Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family tree since about 2011. Families researched include: Busch, Keeton, Lacey, Schmidt, Layer, Probandt, Williams. Plus the many branches to include but not limited to: Hilgers, Gueldner, Ullrich.

I am not a member of Find A Grave to see how many memorials I can add. I started working on my immediate family and while walking cemeteries looking for their graves, I took some photos of headstones I thought were interesting. That evolved into taking photos of some that were obviously deteriorating to the point they would be unreadable within the next couple of years. I hate to think that some families may never be able to find a relatives final resting place because of tht.
If you have information for corrections to any of the memorials I manage please send to me for review. I will make every effort to update the information within 24-48 hours of receipt as long as it is valid and verified.
If you are interested in having a memorial transferred to you please send me a request using the edit tab and include the reason you are making the request.

If I have posted photos that you wish to use for personal use, you may do so.

I sincerely appreciate all the work the many contributers of have made. It has made some of my research a bit easier.

Thank you for the transfer and the work you did.
I appreciate seeing the photo of the gravestone.
I didn't know it existed. Do you know if her husband's gravestone was there, I could not find it or maybe it was moved. I contacted the cemetery but they couldn't help me. I never saw her gravestone either when I went searching, maybe I was in the wrong place.
Thank you again.

My name is Brian Rick. I was wondeirng if you would be willing to tranfer Nellie G. Rick #121737459
She is my great grandmother.
I had went to where she should be buried but her grave was gone. I had seen where you had the photo and it was damaged so I think the cemetery removed it. There should have been her husband and son there also but I found nothing. The cemetery said they should be there but they didn't know if they had been moved. Any info you have would be appreciated.
Thank you,
Brian Rick

RE: Laura and Wm Mueller
I hope someone they do fit. They were all so close together, it seemed like they were family. It will be exciting to know if you found new members!

Laura A. Mueller
I took care of your request for Laura A. Mueller. William A. Mueller had a headstone on the same slab as Laura. There were also an Ethel Alma Dausin Nee Mueller; Charles H. Mueller; and Herman C. Mueller buried in the same area so I grabbed pictures of those headstones as well. I didn't know if they were related to Laura.

I understand why you entered it the way you did now. Maybe in the future someone will learn her actual first, maiden & married names and then it can be edited from there and the inscription on the tombstone can be entered in the proper place. Thanks for clearing that up for me! (Turns out... it wasn't even the right lady I was looking for!)
