Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always loved to visit cemeteries and thought it was a little weird until I found this website. Visiting a cemetary satisfies many of my favorite hobbies: plants ( Whenever I go, I walk around watering plants that people leave for their loved ones but are unable to come back and take care of), photography, and history. I especially like to visit old cemeteries to take pictures of the elaborate monuments. I'm really happy to discover there are thousands of you out there that feel the same.

I try to put as much information as I can find on the internet with each memorial and also try to include the source. Feel free to use any pictures of headstones and grave markers that I have uploaded on your family websites or Ancestry,com.

RE: James B. Bubach #106413474
I've been in touch with a grandson of James and he is buried by himself. The family lost track of Hazel after James death so my search continues. The Dubach family has a very interesting history and I'm going to suggest that his grandson Jim ask for a transfer and add a full bio on his grandfather's memorial. Thanks!

James B. Bubach #106413474
Sonia, James was married to Hazel Deehan, she was the granddaughter of my great Foley great grandparents. I'm having a difficult time finding information on her death, she might have remained after the death of James. Do you know if anyone is buried with James? Hazel was born in Cleveland Ohio on May 26, 1897. I add a memorial for James's father and will send you the links. Also Per His WW1 & WW11 draft registration his middle name was Buchanan. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Otto

Thank you for adding these memorials. These are my Great Grandfather Julius, Great Grandmother Anna, and Great-Great Grandmother Svea.

With the additional information you have posted on the memorial I was wondering if you might be related...

Thanks for caring!

Thank you! for correction and most of all for being such a caring person. If I were younger and able to get around, I'd be out there too. I thank the Lord for all the Sonia's. You are awesome in my book!
Have a wonderful day!
