Hi Ray,
You always use the date in the record closest to the event you are looking for. Therefore, October 25, 1875 comes from the birth record, so we use that!

Birthdate is from baptism record. Death date is probably from Nockamixon church records.

John Macdonald
Hello, You have a John Macdonald married to a Catherine Bridget Shea. You have his parents as Donald and Gabriella MacDonald. Would you be able to tell me if the names came from the marriage records or from another record. I have looked but with no success.

Thank You
E. Young

RE: Mary Margaret Lightcap
Hi Ray, Elizabeth Lightcap Gruver (as she seems to have preferred to spell it) had two brothers: Jacob and John Solomon, and four sisters: Charlotte, Catherine, Anna Maria, and Mary Ann. That is all I've been able to find. I have also seen the name Lightcap spelled "Lightkep."

What type of baptism records have you found? That probably has more information than I have.

RE: Shick
Hi Ray, Jacob Sassaman Sr. was my great great great great great great grandfather. That makes us, I believe, 5th cousins, twice removed?  I believe thats right. Nice to "meet" you, Cousin.

RE: Shick
Hi Raymond, It is my pleasure to sponsor these memorials. Yes, Sylvester Shick and Mary Ellen Shick were my great-great grandparents. Thank you for taking pictures of their graves! I visited the cemetery arounx 1996 to try to find their stones but was unsuccessful. So I thank you for sharing! Are you a relative also?

No problem, I'm doing research for a friend, so haven't been working on my own lately.

RE: Maude Hill
Hi Raymond,

Sorry, I'm located in Charleston, Coles Co, IL, several miles distant from Pana.
Have you posted a photo request on Maude's memorial?
Hopefully, a photo volunteer located in or close to Pana can search for her marker.

Mound cemetery Pana, IL
Did you ever find the cemetery records for Mound cemetery in Pana, IL.

My husband's great grandfather is buried there and we are thinking his 2nd wife could be buried with or near him. Her name was Victoria Gudehus.

Thank you for at least reading this.

Hello! You photographed in this Cemetery #96474102, Wondering if you still know the location of this cemetery? there is a couple of headstones 111741913 I believe are actually in Pownal United Baptist Cemetery and want to make a trip to this one to verify. 😁

RE: Mulherrin
You are very welcome. I've been looking for them for some time and am happy to have found them for you.

Did they have a daughter? I'll upload more photos in the coming days... I think there was another Mulherrin...

Julia Wolfinger at Forest Home Cemetery
Hi! I need the burial Section and Lot Numbers in order to take a photograph for you. This cemetery's staff does not help photo volunteers, and the burial location is not available anywhere else.

Phone: 708-366-1900

Last year I fulfilled over 450 photo requests at this cemetery after the burial location was provided.

Thank you!


P.S. I tried to look up his burial location at the local library, but I could not find his name in the list of burials for this cemetery.
