Find A Grave ID


I've long been fascinated by how my ancestor's lived, who they were, what they were like, longing to feel as connected as possible to them. It seems many died untimely deaths. I loved sitting around the table listening to my family tell stories from their past and about our loved ones. I also want to know all about family I never knew.

On my mother's side, I am the great Granddaughter of Herman William Brandt and Elizabeth Lizzie Sleeter-Brandt, whose daughter, Mary Katherine Brandt-Anderson was my Grandmother. My Mother was Joan Elizabeth Anderson-Keith, all from Des Moines County, Iowa.

My father was George S. Keith. I am the granddaughter of Earnest Floyd Keith and Lulu R. Sibert Keith. My great grandparents were George and Belle May Francis Keith and my great great grandfather was George Keith.

I hope to have help finding the graves of my beloved family members I used to visit as a child but haven't been able to for many, many years since moving to Florida in 1993, and the grave sites of beloved family members I never knew. There are a lot of missing pieces and it would mean a lot to fill in some blanks and learn all I can about family and ancestors.

The paternal surnames are Keith/ Sibert (or Siebert)/ Francis/Klinger or Cling or Kling/Richmond/Yahne.

The maternal surnames are Brandt/Anderson/Sleeter/Erb/Wunnenberg/Radameier/Ramueller/Breuer

I would like to help others find the graves of their loved ones as well because I know just how much it means.
