|Bio and Links|
My journey into genealogy began as a way to work through my grief after the loss of my mother in 2001. My father had passed in 1967.|
It has been a wonderful journey and I have met via internet and in person many people related in some way to my ancestors. Through census records I got an inkling of how and what my ancestors lives were about. Some went through trials and hardships in life, too and it helped me as I went through my own to make it through. I now know, respect and love each and everyone of them.
Shortly before my husband passed away I was able to locate his biological family: he was an adopted child. His father was deceased, but my husband got to speak with his biological mother and learn the truth of the how and why he was put up for adoption. He had total peace before leaving this life and entering the next.
Headstones are more than a decorative piece of artwork. They represent those who lay beneath them; their lives, whether long or short, good or bad, happy or sad. So I do my best to connect them to those they loved and held dearly to them to give a factual representation of their lives.
I put my ancestors on find a grave--to acknowledge their existence and to allow others from my many branches to locate those who are connected with their families.
At this point I want to thank those who placed my relatives here before I found findagrave, but have been very kind to me when I asked for the transfer of those relatives. It is an honor to be able to connect family members with their parents and siblings. You know who you are and I am grateful. Should someone come along who is closer related, I'll be glad to relinquish a listing as long as the family connections are maintained.
Those individuals I have placed on this site to which I have no relationship with, I will more than gladly transfer to their families as they come along.

I checked and you are correct. I wonder if I read a 2 as a 7 in the handwritten interment book.
I've made the change.

Carole, The place of death has been corrected. I can sympathize. After spending several hours on research, I am "dizzy". My husband and I visited this cemetery a few years ago. Thanks for the information. Pam

Done! If you are a relative, I can transfer his memorial to you.

Mrs. Weimer, thank you so much for posting this information and picture. Theresia was a sister of my great great grandfather Joseph Basler. I'm so pleased to find her final resting place. You do wonderful work and it helps or will help so many others. Thanks again!
|Scott Reed||RE: Mary M. Gisi FAG #66214572|
Updated both, Thanks. You might want to try the edit button in the upper right of the memorial the next time. Cuts down on the typing you have to do.
|Linda Alders||RE: Grieshaber/Alders|
formally from St Joe, now in the Springfield area.
I too love the research and finding all the interesting facts about our past relatives I am currently doing research on 8 different families, my family and my husbands. I am putting together a book on each one for my kids. It's hard to believe how mobile they were back in the 1800's.
|Linda Alders||RE: Josephine K. Vaeth FAG #87447648|
thanks for the alert, I had missed typed.
added some other info to her when I corrected the date. Are you form St Joe?
|BjJ||RE: Thomas A. Reeves|
You're welcome. Hope you had a wonderful holiday! (And if I had a zillion dollars, I'd make sure everyone had a tombstone!)
