Bio Photo Feel free to use any photos that I have taken. If you want to note my name and give me credit, it is very much appreciated.

My current project is Woodland Cemetery in Las Vegas. Big thanks to Miracle Mile Tim for recommending this project. With in excess of 24,000 burial plots, Woodlawn may take 2-3 years to complete all memorials with obituaries and genealogical data. It appears that approximately 4,000 gravesites may be unidentified and have no markers.

Started photographing markers in the center part of Woodlawn and moved westward to Las Vegas Blvd. Working on the south side of the property and then doubling back to finish plots on the east side. Ron Minor photographed much of the far east side.

The initial photographing and entry of 99% of the memorials is complete. Only small parts of two sections need to be entered.

Beginning to work thru the 1,100 older memorials entered that have no memorial photos. Many if not most of these may be difficult to locate and could possibly be burials not at Woodlawn.

Hi Jeff, Looks like you have been a busy Man! Great Job! I wonder what your thoughts may be on this one. If you look at Carrie McElheney Kingsbury's (memorial #63959845), her obit shows her survived by a son, Edward Swetland. Could this Edward Swetland be him? Thanks for all you do! Mark Weitzel

Help & Advise
Hello Jeff,
Since you are working in the Woodland Cem., I'm wondering if you would have any knowledge of someone that is buried there. I was at his funeral, and for the life of me I can't remember which one it was. I think it was the Cem on what we used to call 5th street,(now L.V.Blvd, NO) is that Woodland ? just at the top of the hill by the Dairy.

His name was Leo Wolf B: 1905 in IL, D: 3-1977.

Any help or advise will be appreciated, I hope it is OK that I have written you, if not, Please Excuse me.

Thank you Jeff, for making the family link to his parents. It is a comfort to know his Mother is once again with her child. And Thank you for the great job you are doing in Woodland.

Dear Jeff,

I believe Hazel's entry is not correct for my
Charles Martin Stafford (1873-1937) as a spouse.
I have Charles obit and verified at Norwalk Union Cemetery. On the photo you submitted it list Charles D. Stafford not C-I know sometimes even the markers can be wrong but I do not think so in this case. If you agree please remove her as his spouse.
Thank you, Pat

RE: Braucher
Hi Jeff,
My regular email is, I can send you an invite to my Ancestry Tree. My GG was Harry Braucher who died in a fire trying to save his furniture store. His father was Franklin S Braucher who left PA and went to Lincoln, IL where Harry was born. And yes, via Franklin we all trace back to Christopher.

Would also like to see what you have on Ancestry to compare notes. Sorry for slow response.

RE: Braucher
Yes Gregory, we are indeed related. Your Great Grandfather Harry H. Braucher was the son of Jonas Braucher (1817-1894). Jonas is the brother of my 3rd GG Father John Braucher (1811-1885).

They trace all the way back to Christopher Braucher (1729-1793) our 6th GG Father. He is buried at New Bethel Church in Kempton PA. I visited the various cemeteries in Berks County, PA (where the first Braucher's from Germany landed in America). I photographed nearly every Braucher graves stone in the county and have posted them to Find-a-Grave.

I attended a church service at Bethel Lutheran Church in 2011 that celebrated the 250th anniversary of the founding of the church. Christoper was one of the founding elders of the church.

The Braucher's did not remain in Berks County for too many generations. By 1800 they had begun to migrate to the frontiers of Ohio and then on to Indiana and Iowa. The biggest concentration is in Stark County Ohio. The Mudbrook Cemetery in Stark County, OH has nearly a hundred Braucher graves. In 2010/2011 I was able to visit Stark County and photograph several thousand gravestones in the cemeteries where Braucher's are buried. Throw in the families they married into, and nearly everyone in that cemetery is a relative.

Any Braucher research material you could share with me would be greatly appreciated. I have quite a bit of material up on

Look forward to hearing from you again.

Hi Jeff,

I got your email notification regarding Alfred Hyman, Find A Grave Memorial# 65838292, along with an obit from you, but I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do. --Adam

Hello Cousin. We are a bit far removed, but I am a descendant of the Bailey, Dietrich Line. Maria Barbara (Polly) Dietrich from my line married Christian Braucher. They had a daughter Matilda Braucher who married Benneville Dietrich. Their son, Charles Wilson Dietrich married Ellamanda Lydia Kamp. Their Daughter Edna Matilda Dietrich was my Grandmother.

Would you like to connect? I am Meredith Bailey, Edna Matilda married George Benjamin Bailey, who's son was Glenn Vinton Bailey. Glenn married Dorothy Mae Bear/Gring and I am their daughter.
