Bio Photo My contributions are in honor of those, who walked before us, no disrespect is intended whatsoever by my submissions to this website.

“There are three deaths. The first is when the body ceases to function. The second is when the body is consigned to the grave. The third is that moment, sometime in the future, when your name is spoken for the last time.”

I NEED YOUR HELP: Check out the virtual cemetery on the right. Maybe you can help finding these folks' final resting places.

Born in Germany in the 60's and growing up in Berlin and Munich, I now live in Central New York. I started my own genealogy in the 70's, then did my High School and College thing in the 80's, and came to the US in the 90's. Now I am taking pictures for fun and business. Some of the photos I post are digitally enhanced, so the lettering on older grave markers is easier to read. The information on FINDAGRAVE is provided by thousands of volunteers. Please let's not forget we are all volunteers. I take exception with those volunteers who say their photos are copyrighted. Why take photos if you're not going to share them with everyone? My photos are free to anyone who wants to copy them for non-profit purposes, no need to ask. A credit to FINDAGRAVE would be nice. After all, they are just photos of grave markers, not the Mona Lisa!

If you find errors on any of my submitted items, please be so kind and let me know so I can correct those. It's important for all of us hobby-family-researchers and historians to remain accurate in the data we publish. Always glad to transfer memorials following the FaG's guidelines. Just send me a SAC: Click on the memorial's EDIT tab, then on "Suggest any other correction or addition", that way I get your number and that of the memorial.

When researching European names, pay specific attention to the spelling, especially when uncommon letters are involved. In German there are those "Umlaute": Ä, Ö, Ü, ä, ö, ü.
Do not assume that Schäfer and Schaefer are the same. And Boeck is not the same as Böck.

Search for European Nobility with and without prefix, e.g. Friedrich von Bayern or Friedrich Bayern. Frederick of Bavaria or Frederick Bavaria. For Dutch names with the "van" search with and without space: "VanAusten" and "Van Austen".

I welcome every message left for me, but will delete them after I read and acted upon them. I like my member page "clutter-free", I am German after all. Giggle.

Thank You,
October 2017

Should I become part of my own entries and therefore won't be able to manage "my" memorials anymore, I would like them to be transferred over to contributor af (#47059011).

Hi Frank,

I have found a couple more for you. I did include a couple of burial unknowns because they were dupes of your listings. Your list is getting smaller and smaller. Cheers.

P.S. I think also found Dr. Herbert James Mason 1929-2007 but I haven't been able to verify this.

RE: edit request
I am researching the Dollar family. One of my distant cousins (Reese) married into the Dollar family and Sammie is included in my family line.

I did not personally know Sammie, did a lot of research. Carolyn's father was Carl Hinton. Carolyn did marry a Mayeur. Sammie was Carolyn's mother according to the 1940 census and SS Applications and Index records. Sammie's name was Nora V. Mortimer. Hope this helps.

RE: Edit
Hello Frank, My connection to these people is through my wife. Her great grandmother is Mary Bussey Abbey (aka Mrs. Frank Abbey) from the obit. Mary's twin sister is Martha Bussey Case. As per census records on, Martha and Gilbert Case are the parents of Grover Case,Mable Case and Leora Case. The US GenWeb site for New York State, Onondaga County has cemetery records for Pine Ridge Cemetery in Navarino, NY. These records show Gilbert Case 1859-1940 and Martha Bussey Case 1861-1945 as husband and wife. They also show Grover Case 1886-1971 as a son of Gilbert and Martha Case. They also show an additional child named Maude Alberta Case 1885-1899. The records also show Leora Case 1895-1974 but contain no notation of relation to anyone. However, Leora's obit on Find a Grave mentions her sister Mable Gwilt. Mable is buried in the South Onondaga Cemetery. I have no idea why Martha Bussey Case' obit failed to mention her. The obit only refers to a son but gives no name. It then names her sibling Mrs. Frank Abbey (Mary, my wife's great grandmother) Mrs. John Comstock (Hattie) and John Bussey. The obit connection to Mable and the census records were enough for me to draw the connection. Unfortunately, my mother in law is no longer alive for me to confirm this data with her.
