|Bio and Links|
I enjoy spending free time in cemeteries and doing genealogy. I also collect antique books and photographs of all varieties. |
These are my main surnames of interest; please contact me to exchange info/photos: Mayville, Diebold, Star[c]k, Walsh, Hurst, Tice, Walter, Emmerich, Hess, Hagemann, Brandmueller, and Liebenow, among many others.
Check out my Brick Walls. Maybe you can help?
*My grandpa Mayville (1931 - 2015)
*My cousin Sydney (2000-2016)
-Please credit me if using my photos elsewhere!! This includes Ancestry.com, your personal genealogy page, etc. I don't mind if you use my photos, just please cite your source!
-Please submit any additions, corrections or transfer requests via the "edit" tab on each individual memorial. I add memorials one at a time (not in mass uploads as some do) in an effort to increase accuracy, but no one is perfect.
-I have no problem transferring as long as they are not my family; however, I do not support "memorial collectors." The goal of F-A-G is not to "own" memorials for each member of your family, but to make sure each memorial is as accurate as possible.
My most meaningful work on Find-a-grave are the cemeteries I have fully photographed / transcribed. These cemeteries are special because (in most cases) I am related to many buried there:
-Lawrence/Cady Cemetery (Brown Co., WI 2006-07)
-Saint Louis Catholic Cemetery (Caledonia, WI 2009-10)
-Fairview Cemetery (Greenleaf, WI, 2010)
-St. James Catholic Cemetery (Oak Creek, WI 2010)
-Saint Mary of the Lake Catholic Cemetery (Westport, WI, 2012)
& the following portions of Resurrection Cemetery in Madison, WI:
Section 1, Blocks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7 (2012-13)
Section 2, Blocks 5, 6, & 7 (2014)
Section 3, Blocks 11, 12, 13, 21, 22, 23, 31, 32, 33 & 42 (2013-14)
Section 4, Blocks 11, 12, 13, 21 & 22 (2014)
I have photographed the following but haven't uploaded yet:
Section 2, Blocks 1, 2, 3 & 4 (2015)
Section 5 (2014)
Section 6 (2014)
Section 8 (2014)

Her mother, Anna Schmitz, is my 3x great grandmother. I have more information about her father than her mother.
|Jim Roach||Nathaniel Shattuck, 1755-1835|
Nathaniel Shattuck's tombstone is also engraved with a Silas N. Davis who died a generation later in 1895. Obviously the tombstone was erected at some later date, but I was just curious if anyone knows why two different individuals were included on the same tombstone.

42480956 George Reinke 1914-2009 (Henry Reinke's oldest grandson) did a very detailed Reinke Family Tree Book in 1995 (about an inch thick and before computers). He was an active member of the historical society. He even gathered pictures of Frederick Reincke (with a "c") and son Henry and with wife Marianna Dahling from some family members.
|driftlessgirl||RE: Doll graves in Resurrection|
Sorry my reply was slow coming. I had problems replying from the Find-a-Grave app. I'm sorry I don't know the exact plot location. I have placed a call to the office but have not heard back yet. I do recall that they are buried directly across the street from Cress in the section between Hillcrest Dr. and S. Franklin closer to the middle of that section. They are a second marker in off the path that you can drive thru the cemetery. (The things you remember as a kid, huh?) If I hear back, I will pass along the exact location.
|Nanci||RE: Marie Wermuth|
Micheal Dempsey has 2 find a grave entries. He was first interned in Forest Hill, then moved to Resurrection. It looks like I gave Clem the Forest Hill Micheal and everyone else has Resurrection Micheal. I'm new at this, thanks for your help!

|Marshall Spencer||RE: Lester Dalton|
Thank you very much Jade. Well done. The world needs more people like you. Have a great day.
|Marshall Spencer||RE: Lester Dalton|
Hi Jade, Lester's wife's name was Lillie Meeks. Their children were Cranford Dalton, L. T. Dalton, Young Dalton, Ruth Dalton, Myrtle Dalton, Vassie Dalton, & Francine Dalton, all born in Homer, Banks, Co., GA. You should look into being a professional genealogist. Thank you for all of your help, much appreciated. Keep up the great work.
Marshall A. Spencer
