Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have now been a member of findagrave for quite a while and still find it a source of amazing connections and friendships!

My profile was formerly KathyWaitMyers, but I married in June 2015 and have updated it to my new married name. =)

** I wouldn't share photos online if I didn't want to actually SHARE them with my extended family... so feel free to use anything that I add to your collection! I simply request that they be used for personal use, not commercial purposes. Thank you! **

I'm researching my roots and am happy to collaborate if our trees match. I love meeting new cousins!

My WAIT branch goes back to John Waits (1730-1791) and Ann Deloss (1724-1790).

Contrary to popular web belief, John's Mother neither Ann Graves nor Sarah Blake. That was a completely different Richard Waits. This has been disproven through DNA testing, so please think twice if someone's family tree tells you otherwise.

If, on the other hand, someone has proof of who John's parents actually were, I'd love to hear it!

I sometimes take extra photos at cemeteries that I visit, and am happy to transfer them to blood relatives. Please make the request through the EDIT tab on that page. This will send me an email with the person's Grave ID and make it easier to find the person in question. Thanks!

Bryan Anderson
Conrad Schmer
Dear Kathy,

I am researching my paternal grandfather's WWI army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. According to documentation, Conrad Schmer was a member of this unit. This is confirmed by his gravestone. My grandfather's name was Gunder Anderson who was seriously wounded on 9/14/1918.

I'm not exactly sure where I'm going with my project, but I want to eventually publish something. So, with your permission, I would like to use your photograph of the grave of Conrad Schmer (Find A Grave Memorial# 41099086). Please let me know if this would be acceptable.

Thank you, I appreciate your time.

With warm regards,

Bryan Anderson

RE: John M & Christina Kunz of Elmwood NE
I'm glad that you enjoyed the photo. They are my 4th great grandparents, my lineage goes through my grandma Cara Hutchinson-Perkins, then Birdie Carmen Erskine-Hutchinson, then Olive May Swarts-Erskine, and then Katherine Marie Kunz-Swarts, to John and Christina Kunz. My grandma did lots of compiling of genealogy on her side of the family, and recently passed away but she had an extensive photo collection of family photos which she had compiled from distant relatives all over as well as some photos passed down through the immediate family. I do not know where she even got many of the photos, but most of them are originals printed in the late 1800's and early 1900's and I've been trying to get them all online to share with family. So I am very excited to hear that some family at least have been able to find them.

Irvin Neff

Thank you for making the updates of Irvin Neff's memorial and for the transfer. Sorry I can't help with anything on your Long family line. Irving, his siblings and parents immigrated to NE from Ontario, Canada. Also thank you for the additional leads. Your contribution to Find-a-Grave is appreciated.

Transfers - LaFleur

Was kind of confused in what you were requesting then realized you were requesting transfers. Since I have already deleted the e-mails, request you re-submit those I have not transferred and I will be sending them. Thanks.

RE: Olive and James Northrup
Hi Kathy,

It was good to hear from you. I am also a ggg granddaughter of James and Olive. I descend from their son William Henry and Anna Craig Northrup (his 2nd wife) who had a son Edward who married Olive Wilson who had a daughter Grace who married Joe Thorman who had a daughter Betty who married Jerry Nelson who had me. I have questions about where Olive is buried. Based on a findagrave site I think I found her, but her stone was broken. I contacted the genealogy society in that Ohio county and they could not be absolutely sure that it was Olive Northrup. Would you by any chance know? Also, do you know for certain who James' parents were? Look forward to hearing from you. My email is

transfer of memorials
Hi Kathy,
I was wondering if you could transfer the memorials of my great grandfather (951501419) and my great Aunt and Uncles (51501381, 51501399) to me. Thank You
