RE: Maudie Mattingly Erps Peak
Sorry it has taken me so long to reply. I haven't done any genealogy research in several years. I have a copy of Maudie Peak Erps obituary and it looks like I found it in the Pekin Daily Times. I'm sure I got a copy from the microfilm that the Pekin Library had on file. I normally document what date I found the obituary but this must have been from very early in my research when I wasn't as good about documenting my sources. I can scan this obituary and e-mail it to you if you'd like.

Mrs. Maudie Mattingly Peak Erps
B: Feb. 9, 1920, Bloomfield, KY
D: Sept. 5, 1979, Pekin Memorial Hospital, Pekin, Tazewell Co., IL
Buried: Sept. 8, 1979, Lakeside Cemetery, Pekin, Tazewell Co., IL

1st marriage: Howard Peak, Jan. 30, 1939 at Lawrenceburg, KY. He preceded her in death Oct. 18, 1961

2nd marriage: Robert Erps, July 6, 1966 in Pekin, IL - he was still surviving at the time of her death.

At the time of her death she was also survived bu one son, Gilman Peak of Pekin and two daughters, Mrs. John (Bonnie) Henderson of San Jose and Mrs. Thomas (Rose) Buchanan of Pekin.

One son, a great-grandchild, a sister and two brothers preceded her in death.

I have Robert Erps obituary as well. He died July 28, 1988, Pekin Convalescent Center, Pekin, IL
Maudie's children were still living at the time of Robert's death.

Hope this helps!

It was my pleasure.It looks like it may have been broke off at the base and it was just leaning against another stone.

RE: Lindsey Family
The book I wrote follows my family line (James Lindsey, b. ca. 1758; James Alfred Lindsey, b. 1793; David Lindsey, b. 1823; David Alfred Lindsey, b. 1870; David Orville Lindsey, b. 1898; David Nicholas Lindsey, b. 1922). There's little mention of William T. Lindsey. However, if you're interested in what I've put together, email me directly at Thanks.

RE: Lindsey Family

Sorry for the delayed response. I had changed email addresses and failed to update my profile at FindAGrave, so I am just now seeing your message.

Yes, William T. (Thornton) is the great-grandson of James Alfred Lindsey, so we're distant cousins.

Hi Gina,

Did you do something to Joan Long Treacy Wahl's memorial that you gave to me to manage? It doesn't show in my list anymore and isn't on the list of people buried in Sacred Heart. Just wondering.

Thanks for adding all the section numbers on the memorials as we get the "missing" pictures entered. It always helps if we ever have to go back and do a retake or get more info. Plus, now that Calvary has installed new signs at the front and back of each section, we don't ever have to "guess" what section we are in.

Gina could you please change a couple things on this person.
His daughter informed me that he actually died in Dresden, Weakley, Tn
Her parents were married in Mar 15, 1956.
You have two Dave's and the second one should be Ted and Susie.

Thank you

RE: Rosemary Layer
Thank you so much for your help and your kind words. It was such a rare chance that I ran across Rosemary's memorial. I'm glad we were able to connect her to family. Also, thanks for contacting me so I knew to delete my temporary memorial.

You had requested a picture of Curtis and I've attached it to the memorial. However, I did not take the picture. The photo belongs to the Wharton County Historical Preservation Association. I found it on their website so I take no credit.

RE: Floral tribute in error
My mother and stepfather are not without tributes, they receive both actual tributes and in the lives of people they touched in their time on earth.
The objection I wish to express is the fact that you seemingly knew them, "not at all". And the tribute that is on my step father's site is not just a tribute but an endless production of all your messages, etc.
Please do whatever it takes to remove this connection to my family.
Thank you in advance for your prompt attention to this request.
