Bio and Links
Bio Photo Greetings! I am a family history enthusiast as well as a librarian. I love helping people find their roots and I enjoy wandering through the local cemeteries to photograph and decipher the stones. I want to memorialize as many headstones as I possibly can, especially the sandstone ones that are eroding quickly - to save them for the generations to come. The photos I post are for open for anyone to use and I welcome anyone to use them for their family histories. I am always willing to transfer memorials to family members.

I have copies of the cemetery indexes for Stearns, Benton and Sherburne Counties that I am updating as I go. These indexes are great tools for matching against cemetery records to verify names, death dates, etc. Feel free to email me with any questions about people buried in these counties.

RE: Mary & Aaron Ressler
My line actually goes through Jacob and his first wife Caroline Geedy Ressler. Their daughter Lydia is my great great grandmother. I havenít done much work on Maryís line, but everything I have come across points to Maryís maiden name being Bailey. I believe her fatherís name was Abiden Bailey and her mother Vashti Brooks.
