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.

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.

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

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

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

RE: Frieda McEwan
No I don't have documentation, so this should probably not be entered. Had a fire a few years back and most of my doc's were lost. I'm working off scraps and memory at the moment. Frank Edward McEwan #110378331 was married 1st to Clara Kuehl born 1868 died 1915. His second wife was Rose Loeckner. Clara had a sister Frieda Kuehl. Sorry to have posted that edit, please scrape it. You're doing a wonderful job.

re: Helen E Fish Smith #81278639
Dear BobH
You very kindly furnished the photo for this record. Could you find out which Plot number is associated with Helen E. Fish Smith.
Her husband was Alfred H. Smith - as we can read from the Head stone...
I noticed that you have an Alfred H. Smith in your collection..could they be 'side by side' or in the same general plot?

Alfred was born in Elgin, Kane, Illinois.

So I'm just curious. Is the fact of an Alfred H. Smith in the cemetery just a co-incidence? Or are they next to each other?

RE: Roy L. Sharp
Bob, thanks for getting Mr. Sharp straightened out, linked and submitting edits. These people who are at the very edges of the family tree, I have trouble keeping their info in my head. By the time the edits or photos come through, I'm like, who were they, again? Not your edits, because you do them so fast, but the ones that take the full 21 days! I much appreciate all your help.

Bob, thanks so much for your work creating the memorials for Nathaniel and Louisa Steffen, my great great grandparents. I know my grandmother, Lydia Conrad, would be so happy to know that you took the time and have now passed along the care and management to me. So greatly appreciated by all of our family.

Thank you so much Bob for getting the photo of Joseph Weil's headstone. I will unlikely be able to make it to this area of the country, so it is greatly appreciated by the family.

Thank you
Appreciate you're going to Lakewood to help me out. It is a long way from St. Paul. The pictures pointed out that the cemetery needs to do some maintenance on the gravestoness. Two of them were pretty obliterated by grass. I called Lakewood, and they are going to raise the stones and clean around them. Thanks. Without your assistance, I would have never known.

RE: Campbell Family in Illinois
Hi Bob!
Thank you SO VERY MUCH for clearing that up for me about David #1 and David #2! Do you know what the younger David #1 died from at 22 months of age?

I'm so glad you explained David #2 because I noticed on the 1880 census that David #2 was age 16 but had a marking under the "Health" column that asks if the person was sick or had a disability. I couldn't quite make it out...but I think one of the words was "fever". So it really complicated things when you posted that the younger David died at 22 months..and showed his DOD on the gravesite pictures you posted on his Find A Grave, but "he" appeared in the 1870 Census. I couldn't figure out how the "David" could appear on the 1870 census as age 8 if he died in 1861?

The 1880 Census shows "--- Campbell" as living with Susan Campbell (after David, the father died) listed as a Brother In Law. I'm assuming it is the same "Hugh Campbell" that was listed on the 1870 Census. I am so happy that you cleared this up because I discovered I was related to the Campbells thru the Ancestry DNA test and I had so many questions on this family. Thank you SO MUCH for posting the pics and your work with Find A Grave! It really made a difference to ME!!! ---Twig

Campbell Family in Illinois
Thank you for posting the memorials of the Campbell family in the Bluff City, IL Cemetery! I have finally found my 2nd great grandparents (David & Susan Campbell) , and my 3rd great grandmother (Margaret Campbell) from your memorials. I am so very grateful!

If you are related to the Campbells, would you please contact me as I have some questions about David Jr. as the census reports from the 1880's show him to be alive and living with his mother, Susan and his brother James.

Thanks for all your work on this family! I was confused about Katy/Catherine and thought I deleted that request, thanks for making the correction, and for letting me know about the declines. This is a big help in my tree.

Hi Bob, I think we have added a duplicate entries for Alice Engel ,Find A Grave#133643247 (your entry) and Find A Grave#125827187 (my entry). Do you have a headstone picture for your entry to compare the two? Also, is there a Lawrence Engel buried near her? That would be her husband.
