Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Mary Joanne (Bruns) Sherwood. I was born to Harold Joseph Bruns and Josephine Mary Wenning Bruns and lived in Yorkshire, Ohio as a child. I now live in Granville, Ohio and have been working on my family history for a number of years. The family names I have researched include Bruns, Wenning, Hilgefort, Holscher, Budde, Meyer, Rottinghaus, Spoltman, Barhorst, Quatman, Wente, Unterbrink. My very German family settled in the area that is currently where Mercer, Auglaize, Shelby, and Darke counties come together.

If you want help in any area of genealogy, I would be happy to respond to email messages.

Thanks so much for your help with this! I knew you would be the right person to ask. I see now with your help that I need to reevaluate some of my tree...

Charles Bruns 74792978

I am trying to link this Charles Bruns 74792978(who I think is the brother of one of your ancestors) up with his children but I am having trouble finding them and also identifying which children are his (you know how everyone seems to have been named Mary, Elizabeth, Caroline, Henry, John, Bernard, or Joseph back then?). Can you help me with the match up or at least the names/dates of his children?

RE: Anna Mary Hoelker Quatman
I just posted Anna's photo to the record and I posted her husband's earlier.

I'm not related, just adding photos to the cemetery.

RE: Information about Calvary Cemetery
Aw, thanks so much for the tip, but the Calvary Cemetery we struggle with is the one up in Cleveland! I appreciate your note though - best wishes for a wonderful Holiday season!

Thank You!
Thank you so much for the wonderful photos from St. John's Cemetery in Maria Stein. Do you mind if I post them on my husband's family history website (with attribution, of course)? Thanks, again. ~Emily Schroeder
