Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for several years and have taken several pictures of my family and relatives grave stones. I am a retired pastor and my wife and I do a lot of traveling. I have many hobbies but photography probably tops the list even though some pictures don't come out the way I want. When I take a picture I try to make it as readable as I can and try to post all that is on the stone. I'm not just trying to post to get a large number but to help others with genealogy as I have been helped.
I have found a lot of newspaper articles and the funeral brochures that my parents had of people that I didn't know but I have posted several. I would be glad to help in any way that I can. I will transfer your relatives or close friends if they are not my relatives.
You may use any pictures that I have posted for genealogy purposes only.

Howard A. Goss
Do you know where the cemetery is that Bro. Goss was buried? I saw your picture of his headstone and was wondering if you knew.

Bessie Zelma White
There is no mention of Rev. Homer E. (Eli) White's wife, Bessie Zelma Smith White. Is she buried with or near her husband in Graceland Cemetery, Decatur, Illinois? She is also not listed in that Cemetery. His Memorial No. is: 64838857. Thank you for your time & effort on my behalf. Sincerely & respectfully Carol Jean Frey at CJMFrey10@aol.com (near Dallas, Texas).

Alice Wright-Pranke
Dear Rev. Sims

Alice is my Grand Aunt, sister of my grandmother Laura Wright-Fowler. You mentioned obits you may have which would be interesting. Do you know if there are any Prankes or relatives of that family that could be contacted to see if there is a picture of her husband who I seem to remember was a Judge Pranke. He had been married before marrying my Grand Aunt. Thanks for any information you may have. Ann Schwendler

My great grandfather was William David Merrifield.
I am now looking for the resting place of my great grandfathers dad,
(John Alvin Merrifield). I can not find anything on him since 1910 in Danville, illinois. Any help locating John Alvin would be greatly appreciated. If you have any information that you can pass along please let me know. You can contact me , John Monroe , (E-Mail) jdm1956@aol.com.
Please put John Alvin Merrifield in the subject line.
Thank You,
