Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Susan Kuaile and I have been researching my family history off and on for twenty years. I live in Southern California, hense 50 C@L G3N!3 (SO CAL GENIE) short for Genealogy. I may not know where their final resting places are but I believe they should be acknowledged and remembered as well because they did live a life.

If you have any corrections to add, please let me know. I want to try to get the memorials as accurate as possible. Any photos would also be great. If you would like any memorials transferred to you (that are not my direct ancestors), I will be happy to do it. If I accidentally make a memorial that has already been created, PLEASE let me know, I will delete my duplicate memorial as soon as possible.

Many of the photos I've added to memorials are from the Minster Post newspaper from Auglaize County, Ohio. It is a free site:
www.minsterhistoricalsociety.com

I also have my mom's high school year books of 1953-1954-1955, my Dad's year books of 1948 and 1949 and my uncle's from 1950-1951-1952. I also have grade school photos from my Mom's scrapbook from Holy Rosary Catholic School in St. Marys, Oh., ca. 1940s.

I love to add photos to memorials but if I add a photo to a memorial that you do not want posted, PLEASE let me know and I will remove the photo as soon as possible.

My research is mainly in Ohio...Auglaize, Mercer, Hardin, Paulding, Licking, and Ross counties, and various other neighboring counties.

****Please ask permission if you want to use any of the photos of my family. I would appreciate it. Thank you.****

My paternal grandparents were Ivan and Goldie (McGinnis) Kuaile.

My maternal grandparents were Gregory and Florentina (Borgerding) Kemper.

Surnames in my family:
Kuaile
Kemper
McGinnis

As we find the puzzle pieces, as every twig and root make our branch and every branch makes our tree.

"Dear Ancestor,
Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date have worn off
The weathered marble stone.

It reaches out to all who care
It's now to late to mourn
You did not know that I'd exist
You died...and I was born.

Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone
Our hearts contrast and beat a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
So many years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.

I wonder how you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come and visit you."

Susan,

Thank you for your work, it is detailed, accurate, and exquisite.

I am Joseph F. Borgerding's grandson. I see that you have posted photos of my grandfather and all his siblings against a wood background that look like crops of a group picture.

If this is the case, and you have that group photo, it would make me very happy if you could email me a copy. anmborg@hotmail.com.

Again, cousin, thank you for your work.

Michael J. Borgerding

Re: memorial 120508592 for August Friederich Busch:
I have found the original source for the obituary you've posted, transcribed the old German script, and translated it into Englixh. It's in the obituary source linked to his record in FamilySearch. You are welcome to use it and any other information you find there in your Findagrave memorial.

RE: William Goetz & Eva Schluetter
Thanks for following up on these two families. They are not my relatives, but now their burial locations can be found by someone searching. I have posted photos for both Eva Schluetter and William Goetz (d.1949). Thanks for all your research work! sjm

Wm. Goetz (d.1949) correction
I did find that I have a photo of William Goetz (d.1949) headstone. I have posted it to his Memorial page created by ForestC.

Goetz-Schluetter in Forest Cemetery
If you could create a Memorial page for Eva Schluetter/Schlueter in Forest Cemetery, Section C, Lot 121, I will add a photograph of her headstone. Her headstone inscription is "EVA SCHLUETER, 1834-1901". Eva is buried next to both William F. Goetz (1890-1918), William Goetz (d.1949, no headstone, but cemetery records indicate he was buried in the same grave #4 as the William who died in 1918); and Augusta F. Goetz (1862-1929). Thank you! Regards, sjm
