Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello,
My name is Matt Voorhees, I am currently eighteen years old and have been an active member of Find A Grave since I was twelve years old. Ancestry is my passion, since 2008 I have been fascinated with history, mostly my family's history. I also collect old ephemera (Paper, Diaries, etc.), photographs (Dags, Ambros, Tintypes, etc) as well as several family heirlooms that have been passed down to me. I have studied for the past few years the history of photography and fashion so I can accurately date photos within a ten year time frame or more exact at times.
I only rarely do Grave Photo Request because of my school schedule. Feel free to message and or email me.
Corrections and family relationship additions are welcome and will be reviewed before acceptance.
Please refrain from posting flower memorials with political statements.

Jeff Donaldson
Maria Anna Schklgruber Hilter
Hi! This is Jeff. She looks to be 20 years old. So, what I said about 1850 is wrong for her. But it is possible to be dressed like this.

Hi! This is Jeff Donaldson. Yes, It does look like she had on a dress from the 1890s. I checked it out to see if I might be wrong.It is possible to be dressed like this, since it is close to the 1850s.

David Voorhees
Hi, Matthew,
Would you please tell me your relationship to David Voorhees? Also, if you read my bio, you will find, near the end, an easy way for transfers/additions/corrections, to be done. I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

RE: Landon
That is quite the accompliment for someone of your age, well, any age. I am much older and have been researching on and off since the 1980's. I've always loved family history, any history actually.
I heard much the same story. I was told that Hulda had my g-grandpa go out first because she wanted him safe. She wasn't going to leave and knew if he knew that, he would refuse also. He told me it was the farthest jump he ever made, and actually wasn't sure how he did it. I have his bible and he has an article with a picture of the bridge he jumped on, that he drew on in ink and wrote a note about it.
I have a huge trunk of stuff on differant sides of my family that I will pull out this weekend and will find the stuff on the Landon's. I know I have Hulda's birth & death certificate, a burial record. It cost $13.00 to bury her. I think your g-g-grandpa was the one who paid for it.

RE: Landon
Wow! That is great! Hi Cousin :)
Yes, Charles Landon is my great grandpa, and Echo is my grandma. My father, her son, is still living. I have a lot of historical stuff on Hulda. My Grandpa Landon was so hurt by her death that I only heard him tell the story of the flood once, after his death I kinda made it my mission to find her - all I knew was that her friends called her Jenny. It was a wonderful search ending at her tombstone. I will be in Fletcher later this year and will most likely stop by it.
What stories of the family were passed on to you?

Hi -
Charles E. Landon was my great grandfather, and I just wanted to make a correction that he is buried in Forest Hill Union Cemetery in over in Piqua.

Thank you,
Joni

Photo Request for Abram Quick
I've added the photos to the memorial. You'll have to change the cemetery to Forest Hill, Wood County, Wisconsin. On the memorial, look for "Burial: [Edit]" and click [Edit], you'll be able to change the cemetery in the next steps.
