Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family tree for just over 2 years. Families researched include: Busch, Keeton, Lacey, Schmidt, Layer, Probandt, Williams. Plus the many branches to include but not limited to: Hilgers, Gueldner, Ullrich.

I am not a member of Find A Grave to see how many memorials I can add. I started working on my immediate family and while walking cemeteries looking for their graves, I took some photos of headstones I thought were interesting. That evolved into taking photos of some that were obviously deteriorating to the point they would be unreadable within the next couple of years. I hate to think that some families may never be able to find a relatives final resting place because of tht.
If you have information for corrections to any of the memorials I manage please send to me for review. I will make every effort to update the information within 24-48 hours of receipt as long as it is valid and verified.
If you are interested in having a memorial transferred to you please send me a request using the edit tab and include the reason you are making the request.

If I have posted photos that you wish to use for personal use, you may do so.

I sincerely appreciate all the work the many contributers of have made. It has made some of my research a bit easier.

Both of the above have the same b/d dates but apparently the names are confused..
You will have to correct your mistakes on the memorials you've have a charles Henry Williams linked to a spouse of Charles Henry Williams..should be a first name (female)not Mrs Charles Henry Williams..also, there's a stone photo on Larkey Williams' grave with the correct b/d dates..but minus the Towery last name from his stepfather (I guess)
I'm having trble getting my head around all this!
I'll try later this week to find the older larkey Williams' grave and/or marker, it's not far from his son according to our data base.

quick locate
on you profile page click on "managed memorials" and then click on "cemetery" and it lines up A-Z the cemeteries where you've created memorials.

You did not create the memorial but asked for transfer, apparently.

My dad
Hi Lesly,

Thank you so much for visiting my dad, Joe Leferson. You are right; he was an amazing man.

I really appreciate your stopping by; it means a lot to me. After 3 1/2 years I still can't believe he's gone.

Thanks again.

Walthall Headstone Photos
Hi Lesly, thank you so much for the wonderful photos of the Walthall headstones at St Marys Cemt in Bexar Co, TX. Would you please transfer the photo from memorial #62551348 to memorial #133693116
. The stone is actually the father's and not the son's. Because of your photo, I was able to place the father in that cemetery, so thank you again!
