RE: Lillian Warner Sherwood
Thanks, Bob...yes, I think Permelia is correct. She and Chas.H. are buried in Udina. I will send you the Find A Grave #'s so you can link. Thanks again for all you do!

Lillian Sherwood
Hi Bob, I am researching the Warner family, among other things on Find A Grave, and found your entry for Lillian Warner Sherwood. She was a sister to my husband's great grandfather, Lansing Warner. You have her parents listed as Chas. & Fonella. Do you know where you got that info? We have a different name for Chas. wife but our information is rather sketchy and could be inaccurate. Thanks for any help you can provide. Melanie

Cora Jane Brown Hamlin
Hello Bob,

I am doing research on my home and the families who lived here in the late 1800's. I live in the house Cora Jane Brown Hamlin grew up in. It was in the Brown family until the 1940's. I'm guessing you may be related and hopefully you won't find this message intrusive. I'm just searching for history on my home and became interested in the people who lived here as well.

Thank you,

RE: Angeline-Marcus Mallery
Hi Bob...I could show you easier. I have it all worked out in a file.

It's the 1870 Elgin census when Marcus is with Martha and the 2 daughters of Marcus' are living with them. Jennie is the daughter of Marcus and Angeline...and Jesse is the daughter of Marcus and Martha. Jesse was born in 1862...I'm assuming that Marcus and Martha were married sometime before 1862. Therefore, I conclude that Marcus and Angeline were divorced between the 1860 census in Illinois and the birth of Marcus and Martha's daughter, Jesse in 1862.

Can you email me at yahoo?

Hi Bob,

Thank you for transferring their memorials to my care.

Would you, by any chance have a close-up of the writing on the monument above their gravestones? I can't read it. If not, would you mind taking a close-up the next time you are at the cemetery? If you are unable to do this, please let me know and I'll put in a regular photo request.

Thanks so much.

RE: Matthies family
Thanks, Bob! You are a true jewel on FindaGrave! I believe my great uncle was married to another daughter, Frieda, as per their marriage registration which lists her parents as Hy and Anna Bierman Matthies. Sadly, both my great uncle, William Petersen, and Frieda are buried in unmarked graves in Burlington Union Cemetery. I am trying to get records to validate his service in WWI so I can get him a military headstone but I have so little info I am finding it very difficult. Thanks again!

Samuel Anderson Civil War Vet
I have added the Block and Lot numbers for the original Channing Cemetery burial for Samuel. The enlistment papers, 1860 census, tombstone and Elgin Gazette all indicated that Samuel was probably born in 1836. Since the sexton records were recopied at one time, it is possible that the age at death was not copied correctly. The Battle of Shiloh was fought at Pittsburg Landing, Hardin, TN and the sexton might not have been aware of that distinction so I have left the place of death as originally entered. Thank you so much for all your work at Bluff City Cemetery. It is appreciated.

Hi Bob

You contacted me offline, and I would like to do the same but I don't see a link.

I have personal info to share regarding this memorial.

Please advise.

Hosea Edson Perkins
Dear BobH , If you are so inclined, the above person is also a child of Hosea and Edith M. Perkins. His Find A Grave # is 115812000. This is verified in the History of Kane County. He is the most documented of the Perkins children. Thanks again. I do FAGs also. Kathryn
Do you have a picture of his stone.

Betsy M. Kellogg
Dear Bob H. I cannot thank you enough. The gravestone picture is the exact link I needed and the connection to her parents is vital. As they say, you are the BOMB. Her husband lies in Iowa and I haven't found him yet, but this also connects them as a couple. Thank you, Kathryn

Bertha Klemm Fletcher
Sorry this took so long! This edit somehow got lost in the hundreds of spam emails I get. I took care of it. Thank you for letting me know the additional info!

When you have a moment, could you update Bertha's memorial:
maiden name Klemm
and link her to her parents:
Ferdinand 98628153
Minnie 98628154

Thank you

Betsy M Perkins Kellogg
Grave # 115811811
Dear Bobh, This is difficult to explain.
I have found two burial sites for the same ancestor. One is located in Bluff City Cemetery Elgin, Cook County Illinois with the birth and death dates of 1802 to 1870. The parents listed are the same as the other entry for Betsy M Perkins Kellogg. In that entry # 98448495, she is Elizabeth M Perkins Kellogg, with the birth and death dates of 1802 to 1865. The location of this burial is listed as unknown and the death is recorded as located in Geneva, Kane County. I suspect that your information is correct as you have an actual burial site. I am not sure how this can be resolved unless you have an actual document recording your information. She is my (how ever many greats) grandmother and she was married to Marquis de Lafayette Kellogg. This is important to me as I need documentation on this family line for proof for a lineage society. Please inform. Thank you, Kathryn
