Bio Photo First off....FEEL FREE TO USE MY PHOTOS OF HEADSTONES in your family trees...they're the last photos taken of our loved ones' time on this earth....The writing on headstones will fade over time but these pictures on findagrave will not.....

I've been doing our family genealogy for about 6 years now. I started my journey by looking for the ship my Grandfather came over from Yugoslavia on. I had the information on my Grandmother, but I could never find Grandpa's. Two days ago, on November 10, 2006, I finally found it!!! What a joyous moment for me! Because of my quest to find my family, I've been able to trace my husband's family back to Stephen Flanders (thanks to all the Genealogy books and family trees by Flanders family members), the Mansfield's back to Samuel (1804), and the Wolff's (Wolf, Wolfe) back to the 1700's. What a journey! I am really hooked now on finding our family. All four of my Grandparents were born in Yugoslavia and Lithuania. My parents are the first generation American. Needless to say, it's going to take me a lot longer to find MY roots! I really enjoy walking through cemeteries and taking pictures of unique headstones and the headstones of veterans. I take a picture of EVERY headstone of Flanders, Wolf, Wolfe, Wolff, Mansfield, Josephites, Josephitis, Juozapaitis, Altabas and other family names that may be relatives, because I know that someone--somewhere--is also looking for them. If you are a relative of any of my postings and want me to add family information, please e-mail me. I know how important the names of spouses, parents and children are to any information on my postings are a big help!

Meily / Woodruff
Hi Donna,

Are you related to the Meilys or Woodruffs or know who is? You put together nice memorials for them. I've found two pictures from about 1900 of the Meily's store in Columbus, Ohio. Ambrose Woodruff was married to Jenny Meily (picture says first wife so they must have gotten divorced). She is listed in the same cemetery but not connected in his memorial. If you know their descendants, please share with them.

(Note, I do not know the seller at all, I found the photos striking and tried to find a relative).

Charles Link was born 29 Jan 1838 in Chambersburg, Franklin County, Pennsylvania. His father was Nicholas Lincks and his mother was Charlotte Doretha Hornung. The Lincks name spelling was prominent in the older ancestors. Nicholas and Charlotte had children who spelled it Lincks and Link as Charles did. My mother goes by Lincks. Charles I have as died on 06 Jan 1925 in Violet, Fairfield, Ohio. I descend from Nicholas' brother Fredrick Lincks, a civil war veteran in the 21st Pa Cavalry, Company L. Both Nicholas and Fredrick emigrated to the states being born in Niederbetschdorf, Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France. Their father was Jacob Lincks (1772) and their mother was Eva Margaretha Fuchs (09 May 1772). I tied all of Fredrick's descendants to him. Feel free to tie back to Nicholas or Charlotte since she is buried in Cedar Grove Cemetery and she is already in the system.
