This is all my brothers fault! He's the one doing the genealogy.... He's traced our family Back to 1635 in Germany on my mothers side, and to WASHINGTON and MADISON on my fathers side. |
I made the mistake of going for a ride with him one day on a visit to Kansas.... ended up taking 360 pictures for a little(?) cemetery in JACKSON CO, KA (including the new CEMETERY PHOTO,.... and I hate Cemetery photos!!). Since then, I have done 43 complete Cemeteries, Including adding new ones in the State of Iowa, and Chippewa & Iowa(2) Counties in WI. and Thunder Bay, Ontario. I'm currently working on 5 in Wisconsin.
As corrections and additions are an important part of FAG, please send all SAC's you have using the EDIT button on the memorial.
You may use the photos I've posted for your own personal use. Please follow the FAG guidelines regarding credit, etc.
Do not ask for transfers if you are merely "COLLECTING" (IE you have 34 entries, but are "managing" 50). That's what virtual cemeteries are for. Use the EDIT button for any additions and corrections that you have [with 43 cemeteries & 14000+ entries, I don't wish to chase names].
I have received MANY transfers from "inactive" or "going inactive" members, so my numbers are increasing. I am also now trying to research and add more Bio information for my entries.
My real job is to watch over MY 400+ year old oak, a "Heritage" tree, 16+ feet around. It's one of 7 over 10 feet on the farm.

Thanks for the photo of my great-grand parents grave site at the Pennington Cemetery. I will link my side of the family back to their numbers.

Thank you so much for going to the cemetery and taking a picture of the stone of Paulina Roum. it is very much appreciated. Doris Venden
I again wanted to thank you for the Weller photos in the Pennington cemetery. I was in the area October 9th and was able to visit the cemetery and see the graves you were so gracious to provide photos for. I also found a grave stone at the north end of Glenn Weller who was the son of C P , so it was an interesting visit. Keep up the good work you do.
|Brunker family||Raphael Brunker|
This person was my favorite uncle! The Brunkers are of Irish descent, not German. They arrived in Ridgeway, WI in 1847, the worst year of the Irish famine.
My mother and her two sisters are still alive, the siblings of Ray.
Any of you who think he is German are wrong! He was 100% Irish American.
Thanks for linking Peter to his parents so quickly. Also, thanks for the add'l information. I've added it to the parents' bio pages as you requested.
|Jan Darby||Broad Family|
I don't know if you noticed, but I have pictures of the Bruneau family on Find A Grave. I am actually from the line of Emanuel Broad's daughter Griselda, who married John McCauley and moved to North Dakota where she lived for the rest of her life. Her husband was a farmer and they ended up having a very hard life with several of their children dying before their time. I don't know if Griselda (known as Isobel) ever went back to Michigan to visit. I have quite a bit on Find A Grave for Emanuel Broad's sister Jane (Broad) Williams who lived in Michigan for many years and then relocated with her family to California where they lived for the rest of their lives.
