Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an amateur genealogist, rockhound, Civil War buff, Army Nurse Corps Veteran and student of history and human behavior.

When I have the honor of managing a memorial, I work to build a bio so that when someone reads it, s/he comes away with an idea of what that person's life was like. Each of us is so much more than birth and death dates. I'm grateful for the the photographers who do the hard work, getting out into the cemeteries, recording the names & dates & snapping gravestone photos of people they don't even know, and who may otherwise remain unrecorded, and forgotten. That's not right, even if you ARE dead.

Thanx to those of you who leave flowers for my Mom, Marilyn Wright Mader, Dad, LTC. Gene W. Mader, my wacky baby sister, Lisa Ann Mader Putnam, Ronald Richard Kropczynski, and Woman's Best Friend, Miss Sheba.

As a Veteran and daughter of one, I believe that we should honor our Veterans~~the women and men who have fought and sacrificed for this great Republic by noting their service in their memorial. The courageous dead deserve to be honored and remembered.

****I want the info on my memorials to be as accurate as possible, so I welcome edits. However, if your info conflicts with mine, please state your source. I don't post data without having a reliable source, and have the same standards for edits. Thank you for caring enough to take the time to send an edit!*****

***In most cases I am willing to transfer memorials of people who are not family to me. Please tell me how you are related to that person and make your request through the edit tab on the memorial. Thank you.***

I have interest in the Ironton OH Mader family.
In 1945 obit for my wifes g father it listed a sister Mrs. Charles Mader , when I found Charles on census his wife was Florence , when Florence died 1955 , it gave her parents as George & Nancy , if this is the only Charles Mader in Ironton then either obit was wrong or something else. In 1900 census George & Nancy did not have a daughter Florence. In 1900 census Viller (Revillo) listed Florence age 16 as sister.

RE: M. Householder
Glad I could help. The Haushalter Family around Oberbetschdorf and Niederbetschdorf (now just Betschdorf) was so prolific that some of the members were identified by who their father was.

RE: Joyce Hathaway
I don't know how this happened but I always look and the only Hathaway showing was Ray when I made the memorial for Joyce. A error somehow but I deleted mine. Nice bio you made.

RE: Pvt. Schultz
Confusing is a mild word for it. There are probably a dozen or more variations on the cemetery name. They lie in view of our Nation's Capital, yet so many are forgotten and unknown to their families. Thanks for helping!
