Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family off and on since the 1980s but now I am doing it almost daily.

Researching Hartman(n), Habermann, Gundersen, Gunderson, Oneal. O'Neal, Porter, Kimmey, Welch, McBryde, and all associated families on my side.

For my husband's side I am researching the Arndt, Kroening, Behling, Steffen, Pagel, and all related families.

I became interested in genealogy when my second husband passed away and I did not know anything about his extended family. Seems like after all these years I still haven't made much headway since they all were from Alabama and back then they were all born at home without any paper trail. I'll keep chugging along until I find what I'm looking for. :-)

If you have any information on the Wiley, Powell, or Martin families of Alabama, please let me know.

If any memorial, except those of my family, are of your family, please use the "EDIT" button to ask for a transfer. Just let me know your relationship.

Note: Please refrain from placing death certificates on any memorial I have on FAG.

John Grammer Brodnax, Jr. Entry
Just letting you know that Ive added the obituary that you so kindly provided to his Find A Grave entry.

It was very interesting. I think I must live fairly close to where the train wrecked. Iĺl have to look up more info about the wreck.

Thank you so much for sending his obituary.

Would you please delete this memorial from the Madisonville City Cemetery? He is buried in the Hopewell Cemetery and this is a duplicate. Thank you very much.

Hi Brenda,

This is my family. However you don't list her siblings Robert Dubois 08/15/1908-10/01/1908 and Violet Mildred Dubois Van Ness 07/02/1912-07/17/1992? Grandma Violet told me that her sister was killed in a car accident her father had with a train at an intersection.

You asked for Powell Lineage information. I am not sure where your Powell line is from? My husband's family is from Mississippi.

Thanks for the obit.

Thank You
Thanks for the obit for Walker. However, I have it, and she is my dad's cousin, and her daughter-in-law is my husband's first cousin. I wait some time after the newly deceased pass away, before putting anything on the memorial, just out of respect. I was at the cemetery 2 weeks ago, and cleaned the marker up, not knowing it would be this soon.

Thanks again.

Milton O'Neal & Elda LaPoint O'Neal
Hello Brenda,

I am researching my husband's LaPoint family. Edla was the daughter of Paul LaPoint & Adelia Sarver. My husband's grandfather (Icgular) was a half brother to Elda. He was a son of Paul LaPoint and Alice Breaux (Paul's second wife). I was wondering if you would have any pictures of Elda and her family. I have a few pictures of Paul and his children with his second wife. My email is and I am also a member of findagrave. Thank you
