Bio and Links
Bio Photo If I have made any mistakes or omissions, please email me with the appropriate information so I can correct them. If you are closely related any of the memorials I have created, I'll be happy to transfer them to you upon request.
Any picture I have posted is in Public Domain and free to use or copy....
Please if there are any errors let me know so I can correct them. Also any record will be gladly transfered to a relative of the memorial.

Don't believe everything you see on a cemetery tombstone even if it is carved in stone! This applies to funeral home records, death certificates, and other death records as well. The information is only as reliable as the person who provided it.
The memorials I create are from mostly cemetery records. If you find a difference in birth or death year between the memorial and the headstone is because the cemetery record is a date is taken from a legal document. A tombstone is not a legal document. So stop trying to get it changed.

Edward Graul Family
Thank you for creating the memorials for the Graul family. Another Graul from that family has died in Florida. He is the son and grandson of Edward Jr. and Sr.
His name is Stephan H. Graul, and is my nephew by marriage to my niece. He died one week ago and I would appreciate it if you would transfer that family to me and I will add his info.
I am the family historian and try to keep all the facts accurate.
Is there any other information you need from me?
We all live in Florida now instead of Dayton.
Thank you.

Andrew Katulak at Calvary Cem. in Kettering
Thank you for creating the Katulak pages at Find-A-Grave. I know the amount of work it took.

I have found a discrepancy between Andrew Katulak's records and what is on his page as a birth date. His stone says 1860 and his death certificate says 30 Nov 1860. His page says 30 Nov 1866.

I'm happy to send you copies of both items as proof to change the page. Just let me know where.

James Joseph Fitzmartin

Would it be possible to have my great uncle James Joseph Fitzmartin transferred to me? (Find A Grave Memorial# 64614506). His parents (my great grandparents) had fourteen children. I've managed to link the relationships to thirteen of the fourteen children, only lacking James.

Michael Family
I was looking at the memorial for George Peter Michael (13268736) and noticed that the children are grouped incorrectly.

Mary Isabella Rauch (George's 2nd wife) is the mother of the following:
Jesse Peter Michael (1877-1959)
George Oscar Michael (1880-1961)
Albert Irvan Michael (1882-1968)

Everyone else belongs to Sarah Elizabeth Myers:
Ellen Mary 1857-1924
Noah 1858-1859
Mary Ann 1860-1951
Lucinda Catherine 1826-1955
Emma M 1863-1927
Amanda Elizabeth 1865-1966
Perry 1868-1968
Charles Elmer 1870-1967

George Michael is my 3rd great grandfather -- my connection is through Lucinda Michael.

I have labelled photos, postcards, and some letters that were handed down from Lucinda to Bertha to LaDonna Smyer Bierly. I've done lots of research on for this branch of the family under the Smyer, Mathias, Bierly family tree. I also have put some of the photos in my tree for this family.

Your research here on Find a Grave has been invaluable. Thank you.

Renee Bruggeman
I believe that Albert P Bruggeman from Ohio was a Navy man married to a Matilda Unknown and lived at 691 SW Evelyn Place NW in Atlanta in the 1940 and 50s. He had a son, Harvey, and I believe Harvey had a daughter named Renee. Do you have any information on this? I think Renee lived with her grandmother, a Stockert, for a while. Believe it or not, if I could locate Renee I would instantly die and go to heaven! She was a casual friend of mine, but I liked her a lot!

Francis Parrett & Margaret Shade
Hi there,

Thank you for Frank Roten's edits, and being so good at what you do to honor the memory of our ancestors! I appreciate it, and I'm sure they do too. :-) Thanks also for trying to fulfill my photo request for Margaret Sprague Shade, my great aunt. She was such a vibrant, fun loving person.

BTW, I noticed your virtual cemetery for the West Carrollton class of 1960. My dad (Michael Swank) was in the class of 1959, and our good friend Lonnie Thacker was class of 1960 - perhaps you remember crossing paths with one or both of them?

Thanks again,
