Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am passionate about gathering and preserving my ancestral/family tree information, and am always willing to help others do the same.

My paternal side is directly from Germany, making me a first generation American on my father's side.

My maternal side also goes back to Germany, but a few generations back, immigrating to Missouri. My maternal side also includes, through my maternal grandmother, two merged lines, throughout more than one generation, of English/Virginia Colonial tobacco planter ancestors.

My family surnames include:

Paternal: Wallmeier, Hoefel (Hofel with umlaut),Freise/Frese, Krah, Lichtenberg.

Maternal: Van Booven, Van Bentum, Gatewood, George, Hammock, Salamink, Klusmeyer, Hinchy/Hinchey, Jeffries, McDowell, Duck.

Stepfather: Langdon, Barker, Crockett.

Married: Hinz, Hoover

*** If you would like transfer of a memorial that I have created that I am not related to, I am more than happy to transfer! Just ask! I believe the memorials of someone's close friend or distant relative, or a beloved step-family member belongs with a person who loved them, or cares about their heritage, or has more information about them than a stranger who respectfully added a memorial for them, yet knows nothing about them. I have absolutely no problem with that. So if a person was "yours" in life somehow, just ask. Just, PLEASE, do not delete it once you have it, unless there is an undeniable reason to do so. That rule I respect. I check beforehand to make sure there is not already a memorial for someone, so I am careful not to duplicate. Thank you.

** If you see a headstone photo that I have taken, please feel free to use it, without my express permission, as these are not my professional work. These are volunteer photos, and I do this simply to help others find their loved ones. If you feel the need to acknowledge me, that's fine, but it is not why I do this.

++ If I have a photo of a PERSON, that is an instance where I ask that you simply ask my permission first. I am very agreeable.

Happy Grave Hunting!

Cheri, Thank you very much for posting the picture of Frank Meehan's (1883-1960) gravestone.It was cracked and has now been replaced by the Holy Hope Cemetery in Tucson. He was my father-in-law.

We expect to add a photo of the new stone shortly, as we took some new ones.

Thank you again for your interest.

RE: Francisca Mills
Thank you, Cheri!! Thanks for all you do. This was one of two spouses I requested; the other one will be in your edit button list. I also corrected her middle initial to include her whole middle name.

Thank you! I didn't create the memorial, but I did send a request to correct the dates.

RE: Young family
Hi Cheri. It is my friend who is related to the Youngs. I asked her if she wanted them transferred and she said it wasn't necessary, as long as the connections are made. Thank you! She is related to all in this cemetery except Rufus and Mallie. Weird. I think eventually she will find the connection, but so far, not yet.

She is also wondering where Robert Ford Young is (1921-2003). He is apparently the husband of Ethel. Is it possible he is next to her with no marker? Perhaps the next time you're at the cemetery you could see if he's there somewhere... :-)

Thanks again so much; as I said, the photos are terrific!!
