Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Jacob Lake and I live near Rockford, Illinois. I have been a genealogist for about 5 years. I'm also a member of a few descendent and genealogical organizations. I love getting outside to walk and transcribe cemeteries, so if you have any photo requests please feel free to ask me. Usually I can make it out to a cemetery within a couple weeks of claiming a request.

RE: Duck Creek
Thanks for the quick reply. The two Lake memorials won't be duplicates, so you can change them over. There is already a memorial for Elizabeth Varvel (41968824), so if you don't mind deleting yours, that will be a fast solution. Don't forget to copy the photo on your Varvel memorial over to the other one.

Woodson county cemetery
Hi - you took photos of three grave markers at "Duck Creek Cemetery" - but I don't think a cemetery exists with that name. Were these at Siria Cemetery, norht of Yates Center? Thanks ~ Chris

RE: Sturdivan
Hi cousin!
We would be related then. I'm descended through Melissa Sturdivan's sister Nancy Sturdivan. Nancy Sturdivan married Nathaniel Frank McNatt. Their son Joesph Walter McNatt married Mae Deliah Liitjens, and their son William Verne McNatt was my grandfather.

I was the one who took and added the pictures of Elisabeth (Clark) Sturdivan and her daughter Nancy's gravestones to findagrave. I live in Texas now, but I had gone there on a trip several years ago with my grandfather and took a bunch of pictures at the cemetery.
I would definitely be interested in any pictures that you have.
you can email direct, if you wish, to

Bartlett grave
Thanks so much for trying to locate this grave. I got the information about its location from a genealogy researcher. Apparently it was incorrect.
