Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family tree since the early 1990's. My pioneer German relatives originated in Pennsylvania. My grandparents and other family members moved to California after 1918. Our family moved frequently with our fathers job and our relatives are scattered between Canada, California, Pennsylvania and South Carolina.

My husband's pioneer relatives immigrated from Germany to Kansas in the mid 1800's. They landed in the Mississippi delta and took a steam boat to St. Louis. From there they traveled to northeast Kansas. Primarily farmers, the community consisted of hard working families, living off the soil. Every Memorial Day we visit the graves of my husbands family in rural Kansas. When I began to see all the headstones with family names of people I had heard of, I thought about how I have never seen the headstones for my side of the family. The cemeteries where my husband families reside are located in small, remote, rural areas. I took pictures of all the headstones I could find with family names and then researched the connections on Ancestry.com.

I am still looking for pictures of my relatives headstones. Although I am unable to travel to their grave sites, it is my hope that there are people close to my relatives cemeteries with the same curiosity I have found.

Through FindAGrave.com I have been able to get some pictures of my families grave sites. Thank you and I hope I can return the favor.

THANK YOU!
Thank you for posting a photo to Robert Allen Boudreau, as his headstone, however the photo posted is his brother Robert DEAN Boudreau's headstone.
Would you please remove that photo.

Thank you

I wonder if I may have your permission to use your cemetery photo on my family website. Check it out at www.freienmuth-shortridge.com/shortridge/cemeteries.html. This is how I'd be using the photos and obituaries I find on Find A Grave, with 'used with permission' in the caption.

Thank you.

Bio Photo Dear Concerned Find-A-Gave Contributors and visitors,

Regarding: DUPLICATE MEMORIALS

A former large volume F-A-G Contributor had a dispute with Find-A-Grave staff
and Deleted some 80% or more, of their contributed memorials, estimated to be
about 40,000 or so. Thus causing the rest of us local Contributors, over the
last year or more, to re-enter those family, friends and distant relatives we
noted were missing.

Once F-A-G had decided to take positive action, they reloaded all the Deleted
memorials from that former F-A-G Contributor, on Wednesday, 25feb2015. F-A-G
staff, undoubtedly knew they would cause tens of thousands of Duplicates, and
assigned their staffer, known as 'ProjectMgr' to work through their Merge
process.

Please be patient and allow F-A-G to work through the entire group of Duplicate
memorials.

Thank you.

Search for Headstone
Lyn, I am searching for a grave in the Oak Hill Cemetery there in Lawrence for an Adam Mugler.
He died in 1866, came to America from Germany as it sounds like your relatives did as well.
I have a letter from his wife, Anatasia Rapp Mugler and it states that this is where he was buried.
I will be contacting the historical society there as well as I have info. of first hand accounts as they lived thro the horrible burning and looting and killing when Quantrill came there on Aug. 21, 1863!
Someone would surely be interested in what she tells of that day.
Adam died 3 yrs. after that raid (1866)and she continued to live there for 22 yrs. I'm hoping to find someone in the society that might also find more info. for me........
Thank you for anything you can share in finding the spot where he is buried.
Sincerely,
Pat Stotts
