That's me...in 1955|
I live in the high desert of San Bernardino County, CA.
I've always been interested in the past. I bought my first antique, a little china dog, when I was about 11.
In 1977, I started doing genealogical research. I acquired quite a bit of info before putting it aside and going to work. (My children were then in school) My research was relegated to trunk in the garage for about 27 years.
Two years ago I had to stop work due to back problems. I started the research again to keep my mind agile and active. It's hard because I can only sit for 5-10 minute intervals before having to lay down. I do have the help (or is it hinderance?) of my keyboard-hopping, monitor-obscuring cat, Oreo.
My goal is to complete an Obenland family tree tying all members in the United States together, plus their ancestors in Germany. At the same time, I'm building memorials here on Find A Grave.
Anyone out there having info on any Obenlands, (or families derived from Obenlands) please email me. And if you have pictures, all the better!!!!

If this is a relative, please request a transfer. I'm in the process of transferring all my NJ memorials and would prefer they go to relatives, no matter how distantly related.

Remains were removed from the old Presbyterian Graveyard on Jun 17, 1889

Not related, maybe connected. Trying to sort out information on George W Norton who had the nail factory who was born 1777 and died 1856-1858. It was told his widow (and this does not add up) married in 1837 William W Ater b 1785, but dates do not add up. I am connected to William Ater. Thanks for your work.
|Anne Rupert||Nortons in Lexington Cemetery|
Want to commend you on all the photos and bios posted to the NORTON families buried in Lexington Cemetery. Thanks for your work.
|Robert Thomas||Look for John Henry Thomas memorial 10114262|
Then John Henry Thomas is my 2nd great grand uncle his born 1855-1926 so you need add his parent John Frederick Thomas is 43163871 memorial and Sophia Catherine Numsen is 34436102 memorial for link family ok.
so John Frederick Thomas is my 3rd Great Grandfather (smile)
Thanks for share.

I just added a bunch of Lee burials to findagrave. I'm not family- if you want them let me know.
Do you know he plot for Francis Lee? If so, add it. I didn't see him in a walk about of this large cemetery.
