Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born, raised and live in beautiful Northwestern Illinois. I love searching through old cemeteries for my family and helping others find theirs. I hope to get photos taken at many of the area cemeteries and posted on Find A Grave, as time permits. I am our family genealogist and love history and antiquing.

Some of the family surnames I am researching: Lyon/Lyons, Millet, Edwards, Mitchell, Goodmiller/Guthmuller, Keck, Johnson, Stone, Grandy, Hazelton, Finkenbinder, Throne, Machamer, Hartman, Dubs, DeLong, Keeler/Kahler, Culbertson, Clay, Ortmeier, Hoefer, Ploeger, Krugjohann, Bokemeier, Knauer, Rath, Haas, Handel, Groezinger, Accens, Miller, Schleuning, Schnider, Manion, Patton, Oldham, Kavanaugh, Noland, Vertrees, Layman, Williams, Nalley, Henderson

On my husbands side: Groezinger, Koepp, Gerner, Slonecker, Mapes, Osterday, Justus, Byrum, Beardsley

RE: Rosenstiel
Hi Sandy, thanks for the offer. There are several Roesntiels and a couple of Pickards that I will send over transfer requests. Are you related to either the Rosenstiels or the Pickards?

According to information I just found Anna Maria Bauman, daughter of Heinrich Bauman and Catherine Darr, is my 6th great-grandmother. She would have been a sister of Maria Salome Bauman Dubs.
