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.

RE: Ernest Piatt
You are very welcome! Jay, I believe our genealogy paths have crossed a few years back. Maybe, researching the Bonhams or Bostons. Can't remember! Retiring the end of this year and hoping to get back into family history! Right now I am just photographing some cemeteries.

Hi Jay!
I have been trying to find my Landseadel family for quite some time. Finally had a breakthrough this week that the name was originally Landsittel and thrilled to find the memorials you created! I would love to have the memorials you have created so that I can work on adding info and linking them to my Landseadels. I think there are 8 or so that you created, all from the same family.
You are usually great about transferring, should I send individual edit requests for each of the Lansittels, or is it easier to transfer them to me without the edit requests? Happy to do whatever you'd like if you are willing to send them to me! As always, appreciate all the work you do!

Let me know. Thanks again, Marnie

You posted the photo of Valentine could you by chance post a photo of His wife stone. He was married to a Mary Rudic B. 1868 D.1827. If you have any information to share about the Ihle family that would be great also. I appreciate you time in doing this.
Thanks, Jean

Sorry about that- getting tired searching. that should have been the 1930 census so just before they both die.
