Thanks for visiting. I am starting some family pages so that we can keep them alive in our memories.
Thank you to all of the great people who have fulfilled my photo requests or helped me out with time or photos. I am particularly thankful to Victor Bergman of Celina for his help as well as the many kind and generous volunteers from Mercer and Auglaise Counties. I live FAR from you and I wouldn't be very far in my quest to document family members without your help.
Thanks to the person who posted my grandparents. You really inspired me to return that favor whenever I can.
Many of the old photos or information I post are from boxes I found in the effects of relatives who are no longer with us. There is a good chance that if I posted a photo of your relative or loved one I either knew them or can give you some additional information +/- photos of that person, just ask.
If you have photos to share, I am always interested in seeing them. My philosophy is that "when you know a person's face, you know at least a little bit of their story."
If you are going to use any of my photos on Ancestry.com or the like, please give me an appropriate citation (yes, that includes you dfjf1216, elaine adamo, SMITHZITA and many more!). Findagrave suggests that it be in this format: Bio Author. "John Doe". Find A Grave. 6-1-2008.
Finally, if there is one thing that every visitor to findagrave should take away its this-- even if it cost more, buy the GRANITE stone!

I'm not sure if I sent you a thank you for the photo of the grave stone. I sincerely appreciate your time and effort. Cy McMahon
I had this one still on my hard drive from when I went up to Minster in August. I have been too busy to continue with uploading the photos. Sadly, this is all that is left of Mary Berting's stone. Hers, and the one next to her (Eliz Berting), are both broken and gone.

Thank you for the photos of Cecelia and Peter Jacobs! I appreciate the time you took to get them!

Parents are linked to the children through the child's memorial, not the parent's.

This is a new grave from just a few months ago. There is no stone placed as her marker yet. You may want to request it again at a later date. I hope this helps your search.
|Crashlan||RE: Senger Sommer Horstman Photos|
Using the Old Cemetery layout and Occupants pdf supplied by St. Augustine's, I made an excel chart of all of the graves in the old section (80 page Excel chart). Yesterday I started the process of photographing. I got 9 rows done so far. Check back with me in about 2 years!

|Donna ||RE: Puthoff history|
I don't think there is a findagrave memorial for her. I have the info an ancestry.com - Mary Catherine Puthoff, and I'm never quite sure of my information, though I believe my mother-in-law (age 85) had a distant memory of her. In my tree, I have her married to Joseph Carl Ankenbauer (1847-1887). Her parents were Johann Heinrich Puthoff 1817-1871/ Mary Elizabeth Lange 1816-1860.
Their children were: Anna Elizabeth, Gehard Joseph, Marie Elizabeth, Catherine (1875-1940) ** She married John H. Eyink and they are my husband's great grandparents.
Hope any of this info helps - but I have not checked out too much of this side of the family. I do have a grave photo for John Eyink and Catherine - in the Precious Blood Cemetery in Chickasaw.

|Carrie Johnson||RE: Roger and Martha Gunning|
I was wondering if you were related to the Gunnings? I have not been in contact with anyone from that branch of my family in quite a long time.
|Carrie Johnson||RE: Roger and Martha Gunning|
Thank you. It is so sad that they are crumbling away.
|Donna ||RE: Citations|
A. - I have not done the DNA. I, actually, am not from this area at all - my relatives/ancestors are from Western New York State. My husband, however, is from this area and he may be related in multiple ways - his mother was from Maria Stein and Mary Catherine Puthoff was his 3rd great grandmother. I've thought about doing that DNA - but I'm a little confused by what it will show and what the point is - so I haven't looked into it to see if its worth it for me. I like to contribute to findagrave, because I have to count on others like me to find my own ancestry. My next goal is to try to figure out how to write up individual history's and organize that into some readable fashion - like you did with your paper. I also like the idea of a family page that you were working on. Sigh - too much to do! Best wishes....
