Bio Photo Hello, everyone!

After adding quite a few memorials over the years, it was both an honor and a heartbreak to add one for my dear mother, Muriel Bernice "Bea "Abegg.

I just love this site. I'm one of our family historians I suppose, and the amazing amount of work the FindAGravers have done all over the world is priceless. Tell everyone you know about FindAGrave!

I'm happy to transfer ownership of memorials. Just click on the "add a correction" button. Feel free to e-mail me for help. :)

One of the memorials I added is on the list of unusual monuments: Dr. Fritz Abegg, buried with his wife Ella Fetz Abegg in New Jersey. They were my stepdad's grandparents, and we were surprised and pleased to see the monument on the list!

I've added records of many relatives to FindAGrave as well as some entries in McLouth Cemetery, the cemetery in my hometown of McLouth, Kansas. If there is any information you want to add or change, including photos, please let me know and I'd be very happy to help.

I hope the information I'm adding to this site is very helpful to you. Please take a moment to let me know if it has helped you in any way!

RE: George Burk
Leslie, I don't believe I am related to this George Burk but I found the newspaper article while search for my own Burks. He may be related to me but as of now I have not been able to connect him to my tree.

Leslie, I saw an old message you had left on a Giannini grave. All the information on the family of Antonio Giannini and Maria Modena, and the circumstances of their immigration and work here (and some family names in Italy) that we had collected through 1999 are in The Giannini's of Virginia, Third Edition (1999). Of course, much of that information would apply to their brother, your ancestor, as well. Here's the link to order, if you don't already have a copy.

We have a Giannini research list on yahoo (mostly inactive now) and a facebook (social) group as well. You'll find those links listed under my Find A Grave bio page.

Henrietta "Nettie" Johnson Brown
Can you help me solve a problem?
On Henrietta "Nettie" Johnson Brown's page you left her a message saying she was married to your grandmother's uncle Albert.
Her husband on the find a grave page is listed as Albert Thomas Brown. Is this correct??
Her parents are listed as: William & Rebeca Johnson?? Is this correct?
I have seen the parents on Ancestry as Franklin and Sarah Johnson??
So confusing when people post the wrong information.
Hope you can help me fix this.

Thank you for linking these babies to their parents, and for entering so many of my relatives on find a grave!

Do you have anything more on Robert A White? Was he ever married or have any children?

Thank you so much for all your efforts. My mother was also a Rumbaugh, born in PA. I first ran into Charles Rumbaugh in Collin Co.,TX while working on my father's lines. Even odder, my paternal grandfather King was reared at Bowser, not far from Locker in San Saba Co.
Your Charles descends from David Rumbaugh Jr
and wife Susanna Truby who moved from Armstrong Co. PA to Fulton Co. IN. I descend from David's brother John Rumbaugh who remained in Armstrong Co. and his wife Elizabeth Truby, sister of Susanna. John and Elizabeth and Elizabeth and Susanna's parents all buried in the Rumbaugh Cem. Perry Twp. Armstrong Co. PA as is their grandmother Anna Maria "Mary Ann" Drum Lauffer. Should be the Truby Cemetery as was originally their land. This land remained in my family down to my generation. My line came to TX in the oil business in the early 1900s.
Do you have information on Charles Marvin Rumbaugh after the 1920 census? I found Jesse in Fort Worth and Louisa Cagle, but what happened to Charles M, Suzie, Marvin M and Alma?
As you can tell, I am a genealogy nut who wants the smallest bud on a twig on the family tree.

RE: Ida Reynolds
I've been in touch now with SMS. It's all straightened out. We are not related, but SMS cares very much for the Reynolds lineage because he/she is related to my great-grandmother's second husband. So there you go. As for the timing, I keep finding coincidences in genealogy all the time. Those and the mysteries are what make it fun. Good luck with your pursuits as well!

RE: Ida May Reynolds
Do you know how I can reach SMS? They do not have an email set up. I'm still figuring out Findagrave and not real sure about all its ups and downs and secrets. Thanks!
