RE: Perthena Crawford

I have a photograph of a stone, but I'm not sure this is the Perthena you're looking for - the inscription says:


Wife of Alfred Burgess

Died April 25, 1872

Aged 42 years

This person is buried in the same row as several members of the Crawford family, and the death date is very close to what you have on the memorial...could this be the Perthena you're looking for? If it is, please let me know and I will add the photo to the memorial.

memorial of Annie Henderson
I belive there has been a mistake. Annie Henderson is the daughter-in-law of Stewart Henderson not his daughter.
Annie Crause Henderson
b.1860 Spring River,Penn.
m.Thomas S.Henderson 21 Sept. 1893
Woodhull, Ill.
d.1899 Woodhull, Henry Co., Ill.
Children: Hazel b.25 Dec.1894, Elizabeth & Ann (twins) b.11 Aug.1897
Annie was the 2nd wife of my ggrandfather Thomas Henderson. I received this information from Ann Henderson Johnson in the 1970's. Also found Annie Crause Henderson in Ill. marriages 1810-1934. I hope her memorial page can be changed.
I will apreciate your doing so.

David Benedikt. P. (Bentler-Benteler)
Bentler - Benteler
Dear Debra Sprengler,
my name is David Benedikt, i am from germany and i am an Ascendant of H.D. Bentler who was born, lived and died in Germany 1934-2014. The Heritage contained a large amount of very old Documents from 1832-2014. Birth Certificates, Certificates of death , Certificates of Baptism and so on.
My Researches allowed me to reconstruct a hughe Family History. I have evidence of a name change from Benteler to Bentler between 1830 and 1864.

Could you please update "Anna Maria Bredemeier Bentler" (most likely Anna Benteler that arrived in New Orleans in 1855 alltogether with Joseph Bentler, Heinrich Bentler, Wilhelm Bentler and all the other young Bentlers, most likely the root of the US-Branch of the Family)

Would be great to be able to read the writing on her Grave(the German sentences under the date of Birth and Death)

Also found out Joseph Bentler(1837-1912) īs Father was named Joahnes/Johann Jodocus "Jador" Benteler, born 1809 in "Paderborn" Germany and died in "Stade" Germany, Married in Wetzler, West Virgina, so you may like to Update this as well.

Thank you so much for your efforts!

George Ferman
Hi Debra! Thanks so much for adding burials from Clover Chapel in Henry County, Illinois. I was surprised to find George Ferman (memorial #91417075) listed with his family. The only information I've been able to find on him is his birth and death dates and, according to a 1939 letter he "died back east." I'd love to know your source for his burial location. Thanks so much! Jim

Jordan Nicolas Thach
Hello there,

Jordan Nicolas Thach is my son. He was a stillborn at 32 weeks gestation, at the University of IA Hospital on Sept 25, 1992. I was wondering if you would mind transferring this record to me?

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Myron Seeley
Myron was my great grandfather. He was married to Lillie Mae (who married Robert Lawther after Myron's death) Myron & Lillie had my father's Dad, Ray Emery. We only recently found out that the first name of Mr Seeley was Myron. My family unfortunately never talked about Myron Seeley. Do you have any idea how he ended up in Illinois from Michigan and what he might have possibly died from? My parents always wondered if Myron had committed suicide since it was never talked about. It would be wonderful to hear any information you might have about our great grandfather and how you are related to him. Thanks you so much. Nancy Lawther Carroll
