Bio and Links
I was a "Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness" RAOGK volunteer for the Kankakee County, Illinois Area.
I will take cemetery photos in Kankakee County, some parts of northwest Ford County, northern Iroquois County and southern Will County as time permits.
Other than my own family, I will transfer any memorials I have created if some one else wants them.

Hi Joe:
Tonight I was looking for our family members George Charles Rainford and Mary Clifton in Deselm Cemetery. Their children are there, and George's sister is there. I did visit that cemetery once but I have no photos. Do you happen to know if they are unmarked?

Thanks, no rush,
Robin Rainford

I submitted an edit request for the following

Find A Grave Memorial# 59445032
Find A Grave Memorial# 59445069

They were Husband and Wife.

I verified this through Acenstry.Com,
specifically US Census.

Thank you for the transfer. Mary was a great cousin. Didn't know Bob as well.

RE: Lyons Family
So nice to hear from you Joe!
My great grandfather was George Lyons, sister to your great grandmother.
I have done a lot of work on the genealogy part of it...less on pictures - but I have a couple of pictures of the siblings children.
I have a little history of Jessie Monroe Lyons/Mary Jane Snyder Lyons (their parents) and I recently received a packet of yet more information from a lady named Lea Sharp in Morris.
I am working on this project more in the coming months and will share whatever I have with you, if you'd like. I am a teacher, so I am looking forward to time this summer.
I would love to see any pictures of Annie and her family.
If it is easier to reach me through e-mail, I am at
Hope to hear from you!

Mildred Purkhiser and her Sons
Thanks for adding the family links for Mildred and her sons. I sent more information thru the Quick edit for these memorial.
Can you add the picture of the marker to Donald's memorial? He is on the same marker with his mother, Mildred.
Thanks, Marlene
