Bio and Links
Bio Photo The Photocopy of the picture to the left is the family of Francis & Rosa (Schott) Berst. I am their Grt Grt Grandaughter & I would like to be in contact with someone who has this actual photo & would consider scanning it for me.

Please contact me with corrections that need to be made on my memorials. I'm happy to transfer them to family members. I can also e-mail the orig. size photos to you.

Have you seen the beautiful gravestones shaped like tree trunks? Stones shaped liked Tree Trunks or Stumps usually signify that the deceased was a member of The Woodmen of the World. They usually contain other symbols such as anchors, lillies, vines, etc. The company, Woodmen of the World, is still in existence under the name Modern Woodmen of America. I have made a virtual cemetery for them. If you are aware of any to add to my collection, please let me know. When I started collecting obituaries, I noticed some of my ancestors were members of Woodmen of the World or sometimes they were called Foresters. You will see several in this virtual cemetery who died on the same date in a mining explosion at Jumbo, Oklahoma.

I apologize to anyone that photographed a gravestone for me & I neglected to thank. I think I may have missed a few notifications. I truly appreciate your time & effort.

Interesting Tree Trunk
It has been a long time since I have shared a tree trunk photo with you. I was taking a look at this Winchester family today and found a neat stone I thought you might want to add to your virtual cemetery.

Happy hunting!

Everett Burton
Thanks. I thought the Everett Burton one was neat because of the WWI 'Doughboy' statue. I had never seen that one before. I wonder if it is one of a kind or if others have that statue too?

Another tree trunk for your collection.

I guess I should have asked you if you want any tree trunks, or just the 'Woodmen' designated ones?

More tree trunks
Some more tree trunks.

You might not consider this a tree trunk photo. It does have a 'log' on top of the 'die' (main part of monument).
