Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started researching my own genealogy back in the days of typewriters and before children. I stopped all research when the children lived at home and I worked full time. When the kids left, I got the genealogy binders out and entered the digital age of genealogy -- what a time saving method to do research.

My lines are Jones, Goff, Tyler, Burns, Nicholas, Gardner, Steinhoff, Kochert and Unkel.

Then I got fascinated with some of the genealogies I inherited on my husband's lines so I work on those too. They include Spicer, Smith, Rice, Hoskin and Tandy.

The contrast is interesting. I have German immigrants and old New England families. My husband has families going back to Virginia and Kentucky so the Civil War is very interesting on his side.

I grew up attending a country church, Evangelical and Reformed, in Woodbury County, Iowa (northwest Iowa close to Nebraska). The cemetery next to the church had 4 entries and since I'm related to most of the people buried there, I entered the burials for that cemetery. I live in Ames, Iowa.

You sent an edit with his middle name as Emil - the marker shows S. as his middle initial.

What is your source?

Thanks for the info.

My data shows that Maria's 1st husband George W. Brown died February 7, 1869, in Union County, OH. Location of marker is unknown. There is a George W. Brown on Find-a-Grave buried in Mitchell Cemetery, Union County, OH, but that George apparently died in infancy.

Regarding the "combining" of the two memorials, I cannot do that since that would require access to the other memorial for which I have no authorization. Perhaps Find-a-Grave can do that for you.

RE: Yockey, Steinhoff, etc.
If you email me at I can send you what I have written up on the Yockey descendants which includes lots of those folks who left Monroe County and went to Iowa; while of course, still a work in progress it is over 450 pages. My direct line stayed in Monroe County, Ohio until my grandfather and his brothers left Woodsfield for Ohio State. After that they only visited their parents but raised their own families elsewhere.

Yockey Marker
Thank you for uploading the Yockey marker. I see we have Steinhoff connections perhaps. My second cousin 2x removed Rolly Casper Eichhorn married Alvina Juliane Steinhoff. My first cousin 3x removed Barbara Elizabeth Gambs married William Steinhoff. This all from my Yockey line.
