Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am currently in the twin cities MN, but do most of my cemetery searches in the Durand/Shirland IL area. Much of my family is in the Winnebago/Stephenson county IL area, as well as The Wayne County IL area.

I have been doing genealogy research, in some form or another, since I was about 10 years old.

If you happen to be related to any of those I have posted, please let me know, as so far I have not posted any non-family members

Since I do get behind and am sometimes disorganized, I want to give a big whole hearted thank you here to all those folks on this site who have helped me by taking pictures, doing transfers, maintenance, sending info etc. Its really does mean a lot.

Luther Keyes
I put Luther on find a grave from a cemetery listing I have of Lafayette Co, Wisconsin. I don't live in Darlington now or I would go to the cemetery to look for his grave. I would request a photo. I requested one at Union Grove and it was filled in a few weeks of my request. Best of luck in your search.

Thank you very much for the transfer of my Great Grandparents. It is appreciated. I live here in Northern Illinois (Winnebago County). If you ever need any assistance in finding a grave, photos, or information I would be more than happy to assist.

Have a great day!

I have connected her to her father and I have transferred this memorial to you as she is not a direct line in my family.

Marget Boon
I searched Laird for Marget Boon and was unable to find her. I took and posted pictures to Elick and Eli Boon's page, and there was already a picture for Jacob Boon. I took a photo of the three of them in a row and if you are interested in it I could send it to you. There is a grave in the row in front of theirs that has been broken and removed, and this could be hers if she was burried near them.

Lewis Norton
Are you the one that wrote to me a while back looking for the stone for Lewis Norton at Oak Grove Cemetery in Fergus Falls MN? Did you get out there to find it?

Harley Kinney
Hi again,
Harley Kinney was son of Delmont and Flora Swale he would be grandson of Barbara Huff Kinney. Found him in the census records.

Thanks again, cousin,

RE: Huff Family
Hi, thanks for contacting me. The photo of James and his second wife, Sarah Slater was posted to and the person who posted it, gave me her kind permission to post to Find A Grave.
James Huff and first wife Lydia Austin are my gr, gr, gr grandparents.
The Lydia Huff Hopkins that I posted the obit to, would be my gr gr grandmother.
I believe the Harley Kinney you mentioned might be a grandchild of Barbara Huff Kinney not a son, as I have the census records for her and her husband and they do not mention a child named Harley.
What line are you descending from?
