Bio and Links
Bio Photo Dabbling in genealogy for several decades, I finally got more serious about it in the last several years--and promptly kicked myself for the poor documenting I did in my young and foolish days.

I am happy to transfer any memorials if you find a relative and would like to manage their memorial. Please use the EDIT/Suggestion a correction LINK so I get the correct memorial number as well as your member number. I don't have many relatives in this area, but take photos of local cemeteries as a 'thanks' to those who take them in places where my relatives are buried. Consider this my permission to use any of my photos in your research.

These Memorials look like they are duplicates...
What do you think?
I don't know what to do to correct this problem.
Do you know how?

Yes! Feel free to do whatever you like with the pics. I am glad I was able to locate them for you. I have to tell you this story. I had been looking the past yr for my gg grandfather who was a civil war veteran. I walked that cemetery 8 times and never found him. I assumed he was one that fell over or worn off. I am in the works of getting a GAR marker for here at the house for him and another GG GF that died in civil war and has no known grave. After I found your relatives, I did some more walking and was drawn to a circle of grave that all had new flags and war markers. Lo and behold guess who was among one of those?! Funny how things work out, If I would not of went to look for your relatives yesterday, he would still me missing!

RE: George Swartz
Am glad you liked it. Seemed like most of the people buried had Swedish names. Yes, feel free to use the photo in your family history.

RE: Henry Chapman
Hello :)
Sure, I'm glad to sponsor Henry. He is buried with his wife Sarah, and I believe other family members.
Yes, that would be wonderful if you could get other clear photos of that grave stone and perhaps any other foot stones. I'm happy to reimburse you for your time and expenses...just let me know! Thank you, Jason

Herman Johann Behnke
I have found that you have listed a Johann Hermann Behnke. I see you have added a picture of the front and back of the headstone. Do you know what the abck of the headstone says?
