Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in family history since 1978 and have enjoyed doing family research since that time. I love this website and have been adding memorials for our family. I hope, if you view any of my memorials you will contact me so I can share what ever information I might have. Some of my family memorials I have listed, not knowing the cemetery, in hopes someone who sees them may be able to tell me. I also have been adding memeorials for my daughter's in-laws family and some from the local cemeteries. So either way, I can possibly tell you something about a number of my memorials. I welcome your questions, comments, corrections etc. I have met some really nice and helpfull people through Find A Grave. It is my most sincere desire to help someone add new data to their research so plese feel free to contact me.

RE: Joan Sober
Your welcome. My granddaugher Melissa Thibodeaux and I did it in the rain! Melissa takes most of our photos as my 75 year old knees cannot take much more use! LOL

She and I each took a section (across the way from each other) and walked until one of us found for whom we were looking, She found many more stones than I did!

RE: Children of Carl and Katherine Dechant
Hi Rita,

Dave Haspert noticed these mislinks and reached out to me to confirm their correct family.

All 3 Munjor Dechant children cousins are in the family of Carl W. Dechant #50916714 (1869-1937) & Katherine Leiker Dechant #89222643 (1873or75-1955): Francis on page 36, Johannes and Anna Matilda on page 37 in the Dechant Family Geneology book compiled by Kevin Rupp and Tony Leiker.

Carl W. grew up on his parent's farm next to my great-great grandparents John Carl "Carl" & Katharina (Leiker) Dechant family farm and are listed on the same 1880 U.S. Census page.

If you are not related, I would be happy to accept transfer to care for their memorials, and update all available information for them.

Thank you much appreciated,
Russ Gunther #48350514

RE: Fred Autinrieb and family
Rita, I am working on a family tree for my neighbor and the Autinreib are in his family. However both his parents had died when he was 14 in a car wreck. He know little about his family. Just thought if anyone knew anything about this family I could get more information for him. Thank you for your reply.

RE: Saint Columba Cemetery
That's odd. I can't imagine they moved the body. Have you contacted the cemetery?

Fred Autinrieb and family
I am working on the Arvesen family tree for my neighbor. His mother was Lillian Autinrieb died in 1954 in Michigan in a car wreck along with her husband Ernst B Arvesen. Am trying to find out more about the family for him. He was 14 when his parents died. If you can give me any information that would be a great help.

Did I ever replay to your question concerning the children of George and Esther Hilton?

RE: William Whitley Memorial# 66612918
Thanks for your inquiry. These two cemeteries are actually the same cemetery (duplicates). I'll check my database later today to against the list in each cemetery to determine if everyone is represented. Terry
