Bio Photo Hi,
I started out doing this for family and friends and have expanded it to others also. I love doing the research. If I have made any errors or you want anything added or changed please feel free to email me!

I am researching the Kappelman's (Kappelmann's), Holmes, Kersbergen's, Lasschuit's, Wichhart's, Rohde's, Gates, Mikesell's, McGauvran's.

Please use the edit tab and SAC to ask for a transfer or update.

Please use the edit tab on the memorial page for corrections, additions or transfers .

Find-A-Grave Policy on Transfers

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations, this would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not want to make the transfer. You may certainly request the transfer of memorials beyond the four generations, but the original contributor may choose not to transfer (the original contributor should make any corrections and add any addional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses). Bulk surname requests should not be made.

Please take a moment and visit my beautiful mother Katherine Kersbergen

Thank you for leaving her flowers.


Please take a moment and visit my handsome nephew Frazier Rohde

Thank you for leaving Frazier flowers.


***PLEASE NOTE: "Real life" is taking up a lot of my time lately, so please understand if it takes me days or even weeks to respond to you. Thank you! :)***

RE: My Mom, Inez Kersbergen
Cindy, I've been out of commission following several falls and their debilitating outcomes, beginning Christmas Day, with two others, more recently. I don't want to say more publicly and very much appreciate your efforts to make sense of what I suggested before re. "Schwartz" and also her "father" (John Drew). Would you be willing, please, to try to get in touch w/me again? A better option re. E-mail is my G-mail address is as follows:

Sorry I've been so hard to contact. Thanks and hugs, Sandy (Sandra Kersbergen Sankey)

Jacob Ward #21402827
Some thoughts about the parents of Martha "Mattie" Ward Reed. Michigan Marriage Records have Jacob Ward's marriage to Miss Minnick Nov. 2, 1865 in Handy Twp., Livingston Co., MI. Michigan Death Records of both David and Freaman Ward, brothers of Mattie, list parents as Jacob Ward and Elizabeth Minnick. Elizabeth Minnick was the daughter of DAVID Minnick and her eldest sister MARTHA was married to John KIME, and their son Samuel Kime's land bordered the land of Jacob Ward in Gratiot Co., MI. On Reed marriage information St. Louis is in Gratiot Co., MI. not Shiawassee and Kimer or Kimes name may have come from confusion of the relationship of the Kime relatives when license was applied for in Shiawassee Co., where Joseph Reed was a resident of the town of Corunna at the time.

Research on Susan Hensley Stewart
Hi, Cindy! I have a family cemetery in Boyd County, KY. There is a gravestone for a little 4 year old girl named America E. Stewart. I have traced her parents back to Albert Henry and Susan Stewart. America was born on Nov. 30, 1878 and died Feb. 25, 1883. I don't know anything else about her. A KY Census report from 1800 has her in the household with the same siblings you listed. Do you have anymore info? I have tried for 15 years to find her cause of death and where her family ended up. Thanks!

Hey there, I am not sure if I spoke to you before. about my father n law , but i was wondering where you got the pictures of him? if I sent them to you , why is your name on them, and if you had them how are you related to him. or the travis family. I am at a total loss on how you have all this information and personal pictures but maybe you are not related? Please get back to me.

RE: #11760309 Mae DeKender
Hi Cindy:
Thanks for your reply. Please reread the bio information on this memorial. You say at the top that she died in San Bernadino, but in the bio info you say that she died in Missouri.
