Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Brenda (Boyer) Kohr. My husband Pete and I are researching his side of the family (Kohr/Smith)&(Minnich/Buxton), as well as my own (Boyer/Grimes) & (Beil/Shott). We are not trying to see how many memorials we can amass so that we can have our numbers posted in the "Top Contributors" catagory. We want to make memorials to pay tribute to our families and friends and hopefully help others to find theirs.

We enjoy helping others by photographing grave markers. There are times that we may photograph markers that are near the ones we were asked to take photos of, or if we see one with our surnames. If there is no memorial for these extra photos that we take....I create one. If by chance I happen to create a memorial for a relative or a friend of yours don't hesitate to ask for a transfer. I don't feel the need to keep memorials that I have created. (unless they are family) I only created them so that someone may find a member of their family or a friend.

Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble stone

It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born

Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood and bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so

I wonder if you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you

Author Unknown


Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

1st husband was Luther Burger
Hi Pete, Luther Burger, the one you just deleted, was the first husband of Pleadees Spitler

You incorrectly had him listed as Luther Spitler. My edit sent to you to correct his last name to Burger is still pending as are the other edits for Spitler, Lerch and Burger families.

son of Luther Burger Please re-add his father Luther Burger back to the memorial.

Should I delete my edits, because you updated the memorials without using the edit button?

Let me know.

I found your photo of this man's grave. ( He is the husband of my 2nd great aunt. She is listed as buried in the same cemetery. Her maiden name was Susan (or Susanna) Warner 1855-1934.

If you are still active in doing this, could you check for her grave site? I would appreciate it.

Thank you!!
