Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am interested in preserving information about my ancestors, family and friends for the future generations. My main family lines are Franks/Phillips/Ingle/Martin. I am currently photographing and adding memorials for Greenview Memorial Gardens in East Moline, Rock Island County, IL.

I have kept records through the years, and have pictures I want to share. A photo tells a story. All photos I submit to findagrave are taken by me or handed down through my family. ALL PHOTOS I ADD TO FIND A GRAVE MAY BE USED IN YOUR FAMILY TREE OR HISTORY AND ONLY CREDIT GIVEN TO FINDAGRAVE.COM.

I have added memorials for people not related to me in hopes that family members or friends will find them. If you are closer related than I, I will gladly transfer.

A special thank you to Angie for the transfer of my parents and Rebekah for the transfer of my maternal grandparents:
George "Willis" Phillips
Dora Elizabeth Franks Phillips

And thank you to someone I do not know for the transfer of my paternal grandparents:
William "Bill" Denton Martin
Patience "Effie" Ann Ingle Martin.

My Grandparents lived in Marion County, AL in the Pea Ridge Community. I have many fond memories of them. I was fortunate to have known all four of my grandparents and three of my great-grandparents.

And thank you to rebekah for the transfer of my Uncle Thomas Leonard Phillips who was killed in action in World War II.

Those that have passed before us are more than a name and date. My goal is to have "meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it."

If only a year is shown on the headstone, dates are taken from the USSS Death Index . Information from obituaries is not always correct. If there are any mistakes, please let me know. I always appreciate and welcome additional information. If I have accidently created a duplicate, PLEASE let me know. If someone has added a photo that is of better quality, I will gladly delete mine.
Thank you to all who are dedicated to preserving our history.

If you have any questions, please contact me using the edit tab on any of the memorials that I manage or leave a message below.

Thank you
Thank You so much for photographing my Great Grandparents (Edward Howell Putnam and Francis Amelia Wicker Putnam and Grace Putnam) and Great Aunts gravestones. I never knew them but it really pleased me to see the stones.

Again, Thank you!

RE: Mathilda Miller edit
Thanks for correcting the formatting. My wife's great grandparents - Mathilda Plappina Coppens married Ferdinand VandeVoorde in 1881. If you wish to transfer that would be great.

Thank you so much for the picture of Edward's gravestone! This helped to confirm he was in the same company/regiment as his brothers. :)
