Bio and Links
Bio Photo Let me begin by saying that cemetery research and genealogy are much more than simply a hobby for me, they are my passion. I desire to capture the history of every day people, to make sure their lives are remembered.

In all my hunting, one of the stories that I've uncovered and touched my heart isn't a relation to me. In fact, she has no descendents of her own. Hers is the the story of a young girl known as Minnie Adams, "The Wild Girl of Brush Valley Township." If you get the chance, stop over at her memorial, read her story, and remember her.

Little Angels and Angel Mothers Project
A personal project of mine is to create virtual cemeteries for Pennsylvania infants and children and for mothers who died in childbirth. Please feel free to contact me with additions to these virtual cemeteries.

Read about Madeline Kunkle one Little Angel whose life story might break your heart.

Updates and Corrections
I am more than happy to work with others to make additions and corrections to the memorials I manage. That said, I very much appreciate when updates provide the source (that's not just a family tree someone found online). Unfortunately, I have been given incorrect information in the past and wish to avoid that.

When Memorials Don't "Look" Like You Prefer
Also know that for memorials of those who died 100+ years ago, the "traffic" is high as those individuals may have a 1000 or more descendants. Please understand that everyone has their preferences of what to post on a memorial and how it should look. The memorial may not appear exactly the way you want it (ex: the photo of the stone isn't at the top, there is death or marriage certificate included ), but there may be someone else out there who likes it that way. In my view, I may "manage" a memorial, but it isn't "mine." This is a public site, and the memorials are here for everyone. As long as what is posted on the memorial is respectful and relative to the person, I leave the memorial for the living to honor the dead.

When Resources Conflict
Always be aware that sometimes obits, death certs, and even carved headstones can have errors. In those instances of conflicting sources, I will make the best judgement I can and will note it in the bio.

Be Kind... Always
I do take pride in the memorials I manage, and I do my very best to promptly make updates that are sent my way. I take that responsibility seriously and always appreciate it when others manage their memorials with the same diligence and respect. One thing I've noticed across the board here at Find-A-Grave, kindness when making requests most often is rewarded.

Transfers
I also would eagerly transfer management of a memorial page of a person whom I am not related (primarily anyone buried in New England are non-relations) to a descendant as well as Greenwood Cemetery. I do expect that if a transfer is requested that you are an active Find-a-Grave member and will continue to maintain the memorial and graciously network with other descendants to ensure accuracy.

However, please respect that I retain management of the memorials of my ancestors. If we are both descendants, I certainly respect the Find-A-Grave policy on transfers. If you are looking for a way to "gather" your family and loved ones together, please check out the "Virtual Cemeteries" feature on your profile. This is an excellent tool for you to connect your family together.

SENDING EDITS AND UPDATES
PLEASE send corrections/requests by clicking the "EDIT" tab at the top right corner of the memorial page. Then click "suggest a correction or provide additional information". For transfers, state your relationship and include your member number. I sometimes miss messages posted below, so you'll have much better luck emailing me through the "edit" function.

RE: Ginter
Were you able to find out when and where Helen died? All I could find was Samuel's death cert that stated he was already a widower.

Glad you got the pieces put together!

Ginter
Jennifer,
Thanks so much for that touching story on Helen Ginter. I found a death certificate for 9 month old baby Mary Goughnour in 1911, whose mother was Helen Ginter and father Samuel E Goughnour.
Could this be your Helen Ginter?

Zadock & Abigail {Elliott} Putnam
Hello Jennifer,
I have left some additions & corrections on the system for subject relatives of mine. They are the parents of Lewis Putnam b. May 16, 1782 in Sutton, MA and the grand-parents of Jane Mellen {Putnam} Curtis b. August 6, 1832 in Grafton, MA, my great-great grandmother. I can attest to the accuracy of the information, which comes from our own family Putnam & Curtis records. My late Mother was a Curtis. I have searched for years now to find the graves of Lewis and Puah Bullard {Mellen} Putnam, who are known to be buried in Westborough, MA - I need to go to the town offices, to resolve this mystery!
Appreciate your help with these memorials.

additional info for Rev. J.C. Straub
Hey Jennifer,
sorry, just me again.

I just saw that Rev.Johann Charles/ Rev John Carl Straub is listed as a half sibling. This is incorrect. Here is just one of about 5 or more sources that I have used in my researching my ancestors. including this one because it has many DNA tests to prove the lineage.

http://dgmweb.net/FGS/Stra/StraubJohannPieter-AnnaMariaBarbaraHoffman.html

As for the findagrave memorial for John Peter I -
I asked Linda to correct it. The old info from Charles A. Fisher was sometimes incorrect, as he did not have access to the records like we do today. John Peter I did not have two wives. He had one named Anna Maria, Barbara Hoffman. Barbara was he middle name. Having four names was common in the old days for Germans.

Anyhow, Thank You!

Hello Jennifer,

I just wanted to let you know that I read some info on John Peter Straub II http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=67517770

My ancestor is his brother, Rev. Johann Charles or John Carl Straub. He lived in the same general area as his brother but I have not found him as of yet. Anyhow, so if you are related to John Peter II, Howdy Cousin! LOL

Anyhow, I wanted to share it with you, so you can add it if you want.

John Peter II, Peter Straub as he was known and went by, was an overseer of the poor. It was his responsibility, appointed or elected by the local citizens 'government' to look out for them.

Thanks for taking care of our Ancestors.

RE: McDermott
I don't know. Several of their children listed Higgins as their mother's name. I haven't really dug into it yet. Could you send me the info you found. Here is my email addy: menu659@hotmail.com

Here is something on your Patrick Dennis McDermott. I noticed on the census that one place he was Patrick another Dennis P and finally Dennis, all with the same wife and kids. I found a Pa Death Cert for Bridget under the name McDennon corrected to McDermott. I think this is yours as the person providing the info is Dennis.
