Bio and Links
Bio Photo Doing family research since 1976. I love putting together the puzzles and lines in a family history.
I also do genealogy for friends and other family members.
A long time ago I started doing grave rubbings on stones that were hard to read. It is amazing what shows up that you cannot see with your eye or camera (even tracing with a finger!)I have done this for others that have requested it through genealogy friendships. I simply use interfacing of a certain weight and a thick color crayon. Unlike foil or paper, interfacing does not tear if you need to get really down in an engraving.
Now that I am retired I think I will enjoy volunteering my time to Find A Grave photo requests. Many times I have found a family member in the same cemetery.
I appreciate acknowledgements for my volunteer photos, and usually ignore those that do not appreciate my efforts. Mostly, I find very polite folks on Find A Grave.

Thanks for posting the photo & rubbing for Agnes. I've meant to get up to that cemetery for ages, but just don't get to it.
Have you still been working on the Mayer's? I have plugged along. No big breakthroughs for me though. Just keep at it slowly but surely

Mayer connection
Thank you for your reply. I am the great-granddaughter of the other Christian Mayer and Katherine Shoenecker, son of Clemens. My grandmother was Mayme who died very young so I didn't know too much about the Mayer family history when I was growing up. Her sister Frances Huff came to my dad's home to care for him so I knew her the best, also their brother Albert and sisters Stay and Shorty. I have been in contact with Lee as I try to fit the "puzzle" together, as you so aptly described.I did post memorials to Joseph Benedict and his wife yesterday because I saw they were missing and I had copies of their obituaries stating they were definitely buried at Glencoe. I'm wondering about his parents' burial and memorials? My email is:

Thanks for the connection.
