Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing family history for several years now. I work on it about every day. If I can help someone I would love too (time permitting).

I am researching the surnames: Fritz, Ruffing, Rock, Westrick/Westrich, Schoen, Hepp, Kramer, Diehm, Bertsch, Phillips, Carpenter, Bachman, Richley, Austin, McCool, Bolen, Pollock, Starkey, Damron, Dillingham -just to name a few.

You may use photos I have posted to memorials as long you give me the proper credit. Thanks - Good Luck and happy hunting! :)

When requesting a grave photo, please try to Google the cemetery to obtain a phone number to get the grave location from the office/church. Please try to call the cemetery or church yourself, as it is usally a long disantace phone call for a volunteer. If you at least narrow it down to a section, I will search the said area for the grave. Some of these cemeteries are so large it is very difficult to find it, and it becomes very time consuming for a volunteer. Thanks for your help! :)

RE: Photos

Hello Dustin,

You're very welcome! And, yes, I do dig away the sod and brush off the stones before I photograph them.

RE: 2 photos

As always, you're very welcome, Dustin. Yesterday was my first day back to Mount Calvary since the snows came and it felt wonderful to be outside on such a glorious day!

RE: Herrmann

Good Morning Dustin,

You are most welcome, as always. BTW, I retook the Briggs photos now that the leaves are off the trees.

Still hoping to capture better photos of the Zahm Monument & inscriptions.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Dustin.

Hi Dustin, Please delete the one Blast from the Past I put on Mr. Schaffer's memorial. I don't know what happened, but it came out blurry!. I added another good one. Thanks, Barb

RE: Edits
Not a problem! I love this site and being able to see where every one is connected and look back at the ancestors. Most of the info comes from either
Or just my general knowledge of it being relation on either side of the family. Thanks for starting all of this!

Louise Roetz and the Zahms - Mount Calvary Cemetery

Good Evening Dustin,

It was a good thing that you requested a photo of Louise Roetz's gravestone. The gravestone was under 2" of soil and covered in plants. I would never have known to look for it without your request.

The Zahms have a large upright monument with their inscriptions that faces west. I was there early this morning...not a good time for that particular photo. I'll probably capture it later this week.

Elizabeth Briggs - Mount Calvary

Hello Dustin,

The photos of the joint gravestone of Asa & Elizabeth Briggs are going to be sub-par. They're buried in an area that is heavily shaded from both the east and west. So, until the leaves come off the trees in November, I'm afraid that what I got today will have to do. If I don't remember myself, please don't hesitate to remind me to do a "retake" in November.
