Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been in this business for almost 14years and find myself learning something new on a daily basis. I originally researched only my family's roots however I soon found that my talents could assist others in their quest for knowledge.

Any information on my memorials is either my own or taken from public historical documents. If you are on a memorial with a photo I took, then please ask me if you can use the photo. Thanks!

If you would like assistance with your genealogy or more information on any of the individuals in my database, then please e-mail me!


I have put the following cemeteries into FAG:
Christ Lutheran (ORLAND PARK, IL)
Barclay - WI
Bell/Kelsey - Palos, IL
Brooks - Homer Glen, IL
Brown - Lemont, IL

There is a duplicate I created using the correct spelling of the name and then yours with the incorrect spelling.

The Find A Grave numbers are: 57739849 and 25843769 at St. James Sag.

Would you please merge the data so that I can complete of request by "jcs10der" saying I made a mistake. When I entered my entry, it showed no duplicate because of the spelling differences.

The information I found is from the headstone.

Thank you

RE: Gordons
I keep writing to Admin to transfer these to me as they are my relatives and I have already sponsored them and they say they can't do anything at this time which is crap! I have spent money to sponsor 42 memorials and she has not spent a dime! I even found her on Facebook and sent her a private message and the bitch ignored it too! I'm sick of people who think they can just ignore everybody. I would be willing to take them all over if they transferred them to me. At least people would be guaranteed to have all changes completed within 24 hours not this ignoring requests. This makes Find A Grave look bad!!

Phillip and Susanna Dieter
Hello from Kenny Bierschenk --

I am a direct descendent of Phillip Dieter (Find A Grave #100089477) and his wife Susanna Zeller Dieter.

I have seen that you have low-resolution photos of Phillip and Susanna Dieter posted on their Find A Grave memorials. I am wondering if I can get high-resolution scans of these photos from whoever has them.

FYI, they are my great-great-great grandparents, as follows:

Phillip and Susanna Dieter, buried St Stephens, Illinois
Valentin and Genevieve Dieter, buried St Joseph, Iowa
Nick and Katie Dieter, buried St Peters, Lindsay, TX
Val and Clara Dieter, buried St Peters
Dorothy Dieter Bierschenk and Al Bierschenk, buried Weatherford, TX (my parents).

Thanks for your help!

RE: Gordons
Unfortunately no, she hasn't even responded to my requests as I have sent at least 7 or 8 requests. I try to be nice about it and I have even paid to sponsor both Gordons' memorials and even written to Find A Grave several times but nothing has happened. I think it is very rude that she does not even respond to my requests. I have been trying for over 6 months. It is ridiculous and her profile says she wants people to be patient as she has so many requests to fulfill but I have more memorials than her and nobody must wait more than one day for their requests to be completed. It is sad that some people must act this way.

Charles Kott
While at Concordia Cemetery I searched for Charles Kott's headstone. I found stones for William Kott and Anna Kott who do not have memorials on Find A Grave, and for a Charles Kott. In the case of the latter, the dates are not the same so I have not posted the picture. According to the headstone the dates for this Charles are 1883 - 1954. If you would like to set up memorials for these folks I'd be happy to post the pictures I have.

Many thanks,
Denise Jones

RE: Christian Kuech
Thank you very much! Can I ask where you found the parent's information for Christian Kuech? It was from your FindAGrave entry of him that I learned his mother's middle name was Bertha. I was also very happy last week to have located & photographed his father Paulus' grave in another cemetery! Thanks again for updating the sibling info.

RE: Josiah Hopkins
No problem, GeneaProtector, I admire all the hard work you've done. It must be difficult to manage all those memorials!

RE: Josiah Hopkins
Hi there,
I meant to contact you, but have been swamped. Since her's already had everything (except bio & links). She gave it to me, and I made it like the one i gave to you... You can go ahead and delete yours. Probably when I'm done with it, I'll turn it back over to you for safe keeping...

Now if I could just find some other's to complete the link all the way back...

Still missing is his dad:
Sylvanus Hopkins (1716 - ____)

His grandpa:
Judah Hopkins (1677 - ____)
(Did you write on this one that you had a hunch, or did I write that? (Sorry getting old and forgetful!)

Of course the women are missing too. :)

You'll notice that I have found a bit more of the children... I'm pretty sure about Freeman, but I didn't ask for his owner to link him up until I have even more proof. Washington County, Ohio is so far away from the rest in Ohio, but the times and a possible son with the name Josiah sounds like the right Freeman...

I have no luck finding the oldest three:
Josiah Jr, Samuel, Anna; nor the youngest who died as a baby: John Pierce.
