Bio and Links
Bio Photo After my father passed away in 2004, I found a passion for researching our family history. Its been the most enjoyable experience of my life. I love meeting new cousins online and sharing information. I am always willing to share any and all information I have gathered.

My fathers parents were both from Hancock County, Illinois, as well as each and every one of my direct lines for four more generations. I have spent a lot of time researching the people of that area.

I would like to express gratitude and love to those of you who have taken your precious time, money, and energy to take photos in the graveyards and those who post pics and info for others to view. What wonderful service you have provided for others.

Please keep in mind that my family tree work is subject to mistakes (some say it's the human in me). My feelings will not be hurt if you send me corrections. I'll always take the time to validate the info and I'll appreciate you for the time it takes to send corrections.

I always ask permissions to copy photos from findagrave. I will never use these photos for financial benefit. I consider myself ethical and mindful of others. I am forever grateful for the work others put in. I too, hope I can be of help to others.

Happy Searching!!

Remember: OCD is a gift if used wisely.

Thinking of you
You have had so much to grieve in all your losses lately, as Easter comes upon us and many reflect on the message of New Life, may you find comfort in knowing your angels are where they will be loved, where they will be happy and that your memories bring you happiness to this Season of Celebration. Holidays are always so hard, especially in those early days. Keeping you in my prayers.

RE: Photo Permissions
Hi Susie
Sorry for the delay- am about to put a sledgehammer through my computer. It has days when it'll work and most days it won't...! I think Ancestry now have a link to F.A.G. (I think they own it now don't they?). I had an email from them saying you can now upload photos etc to your Ancestry tree, so that'll save you having to get them from here, but feel free if you want. Have found some Pilkingtons in St James' Parish Church in Accrington- don't know if they could be yours or not! I'll send another message when I get my new pc this weekend (hopefully). Speak soon!

RE: Permissions
You took a beautiful picture of the Mt Washington Cemetery in Independence, Missouri back in 2002. May I copy this picture and add it to my ancestry tree please? I do not and will never profit from my family tree.

Also, if I run into other relatives photos on findagrave that you have posted may I copy those, as well, so I don't have to bother you again? I will, of course, always give you the photography credit.You deserve it.

Thank you for your time and the time you give to others. We all appreciate it. I hope your holiday season is happy and I'm wishing I was in Florida, too!


Sure Susie, thanks for asking! Have a wonderful weekend!

RE: Thanks
Hi Susie
The grave is a 'common' grave at Southern Cemetery in Manchester ie if you couldn't afford a family plot you could be buried along with a lot of strangers!
The surnames you are related to are from North Manchester around Prestwich,Whitefield, Radcliffe and Unsworth areas. The area they encompass was known as 'Pilkington'. If you look on the 1841 census for England you can see that these villages are referred to as Pilkington and your family names were at one time common in these areas.
Have you tried looking on the Lancashire Parish Clerk website? It doesn't have all the church/ burial ground registers on there, but there are some that may help you with your tree?
If I come across any graves in those areas I'll be adding them but my pc is on it's last legs so it may be sometime away!!!
Hope this helps (shout if I can be of any more help)

RE: Thank you so much

A native Utah'n,, ancestors running into the Manchester, Halifax and Leeds. A beautiful stretch of country side through the Calder Valley.. Graveyards atop the mountains (small hills to me), with cousins that I have found,, 1500 dates are real exciting when you can still actually read them... I had 150 or so headstones at the York cemetery. There is another just a short walk up the street past this GREAT fish and chips shop there in Church Gresley.. I have that one entirely, similar name..

Almost every bone yard in the Calder valley train run.. the two I just mentioned,, one atop the Hill in Leeds,, (Katie Middleton GGGf or something like that,, connects with my Midgley family)..

Couple of your surnames ring a bell,, I will copy them to the English folder..

Take Care,
