|Bio and Links|
|I began researching my family history many, many years ago. My father was most interested in learning about his relatives who were still alive (whom they were marrying, what their lives were like, etc.) while I was more interested in learning about those people who had come before. We made a good team.|
Most of my family immigrated from Bavaria and settled in the Buffalo, New York area from the late 1840's to the early 1880's. I have become very familiar with the United German and French Roman Catholic Cemetery in Cheektowaga, and all the microfilms from the major German Catholic parishes in Buffalo are on long-term loan for me at my local Family History Center of the Church of Latter Day Saints. Many are the hours that I have spent there.
I have made some wonderful contacts in southern Germany who pursue research for me there, and have met wonderful people here in the U.S., both in person and on line, who have helped me in many ways.
The major branches of my tree have the surnames Meidenbauer, Daut, Meier, Festner, Beiter, Wolf, Brachmann, and Hertel.
After being stymied for an unusually long time with my own family and getting restless for more research to do, I started to pick up on my husband's research where he left off. A whole new world of records and research is open to me again as I learn about his relatives who settled in the Baltimore, Maryland area. New cemeteries, Civil War records, Pennsylvania records as well as Maryland ones... I'm happy again.
Once again, I am meeting wonderfully helpful people. Most Holy Redeemer Cemetery in Baltimore is becoming very familiar to me, as is Loudon Park in Baltimore County.
The major names for this tree are Frank, Schmidt, Schriefer, Denzlein, Nuesslein, Shugars, Samilton, and Thompson.
I like looking for the history that is to be found in cemetery records and on cemetery markers, and I love the idea behind FindAGrave and all of the people out there working to record such a vital part of all of our histories. I'm glad to now be a part of it.

|JOSEPH BUDNACK||RE: Joseph Beiter|
My maternal grandfather was Joseph James Beiter who married Margaret Winn and had 4 children. George Vincent Beiter. Joseph James Beiter (who died shortly after birth). Joseph John Beiter and Margaret Mary Beiter (my mother). The three surviving children were taken from their parents in 1932 and placed in foster care. George was 13. Joseph was 9 and Margaret (my mother) was 4 years old. They were not adopted out but never lived with their parents again. The parents divorced and had very few visits with/from the children. My Grandfather had 3 sisters Mary, Matilda and Anna. My mother married Stanley Budnack in 1947. She is 86 years old. My uncle Joseph died in Syracuse in 1982. My uncle George died in Palmyra in 1997.

Joseph Beiter (you posted the photo of his head stone) was my maternal grandfather.

There is plenty of cognitive stimulation in seeing how interconnected all these families are!
|Michael Maranda||Uschold & Schwabl|
Thank you so much for transferring J B Uschold & his wife Barbara! -MM
No problem transferring to you...I'm not related, only the cemetery is a few blocks from my house so I photograph when I'm out and about. Best of luck in your research!

I did not list Cora as her own sibling - that is a relatively new findagrave feature that lists all of the recorded siblings - including the individual of that specific memorial. That individual is listed in a slightly different font.

I want to thank you for the wonderful information on this site. My great-great grandfather is John George Schwalb. My great grandfather is John (Johann) G. Schwalb who is buried at Mount Calvary. Another mystery solved. Very exciting! -Leah Roberts
|Kristen (Tozer) Kellick||Frank and Emrick Horvatis at Mt. Calvary|
Do you have any information on the parents of Emrick Horvatis (115053944) or Frank Horvatis (115053977)? I have an Emmerich, or Imre, Horvatics in my tree, born in Stinatz, Austria, likely in the 1840s or 1850s. Imre's son Egidius is my great-grandfather, and named one of his sons Frank. I'm wondering if there's a distant connection between the Horvatis headstone you photographed for Emrick and Frank and their spouses, and my 2x-great-grandfather.

Hello...can you please link Dolores Beiter with her parents: John B Edbauer Mem #92913007 and Anna Edbauer Mem #92912709. Also, may I use your gravestone photo for my memorial? Thank you for your time and consideration...Janice
