Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been taking pictures of family grave stones for years. I now have an outlet to display them. Always looking for bio's on the people I have in the tree.
Many of the memorials I have created are just in the locality of family. If you see one of your family in my list, Just ask and I will transfer.
The surnames I focus on are:
My family, Lartz, Rogers, Hoerz/Hoertz, Hill, Schmidt, Kromenaker, Niemczyk, Schelfout,
My wife, Schultz, Kuball, Harman, Klappstein, Krugel.
Comments and or suggestions are always welcome.
Enjoy the memorial views.

Hi, John--

Okay--now I see the Rediskes are related to the Lartzes! Violet Caroline Lartz (#48224529) married William Herman Rediske, from Montana. I think William Herman Rediske is a brother of my grandfather, William Arthur John Rediske.

I just sent you a transfer request for William Arthur John Rediske (#75413149), as he is my grandfather.

I will certainly understand if you'd rather keep this listing, but it would be fun to have Violet's listing under a Rediske.

Hi, John--

Are you a relative of the Rediske family? If so, I'd like to make contact with you.

If not, I would like you to consider transfering the following listing to me, as I am a member of the Rediske clan. I am the great-granddaughter of one of your listings, William Arthur John Rediske, #75413149, buried in the Evergreen Washelli Memorial Park, Seattle, WA. My maiden name is Carol Lee Rediske, daughter of Arthur Clair Rediske and Lois Annabelle (Thomas) Rediske. My father's father is Arthur John Gustof Rediske. Thank you for considering my request.

My name is now Maitri Sojourner, and my Findagrave member # is 48841589.

Thank you!

Ruth Manning Memorial
Hello. Thanks for your recent note regarding Ruth Manning and the issue with her husband, Robert... I agree with you so I removed the link to Robert. Next time I am in the Ardmore area, I will drop by Gatlin Cemetery and see if I can find any clues as to their kinship. -Michael

Luedemann/Ledermann Family
Hi! I am working on translating and transcribing the church records from St. John's Ev. Lutheran Church of Massbach, Illinois. The pastor at Massbach served the Lutheran families on the Savanna ridge and in Savanna from the late 1850's until St. Peter's, Savanna, was organized as a congregation.

It appears that the family named Luedemann in the church records is the same as the Lederman family that has family members buried in St. Peter's Lutheran Cemetery. I have baptismal, death, and marriage records for several of the Luedemann family members. Not all of the tombstone dates agree with the church records. Can you help me sort out the information?

Hi John,

Where are you located? My father was John Bernard Lartz and my brother is John Arthur Lartz. We are from the Chgo area. Just curious if you are from Illinois or elsewhere.

Lisa (Lartz) Smith

ps. perhaps my brother has already contacted you; he does (or used to do) geneology as a hobby.
