Bio and Links
Bio Photo MY HOBBIES INCLUDE PHOTOGRAPHY, GARDENING, SCRAPBOOKING, GENEALOGY, AND GOING TO ANTIQUE SHOWS WHERE I COLLECT VINTAGE LADIES' GOWNS FROM THE LATE 1800'S, ALONG WITH ANY OTHER TREASURE THAT CATCHES MY EYE.

I REALLY STARTED TO RESEARCH MY FAMILY TREE WHILE I WAS STILL IN COLLEGE- WHICH DIDN'T GIVE ME MUCH TIME. I WANTED TO RECORD THE STORIES MY PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS HAD TOLD ME SO THAT THEY WOULD ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED. LUCKY FOR ME I CAME ACROSS SCRAPS OF PAPER WITH FAMILY NOTES ON THEM, AS WELL AS TONS OF PHOTOGRAPHS! I FEEL THAT IT IS MY JOB TO ORGANIZE AND PROTECT THESE FAMILY HEIRLOOMS SO THAT THEY CAN BE PASSED DOWN TO THE NEXT GENERATION.

MY PRIMARY PATERNAL LINES I'M RESEARCHING INCLUDE STRETZ, BRENNEISEN, SCHECHTER, GOLDSTEIN, GRIMES, NIELSEN, OLSON, LOWENGRIMM, JOHNSON, STRICKFADEN, SCHUSTER, GANTNER, AND REITER.

MY PRIMARY MATERNAL LINES I'M RESEARCHING INCLUDE TOY, RUDOLPH, BROWN, SMITH, LININGER, TETER, RITCHIE, AND WARDEN.

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO VIEW MY FAMILY MEMBERS I HAVE POSTED SO FAR, I STILL HAVE A LOT MORE TO ADD-

1st Lt George E Richards, USA, Korea
Hi Stretzgirl1,
I was wondering, you added some info on 1st Lt George E. Richards, KIA Korea 1953, and was wondering based on your name you added cousin. Are you a cousin of his? if you would possibly know if any of his family is still in the area or how I would go about finding them? I have a personal question to ask them about him about where he was stationed, if he was on Okinawa prior to going into Korea. I have read two memoirs from buddies of his and they mentioned him talking about family and proud learning of the birth of his daughter months prior to his death.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you for your time!
Scott

RE: Mary Ann Bailey Foust
Hello,
Mary Ann Bailey married into my Foust family but not in my direct ancestral line. I have a little information but nothing on her parents John Bailey or her mother Mary Anna Stretz.
I am sorry.
she had married Michael Foust who is a brother to my direct ancestral line.

Sincerely,
Narda

RE: Mary Ann Bailey Foust
Hello,
Mary Ann Bailey married Michael Foust, a younger brother to my direct ancestral line, Abraham Foust. So we are not blood related. Sorry.I did not have any of the information that you shared so I will add it to my database. I hope that is okay.
Anything I can help with I will try.
Sincerely,
Narda Foust

Hugh Smith, Lininger and Confer families
Hi:

I am the GGG or maybe G daughter of Hugh Smith, and the families above. Also, my last name is STREZO, your names is very similar but that later.

I have no pictures on any family members on these lines. Can we communicate regarding the lineage lines.

I don't know how to contact you or give you my information on a public message board?

I would like more information.

Thanks
Pat Strezo

John Schechter 25217088
My records show his birthdate as 19 Dec 1878. Sources include WWII draft card, Social Security death index, and Social Security application.

The California death index lists date of death as 1 Aug 1960 (with the same birthdate as above)

Also, the extract from Social Security on Ancestry lists his parents as Luis G. Schechter (which seems to match), but his mother is listed as Sarah.

My relationship is through Miriam Baitler

Saw your note with the memorials for Abbie and Oliver Carno (7896044 & 7896045) at Sunnyside Cemetery, Long Beach, California. I have just posted a photo of their gravestone.

RE: Toy
You're very welcome - and I noticed other Toy family buried near them (and posted their memorials). Please let me know if you put in requests for their stones as well. Glad I could help! Cor.
