|Bio and Links|
I have been researching my family tree since the early 1990's. My pioneer German relatives originated in Pennsylvania. My grandparents and other family members moved to California after 1918. Our family moved frequently with our fathers job and our relatives are scattered between Canada, California, Pennsylvania and South Carolina.|
My husband's pioneer relatives immigrated from Germany to Kansas in the mid 1800's. They landed in the Mississippi delta and took a steam boat to St. Louis. From there they traveled to northeast Kansas. Primarily farmers, the community consisted of hard working families, living off the soil. Every Memorial Day we visit the graves of my husbands family in rural Kansas. When I began to see all the headstones with family names of people I had heard of, I thought about how I have never seen the headstones for my side of the family. The cemeteries where my husband families reside are located in small, remote, rural areas. I took pictures of all the headstones I could find with family names and then researched the connections on Ancestry.com.
I am still looking for pictures of my relatives headstones. Although I am unable to travel to their grave sites, it is my hope that there are people close to my relatives cemeteries with the same curiosity I have found.
Through FindAGrave.com I have been able to get some pictures of my families grave sites. Thank you and I hope I can return the favor.

Lyn, I am searching for a grave in the Oak Hill Cemetery there in Lawrence for an Adam Mugler.
He died in 1866, came to America from Germany as it sounds like your relatives did as well.
I have a letter from his wife, Anatasia Rapp Mugler and it states that this is where he was buried.
I will be contacting the historical society there as well as I have info. of first hand accounts as they lived thro the horrible burning and looting and killing when Quantrill came there on Aug. 21, 1863!
Someone would surely be interested in what she tells of that day.
Adam died 3 yrs. after that raid (1866)and she continued to live there for 22 yrs. I'm hoping to find someone in the society that might also find more info. for me........
Thank you for anything you can share in finding the spot where he is buried.

Glad I could help. God bless.
I am new to the site and a great great grandson of Margaret Pirl Haberman( my great gradfather was George Conrad Haberman....have always been told that Pirl Street in McKeesport Pa was named for the family as well as Haberman Avenue in Pittsburgh....
|Cindy South||RE: Robert Derflinger|
No, not a problem at all. Unfortunately they will only talk to me so much about him because I am not blood, so you can always call there and inquire more about it. Should a marker ever come to be, let me know, and I'd be happy to photograph it at that time. Take care...

Mr. Pirl was married, September 25, 1983, to Jean,

|Karen Potts||RE: Maplewood Cemetery|
I don't see anywhere to mail a request to Maplewood Cemetery. Can you explain it to me a little more as to what I should do ? Karen Potts
|Karen Potts||Maplewood Cemetery|
Lyn, Do you live near the Maplewood cemetery or do you have the phone number to the cemetery ???????
I have a family relation buried there and would dearly love to get a photo on her grave. I have had a photo request posted, but no response as yet.
Hope to hear back from you, Karen Potts
