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.

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

Lucy Carlisle
Thank you so much for adding the information that I sent you for Lucy Carlisle. I have been searching for her grave site since my grandmother told me the story of a grandmother that she never met. I did find her name before she died, however, she and her husband tried one time to find the gravesite, when they were out in Kansas. This was before computers started the mass information. I hope one day to come that way and see the cemetery where she is buried. Again thank you again for your assistance in making finding her grave and adding to the history. Gwen Holcomb Bard
