Bio and Links
I was born, raised, and still live in the Chicago area. However, my roots are in the Illinois counties of Marion and Jefferson from which my parents came.

As a young child while visiting grandparents in Marion county we would visit the grave sites of relatives. I believe this is how my passion for family history, genealogy and cemeteries began.

I have been actively researching my roots since the 1970s. The computer, Find A Grave, and Ancestry.Com, along with other sites, have greatly changed the research process. Most of my work has been in Marion and Jefferson Counties, Illinois. The surnames I am particularly interested in are: Easley, Gordon, Hall, Higganbotham, Hill, Keele, Myers, Simmons, Stanford, Spangler & Stonecipher.

If any errors are found or additions needed in any of my entries please contact me using the edit button. I will happily make any changes required and appreciate the suggestions as I want the information to be as accurate as possible.

I am always willing to share information, answer questions or help others in their search for information and family. You may contact me using my email address if your info or questions does not relate to a specific memorial.

If I have accidently duplicated another memorial, please let me know and I will delete mine if entered after the other memorial.

I will always transfer memorials within the Find A Grave guidelines and will transfer outside of the guidelines in some cases.

Sheila and Charles Gardner
I was wondering if you were related to the above memorials that you posted?
Just saw that you posted them and wondered if you knew where Charles Jr. died.
Thanks. I am rewriting a book on the Gardner family that I wrote in 1996 and am just trying to fill in the spaces.

Leo Louis Boutin and Donald William Boutin photographs!
Dear MLSchuett: I can't thank you enough for taking the photographs of Leo and Donald Boutin's grave markers! Their family had an adoption situation and the adoptee is in his70's (I think) and he lives in California. He will be thrilled with your absolutely beautiful photographs of his people! Kind regards, Bridey Light
