Do you allow use of your Photo's?

Thank you, Cheryl. I just wish I could read her stone. We don't have the date of death.

I went ahead and changed the date to 1960. It looks like it could be either but I feel comfortable changing it - thanks for the info.

Alice Blanton Curtis
Cheryl, Have you come across the name Alice Blanton Curtis? She married Lafaytte Curtis, had at least 2 children. I can't find any more info. What names are found, the years don't correspond with her birth and the last known info about her is another child being born in 1870. The trail stops with the 1870 birth. Thanks so much!

Hello Cheryl, I didn't know Elmer but I was with his daughter for three years until she lost her battle with cancer. After Joyce Lynn's divorce from William Davis in 2001 we were to be married until she found out she had cancer. She said she would not marry me and leave me with all her medical bill's but I could not have loved her more. She died january 21st 2002,in Aztec, NM. She left behind three children, Sarah, Shelly and William(Billy)Davis. Her first grand child Conner Davis born December 2001 to Sarah Davis. Anyway don't lnow if this will help you, but I still have Joyce's birth certificate and a copy of her death certificate. Thank you Lloyd Lacy 401 Feil Dr.Aztec, NM87410

Thanks for asking about William, Find A Grave Memorial# 76945716. I double checked his obituary and he was indeed the son of William Tracy. Any other questions, let me know.

RE: Curtis family photos
You are very welcome!!! I didn't put the photo on their son's memorial yet. I wasn't sure if Wickliffe was W. Ray that is what is on the stone and I think the dates were different. I will put it on. Guess who else is there not far from their stone. Eugene Holmes Curtis 1846-no year of death on stone & Frances Jane Curtis 1849-1930. Carla :)

RE: Ralph Francis Lemon
There is a possibility that I am wrong about the headstone. I found a detailed map of the cemetery online last night (wish I had found it before my trip) and I think I was counting from the wrong end of the block. I go out that way every couple of months or so and will check again the next time I go. I apologize for my confusion.

Shannon Walsh
Sarah Graham Walsh
{Obituary, presumably from Rantoul Press}
of Eighty-Nine Years, Seven Months and Eighteen Days--Touching Manifestations of a Christian's Trust in God.

Mrs. Sarah Walsh died at the home of her son, Edward Walsh, living about a mile west of town, at 3 o'clock p.m. Friday, Jan. 10, 1902, aged 89 years, 7 months, and 18 days. She passed to her home above as sweetly as a babe falls asleep in its mother's arms.

Sarah Graham was born in Westmeath county, Ireland, May 21, 1812. She was converted when 11 years of age. In 1840 she was married to John Walsh. Mr. Walsh died Jan. 25, 1879. Six children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Walsh: William, John, Lizzie, Richard, Robert, and Edward. William died Sept. 21, 1875; Richard died Nov. 11, 1882. All the others are living. She came with her family to America in 1868. Her faith in God's care was manifested while crossing the ocean. The sea was very rough and some of the passengers were much frightened, but she told those around her that "everything would be all right." She lived in Menard county with her family until 1871, when she moved to Douglas County. While in Menard county she joined the Cumberland Presbyterian church. She never wearied of talking about religion. She moved to Champaign county in 1876, where she resided the remainder of her life. In 1877 she united with the Methodist church at a meeting held in the Kentucky settlement. Her illness began Sunday Jan. 5, and she said from the first she would not recover. Monday night she said she saw a beautiful place and spoke of it several times. She said: "Oh, how I wish you all could see it! I know you would be better satisfied." While able to speak she asked all who came in to meet her in Heaven. She tried to sing hymns all through her illness and one night asked the family to sing to her, "Am I a Soldier of the Cross?" Her trust in the Savior was perfect.

The funeral services were held at the M.E. church at 2 o'clock p.m. Sunday, Rev. E.K. Towle officiating. Interment was in Maplewood cemetery.

Thanks so much, Cheryl, for the transfer. I am at my mom's in WI. We just got back from a trip to IL, a several-day genealogical tear through family cemeteries in Jacksonville and Winchester. I am trying to get all the info added and straightened out. For every rock you turn over,...... I so appreciate your generosity and help. Mary

Martha (DeGarmo) Johnson transfer
Another "speedy" transfer :) Again, a special thanks for initially creating the memorials for both Martha & Clarinda, (mother and daughter). You epitimize the essence of Find A Grave--"sharing" and helping others find a link to their families.
With much respect for your work.
Blessings, :)

Elmer Zarnke
Thanks for that info Cheryl - had him, but I too don't yet know Tillie's husband's name/Elmer's Father's name, don't find any records with any info leading to it either. I have that Unknown Zarnke d. sometime before Tillie's mg to John Steffey as the marriage info shows he'd deceased.
I didn't find any info listing Elmer buried anywhere yet either - and know he too was md - assuming he'd be buried in Cleveland somewhere.

thanks so much for this info - I added it to Tillie's info.

RE: Charles S VanMeter photo
Thanks Cheryl😬 We went back because we didn't do 2 sections. There were 2 others in there and didn't want to step on any toes but they never posted anything so maybe were just looking for family. We really enjoy it and are so happy to help. Take care, Connie and Wayne

Henry Clifford Hummel
Hi Cheryl,

I believe this could be my birth father's (Henry Clifford Hummel) grave. According to my birth certificate, he was born in 1914 in Illinois and this is my father's full name. He had 2 other children at the time of my birth (and another daughter, my full sister, born on March 6, 1958). He and my birth mother never married each other. She had two children from her marriage and he had two from his marriage at the time I was born.

I have found my birth mother's family, but not my birth father's family. All that my birth mother's family knows about my father is that this is his name and that I have a full sister out there somewhere.

This is giving me some hope in finding them. If you have ANY suggestions as to where I can go next in my search, I would appreciate it.
