Bio and Links
Bio Photo I come to Find-A-Grave to find my relatives and to link them together, and to remember my loved ones. The whole process of finding your relatives and making sure you have correct updated information is my main goal.

I've noticed that on Find-A-Grave there are some very selfish people who monopolize thousands of graves-and these are the people who are not even related to the people whose memorials they've created. How can they maintain these memorials when they have thousands of memorials? They can't, but they won't let you (the family member) either. This is not everyone but the people who do this know who they are, and they ruin it for everyone else who is related to those thousands of people whose memorials they keep hostage. Can we not rise above our ego? I call upon anyone who reads this bio to repentance. If you have been the cause of pain to any ONE of God's children by being quick to offend or be offended or your lack of sharing then repent and start anew your attitude. How do you think all our g-grandfathers and g-grandmothers would feel about this sort of behavior. It would simply not fly! We are adults, let us act like adults. Enough about this.

I am thankful to all who went before me and sacrificed for me to be here in America where any dream I dream is possible-if it be God's will. I will always honor them and do whatever I can to let the world know about them and their legacy.

Anyone can use or copy any photo I have taken...PHOTOS OF MEMORIALS: Increasingly cemeteries are banning the photo taking of memorials. This is against the law! The information on any memorial is PUBLIC information and you have the right to take a photo of it. Go to http://www.genealogyblog.com/?p=2089 for some legal explanations.

Thanks for taking the time to read this! :)

RE: Charlotte Skiff
Michelle,

Thank you for writing back. My great grandmother was Carl's (Charles) sister, Antonie Sack Giebenrath Handrock. Were you aware the German Letters are now with the Nebraska Historical Society? That is a long story that perhaps we should share via regular email if you are interested. I would guess you are related to Bonnie O'Toole and Cindy Behrens, right? If you would like I will transfer Charlotte to you.

Cheers - Maurine

RE: Charlotte Skiff Sack
Michelle,

I did as requested. In looking at the flowers you left for Melvina was she Native Indian? In the Sack research I had never run across that fact before. Please do not take me wrong - do not have a problem with that what so ever. About two years ago I found out my third great grandmother was Native American. Isn't it interesting the facts you find doing this wonderful hobby. Are you familiar with the Sack letters to Papa in Germany? One letter states how Carl and Charlotte met. If you have not seen this in my tree please let me know.

Cheers - Maurine

RE: Nehemiah Hama Carpenter
Louisa Carpenter is the person that my line comes down from. Also his parents David and Susannah if they are in the picture. I like the old family portraits and have been collecting them or my family tree. It gives my children and grandchildren a better idea of the families and lives in those days.

Thank you for getting back to me right away. This is a part of my tree that I've had trouble with for years and the information that I am getting in F.A.G. has gone a long way to helping me straighten my tree out.

Nehemiah Hama Carpenter
Hi Michelle,

Nehemiah Hama Carpenter is my 2nd great grandfather. His memorial that you manage is very nice. I am wondering if you could send me the names of the people that are in his family picture. I'd love to add it to their profile in my family tree. You can reply here if you'd like to or to my regular email: DinahE23@aol.com

Thank you,
Dinah

ordon Crook Carpenter family celebrated its 50th consecutive family reunion in Emmetsburg, Iowa. The memories are fading (my father is the youngest of ten children. Six are alive--76 through 91.) Family history, however, is ALWAYS discussed and pictures are passed when available.

With 50 consecutive reunions, we obvious care about our family history and there are many of us "younger" Carpenters who want to know the family history and pass it on. Please, Please, get in touch!

sincerely

Nehemiah Carpenter
Michelle,

Thank you for posting the pictures of Nehemiah Carpenter and his family.

My name is Mike Carpenter (Harvard, Illinois) and I am a great great great great grandson of Nehemiah--through his son Ezekiel, and his son Xanthus (Zanthus) and his son Gordon Crook Carpenter--and my father Robert C.

Please contact me regarding your connection to the Carpenter family--and any information you may have. It was only two years ago that my line of the Carpenter family learned of our connection to the Swiss Zimmermanns and the Lancaster, Ohio and Pennsylvania, Carpenters. We were never able to go further back than Nehemiah--hence the interest. My great grandfather Xanthus was killed in a train crash in Montana in 1906 so much of the Carpenter family history for us died with him.

As a note: this past August (2012)-the Gordon Crook Carpenter family celebrated its 50th consecutive family reunion in Emmetsburg, Iowa. The memories are fading (my father is the youngest of ten children. Six are alive--76 through 91.) Family history, however, is ALWAYS discussed and pictures are passed when available.

With 50 consecutive reunions, we obvious care about our family history and there are many of us "younger" Carpenters who want to know the family history and pass it on. Please, Please, get in touch!

sincerely
