My contributions are in honor of those, who walked before us, no disrespect is intended whatsoever by my submissions to this website.

I NEED YOUR HELP: Check out the virtual cemetery on the right. Maybe you can help finding these folks' final resting places.

DasMachtDochNix1( a t )gmail( d o t )com

Born in Germany in the 60's and growing up in Berlin and Munich, I now live in Central New York. I started my own genealogy in the 70's, then did my High School and College thing in the 80's, and came to the US in the 90's. Now I am taking pictures for fun and business. Some of the photos I post are digitally enhanced, so the lettering on older grave markers is easier to read. The information on FINDAGRAVE is provided by thousands of volunteers. Please let's not forget we are all volunteers. I take exception with those volunteers who say their photos are copyrighted. Why take photos if you're not going to share them with everyone? My photos are free to anyone who wants to copy them for non-profit purposes, no need to ask. A credit to FINDAGRAVE would be nice. After all, they are just photos of grave markers, not the Mona Lisa!

If you find errors on any of my submitted items, please be so kind and let me know so I can correct those. It's important for all of us hobby-family-researchers and historians to remain accurate in the data we publish. Always glad to transfer memorials following the FaG's guidelines. Just send me a SAC: Click on the memorial's EDIT tab, then on "Suggest any other correction or addition", that way I get your number and that of the memorial.

When researching European names, pay specific attention to the spelling, especially when uncommon letters are involved. In German there are those "Umlaute": Ä, Ö, Ü, ä, ö, ü.
Do not assume that Schäfer and Schaefer are the same. And Boeck is not the same as Böck.

Search for European Nobility with and without prefix, e.g. Friedrich von Bayern or Friedrich Bayern. Frederick of Bavaria or Frederick Bavaria. For Dutch names with the "van" search with and without space: "VanAusten" and "Van Austen".

I welcome every message left for me, but will delete them after I read and acted upon them. I like my member page "clutter-free", I am German after all. Giggle.

Thank You,

If you contact me, I expect your email settings to be set in a way so that I can respond back to you. I WILL NOT respond to any of your automatic emails that require me to sign up first, and ask for permission to write back to you. Change your settings. Those are rude, annoying and totally unnecessary. If you want something from me, I expect you to establish a way I can contact you back!

I've been looking for her burial. but have not found it yet. At least she has an obituary now.

Here is her obituary-
Patricia Nixon Greenleaf
April 26, 2007
Times Observer
Patricia Nixon Greenleaf, of Portland, NY, died at her beloved Lake Shore Road home on April 24, 2007, after a short illness. She was born in Fredonia, NY, on August 18, 1922. She graduated from Emma Willard School, Troy, NY, in 1940, and earned a BA from the University of Michigan in 1945.

Upon graduation from college, Patricia served with the American Red Cross in the South Pacific, where, on at least one memorable occasion, she donned a grass skirt to entertain U.S. troops! She married Sigourney van der Voort Hurd in 1948; this marriage ended in divorce. In 1969, she married John Ackley Greenleaf who died in 1974. Patricia had been employed as a medical records administrator at Highland Hospital, Rochester, NY, and at Brooks Memorial Hospital, Dunkirk, NY. She was a member of St Peter’s Episcopal Church, Westfield, NY.

Patricia was a voracious reader, an enthusiastic gardener, and a great lover of birds. She was also cherished by her family and friends for her sharp wit; her warm hospitality; and her capacity for meeting adversity with a unique combination of humor, defiance, and grace.

Patricia was predeceased by her father, George Redfield Nixon; her mother, Josephine van Buren Nixon Keena; her stepfather, Kemp Keena; her husband, John Ackley Greenleaf; her brother Van Buren Nixon, and sister-in-law, Hazel Garner Nixon; and a favorite cousin, Faith Crandall Scott.

She is survived by her beloved daughter, Sandra Nixon Hurd, and son-in-law, Joel Potash, of Syracuse, NY; two stepsons, William Greenleaf of Spring Hill, FL, and David Greenleaf of Natick, MA; a stepdaughter-in-law Susan Greenleaf; four stepgrandchildren, Michael, Greta, Jonathan, and Sarah; a niece, Patricia Nixon; a nephew, John Nixon; many cousins, including JoAnne and Nancy Nixon; and many friends.

Plans for a memorial service will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Patricia’s name may be made to St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, 12 Elm St., The Patterson Library, 40 S. Portage St., both of Westfield, NY, 14787, or to Hospice of Chautauqua County, 4840 W. Lake Rd., Mayville, NY, 14757. Condolences may be sent to her family at 6655 Route 5, Portland, NY 14769.

Arrangements are by the MASON Funeral Home, Westfield, NY.
