Sent in a wrong Maiden name correction. You should get two. Last name was "Dyer" not Kehler. Thanks. Hope all is well.

Hechler headstone
Hi,
Went back and see that you added the headstone to the Hechler site long ago, before it was transferred to me.
Thank you for submitting it.

RE: Photos...Hechkler
Hi,
Thank you, but what would I put as submitter?
Just your initials or that and Find A Grave number? I have not done this before.

Would appreciate consideration of transfer of August Schneider and his wife Maria to me if not related to you. They are my 3rd great grandparents.

I appreciate you putting this up because if not for you I would have not known where they were buried. Thank you for all you do!

St Joseph's in girardville
The descriptions is accurate, my great great grand parents are buried in this cemetery. We went up ther last summer (2013) The cemetery is over grown with trees and shrubs. The center of the cemetery has a wooden stair set of railroad ties but most are rotted. many sink holes all around. The top of the cemetery is loaded with broken glass. I spent about three hours carefully navigating through the cemetery. There are many spots that you work your way to that you must turn around due to holes or overgrowth. It is a shame that it was not taken care of. My dads great grandfather is a the bottom and realtively easy access but in summer extremely over grown. I wish I knew how to start a renovation of this out of respect for all those in the cemetery.
