Bio and Links
Bio Photo Most of my family settled in Adams and Brown counties, Illinois, therefore my focus has started in these areas.

I am interested in helping other people find their families by entering memorials and filling photo requests. While I'm searching I take extra pictures to place on FAG.

Please notify me if you would like something added, corrected or deleted on a memorial that I have entered. I will respond to those that follow the Find a Grave guidelines and use the EDIT link.

Thanks to all who have helped with information, photos, additions and corrections.

RE: Emma Combs
I used the Birth Date Calculator from Pro Genealogists to come up with the birth date of 22 Aug 1860

Nancy may be having senior moments. Sorry

RE: Mary Tobie at Prairie City
I removed the photos so could you please add them to Mary Hodgson's site I created. Not trying to steal your thunder, just give a good representation. I certainly appreciate your photos.

RE: Mary Ellen Walter
We did make note of Mary Ellen's alternate grave on the Housh Walter Sumner Cemetery memorial for her. This would appear to be the best way to take care of both memorials. Thank you for the suggestion. Nancy G.

Mary Ellen Walter
CJ, Found where Mary Ellen Walter has two stones. One in Housh Walter Sumner Cemetery and the other in Maquon Cemetery. Same years. This may be confusing but I believe this is indeed the same person. I found no parents buried in Housh, but her stone says dau of T & S.J Walter. I believe she is buried in Housh. When her parents died, they had a new stone made for her and put it in Maquon where they were buried.

Mary Ellen in Housh Walter Sumner is #100252903
Mary Ellen in Maquon is #62413411

Your thoughts on this?
Tom G.
