Bio Photo NOTE: If contacting me about one of my entries, please identify that person by the Findagrave memorial number located at the bottom of that person's page. That saves me much time in looking them up. Thanks........

I'm a long time family genealogist, have made use of many genealogy web pages, and have decided it's time to do my part as a volunteer, as many others have done, by placing sometimes very difficult to locate birth and death dates in Findagrave. Some of my entries are for family but the most are from 'just going down the rows' in cemeteries available. My hope is that I'm helping at least a few unknown genealogists with information.

A word of caution to the unsuspecting:
Along with obituaries, gravestones are NOT infalliable in accuracy, most often having a partially incorrect date for the birth date. My experience has shown gravestones to be inaccurate in one date or another at least 5% of the time. Birth and marriage dates in obituaries have a higher rate of inaccuracy. Even death dates on gravestones are subject to error as I have found in many years of researching.

Elizabeth Patterson Knapp
Hi. Elizabeth Knapp wife of Pvt. Lucius H Knapp is my GG Grandmother. Through Lucius and Elizabeth's daughter Florence Genette "Nettie" Knapp.Florence was enumerated as Dolly on the 1860 Census of Lucius and Elizabeth.Under Court records in Elkhart County you can find Lucius Knapp's Minor Heir papers with Sarah, Harriet ,Martha, and Florence.I have the marriage record of Elizabeth Patterson and Lucius Knapp. Was wondering if you'd add her maiden name. Also you have Harriet dying in the 1940's? Do you know who she married? I know what happened to Florence and Martha R "Mattie" Knapp. Both married Hogue boys. I never could figure out anything on Sarah or Harriet. You have a birth and death date for Harriet on Elizabeth's memorial. I would love to know more about her. I also have information on Lucius. His father is Henry A. Knapp

RE: Grave location
OK Gary, I guess I will have to walk the cemetery also. I want to visit them because they are my great, great grand parents. I hope it is the right cemetery when I go because no one seems to have their records.
Thank you very much,
Carl

Grave location
Gary, I am searching for Henry Meinhardt 1833 - 1895 Memorial #23239450. I see on find a grave you posted him as being buried at Saint Johns Cemetery on Buente Street. I want to view his grave and take pictures and would like to pinpoint the location so I don't have to walk the entire cemetery. I have contacted Saint Johns Church and the cemetery caretaker and both say they have no records Of Henry or his Wife Maria Memorial #23239477. I have a map of the cemetery. Can you tell me the location?

New Feature on Find A Grave
I found out a new feature on Findagrave. Go to the Contributor Page on your name and look at the Edit Tab at the top right. If you click on that it will show request for you to accept or decline for adding birth and death dates, locations and states. Doesn't allow any connection to parents yet. Hope this info helps.

Restwood Cemetery in Hinton, Wv
Hi Mr. Myers, Thank you for being a Find A Grave volunteer. You have posted a picture for Restwood Memorial Gardens in Hinton, West Virginia, but the picture you have posted (it is a picture of a mausoleum) is located at Greenbrier Burial Park, also in Hinton, WV. Would you care to remove the picture posted for Restwood and post it on Greenbrier Burial Park? Thank you so much. D.Mack

John Reidmier
Hi Gary,
My name is Chris Myers. My father is Lowell, my grandfather is John, and my great grandfather is Herman. I believe that we are related. According to my dad, you are a descendent of Herman's brother, John.

Thank you for your contributions to information and photos of our extended families. I'm just starting to get into some genealogical work. What sources have you found to be most helpful in your work? Have you been able to find out anything about Johannes (John) Reidmier (memorial # 52434298) and Juliana Roth Myers Boss (memorial # 52402832) in Baden Baden, Germany? Thanks.

Chris

St. Anthony's Cemetery photo
Thanks for getting back to me Gary. I thought maybe you lived in the Pittsburgh area. I'll try to find someone else. I do appreciate your photo of entrance marker and location description though.

St Anthony's Cemetery
Gary, I was wondering if you could locate and possible photograph any type of marker that may be present for a man by the name of OTTO KUTCHER. He passed away in January of 1935 and was laid to rest in St Anthony's in Shaler Twp. The record says Section C, Lot No. 28, Grave No. 1.
He was a Great Grandfather and there is very little known about him. If I know his grave is marked that is a start. Thanks if you can do that....Digger
