Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Illinois, but my family on my dad's side live in PA and my mom's side live in WI and SD. I have been working on my family's history since I was in high school, so for over 20 years. Obviously distance hinders a lot of my research, but with the Internet, new ways of finding this information have opened up. Thanks to Find A Grave and the people that volunteer their time, I have found many more family members than ever before. Yes these are memorials, but they are also a record of someone's life and how they will be remembered. I am only interested in finding information on my family history and sharing that history with others that are interested. I have added family pictures and grave pictures as I am able. If I can help someone out while I am working on my tree...all the better. Please let me know if you find a mistake and I will change it. The purpose is to be as accurate as possible.

Please use any pictures of people, headstones, or obits that I have taken or was given generously by others. We are here to share our history.....

****Any memorial pages from Galena, IL are not my relatives, so please ask if you want a transfer. We go there on vacation and I like to explore the old cemeteries.****

Surnames include:
Husband's side: Piemonte, Pinio, Laphen, DiGiacomo, Cozzi,
Father's side: Paulus, Wickard, Dick, Shank, Cornman, Weary, Wetzel, Hoover, Shellenhammer, Vanasdall, Coover, Gutshall, Myers, Herman, Umberger, Lightener
Mother's side: Steger, Hass, Mayer, Guth, Moser, Meseke, Kehres, Philabenski, Busch...just to name a few.

RE: Bessie Wickard
I will recheck the Wickard stones to see if there is indication of another site near them. There appears to be only one very unreadable stone in the cemetery, too old for hers, I believe. Will not likely get it checked for a week or so, though as we are heading out for a week soon!

Caroline & Edward Zentgraf
Hi Jessica, I've included the info that you provided for Caroline. However, it doesn't look like her husband is buried with her. I photographed the entire cemetery and if he was with her, I would have included him. I did a rough search throughout the state of WI and his name did not come up. Sorry, Nadeen

Memorials deleted. Again so sorry. I used an online transcription to add memorials and planned on getting all of the cemetery photographed....section by section.

RE: David Wickard
I know there are mistakes in the book. So excited to go back to PA and do some research. I am trying to get Paul's tree all in order and taking notes of things I need to find while I'm back there.

RE: duplicate
Duplicates happen... Been there, done that! Sometimes the original isn't listed correctly or in wrong cemetery and once a correction is put through, it appears as a duplicate, so some are accidents and some just can't be helped! Thanks for being so responsive and for all your great work!

RE: Paulus/Shearer
Hi Jessica, I add the information, made corrections and transfered James David Paulus, Loretta Irene Shearer and Paul Nellson Paulus to you. I didn't add Mary Edna Shearer because I don't know if she is alive or not. I did find information that might be helpful to you by searching FamilySearch website. Hope this helps.

RE: Piemonte grave
Hi Jessica-I got out to Mt Carmel today and I agree that there is no Piemonte marker in block 26 of Section Y. I have the same issue in that section. Ma says her grandma's grave had a nice little angel but the monument fell over at one point and has since been overgrown by the grass. Of eight I was looking for in Section Y today I only found two. ..Mary
