Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an avid genealogist. Paternal lines of interest include Murphy, McLane, Jordan, Ruane, Stark, Hausrath, Farber, Engel, Robertson, Henning. Maternal lines of interest include Protani, Mastracci, Incitti, Fiori, Rosenberger, Fleckenstein, Kostohryz, Bednar and Cunat. I make a note when I am related to one of the people I add to the database, although sometimes I forget to do so. If you're a cousin, feel free to write me. I'm always happy to talk to kin.I have also "adopted" a few cemeteries in Baltimore which I have been trying to document. Lately, I have been making an effort to do some simple research on the people beneath the graves I have been photographing. If you are related to one of them and see any mistakes, please write and correct me. I would also be happy to take down any memorial or transfer it so that you can make your own for your relative.

I am also a writer and filmmaker.

Read my memoir "The Promise, or the Pros and Cons of Talking with God"

I noticed you have added gravesites of some members of the Lewald family. Are you a relative? My daughter married Thomas William Lewald, Jr. Hope to hear from you.

RE: Emanuel Hise

So nice to hear from you. I am most curious about William Hise - what his story is and when he came to America. I see that you have his birth place as different from what I have found. I saw on the census that it is listed as Wurtemberg, Germany and in the obituary for Emanuel (his son) the birth place for him is Baden-Wurttemberg. Do you know much about their story? What year did they come, how old, was the name really Hise or the suggested Heise? Thanks for any information you may have. One of my cousins is working on the genelogy and is working with a librarian in Staunton, Virginia. I found the court case of how Emanuel lost his land in Stokesville, Va. Interesting.

Emanuel Hise

My name is Peggy Hise Foley. My father was Paul Berlie Hise. John Paul Hise is father (my grandfather). I believe Emanuel Hise was the father of John Paul Hise. Do you have any further information on Emanuel Hise? When he moved to the US, where he first lived, etc.
This is my first time in trying to build my family tree and am excited to see your name.

Thank you,
