Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogical research in the United States, the United Kingdom, Northern Ireland, and Germany since June of 1964. In Peoria County, Illinois I have photocopied all family articles for the entire printing of the Elmwood Gazette (140 years) and Brimfield News (90 years); and have done the same in Fulton County for the Farmington Bugle. I have researched original documents and excerpted articles from newspapers of family home towns in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Michigan, Iowa, Indiana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Oregon and California. Families of major interest are Germany: Schmidt, Korth, Notzke, Kessler, Gerber, Rupp, Schwartz, Heitzmann, Klein, Moschel, Scheerer, Schwender; Scotland: Wasson/Wason/Watson/Watsoun, Little, Hatch, Harper, Walker, Wyllie, Maybole, Livingstone, MacLea; Northern Ireland: Wasson, Thornton; England: Orton, Smith, Dixon, Archer, Bell, Dunn, Hurst, Lamb, Mitchinson, Prudhoe, Hovenden; New Hampshire: Thornton; Massachusetts: Butler, Seager, Howe; New York: Wasson, Dorn, Brewster, Ludlow; Nebraska: Burbank and Trim; Illinois/Oregon/California: Hovenden.
All are welcome to copy and use any biographical material or photographs I have posted.
I will always be happy to transfer any non-family memorials upon request.

Your Elk Point Photo Requests
Hi. I sent you a message on your listed email last weekend. We visited the Elk Point West Cemetery and got about 40 photos of the Smith family headstones. Please let me know how best to transfer them to you. Coleen

Wasson photo requests at Vale Cemetery
I did not find the names you requested, however, I did find A "Wasson" monument in that section. The big monument has the names and dates of Emma, Annie E, Willie H and Jennie May. below the names it says "children of Thomas & Mary J Wasson". Also in the plot are two white stones that only say "Mother" and "Father". A stone "J. May"(Jennies burial spot) and there is a spot for another stone (which is missing)One more foot stone of James Thomas Wasson 1893-1935. I think this is the whole plot for all you are looking for(it is quite a big plot), will return to Vale tomorrow to double check with their records. I have added the names and photos, except for the mother and father until i know exactly who they are by records

Photo request for O M Benedict at Mt Hope
While researching this photo request, I noticed that there is also an Oliver Mills Benedict Jr buried in Mt Hope (see ) and Find-a-Grave Memorial #8374250. In terms of relative ages, it seems more likely to me that your Mary L Wasson Benedict married Jr, rather than the Sr who you have shown her to be married to.

At any rate, we will try to get out and photograph both gravestones once the weather improves.
