NOTE: If contacting me about one of my entries, please identify that person by the Findagrave memorial number located at the bottom of that person's page. That saves me much time in looking them up. Thanks........|
I'm a long time family genealogist, have made use of many genealogy web pages, and have decided it's time to do my part as a volunteer, as many others have done, by placing sometimes very difficult to locate birth and death dates in Findagrave. Some of my entries are for family but the most are from 'just going down the rows' in cemeteries available. My hope is that I'm helping at least a few unknown genealogists with information.
A word of caution to the unsuspecting:
Along with obituaries, gravestones are NOT infalliable in accuracy, most often having a partially incorrect date for the birth date. My experience has shown gravestones to be inaccurate in one date or another at least 5% of the time. Birth and marriage dates in obituaries have a higher rate of inaccuracy. Even death dates on gravestones are subject to error as I have found in many years of researching.

|Lisa Stewart||RE: Steimle|
Death Records (10 years ago) and only found Clara, Karl and Josephine. I haven't started any serious research yet--still trying to get everything input.
I am not exactly sure how this site works. Could I go to Greenwood and take pictures of the headstones and add them to what you have posted? I know Corey and I found them once (before digital photography was popular).
|Lisa Stewart||RE: Steimle|
Yes, I made the connection after I posted the message. I knew the name sounded familiar but there is another Meyers on the Stewart side and I hadn't gotten to the point of adding all the Steimles. (Sometime over the last 10 years my computer files were lost. I am in the process of re-entering everything.)
I am at a dead-end with the Stewarts and that's how I stumbled on the findagrave site. Can I ask where you found all the detailed information on birth/death dates? I searched the Kent Count
I am working on the Steimle family tree. Thank you for all of the information you posted. John G. Steimle (65489137) was my husband's great grandfather. Since the entry was so detailed I am wondering if you might be related. His grandparents were Arnold and Thelma Steimle.
|NUGirl||Charles & Mary Ida Fisher|
Dear Gary- Thanks so much for transferring the memorials of my great grandparents, Charles and Mary Ida Fisher (#53844883). I was able to add all the wonderful obituaries and information we found during our recent genealogy research trip. I so appreciate all your help! Best Wishes, Jessica Hackenberg

Thanks for photographing the Grace Lawn Cemetery in Middlebury, Indiana. I thought Lucius Knapp was buried in a mass grave in the Chattanooga Nat'l Cemetery because that was where the Battle of Missionary Ridge was. Glad to know he "made it home". I have his pension record and he had 4 daughters. The youngest was Harriet Knapp who married Frank Parrish. Harriet applied for information so she could join the Daughters of CW Veterans. She died in Mishawaka,Indiana (Oct 15, 1948)and is supposed to be buried in White Pigeon Cemetery in St. Joseph County, Michigan. Haven't seen her grave info yet and I am not absolutely certain of that but you can add her to your list of children if you would like (Harriet A. Knapp-b. 6 Mar 1863 in York, Elkhart, Ind. and died 15 Oct 1948 in Mishawaka-married Frank Parrish, 18 Sep 1883 in Jonesville, Hillsdale, Michigan.)Thanks again--Manwwings

Thank you so much for the transfer of these memorials. They are my direct ancestors and I will be happy to add additional information. Thank you again.
|Robin||Catherina Wahr Horst|
I believe Catherina Wahr Horst #22677643 is the daughter of Gotlieb #97506270 and Agnes Wahr #97504725. I am a descendant of these two (though not of Catherina) and they did indeed have a daughter by this name who was born around 1844, as confirmed by census records. If this is correct, Catherina actually immigrated shortly after her birth around 1845 since her sister, Pauline, was born about 1846 in Pennsylvania (again, census records for 1850 and 1860). Also noteworthy is the fact that Catherina was probably born in France, not Germany, specifically in Alsace-Lorraine, an area with a high German speaking population which later exchanged ownership between France and Germany a number of times. I know this because though the 1850 census says she was born in Germany, the 1860 census says she was born in France and this is a repetitive theme with her siblings too - some records says Germany, some France. It finally clicked when I found a census record of the son of Catherina's sister Caroline saying his mother was born in Alsace-Lorraine, which explains the back and forth of Germany and France.
Gotlieb and Agnes were born in Wuttemberg (again, census records) so the family was culturally German, even if Catherina was technically born in France.
I hope that helps! Thanks for all your contributions.

|Brandon Rowe||Frederick William Rowe|
I am the great-grandson of Newton William Rowe and have been doing some research on Frederick (Newton's father, my great-great-grandfather). I ran across Elizabeth Rowe Carbiener's (Newton's sister, Frederick's daughter) memorial (21764045) today and noticed that you said that Frederick lived in Pennsylvania. I've never seen a record to indicate that Frederick was ever in PA and would be very interested in what makes you believe that he lived there. Frederick has always been a bit of a mystery to us Rowes. We know that he was born in Germany in 1845 and immigrated to the U.S. in 1869, but there a few years unaccounted for in between 1869 and his marriage to Lydia Cripe in 1871. Any information you could offer on the subject of Frederick would be greatly appreciated.
I wonder where you retrieved the bio info on Samuel Gettig entry? (Record added: Oct 05, 2007 Find A Grave Memorial# 21980183). This is my wife's great-great-grandfather. If you link entries, Mallissa Jane Walters (#46072776) is daughter and her husband Jacob Walters (# 46072756) is son-in-law. Regards, Frank.
