer/Cramer, Krebs, Labattie, Lambert, Lang/Lange, Lash/Loesch/Losch, Latheimer, Laubenheimer, Lichtenstern, Lightburn, Linenberger, Ludlum, Maddock, Mahr, Mamer, Markle/Mercklen/Merkel/Merkle/Merklin, Marshall, Maser, Mattingly, Mays, McElroy/McAlroy, McGrew, Mellinger, Miller, Moer, Moll, Molter, Montgomery, Moore, Mortlett, Mueller/Muller, Nebergall, Newberry, Nichols, O'Hara, Otter, Peace/Pease/Piess, Pfister, Pooley, Poppleman, Ray/Reah, Reger, Reuzel, Rhem, Riedel, Ruder, Schad, Schmidt, Schumacher, Schump, Seiler/Snyder, Shupp, Smith, Snook, Soars, Sprenger, Stacher/Stecher, Switzer, Taylor, Thaner, Thompson, Thurman, Trabaugh/Trarbach, Tweedell, Van Kinderen/Verkinderen, Waddington, Wagner, Wanger/Wenger, Wartmann, Weaver, Wilson, Wolffskehl/ Wolfkiel/ Wolfkill/ Wolfskiehl…. and many more.

Find-A-Grave is a great site. I'm not a cemetery walker, however, if I can be of service research wise, please let me know.

The photo is of my 2nd great-aunt, Ethel Frances Ludlum, who died when she was only seventeen. I love her outfit. Have you ever seen such a large bow?!
Blessings to all the wonderful volunteers who walk the cemeteries to take photos.

I was looking at my mother's "site" and saw your name and the flowers you left for her. Thank you. I also reviewed some of the names in your biography. I found it interesting that a lot of the names are in my family - Brungardt, Dreiling, Duck, Linenberger, Riedel, and Wagner (Wagner is on my Dad's side of the family and found her on Family Tree DNA. She lives in Germany and we correspond on a regular basis). Thursday I am going out of town to meet with several of my cousins - Dreiling and Brungardt. I am going to show them your information and see if any of them will recognize your name. I also plan to see an uncle (Dreiling), who is in his 90's and I will mention your name to him also. Thank you for the good work you do. Very much appreciated.

I noticed that you left flowers for Eunice Randle Martell and her husband, Ivan Martell. I'm researching Eunice's mother, and I wonder if you have any connection to the family?
Thank you!
