Bio and Links
Hi!! My name is Alice. I have been doing genealogy since about 1981. It is something that my mom and I always did together. Always had a great time traveling to the different cemeteries and taking pictures of headstones and spending as many hours as they would let us at the county courthouses transcribing any record we could find that was relevant to who we were searching for that day.
I found this site a few years ago. Forgot about it. Found it again two years ago, I think. Through this site I was able to find my Great-great-great grandfather Isaac Kitzmiller, who I had been searching for almost as long as I have been doing genealogy!! What a very exciting day that was. That is why I became a contributing member of Find a Grave. Hopefully, because of me someone else will find a long lost family member.

Unmarked Mueckler Graves in Trinity Cemetery

Gustav Mueckler (Gust) was my great grandfather's brother. He and his wife, Bertha, lost two young children in November, 1899, in a measles epidemic. The children are Martha Mueckler B. 2/1896 D. 11/23/1899 and Gustav Mueckler B. 2/88 D. 11/24/1899. In a newspaper article, it was noted that a third child was gravely ill, but I believe the third child recovered. The death certs of both Martha and Gustav note burial in the "German" cemetery. Thank you so much!

RE: Schuelke
Alice, I did a little more digging on Ancestry and found Hulda's death certificate. Her name was listed Hulda Anna Schuelke with father Michael and husband was Frederich. It could be they had a baby who died named Ernestina and buried the mother there with the baby although I have no evidence of that. They did have a baby boy who died and I don't have a name for him. Are you a direct descendant of theirs?

RE: Schuelke
Hulda (Hildy) was born in Germany and I don't have her birth record so I don't know. Typically germans have 4 given names and Ernestina could be the first or 2nd given name. I don't think he married again. I got the birth date from the 1900 census. It could be 1853 though because the census is sometimes wrong. If you have plot information on she and Fred and the kids that would help to confirm it is indeed Hulda. Knowing this information is helpful in finding her birth record when I have time to search for it although I am more into the Schuelke side. I could not find any Ernestina's in a census search. Thanks for contacting me.

RE: Memorial #155591395 for Sally Swiontek.
Hi, Alice! Thank you so very much for sharing your information update on Aunt Sally's parents, Andrew & Helen Pieczynski. Sally was married to my father's uncle, Dick (Bernard) Swiontek. And, she was a treasure...a very special lady. Many Thanks, for all your work and efforts with the "Find a Grave" memorials.

Marie Roestel
Thanks for your help in trying to find the gravestone for Marie Roestel. Thanks for confirming that she was buried in Mount Carmel Cemetery for me even though she doesn't have a gravestone.

RE: Question
I'm still old-fashioned and still use Windows 7. I know nothing about Windows 10. My wife bought a new computer with it and it's giving her a rough time. Sorry I can't help.

I will try to get better photos of the markers after they dry. I had to dig them out.
