Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband, Larry and I have been married for 37 years. We have 3 wonderful children & 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am addicted to roaming around in cemeteries and working on my family tree! I find cemeteries to be peaceful and full of history, so it didn't take me long to get hooked. I was bitten by the genealogy bug about 15 years ago and visiting cemeteries has been a huge part of finding my families roots. Larry has been a great sport about going with me even though he would MUCH rather be golfing!!!

Would you allow me to use the photo of the Baker's headstone in my family tree? It is not public and I would not share it anywhere. Thank you for your consideration. Cindy

RE: Aman Maurer Obit
Hello Kay,

Heinrich could have "Americanized" his name to Henry or Herman after he immigrated to the United States. There are Calvary cemetery memorials with the name Henry and Herman Maurer on the site who may be descendants or were named in honor of Heinrich.

It's a mystery.

RE: Aman Maurer Obit
Hello Kay,

I visited Calvary cemetery today to look for the graves of Aman and Barbara Maurer in Block A, lot 7.

There are three markers in the lot. The center one looks like it has the name Aman Maurer. The dates are not legible. A photo of the marker is uploaded to his memorial.

The marker to the right of Aman is not legible. It may be Barbara's headstone. The cemetery office probably does not have records of who is interred in the plot next to Aman since records prior to about 1909 were destroyed in a fire.

The one to the left of Aman looks like it has the name Heinrich Maurer. It looks like the names Amand and Barbara are below the name. The dates are not legible. I don't believe this is a child of Aman and Barbara since the 1900 census says 8 of 8 Barbara's children were living. Aman and Barbara's obits lists the names of eight living children none were named Heinrich. He could be the father or brother of Aman although I don't know why both Amand and Barbara would also be on the marker. I created a memorial for Heinrich and uploaded photos.


Thanks,
Darrin

RE: Aman Maurer Obit
Hello Kay,

I like to add information in the bio. It enhances to the memorial instead of just name and dates. The information may be useful for decedents working on their genealogy.

I have been exploring the Maurer family interred at Calvary. There are many! I will look for the headstone the next time I visit Calvary and upload a photo. The block and lot number is a great help in finding the grave since the cemetery is so large. The headstone should clarify his first name.

I'll keep you posted if I find the headstone.

Thanks,
Darrin
