Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have joined findagrave to help connect the families I have researched and the many people who have not been put on findagrave. There are people I have researched who have been cremated and have not been memorialized and others whose graves have not been discovered to date.
I am linking one generation to the next and bring siblings and parents back together to make researching the families a little easier. Also with each person I put on findagrave I try to add a little history on them to help researchers in their quest for family members.

Adelia Spring Keferstein #149731358

You submitted an edit for Adelia Keferstein giving her place of birth as Pittsfield, Massachusetts.

There are several of us who have worked on her memorial and we do know that she lived in Pittsfield, Illinois but her place of birth was given as Ohio for most all of the censuses she was enumerated in. The only time she gave her native state as Massachusetts was in the 1870 Census in Blue Grass, Iowa.

Her children give their mother's birth state as Ohio in the censuses that they are enumerated in too.

Is there a bible or some type of record that you have? It would be wonderful to know as Adelia's memorial was quite a bit of work to put together for Find A Grave.

Thanks so much.

Linda, I bring sad news. Barbara's sister Roberta passed away last weekend. I was wondering if you would be interested in writing up something for her. Teri

RE: Fritz Family
Linda, I don't remember my Aunt having a house keeper, and please apologize to your sister for the abruptness. My Aunt fell down the stair and suffered complications due to the fall. I have heard about the Wilhelm's my whole life. My Aunt was forever comparing me to the girls. I could never quite live up to those standards. She always thought very highly of the girls.

Was your sister at her memorial two years ago?

By the way my great grandmother was an accomplished botanist. She was the one that planted and designed the yard around the house.

You did a fine write up on my aunt and Great grand parents and so forth down the line. Where you a friend of my Aunt Barbara?

Some of the information was quite personal.

Just for the record, My great grand mother may have been blood related to Elmer Phillips, but he was not her Father. That role was filled by Mr. Quinn. It is still a very sore subject to this day. Elmer walked out on Edith and the children.

Has far has the burial, that we will keep in the family. They are right were they wanted to be.

RE: Millie Hodge
My connection is on Millie's maternal line (Felmet) Once you connected her to our grandparents there were links to all of her aunts and uncles that I have made. The links that I have made in that line take her back as far as John McConnell buried at Centre Presbyterian near Charlotte and was born in Ireland in early 1700's. When I worked on my father's links, the only unphotographed grave of a sibling was Millie's mom. Milllie gave me directions within the cemetery and I went to West Asheville and photographed it. I am getting old now when I think of linking my first cousin's graves. But, I do need to start checking on those - 5 have now passed.

Hi Linda, I saw that you put in an edit for Mr. Miles, but it comes up as "no change no change". I'm just curious, what edit did you put in? Some of the ins and outs of Find A Grave simply baffle me! Thanks.
Added by Debbie B on Apr 06, 2016 6:57 AM
Please make sure you review tho memorials after I process the edits you send me. In many cases I was able to find obituaries or death certificates to fill in other information such as full death dates and survivors.

Isabelle Etnyre
Linda, Thank you very much for what you are doing. I know some of these can be very challenging. I do not know the Etnyre family so if you are related and would like to manage the memorials, I will transfer them to you. If this is only part of a challenge you are taking on to benefit others, I provide the following added information. There are only three Etnyre graves in the four Walnut Hill Cemeteries and I estimate those four make up nearly half of the burials in town, so Etnyre is a very rare name here. Harriet Etnyre is buried beside Isabelle and Samuel. Also, noting Isabelle's maiden name, I see there are eight Patterson graves beside the Etnyre family. Today or tomorrow, I will try to add memorials for any of those Pattersons not yet listed. Paul
