Not related to that person... that I am aware of.

To fill time I have been placing "peace signs" on "graves." Especially those with none or just a couple "memorials."

Phoebe (Shoemaker) Hills
You have Phoebe (Shoemaker) Hills listed as being in this cemetery but that is incorrect. Phoebe is buried at Bristow Cemetery in Bristow, IN. Date of birth: Feb 26, 1808 - Date of death: Jan 27, 1903. I have a copy of her death certificate and a picture of her headstone if you would like me to send it to you.

RE: Becker (Germany)

I am a great grandson of Gail Simon Becker.
I am not 100% but, looking at some information on other geneology sites, (German).

I found a Jacob Becker who was born 4 Feb 1779, Eich, Hessen, Germany.

He married Anna Maria Rohrbach on 14 May 1805 in Eich, Hessen, Germany

They had 5 children ( records from Becker family indicates 6 children.)

Johann Georg Becker B: 8 Nov 1805 (George)
Jacob Becker B: 5 Aug 1807
Maria Magdalena Becker B: 1 Aug 1809 (Magdoline)
Johann Adam Becker B: 24 Mar 1811 (Adam Sr.)
Anna Maria Becker B: 7 Feb 1813 (not mentioned)
John Becker not mentioned in German geneology.

** Notice Adam Becker Sr. Birth date is off by two days, do you possibly have records of Becker Family Bible? Maybe the birthdate was not clearly recorded?

So, there are some problems that need to be looked at closely, I will keep you posted, sorry for the delayed responce.

Just saw your email address
I just saw your email address, so I'll email you in just a second. I noticed that I didn't add much at all to my Vansickle line into the tree. Would you like my DNA results instead? I'll email those to you.

RE: Vansickle
Thank you for transferring John Vansickle's tribute to me, Jim. I am related to Judd, though it is VERY distantly. I'm very happy to exchange DNA info. with you though, especially if you have Vansickle blood.

Thanks again for the transfer. I will link John up to his parents in New Jersey and add the obituary that I have for him.

Ports/Portz in Milledgeville, IL
There is no Elkhorn cemetery, however there is a South Elkhorn cemetery and that is where you will find the Ports family.

Good luck with your search.

Joseph & Martha Williams
Hey Jim,

I had a photo request out for the markers of Joseph (80376301) & Martha (80379802) Williams at the Social Hill Cemetery, no luck. The report came back that they were unable to find the markers for either, even checked a near area at Lone Hill Cemetery and had the same results. What info do you have that reports them burried at Social Hill?

I'm also concerned that Joseph is not burried next to Martha, but rather his second wife, the widowed Mary L. Mabis.

Jeanne Biebel
Lyman and Julie Morse
For Julia, I jotted down that she was born in 1831 and died in 1913. Being close in age to Lysander, I thought she may have been the spouse of Lyman Morse, and Lyman is Lysander's brother. Similarity of the two names also made me thing Lysander and Lyman were brothers. I will ask Mary at Woodlawn to give me locations of Julia and Lyman. Will let you know what I find and I will take photos.

If you would like more information on Lysander, I can try finding his his obituary at the main library in the newspaper archives on microfilm, if you wish. I just need Lysander's month/day/year of birth and the month/day/year of death. If I am able to find his obituary, I can copy it, then scan it and send it to you or post it on his profile page on Find A Grave.

Thank You!!!!
Hi, I just recieved notice that you located the header for my Grandma. I had forgotten that she was also burried next to my Uncle Freddie, so thanks for the inclusion of his as well :)

Additional Family Members
The Woodlawn Cemetery manager found records of Lyman and Julia Morse. I am not sure if they are a married couple. I did not find their graves in Section H where Lysander and Hariette Morse are interred. If you want photos of any existing memorial marker for Lyman and Julia, just let me know. Always glad to help! Lysander and Hariette are interred in an area where all of the monuments are identical. I am curious to know the story behind that and will let you know if I find out.

Photo Correction
You have placed an incorrect marker photo on memorial (71208563) Ronald Ahrens. The photo belongs on memorial (70536190) Emil Ahrens memorial. Thank you for the correction.

Added by RWS on Sep 17, 2011 3:40 PM

RE: Oops-William Mueller
I don't see that name among my relatives, Wm is my Ggrandpa. That doesn't mean he isn't a cousin or something. But I suggest you make a memorial for Gene and post his picture there. Someone may be searching for him and will be happy to see it!
Thanks again for your efforts. - Barb
