|Bio and Links|
I've always been interested in family history and genealogy, and doing a family history project where I was able to trace my grandmother's family back to 1600's Germany really fueled it.|
Many of my memorials are for non-relative's graves that I photograph while walking through cemeteries. Please let me know if you would like any transferred to you.
The following text comes from "The Braidwood Story" which was published in 1957 and "is dedicated to the Pioneers of Braidwood, Illinois, to those who later promoted the city's welfare and to the interested generations that follow."
Joseph Honzik and wife came from Bohemia to America and Braidwood in 1877. He was employed in the mines until his retirement. They were the parents of a
large family, including the following boys: Jacob, Joseph, Anthony and Frank.
The widow survives and still lives here (1956), as do Joseph and Anthony of Chicago, who have summer homes here.
Joseph L., the youngest son, is an artist, who prepared the several pen and ink drawings that appear in the book."
Although this information has a few errors (the boys were named Joseph, Anthony, William, Frank, and George,) the book provide a treasured account of daily life and history in my grandfather Frank Honzik's hometown of Braidwood, Illinois.
Please visit the memorials I created for my grandfather and my cat.

Thank you for notifying me of the duplicates, it's so difficult to keep track when you're adding so many graves at once.

You are correct about the entry # 5522388 alraedy existing, but he has the name misspelled, that's why it didn't come up in a search. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

It's not. On the memorial you have the photo of Alice's grave. Maybe next to it like I said.
|Carolyn Andrews||George Wilson|
Thanks for the information on George Wilson. I have added the information to his bio.

I don't know who Mattie is. He was married only once. Possibly a sister? I'll start looking. Thanks again.

|Donna White||re: Etta Bell memorial|
you posted a photo for Etta Bell in Maricopa, Arizona and the poster has it listed as unknown...can you post an edit and email the poster as to what cemetery the gravestone is in?
I'm not sure what changes I suggested, I think it might have been small things such as the birth and death dates. Thanks!
