It began with a simple search. I started out looking up the cemetery where my sister is buried and I found this site. To my surprise, someone had taken a photo of my sister's gravesite marker and it really made me fill up with emotions. It's been years since I have had the opportunity to visit my sister but here, I feel I can visit her when ever I want to.

Now, I hope I contribute here as well however, I ride the bus so I have to stick to areas where public transport runs. A special Thank You to those who have added photos of my relatives. It means a lot to me.

If I add a photo to your memorial that has been already created, I mean no harm. To me, I think that the family member(s) wouldn't mind seeing another image of the monument/grave marker. In my mind, it's better to share the image rather than let it go to waste (waste meaning that it gets deleted without anybody seeing it). If you want me to remove a photo from your memorial, just kindly let me know.

Lately, I truly have been enjoying, walking through the cemetery and snaping photos. I can remember my first experience going to a cemetery, it was to see my sister's grave. We'd visit, leave flowers and look at other grave markers while we were there.

Now, I can spend hours in a cemetery and often I lose track of time. I love looking at the markers and I often wonder and I ask myself, what their lives were like, what kind of person were they? I also love seeing all the different types of markers that are created over the years.

When I travel to another city, I find it that it becomes necessary to visit at least 1-2 cemeteries in the area. Some of my friends understand, some don't, lol. However, it surely has been an adventure even though it has been only a short amount of time that I have been here on Findagrave.

This was my first summer (2014), fall (2014) is here, it has cooled down, to me this just means that I have to dress more appropriately. I am hoping that the winter time will not deter me from going out, however, I will admit, my body does not like the cold weather very much. I hope to keep up with what I'm doing. However, if I cannot I will let you all know here in my bio section as this seems to be the best way to keep you all posted on thoughts that I want to convey to you all out there.

I want to thank everyone who has kindly sent me or posted additional information. I appreciate it very much and remember, this information are for those that are out there who might be doing research on their families, friends, etc. Also, thank you for leaving flowers on the memorials. They appreciate it very much. Again, thank you for all that you do. :)

Here is a poem that I saw and had to share with you all. "Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep" is a poem written in 1932 by Mary Elizabeth Frye

"Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep"

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush,
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

RE: Mount Royal Marzolf family
Thanks so much.

I once visited Rosedale Cemetery - which is where my immigrant Marzolf's are buried. There are several graves that are easily seen, but directly in front or behind them was a huge bush - HUGE. The day we were there, a guy happened to be mowing the lawn and we paid him $20 to cut it down and low and behold were the original immigrants; George Frederick Marzolf and Salome Marzolf. There stones were in poor condition and all in unreadable German, but they were there. I'm sure this unruly bush has regrown right over them again. Ugh! (By the way, I was with the same woman that told me how to find a buried grave with her walking stick.) She had a nose for finding those old graves.

Hi, I added her nickname of "Belle" to her memorial page. She is my grand aunt, and I have entered her legal name on her memorial correctly. Thanks for your concern. Is there a duplicate I should be looking at?

Mount Royal Marzolf family
I was recently happy to discover that you listed several Marzolf's at Mount Royal. I had a request/question for you regarding one of them.

You noted a cluster of three graves near to each other: Emma Marzolf, Alva Marzolf and Elmer Marzolf. You correctly noted that Alva and Elmer are married. You have Emma listed as the mother of Elmer which is also correct. However, you don't show a grave for Emma's husband, which if memory serves me correct, is next to Emma under that huge bush/tree where she is shown. It has been many years ago, but I once went with another Marzolf researcher to this grave and she showed me a wonderful trick. She had a walking stick with a nail on the end of it. Under this tree, she poked with that sharpened nail head until she found a hard surface and pushed the grass away from this area to reveal another stone. I'm guessing this is why Emma's husband's stone wasn't noted in your photo. His name is William F. Marzolf.

If by chance you ever are in this area again and have a chance to poke around (literally), you will likely find his grave. I now live in Kansas and the kindness of others posting graves in Pennsylvania is much appreciated.

Thanks again for your kindness in listing these graves.

RE: Condolences
Thank you. We were married 46 years; he was truly the other half of me. He had a stroke 18 years ago, from diabetes going unchecked ... Then that very early morning - a really massive stroke happened; he died the next afternoon. Yes, it's hard - but there are worse things than dying. He was well loved and is well remembered.

RE: John Kietter dates and links
I messed up the year of his death. It should be 1965, not 1916. I also added Elizabeth as his wife and Frederick Kietter as his father. Antonia should still be listed as his mother.

I'll see if I can dig up his death certificate.

RE: Rudolf Milke
A majority of my information is coming from my living grandmother, Shirley Weiherer. Rudolf was her grandfather, thereby making him my 2x great-grandfather.

Charles Weiherer handled the re-interment from Oakland Cemetery for Emilia Kietter and Rudolf Milke. While he was at it, he purchased two plots for Emma and himself. My grandmother knows they're both in the Oakland section since she attended her parents burials.

Unfortunately, my family moved to Dallas after Charles Weiherer's passing, and we still live there today. I'm too far away to search for their gravesites.
