Bio Photo Hello,
The image on the left is of my grandfather and his brother. It was likely shot at the 1915 Lincoln Exposition in Chicago. Grandpa (on the right) stands on a prosthetic leg and is also missing his right arm. The loss of these limbs are a result of an encounter with a high power line while working as a roofer in Chicago. The "Human Torch" was able to recover and father three more children. If not for his will to survive I would not be here today, my father was conceived after the accident.

Thanks so much for doing this photo. My mom and I tried to find it when we were there in June but had no luck.

Thank you for taking the time to try to find the headstone for Mary Charlene Corcoran in St. Mary's/St. James Cemetery. It is worth knowing that there is no marker.

Thank you SO much!
I just wanted to thank you for the photos of Ira and Della McConougheys graves. Thank you for the extra effort of finding the plot for Ira, since he doesn't have a grave marker at all. Your time and effort is sincerely appreciated!

This is sad. We are in Rockford for a few days and went here. 5 family members and no markers at all. I looked into buying one stone that would cover all members. I have to think about that. I really can't afford it but they have nothing! Breaks my heart. Than you for the pictures.....💜
