Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Salvation Army officer currently stationed at our Territorial Headquarters in West Nyack, NY.

I am orginally from Hamilton, Ohio with roots in Northeast Ohio (fathers family) and Central Kentucky (mothers family.)

I began researching my family tree around 1986 and since then have found numerous graves of ancestors in a number of places in Ohio as well as central Kentucky and Wisconsin.

I've also been fortunate to connect with living relatives that I had no clue existed and in fact found the grandchildren of my own grandfathers 2nd family whom my own mother did not know as medical issues, etc. saw the children taken from him (his wife had died while the children were very young) and adopted out.

I am pleased to be a part of this site where I can commemorate the lives of my ancestors as well as my siblings. I am one of 14 children (7 brothers, 5 sisters and 1 step sister). There are now only the 5 of my family (3 brothers, 1 sister and me) as my brother Ron passed away in June 2012.

Names I am researching are: Adams, Aebi, Brunie, Ellis, Ellwood, Fankhauser, Gfeller, Lorius, Medley, Meece, Riley, Schenk, Wyss, Yennie. However, I follow any lead that takes me out on another branch of the family tree.

Since I am a Civil War Reeanctor I am drawn to Civil War graves and not only take photos of the grave but also do basic research to find out a little of the soldier to post as well to keep his memory alive.

Also, as a Salvation Army officer I am intrigued by the graves of Salvationists, especially those in the SA section of Kensico Cemetery and the story of their lives as I am able to find it.

Please feel free to email me directly with any questions, changes, etc. on any memorials I have created. Also, if you have a relationship to a memorial I've posted and would like to take it over I would be pleased to turn it over to you.
