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.

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.

Hi John,

I'm interested in your Handel line. My 3g grandfather is Frederick Handel #134339739. His death record lists his father as Fred....I believe his parents may be Friederich & Maria Agnes (Keinath) Handel. I'm curious to find out if your Christoph Friederich Handel #80137920 may be a brother? My Fred lived most of his life in Salem Twp., Carroll County. He was born, as was your Christoph, in Germany. According to 1900 & 1910 census', my Fred arrived in 1871. Could we possibly have a connection? Feel free to email me directly:

John C. Rogers
I'm interested to your connection to John C. and Marilla Rogers. I believe that my second great grandmother, Cornelia (Rogers) Colby Dean, was his sister. I was not aware that Marilla's maiden name was Fenner. I also have Fenner ancestors, but no Roswell in my tree (yet!). I would love to hear from you.

RE: Susan Oberheim
Susan Oberheim's parents are William R Smith & Elizabeth Stouffer Smith and my great,great great grand father. One of Susan's sisters is Hannah Smith Fulrath and she is my great, great grandmother. I like to connect Susan to her parents and siblings. Are you related to her too?
