Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm the 8th of 10 children, have 42 nieces & nephews, 90+ Great N&N's with 11 GG's. My Grandparents' mostly are from Adams, New Market & Lakeville, MN., Lincoln, Nebraska & Hoven, SD. We are: Gerber,Schaefer, Suepert/Sueper, Grone, Dirks/Dircks, Roehl, Stork/Storck, Lenhartz/Lenertz, Klasen/Clasen of Uersfeld/Luxembourg/Keilberg Germany, MN, WI, Oklahoma & Texas. I love cemeteries & taking photos of headstones. I have books of Holy Family Cemetery in Nazareth, Tx. & of St. Nicholas Church & Cemetery in New Market, MN. We also have Roehl-Backes relatives from Oklahoma, Roehl relatives from Bird Island, MN. & Roehl-Knott family from WI. In May 2013, I found Roehl-Knott family in Pampa, Tx by doing a random search on Facebook!
I have no problem transferring any Memorial to anyone who is a relative or close friend of someone I've made one for, unless they are a closer relative to me. If I've added photos to them, you are welcome to use them, copy them, share them with loved ones. If using, please show the FAG memorial number and acknowledge photo credit: Photo permission by Find A Grave Volunteer Sharon Gerber #47191088, but 1st click on photo to see if I shared someone's photo,(with permission) as I will mention it there.
I've been into family history for over 45 yrs., & Find a Grave is all about connecting families together, to me! In fact, I would like to see everyone try to see how many Memorials they can TRANSFER to families/good friends, instead of how many they can make & keep! I have to say, I don't agree that when a person dies, they lose rights to their info. It's still very important to many. This is an awesome place, & fantastic way to keep people connected, & I truly never intend to be upset with a single volunteer, & will do my best to keep all channels open for what is wanted. If anyone has a question for me regarding a Memorial I've made or am maintaining, please write to me at my email! I've been gone several years, to care for my Mom, & am just getting back to this & so am relearning things! Please give me time to 'catch up'!

Shaving cream on headstones
Sorry to be so long in getting back to you on this. Here is one article I found - http://ncptt.nps.gov/blog/shaving-creamgenealogists-friend-or-cemetery-conservators-foe/

This is not the one I originally had seen, but it does not recommend that method.

Hi, Sorry, no not related. I just did some photos in the area a few years ago. The photo of Frank came from his headstone. Hope you can connect with your Jenschke friends.

Entrance photo to Fredericksburg Cemetery
Sharon, Sorry but I have no knowledge of this cemetery and it's entrances. We were in Fredericksburg years ago and I snapped that photo. I am not from that area.

RE: Re: Louise Knott headstone
It's an interesting little cemetery out in the country nestled between farmers' fields. I spent most of an afternoon photographing the headstones. That was a while ago but I've got some free time and thought I would see what I could add for the memorials that had no photos. I'm glad I could help.

RE: Knott, Karras & Kinney etc
I did not go to the cemetery yet, so I don't know if Andrew Lawrence Kinney is buried next to Clara Kinney. The pictures I found were already on the memorial pages. Perhaps the individual (clio) who took those pictures would know. I think the St. Croix Valley Genealogical Society just goes around documenting local cemeteries for historical and genealogical purposes. On their profile it says they transcribed and photographed St. Patricks Cemetery in Sept. 2013. I'm not aware of Clara being special to the community.

RE: Sorry! I hit enter instead of tab!
I have visited the Hoven area. I also went to the library in Gettysburg and found many of the obits that I posted on here. They have excellent resources there and a very nice Historical Building that I found more information on family. I have many pages of information on the Schaefer family. I am not sure exactly what you have, but I am willing to help in any way that I can. If you prefer you can email me. My email is on my profile page.
You also asked about Johnsburg, MN. A very small town with a church and a cemetery. There are a few Schaefer's buried there. My Schaefer ancestors are buried at Adams, MN.
You can (click) on any of my memorial flowers and save them to your scrapbook. I find most of them by (clicking) on Edit button for your Scrapbook. Then (click) add new item to my scrapbook. Then (click) choose from users uploads.

I hope this helps.
