Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for about six years. For the past 3 years I have been on, and the past 2 years I have been on Find A Grave. Although it's fun doing genealogy on the computer, I am pretty energetic and like finding hard evidence, too, which is why I would be happy to go snap a picture from the local cemetery. :)

My first ancestors in the United States arrived in 1844 (I know, not that early, but I can't help it..) from Hessen in Germany. My great-great grandmother, Mary Regina Bolender is the oldest ancestor I have born in the States (1845, New York). I have family from all over: Germany, England, Poland, and, depending on how far back you want to go, Scandinavia, France, Spain, Italy, Russia, and much more, but that all starts in like the 14th century. DNA results prove that I am 39% British, 35% Eastern European, and 24% Scandinavian (2% unknown).

Please feel free to leave me a message if you are related to or know anything of the following surnames:

Fletcher, Fleischfresser, Fischer, Sterns, Swiatlowski, Lena, Mertes, Eichstaedt, Schulz, Pfeffer, Milech, Bolender, Ashmann, Keller, Kosnik, Kushnak, Kiczewski, Sault, Salt, Gradl, Welches, Wilkes, Pattinson, Blenkinship, Butler, Maas, Luy, Sniegowski, Butzin(e), Schuett, Brietske, Groth, Kienast, Bappert, Lomb, Steimers

Kosniks, Kochinski, and Flis
Katraine (Cerkowski)Swiatkowski who died in June 1922 in Manistee Co. She was my maternal great grandfather's cousin.
The Kochinskis/Kocezinski lived in Manistee near First St. Beach area about 1890's.These include my maternal great grandmother and her sister Frances Fojut,died in Manistee Feb. 1949.
Father Kosnik's name comes up as he joined together in marriage my mother's aunt?
Nice pictures,glad you posted them.

Kosnik name
I don't know the reason why Kosnik stands out.
Was there a priest in their family?
Or it could be, my relatives knew them back in Milwaukee?

RE: Sault
I will be glad to transfer. Please go to his page, click on edit & request the transfer there. Otherwise I have find your member number, copy that, find the memorial page & then transfer. Much easier for requests to be done through the update & correction link on the edit button on the memorial page itself. Thanks.

Eichsteadt Memorials

All transferred. There is an infant as well of Ernest & Mathilda's buried in Forest Cemetery. I transferred that one as well. The cemetery registers indicates that the infant is buried in the same plot, so it it perhaps unmarked.

corrections and additions
Hello when making any corrections or additions could you please use the Edit tab on the memorial as it is a little easier to make corrections. Thanks a lot
