Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Brenda (Boyer) Kohr. My husband, Pete, and I are researching his side of the family (Kohr/Smith)&(Minnich/Buxton), as well as my own (Boyer/Grimes)&(Beil/Shott). We are not trying to see how many memorials we can amass so that we can have our numbers posted in the "Top Contributors" catagory. We want to make memorials to pay tribute to our families and friends and hopefully help others to find theirs.

We enjoy helping others by photographing grave markers. There are times that we may photograph markers that are near the ones we were asked to take photos of, or if we see one with our surnames. If there is no memorial for these extra photos that we take....I create one. If by chance I happen to create a memorial for a relative or a friend of yours don't hesitate to ask for a transfer. I don't feel the need to keep memorials that I have created. (unless they are family) I only created them so that someone may find a member of their family or a friend. Guidelines (and that is all they are) and numbers mean nothing....families are what is important. If people asking for out of guideline transfers has caused a problem for you.....stop making memorials. Problem solved!!

Guidelines....not rules, not regulations, not laws....not even an eleventh commandment.

NOTE: - GUIDELINES ....definition of...

A guideline is a statement by which to determine a course of action. By definition, following a guideline is never mandatory. Guidelines are NOT binding.

Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble stone

It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born

Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood and bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so

I wonder if you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you

Author Unknown


Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

John and Amanda Weisenford
Wow! That was faster than greased lightning! I hope y'all didn't make a special trip just to make that photo. In any case, thanks very much! Our records had my distant cousin Amanda Zimmerman Weisenford born in 1878, so I'm glad to get the correct information. Y'all are genealogical heroes!

Dengler / Rodearmel Photos
Dear Brenda and Pete:

Thanks much for taking and posting the photos of the grave markers for Isaac Dengler and his wife Ida Roderamel. Very much appreciated. Don't know if you read Isaac's memorials or not - a very sad and tragic end to a promising young man.

Best, Barry

Thanks so much for the photo of the grave of Emma Wise Bailey. I had no dates for her husband Walter, but now I do. You've always been so very helpful with my genealogy requests and I greatly appreciate it.
Many Thanks!

Thank you so much for the great photo. Would you consider transferring his wife's memorial to me as she is my family and I didn't know where she was buried. My #47627375. Thank You so much.
