Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started into genealogy in 1990 and enjoy tracing my family's history, and learning about the history of the area's my ancestors lived in. I take pictures of many headstones when I go to a cemetery, so if you see a memorial page I have and you are related, don't hesitate to ask for a transfer. (If you would like for me to transfer a page to you, please let me know by using the "edit" button since that will provide both a link to the page and a link to your contributor page with the necessary ID# for the transfer).
I especially try to get photos of our veteran's headstones as I believe they have all earned, besides our gratitude and other things, the right to have a memorial page on this site.
Anyone wishing to use the photos, in their genealogy, that I have posted on this website are free to use them.
Anyone wishing to have memorials that I have added removed from find a grave need only send a request. I put the memorial pages here so that family members in search of ancestors can find them, not to offend anyone.

Names I am tracing: Boone, Musser, Baney, Boston, Kyttle (Kittle), Monroe, Swire, King to name the main ones.

My fathers father
The location of my grandfather's final resting place had been a mystery since 1965. Your picture and information (for his headstone) had finally brought a conclusion to our family's search.

Thank you so much. It means a great deal to us.

Maria R. Reinheimer-Erb
Hello Jay:
Maria Rosina's correct maiden name is Maria Rosina Seilheimer married to Titus Erb.
Maria Rosina Seilheimer was the daughter to Phillip Jacob Seilheimer & Anna Maria Neumann.
Maria had 14 siblings. She came from Mettenheim, Worms, Darmstadt, Hessen, Germany with her family in 2 November 1848. I hope you find the rest of Maria R. Seilheimer's family. Maria had no children with Titus. Titus drew up the plans for Maria's father's Cigar Factory. Titus owed a Cigar shop in Buffalo, NY. She had 3 brothers that moved to Chicago around 1870. The 3 brothers are Johann (John) D., Jacob Phillip, Frederick (Fritz) Seilheimer are all buried at Rosehill Cemetery in Chicago. I am the great great granddaughter of Johann (John) D. Seilheimer. By the way John, Jacob and Fritz owed a Seilheimer Hardware Store off of Clybourne & Sheffield Street in Chicago between 1870-1910. My Mother is the Great Granddaughter of John & Frederica (Schroeder) Seilheimer. My Mother is the only one living, from her family of 9. She is 93 yrs old.
Thank you,

RE: Brown, 82791192
Hi, Jay -
That is SO nice of you - I have only had a couple of problems with doubles on here, but I never understand why somebody would let a hundred or more tokens be dropped just so that their specific page stays up with not alot of traffic...extremely stand up of you. =) I will add the info right now and give you the credit - hnope that we talk again. =) Best, RCP and Gannon Blue
