|I have been fascinated by cemeteries since I was a kid. I grew up near the Old Baptist Cemetery in Hannibal - the one most people agree that Mark Twain used as a model for Tom Sawyer. That led me to other places. Over the years, I've explored a lot of cemeteries.|
Then, a few years ago, my mother got interested in geneology in a big way. She loved to research, and amassed a database of well-over 100,000 names. I'm now sorting through that database, and I've decided to help others in the same way.
So here I am, splitting my time between my own research, and documenting cemeteries in the area for other peoples' research. Let me know where you're looking, and I'll do my best to help. Feel free to use my images for your own geneology work - that includes using the images for Ancestry or Family Tree Maker. Please remember to give proper credit if you do any publishing. I prefer to be listed as Michael Mann, Quincy, IL

Thank you so much for getting this picture. I now live in Indiana & I don't often get back to that area. Have been working on the family tree for 30+ years & wondered where Emil was buried. Thank heaven for you & Find-a-grave. Again thank you.

|Janell Keuler||Uriah Potter|
Thanks for adding the photos of Uriah and Elizabeht POtter. Uriah is a brother to my g.g.grandfather. Since I live quite a distance from Hancock Co., Il, I don't know if I'll ever get to see it.
Thanks for cleaning the stone, too..

Thank you so much for taking the time to get a photo of the tombstone on the grave of Mary Marshall. Mary's descendants here in Kansas will enjoy seeing it and we do appreciate your efforts on our behalf!

Thank you so much for the picture of Clarence Asher's gravestone in the Columbus Cemetery in Columbus, Illinois. The work you do on Findagrave is wonderful, and I really appreciate your willingness to share! And I appreciate your bio that states that people may use your pictures for their trees! That is very refreshing!
It is people like you who make genealogy so much fun!!!

I received a hint in ancestry.com for your Find-a-grave entry for N McSherry. I have a
14 Feb 1836 in Ireland
02 Mar 1911
and I know he died in Quincy, Adams County. He was at the Old Soldiers and Sailors Home in Quincy.
Was anything legible on the tombstone so that I could be sure this is one and the same person?
Thanks much, Carole

|Steve Trudgeon||Whitaker - Photo Requests|
Thank you for all the great photos. It's unfortunate so many were unmarked but I still appreciate the huge favor.
|Dr. Charles R. Campbell||George Turnbaugh (1846)|
Tried to make a connection but could not find one in my family line. May be there but to far back to find with my present genealogy records. Thanks again for your assistance.
