Bio and Links
Bio Photo I just love walking through cemeteries photographing headstones as there are usually so many interesting ones. It's amazing how much information one can get from these headstones, especially the older ones. I believe in immortalizing what we can of these stones for the future and let others know that at one point in time, these people lived.

As Findagrave states: "The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree."


Please remember to ALWAYS thank the Photo Volunteer for their time in locating your family's grave and taking the photo for you. Many people are becoming very rude in not thanking those who go out of their way to help them and many requests go unfulfilled because of it. Remember we are in this together to help each other and a simple Thank You goes a long way.

Feel free to use the photos of your loved ones resting place for your genealogy research and your personal family tree.

PLEASE, PLEASE SEND ALL CORRECTIONS, ADDITIONS, LINKS, ETC FROM THE EDIT BUTTON (THAT IS WHY IT IS THERE) ON THE MEMORIAL. IT WILL SAVE SO MUCH TIME IN SEARCHING FOR THE CORRECT MEMORIAL AS THE NUMBERS THAT ARE TYPED IN ON EMAILS AND IN THE MESSAGE BOARD ARE NOT ALWAYS GOING TO THE CORRECT MEMORIALS.

PLEASE NOTE: I WILL ALWAYS ADD THE FINDAGRAVE CONTRIBUTOR'S NAME AND/OR ID NUMBER FOR INFORMATION SUPPLIED TO BE ADDED TO THE BIO. DUE TO MANY INSTANCES WHERE WRONG INFORMATION AND LINK REQUESTS HAS BEEN SUPPLIED THAT WERE INCORRECT, I AM THE ONE THAT RECEIVES THE NASTY MESSAGES ON HOW I POSTED THE WRONG INFORMATION. WITH THAT SAID, PLEASE REMEMBER TO INCLUDE WHERE YOU FOUND THE INFORMATION FROM (i.e.: familysearch.org, census, IDS (Illinois Death Stillbirth index), family bible, etc) so please include the information for cross reference. Thank you.

RE: St Marys
Yes II did. I never got the chance to get The Kaucic Plot. It was my first time there. A pretty old cemetery with a lot of stones grown over. Speaking of there, I was wondering where the Beckmann's plot is. You know, Henry Beckman, 1897-1944. Arebhis brothers and sisters next to him? Thanks

THANK YOU, for adding the fotos to the Luther Whitney and family memorials. Until now I didnt know they have footstones. Do you recall from LtoR what order they are in. Luther and my great great grandfather were brothers.
