Bio and Links
Bio Photo Looking at family history in Johntson, Bladen and Robenson counties in North Carolina for the Munn's Ryals, and Burney's. My wife's family is from the Chicago area: the Schoditsch, Buenzow, Petznick Ulrich, and Knauf.

If you find any mistakes in my entries,
email me and I will correct it. I would like to thank all who have added links, bios or photos, your kindness is appreciated. If you find a memorial I have added and would like to have it removed from Findagrave, please ask, and I will remove it. I don't have any intention to offend or upset anyone, just love to help and Findagrave is such a wonderful resource for honoring ones who have passed and for helping ones to connect to their family history.
I'm not related to most of my enteries, the information I add to each memorial is all I have.

Photos taken by me for Find A Grave may be considered public domain and you are most welcome to use them.

Rich, I just posted a copy of your headstone photo to the page I have for my ancestor Lucy on (Richeson family tree). Gave credit to you. Thanks so much for the effort you've put in and for granting open use permission of your headstone photos.

Thank you for posting my Grandmother's headstone photo. I haven't been able to return to her grave site since her burial and this is the first time I have seen her headstone. This means a lot to me. Thank you!

Rich: I don't even know what a transfer is. I am just learning all the new information which has been added recently to Find A Grave and have now uploaded more information and photos of my immediate family. Sorry to be so dumb. You could contact me directly at msamywils at G mail dot com
