Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Riverside, Burlington County New Jersey and spent much of my first ten years there. My father died in WWII having never seen me. My step-father was in the Navy so we spent a lot of time traveling around. I graduated from high school at the Naval Base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, joined the Navy in 1961, came out to California in 1963 and have been here ever since. I have been married twice, have three children and eleven grandchildren. My second wife Sandy and I have known each other since we were five years old and have been married since 2006. I have been doing my family genealogy since 2010 and a member of Find A Grave for three+ years now.

I am interested in families in the Philadelphia and Burlington County, NJ areas with last names of Freck/Frech (originally from Germany mid 1800s), Broderson/Brodersen (Denmark), Stecher (originally from Germany mid 1800s) and Hirst, originally from England. Hirst were prominent in the cigar business in Philadelphia. Additionally, I am working on my wife's family, Wetherell and Goodwin in New Hampshire.

If you see a picture of a gravestone I have taken and want to use it, by all means copy it and use as needed. If you see a family members memorial that I have created and you would like to manage it, just ask.

I have added numbers for Florence's parents. I'm sorry they are her grandparents. I have no numbers for her parents, but they are:

Elizabeth Jane Harrell (1849-1890)
John Wesley Cornett (1846 - !883)

Sorry for the mistake.
They are in my family, but not close.

Hello, I am wondering if you could transfer this memorial to me. I have been trying to gather as many of my relatives as possible and link them to other family members (parents & children). Ethel May was my G,G, Aunt. I would love to connect her to her parents.

Boettler Seibert
This can wait until December. Just curious as to where is buried (also June). Thanks.

Seibert surname
Thanks for reply. I have birth/death info on Boettler but he does not seem to be listed on Find A Grave. Do you know where he is buried and anything about their daughter, Pamela. June and Boettler divorced in 1976 and he died 3 years later. That is all the info.

Seibert surnames
I see that you have listed several with the surname of Seibert. I'm searching for any information on Boettler Seibert. He was the son of Arthur & Amy Seibert. Perhaps you were unaware of him. He married into my husband's line. Thanks much.

RE: Hirst
Hillside is a very dizzing place, despite all the time I spend there I am still trying to find my way around. I'd say about 3/4 of it I haven't even walked through!

Plus, it's difficult to tell where the sections are. I have a map, but that doesn't help. There are no signs, no border indications so you never know when you've crossed from one section to the other.

Please leave your photo request up there (don't depend on me). There are other who also photo in here, others who know the sections better than I so somebody else may get to your request before I do.
