Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born, raised and live in beautiful Northwestern Illinois. I love searching through old cemeteries for my family and helping others find theirs. I hope to get photos taken at many of the area cemeteries and posted on Find A Grave, as time permits. I am our family genealogist and love history and antiquing.


Some of the family surnames I am researching: Lyon/Lyons, Johnson, Finkenbinder, Ortmeier, Knauer, Miller, Manion, Vertrees, Goodmiller, Machamer, Culbertson, Krugjohann, Handel, Schleuning, Oldham, Layman, Nalley, Millet, Edwards, Keck, Stone, Dubs, Lehman/Lehmann, Throne, Long, Clay, DeLong, Keeler

On my husbands side: Groezinger, Koepp, Gerner, Slonecker, Mapes, Osterday, Justus, Byrum, Beardsley

The name on this memorial should be Ardella instead of Arabella Mack. Ardella is the name given on Walter Daniel Mack's Marriage Records for the state of Illinois. Ardella is the daughter of Jacob and Beulah Cain.

I'm requesting permission to use the photos of Catherine Snyder Finkenbinder's headstones on her memorial in my family tree. She is my 2nd great grandmother on my mother's side. Thank you in advance.

Thank you for transferring Milton. His father was John B. Flack, but I do no know who the John Flack is that you mentioned.

Traci Fields
SUCCESS!

Because of you and other wonderful findagrave friends, Traci now has 5,260 flowers/tokens, and her birthday is a little over a week away. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! We appreciate you all so much.

I'm in awe! To show you more of what Traci was like, I posted the following on her memorial page,

"Traci, my angel, I can see the big grin on your face for all the flowers you're receiving on your memorial page. You're telling me, "Mom, why are you so surprised there are so many good people in this world? You should have known that....." "You're right, sweetheart, I should have known".

Traci was a person of strong faith, and GOD took excellent care of her, and helped her through all her hardships! Her faith never waivered.

GOD, bless them all, and thank you for your wonderful gift of Traci.

We've received an outpouring of so much love for Traci. I will try to get to everyone's site and leave a flower/token for at least one of their loved ones. However, there are so many of you, it will take me a while.

Token you left for Traci Fields
thank you very much for the token you left for my angel daughter, Traci. She was a wonderful gift from GOD, and she's in my heart and mind every single day. Her passing has left major holes in the hearts of her family and friends.

I appreciate you helping to reach my goal of 5,000 tokens by her birthday, November 20th.

I'm thankful and blessed for your kindness. GOD bless you for your heavenly heart.

Woodbine Cemetery
Do you know if this is near the Flack/Bethel Cemetery? I found an index for Jo Daviess Co. Ill that listed about 7 people, but that 16 to 18 sites were used and that only 2 stones were intact and upright in 1978.

Cemetery is in the east half of the northwest quarter of Section 35.

Thank you for any help on this as the cemetery name is not listed on Find A Grave.
