Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi,
Thanks for visiting. I am starting some family pages so that we can keep them alive in our memories.

Thank you to all of the great people who have fulfilled my photo requests or helped me out with time or photos. I am particularly thankful to Victor Bergman of Celina for his help as well as the many kind and generous volunteers from Mercer and Auglaise Counties. I live FAR from you and I wouldn't be very far in my quest to document family members without your help.

Thanks to the person who posted my grandparents. You really inspired me to return that favor whenever I can.

Many of the old photos or information I post are from boxes I found in the effects of relatives who are no longer with us. There is a good chance that if I posted a photo of your relative or loved one I either knew them or can give you some additional information +/- photos of that person, just ask.

If you have photos to share, I am always interested in seeing them. My philosophy is that "when you know a person's face, you know at least a little bit of their story."

If you are going to use any of my photos on or the like, please give me an appropriate citation. Findagrave suggests that it be in this format: Bio Author. "John Doe". Find A Grave. 6-1-2008. Many of my copywrited photos, descriptions, as well as my assembled history of the Bergman family have been posted to a public ancestry tree without my permission. This was very disrespectful. I spend hundreds of hours trying to help this site out, please don't act in a manner which discourages this.

Finally, if there is one thing that every visitor to findagrave should take away its this-- even if it cost more, buy the GRANITE stone!

David Barga
Anton H Eilerman
May name is Dave Barga. Just as an FYI, I used the photo of Anton and Elizabeth Eilerman for my tree on giving you the proper credit. Anton's father, John Henry, was my 2nd great grand uncle.

Puthoff @ StL Clavary pt 2
As a point of interest:
I just noticed that you that Dred Scott's headstone is in the background. The tree that in before the street the light grey stone on the other side of the street just to the left is Dred's.
See number 19.

I got the rest on, I will work on the tall monument. That will be interesting. The Foil was ok, but still needs something more.

Happy Hunting

RE: Osgood Photos
You are welcome. This cemetery is easy for me because it is my home church cemetery and most of my recent ancestors are buried here. I happened to be meeting my 3 sisters at one of their homes in Versailles to go to Michigan to visit our brother so I scheduled another day to get these pictures done. I have been wanting to do this forever! I have many more to take of cemeteries in the surrounding communities sometime.

A Pictorial History of St. Patrick
I was wondering where I can get more info on this book? I have some people from this area.

Dr. Alois Willke
Thanks so much for the reference to Dr. Willke. I added it to the memorial page just as you had noted. It gives me a clue to a mystery in my family tree - my mother (who is related to the Willke's) mentioned a relative who was a nun at the convent at Mary Stein. I haven't been able to track her down. She went by "Sister Coletta" and was born abt 1875.

Hi. I got your email regarding Kathrina (111442162) and wrote back but the email bounced back to me.

So I'll let you know what I wrote here, in case you didn't get the email.

I checked the cemetery book I got her information from and it is the same as I have on her memorial. The cemetery book was compiled in 1992 and I have seen some mistakes in it compared to the memorials on find a grave. In the book, her name is listed between "R. Meyer (no date)" and "W. Meyer (no date)". I'm not sure if that is how they are buried in the cemetery or not. Unfortunately, this book does not have the burials listed by row or plot.

Hope this helps you. If you have her photo, and if you think it is right, you can add the photo. Thank you.

RE: Drees Graves
Yes, I can expound. The gravesite at location Row 9, Grave 280 contains a double grave of twins who died within 10 days of each other. They are Anna Elisabeth Drees (born July 04, 1874 and died January 08, 1875 - memorial# 102557783), and her sister Maria Agnes Drees (born July 04, 1874 and died January 18, 1875 - memorial# 101701734). On your memorial, you have Maria Anna Drees (born Jan 06, 1802 and died February 10, 1874 - memorial# 101701837), who is buried in location Row 9, Grave 284 as one of the two inhabitants of the double grave at location Row 9, Grave 280. I was saying that you can see on the double grave that the death dates are Jan 08 and Jan 18, as the church records indicate for the twins. The photo that I took at location 284 was a broken stone, not a double stone. See if what I am saying makes sense.
