It all started years ago, when my grandmother had her ancestry traced back to the poet, Percy Bysshe Shelley. I thought that was pretty cool. Then a handful of old family photos surfaced, and a few colorful stories of my ancestors told to me by my mother got me hooked. All of a sudden, I have a new hobby. I am very new at this, and the information to be found is staggering. It is like a treasure hunt! I also love to visit cemeteries, and on walks I find myself wandering through, looking at the graves. I find them very poignant. As a child, my mother would take my brother and me to the Sunset Memorial Cemetery in Danville, Illinois to see the swans. I learned to drive in the Spring Hill Cemetery (I guess I couldn't do anyone harm there!) As I embark on this new adventure, I am hoping to be able to contribute information that others can use as well. Any of the photos I have contributed may be used for genealogical purposes. I would love to know when I have been of assistance, so drop me a line if you find a grave you've been looking for.
Catherine Louise Boerner Hilgen Katherine Louise Boerner Hilgen #70666256 in Hilgen Cemetery seems to be complicated with Catherine Louise Boerner Hilgen #59994812 in Zur Ruhe Cemetery. Only one can be correct. Please look into this matter.
RE: Ray Stevens unmarked grave You are welcome. Glad I could help but I am always disappointed when I have to report unmarked graces. Before I started depicting unmarked burials, I would see duplicate photo requests because there is no way to indicate the burial is unmarked on the memorial itself. So far it has worked out well.
Rachel McCollom I just posted two photos of Rachel Idell McCollom of which one is with her husband John Rielly McCollum/McCollom. If you wish for more info, please email me. Thanks, Michael Guinn Louisville, Ky 40299 email@example.com
My husband and I were at Wheeler Cemetery today and searched for Joseph O'Dell for your photo request. However, we were not able to locate the grave. If you have a more specific location, we'll be glad to check again the next time we are in the Wheeler area.
Presently I'm working on a USCT Headstone Page & would like to include any photos you may have. As a fellow Find A Graver I'll make sure you're given FULL credit & a link back to Find A Grave. Here's the link to our Page:
