|Glen Bickhart||RE: Catherine App|
I understand the meaning of this site and memorials, which is a major factor I take the pictures for others. I also participate in cemetery clean up of neglected cemeteries and this past month I am helping others uncover veterans plaques and making sure they get American Flags for their graves.
|Glen Bickhart||RE: Catherine App|
There are many stones which cannot be read in that cemetery. Weather erosion and time have made some of them entirely smooth.
|Glen Bickhart||RE: Thank You|
My pleasure, the dates are different than what is posted on her memorial, I am sure it is the correct grave because it says she was married to john Frederick App.

Find A Grave Memorial# 31283343
Mary's maiden name was Waters. Her father was George Waters, mother Eliza Unknown. Her middle name was Lillie. I don't know where the K.came from.
Her 2nd marriage was to Charles Henry Keeler 3 Apr 1909. He died in 1910. Charles was a journalist and editor and was one of two founders of the Dixon Star newspaper in 1891. He had been married before. There is a long article about him on Lee Co., Illinois Trails website.
Mary married a 3rd time to Jacob Walter Brown 8 Oct. 1912. Sometimes he went by Walter J. Brown. I don't have a death date for him.
