Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Brenda (Boyer) Kohr. My husband, Pete, and I are researching his side of the family (Kohr/Smith)&(Minnich/Buxton), as well as my own (Boyer/Grimes)&(Beil/Shott). We are not trying to see how many memorials we can amass so that we can have our numbers posted in the "Top Contributors" catagory. We want to make memorials to pay tribute to our families and friends and hopefully help others to find theirs.

We enjoy helping others by photographing grave markers. There are times that we may photograph markers that are near the ones we were asked to take photos of, or if we see one with our surnames. If there is no memorial for these extra photos that we take....I create one. If by chance I happen to create a memorial for a relative or a friend of yours don't hesitate to ask for a transfer. I don't feel the need to keep memorials that I have created. (unless they are family) I only created them so that someone may find a member of their family or a friend.

A guideline is a statement by which to determine a course of action. By definition, following a guideline is never mandatory. Guidelines are NOT binding.

Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble stone

It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born

Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood and bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so

I wonder if you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you

Author Unknown


Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

Thank you so much for all the Eckenrode's you have entered. In fact Thank you for adding so many people and so many pictures. You have brought joy to a lot of people.

Do you happen to have Eckenrode relatives or am I just lucky you do a lot of the same cemeteries.

RE: Beil Connection

Can you send me a link to your family tree at Ancestry? My personal email is

You mentioned your grandfather was Clarence Beil. I guess that makes us distant cousins.

Beil Connection
Hi Brenda and Pete,

From the flowers and the note you left on Jacob George Beil's memorial page, I see that he was your great-grandfather. My great-grandmother, Louisa Beil Price O'Brien, was Jacob's sister, which makes us kin.

I only recently found information on my Beil line. Do you have very much information on the Beil's?

I would be interested in comparing notes.
