|Bio and Links|
I was born in the State of WA, am a published author, and have been researching my families of Grayson County, VA and Ashe County, NC, as well as my German side of the family for 20+ years. In addition to names, dates, and places, I like to find photos of my ancestors and collateral family members. Let's not forget ALL the wonderful stories and legends that some families have luckily passed down from generation-to-generation.|
THANKS ALSO to those who transferred family memorials to my account. It is greatly appreciated!! I will reciprocate and transfer a memorial to you as well, as long as it follows FindAGrave guidelines. Finally, I want to thank those who volunteer to take photos of gravestones. You are absolutely wonderful!!

I was curious, if you had relation to the Weis line as I am doing geneology research for the Weis family and see you have a couple memorials attached to the surname. If so maybe we could talk more? Thank you so much for your time.

|JMGenther||Gottfried Meske Story|
Hi, I have been researching my family history and came across a story of my Great-Grandparents, Peter and Elsie Ginther (Genther). (Pete's older brother Simon married Pauline Meske, who is Gottfried's sister.) Here is the excerpt...
...Gottfried Meske brought Pete to the Avinger (I think the last name is actually Awinger or Auwinger) home in hopes of finding a wife for Pete. Pete was very desirous of getting married. There were five girls there at the Avinger home, two Avinger girls, Elsie and two girl friends. Pete said, “I’m going to take home one of you girls today!” First he ask for the hand of the oldest girl there and for some reason unknown she refused. Mr. Meske brought Pete before the girls who were all sitting in a row. Pete pointed to Elsie and said that he wanted her for his wife. They went into an adjoining room to talk about it. Elsie said the she didn't want to get married, that she was, too, young, that she didn't know how to cook and other reasons. Mr. Meske was pretty persuasive and Elsie, also, decided that she wouldn't be any worse off than she was at home. So it was decided that she would go with Pete. Pete paid Mr. Meske $10.00 for finding him a wife. They were married the next day, 29 November, 1916...
So your Grandpa was responsible for getting my Great-Grandparents to marry.

I have a couple of relatives in the US. The name Gottfried Meske and Barbara Winkler Meske sounds very familiar to me. My grandmother died a couple of years ago and I have seen very old photos with this names.
About 20 Years ago we had a visitor from our family in Germany named Clinton Getzinger. Maybe it is you.
I would very much appreciate a reply.

I am a descendent of Jacob Winkler #59494362, buried in Kidder County ND, but don't have any information about his family, I see you added a picture of him, that I have never seen. If you have any more information you would be willing to share, that would be wonderful. Thank You

I saw your photo request for Jenkins Cemetery and I have visited the cemetery. I photographed the stones that I found. It is currently badly overgrown the caretaker told me that he will be clearing it soon. I did not find the stone for Emeline. I plan on going back and talking to the caretaker and see if he knows where it is or if it was lost to time. I'll update you when I find out.
I am currently researching my Weis geneology, and I was wondering what information you might have. Johann Georg Weiss Birth: Apr. 23, 1801, Poland
Death: Jan. 15, 1875, Russian Federation was my 4x Great Grandfather. Any information you would be willing to share would be greatly Appreciated. Thank you

You are welcome. I want to clarify something and that is the Waitsburg Cemetery (2,122 interments) and the Waitsburg City Cemetery (14 interments) are really one and the same. The marker is in the Waitsburg Cemetery.
|Victoria Taylor-True||re Mary Lucille Wright Farmer|
Yep I am related to this Farmer line. If there are daisies left, then means I have updated them in my data files and are related in some level. R you also ?
I updated the memorials. Seems it didnt take when I did them or I overlooked it when posting..
