Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family tree for just over 2 years. Families researched include: Busch, Keeton, Lacey, Schmidt, Layer, Probandt, Williams. Plus the many branches to include but not limited to: Hilgers, Gueldner, Ullrich.

I am not a member of Find A Grave to see how many memorials I can add. I started working on my immediate family and while walking cemeteries looking for their graves, I took some photos of headstones I thought were interesting. That evolved into taking photos of some that were obviously deteriorating to the point they would be unreadable within the next couple of years. I hate to think that some families may never be able to find a relatives final resting place because of tht.
If you have information for corrections to any of the memorials I manage please send to me for review. I will make every effort to update the information within 24-48 hours of receipt as long as it is valid and verified.
If you are interested in having a memorial transferred to you please send me a request using the edit tab and include the reason you are making the request.

If I have posted photos that you wish to use for personal use, you may do so.

I sincerely appreciate all the work the many contributers of have made. It has made some of my research a bit easier.

Thanks for correcting the links, Lesly. Sorry I'm so late responding. I've been away from the computer for a while.

Permission to use photos
Just a note to thank you for your generosity in allowing others to use your photos for personal use & including your permission in your bio. It is wonderful to find another researcher willing to share. Find a Grave certainly needs more generous researchers like yourself versus those 'others.' Take care!

More thanks
Lesly: I have added a bit of info and tomorrow will take photos of her husband's and daughter' graves. They are buried in the same plot at Sunset on Austin Highway. My dad is with me in a box! Some day I will do something with those ashes. Always some day. Again many thanks. George

Thank you - what do I need to do to "manage" the document? I am willing to do so. From one of her daughters she has only my brother and me and from her other daughter (each of her daughters had one son each) she has 2 (of 3 total) still living that are my cousins and they all have children but the only cousin that was interested in genealogy died some 10 years ago.

I have in 15 years or more years never found anything about my father's maternal grandmother until I stumbled across your photograph of her head stone. Her husband was not buried in the same cemetery so I was at a loss. Thank you for helping people whom you have never met and may never meet. George
