Bio and Links
Bio Photo Always been interested in genealogy since my parents split when I was 2. Never knew much on my dads side because of it. Really got interested after the birth of my two kids though. It has helped me get back in contact with my dad family. The Jahn's came from somewhere in Prussia and ended up in Oquawka, Il. Later then moved to Keokuk County, Iowa, then Osceola County, Iowa and last Minnesota.

Any tombstone photo's I have added can be used without asking for permission.

RE: Hello
Hello Jeff,

Sorry for the long response time, but no I'm not connected to Martha Ray.

I don't know anything about her or I would help you out. I'll ask my grandmother if she does and if I can find out any leads I'll send them your way.

God Bless,

RE: Thanks
The story on the Gumm head stone is Abby always hit the stone while doing field work. He finally dug it up which as you can see was a big job. Pulled the stone to the farm yard and told Maxine that this will be my tombstone. When he was have in put in the cemetery some of the Church Fathers objected but Abby won out. It always has caused a What the heck! any way I have always liked it Thanks Bill Tellin

Good evening,

Just running across this website, since I love it so much, and just wondered if you by chance are any relation to the Neihart family?
