Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband, Jeff and I were born in Goshen (Elkhart County), Indiana, USA. We both enjoy the hobby of genealogy, and have been researching both of our families since 1995. We started when our children were in grade school and had family roots homework assignments.

I'm working on our Ancestral Fan Chart. In 1995, I only had one line traced back to Germany. Now I have 50 lines traced to England, Scotland, Germany, Netherlands, France and Switzerland.

This is a fantastic site and I thank all the volunteers for sharing their family information and pictures!

Adam Kiefer
Thank you so much for having the obituary information from The Gospel Messenger for Adam Kiefer. I'm not sure if you're the person who added the recent information but I really appreciate it! I knew he was from Germany but I couldn't figure out where... I had some rumored area(s) from things family has found previously but I didn't have any documents to prove it/help narrow it down. Swigsbraken is actually supposed to be Zweibrucken we believe, which would match at least one area someone mentioned. I have been trying to focus on finding out who his family was and where he was from in Germany, or at least his parent's names and who his siblings were. Family rumor claims there were letters to/from his father talking about siblings and a bible, but these items seem to have disappeared sadly. My husband has family in Germany who offered to write to churches there to try to find out more information but we had to be able to narrow it down first! I'm very excited and hoping we will be able to finally start finding out more information about him and his family.

Delbert K Ganger

Are either you or your husband related to Delbert K Ganger? He was my 2nd cousin twice removed. I have more genealogy info on his ancestors, if you would like to share.

Do you have information?
Sarah Williams Warren is my 3rd great grandmother through her son Henry. Do you have any documentation for the family, ancestors, descendants or anything?
Thanks, cousin.

Hi, I added a spouse to David Hostetler memorial.
I noticed you took the picture. Can you also post one for his spouse, Wilma R Hostetler.
When you are ready. I can request a photo and you would then get credit for volunteer photos taken. Let me know.

RE: Daniel Barner
I think it's the same Daniel. Are you interested in having the stone, or do you know any other Barner researchers who may be interested? My friend would like to give it to someone from the family if they want it.

Daniel Barner
Hi. Are you part of the Barner family tree? A friend of mine found a very old tombstone for Daniel L. Barner under a trailer in Muncie. It looks like the stone was replaced with a newer stone, so someone must have discarded the old stone. My friend is trying to figure out what to do with the stone. Any ideas?

Gravestone of Charles A. Smith
I believe that you have this child's parents' on Find-A-Grave:

The Greenwood Police Department [Indiana] needs your help. This grave marker is currently in the GPD Property room. Pranksters stole it and carelessly placed it in someone's yard. Many people visit cemeteries during this weekend, and we are hoping that someone might be able to help us discover where this stone belongs. Please share this post and help us solve the mystery.

son of Henry Clay Smith (1837 - 1907)
Esther Huffman Smith (1836 - 1911)

Thought you might want to claim his marker & reunite him with family... Pat
