Bio and Links
Bio Photo A longtime interest in genealogy and cemeteries paired with a fascination (alright, obsession) with local history brought me to Find A Grave. Wandering around cemeteries, researching and connecting the dots are the best aspects of genealogy for me. I'm also drawn to the design and typography of headstones--faux bois and Art Nouveau styles are my favorites. And sometimes a stone with the light hitting it just right demands to have its picture taken.

All information I've posted is in the public domain or has been submitted by another member (and some sources have wrong data), but if you'd like to have it removed or changed--or if I've made a wrong intuitive leap, please let me know. Likewise, feel free to contact me to have a relative transferred. If you reuse one of my photos, I would love to hear from you, but in any case, please attribute it. Unhelpful messages from people without a F-A-G account will not be responded to.

RE: Edward Charlton 100619663
Thank you so much! I am surprising my dad with his family history as he has no idea about any of his family (sad).

Hi there! Sorry I'm behind in emails... but you are correct on the number on his stone. I've corrected it on his memorial page. Thanks for noticing it and letting me know! :)

Could you please transfer Edward Charlton to me? He is my 2x great grandfather on my father's side. My number is 48540609.

I would be most appreciative.

Thank you!

Thanks, Judy

RE: Marshall Sherman Jr and Sr
Debbie, sorry I did not see this right away. I am not related to the Sherman families in question. However they figure prominently in my studies of the Dairy District around Elgin, Illinois in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The youngest Marshall and Hattie did not have any children. As the saying goes "It is the end of the line."

Regardless I will not let them be forgotten because a hundred years ago they were friends of the family.

This does not answer your question. Probably, since they are distantly related to you, they should stay with your documentation.

If you see it differently please feel free to do as you think.

Sorry for the long note, I get carried away. Ted

Marguerite was not listed on the burial index and I looked for her name when I took Timothy's photo but he was the only Cummins. Judy
