Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family research has interested me since I was in grade school and we had to make a little family tree for ourselves. Photos have always been one of my favorite parts of the puzzle-either photos of people or their graves or places they lived. Our main family lines are Blanford, Booth, Buss, Calhoun, Castle, Champlin, Cheeseman, Chesebrough, Cochran, Danner, Denison, Epler, Ferguson, Hrobsky, McDowell, Messenger, Miller, Noyes, Painter, Parsons, Riffel, Robidoux, Schumann, Silgman, Smith, Stanton, Stewart, Tracy, and Viets.

My wife has a page here for people buried in local cemeteries who are not our relatives.

RE: Shelhorn sources
I'd like to email if you are comfortable with that: jmcglothlin at charter dot net

It will be easier.

I think your Julius Ludwig "Lewis" is my guy. He shows up variously as Louis and Lewis and with the last name spelled several ways. I've got him tracked all the way from 1850 to his death in 1922.

I've got him as born in Oct 1834 (from 1900 census in Rulo, Nebraska). He married a woman named Mary (b. abt 1840; don't know maiden name)- and probably married about 1865 judging from birth year of the first child, Mary. You can see them on the 1870 census in Summit, Wisconsin which is where Johann Casper also lived. His daughter Mary is my wife's grandmother.

Shelhorn sources
I am curious how you got the information on Johann Casper Shelhorn's memorial (42615944)relating to first name, parents, immigration, and wife's maiden name.

BTW, I'm pretty sure I have a son who's not on your list. My wife descends from him so that's my interest.

Hello, I just submitted an edit for Margaret's death year. It is unknown, however, per New England Marriages prior to 1700 ( she was aged 56 in 1670, so she died that year or later. This matches the baptism record.

It is amazing the stones have not been reset in granite like the old stones on Plymouth Burial Hill where John Howland is at. I am glad you were able to take these photos for the stones that are there. You got there just in time--the stones are readable from your photos. Many thanks for your work on our relatives. Richard.

Mary, What a nice surprise to see your trip was successful in finding Mercy & George Denison gravesite and adding the cemetery where they are at. The photos are beautiful. I noticed you added Champlin graves. How many people are recorded to be in this cemetery. I wonder if Elizabeth Denison Champlin & Christopher Champlin are here? Richard (Now to get George Denison transferred in here....)
