Bio and Links
Bio Photo ABOUT DEATH CERTIFICATES AND OTHER DOCUMENTS--- I ask politely that you PLEASE don't post any DC's or other documents to my memorials. I like to honor their life and history. My humble opinion is that their death is a personal/private matter for not only the deceased but also the family/descendents. I prefer to have the information included on their memorial page details and in their bio rather than documents that often only duplicates what is already there. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING AND HONORING MY REQUEST. I will do the same for you.

I do welcome any photos of the individual so we can see them when alive. About photos, if another contributor has posted gravestone photos to one of my memorials, please do not post any duplicates. thank you for that!

The Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you'd have them do unto you"
Please don't create duplicates when you know another memorial was created first. If there is an error in cemetery or info, be courteous and contact the original contributor. You'd want that gesture offered to you too.

We are ALL part of this magnificant GIANT historical jigsaw puzzle!

I always have and still do love puzzles. And I have been bitten by the genealogy research bug for years! Better than fiction!

I am NOT involved with findagrave for the numbers. I research every person for whom I create a memorial for accuracy and in an attempt to include as much information as possible.

Whenever possible, I also try to link family members. I feel that is most important and a way to have them all 'reunited.'

This is a marvelous venue to not only recognize, remember and HONOR those who have passed before us, but also to assist families in the future in finding their ancestors and hopefully even seeing a photo of their headstone.

My sincere thanks to all findagrave contributors and photographers for all you have done for me and the entire findagrave community! It takes a village!

For the MOST part, the cooperation and sharing on this site are tremendous and heart-warming.

A special thanks to contributor peace4me- she is a prolific and wonderful photo contributor and a super nice person to work with! She is incredible with photos in Wheeling West Virginia and beyond!

Remember: be kind to one another!

Do you transfer memorials? In July, 2014 I had originally created a memorial for John. He is my 3rd great-grandfather, and while going back through my memorials I had noticed that mine was evidently merged with yours. None-the-less, I had more to add to his memorial, so I'm asking this question, would you be willing to transfer his memorial to me. Thank you for your time and thank you for all you do and have done here on Find a Grave.

RE: Douglass
Thanks for the info - I deleted M/M Douglass - if you're not half crazy when you start with Find A Grave, you will be certified a short time later (ha).

RE: orchid
Thank you for the tips and encouragement. When my husband and I married, we had a tiered hazelnut cake with raspberry filling and white butter-cream frosting. But we didn't use a standard plastic cake topper. Instead, we bought two large, beautiful Phalaenopsis specimen blooms for the top. They made quite an impression!

RE: Back to Becker
I believe the DC is incorrect as far as the father goes. It should be Johann (John) but the Lauer name is correct.

RE: Dally in Southside
My pleasure. Dally family marker photo added to all Dally memorial pages. In addition, I created memorials with photos for the nearby markers of Harriet Dally Hardy, Elizabeth Noble, and Christopher Dally Jr (with link to his parents). Also added photo to existing memorials for Drusilla Dally Parse, Ella Crosby Dally, Henry Parse, and Sarah Rebecca Dally.

I just want to thank you for all the information that you provided for Cornelius Wieneke. Are you related to the Wieneke? Have a safe and wonderful weekend.

RE: Zilles/Cilles
Thanks for the info - I deleted Barbara & George "Cilles." As for all the different spellings of names which drive us all crazy, I am reminded of a line in the 1930s movie "Horsefeathers" delivered by Groucho Marx: "Anything further, Father? Anything farther, further?"

My husband is related to the Seabrights. I have a huge Seabright database and am currently building family trees for all of them in an attempt to sort them all out. I'm still working on the project. Right now, I don't know who Caroline Seabright Juergens belongs to, only that she's not the sister of Louis Frederick Seabright b. 1858 d. 1930 (son of Frederick Seabright and Sophia/Louisa Stroutman. Caroline Seabright Juergens did have a brother Louis, but he died in 1873. She also had a brother Charles W. Seabright named in Louis's will.

My husband is descended from this Caroline Seabright:

Henry Specht 1822 Brunswick, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany
d.08 May 1876 Wheeling, OH, WV
bur. Mt. Zion Cemetery


Caroline Siebrecht (Seabright, Sebreight)
( has brother or cousin Lewis Seabright, butcher)
b. ca 1823 Germany
d. 15/18 May 1858 Wheeling, OH, WV


August Specht
b. 10 Jul 1843 or 01 Aug 1843 Brunswick, Braunschweig, Lower Saxony, Germany
d. 18 Dec 1924 Martin’s Ferry, Belmont, OH
Civil War
m. 1868
Susan Fox

Elizabeth “Lizzie” Specht
b. 20 Apr 1852 Brunswick, Braunschweig, Lower Saxony, Germany
d. 29 May 1926 Grafton, Taylor, WV

m. 30 Jun 1870 Wheeling, Ohio, WV

Henry Rose
b. 01 Mar 1850 Braunschweig, Germany
d. 07 Aug 1921 Wheeling, Ohio, WV

Baby Girl Specht
b. 1858
d. 1858

All the Seabrights in Wheeling seem to be related. The majority of them are descended from August (Heinrich) Siebrecht (Seabright) b. ca 1810 and his wife Ernestina.

They had these children:
Henry L. Seabright b. 1829 m. Wilhelmina Pobe

August Seabright b. 1826 m. Caroline Klages (Cloggis)

Caroline Siebrecht 1833

Charles William (W.C.) Seabright m. Isabella O'Callahan

I have families laid out for all of these couples.

There's a second group of Seabrights who are related to this family, but I'm not yet sure how. I also have a number of families that I'm working to fit into the big picture.

They almost all have children named Henry, Charles/Carl, Frederick, Caroline and Louis, which makes it extremely difficult to sort them out without researching every one of them.

I hope this helps.
