Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing my family and my husband's family reaearch since 2008. I would love to hear from anyone who has connections. The surnames I am researching include, Bruman, Houck, Knoche, Lange, Grobbel, Dice, Howe, Seasons, and Collins. Locations include Detroit, Warren, Centerline, Lapeer, North Branch, Burnside, Five Lakes, and Kings Mill in Michigan, McLeod County in Minnesota, Shippensburg, Pennsylvania and North Adams, Massachusetts.

I have established many memorial pages as I learn the burial sites. If I have established a memorial page for someone who is dear to you, please let me know and I will do a transfer. I am not related to anyone in Tennessee, so I am willing to transfer any Tennessee memorials. Please make your request through the edit tab.

Out of respect for each individual memorialized on this site, please summarize biographical information in a nicely written paragraph rather than submitting a canned form of raw data from census records, death indices, and other documents.

Although Find a Grave allows records such as death certificates or military documents to be uploaded on the memorial pages, I would prefer you not upload them if they are findable online. It is important to leave that space available for items like photos of the person and their marker. The information found on these documents can be summarized in the biography. It is nice to open a memorial and find a cemetery photo, marker photo, or even a personal picture. I feel like I am actually virtually visiting the final resting place.

Glencoe vs. Hillcrest Cemetry
It does indeed appear to be duplicates in one fashion. The difference is that the graves are not in Hillcrest cemetery they are in the Glencoe cemetery. I've transcribed & photographed both Glencoe & Hillcrest completely. I always check for duplicates prior to posting. There was no posting in the proper cemetery for these people so I listed. Hope that helps clear things up? The boundaries for the cemetery's are not all that clear unless you know exactly where they are.

Photo with wrong graves
Hi Louise,

This photo doesn't belong with Anna Mae Swoish or her parents Joseph and Edith Swoish. It is the grave marker for Edward and Caroline Swoish. Their names were stamped into the mortar on each side of the cross. You can see the patches, the names were like the name Swoish on the front but have worn out over the years.

RE: Joseph Houck
When I asked for the section and plot the office told me A1 is in the Old Pioneer Cemetery. I did walk the entire area and found the row for the 200's but didn't find Joseph or any clear markings for 500's. They also told me that it is possible there is no longer a marker or there never was. Sorry again!

Hi Louise

I am a descendent of Mary Klauka DeGroff and had been led to believe that she is buried at Meade also. I find a Henry C. and a Hezekiah b1877 d1918, but no Henry Hezekiah. I have a copy of the recorded graves at Meade & hangout there alot because its close to home. If I find Mary & Henry H I will ket you know.

RE: Slenker Photo
First time user. We were with friends looking for a "Ghost Town" of Alvira, PA. Found it and the cemetery where we also found the Slenker tombstone. Just last week I got the Find A Grave mobile app and decided to use it to see if we could find the name of the cemetery. Guess what - we found it, and also saw there was a request to get a photo of the Slenker tombstone. Just happened we were walking by it when I was demonstrating how the app worked. Amazing experience!!

Hello Louise,

Thanks for contacting me. Yes, I too have seen the information submitted at the site regarding Jacob's mother. While this is my direct line, I am ashamed to admit that I have not done much detailed research. I do have a copy of Conrad Hartung's will, and while his daughter Anna Barbara is mentioned, it does not mention her surname.

I have not been able to locate a will or a marriage for George Ranck.

I am aware, Note: Maiden name from D. Cert. son George is Forchoke(hand written) on son David it is spelled Forepaugh (typed) both may be wrong, still searching. On Find A Grave there are not many names spelled Forepaugh, just 3, none shown on Gravestones.
Neither are listed in History of Cumberland or Franklin Counties, Found 1 spelling Forcheck in Indiana Co. Pa., 3 Feorchak (czechoslovakia) in Allegheny Co. Pa. Still searching.
