Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native of Northern Virginia, having lived in Fairfax County and Loudoun County my whole life. I became interested in researching my family history after my mom passed in 1995 and my dad in 2004, both from cancer.

If I have created a memorial for someone close to you, please let me know and I'd be happy to transfer them to you as long as they are no relation to me. Please don't hesitate to ask.

If I have added a photo to a memorial and you would like additional photos, neighboring stones, better quality or close up, just let me know and I will try to help. Feel free to use any photos of headstones that I have taken for your own use in family trees, etc.; no need to give me credit.

I try to add as much information to a memorial as I can find; not just what is inscribed on the headstone. I will use various genealogical sources to research family links, middle name, maiden name, nickname & full dates and places of birth and death. This information can prove to be invaluable to someone who is searching for a loved one.

Surnames on my dad's side: CLOBUS/KLOBUS and NOLL from Germany and Pennsylvania, CROUP/CROOP of Allegheny Co. and Butler Co., PA and in FL and on my mom's side: ENTZIAN and MAIER/MAYR of MD and WI and MAYERLEN/MAIERLEN. Other family surnames: MARBURGER, GLOCK, SISTEK, GRUNTZ....all of Allegheny Co. or Butler Co., PA.

RE: Katherine Croop
Thank you very much! Kate's 2nd husband was a Croop, but they didn't have any children, as far as I know, so I don't think I'll find any more Croops from their line (other than through her husband, Roger- which I still haven't located a definite burial record for yet). I am descended through her son from her first husband. Thanks for the good work & good luck in your search!

Sistek Family

Dear Diane,

Thank you for this memorial for my great grandparents. I have been trying to find info on their son, Charles James Sistek who died during WWI. I have not been able to locate his grave. He died in France in 1918. Do you have any info on him? Thank you, Mary Lynn Topel

Hello, I've removed the photo of the grave location. I'm glad you were able to get a pic of the marker! Take care.

RE: Dorothy Spindle

Thanks for the amendments to the obit on F-a-G.
And, thanks for the many other contributions you have made --- I see your name often in my research.

I would like you to transfer the memorial for Dorothy Anne Pearson Spindle (my mother) to me.
Do I need to do anything to facilitate this? I've had no experience in such a maneuver.

RE: William Charles Landefeld, Jr.
Hi Diane,
Yes, absolutely -- I have some great photos to share and I can at least tell you about this line.

August's grandchildren by his son William Charles (my grandfather) are -- Jeananne (my mom), William (who you transferred to me), Ruth, Robert and Lorraine. My mom is still with us (she's 87), we just lost Aunt Ruthie last month, Uncle Bobby is still with us and lives in California and Aunt Lorraine is here with us in PA.

I'm the oldest grandchild of William Charles. Uncle Billy had one son (Gary) and one daughter (Lyn Ann) who were adopted. His wife, Mary Lee, was unable to have children. My other Uncle, Bobby, has one biological son, Charles, who just had a little boy, Logan, last year. Logan, right now, is the last Landefeld in our bloodline that will carry on the name. If you look at pictures of Charlie, he looks exactly like August.

That's just a little of the history. I am going to try and lay out a little family tree from what I know and I will send it on to you.

Thank you so much for contacting me! Sharon
