Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in Waverly, Iowa & moved with my family down to Leavenworth, Kansas in 1993. I am a May 2008 graduate of Kansas State University and was actively involved with the marching band. I'm a huge fan of Kansas State football and hold season tickets.

I am in the process of joining the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). My patriot ancestors are:

George Etzweiler
Jacob Matter
Nicholas Bahner
- was a Hessian soldier who deserted and stayed in Pennsylvania. As of yet, I have been unable to prove he took the Oath of Allegiance which I know he had to of.

One of my biggest interests is in Genealogy and I absolutely love History so its a perfect pairing. I'm fascinated with family histories.

Family names I'm interested in:
Bergman (in IA)
Brandt/Lampe (in IA)
Halweg/Friedrich (in IA)
Tjebkes (in IA)
Stelzer (in IA and MN)
Bohner (in IA and PA)
As for the photos I take for Find A Grave:
If you would like me to transfer any memorials to you I would be more than happy to oblige as I am not interested in stacking up numbers for memorials managed. I think those that have that mindset are very rude people. The only memorials I will not transfer are those for my own family unless very distantly related. Also, if you would like a copy of the original photos posted to memorials please let me know as I am more than happy to send them to you.

I will sometimes photograph other plot markers near the graves where I am fulfilling photo requests. If they have no memorial I create one for them and attempt to give them a story based on what I find on various genealogical websites. If at any point you come across a memorial I've created for your ancestor and I have added information you DO NOT want on their memorial, please do not hesitate to let me know and I will gladly remove it. The same applies if there is something that you DO want added to their memorial.If I have included an obituary on any memorial page and you would like a clipping from the actual newspaper please let me know and I will accommodate. If I have added something you wish to be removed PLEASE BE NICE ABOUT IT when letting me know as I am not trying to upset anyone. I don't wish to be scolded like a child.

I am currently working extensively in multiple sections in Mount Muncie Cemetery, therefore I am very knowledgable about the cemetery and have a good working relationship with the cemetery's manager. If you have any questions about a grave or about the cemetery in general please don't hesitate to contact me.

My current goal is to get memorials up for all the ummarked graves in Mount Muncie Cemetery.

gustav and mary stillmacher
Shanon, Thank you so much for locating the location for the grave for gustav and mary. It is always so sad when they are unmarked but loved your idea to put the star there. At least we know where they are. I also just requested their daughter Bertha died 1910 that is there. Do you recall if she was there or is she also unmarked. Have a great weekend and thanks again. Linda Maret

RE: Storm Family
Hi Shannon,
Thank You so much for photographing all of the Storm family graves and making Memorials. I really appreciate it. It has been a busy summer and I cannot believe it is already July.
Can you please email me the list of burials in that one area that is unmarked? I had to send my laptop in for service and the guy is super nice and cleaned it up so it would run more efficiently. The only problem is our system for organizing data is not the same and I cannot find some of my files.
Thanks so much!

RE: Lecompte Family
Shannon, Thank you so much for the photo of the gravesites for the Lecompte family. I like the star on their unmarked graves. Find a Grave volunteers are the best!
