Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE NOTE: I will have limited internet use for a time. I will try my best to accomplish edits and answer messages, but I do anticipate some delays. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
I was born in the Midwest, but have lived most of my life in the south. I was stationed in Germany for a time, and have otherwise done a little travel to Europe and Asia. I spend far too much time on the computer, enjoy a good frappuccino,and I ♥LOVE♥ cats.

My primary family names are Sullivan, McCoy, Withee, Fredendall, Washburn, Nesbit, Schmidt, Petersen, Meyer (Meier), Markman, Pease, Millikan, Donnan, and still counting.

I view the memorials on this site as living tributes to our loved ones. I strive to "reunite" them with family, and if I am able, to add a personal detail or two about them.


You are welcome to use any photos which I have uploaded for your personal family research work, but please do not use them for commercial purposes. The photos I upload are intended as gifts for the families of the deceased with no regard for personal profit, with the exception of the honor of providing them, and I wish for this to be respected.

Photo Allotments

We are allotted 20 photo requests per week. I am requesting for everyone to please use your allotment. Memorials you manage, memorials I manage ~ it doesn't matter.

Headstone photos may assist in providing confirmation of birth and death details, marriage dates, children, spellings, and might even lead to the discovery of additional family members.

Requests fulfillments also provide a small reward to our volunteers who often drive several miles to obtain a photo. I have so often seen where someone will request a photo, and then ask for the volunteer to take a photo of their spouse too, without submitting the request for the additional photo. Why?

It's much easier to request 20 photos in a cemetery that it is for the volunteer to drive out, take them, edit them, caption them, and post them. While I do try to get other family near the one requested in case they are not already listed, it is nice if you also request them, so please take the time to request them and please try to remember to use your weekly allotment.

Suggestions, Corrections, and Transfers

I generally adhere to Find A Grave transfer request guidelines, but before requesting, please keep in mind that even a "starter" memorial involves effort to create and I am more than willing to accomplish edits. Also, if a transfer or edit request comes off as pushy, arrogant, demanding, or rude, do not be surprised if you are ignored.

This site was created as a means of helping others, and not intended as a means to criticize, harass, bully or badger. Be kind to your fellow volunteers as we are all trying to achieve the same goal of helping others.

Phillip Christian Gross

Phillip Christian Gross (b. October 30, 1847) married Mary C. Steinbach (February 4, 1854 Ė June 13, 1911) on November 23, 1871 in Adams County. They had three children, Albertha Magdalena, Andrew Simon, and Clara Amanda. He died sometime between September 24, 1883 and February 5, 1885. I donít have any confirming death records. She remarried Hans Heinrich Kruger on January 4, 1887. They had three children, Cora, Charlotte, and Henriette. Mary Steinbeck (Gross) Kruger and Hans Heinrich Kruger are both buried in Godís Little Acre (St. Paulís Lutheran) Cemetery in Fontanelle, Washington County, Nebraska.

Hope that helps.


P.S. May I ask your about your interest in the Gross family?

Thanks so much for the Siefert/Strenger/Meierhenry edits

thanks for providing the sources. Lately there have been lots of bogs edits sent in so I am being extra careful. Then once I know a person is ok and is serious about this then I only ask if there is a question.

Find A Grave doesn't have many choices for the edits in question so "conflicts with my data" was the only one I could choose since you have to choose one of their pre made choices.

I added info and maiden name..please check it out to see if I missed anything

I don't have a maiden name for Helen. If I find any info I will let you know.

Just a little note on the side...I recently attended the 94th continuous Mixer Reunion in Adams co. IL.

I do have a fair amount of information about my Mixer family, so if there is any way I can help you please ask.

Thank you for the transfer and all of the info you have entered about the family, it is appreciated.

Saunders ~ Valley
Hi Sheila

I posted several photos for Saunders to free-up some of your allotment. I was there about 3 weeks ago, and I have over 500 photos to process (photos along with new memorials). The individual markers for your Saunders requests were among those, except for Caroline and Charles. I intend to return to Valley when I get a chance to capture the family plot photos as you requested, as I know where they are located (I have the GPS). I'll post those when I get back.

Dornacker (at Valley)
Hi Sheila

I just submitted and email 'Edit request' to you to have the burial location for Katherine and Henry Dornacker changed from Valley to Elk City. By chance, I was taking some photos at Elk City and noticed the markers for the Dornackers. The name stood out because Katherine was on a photo request for Valley. I'll post the photos under the memorials that you created, because there is another memorial for Henry Dornacher (wrong spelling) at Elk City. Your memorial has all the links so I think you should try to keep that one and have the other removed if possible.

Also, at Valley, I found two Larson markers (Bengta and Nels), but could not locate August Larson. I took a photo of the area where Bengta Larson (his wife) and Nels were located. Based on the dates for Nels, I assume he could be the Father or Grandfather of August (just an assumption).

George Christo
Sheila, thank you for the obituary for George. He is my uncle, my mother's sister's husband. I did not have it.

I researched George's mother Marie on and found baptism records for several of George's siblings that gave her name as Marie Kostandin which I assume is the Greek version of Constantine. So I changed her maiden name on the Find A Grave record. Thanks for pointing out the discrepancy.
