Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Brenda (Boyer) Kohr. My husband Pete and I are researching his side of the family (Kohr/Smith)&(Minnich/Buxton), as well as my own (Boyer/Grimes) & (Beil/Shott). We are not trying to see how many memorials we can amass so that we can have our numbers posted in the "Top Contributors" catagory. We want to make memorials to pay tribute to our families and friends and hopefully help others to find theirs.

We enjoy helping others by photographing grave markers. There are times that we may photograph markers that are near the ones we were asked to take photos of, or if we see one with our surnames. If there is no memorial for these extra photos that we take....I create one. If by chance I happen to create a memorial for a relative or a friend of yours don't hesitate to ask for a transfer. I don't feel the need to keep memorials that I have created. (unless they are family) I only created them so that someone may find a member of their family or a friend.

Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble stone

It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born

Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood and bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so

I wonder if you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you

Author Unknown


Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

RE: FAG # 62261717 Levi Shiffler
Okay - thanks for the response. Have you tried to delete it? I know with pictures added on my memorials, I have to get the person who added them to delete.

Hi - the above memorial which was added in 2010 and that you transferred to another member is a duplicate of Find A Grave 37374668 which was added in 2009 and should be removed as it adds confusion and was already there. Although you transferred the maintenance of it, only you or Find A Grave can remove it.

Greetings Brenda and Pete!

If you are willing, would you please transfer my grandfather's memorial to me so I can connect him to his family and add to it?

Thank you so much for adding to our family!

Williams Grave Photo
Hi I have a mystery I hope you can help solve it.
Today I was in Pottsville I found Thomas Williams
Obituary it confirms he was buried in Charles Baber but when the Lady handed me a book of burials and it was recent Thomas Catherine and violet were not found as being buried in that cemetery yet you took the photo so Im thinking somebody missed it so maybe they missed others too. I wonder if you could help with this mystery, Thanks, TIM

Possible transfer
Hi Brenda and Pete,
Could you please transfer Janet Rost Rhoads 112031765 and her husband William Rhoads 112031983 to me? They are my husbands aunt and uncle and I am trying to link the family together.

Thank you

Ok, my bad. I thought you wrote the cemetery notes.

This copse of trees is on the Williams Farm. I know the son owns the property now, but at one time it was owned by Sam and his wife Carolyn. They also had a dairy - Bryncoed.

I am from Highspire and later in life I lived on Lumber ST. I thought I recognized the copse!

Thank you very much for your quick response to my query. I do appreciate all of the photos you post even if you are not related. I try to do the same thing when I visit various cemeteries. Thanks! Paula
