Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in Waverly, Iowa & moved with my family down to Leavenworth, Kansas in 1993. I am a May 2008 graduate of Kansas State University and was actively involved with the marching band. I'm a huge fan of Kansas State football and hold season tickets.

One of my biggest interests is in Genealogy and I absolutely love History so its a perfect pairing. I'm fascinated with family histories.

Family names I'm interested in:
Bergman (in IA)
Brandt/Lampe (in IA)
Halweg/Friedrich (in IA)
Tjebkes (in IA)
Stelzer (in IA and MN)
Bohner (in IA and PA)

As for the photos I take for Find A Grave, if you would like me to transfer any memorials to you I would be more than happy to oblige as I am not interested in stacking up numbers for memorials managed. I think those that have that mindset are very rude people. The only memorials I will not transfer are those for my own family unless very distantly related.

Also, if you would like a copy of the original photos posted to memorials please let me know as I am more than happy to send them to you.
I will sometimes photograph other plot markers near the graves where I am fulfilling photo requests. If they have no memorial I create one for them and attempt to give them a story based on what I find on

If at any point you come across a memorial I've created for your ancestor and I have added information you DO NOT want on their memorial, please do not hesitate to let me know and I will gladly remove it. The same applies if there is something that you DO want added to their memorial.

If I have included an obituary on any memorial page and you would like a clipping from the actual newspaper please let me know and I will accomodate.

If I have added something you wish to be removed PLEASE BE NICE ABOUT IT when letting me know as I am not trying to upset anyone. I don't wish to be scolded like a child.

UPDATE: Pending
I have cemetery maps for:
Howard Cemetery (Elma, IA)
Maple Leaf Cemetery (Elma, IA)
Mount Muncie Cemetery (Leavenworth, KS)
- sections 15, 10, 22, 26, 34, 35, & 36
Mount Calvary Cemetery (Leavenworth, KS)
- sections 1, 2, 4, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19
- full cemetery

Thank you so very much for the photos you took at Mt. Muncie. I especially appreciate the extra effort that you went to getting photos of the surrounding graves and creating Memorials.
How/where did you happen to find a map for Mt. Muncie? I would love to get one as I have a lot more relatives buried there. I try to get over there when the office is open so I can find out where the graves are located.
Blessings to you for your kindness,

RE: William Magers
Hi, Shannon!
Thank you for the photos; however, this photo is of Wm's son and family, Wm F. 1885-1955.
I was requesting his father Wm C. 1856-1900.
Was this William the only one that Gene had listed at Muncie?
