|Bio and Links|
I am interested in tracing my family roots. Like most of you wished I would have started many years ago. |
My family on my mothers side is the Foster/Egloff. The Fosters came from Trigg County and Hoplins Co Ky. Nathan Foster and his wife Fannie aka Mary Peeler Foster had four children. I have never been able to locate where my great grandfather was buried as I was told he left my great grandmother to raise their four children.
The Egloff side is m mothers maternal side of the family They were Charles Egloff and Elizabeth Sanders Egloff who lived in Hopkins Co Ky Charles immigrated to the U S from Baden, Germany in the 1860 s Elizabeth Sanfers parents were Parham and Martha Cropper who lived in Davidson Co Tenn. They had eight children and most are they are buried in Davidson Co Tenn.
My great great grandparents on my fathers side were named Cates. Charles Hallet Cates was a Civil War soldier and is buried here where I live. He married Mary Huskey, who was the daughter of Spicey Cobbs and William Huskey. They came from Kentucky and had many children.
My great grandparents on my fathers side was Appie Cates who married Henry Maag. Henry s father was Henry Maag and married Amelia Fischer Maag. They had three sons. Amelia Fischer Maag remarried to Ben Clark and she had four children and moved to California.
Appie Cates Maag, my great grandmother jas a big extended family which I have located many of her family who left the Ky are years ago and live in Kannapolis N C I have linked them on my personal website. I invite you to visit it and see the pictures we are adding
Four years ago we started using Find a Grave and just was out there looking for relatives. It is not a numbers game for me. It found us roaming around in cemeteries trying to locate my ancestors. We have been doing many memorials of people in many cemeteries. If you see someone that is your relative please ask for a transfer. We mostly have been in cemeteries in Webster Co, Hopkins Co Ky Recently we have been doing many Posey Co Indiana Cemeteries. I hope we can make a difference for people interested in locating their family. We long ago decided that inputting names from a book from libraries or other sources are subject to inaccuracy. You have to do the actual walking in the cemeteries to confirm dates and names and families. We take managing memorials seriously. If you want the memorials, you tacitly accept the responsibility of editing them.
Thanks to my husband Milton Yuan for developing my family genealogy website I want to share the link with you www.webclad.com/genealogy It will link my family and ancestors and added pictures that have been collected and shared with anyone interested in the Foster/Egloff/Lively/Maag family

Can you check this one, I think maybe you have switched the photos of the tombstones, one of the Antons was born in 1816 and one was born in 1863. Thank you!
Thank you for posting a picture of my cousin's headstone. I didn't have a request open for it and was going to go get it eventually. It's been four years, I know, but I just wanted to say thank you for doing that. It's greatly appreciated.
His memorial is #32997110.

You didn't say...are you family? Do you happen to have photos?
Are you family to this man? Would you happen to have any photos of him or his wife? I am related to his wife Gertrude. I have his obit...if you would be interested in entering it on his memorial. Let me know. Thanks

That's awesome. I will have to take a look. I have been so busy I need to get back on matching people to all the pictures I have inherited. :) I'm doing good and yes it seems harder around the Holidays. My Mom was an AMAZING cook too just like my Granddady (Prentice) she loved cooking Holiday dinners. My Mom was the only parent I have ever knew. My Dad has not been present since day one. I'm also an only child so yeah Holidays are pretty hard. I'm glad I have an amazing family of my own. I'm hoping one of my girls will get the cooking genes. :)
Love Cousin Carrie

I'm not related to Kathleen but if you are I will transfer the memorial to you.
I added her mother also although Bob Alvey has her named mis-spelled.
Thanks Linda. I linked his father while I was at it.

I didnt know his Obit was published yet, but thank you so much for the info. him and his wife were close friends of my grandparents, and I knew them as well.
|Glenda Barry||George Adler|
I have linked them, thanks for the info. As I get time, I'm going to try to go back and do more linking. We have a lot of health problems here at home now with my husband's cancer and other health issues, so things just get done as quickly as possible. I think we all just do the best that we can. I hope that all of you are okay, take care, I'll talk to you again sometime.
|Graver Gal||RE: Nathan rettig|
I moved the photo. You can go ahead and delete this memorial. Sorry for the confusion. I am usually very careful to not add a dupe. Sorry.
